Catherine Pooler:: Celebrate Friends Stamp of Approval Collection


Have you heard of the limited edition collections offered by Catherine Pooler Designs called Stamp of Approval?! Past releases have been spectacular and this one is just as spectacular and truly tons of fun!

Let me help introduce the Stamp of Approval Celebrate Friends Collection! The Stamp of Approval Celebrate Friends is an exclusive collection. The products were designed exclusively for this box, are brand new and won't be available separately for a number of months.



This happy box is jam packed full of items that are perfect for the coffee or tea lover, as well as to celebrate birthdays, accomplishments, etc.! I really love how all the items and add-ons of the collection work so well together. New for this Stamp of Approval, you can choose the Coffee Lovers Collection, Tea Lovers Collection, or both!


For my first project, I started with a panel of Catherine Pooler's Ultra Smooth White Cardstock, inked the Scattered Circles Stencil with embossing ink and heat embossed in white. This was mounted to a blue card stock base. (affiliate links used) Then I die cut coffee mugs and inked them up with It's A Boy Ink. One was inked on the right side of the cut, the other on the wrong side, forming mirror image mugs! I added some detail to the mugs with the Perfect Blend Stamp Set and Nuvo Drops. I die cut a sentiment from the Sweet Die in Black Cardstock and a stamped sentiment from the WooHoo Stamp Set. I finished by adding a tiny heart stamped in Party Dress and a few pink details by the sentiment.


I have another fun card featuring the new items from the new collection-this time focusing on the celebration aspect of the collection! I started with a square card base and panel using Catherine Pooler Ultra Smooth White Cardstock. I matted the white panel with Black Cardstock. Onto the panel, I stamped a series of confetti from the Woo-Hoo Stamp Set in Flirty Fuschia, Bellini, Midnight, Tiki Torch and Tiara Ink. I added a die cut sentiment cut from Black Cardstock and the new Hooray Die and a stamped sentiment from the Woo-Hoo Stamp Set.


I finished the card by stamping the cute party hats in the Woo-Hoo Stamp Set, and die cutting them in the coordinating Woo-Hoo Dies. So, there is also a new ink color debuting in this collection, and I'll have a card on Tuesday featuring it, I can't wait for you to see it!
