Rainbow Butterfly Video using Stamp of Approval Beautiful World Collection

Squeal! It’s here! It’s here! Allow me to introduce you to the Stamp of Approval Beautiful World collection!!! It will be available for sale to the public on April 20th! To purchase, you just need to sign up for the wait list. You will be emailed the moment the collection goes on sale!   More on that in a bit.

Today, I have a card and video to share with you all that uses some products from the newest Stamp of Approval Beautiful World collection and Clarity Stencil Brushes.  You can watch the video right here on the blog or over on my Youtube channel in HD by clicking HERE!

Stamp of Approval collections are not kits and there is no subscription involved.  A new collection will be released quarterly and you can choose whether or not you’re interested in that quarter’s box.   Not only do these products work fabulously together but they’ll also work incredibly well with supplies you already own.

The butterflies in this stamp set is gorgeous and I love it against the rainbow background created with distress inks and the Clarity Stencil brushes. The two “You” dies that come in the collection are fantastic!

LB 9159 Sneak

I wanted to pair these gorgeous butterflies with a rainbow background and I love the You dies that come in the collection along with a coordinating stamp set that makes lots of fun custom sentiments when you combine the two. I added some glitter with the Spectrum Noir Glitter pen to the butterfly and around the black card base so this card really sparkles! I also added some shading to the butterflies with water.


The Stamp of Approval Beautiful Mind collection is chalk full of stamp sets and dies that are great to use on their own or paired with products you currently own! That’s one of many reasons I love these collections. They are hand picked by Catherine Pooler and in most cases, hand designed by Catherine herself. To purchase the collection, you have to sign up to be on the wait list. They are while supplies last so once they are gone, they are gone. Some of the manufacturers that designed products for the collection release the product 6 months later in their stores.

I hope you all have an amazing day!!! 🙂
