Like, You Have No Idea!


So have you heard?  Have you heard the news???  Today I’m sharing the newest thing to hit the stamping and card making industry… meet “Stamp of Approval” by Catherine Pooler!

This little box contains an awful lot of cool sight unseen crafty items by some of the fabulous industry favs and endless hours of creating fun.  It has many dies. It has embellishments.  It has stamp sets and it even has a stencil and it’s all for EVERYONE!  To find out more, please visit HERE.

Today I’m sharing the first card I made using this fun box of goodies and this card doesn’t even touch all of the fun things included in the beautiful little box.

I began by creating a mask using one of the sweet little tag dies and then I stamped all the fun little leaves and blooms all around the edges.  To create the sentiment, I used the sweet “Love Ya” die and stamped sentiment along with some fun popped-up die cut flowers.


To check out some more “Stamp of Approval” creations, please visit these lovely ladies for more inspiration today:

I hope you have a ball checking out all this awesome box has to offer!  These boxes go on sale on VERY SOON and are in limited numbers so make sure to orders yours early.

Introducing… So Grateful!

Today is our final day of our fabulous Power Poppy reveal! Today’s new stamp contains everything you need to send out stampy creations to those that mean the most to you… your family and friends!  I know we all have those people in our lives that mean the world to us and now you’ll have a stamp set to use to let them know how much you appreciate them!

Introducing… “So Grateful”!




As soon as I saw the large Dahlia in the beautiful bouquet in this stamp set, I knew I had to make a bold and bright statement with it…


I even managed to add some dimension to the large orange Dahlia… I paper pieced it and added some Olba glue underneath the pieces to help hold them up.  This image is perfect for this technique.

 Now… check out what the rest of the Bloom Brigade has in store for you...

Introducing… Well Played!

Well all you retro-lovin’ stamp fans, today’s new clear stamp reveal is right up your alley!  Today’s Day 2 of Power Poppy’s stamp reveal and do we have a humdinger for you today!

Without further adieu, introducing… “Well Played”!

This groovy set features some equipment that some of us haven’t seen since I was a teenager or younger.  I’m sure if you showed some of the fun images on this stamp set to your young children or grandchildren, thy wouldn’t even know what they were!!!  Scary huh!?!?

So I went a little retro with my card and created a fun water colour rainbow effect to put my pencil coloured image on to!  I just think it’s rockin’ if I do say so myself!

I added some Glaze Pen to some of the details of the record player for a little bit of shine…

Now… check out what the Bloom Brigade designer’s have in store for you...
