Love is in the Air Stamp of Approval Blog Hop Day 1 & Giveaway!


Hi everyone!  Welcome to Day 1 of the Love is in the Air SOA Collection Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from Justine Hovey's blog.  The complete list is below if you get lost along the way.

The collection goes up for sale on Tuesday, January 9th at 9am to those on the Wait List.
Ordering will then be open of the public (6pm EST) if the collection hasn't sold out already.  

StampNation members that are on the Wait List will be notified first (a little perk of being a member!) and then the rest of the Wait List will be contacted!

**The box is only available while supplies last.**
Make sure that you are on the >> Wait List << to be notified when it is available!

The box contains products that can be used together to create many different cards.  They can also be used along with products you already have in your stash!  Awesome!!!  I have had a blast creating cards using this collection.  AND included in this collection is a NEW Mystery Ink!!  Any guesses as to what color it may be??  



My first card features Love is in the Air & Bon Voyage stamp sets,


I am in love with this "arrow" stamp with the hearts on the ends.  Stamping it with all the Spa Ink colors was the perfect combination!  Along with a white heat embossed sentiment from the Bon Voyage stamp set!  I could see recreating this card with so many different color combinations and maybe even switching out the sentiment to a Happy Birthday that you have in your stash or the Miss you sentiment that also comes in the stamp set.  

My second card features the Love is in the Air stamp set/coordinating dies, the Postage Stamp dies and  the Happiness Enclosed stamp set for the coordinating envelope.


I wanted my card to showcase the adorable cloud die and raindrops from the Love is in the Air stamp set and dies.  I couldn't resist stamping the rain drops in rainbow order using the Party Collection of inks.  The Hugs & Kisses sentiment was stamped over the raindrops using Midnight Ink.  To add some interest to my card, I added some strips of the biggest postage stamp die to the top and bottom of my stamped panel.  I also added the stitching to the top and bottom using the rectangle stitching dies that also come in the die set.  To add some sparkle to the cloud I smooshed it in Versamark ink and added some Wanderlust embossing glitter and heat set it.  It is so sparkly in real life.

Here's a close-up to show the sparkle on the cloud.



AND look at the coordinating envelope!  I love the sentiments that can be stamped on the back of your envelopes.  This one says "long live snail mail".  The heart image also comes in the set.


It's time now to start hopping along, BUT before you go, make sure you leave comments on each stop along the way for your chance to win!  Your next stop on the hop is Karen!

One winner will be chosen at random from EACH day's comments and announced on January 10th on Catherine's blog.  The winners will win their box and if you have already purchased it, you will be issued a Gift Certificate worth $100 towards a future purchase.

Kristie Goulet - *you are here
Karen Baker - *go here next

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
