Welcome to Day 3 of the Winterhaven Stamp of Approval Blog hop! All the hoppers participating in todays hop are linked at the end of this post. And there are prizes! More on that in a bit! Be sure to join the wait list so you can be notified right away when the Winterhaven Stamp of Approval collection is available for purchase. They sell out fast so I highly recommend you getting on that wait list. Release day is TOMORROW! If you want to see what’s in this collection, Catherine has been sneaking (well not really, she is SHOWING) a few products each day on her blog
To recap for those that may not know – Stamp of Approval is a quarterly hand picked, exclusive 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. Be sure to subscribe to the Wait List so you will be emailed the purchase link when the collection goes on sale!
Onto my cards! I have two cards and one video to share. I’m using a gorgeous background stamp and stand alone die set for this card. I also did the iron off embossing technique. The benefits of iron off embossing is you can stamp directly onto your panel (where as if the embossing powder was there, it would resist any ink you put down) and it appears as if I hand painted the background because all of the embossing powder was removed.
You can watch the video here on the blog or by clicking HERE and heading to my youtube channel to watch in HD!
I added a few Nuvo drops to embellish the wreath. All ink colors are Catherine Pooler inks (exact colors below in the supply list).
My next card feature this adorable die set with little houses!!!! I combined it with another stamp set for the sentiment…
I added some texture with a snow marker and glossy accents…. Again, all colors used here are Catherine Pooler Inks! I adore these little houses!!!!! And the Merry Christmas font is gorgeous isn’t it? I heavily sprayed the entire card with a shimmer spray so it really sparkles!
Want a chance to win the entire collection?
One winner will be chosen at random from each day’s comments and announced on OCTOBER 11th on Catherine’s blog. The winners will win their box and if they already bought it, they will be issued a Gift Certificate worth $100 towards a future purchase.
