The Perfect Reason Stamp of Approval Blog Hop Day 2

Share This!

PerfectReason_ComingSoon The Perfect Reason Stamp of Approval blog hop day #2 is here!

WOW!  Did you SEE the projects from yesterday?  I know I’m inspired….and now I can’t wait for you to see today’s Dream Team projects…but first, I have one to share.

The Perfect Reason Stamp of Approval 5.2 In THIS VIDEO, I stamped and cut out a bunch of flowers from the Perfect Reason Stamp Set and they sat on my desk begging to be put on a card!

I worked on arranging them in a fun cluster, added a greeting from the You Did It! Stamp Set and did a bit of sponging with the Mod Squared Stencil for the background.

I grabbed the little polka dot stamp and added a few black dots around the cluster and it’s done!

INK COLORS:  Party Dress, Tiara, Tutti Frutti, Lime Rickey, Grass Skirt, Orange Twist, Aquatini and Midnight. The Perfect Reason Stamp of Approval 5.1 If you missed the rest of the products in this collection, you can see:


The full step-by-step instructions for this card (and about 40 others!) will be in the FREE Project Guide download you get when you purchase this collection.

WHAT IS the Stamp of Approval The Perfect Reason Collection?

The video here says it best...but in a nut shell, we design a collection of products that come in one fabulous box and provide a free Project Guide download with step-by-step instructions for dozens of hand made cards using the collection!

Our very first collection premiered August 6, 2015 and was such a hit that we sold out in 1 hour and 1 minute.  Then we oversold, flipped out (just a bit…lol), scrambled, figured it out and we were all happy in the end. We’ve grown a lot and we’ve learned a lot and it’s been an amazing ride!

Each quarter, people from around the globe tell me what a difference Stamp of Approval makes for them.  To some it might just be a box of stamps.  But to others, it’s a creative outlet.  It’s a way to gather with friends and bond.  It’s the perfect way to send messages of love to friends and family.

To this community, it also bring us together.  SOA fans are like kids on Christmas morning (me included!!!) and as an adult, it’s not often that we get to feel like that!  And how much fun is it to share in that TOGETHER?

Just look at these happy ladies!!!

soa-collage Thank you ladies, for sharing in this amazing paper crafting ride with me…you all make it SO MUCH FUN!

  • Marianne B in AZ February 8, 2017, 7:32 pm

    A good floral stamp set can make make cards for so many occasions. So, it is always a great set to have on hand. I wanted to say that I can’t agree more about not needing a reason to send someone a card. Everyone loves to know they are being thought about, and nothing says that like a handmade card.

  • Kelley February 8, 2017, 10:29 pm

    Would loved to have seen more of that stenciled background.

  • Debbie Nutt February 8, 2017, 11:45 pm

    So fresh and colourful! Thanks for sharing and the chance to win.

  • Jan B February 9, 2017, 12:01 am

    I just love the stencil.

  • Cheryl Jones February 9, 2017, 12:46 am

    I love this collection! So excited. The cards are all terrific.

  • Deepa Lakshman February 9, 2017, 7:52 am

    I wish I could have bought all the ink colors that you have. I love the inspiration from all the lovely dream team members.

  • Cristina February 9, 2017, 10:36 am
