I shared several projects using a few goodies from the Perfect Reason Stamp of Approval collection on Monday! There were also three days of blog hops so you should have seen all the products in the collection if you hopped along with us. If you missed any, head to Catherine’s blog and check it out!

Today I have two more projects to share with you! This first card using the Paisley Peacock stamp set and coordinating die along with the Catherine Pooler inks. Isn’t the peacock gorgeous?  A lot of the designers used the paisley stamps from the set and created gorgeous backgrounds and unique prints. I wasn’t that clever! I just used those images on the peacock!  I used probably every color of ink Catherine carries on this card, lol! Do you know that most of my card start out from a white piece of cardstock? 🙂

My second card uses the Everyday Mod stamp set. It’s a wonderful set compiled of graphic borders and images.  I’m weird. When I saw this image, I saw a girl. With long black hair. That is not what this image is intended to be but that’s what I saw.. So a girl she became! Or even a ninja. LOL. Tell me you see this. Please…. HA!

I used Midnight ink on this card. If you work quickly, you can actually heat emboss with this ink as it stays wet longer than a traditional dye ink! Because I heat embossed, I was able to color in the “face” with Copic Markers:) The black flicks are also from the Midnight ink pad. I just watered the ink down a little bit with flicked on the color with a paintbrush.

This is the 7th Stamp of Approval Collection! It doesn’t seem long ago when Catherine spilled the beans with her 1st collection! I am so honored to be part of this.

The Perfect Reason Stamp of Approval collection is finally available for purchase while supplies last! As history has shown, these collections sell out in a matter of days. Just sayin’ 🙂
