Celebrate Friends SOA Blog Hop Day 2!



Hi Everyone! Welcome to day 2 of the Stamp of Approval Blog Hop! 
If you've been following along you should've arrived from Jenny Colacicco's blog but if not don't worry, I've got a list of all the blogs below with links attached.

Let me start off by saying I LOVE THIS COLLECTION!!
It's cute! It's fun! It's on trend! It's awesome!



My first card features the Punctuated Party stamp set, the WooHoo stamp set and the Morning Joe Border Dies. I die cut the edge of the card base with one of the Morning Joe dies.  The striped circles are stamped with Rockin' Red, Party Dress and Tiki Torch. I stamped the words with versamark onto some Smoke card stock and heat set them with white embossing powder. Each one is cut out close to the edges and adhered to a white panel piece cut to 2 3/4" x 5 1/4" some with craft foam and some without. The whole panel is added to the base with more craft foam.

My next card features the Punctuated Party stamp set. I started by masking off the dots that are inside the speech bubble and stamping it 3x onto some white card stock with Black Jack ink. Next I stamped a different sentiment inside each bubble, cut them out and added them to a panel cut to 3 1/2" x 4 3/4" with some craft foam. Using Rockin' Red, Party Dress, Tiki Torch and Black Jack I stamped the smaller stamps around the speech bubbles and finished the card off with a few sequins.

Very cute cards. Although I love trying out new techniques and making very unique cards I love when products do most of the work for you. It's always nice to be able to sit down and have the cards practically make themselves when you are in a hurry. Catherine Pooler's Stamp of Approval collections make that happen. Love the new collection & all the new choices. Your cards are great.
