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!)

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!

THANK YOU so much for celebrating with us for the release of our SEVENTH Quarterly Stamp of Approval Collection.  Releasing this product was a dream come true for me and I truly had no idea how wildly popular it would be and what it would lead to…my own product line, an office for the company, a staff of 8 ridiculously amazing women.  Wow!  Pinch me!

If it wasn’t for the amazing tribe of stampers that hang out with me, this would be an unrealized dream, so thank you!  HUGS, CP

    Catherine, your whole family inspires me! I love how quickly you can create a beautiful card, it helps me calm down and not fuss over mine so much! I have to say my fave stamp is the one that looks mixed media-like, with the feather? That one sold me on the set! And, I really like the dies. I love a good background die.

  • Suzanne Mastrorilli June 6, 2017, 5:11 pm

    Love this card, so beautiful!. I can’t wait to order my collection Yay!

  • Karen Sturdivant June 6, 2017, 5:22 pm

    I agree with you and I can’t wait to be smitten with the spirograph. I also love the lattice die.

  • Samantha Buse June 6, 2017, 5:26 pm

    OMG Love your work!!!!

  • Z June 6, 2017, 5:47 pm

    Lots of great inspiration in this hop. Thank you for sharing your stories and your CAS creations. I knew I had to have this collection when I saw the dies, so I am looking forward to release day.

  • Melissa Friedrich June 6, 2017, 6:33 pm

    LOVE this card, the color combo is awesome and the Medallion Mix up is my fave from this collection!

  • Glenda Lee Nutting June 6, 2017, 6:43 pm

    I just can’t get enough of these scrumptious colors!

  • Glenda Lee Nutting June 6, 2017, 6:44 pm

    What a great card! I love the colors!

  • 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.

  • Michelle King June 6, 2017, 6:50 pm

    I love those three colors together…stunning!!

  • Tammy Nyenhuis June 6, 2017, 7:25 pm

    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?

    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!
