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

    I have been trying to limit my purchases of Stamping supplies and I think the last SOA I purchased was Candy Cane Lane, or whichever came out after that one. Point is, I don’t need anymore stamps & dies, but when I saw this collection, there was no way I couldn’t NOT get it! Will be ordering as soon as ordering opens, will want the two new ink colors as well.

    Your cards are beautiful! My favorite is the rest one because I’m in love with those leaves! So excited for the release!
