Die Cutting Heat Embossing Techniques

Stamp of Approval Holiday Magic Collection Blog Hop with GIVEAWAY

Welcome to the Stamp of Approval Holiday Magic collection blog hop!!!  If you’ve arrived from Isha’s blog, you are on the right track!  You’ve been seeing sneaks all week long of what’s in this magical collection and today is no exception! The Design Team and guest designers have knocked it out of the park today!!!  As a friendly recap,  Stamp of Approval is a  new venture by the fabulous Catherine Pooler launched in August!  Her previous collection sold out in roughly two hours!!!!!!

Stamp of Approval is NOT a kit 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.  The Stamp of Approval is an exclusive collection of stamps, dies and accessories hand picked by Catherine Pooler. The products included in this collection will not be available to the general public until 2016!   Not only do these products work fabulously together but they’ll also work incredibly well with supplies you already own.

Supplies are limited so make sure you visit Stamp of Approval to get on the waitlist to be notified when the boxes are available for purchase! You won’t have to wait long… Maybe just a couple of days, cough cough!  OH OH! You’ll also want to make sure and comment on this post (and the rest of the stops on the hop) for a chance to win a box!!

I decided to feature the GORGEOUS SNOWFLAKE DIES from the collection for today’s project! SWOON SWOON SWOON! Seriously. Holy smokes… The detail of each snowflake is incredible. I created my own gold sparkly panel with this gorgeous Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder and the snowflakes were die cut with white pearl shimmering cardstock! I left some of the bits inside the snowflakes for some added fun!


The sentiment from another stamp set in the collection was stamped onto black cardstock and heat embossed in white to really pop off the page. Added a tiny bit of gold thread in the background and done….


Now it’s time to hop on over to Lisa Harrolle!!!  Remember, be sure to comment along the way at each of the hop stops for your chance to win this magical collection!
