Stamp of Approval Love is in the Air Collection – Product Reveal Day #1

Share This!

SOA_LITA_Blog_Wait-List YOU GUYS!  I'm shouting from the rooftops because it's my favorite time of the quarter!  We have been working on this Stamp of Approval Collection for months and finally revealing it to you is all sorts of exciting for us.

With more than 10,000 Stamp of Approval Collections sold over the past few years, this box and concept is more popular than ever.  For those of you that have been along on our journey, THANK YOU!  If this will be your first collection, buckle up, 'cause you are going to love this!

Our Stamp of Approval Collections  began with a the idea of bringing stampers a carefully curated box of products that were created to go together, coordinate, and compliment each other.

The days of loading up your cart with products that catch your eye (which is awesome), only to go home and have no clue what to do with them (NOT awesome!) is OVER!

Imagine an amazing night of crafting with a pile of polished hand made cards ready to send to your friends and family.  That's what will happen when you get your hands on this box!

We even provide a downloadable Project Guide which includes the Design Teams’ favorite cards along with step-by-step instructions on how to make the project – for FREE!

You’ll never lack for ideas on using the products you just purchased!

Want to learn more?  Click here for all the need-to-know, our video explaining it all and to grab your spot on the wait list!  Our collections are while supplies last and two of our collections last year sold the first day – before public ordering even opened!

Are you ready to meet some of the products in the Love is in the Air Collection?

  • Love is in the Air Stamp Set
  • Happiness Enclosed Stamp Set
  • Love Die
  • Sunburst Die


Here are a few cards I made…then in the video, I'll show you all these products and make another card using masking, covering mistakes (are you surprised!?), sponging and second generation stamping.

Love My Time with You Love my time with you – The chevron border on the side is from the Happiness Enclosed Stamp Set and the rest of the stamps are from the Love is in the Air Stamp Set.

Lucky Charms Love close up I dubbed this card “Lucky Charms” – pink hearts, blue diamonds, yellow stars and green clovers!  The love was cut 3 times, adhered one on top of another, then covered with two way glue and covered in Glass Slipper Glitter.

Lucky Charms Love Are you ready to see these products?

There are quite a few techniques wrapped up in this one little card!

I stamped the smaller balloon on copy paper, cut it out and added 2 Way Glue to the back.  Once I let it dry, it became a temporary adhesive (think: Post-it Note) and it's now perfect to use as a mask!  Once I stamped the pink balloon, I added the balloon mask over the top and stamped the second balloon.  Remove the mask and it looks like one balloon is floating in front of the other!

Love is in the Air with Sunburst

Did you see how I covered my mistake?  When I stamped the Love, I didn't stamp down evenly, so the bottom of the sentiment didn't come out.  Don't you love when that happens?  You're done with a card that has lots of stamping and OOOPS!

No worries, a sentiment strip fixed the problem!  I used our Smoke& Mirrors Cardstock, heat embossed with white and adhered that right over the boo-boo.

Hope you enjoyed today's first product reveals – stay tuned, tomorrow I have another video coming with more goodies from the Love is in the Air Collection.   We'll also be on Facebook Live later with more project ideas using this collection!

If you aren't on the Wait List yet, hop over here and grab your spot!  These collections sell out quickly!

  • Marianne January 2, 2018, 4:21 pm

    Love what you’ve done with the new products here, Catherine. You first card is so sweet with the hearts hanging down from the cloud and I love how you’ve used the small stamps to create your background on your second card. And I absolutely love the new sunburst die. Looking forward to see more.

  • Mrs Annette Pope January 3, 2018, 2:21 am

    Hi Catherine love all of the cards, colours are fab, nice to know that even the best of us can make a mistake and what a great idea to cover it. Just wish I could get the box of goodies, but postage just makes it more than I can afford, but I can use your inspiration and use what goodies I have. Many thanks for your videos they are fun

    I have found that I “love” layering the cut out words like you have done.

    I love the idea for the balloons, the use of the mask is awesome…AND who doesn’t like a cover-up…hahaha..

  • colleen crawford January 6, 2018, 8:39 pm

    I have been a member of Stamp Nation for a little over two years. (I bought the first SOA bx and love it!) I am more of a lurker than poster, but I do so appreciate the talent, tips and techniques shared by others. May be I will get brave enough to post pictures of my projects!

  • Grammajoni January 6, 2018, 9:43 pm

    This kit looks wonderful. My favorite is the cloud raining hearts.

  • Judy bliss January 6, 2018, 10:25 pm

    can’t wait to see these products in person!

  • Ruth Rowe January 7, 2018, 9:58 am

    The one with all the little colored stamps. I love that effect. Never thought of using small stamps together to make a background. Pretty.

  • Rosemary Lettieri January 7, 2018, 6:09 pm

  • Donna Cervantez January 7, 2018, 9:40 pm

    Love the balloons

  • LilyAnn January 8, 2018, 12:18 am

    Love the sunburst and am thinking of many ways to use it. Also like the glue to form an adhesive backing when masking making it easy to remove after top stamping is done. Balloons are a favorite for making cards … both sets.

  • Linda Steinbaugh January 8, 2018, 12:31 am

    I am a SN member. I love the cards you’ve made so far!

  • Crystal Lewis January 8, 2018, 1:46 am

    I love the sunburst and the “lucky charms” stamps.

  • Lorie January 8, 2018, 8:41 am

    That starburst is just my style….!

  • Caren Adkinson January 8, 2018, 7:18 pm

    Love the colors together!

  • Becky Szabo January 8, 2018, 8:03 pm

    Cute stamp set and love the masking idea!
