Stamp of Approval - Tropically Yours!

Welcome to Day 1 of "Tropically Yours" Stamp of Approval Collection Blog Hop!

If you are new to Stamp of Approval... here's what's its all about!

Stamp of Approval is a box filled with a special collection of stamps and dies just for you!  All of the items in the box can be mixed and matched together and are designed to do so. Accompanied by your favorite ink, this box makes a great gift too!  I would suggest Catherine's own ink line, found here.

This lovely box of creative goodies comes straight to your mailbox but you have to order it quickly as it tends to sell out within the first 12 - 18 hours!  All the products are brand new and never been seen before.  The individual items wouldn’t be available in the shop until much, much later.   

To get on the Wait List to receive your "ready for purchase" email, click here!  You are not obligated to purchase; it’s just a reminder that it’s available for purchase in the store. If you are a member of StampNation, you will be able to shop the day before the public release date.  Just one of the perks of being a member! :) 
 
Now let's get to sharing some fun creations made using the contents of "Tropically Yours" Collection.

One of my personal favorites made entirely using this collection is a fun box type card…
Aren’t those little flamingos adorable!!?!?! It features a few of the stamps, dies and add-on dies from this collection; Stand Tall and coordinating dies, Leave Me in Paradise and their coordinating dies, Good Vibes Borders and Fearless Pursuits.

Here’s another angle to see a little bit more of the back ground of the card.

Next I created a fairly simple card with a great sentiment.
For the sentiment I did a little stamp surgery and cut the top off of the long sentiment and just used the beginning of the quote instead.  Aren't those hexagon die cuts cool.... they're known as the Cabana Tile Dies - also including in the collection!!!

Don't forget to grab the new color of CP ink too... it's gorgeous and it's called Coral Cabana!! Now... it's NOT included in the collection but will be available as an add-on product.  Don't forget to check out all the dies that coordinate with this collection too.

Now, take a gander at all the amazing things that my fellow designers have created with this collection...

  28. Your Be Fearless card is gorgeous! I love how you created depth using the ink blending on the stamps! I've never cut my stamps apart, instead masking off the part I don't want to use. I'm wondering if you have any issues using the whole stamp once you've surgically altered it?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hi Christine! I have never had any issues with a stamp after I've cut it. I try and make clean cuts and because it's a sticky product, the 2 pieces automatically just stick right back together to use as a whole. I do stamp surgery all the time!!
