The Perfect Reason Stamp of Approval Blog Hop Day 3

Hi, Hi, Hi!
Welcome to Day Three of The Perfect Reason Stamp of Approval Blog Hop! Haven't the creations been just incredible so far?!?!?! You should have arrived here from Lydia's Blog!

Tomorrow is the big day; the Stamp of Approval will be ready to order! Don't know what Stamp of Approval is?!?! It is anexclusive collection of products that were designed just for the box. The stamps and dies in the Stamp of Approval Collections won’t be released for individual sale for several months over at the Catherine Pooler store.

Here are the first three cards I've created for today's hop (more are in store on Release Day and in Stamp Nation, which only members can view)!



The above card was created with The Perfect Reason stamp set and coordinating dies, along with Catherine Pooler inks Midnight, Orange Twist, Aquatini, Party Dress, Lime Rickey and Tiara. I simply die cut multiple pieces and stacked them up on a small 4.25 x 4.25 top folding card.



The above card uses The Perfect Vines die (as a mask), the You Did It stamp Set, The Perfect Reason stamp set, along with Catherine Pooler inks Midnight, Grass Skirt and Lime Rickey.  I die cut the Perfect Vines using plain white paper, then used repositionable adhesive to hold them down as I added inks over the top of the Kraft card.  I also stamped the vines and circles to add more interest in the inked up areas.



The above card was created with the You Did It and the Perfect Reason stamp sets, along with Catherine Pooler inks Midnight, Party Dress, Tiara, Orange Twist, Grass Skirt and Flirty Fuchsia.  I inked up the stamps and then stamped them onto watercolor cardstock.  I used a waterbrush to soften up the images and make them look like they were watercolored as opposed to stamped!


Now it's time to keep going!!!Next on the hop is Ingrid!!! 


Now, keep on hopping! And check back with all of us tomorrow! We will be sharing more projects to inspire you!!!! Good Luck!
