Catherine Pooler Designs:: Adoring You Stamp of Approval Collection


You are in for quite a treat, as the newest Catherine Pooler Designs called Stamp of Approval has arrived! Past releases have been spectacular and this one is just as spectacular!


Let me help introduce the Stamp of Approval Adoring You Collection! The Stamp of Approval Adoring You 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 Valentine's Day, but as my products showcase today, perfect for any time of the year. I really love how all the items and add-on of the COLLECTION work so well together.

For my first project, I started with a panel made from Catherine Pooler's Ultra Smooth White Cardstock. Using some soft brushes, I created a serene background with the following inks: Seafoam and Skylight, and then stamped the Love Notes Background Stamp in Skylight. On top of that, I added some more texture with leaves from the Sweet Home Wreath Stamp Set. Then, I stamped a two part sentiment, using stamps from Congratulations Sentiments and The Key Stamp Sets(affiliate links used)


I finished the card with some stamped and cut keys from The Key Stamp Set and corresponding add-on The Key Dies Set from Sand Dunes Cardstock.  The keys are hung from the panel with black string and the panel was mounted onto a Sand Dunes Cardstock card.

I have another card featuring the new items from the new collection!


This card is has a romantic vibe to it. I once again started with Catherine Pooler Ultra Smooth White Cardstock as a base and inked the Love Notes Background Stamp in It's a Boy Ink and then used a soft brush to ink up the edges. I then used the cool Adore Die to die cut a "window" from Ultra Smooth White Cardstock and set this aside. I created a little scene of birds on a branch using the Happy Together Stamps and corresponding add-on Happy Together Dies. (Inks used: Bellini, Coral Cabana, Icing on the Cake, Lime Ricky, Garden PartyIt's a Girl and Party Dress).


I layered the window die over the bird scene and then I finished by creating a custom banner covering some Ultra Smooth White Cardstock with Lime Ricky and stamping a sentiment from Congratulations Sentiments with  Garden Party.


One last card for today...for this Congratulations card I started with a square card base made from Catherine Pooler Ultra Smooth White Cardstock and then onto it I stamped the beautiful Love Notes Background Stamp in Twilight Ink. On the middle of the card, I stamped the sentiment from Congratulations Sentiments, also in Twilight Ink. To create interest, I created four panels by die cutting the add-on Backsplash Dies from Smoke Cardstock. I backed each panel with the amazing Vellum Cardsock.


Before adhering each backsplash die, I colored the vellum backs with Copic Markers for a stainglass look.
