Welcome to day ONE of the Candy Cane Lane Blog Hop!!! There are three days total and different designers are hopping along on each day! We’ve got a fun line up for you today! The Stamp of Approval collection will be available on the 21st! Just three days from now!!!!
To recap for those that may not know – Stamp of Approval is a hand picked, exclusive collection of products that were designed just for the box (the boxes are adorable by the way) that releases quarterly.The stamps and dies in the Stamp of Approval Collections are brand spanking new and won’t be released for individual sale for several months over at the Catherine Pooler store. Not only do you get a box full of amazing stamps and dies, but you’ll get a FREE downloadable PDF Project Guide with tons of project tutorials using the items from the collection! Be sure to subscribe to the Wait List so you will be emailed when the collection goes on sale on the 21st! The first round of emails go out at 9AM EST to StampNation members (perk of being a member) and the rest of the emails go out to everyone else on the waiting list at 10AM EST. It will be offered to the public (those not on the wait list or a member of StampNation) on the 22nd.
I have two cards and a video to share with you today! I made many more projects, but since this is a hop, I know you have loads to see. So I’ll be posting the rest of my projects throughout the next few weeks! Let’s first take a look at the card and video! I used the Merry and Bright Boughs stamp set and the Merry Labels Die. You can watch the video right here on the blog or over on my youtube channel in HD by clicking HERE!
And a few close ups of the card! Since I have a video to go along with this card, I won’t bore you with a written explanation of how I made this one:
For my second card, I used the Candy Cane Lane stamp set and coordinating die! That stag! Is awesome! The other designers made some AMAZING projects with this stag! I decided to keep my stag simple by stamping it with one color, heat embossed his patterned neck add a splash of color in the background using some watercolors.
If you look carefully, you can see the vellum label! See it? It’s from the Merry Labels die!
