Stamp of Approval Winterhaven Blog Hop Day Two

Hi!
Welcome to day two of the blog hop! You should have arrived here from Ingrid's blog!


I wasn't sure I was ready for the holidays until I saw all of these goodies! Squee! Immediately, I was in the Christmas spirit! This Stamp of Approval Release is simply fabulous. What is Stamp of Approval you ask??! It's an amazing, exclusive collection that you want to get your hands on! The supplies that come in this box were created just for this release! And once they are gone, it will be months until they are available again.  More details (and the Wait List) are HERE.

I absolutely adore the Joy Wreath die.  It is so clean and simple, yet stunning at the same time.  To really make it pop, I die cut it three times in black, then once in white watercolor cardstock.  I added color using Catherine Pooler Inks (listed and linked below) and adhered them all together, making the black die cuts off just a tad, to make sure the main wreath really pops.


To create the next card, I used typing paper as a mask and I stamped the same two images of pine over and over again, in two different inks.


The JoyWreath die has one of the most beautiful script fonts ever! I just fell in love with it immediately.  And the poinsettia from 'Tis the Season is too much fun. 


Next up on the hop is Kimberly! In case you need it, the full list is here:
