SOA_LITA_BlogHop1 Welcome to the second day of Blog Hops celebrating the Love is in the Air Stamp of Approval Collection!

If you missed the first day, CLICK HERE to check it out.  Be sure to leave comments on the blogs for your chance to win.  The more comments you leave, the higher your chances of winning!

There are so many incredible cards on the Creative Team’s blog.  To make it easy for you, we have one place to see it all!  Click here to view our Pinterest Board!


We have another great way for you to get your inspiration….along with our favorite projects, you can also have the Step-by-step instructions on how to make these cards…in comes the….


With each SOA Collection, we compile each designer’s favorite card(s) into an amazing Project Guide download and you get it FREE with the purchase of the collection!

This Guide will be a handy reference tool to pull out with more than 30 card ideas (and step-by-step written instructions on how to make those hand made cards!) you can make with the stamps and dies that come in this quarter’s collection.  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.

LITA Happiness Enclosed My first card today showcases the Happiness Enclosed Stamp Set.

We created this stamp set to have great background images, accents and stamps for the back of your cards and the envelope.

One of my favorite ways to use this set is to stamp the airplane, present or envelope on the stamped pattern blocks, cut it out and BAM!  You have a stinkin’ cute patterned image!  See that in action on this Facebook Live  – you’ll also get some history on Stamp of Approval and get to know us better if you’re new ’round here!

The turquoise layer…I used my Fiesta Blue ink pad, ran it across my cardstock (called Direct-to-paper) to create Fiesta Blue Cardstock and die cut it with the Postage Stamp Die.

LITA Love and Banners The Postage Stamp Dies are fabulous for Clean and Simple cards like this and give some great texture rather than using a simple cut rectangle.

and the greeting – Love you always – it’s just timeless.

How about those darling heart banners? Those came straight from the Love is in the Air Dies which is an add-on product for this collection.  I used the same Direct-to-paper technique to color my cardstock before die cutting.


There are three video tutorials showing the stamps and dies that will come in this collection, here are the direct links:


If you’re new to our Stamp of Approval Collections, we do things a bit differently ’round these parts.  We love the element of surprise and the feeling of Christmas morning.

We absolutely show you everything that comes in this collection (with the exception of the mystery ink color!)…if you watch each of the above videos, you’ll see all the products (4 sets of stamps and 3 sets of dies), but we don’t show them all together in photographs.

We do it this way so that if you want a bit of a surprise…imagine, that box hits your doorstep, you open it up, peel back that tissue paper and you see these fabulous products all together for the very first time.  I love that feeling!

BUT!  If you want to see every product, up close and personal before you purchase, we get you!  Make sure you view the videos and you’ll see everything.

We were on Facebook Live last week talking about the method to our madness, giving some history of the company and there’s a stamping project at the end.  Click here to view it!

    I am getting more excited by this box. I love the postage dies. These cards are awesome.

  • Karen Kuschel January 7, 2018, 4:02 pm

    This is my first time following the Stamp of Approval reveal. I just recently received the set of Catherine Pooler Inks for Christmas and cannot believe all the different styles of cards to be made with one kit! I am so inspired and cannot wait for the chance to purchase. Glad I’m on the waitlist!!

  • Samantha January 7, 2018, 4:15 pm

    I love both of your cards and as always I’m loving Stamp of Approval, thanks for creating and sharing

  • Heike K. January 7, 2018, 4:21 pm

  • Phyllis January 7, 2018, 4:34 pm

    Loving these cards.

  • Phyllis Sinclair January 7, 2018, 4:55 pm

    Glad my internet is back. Was afraid I wouldn’t have it until tue and I would miss all the fun. Love the cards.

  • Denise D. January 7, 2018, 5:03 pm

    I am a StampNation member and I can’t wait until Monday night!! I love the cards you have made, so cute.

    So much inspiration here! I don’t know where I would start to create!

  • Sharon Field January 7, 2018, 5:33 pm

    Lovely cards……….the products are so versatile.

  • Theresa January 7, 2018, 5:49 pm

    Love, love, love this collection and being part of SN. Totally adoring all Shawna Klingerman’s lettering. I also love the “I’m gonna miss you” sentiment. I try to make the going away cards when someone quits for the staff to sign, but its hard to find an appropriate sentimate. I think with a liitle masking “gonna miss you” would be perfect. The heart banners are also sooooo cute! Sooo much stamping goodness to love in this collection.

  • Sammibug aka Samantha Houp aka Sammi January 7, 2018, 5:58 pm

    Beautiful cards, today! I am loving this Love is in the air collection., Oh, and I’m a Stamp Junkie!

  • Lynn January 7, 2018, 6:08 pm

    StampNation member here! I love the direct to paper inking technique. I’m definitely going to try that – I never seem to have the exact color paper I want even though I have a ton. Never again!
