Naturally Inspired Stamp of Approval Blog Hop Day 2: Stamped and Die Cut Card

Share This!

NaturallyInspired_BlogHop Hello my dearies!  Thank you for popping in here for our 2nd blog hop celebrating the release of the Naturally Inspired Stamp of Approval Collection!

I was completely WOW’d by the cards on the hop yesterday, can you believe how many ways there are to put the pieces from this collection together?

Naturally Inspired Stamp of Approval 2 Today’s card is fairly simple, please watch the video to see how it came together and the products I used from this collection.

Naturally Inspired Stamp of Approval Blog Hop Day 2:  Stamped and Die Cut Card

I love the crosshatch scratchy stamp in a light color and Melon Ice was a perfect color for this.  The Aquatini and Tutti Frutti worked really well for the butterflies.

Naturally Inspired Stamp of Approval And this leaf from the Wild Garden Stamp Set.


Lisa Kirkbride, the illustrator for Perfect Vine from our last collection also illustrated this.  That girl can NAIL some floral!

Take a peek at the leaf stamped in Lime Rickey…our inks have a translucent property to them that can create some really cool effects.  When I stamped the leaf on the crosshatch, the leaf took on a really cool texture.  I love it!

And don’t get me started on that font.  I just love it.
Naturally Inspired Stamp of Approval 3 We asked the designers what inspires them and I’m loving reading their thoughts…my girls are what inspires me in life.
Alana Pooler en Pointe

Alana…my beautiful ballerina.

She’s been dancing since she was 5 years old and pretty much lives for it.  The passion and commitment I see from this little lady is incredible.  She had to take off  5 months from dance the second half of 2017 because of foot pain.  We have not found a cause for her pain, but have worked on strategies to help relieve her pain.  Taking a break from dance actually renewed and fueled her commitment and passion to a level she didn’t have before.

I see a lot of qualities in her that I see in myself and my older daughter and she inspires me to work through obstacles to achieve your goals!

    great idea to put all 6 cross-hatch for the special cut-out. I agree – the “inspire” is in a gorgeous font

  • Cynthia Johnson June 5, 2017, 9:34 pm

    I love this light and happy card! Your ballerina is beautiful and I know the hard work and sacrifice it takes to become a professional ballerina. I have always loved ballet but have never done it. Best of luck to Alana in her future. You are a great mom, and honestly, that is the most important thing we will ever do as women. I say that referring to people who choose to become mothers.

    Another great day of blog hop ideas! Love it! I already looked through them, but didn’t have time to comment until now. I like the outer shape of the lattice die, and how you’ve used it with the background stamp inside. Turned out great! I love how determined your daughter is. Certainly something to be inspired by. And you inspire all of us, with your passion for creating this community of crafters!
