Catherine Pooler's Adoring You Stamp of Approval Blog Hop + GIVEAWAY!

Introducing the Adoring You Stamp of Approval Collection
It's time to celebrate a NEW Stamp of Approval Box from Catherine Pooler called Adoring You!  I think you'll adore this boxed collection 😁 and all of the fun products that are included!  I know I had a blast playing with them!


What is Stamp of Approval?
If you are unsure what the Stamp of Approval Box is, it is a quarterly hand picked, exclusive collection of products that were designed just for the box. The stamps, dies and other fun products in the Stamp of Approval Collection won’t be released for individual sale for several months over at the Catherine Pooler store.  There will be some add-on products that you can purchase along with your Stamp of Approval box and those can be found here when the products go live (schedule of release is below).

Be sure to subscribe to the Wait List so you will be emailed the purchase link when the collection goes on sale on January 9th! Some of these boxes have sold out quickly in the past so if you want one I'd suggest getting it now or it may be gone! 

This collection will be available in the Catherine Pooler store on Wednesday, January 9th at 6PM EST or if you are on the waitlist you can start shopping at 9 AM EST!  

Happy Anniversary with the Adore Die
For this first card, I'm sharing two today, I used the Adore die, included with the boxed collection.  It is named because when die cut, it makes a door.  Get it?  LOL!  You can also use it as a window.  It makes the perfect background for the cute birds from the Happy Together stamp set, also included in the collection.

Jen Carter Adoring Happy Together Adore Anniversary

I first die cut the Adore die with the lightest cardstock in the Smoke & Mirrors cardstock pack.  I love the grays in this paper pack!  I also die cut it with Premium White cardstock so that I could layer the white, with the lighter gray panels inset into it.  I used a yellow cardstock scrap to create the sunrise window at the top.

I die cut the birds & the branch using an add-on die set called Happy Together dies (available here on 1/9).  The branch is die cut from Sand Dunes cardstock and then stamped with Icing on the Cake ink which is the perfect color for the branch. The blue bird was stamped with Something Borrowed, Daydream & Juniper Mist ink and the pink bird was stamped with Be Mine, Party Dress & Rockin' Red inks.  I adhered the birds to the cards with dimensional tape.  I also added the tiny little heart with dimensional tape as well.

Always Welcome Here
The Sweet Home Wreath stamp set (with add-on dies available 1/9) has so many ways to use it.  Here I kept the wreath fairly simple and added in some florals in bright, spring colors.

I started by stamping the wreath in Mint to Be ink twice to make it fuller.  I then stamped & die cut the floral pieces with the add-on Sweet Home Wreath die set stamping them in Flirty Fuchsia, Limoncello and Party Dress inks.  The leaves are stamped with Lime Rickey ink, my most used green.  The sentiment is gorgeous and it is also in the Sweet Home Wreath stamp set.  The border at the bottom is stamped with an image in the Congratulations Sentiments stamp set, also included in the collection.  I popped that border up with foam tape.

For some added details I used the little dotted stamp in the Sweet Home Wreath stamp set randomly around the wreath. 

Keep Hopping!
