Working with Stamps of Approval Kit #1

Greetings to all my fellow crafties!  During this weekend's World Card Making Day (weekend for me), I had the chance to relax and explore the beautiful stamps and stencils on the Stamps of Approval First Editions Kit.  I normally shy away from the more feminine orientated stamps with 'girlfriend' type sentiments, but with the holidays approaching soon and requests for some card sets, I realized this set is a blessing in disguise and will be perfect for the recipient to use.  Focusing on Eva's Favorite Flowers and the awesome circle stencil, here are some of my creations.  For those who have interest, the Second Edition Kit will be offered very soon.  You can visit here to be notified of the next kit.









The possibilities of these stamps are unlimited.  I will be using these for many projects.  Thank you Catherine Pooler for such an awesome kit!

Have a great day everyone and thanks for visiting!

  11. Beautiful work! I love the gradations of color! You are right, always look for the blessings in disguise. I get a card kit and stamp and die kit once per month. Sometimes they don't appeal to me. As a challenge I make myself go through my things once in a while and find a use for things I DON'T gravitate to. Most of the time I'm pleasantly surprised with what I come up with. :)
