Welcome to Day 1 of the Stamp of Approval The Perfect Reason Collection Blog Hop! Be sure to comment on every participating post on all three days of the blog hop for your chance to win one of these amazing boxes! If this is your first time hearing about Stamp of Approval, this is an exclusive collection designed exclusively for this particular box. The stamps and dies in the Stamp of Approval Collections are brand new on the market and won’t be released for individual sale for several months. I'm thrilled to be a part of this blog hop with the Stamp Nation Dream Team and several guest designers!
I have a lot to show you today so let's get started. My first card highlights the Perfect Reason stamp set and coordinating dies. The sentiment is from the Mod Squared stamp set.
I used the generation stamping - or stamping off - technique to get more variation from the ink colours. Tutti Frutti was stamped off so it isn't as dark in the blooms and Lime Rickey was stamped off for the interior of the flowers but not for the leaves or the berries. Aquatini was stamped at full power for the large flowers and partially stamped off for an ombre effect on the little flowers.
My second card features the Paisley Peacock stamp set and coordinating dies. There's so much you can do with this set and it was hard to choose a design! I created the tail fan using two of the feather images and stamped little legs for the peacock. The sentiment is from the You Did It stamp set.
Be sure to leave a comment at each stop along the way. The more you comment, the better your chances of winning! Day 2 and Day 3 Hop Lists will be posted on Catherine's blog so be sure to start there tomorrow and Tuesday. One winner will be chosen at random from each day's comments and announced on February 9th on Catherine's blog. The winners will win their box and if you happen to win but have already purchased the collection, you will be refunded.
