Counting Blessings Stamp of Approval Blog Hop Day 1


A new Stamp of Approval is being released this week.  The name of this limited edition collection is near and dear to my heart: Counting Blessings.  I'm so excited to share a couple of my projects with you today!  This first one is included in the project guide that will be emailed to you after you purchase the collection. 

My first card uses one of the 2 stencils included in this collection to make a rainbow of leaves.  Isn't that a fun, yet simple idea?


Paper: Basic Black (SU) Bright White (CPD)
Accessories: Tags, Etc. Dies, Marching Leaves Stencil, Thankful Die (SOA) White Embossing Powder (SU)


My second card uses the unique Fallen Leaves Dies.  First I die cut a row of leaves out of my card panel.  The I die cut some leaves from paper that had been sponged with Bellini and Flirty Fuchsia inks.  I did a partial inlay die cut technique, using the white outline die and select sponged fillers from the dies.  Next I did my stamping. The final touch was to splatter with a little black ink using a spritzer tool and mount it on some light gray cardstock. 



Accessories: Basic Black Marker, Spritzer Tool (SU) Fallen Leaves Die (SOA)


These collections sell out fast, so make sure you are on the waitlist to find out as soon as they go up for sale.  Our last release sold out before it could go live to the public.  Only those on StampNation and the waitlist had the opportunity to snatch one.

WAIT LIST SUBSCRIBE: WWW.CPSTAMPOFAPPROVAL.COM


Now on to the fun stuff.  Let's see how some of the other designers on the team were inspired and give you a chance to win one of these new collections for yourself.  All you have to do is comment on each stop on the hop for your chance to win.  Come back tomorrow and Tuesday for days 2 & 3 of the hop.
