Stamp of Approval coming soon Stamp of Approval Inlaid Die Cut Tag and Stenciled Background

Today’s video is one where I changed directions a couple times and at the end had three different cards!  View the video to see the process and also the nitty gritty details on the Stamp of Approval release later this week.

Ooooh, I can’t WAIT!

Be sure to scroll down after the video – a few of our DT members have projects today, too!

A quick recap…the response to Stamp of Approval has been way WAY beyond our expectations and that is AMAZING!  I am beyond thrilled that you all see the value in this.

I know I haven’t announced the price yet…we will do so when the box goes live.  I can tell you this: there are several stamp sets, sets of dies, a stencil and a sequin mix in the collection.  The price for the SOA box will be lower than that actual retail price of the items.

Stamp of Approval is while supplies last.  We did our best guess when ordering, but due to the response, we are pretty sure we are going to sell out very quickly.

Join us on Wednesday for a BLOG HOP to celebrate the release of Stamp of Approval.  The Dream Team, plus our guests will be sharing their incredible creations using the goodies from the box and I will be letting you know when the box will go on sale.

StampNation Members that are ALSO on the Wait List will get the email with the link to buy FIRST.    An hour or so later, the link will be emailed to the general wait list.

If supplies remain, sales will open for everyone the next day.

Got it?  GREAT!

Let’s take a good look at the projects:

  • Jennifer Hovermale August 3, 2015, 2:50 pm

    These cards are so beautiful!! My creative juices are already flowing and bursting with ideas how to use these few products from the SOA box!!! I am hoping that I have a chance to order!!

    I was looking forward to your newest launch of your fun little box. However as I’m not a member of Stamp Nation I was unhappy that the members get the first opportunity to purchase the little box that you announced to the general audience. Because so many were interested now suddenly we who are not in SN are selected to wait at the back of the line. This does not entice me in any way to join Stamp Nation.
    On a more positive note, I wish you luck and success. Also, please know that I enjoy your fun videos with your spontaneity and fun approach. Cheryl Shaw

    Really cool cards and fab products! xxx

  • Catherine August 3, 2015, 7:29 pm

    Hi Cheryl! I’m so sorry that you are unhappy!
    There really is no way for me to know how many people are actually going to purchase a box and it may not sell out to members! They will get the link just a bit before the general list.
    Thank you for your compliments, Cheryl.

    What fun looking cards. Thanks Catherine for coming up with such great cards.

  • Sandra Johnston August 3, 2015, 7:43 pm

    Catherine, I love all three cards! What a great box of supplies! I am always amazed at your creative process when you make cards. Talking through your thought process is so much better than just giving measurements and showing how to do it. Some of us are not blessed with natural artistic creativity, so it helps to understand the “why” something is done. You are a great mentor and have helped me so much over the past several years!!
    Love ya,

    I think we speak the same language. First with “sistah” and now with “love ya”. This is the way I sign all my cards so I’m so excited to see it in a die. I love how you traced the circle stencil for these cards and the colorful flowers look like candy!!

  • TracyM #6773 August 6, 2015, 12:59 am

    COOL stencil, EXCITING techniques and FABULOUS cards!!!

  • Jen lubinsky August 6, 2015, 1:12 am

    I love them all.. Can’t wait to buy the box. Fingers crossed.

  • Janice H. September 20, 2015, 7:05 pm

    I CANNOT tell you enough how much I love this collection. I have made four cards already and just picked my box up!!!! Lol Thank you so much again and for these card ideas in particular. I LOVE the tag idea and can’t wait to use it on Christmas card ideas. :-)
