Parade of Holiday SOA Cards and your chance to Win the January Stamp of Approval Collection!

Share This!

StampOfApproval_Win_blog2 You purchased the Holiday Magic Stamp of Approval Collection.

You made a bunch of cards.

Now it’s time to enter your cards in the Linky for a chance to WIN the next Stamp of Approval Collection (releasing at the end of January!)!

How to:

  • Photograph your card.
  • Upload your card to your blog, the StampNation Gallery, Instagram, Flickr, Pinterest, etc….
  • Grab the URL of your card and enter it in the linky.
  • Tell your friends to come over here and vote for you!


VOTING AND WINNING:  Link up your creations through December 20 at 6 pm Eastern.  Voting will start then and you have until December 22nd 11:55 pm Eastern to have your friends and family vote for your card!  Winners will be announced on December 23.  Just in time for Christmas!

We will have THREE (different) winners!!!  One random winner as well as the top two vote-getters.


Fine Print:  ***To be eligible to win, your card must be made with the stamps and dies from the Holiday Magic SOA Collection (almost) exclusively.  We won’t disqualify you for including an extra goody or two (we know you have other products that are magical, too!), just make sure most of the card uses SOA products.***

As this linky fills up with YOUR amazing creations, we will have a Parade of Holiday SOA cards to keep you inspired for any last minute holiday card and tag making that you need to do.

 (If you don’t have the Holiday SOA, no worries!  There will be a chance for you to win this box with the release blog hop!)

The next Stamp of Approval collection goes on sale at the end of January – be sure you are on the wait list so you get all of our updates and the link to purchase when it goes live!  Click here to join.

    Are we still on the wait list if we are members of Stamp Nation or do we need to get on it again?

  • Traci Lord December 9, 2015, 6:48 pm

    Hi Catherine, I was just wondering how many entries per person are allowed?

  • Catherine December 9, 2015, 10:32 pm

    You can enter as many times as you’d like!

    Patty, if you are on the wait list, you stay on the wait list and don’t have to sign up again :)

  • Sue Smith December 10, 2015, 2:41 pm

    Would love to share my cards, however, I am so computer illiterate that I have no clue how to proceed !! However, I do love my Holiday SOA box. Keep up the great work. I love the energy, and ideas you send out in your videos. God bless you and yours always.

  • Adriana December 10, 2015, 2:48 pm

    I love all Catherines vídeos, and stamps and dies Of the Stamp Of Approval. Congrats! And thanks For all your support with my shipment issue.

  • Char Myers December 11, 2015, 12:28 am

    I LOVE the idea of the giveaway! I ordered the Holiday Box & loved what was inside! I can’t afford to buy this one (great idea about setting aside what I would normally spend) & am totally geeked about a chance to win

  • Susan December 11, 2015, 12:30 am

    Now wouldn’t it just make my day if you pulled my name from your magic hat. ;-)

  • Marianne December 11, 2015, 7:29 am

    Is it OK to link up SOA cards that we have already published on our blog prior to December 9th?

  • Catherine December 11, 2015, 9:07 am

    Marianne – oh absolutely! It doesn’t matter WHEN you made or blogged about the card! We are just looking for Holiday SOA goodness! :)

  • Patty Beers December 11, 2015, 8:21 pm

    Sorry for duplicate link. I don’t know how to get rid of mistakes. I seem to have a problem with linking things and when I try to correct it, I get duplicates. Link #20 doesn’t go anywhere. The correct one is #21.

  • Catherine December 12, 2015, 12:16 am

    No problem at all, Patty! I took care of that for you.
    Thank you for linking, LOVE your card!

  • Amy A. December 12, 2015, 3:53 pm

    Hi Catherine,
    The 2 highest vote-getters. Is that the card with the most votes or the person with the most votes who have entered multiple cards? Thanks!

  • Catherine December 13, 2015, 9:38 am

    Hi Amy! The card with the most votes wins :)

  • Denise Candelaria December 13, 2015, 10:56 am

    you say “Upload your card to your blog, the StampNation Gallery, Instagram or Flickr” are these the only places where we can post our cards? I was looking a some of the cards and they are posted on pintrest and that seems to be the only on I do have I do not use any of the other ones.

  • Catherine December 13, 2015, 1:14 pm

    Hi Denise! Sorry if that was confusing! I was recommending places that you can upload your photo to so that you can get a link to add…Pinterest is fine! :)

  • Chris Boldovici December 13, 2015, 7:38 pm

    So where will our friends go to vote on the cards?
    Thanks this is such fun. I am so enjoying my Stamp of Approval kit……..
    Chris B

  • Teresa Cherka December 17, 2015, 6:21 pm

    Thanks for the opportunity to win the next box of goodness. Can’t wait to see what is coming.

  • Sue Richard December 18, 2015, 7:15 pm

    I love all of the lovely cards! I love seeing what everybody does with their collection. I made my own cards this year, but I had to do them without the Holiday SOA! Boo hoo!

  • Shona Austin December 18, 2015, 9:56 pm

    Such a wide variety from the same stamp kit.

  • Virginia December 19, 2015, 8:15 pm

    Hi! I just loved my SOA Christmas Magic box.
    Thanks so much!

  • Salima Chaudhry December 20, 2015, 3:53 am

    How will we be able to ask our friends to vote? Also if our friends do not have twitter is there another way for them to vote?

  • Elizabeth December 20, 2015, 10:24 am

    I would love to win a Stamp of Aproval Card kit. Loving mine from summer.

  • Catherine December 20, 2015, 12:20 pm

    Hi Salima! Send your friends to this blog post and tell them to click on the heart for your card. Let them know what number you are and to click the heart. Easy peasy :)

  • Darlene Renshaw December 20, 2015, 2:29 pm

    It was hard to pick just three. I love all of them. Great job everyone and Merry Christmas:)

  • Jeanne Campagna December 20, 2015, 2:58 pm

    I am so amazed at the talent that went into the cards. Great job. I am so sorry that I didn’t make cards using the SOA collection. I was on a mission to finish my fourth child’s scrapbook to present to her when we visited. Merry Christmas.

  • Cherrilynn Bisbano December 20, 2015, 3:41 pm

    I vote for #18

  • Linda Sodano December 20, 2015, 8:04 pm

    How do you place your votes?

  • Llinda Sodano December 20, 2015, 8:11 pm

    I don’t see any hearts to click on.

  • DonnaBarthelt December 20, 2015, 8:23 pm

    The are no hearts next to the entries. Is there a different link?
    Can you vote without the hearts?

  • Salima Chaudhry December 20, 2015, 9:34 pm

    I do not see any hearts, and neither can my friends.. Did I post the wrong link?

  • Sue Politano December 20, 2015, 10:46 pm

    There are so many cute cards made here. My favorite is #18. This collection of stamps and your video is really impressive

  • Nancy R December 20, 2015, 10:52 pm

    So many beautiful cards here. It was hard to pick only three to vote for. Well done everyone!

  • Deana Johansen December 21, 2015, 6:36 pm

    #26, the pink snowflake wreath! I am liking those pretty flakes ^_^

  • Deana Johansen December 21, 2015, 6:39 pm

    Oops! saw that I could vote for 3 of these babies. 26, 66, and 101. Fun to vote on such happy cards ^_^

  • Marcia Hill December 21, 2015, 9:16 pm

    Hi Catherine…I had linked up my card (#93) for the contest and had my friends and family voting for me earlier today through the link I put on my FB account, but now my husband was just trying to vote, and none of the hearts to click on come up on anyone’s thumbnail pic and there’s a red heart on mine. Have I done something wrong? I know just enough about computers to be dangerous, so I’m thinking I goofed somewhere. If you have any suggestions on what I might be doing wrong I’d really appreciate it. Thanks so much!
    P.S. I’ve LOVED the Holiday SOA…I am reaching for those stamps and dies ALL the time!! Thank you, thank you for such an amazing box of goodies!! :0)

  • Chris Boldovici December 23, 2015, 9:55 am

    Chris B

  • Chris Boldovici December 23, 2015, 10:06 am
