Candy Cane Lane Stamp of Approval Blog Hop

It's almost time for the newest Stamp of Approval release, the Candy Cane Lane collection.  This collection is just as cute as its name.   To celebrate this release Catherine is having 3 days of blog hops and 3 collections will be given away.  Today is my day to join in the blog hop.


Originally I made this card for the challenge this week at StampNation, but Catherine wanted to put it in the PDF, so all of you could see it too.  :)  Did you know that every collection comes with a downloadable PDF filled with loads of ideas and instructions from the entire design team?  If your mojo has disappeared this new collection and the PDF is sure to spark it back to life!


Stamps: Hip Holiday, Merry and Bright Boughs, Peppermint Stick (Catherine Pooler Designs for SOA Candy Cane Lane Collection)
Ink: Bermuda Cucumber Crush, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point, Real Red (Stampin' Up) Cotton Candy, Lavender Fields, Ripe Raspberry (My Favorite Things) Onyx Black (Versafine)
Paper: Real Red, Whisper White (Stampin' UP)
Accessories: Merry Label Dies (Cas-ual Fridays Stamps for SOA Candy Cane Lane) 


In case you prefer to watch the video and not wait for the instructions, here it is.  :)

I'll be sharing cards all week made using this festive collection, so be sure to check back here often.  If you would like to be notified when the collection goes on sale, sign up to be added to the waitlist at cpstampofapproval.com


Now it is time to hop along and leave comments for your chance to win one of 3 collections Catherine Pooler will be giving away.  Up next is the super talented and creative Laurie Willison.  Don't forget to leave a comment here too!
