Hi everyone! Welcome to Day 3 of the Tropically Yours Stamp Of Approval Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from ILINA’s BLOG. The complete list is below if you get lost along the way.
The collection goes up for sale on tomorrow, July 19th at 9am to those on the Wait List. Ordering opens to the public (6pm EST) the same day if the collection hasn’t sold out already. StampNation members that are on the Wait List will be notified first (a little perk of being a member!) and then the rest of the Wait List will be contacted!
**The box is only available while supplies last.**
Make sure that you are on the Wait List to be notified as soon as its available!
Let’s check out a couple of cards I made with this collection. I made sure to use a new ink color (available separately) so look closely!
This card features the Stand Tall and Tropically Yours stamp sets from the collection. The Stand Tall coordinating die set is available as an add on. I blended four Catherine Pooler ink colors to create that gorgeous background. (Juniper Mist, Royal Treatment, Mandarin Spice and Tiara). I sprayed the Grunge background stamp with water and stamped it onto the ink blended background and LOVE LOVE LOVE the look.
Then I stamped the images with Midnight ink. I thought Vellum flamingos would be perfect to add to this card….
My next card features the Leave me in Paradise stamp set and showcases how gorgeous Catherine Pooler inks are when combined with water! I inked up the images with various colors of ink and the NEW INK color and spritzed the stamp with water and then stamped…
The center of the florals are stamped in Black Jack ink and the sentiment really pops thanks to the Midnight ink.
