Naturally Inspired Stamp of Approval Emboss Resist2_1

Stamp of Approval Naturally Inspired


I've been inspired by some of the fun color combos that the Design Team has been using – kinda like this card by Justine Hovey from  Blog Hop Day 2!

Orange, yellow and purple?  YES, please!

So I broke out my Flirty Fuchsia, Tutti Frutti and Tiara ink pads along with my White Embossing Powder and got to work.

Naturally Inspired Stamp of Approval Blog Hop Day 3: Emboss Resist Card

I am smitten with the spirograph stamp and the Spiro Doily.

Who's with me?

I've not even scratched the surface with all the amazing ways these stamps and dies can be used!

If you missed any of these week's projects and product reveals, click here to visit the main page of my blog, the scroll through the posts to see what you missed.
Naturally Inspired Stamp of Approval Emboss Resist CP Designs ink are great to use on techniques like this because they don't dry immediately.  Since they stay wet for a few seconds, you have time to get a good blend.

TIP:  Take your time and use a light touch for best results.  (yes, I have major issues with this because I am NOT a patient, slow crafter!)

If you haven't been introduced to our inks yet, click here to learn more.  Here's a video showing some spectacular properties of these inks.

Eva happy All week we've been celebrating the theme of inspiration and how we are inspired.  Day 3 leads me to my youngest daughter…Eva.

If you hang out with us on Facebook Live, I'm sure you've met her. She's been known to pop in from time to time to stamp, celebrate product reveals and even show off her dance costumes.

Eva inspires me every day with her upbeat, positive attitude. Since she was pretty tiny, I've noticed how she embraces life and really lives in the moment.  She's always twirling and dancing and laughing around the house and I can count on her to bring a smile to my face.

I hope you've enjoyed reading a bit about my girlies, I've loved sharing them with you and I've LOVED reading your inspiring stories in my blog comments!

  • Caroline B June 6, 2017, 9:19 am

    Hi Catherine, my favorite part of watching your videos is seeing your last-minute decisions (in this case, the little black stars) that tie the whole design together. I learn something every time! It is hard to pick a favorite part of this collection. I am really loving the Wildflowers, but that BEST die and accompanying sentiments is looking so versatile! Can’t wait for the PJ party

  • JuliaP June 6, 2017, 9:20 am

    Love the video and the colors that you used on your card. Great inspiration from the all of the design team.

  • Donna Neal June 6, 2017, 9:26 am

    I enjoy watching the creative process come to life on your videos – thanks for posting them! I love the emboss resist technique – thanks for reminding me about how gorgeous that is. :) Looking forward to my first pajama party with Stamp Nation tonight!

  • clare June 6, 2017, 9:37 am

    Love that colour combo, its really beautiful and warm summer sunsets come to mind. I keep changing my mind on which stamp set i like best. First I was all for the medallions but I starting to really like the garden flowers and the silhouettes Ive been seeing.

  • Diane M June 6, 2017, 9:44 am

    I can’t choose a favorite. Your card is great Thanks for sharing.

  • Laura Miller June 6, 2017, 9:47 am

  • Kathy Serrahn June 6, 2017, 9:51 am

  • SusanME June 6, 2017, 10:01 am

    Great card! Can’t wait to get my hands on this release … won’t be joining the PJ party tonight, though – this ol’ body needs her rest :) I might just wander into my craft room and order it if I wake up during the night, though :D

  • Christy Borfitz June 6, 2017, 10:02 am

    Love this card, Catherine! I think the item I will use first is the spiro doily but I am so excited to use everything! Also I am looking forward to the pajama party tonight!

  • Tara Powell June 6, 2017, 10:02 am

    I am in Love with this box!!! It’s been so much fun reading about your girlies :) Thanks for sharing them with us!

  • Theresa June 6, 2017, 10:06 am

    How do I pick just one product when they are all so amazing?
    I’m excited for the lattice die and the best stamp set but I’m must excited to see the ink color.

  • Paula Wolfe June 6, 2017, 10:11 am

  • Susan Powell June 6, 2017, 10:38 am

    Oh my gosh I love how the ink colors blended together – love that color combo! Such a fun card. If I had to pick one item that I’m most excited about getting it would have to be…… THE BOX! Because the box comes with everything in it!! Does that count hahaha – Seriously though since you asked I’ll pick one – I really like the ‘best’ die and the coordinating stamp set – I need more sentiment dies and I love the fonts.

  • Bobby June 6, 2017, 10:39 am

    The more I see the more I have to have this kit. Sheer awesomeness, Catherine.

    My favorite product of yours is your INKS!!! The colors are just amazing, and look great together. You designed them just right, like you said, to mix and match together. NICE. I like how the colors blended so nicely on these cards, too. Orange Twist might be my favorite.

  • Darla June 6, 2017, 10:54 am

    I’ve looked all the cards. They are amazing. I do wish that we could see some of the insides of the cards! Please!!

Thank you for the awesome collection you have put together. PJ party tonight!

  • Trina Chaska June 6, 2017, 11:00 am

    So pretty. I love the color combination you used.

  • Brandy Duncan June 6, 2017, 11:43 am

  • Priscilla June 6, 2017, 12:06 pm

    Yes! Yes! Yes! Love the color combo… eager to place my order!!!

  • Suzanne T. June 6, 2017, 12:10 pm

    It is amazing how you bring your girls in for inspiration to a project, because some times our mind does not work. As for me when I see my little grandson and see how my daughter takes him places, it too inspires me to make a project. I think you have hit the head on the nail with this amazing SOA Box of goodies. Looking at all the projects, it takes me to a place of imagination, because I just love taking walks through the parks, neighborhoods, and I just love looking at all the green plants, trees, and flowers, along with the sunset, when at a beach. This set can bring more inspiring projects, and too will work with all the other SOA collections.

  • Marsha June 6, 2017, 12:11 pm

    I just love the medallion mixup and spiro doily!!!

  • Lisa K June 6, 2017, 12:18 pm

    Love you color combo and today’s card! I enjoy watching your process as you create. Eva is growing up so quickly! I enjoy seeing her video when she manages to create one.

  • Mary Beth Krakowski June 6, 2017, 12:24 pm

    I seem to forget emboss resist and then am really wowed by an example. Just now with your post, wow! Love the colors.

  • Linda June 6, 2017, 12:29 pm

    Love the technique! I think I’m most excited about the flower set but that’s a tough choice!

  • Fran Weinberg June 6, 2017, 12:40 pm

    Catherine, you and all of your design team members inspire me! And I think this is your best collection yet! Thank you!!!

  • Debbie Rumpza June 6, 2017, 12:44 pm

    Lovely card! I love the ink blending.

  • Ruth Ann Smith June 6, 2017, 12:44 pm

    Your card is so pretty and you did it so quickly, love that. The spiro doily is a must have.

  • Beth Swisher June 6, 2017, 12:46 pm

    Am having so much fun following on the blog hop. So much creativity. I love the sentiment set, the flowers, the medallion set, oh gosh love it all.
    My inspiration continue to be my children. My other daughter was diagnosed last year with Chrones disease. She had 14 inches of her intestine removed, had some complication but is doing fairly well. She continues to work full time, is a great mom to her 8 an 3 year old boys, is a La Leche leader and is an ambassador selling Noon Day product (a company that allows women in poor countries to become employed by making beautiful jewelry, scarfs, handbags). She just keeps going in spite of her disease.
    Have to tell you how proud I am of my last child. (Aren’t you glad I only have four to brag about.) He is a chef and has finally realized he has a drinking problem and has been attending AA. I pray every day for him. It is a hard journey as his uncle, grandmother and grandfather died alcoholics and his dad, my husband is what he calls a “non-performing” one of 42 years.

  • Debbie June 6, 2017, 12:52 pm

    I am truly inspired Catherine, I am in a tizz, i want your inks and i want this release…. what to do? What to do?? Lovely quick card, love the colours

  • Connie Brooks June 6, 2017, 1:30 pm

    I’m loving the card you just made. It’s a KISS card for me to try. I think I can do this.
    My stamp set I’m most excited about is “Birds of a Feather”.
    I’m so excited for tomorrow to order my present to myself. That’s funny…I have a store in my studio. LOL.

  • Tasha Dawson June 6, 2017, 1:30 pm

  • Ruth June 6, 2017, 6:47 pm

    This Stamp of Approval box looks like fun but I couldn’t find the cost any where and I didn’t want to sign up for a box util I knew the cost. I did try to go to the shop but I had difficulty there also. The drop down menu would disappear as I tried to go to it.

  • Judy June 6, 2017, 6:49 pm

    Eva inspires me. Her energy and outgoing personality always make me smile. I hope all the girls have the best performances this week, especially the plate, lol.

    You make ink blending look so effortless, I start off the paper and still end up with circles from the sponge all over.. I haven’t tried blending with CP Inks yet but I will.

    I’m excited for the whole collection. You and the Design Team have been providing us with some great inspiration for the past 3 days!

  • Lori Sauers June 6, 2017, 7:26 pm

    Hi Catherine, I am not sure what my favorite stamp is in this collection. I know I like the feathers a lot. So many choices, I really can’t decided. This last card you made, looks easy.I do love the colors blending together.

  • Jennifer Schuler June 6, 2017, 7:44 pm

    I love the feathers, the spirograph stamps & the dies! This Stamp of Approval Box you & the design team have put together is incredible. I really want it, but I have to really think about it due to the CDN – US $ exchange rate. Perchance I may win?

  • Shona Austin June 6, 2017, 8:55 pm

  • JoAnneR June 6, 2017, 9:51 pm

    This is one amazing release. I am so excited for the day it will hit my doorstep. I love every product in the box but I think the first set I will play with is the medallion mixup. I have this thing for circles. I don’t think I realized this before but as I think about some products I already own there are a lot of circle in my collection. I LOVE this medallion set and can’t wait for it to be added to my stash.

  • Marie June 6, 2017, 10:02 pm

    Another fun day of awesome inspiration and ideas! I’ve loved each stop on your hop – every day. I love how you are inspired by your kids. I am by mine, too. They help me not take things (including crafting) too seriously. They have creative ideas I wouldn’t normally think of!

  • Penny Walker June 7, 2017, 12:35 am

  • Kathy Doyle June 7, 2017, 12:36 am

    Love, love love all the pieces from this SOA box! So much inspiration from all three days of the hops. My head is ready to explode with all the ideas. I can’t wait to get my hands on these goodies!

  • Joyce Spear June 7, 2017, 12:39 am

    As much as I love every single item in this collection, I will mostly like break into the medallions set first — odd since I’m usually not a medallion person at all. The feather is set is going to be a close second.

    This is the second time I’ve seen you reference this SOA as the seventh collection, but I think it might be the eighth. 1) Friendship 2) Holiday 3) Young at Heart 4) Beautiful World 5) Lovely Notes 6) Candy Cane Lane 7) Perfect Reason 8) Naturally Inspired. Seventh or eighth regardless, congrats on your ongoing success!

  • deb kerns June 7, 2017, 12:44 am

    Love the dies in this collection!!

  • Cheryl Jones June 7, 2017, 3:58 am


    Thanks for sharing with us about your girls. Nice to hear the stories. I can’t wait to get Birds of a Feather stamp set. The medallion mix up looks interesting too.


  • Diane Durbin June 7, 2017, 4:17 am

    How could I decide my favorite from the box? But I do like the “best” die a lot.

  • Penny H June 7, 2017, 5:37 am

    I would love to win a box please, love the spirograph stamp and your ink colours are so beautiful!

  • Amanda June 7, 2017, 5:39 am

    Beautiful love the ink colors and the Spirograph ideas.

  • Debbie myers June 7, 2017, 5:43 am

  • Dawn T June 7, 2017, 6:15 am

  • Alamar June 7, 2017, 7:11 am

    The beautifully blended and colorful background is so yummy. It reminds me of a bowl of fresh, juicy fruit. LOL! The bold contrasting spirographs and text are a perfect complement.

  • Barbra L. June 7, 2017, 7:23 am

    This kit looks amazing!

    And to win one of your boxes … how delightful! Thanks
    for the chance. :-)

  • Katherine Kelley June 7, 2017, 11:49 am

    Beautiful card – I’m inspired to make one from what I have in my stash and using a Spirograph toy set I picked up at Target last year to play with( same relaxing effect that doodling brings on). If that doesn’t work – could try Kiragami folding and cutting to mimic that beautiful die. Or could just wait for the SoA – might be easier! Thanks for sharing the cards and the SoA kits.

  • Heather M North June 7, 2017, 11:51 am

    hahaha, Catherine, I did not know that was a spiro doily stamp. :D So cool! Love the color palette you used here and the way you’ve pulled your pieces together.

  • Barbara June 7, 2017, 11:54 am

    Great collection, the inks are so beautiful I can’t wait to see the new color. And the Wow embossing powder also! thanks so much for the inspiration :)

  • Meg June 7, 2017, 1:13 pm

    Would never have chosen those colours together but I love it!

  • Rose June 7, 2017, 2:19 pm

    Neat card. I love the resist technique and the stamps to the new kit are so pretty and versatile. Also love your inks. Are you coming out with the cubes so those with a limited budget can afford more of the colors?

  • Deb Mundy June 7, 2017, 8:16 pm

    Wow, these inks look awesome. I’d love to have some to try.

  • Carrie June 7, 2017, 8:35 pm

    I love everything about this box! Beautiful card!

  • Liz McAllister June 7, 2017, 8:43 pm

    Hi There CP ~ Another FANTABULOUS card and I CANNOT WAIT to get my hands on this latest collection!!!
