Counting Blessings Stamp of Approval Blog Hop Day 1: Bloomin’ Bouquet

Share This!


Welcome to the first day of Blog Hops celebrating the Counting Blessings Stamp of Approval Collection!

Over the next three days, our Design Team will be sharing loads of fabulous products using the stamps, dies and stencils in this collection.

Did you know that with each SOA Collection, we compile each designer’s favorite card(s) into an amazing Project Guide download and you get it FREE with your box!  This Guide will be a handy reference tool to pull out with more than 30 projects (and step-by-step written instruction!) you can make with the goodies in your box!  Pretty awesome, right?

So not only do you get a box FULL of brand NEW goodness that was designed to compliment each other, but you get a whole project guide to go with it so you are never lacking for ideas and inspiration for projects to make with that box.

You know what all this means?

No more sitting down to craft and being stumped!  You’re going to have tons of ideas, your creative juices will be flowing and you’ll be one happy stamper.

How does ordering work?

Our Stamp of Approval Collections are while supplies last and when they are sold out, they are sold out.  (You will be able to purchase the items individually later in our shop.)

Tuesday, August 15 at 10 pm eastern:  PJ Party Release for StampNation Members. We’ll share some fun and open ordering early for you guys.

Wednesday, August 16 at 9 am eastern:  WAIT LIST members will receive their link to purchase the collection.

Wednesday August 16 at 6 pm eastern: if the collection isn’t sold out yet, general ordering will open. Our last collection sold out just to the wait list!  So make sure you put your name on it!


NEW PRODUCT ALERT!!!  We are premiering a new product in this collection and each box gets the small 1.5″ square block for free!

Clear Blocks Each SOA box will include the small square block for FREE to celebrate the launch of this product.

These are our definition of the perfect Acrylic Grid Stamping Block and we worked with the manufacturer for almost a year to make them awesome.  These are exclusive to us, you won’t find them anywhere else!

Why do we love them?

  • the indentations fit your fingers perfectly
  • the grids to help you line up your stamps
  • three sizes we use the most
  • lightweight for their size


All three sizes will be in the store with the launch of this collection.  We have a pretty good stock of the two larger blocks, but if you want an extra small block, we expect to sell out of those pretty quickly.  (Don’t worry, we WILL restock them!  I need 4 or 5 on my desk at all times!)

Special Introductory Pricing:

  • Small Square Acrylic Stamping Block  1.5″ x 1.5″ – $4.95
  • Small Rectangle Acrylic Stamping Block 1.25″ x 3.5″ – $5.95
  • Large Rectangle Acrylic Stamping Block 3.25″ x 4.25″ – $9.95

  • GeoTrio Stencil
  • Thankful Die
  • Bloomin’ Bouquet Stamp Set

    These stamps are so versatile…I can seem them being used in many ways and for many different projects and in my personal art journaling. I can’t wait to see more, AND to get my own collection. What a GRAND idea!

  • Stanlee Runner August 14, 2017, 9:19 am

    Love the beautiful cards. And the new stamp blocks are great!

  • Beth August 14, 2017, 9:33 am

    Amazing as always. Thank you a beautiful SOA

  • Fran W August 14, 2017, 9:44 am

    Love all the products! And your cards, especially the leaves stamped in Black Jack. The leaf stencil looks to have lots of creative possibilities. Since I am unable to purchase this time, my fingers are crossed to win it.

  • Elaine R August 14, 2017, 9:48 am

    Awesome collection <3

  • Tani August 14, 2017, 9:48 am

    Love his kit.

  • Linda S in NE August 14, 2017, 9:51 am

    My first thought was, “Who needs more stamp blocks”, but the more I look at them, I do see their uniqueness…so I think I need more blocks!

  • Becky Reynolds August 14, 2017, 9:57 am

    Love this new release. Can wait to see more of the blog hop!

  • Nancy Taylor August 14, 2017, 9:59 am

    I’m new to your site and can’t wait to start using your Stamp of Approval products. I most definately will be ordering this new set, Counting Blessing on Tuesday.

  • Laurie Schlichter August 14, 2017, 10:07 am

    Love ❤️ the versatility of the groom trio. I’m glad the sentiments are larger in the bless, thankful and grateful set. I make a card several times a week for my husband and the greeting is easier to read when it’s larger.

  • Debbie Selby August 14, 2017, 10:17 am

    This kit is looking very good to me. Love the Blooming Bouquet

  • Anna Lapping August 14, 2017, 10:19 am

    I can’t wait to get this set! I’ve already been planning the cards I’m going to make. My birthday is September 19, and I do birthday cards for a Facebook group and post them. For my birthday, instead of a birthday card, I’m going to do a gratitude card to indicate how thankful I am for all my friends in that group. Also planning on some Thanksgiving cards.

  • Geniva Robles August 14, 2017, 10:19 am

    So exciting! Love Blog hop’s!

  • susan r wareham August 14, 2017, 10:20 am

    Great new collection Catherine, lovely cards you have created

  • Leighanne Rappaport August 14, 2017, 10:22 am

    I am excited to see this SOA kit because it will be a first for me! Looks like some fantastic supplies!

  • Sandra August 14, 2017, 10:28 am

    Love the flowers.

  • Mary Holshouser August 14, 2017, 10:29 am

    Love how you’ve put the flowers
    in a corner or had them trailing
    across the card. Fun design ideas.
    this is going to be a wonderful box.
    Looking forward to seeing more.
    thanks for sharing.

  • Ishani August 14, 2017, 10:31 am

    Loved this release.. the thankful die before the Thanksgiving cards are made, is so thoughtful. Loved your cards. I am swooning over your colourful inks!

  • Rosemary August 14, 2017, 11:07 am

    I can’t wait to add the new neutral inks to my collection! I love the way the black jack background stamping looks with the blooming bouquet. What a clever idea!!!!

  • Melanie August 14, 2017, 11:10 am

    Wow! This is my first exposure to a Stamp of Approval Collection. The projects I’ve seen so far made with the Collection are fabulous!

  • Lori Walker August 14, 2017, 11:15 am

    I have never used a template before – and now I REALLY want the geo trio stencil – it looks so easy to do!!! Where have I been?!

  • Teri S. August 14, 2017, 11:24 am

    This is a fab release Catherine! I can see how versatile it is & that is so important. I really like the looks of your ink pads. Have to save up… :) Thanks for the chance to win also.

  • Ria August 14, 2017, 11:30 am

    Just awesome to see the blog hop and all the cards.

    Thanks for the chance Catherine, I haven’t had the chance yet to try your inks, hopefully sometime in the next year :)

  • Deena Canup August 14, 2017, 12:39 pm

  • Maureen August 14, 2017, 12:41 pm

    I love card #2. The flowers are gorgeous and the sentiment “you matter” is perfect for times when a friend might need a pick me up.

  • Laurie Schlichter August 14, 2017, 12:43 pm

    Love the subtlety of black jack ink. I’m a big fan of the larger sentiments.

  • Debbie McAnany August 14, 2017, 12:45 pm
