Monday, June 05, 2017


Hello everyone! Welcome to the Day Two of Stamp of Approval Naturally Inspired Collection Blog Hops. If you have arrived here from Chrissie Tobas blog then you are right on track.

If you miss the hop kindly start again from HERE.

A little about Stamp of Approval or SOA:  Stamp of Approval is a hand picked, exclusive collection of products that were designed just for the box that releases quarterly. This box is full of stamping goodness and they sell out really quickly. So be sure to subscribe to the Wait List so you will be emailed when the collection goes on sale on June 7th.

Please head on over to Catherine Pooler’s website (the founder of Stamp of Approval) to sign up on the Waiting List, this is the best way to make sure you get YOUR Stamp of Approval box. Wait List members will be notified first through email when the box goes up for sale one hour before the collection is released to the general public! So make sure you sign up for the Waiting List so that you don’t miss out on your Stamp of Approval box!


The theme of our collection is NATURALLY INSPIRED so I am naturally inspired by Nature. I love beautiful and colorful leaves, flowers and birds. And I went with the water color technique! :)

I made several cards with this beautiful collection but today I will be showing you two cards and in the next coming days I will show you more! I will try to make more and more cards with this collection :)


This card features Birds of a Feather and Medallion Mix-up stamp sets.


inks used - rockin' red and midnight

I inked up the beautiful feather and spritzed some water and stamped repeatedly on the card base. Stamped the message on a die-cut circle and wrapped and tied a simple knot with white twine.


This card features Wild Garden, Simply the Best stamp sets and the Best Die.


I applied the same technique for this one also as mentioned in the above card. Die-cut the word best and sponged the ink at the bottom and adhered it onto the card base. Also stamped the sentiment beneath the die-cut as well.


Make sure to leave a comment on each blog because Catherine is giving away one of the Naturally Inspired Stamp of Approval collections for EACH day of the hops.   That is 3 boxes!  The more times you comment, the more chances you will have of to win! (If the winner has already purchased a box, they will be refunded!)

You've got until Thursday at 9:00AM EST to get those comments in. The winner will be announced on Catherine Pooler's blog!  Good luck and happy hopping!

  2. Wow! Such soft and beautiful looks. I wasn't sure about that feather until I saw your gorgeous watercolour version. So lovely! And the more I see those wild-flowers, the more appealing they are, too. Your second card looks like it was painted, not stamped. The colours are so true to life (your inspiration photo), as well. Fantastic inspiration, Deepti, I always leave your blog full of ideas to try, thank you!
