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!

    My favorite thing about this collection is how well you managed to make it more than just a Valentine’s collection. In fact, I feel like it’s more a love set that just happens to work for Valentine’s Day too. The more Valentine’s releases I’ve seen, the more I realize just what a feat this is, so well done. I love pretty much everything about this set!

  • FD91354 January 9, 2018, 10:07 pm

    Lovely cards. I like how the SOA releases the product all coordinated and this plans so you aren’t stumped.. such a great idea.

  • Sharon L. January 10, 2018, 9:02 am

    Great cards, love the blue and green color combo.

  • Iris Soscia January 10, 2018, 4:42 pm

    Love the stamps and dies. Cute cards too.

  • Sarah Greber January 10, 2018, 9:38 pm

    I love SOA week! What a fun time it is. I’m loving the ‘love’ script in this set. You do such a great job building up the excitement. Cheers to another great SOA!

  • Kris Reeves January 11, 2018, 12:20 am
