Share This!

NaturallyInspired_BlogHop Today is our first day of blog hops!  WOOHOOO!

Buckle up, because we invited some pretty incredible designers to work with our Naturally Inspired Stamp of Approval Collection- just WAIT until you see all their amazing creations!  Well, I haven't seen them all yet, but what I have seen has completely knocked my socks off.  Just incredible!

We asked each designer to pick her favorite card (some of them picked more than one!) and submit it with the supply list and instructions for making the card.

We compiled those favorite cards into an amazing Project Guide download for those of you that purchase the collection – you get it FREE with your box!  Pretty awesome, right?

So not only do you get a box FULL of goodness…and not just any ole goodness…brand NEW goodness that was designed to compliment each other.  It's the perfect mix of sentiments, graphics, main images, backgrounds, and accoutrements.

You know what all this means?

No more sitting down to craft and being stumped!  You're going to have tons of ideas and put these products to use and before you know it, your creative juices will be flowing and you'll be one happy stamper.

Sounds good?

WAIT LIST members will receive their link to purchase the collection on Wednesday, June 7 at 9 am eastern.

If you are a StampNation Member, we invite to celebrate with us on Tuesday evening at 10 pm eastern.  We'll share some fun and open ordering early for you guys.

Not a member?  There's still time to join…click here for more deets.

Thursday, June 8- if the collection isn't sold out yet, general ordering will open.

On to the stamping!  Let's check out this Masculine card made with the Medallion Mix-Up,  Simply the Best stamp sets and the Wanderlust Embossing Powder.

Masculine Card with Stamp of Approval One thing I love about this card is how it shows off our inks!  I love that you have about 5 seconds before the ink dries to pour on Embossing Powder or Glitter and emboss it.  This means you basically have an embossing ink for every color we have in our line.  Pretty awesome, eh?

This same property also makes ink blending a dream…the ink doesn't dry quickly, so you have time to blend.

New to our inks?  Click here to learn more about why they are so awesome! ;)

Naturally Inspired Stamp of Approval Blog Hop Day 1: Masculine Card (sort of!)


In case you missed our reveal days, check out these videos and projects made with this collection:

 

Masculine Card with Stamp of Approval 2

The theme of our collection is NATURALLY INSPIRED, so we asked the Design Team to share how they are naturally inspired.  I am naturally inspired by many things and I'll be sharing them over the next few days.

First is my girls…they inspire and teach me every single day.

Anna Europe This is my oldest daughter, Anna.  When she started high school, she was taking Spanish and fell in love with the language.  Then she found out there was a trip to Europe.  I've never seen her get so excited!  She turned to me and said, “I'm going to Paris!”

The thing that inspires me about Anna is that if she really wants something, nothing stops her.

When I was in high school, there was a trip to Spain…a few of my friends were going, so my mother said I could go, but if my friends backed out, she said I was still going.  Well, my friends backed out and so did I.  EEECK!

Anna went on this trip, basically alone.  She went with a large group of people and a teacher she felt comfortable with, but none of the kids on the trip were friends of hers.  That did not stop her!  She wanted to go to Europe!

This summer, she is going on another trip.  She applied for a summer program at Harvard and got accepted, so she will be there for two weeks in July.

She inspires me to go for what I want because I want it.  Not for any other reason.  I love that about her!

    What a perfect masculine card! I’m loving the circle & triangle elements and their placement, Catherine…way cool!

  • Susan White June 4, 2017, 9:11 am

    I love this collection and how you made such a great masculine card out of a medallion.

  • Jean Mervine June 4, 2017, 9:19 am

    What a great masculine card! Love the multiple ink colors in the medallions and the geometric elements.

  • Karen Kreider June 4, 2017, 9:21 am

    Love this masculine card! Can’t wait to get this SOA box!!

  • Avra Williams June 4, 2017, 9:26 am

    I love this card! And this collection!

  • Irene Garcia June 4, 2017, 9:39 am

    I love watching your videos Catherine! Your cards are always elegant and beautiful, yet simple to do! Your daughter is gorgeous! Love that picture! I’ve been to Italy and want to go back to Europe! I sure hope my daughter has that attitude when she is older! So, I guess I can also say that my one and only, my 9-year-old daughter is one of my inspirations as well. I love making crafty things for her and her friends and classmates! As a matter of fact, I am going in to her classroom next week to share my love of card making with the class and we’ll all be making a quick “wallet” card for Father’s Day!
    I can’t wait to get this new SOA!!!! Thank you!

  • Sidney June 4, 2017, 9:40 am

    I was here at nine sharp. Couldn’t figure out how to comment, but I am here now! I love this card. I always love your joyous explanations and I absolutely loved this blog hop. Thanks Catherine!

  • Robi K June 4, 2017, 9:51 am

  • CraftyLawyer June 4, 2017, 9:57 am

    I’m so excited about that embossing powder! it looks gorgeous. Also the new ink pad! I’m never buying any ink pads other than yours (and perhaps distress oxide)!

  • Shari Baumler June 4, 2017, 9:59 am

    I love this collection and the card you just made. I can’t wait to CASE it. I have an adventurous daughter like your Anna. Every summer she comes up with something interesting and educational to keep herself busy.

  • Joanne Guarino June 4, 2017, 10:08 am

    Great card, Catherine! That is a perfect masculine card.

  • Sharon O June 4, 2017, 10:10 am

  • Robin June 4, 2017, 10:10 am

    Um, HELLO! I keep thinking that each box is the best every and you won’t be able to top it, and then BAM…there y’all go and do it again!! Seriously loving this collection and can’t wait to get it in my greedy little hands. Great job!

  • Priscilla Steele June 4, 2017, 10:30 am

    Masculine or not, I’m loving the color combo. “Best” font ever!!!

  • Sharon Gullikson June 4, 2017, 10:30 am

    I have never done one of your blog hops before. In fact, I just learned about your crafty company recently, so I’m excited to see samples of what can be done with your products!!! The colors look great!

  • Sharon Gullikson June 4, 2017, 10:33 am

    I FORGOT TO SAY HOW I”M NATURALLY INSPIRED–and there wasn’t an edit button….I am inspired by everything around me. I walk in my neighborhood 5 days per week, so I see nature all the time. I am also inspired by blogs, magazines, etc.

  • Becky June 4, 2017, 10:34 am

    Fantastic card. Everything goes together perfectly. Thanks for including any smudges in your videos and how you “fix” them because I always seem to leave some marks on my cards. Another fantastic SOA box Catherine!

  • Ingrid June 4, 2017, 10:40 am

    What a great masculine card! Such a great stamp set. Anna inspires me too. Love that photo of her! :)

  • Diane Loughrey June 4, 2017, 10:40 am

    Can’t wait until Wednesday. Feeling as if Stampnaion may be in my near future. I sure hope CP products will be in my LSS soon, I am checking in with her this week. This set would be perfect for the troops cards I send monthly.

  • Julie Curwen June 4, 2017, 10:41 am

    I love this card… I’m partial to rainbows though!!

  • Caroline B June 4, 2017, 10:43 am

    Hello there,
    This blog-hop is off to a great start! I love all the geometrics in the spiro-doilies stamp set.
    One thing that inspires me is the courage of the clients I work with. They are people who stutter; some come to treatment with fears and doubts about their abilities as communicators, based on years of struggle and negative experiences. But once they trust the therapy and start opening up, look out! They won’t stop talking, sharing all the thoughts they bottled up before, and planning ways to “pay it forward.” Inspiring, indeed!

  • Elise Smith June 4, 2017, 10:53 am

    Yay! I love this collection! Usually my favorite stamps and colors are inspired by nature… flowers, birds, blues and greens. Thanks for the chance to win :-D

  • Craft confectionery June 4, 2017, 10:54 am

    Hi, I am naturally inspired by things around me and my instragram feed also helps. I love your videos and love this card. Thanks for the inspiration and a chance to win.

  • Cindy June 4, 2017, 10:58 am

    Love this card! Catherine I have loved your videos since I watched you on Craftsy. I love that you’re so perky! And I love that if you make a mistake, you just find a way to fix it! No biggie. If I had to choose how I am inspired it’s by animals. I love animals. I have the biggest heart and the most love when it comes to animals. ❤️ I have kitties and a dog and they are my world.

  • Tiffany Born June 4, 2017, 10:59 am

    Thank you

  • Megan June 4, 2017, 11:02 am

    I just love this collection, Catherine. Those 2 little triangle stamps finish it off perfectly!

  • Megan June 4, 2017, 11:04 am

    I just noticed you are giving away the last collection and not the new one this time. Is that right?

  • Catherine June 4, 2017, 11:09 am

    GOOD EYE! That was a typo. We are giving away THIS collection! Thank you for noticing!

  • Jane M June 4, 2017, 11:20 am

    This collection looks like it is the BEST! I love your masculine card! Thanks for the video!

  • Sherry June 4, 2017, 11:24 am

    Loved your card! I liked the colors of the medallions… they almost look Southwestern! Thank you for the video! I love to see the creative process! Thank you for these wonderful collections!

  • Ruth Ann Smith June 4, 2017, 11:31 am

    Catherine, You inspire me! Creativity flows from you and that just inspires me when I get in a rut. Love this card and will definitely try this design. Love all your ink colors!

  • Clare June 4, 2017, 11:31 am

    Love the card Catherine. The medallion stamp set seems awesome and definitely a staple. I live in the U.K. near the river and running along the river during the different seasons is definitely something that inspires and calms me.

  • Margaret Peppers June 4, 2017, 11:41 am

    Love the card.

  • Jean Purpura June 4, 2017, 11:41 am

    Simple, and fresh…..love it!

  • Joy moody June 4, 2017, 11:41 am

    You did it again, WOW homerun! Love the box can’t wait to get mine!

  • Kathy Doyle June 4, 2017, 11:51 am

    I love the Medallions Mix-ups Set! So many possibilities with just this one stamp set! I just recently used your inks with clear embossing powder on a graduation card I just finished and they work great together! I have all your ink colors and they have become my “go-to” inks!

  • Donna Hawkins June 4, 2017, 11:51 am

    I love this card and this collection! My mind is just racing with the possibilities just waiting to be created with this collection. I see a very creative summer in my future thanks to you and your wonderful team. Thank you!!!!

  • Theresa June 4, 2017, 11:59 am

    Such an AWESOME card. I am so excited about the medallion set. I have been searching for something like that for a while.
    I am naturally inspired by the ocean. The smell of the salt air, the sound of the waves, the expanses of blue, the wildlife all around me, it just gets my creative juices flowing. I am thankful that i go on 2 trips to the water each year with my crafty girlfriends. It just refreshes the creative part of my soul. Thank you for sharing your story and the creative part of yourself. It truly inspires me. Hugs!

  • SusanME June 4, 2017, 11:59 am

    This release is amazing! And I love your card, too – even with sparkle, I think it’s great for anyone – including men! Thanks for sharing!

  • Barbara Brennan June 4, 2017, 12:10 pm

    I’m naturally inspired by nature and my surroundings. You can find inspiration in almost anything….like a beautiful pattern on a carpet in a elevator!

  • Tammy Nyenhuis June 4, 2017, 12:11 pm

    Love the card, hope your dad does too. I am Naturally Inspired by my kids, friends and nature.

  • Donna Cervantez June 4, 2017, 12:13 pm

    I am loving what I see of this collection. I am inspired by the amazing people I run across here and in blogland.

  • Judy June 4, 2017, 12:29 pm

    I struggle with masculine cards and this is great. I can’t wait to have this box in my craft room. I made sure to have no plans for next weekend, lol.

  • Erin M June 4, 2017, 12:32 pm

    I think this is one of my favorite collections so far! Can’t wait to order.

  • Judy June 4, 2017, 12:36 pm

    I forgot to write what inspires me. My nephews, granddaughters and this tiny little quaint town I live in. It is the birthplace of the Navy, surrounded by the ocean (I am a block away and literally no part of town is far from a beach or a bench overlooking the ocean or a park). It has so many historical places to see (Spirit of 76 painting is here) that I truly live in a tourist destination. I think it is most beautiful in the winter.

  • Ellen June 4, 2017, 12:40 pm

    Great masculine card. This SOA release looks awesome and is making my heart happy.

  • Bronwen Maxwell June 4, 2017, 12:44 pm

    So inspiring. Love the graduated ink colors, and such versatile stamps. Great layout ideas! Sometimes we have all the tools and materials but just need a little spark to get us creating! Thank you,

  • Connie Brooks June 4, 2017, 12:47 pm

    I struggle with masculine cards so the one you made for your Dad helps me a lot. I love watching you create, you make it look so easy. But, then I realized as you say…the collections are designed to go together. I’m inspired by florals. The colors, the shapes and the scents. Have them in every room some real and most are imitation but, the designs are beautiful to me.

  • Mary Laffin June 4, 2017, 1:02 pm

    I’m inspired by many things–but so much so by the designers and members of Stamp Nation, their talents and willingness to share. I have learned so much since being a member and can’t wait to get this next box to add to my collection (yes, I have them all and had introduced them to friends who didn’t know about Stamp Nation)

  • Jan Minforton June 4, 2017, 1:03 pm

    You made that card look so quick and easy!! So excited to get my hands on this new collection. I get inspiration from my family and friends.

  • Michelle King June 4, 2017, 1:05 pm

    I am so excited about this box! I love that it is naturally inspired! So perfect :)

  • Tammy Beichner June 4, 2017, 1:09 pm

    Nice ideas

  • Sue McRae June 4, 2017, 1:09 pm

    Looks like a lot of fab goodies inside this kit! I’m inspired by nature and the beautiful colors of flowers and foliage!

  • Kathy Doyle June 4, 2017, 1:12 pm

    Just finished today’s blog hop and am totally blown away by all the ideas and awesome projects the DT has come up with! Can’t wait to see the next two days of blog hops and the release of the next SOA box!

  • Peggy Pride June 4, 2017, 1:13 pm

    A great set of stamps! Can’t wait.

  • Vicki Smith June 4, 2017, 1:15 pm

    I usually like my days and weeks to go by slowly so I can enjoy the warm summer months, but I can hardly wait to order the BEST SOA collection so far!!! Your card is awesome along with your inks. I am inspired by nature and, of course, by Stamp Nation and all the diversity of the members submissions. Would be blessed to WIN this new incredible collection. Thank you all for contributing your talent!

  • Tasha Dawson June 4, 2017, 1:16 pm

    I am so excited for this box!!!

  • Kirsty Slaven June 4, 2017, 1:23 pm

    Just love all the designs you come up with, inspirational and still learning all the tricks. I currently only own distress ink but hopefully this time next week I will have more of an ink collection as will be visiting USA – getting stuff in UK is a mare especially with shipping charges and tax implications when it arrives in to UK. Keep up the fab work xx

  • Susan Powell June 4, 2017, 1:26 pm

    LOVE this card!!! The colors, the design, that banner, those little arrows, those circle doily things, the glitter (breathe) I absolutely LOVE it all!!!

  • Marilyn in Michigan June 4, 2017, 1:26 pm

    I’m inspired by things in nature and beautiful projects posted online.

  • Susan Powell June 4, 2017, 1:32 pm

    I was admiring the card so much that I forgot to say what inspires me – I’m inspired by the kindness, encouragement and support that I’ve experienced in the stamping community and color combos – they tend to get my creative juices flowing. And Catherine, you inspire me – when you stamp and you make a ‘mistake’ – you don’t let it stop you, you just relax, giggle a bit and figure out a way to make it work and I love that!! You had a business vision, you’ve worked hard and you’ve seen it come to life. It’s been fun to watch your success happen. Congrats!

  • Donna Neal June 4, 2017, 1:40 pm

    Love your designs & how they evoke so many positive emotions in me when I see how they were created and also when I get to behold the finished work of art. :) The creativity I see in you and in others inspire me to be more creative myself. Looking forward to stamping with this new collection!

  • Leanne in Cali June 4, 2017, 1:42 pm

    Love your video and your card! I can’t wait to get this collection. I’m inspired by many card makers that are on your team as well as others I follow. I love to see what everyone makes and I get so excited to see everyone’s beautiful cards!!

  • Linda Kaucher June 4, 2017, 1:43 pm

    I am inspired every day by my loving husband, Bob, who gets up and goes to school. He is a High School Math teacher and no matter how he is feeling, he goes to teach his students. Because of him, I am inspired to do my best to help others and that includes creating cards to make them feel special and appreciated. I am inspired by all the crafters I see on Crafty Blogs and am amazed at all the beautiful projects I see. I am able to learn so much from everything I see and make my own “masterpieces”! Thank you for this opportunity!

  • Jennifer Baker Palmer June 4, 2017, 1:52 pm

    I am inspired by the colors of nature! Especially this time of year! Gorgeous pinks, purples and yellows!

  • Marjorie King June 4, 2017, 2:01 pm

    Love the card. Looks like my style not to hard and seems quicker then some. Thanks for all the hard work you putting into the site and stuff.

  • Marilyn Martin June 4, 2017, 2:04 pm

    Great card! I love the colors you’ve used. CP inks stamp beautifully!

  • Kathy Serrahn June 4, 2017, 2:34 pm

    Awesome card
    Love your inks

  • Lori Bergschneider June 4, 2017, 2:56 pm

    I am loving that BEST……cannot wait for this box…I have my own Catherine Pooler section in my stash area…..and leave room for the next edition!

  • sylvia June 4, 2017, 2:59 pm

    Love, love that card. Just changing the colors and maybe a few sequins and it could be feminine.

  • Julie Mari June 4, 2017, 3:14 pm

    I am inspired by many things. I love getting ideas from Stamp Nation, but I also look to nature. I make a lot of butterfly inspired cards.

  • Patti Blankenship June 4, 2017, 3:19 pm

    Best blog hop ever. I love all the inks (of course I have them) and how all the colors go together. Everyone did a marvelous job on the cards, and I’m excited to receive my box of goodies and try them all. Thank you for being so much fun and inspiring us all.

  • Laurie June 4, 2017, 3:21 pm

    This is a great card, these colours look great together and it is nice to see a more masculine looking card.
    I love seeing all the ideas you have come up with and how all the kit elements work together. And I absolutely love the special glitter and the feather stamp set in this kit!

  • Ashlyn June 4, 2017, 3:25 pm

    I’m inspired by travel. I love to see new places and my heart is happy near the ocean. Thanks for sharing a masculine card idea!

  • Glenda Lee Nutting June 4, 2017, 3:30 pm

    I am naturally inspired by the love and joy of my 3 year old granddaughter. Also these beautiful ink colors!

  • Jan Monforton June 4, 2017, 3:33 pm

    I’ll try this again….helps if I spell my last name right!! I wasn’t able to correct it so I’ll re-post. I think this has to be the best SOA box so far….love the stamps, dies and cannot wait to see the new ink colour. Anxious to use the new WOW wanderlust embossing powder. My inspiration for my cards is my family & friends.

  • Melissa Miller June 4, 2017, 3:34 pm

    AWESOME card, Catherine! Wow, Anna is amazing. I would totally have been like you and backed out of the trip if none of my friends were going. Good for her for going anyway!

  • Michele June 4, 2017, 3:36 pm

    I am inspired by vibrant colors; I Love vibrant colors…Love to see masculine cards I struggle on those.

  • Melanie Culbertson June 4, 2017, 3:40 pm

    Love this.

  • Lisa K June 4, 2017, 3:45 pm

    What inspires me is the beauty around me. When I go for a walk and see flowers, I get inspired to stamp flowers. Sometimes it is children playing as I love the hear their laughter. A great stamp collections inspires me and makes me want to try many new ideas.

  • D.Ann C June 4, 2017, 3:45 pm

    I like the flow of this lovely card! I am inspired by going to botanical gardens and taking pictures of flowers… especially close ups to see what the eye misses – flowers within flowers and more!

  • Lynnea Hollendonner June 4, 2017, 3:53 pm

    I’m in love with this collection and I love that you were inspired by natural things!

  • Tristan June 4, 2017, 4:00 pm

    I’m naturally inspired by how my daughter looks at things. She’s always positive and thinks the best of everyone. She is generous and caring. She inspires me everyday to be a better person/mother.

  • Cindy June 4, 2017, 4:06 pm

    I am so excited to get my hands on this box. The surprise color really has my heart beating and mind saying hurry June 7th. The products are so awesome. Yeah!

  • Melinda Lowry June 4, 2017, 4:20 pm

    I can’t wait to start playing with this Stamp of Approval. What a great collection this time!

  • Lesley kaiser June 4, 2017, 4:21 pm

    I love the card for a man or boy. I try to get and do different male cards. So they are different so they don’t get the same all the time. I love it.

  • Theresa June 4, 2017, 4:26 pm

    This just may be the best SOA yet.
    Can’t wait to get it.

  • Marianne June 4, 2017, 4:43 pm

    Fabulous card and fabulous collection! Each time I am bracing myself to not get too excited and rush to buy the new SOA collection, but as always you guys are inspiring me with your creations and creativity. In my crafting, I’m also inspired by challenges, because they motivate me to venture out of my comfort zone and embrace new techniques and styles.

  • Lori Sauers June 4, 2017, 4:48 pm

    Hi Catherine, I have to say this is my first time I have done the Blog Hop. Wow, there is a lot of talent in this Blog Hop. You make card making so simple and soooo much fun.. I really don’t have a favorite card, I like them all and would love to make them all. Thank you again for making card making so much fun. I tell me card making friends that they need to check out Stamp Nation and check out the dream team. They will get inspired by you all.

  • Kathi Ormsby June 4, 2017, 5:08 pm

    I’m truly inspired to get into stamping. I love making cards. The medillion mix-up is such a cool stamp. I love your ink colors too!

  • Wendy Hughes June 4, 2017, 5:10 pm

    Love it! Always hard to think of a nice male card.

  • Beka L June 4, 2017, 5:13 pm

    This is my first time with SOA and I’m so excited to get my box!

  • Marilyn Cotter June 4, 2017, 5:16 pm

    Sometimes my inspiration comes while I’m playing golf … can’t blame a bad golf shot on inspiration!!

    I love the medallion stamps. So many possibilities! I want to be creative in my stamping and I think this set really allows for being original and creative.

  • Mary Nelson June 4, 2017, 5:26 pm

    Wonderful birthday card for your dad, he will love it! I’m absolutely inspired by you and all the other amazing social media artists out there! Thanks for sharing you work!

  • Carol Owen June 4, 2017, 5:40 pm

    Your dad is going to love his birthday card from his little girl

  • Carol Horton June 4, 2017, 5:41 pm

    I LOVE this SOA kit. I’m sure your dad loved his card, too. It is really neat.

    I am inspired by the colors of nature. I love the woodlands and the natural blues, greens, and browns.

  • Colleen Balija June 4, 2017, 5:50 pm

    I think that’s a great masculine card for your Dad, Catherine! This SOA set is one of your nicest yet!

  • Vickie Jo Buehler June 4, 2017, 5:53 pm

    Love your card, especially how you fix the smear. Going to love playing with this SOA box! Can not wait!!

  • Joyce Spear June 4, 2017, 6:03 pm

    I’m what you might call over-inspired. I find inspiration everywhere and constantly have so many ideas running through my head at a single time that it’s hard for me to grab just one idea and put it to paper. Of course StampNation’s design team and members are amazing inspiration for me, as well as the world around me. I’d have to say that nature is my favorite source for inspiration, though.

  • Heidi varden June 4, 2017, 6:08 pm

    Beautiful cards

  • Carol June 4, 2017, 6:17 pm

    Catherine, you used my favorite color combination on this card. I can’t wait to use these medallions!

  • Cindy Roman Daversa June 4, 2017, 6:21 pm

    I reallllly need to have this collection ASAP! Pretty please!!!

  • Beth Swisher June 4, 2017, 6:26 pm

    I am inspired by my daughter. When she was two weeks short of four years old she saw her baby sister born at home. She decided she wanted to be a doctor. Fast forward decades later. She became a doctor. On evening in late May, five years ago she saved her dad. He had a cardiac arrest and had no heart beat for twenty minutes while she performed CPR on the street pavement. On the way to the hospital in the ambulance he finally had a heart beat. He made a full recovery. The hospital staff called him “miracle man”. Later my daughter told me most of those episodes end in death or brain deficiency. I call Her my angel.

  • Gail Hislop June 4, 2017, 6:26 pm

    I am looking forward to seeing this SOA release. Thanks Catherine for another great card, video and all your inspiration. You’re the BEST.

  • Sharon Field June 4, 2017, 6:33 pm

    Your card is lovely……….and your new collections looks wonderful. Wish that it fit in my budget, but since it doesn’t I will hope that I am one of the winners! Now off to the rest of the hop.

  • Janice Peterson June 4, 2017, 6:40 pm

    I am so excited and can’t wait to order the Stamo of Approval collection. This will be my first but not my last. I can’t wait to be creative and make all kind of cards for my favorite friends. Looking forward to your coming to Greensboro (Betty’s) on the 17th.

  • Catherine June 4, 2017, 6:41 pm

    This is an incredible story! WOW! Thank you for sharing it! Blessings!

  • Pamela Stadler June 4, 2017, 6:50 pm

    I’m inspired to /be the best I can be and to take care of me! Now that my kids are grown, I’m going to catch up : ) Love this kit. It’s really beautiful.

  • Sharon Field June 4, 2017, 7:38 pm

    Tried to leave a comment on Melissa’s blog but it says comments have been disabled to prevent spam……….Melissa, I love the shaker card and as to what inspires me……..the beautiful colors of flowers and birds in nature. You did a wonderful job with your projects.

  • Trina Chaska June 4, 2017, 7:39 pm

    Nice card. Love the colors.

  • Jina Winston June 4, 2017, 7:41 pm

    Love the new collection. What is inspires me is Spring and Summer seasons. The colors of nature fresh and exciting.

  • Danielle June 4, 2017, 7:53 pm

    I am naturally inspired by everything around me, but mostly fabric colors and patterns.

  • Teresa Rawnick June 4, 2017, 7:54 pm

    I draw my creative spark or my natural inspiration from my mother & my grand-mother. They both lived through the great depression on a farm and they had to be very creative just to live from day to day. They made everything. They used everything. My grandmother would see something in a store window & count the stitches & go home and make it herself. If it was sewn she would measure it with her hands and again go home and make it herself. Most of my mother’s clothes were made from flour sacks. I love to hear my mother’s stories about it all. (Love this SOA & your card).

  • Nikki Brandt June 4, 2017, 7:58 pm

    So excited to see the blog hop for your fun stamps and inks!!!

  • Nancy June 4, 2017, 8:05 pm

    What a great card, would be perfect for my Dad too!

    Colors in nature inspire me the most.

  • Shirley M June 4, 2017, 8:11 pm

    love this card, cards for men are so challenging but this is great!

  • Cynthia June 4, 2017, 8:12 pm

    Love this “male” card – So much inspiration with the new SOA

  • Ann Celino June 4, 2017, 8:20 pm

    Love how you covered up that boo-boo. You are so resourceful! I’m really liking those medallions.

  • Jodie Ramdas June 4, 2017, 8:20 pm

    I love this SOA collection Catherine! Each collection just keeps getting better and better. You do such an amazing job, thankyou!

    I am “naturally inspired” by my 7 month old son. I think he is my biggest inspiration in life so far. He inspires me to keep doing life and make the most out of everyday, including fitting in some “me time” to craft in the evenings.

  • Janet Ingraham June 4, 2017, 8:22 pm

    Nature has so many awesome colors and of course they all go together beautifully

  • Jo Ann Lovell June 4, 2017, 8:23 pm

  • Vivian June 4, 2017, 9:45 pm

    The medallions set is gorgeous! I can’t wait!

  • Melissa Friedrich June 4, 2017, 9:54 pm

    Love your masculine (gender neutral?) birthday card, love the glitter embossing on it. Everyone needs a little glitter right!? I am naturally inspired when I go hiking: I’m lucky enough to live around the Blue Ridge mountains and the scenic views just never get old.

  • Denise June 4, 2017, 10:02 pm

    Love that it’s a great guy card!

  • Pam D. June 4, 2017, 10:06 pm

    Great card! So excited to see all the wonderful inspiration from all the talent! Thanks for the hop!

  • Karen Sturdivant June 4, 2017, 10:11 pm

    You have really outdone yourself this time. This SOA is going to be hard to top. I am so infatuated with your products and so glad I found you.

  • Taasha Blevins June 4, 2017, 10:24 pm

    I can’t wait for this SOA. They get better and better every time you release.
    I’m inspired by the things around me. I’m also inspired by the other Stampnation members, you, the dream team and the other wonderful card makers/designers in the crafting community.

  • Sarah Greber June 4, 2017, 10:25 pm

    I am so excited for this blog hop and your collection. You had me at the medallions. I love your story of inspiration and that your daughter went to Europe for herself. I am inspired by the crafting community all the time. I’m also inspired by people who work really hard, and who make a difference in the world. Thanks for being one of them!

  • Z Sullivan June 4, 2017, 10:31 pm

    Another wonderful collection, Catherine. I especially love the medallion set. My kids inspire me to be the best Me I can be, but I am also inspired by my mother who helped me be who I am, and by successful women like you. Thanks for the inspiration.

  • Clare June 4, 2017, 10:34 pm

    My husband, Paul inspires me. He supports all my endeavors and sometimes gives me that push when I feel just a little like slacking. Lol

  • Janet June 4, 2017, 10:39 pm

    I love this card and the beautiful stamps. I am inspired by any form of nature. I love the creations of this earth.

  • Maggie B June 4, 2017, 10:58 pm

    Hi CP ~ This collection is your best yet and I can’t wait to get my hot little hands on it (go ahead and just ship it now!! lol). I find inspiration all around me and in the most “odd” places. I recently used a lacy cupcake holder as a stencil and then colored it with Distress Inks to partially add it to the card….sounds strange but turned out quite lovely. The members of your DT inspire me all the time and I “found” you thanks to the first one I “stalked,” Laurel Beard!! LOL Have an awesome week! ~HUGS~
    #kindnessmatters

  • Marlene June 4, 2017, 11:01 pm

  • Linda Anderson June 4, 2017, 11:29 pm

    I am inspired by all of the beauty I see around me outside: the lovely, colorful flowers ,the squirrels chasing each other across my yard and the pretty little hummingbird at my flowers on the step!

  • ANN GREENE June 4, 2017, 11:52 pm

    I can’t wait to get started.

  • Lynn Fletcher June 5, 2017, 12:07 am

    Wow! Catherine this stamp set is so in! Love the color scheme and the embossing powder really adds the final touch with the glitter in it! :)

  • NC_Donna June 5, 2017, 12:10 am

    Love your kits (!) and love to look to the world around me to find inspiration! I’ll find a design in car blinkers ahead of me or in an email graphic, or just in the colors I see with my eyelids closed in the sunshine!

  • Nana Griffin June 5, 2017, 12:26 am

    All of the wonderful ideas are what inspire me.

  • Diane Durbin June 5, 2017, 12:29 am

    I love looking at all the samples. The colored circles on your card are great and I love the “best” font!

  • Kimberly June 5, 2017, 12:49 am

    I tend to find a lot of inspiration looking at the nature around me period I love looking at the colors of trees and of the sky and beautiful sunsets period I also find inspiration in my friends clothing. I like to look at the colors on there and then add them to my cards.

  • Linda June 5, 2017, 1:00 am

    I am loving this collection. I’m inspired by my garden and by the colors of sunrises and sunsets. I love being outside and capturing some of that feeling in my cards. This is going to be wonderful making cards with this set.

  • Marcia Fellner June 5, 2017, 1:14 am

    Looks another wonderful set. Somehow I will need to find a way to order this one too. So many wonderful examples from you and and the other designers. Maybe I will be luck enough to win it this time around. Congrats on another wonderful set.

  • Christine H June 5, 2017, 1:27 am

    So many ideas springing into my head that this set would be great for!! Those medallions are definitely a winner for male cards! Love your example!

  • Beth Karschnick June 5, 2017, 2:03 am

    I am inspired by things around me. Anything from nature to a design on a paper towel.
    Cute card, Catherine.

  • Sharon Nesvog June 5, 2017, 2:17 am

    Catherine! Love your cards…as always! And I love this new SOA Collection!! Can’t wait to get my hands on these wonderful goodies!!! ☺

  • Dawn Kloman June 5, 2017, 2:39 am

    I am inspired by my husband. He is a “if a first you don’t succeed try, try again” type person. He’s always making things better!

  • Debbie Myers June 5, 2017, 2:45 am

    I think this is the best box ever!!! They just keep getting better and better. I’m inspired by my surroundings, the people I love and constant companion my beloved dog.

  • Anthony Macaluso June 5, 2017, 2:47 am

    I am inspired by my daughter and how strong she is. Being a single dad raising her alone is tough yet rewarding. When I lied in a hospital room for 28 days after a quadruple bypass she was my inspiration to be strong and and live life to the fullest. Now I am crafting on a regular alongside her.

  • miriam gault June 5, 2017, 3:16 am

    I am so inspired by the surroundings I work in every day. As a dairyfarmer in Westland NZ my farm is surrounded by mountains, bush (forest) lakes and streams. At this time of year the mountains start to get a dusting of snow and the scenery is different each and every day – always changing. On and don’t forget the sunrises and sunsets. They are pretty naturally inspiring as well.

  • Dawn T June 5, 2017, 5:11 am

    Gorgeous Gorgeous card.
    I’m inspired by all the wonderful people like you who share this amazing hobby with others.

  • Patricia Curtis June 5, 2017, 5:28 am

    I’m really excited about another SOA! Can’t wait to get mine and start playing around with it.

  • Janice Spaulding June 5, 2017, 6:12 am

    Love your cards I have seen for this SOA! Can’t wait to create interesting backgrounds to stamp the feather and flowers like silhouettes!

  • Bette June 5, 2017, 7:07 am

    Women around me inspire me to see who I am. I don’t feel like I measure up and they tell me what I’ve done for them and that drives me forward.

  • Tara Powell June 5, 2017, 8:02 am

    This box is fabulous! Can not wait for the pajama party!

  • Hope June 5, 2017, 8:41 am

    So lovin’ this collection!!! All the samples are “naturally inspiring”!!!! :)

  • Jennifer Schuler June 5, 2017, 9:25 am

    This box looks amazing! Love the Medallion stamp set!

  • carol June 5, 2017, 9:32 am

    Catherine, your card is certainly ‘dapper and handsome'; a design laden with possibilities! While your card is certainly marvelous, your description of how your daughter inspires you truly steals the show. She sounds like quite the go-getter and in this ever-changing world, that trait will serve her well! I dare say she takes after her mom, because YOU have definitely chased after – and caught – your own dreams. Thank you for the giveaway opportunity!
    ~carol

  • carol June 5, 2017, 9:35 am

    Ooops…forgot to add my sources of inspiration: the talents, creativity and encouragement from fellow crafters for my card-making and my niece and nephew, who make me want to become a better person – and awesome aunty – every. single. day.
    ~carol

  • Susan Wareham June 5, 2017, 9:40 am

    Great cards I love the simplicity of just stamping and that is what I always see from you so You inspire me to just enjoy stamping.

  • Arianna Barbara June 5, 2017, 9:54 am

    I love this new beautiful collection!|!! Adorable card too!!!

    Had to miss the last box, but am getting this one for sure! The possibilities seem endless.

  • Ingrid June 5, 2017, 11:29 am

    Thanks for the masculine card; I’m always looking for ideas. Nature inspires me in so many ways by its beauty and mysteries. I love a delicate spider web with raindrops on it caught in the sunlight so they sparkle.

  • Brandy Duncan June 5, 2017, 11:31 am

    My Mom really inspires me. She has Huntington’s disease and was diagnosed around 15 years ago. She is a real trooper. Most people only live around 10 years after being diagnosed and she is still hanging on. She suffers a lot and can’t do anything for herself, but even though she can’t hardly talk, she manages to say I love you and smiles. This dreadful disease has taken away so much, but it has really taught us to value our life and the ability to live life to the fullest.

  • Erika DeJesus June 5, 2017, 12:02 pm

    I think I am going to have to find ways to be creative with this Medallion stamp set! It looks SO lovely when someone else uses it. Congrats to Anna! Best of luck to her!

  • Margaret June 5, 2017, 12:17 pm

    I’m so looking forward to this collection. My inspiration comes from so many things; a pattern on a dress or purse, an advertisement, nature, to fellow crafters. There just are so many places to get inspiration, even our dreams:)

  • Donna Kay June 5, 2017, 12:32 pm

    I’m inspired by amazing artist like the women on this blog hop! it’s fun to see what they do and take it and make it mine.

  • Phyllis Sinclair June 5, 2017, 12:37 pm

    I have to learn to be more confident with color.

  • Shelley June 5, 2017, 12:48 pm

    Amazing talent! Thank you for sharing your gift and passion with us. I am inspired by the beauty in all forms around me.

  • Carol lydiate June 5, 2017, 1:17 pm

    I just love this SOA collection. From the moment I saw it I saw fantastic potential for me to make more wonderful cards to sell to raise money towards the new MRI scanner at the hospital I work for in Taunton, Somerset, UK. They are working to raise £1m for this scanner which will be such a blessing to the county. I have received many compliments for my cards from all who have received/bought them. Your collection fills me with fresh motivation for this cause. PS: living in the U.K. I was disappointed when I was charged import tax on the last box I received and said I wouldn’t order again- but …… I think I will have to back track on that as I must have this collection!!! Thank you. PS. I have my eye on your fab inks too. I uae the foundation colours now and am soooooo impressed with them. All the best to you and your team for all you do to inspire and equip us all in our craft.

  • paige June 5, 2017, 1:35 pm

    My husband says glitter isn’t masculine….well, that shows HIM! Love the card Catherine!

  • Darby W June 5, 2017, 3:11 pm

  • Mary Holshouser June 5, 2017, 3:40 pm

    I’ve been inspired by all of the cards I’ve
    seen on this hop. the DT has done an
    excellent job of providing starting points
    for my cards.
    thanks for having the hop.

  • Deborah Jenkins June 5, 2017, 4:42 pm

    I love the new spiro-die! it is just so cool. Now I need a stencil to match, or I’ll have to go buy a new spiro-graph. :)

  • irene Grau June 5, 2017, 4:44 pm

  • Elizabeth G June 5, 2017, 5:19 pm

    I am naturally inspired by what products i have to work with in my craft room, some products i have aren’t the best but i always try and make them the best, but then i have heard people say if something doesn’t turn out right, that just shows the creator that it has been handmade. thank you to Catherine and your blog hoppers for great inspiration, unfortunately i can only comment on here and one blog hopper, so not the best of luck for me to try and win, but is fun to see what everyone can create, as its always different.

  • Deb June 5, 2017, 5:33 pm

    I am new to stamping and cards – thank you for the inspiration! That is a great masculine card!

  • Letty Blanchard June 5, 2017, 5:44 pm

  • Kirsty vittetoe June 5, 2017, 6:01 pm

    Perfect masculine card.
    I enjoy sitting in my backyard surrounded by flowers and trees, listening to the birds chirping at the bird bath.

  • Fran Weinberg June 5, 2017, 6:19 pm

    I am inspired every day by my surroundings. All I have to do is look around. Sometimes it’ll be a color in a piece of fabric/clothing, sometimes by a headline or book title, or a poem. Sometimes the music playing on the car radio will inspire me.

  • Treebug June 5, 2017, 6:20 pm

    such a fantastic card, I love it!
    I am inspired by my family and by my crafting friends!

  • Arlene D June 5, 2017, 6:31 pm

  • Carol Hardie June 5, 2017, 8:27 pm

    I am inspired by my sister who has fought cancer 3 different times and survived. She is a reminder to me to be the best person I can be Everyday …. no matter what. Laughter also inspires me …. because the world needs more kindness and laughter!!

  • Susan Nixon June 5, 2017, 8:39 pm

    Your girls are both so beautiful. You must feel so fortunate to have daughters who are intelligent, talented and attractive. Thanks for sharing this masculine card. I enjoy watching your videos and your instagram shots – lots of inspiration there! dezertsuz at gmail

  • Cynthia Johnson June 5, 2017, 9:08 pm

    I get inspired by my flower garden. I just love the colors and textures. The butterflies and bumblebees seem to be inspired by them also, even a hummingbird occasionally. That, in combination with videos, gives me continuous inspiration. I love your stories about your girls. I am happy you are sending some strong women out into the world, we need more of them! I also love to watch your videos because you either change your mind near the end or you make a little boo-boo and just slap a sequin on it and move on. It just tears me out of the frame to mess up so I want to be more like you.

  • Cheryl Jones June 5, 2017, 9:17 pm

    Catherine, I am so excited for this collection. I love nature and the birds of a feather set is right up my alley. But it all looks fabulous. And leave it to you, there’s more. Some exclusive Embossing Powder. Yahoo. And that’s still not all. A surprise ink color. Woot.

    Wow! So excited. Thanks.

  • FeM June 5, 2017, 9:29 pm

    Nice collection. Inspiration is everywhere.

  • Abby June 5, 2017, 9:31 pm

  • Darla June 6, 2017, 12:22 am

    That embossing powder looks amazing! Love the card

  • Karin W June 6, 2017, 12:26 am

    Great masculine card ideas!

    A fantastic masculine card (even with the embossing powder)!!! Most men will just see a gorgeous card, but will not pay too much attention to the shine of the embossing. At least my husband would not notice that. :-)
