    Already commented once but had a lightbulb moment. I will make 600 cards for Hospice this year and my biggest expense is adhesive. I’m so loving that all these cards are single layer and so very easy to stamp that I can’t even tell you how happy that makes me. Setting my alarm clock for 8:00 am so I get that StampNation link an hour early.

  • Jane Sprando November 15, 2016, 10:37 am

    Sometimes less is more, and that is the case with these graphic, one-layer cards. I love all the elements you’ve included with the Foundations stamp sets. I particularly like the big bold circle sentiments. I’m looking forward to trying out the new inks, too. The “coverage-ability” looks impressive.

  • Joyce Spear November 15, 2016, 5:39 pm

    Catherine, I absolutely can’t WAIT to get your inks into my grubby little hands!! I plan to start using them for some CAS Christmas cards, but am looking forward to seeing for myself how well they watercolor and blend as well. So, if I’ve been paying attention, this first “Party” collection will have 12 ink colors; and then you’ll be gradually releasing additional themed color collections. I’m wondering, how many ink colors will there be altogether? 48? More? Less? I’m thinking ahead and trying to plan for inkpad storage. Yeah, I’m enthused enough to already know I’ll end up buying ALL your colors!!

  • Diane B November 15, 2016, 5:41 pm

    I just watched the other video before this one…you made me tear up, too. It took you under 2 minutes to make this card. This kit is so handy. I’m loving the circle stamp set.

    I am truly amazed at how the stamps, the block, the 5 stamp pads and the scored cards can be all that one needs to make adorable and cute cards. Love this.

  • Barbara S November 15, 2016, 10:46 pm

    Great single layer card – definitely give a lot of impact!

  • Karen.o November 15, 2016, 11:01 pm

    What a fantastic idea. I love the look of the stamp pads the colours are really vibrant. The addition of the bracelet would be the icing on the cake for sure.

  • Jean Maxwell November 15, 2016, 11:35 pm

  • FeM November 16, 2016, 12:01 am

    This is genius.

    I really can’t wait for this box!!

  • Jane G. November 16, 2016, 12:20 am

    I love how simple the cards are and how quickly they can be made. I can’t wait to try the new inks. Thanks Catherine for all you do. I feel like I know you personally.

  • CraftyLawyer November 16, 2016, 12:35 am

    So I was stamping tonight and just having the hardest time getting a nice even stamp without it being patchy and splotchy. I cannot wait for your inks. I’m so. freaking. excited. Anyway, super cute and fast card!

  • Cynthia Johnson November 16, 2016, 12:53 am

    This was a great idea Catherine! I can’t wait until I get mine. All the designers have done an awesome job showing the inks and stamp at its best!

  • Carol Hardie November 16, 2016, 1:26 am

    What quick and awesome one layer cards. We all love to add layers and lots of bling, but these one layer cards you created prove that they can be just as fabulous. Thank you for sharing.

  • karenladd November 16, 2016, 1:30 am

    I would be eager to use the stamps in different combinations to make my own patterned backgrounds and to make my own version of plaid with those borders. Also happy to hear that the black ink is permanent and can be used with coloring techniques! Thanks for all the inspiration.

  • Dawn Kloman November 16, 2016, 1:33 am

    I’m looking forward to this box. You give so much inspiration in your cards and make it look quick and easy. 1 layer cards are a challenge for me so I can’t wait.

  • Marilyn Falcone November 16, 2016, 2:38 am

    I love this one layer card. Looking forward to this box of goodies (especially the inks!)

  • Michele Argument November 16, 2016, 5:17 am

    Wow, how good is this stamp set. So versatile. The cards are simple yet sophisticated. I will definitely be buying myself one for Christmas and probably one for my mum as she has just started the art of stamping and this would be a great starter set for her.
    Thank you for the inspiration and the great products.


  • lilette Autrey November 16, 2016, 5:21 am

    You card is so simple but really beautiful, and the ink is so deviné and clear. I wish I could afford this kit, but it is really far from my financial reach.. I have much pleasure to follow you in everything you presents.

  • anna d November 16, 2016, 5:50 am

    What a lovely approach to card-making. It can be quite overwhelming at times trying to coordinate everything. You’ve done it for us!

  • Marianne November 16, 2016, 6:39 am

    Such a fun hop. Too bad I couldn’t leave a comment on Melissa’s blog since commenting had temporarily been disabled to avoid spam. I couldn’t leave a comment on Lisa’s blog either (as always), since you need a Google+ profile to do so.

  • Leanne S November 16, 2016, 7:28 am

    I’ve been drooling over this since the time you announced its arrival. Planned to hop, but an unexpected situation kept me from hopping earlier. I hope I’m not late.

  • Theresa November 16, 2016, 7:30 am

    I love how versatile these stamp sets are and we’ll they will play with all the SOA boxes so far. I’m so excited to get my hands on the inks. 2017 can’t get here soon enough to get the other colors!

  • BeckyR November 16, 2016, 8:01 am

    What a quick and simple card. It’s nice to be reminded that not all cards have to take an hour to make!
