Stamp of Approval Blog Hop

Hello sweet friends! Today I am joining a fun blog hop for the Catherine Pooler Stamp of Approval box. For more information and to sign up for the wait list, please go here.
Julie and Shay from Winnie & Walter created a beautiful stamp set included in that box and we would like to show you some samples.


Their stamp set is called Scenery: Holiday Trimmings and it is a fun set of borders for your Christmas crafting! This is a card I made with it:


I used the tree border and created a background pattern, stamping it repeatedly and heat-embossing it with white embossing powder. Then I inked the panel with various Distress Inks and added splatters of ink and water. After everything was dried, I adhered the panel to a matching card base. Now I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment border onto black card stock and cut out three words. I adhered them to the card and finished it off with matching sequins.


Fun, isn't it? Be sure to comment along this blog hop for your chance to win a Stamp of Approval box. 2 winners will be randomly picked from all the comments throughout the blog hop to receive the Holiday Magic Collection Stamp of Approval Box.  Please comment by Friday, noon EST.

Blog hop order:

Thank you for stopping by today and happy hopping!

Vanessa
