The Perfect Reason: Stamp of Approval Blog Hop – Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of The Perfect Reason Stamp of Approval Blog Hop! You probably hopped on over from the crazy talented blog of Chrissie Tobas¬†. I’m always amazed at what she creates. The whole hop list is at the end, but first here are a few projects to showcase just how amazing this curated collection inspired me.

This collection has some incredible products in it that were a dream to create with. Let me show you just a few!

Project One: The Perfect Wreath

I love funky fun flowers and the Perfect Reason stamp set doesn’t disappoint. The flowers, foliage and greetings are not only easy to stamp with, but quirky & fun to work with. Oh, and it has a matching die set too!

Don’t you just love these shapes?!! And I LOVE little stamps like the teeny circle stamps – look at the Rockin Red ones – love that little detail in the middle. The greeting on this card is from the Everyday Mod stamp set.

The Perfect Reason Wreath

Inks: Tutti Frutti, Tiki Torch, Aquatini, Lime Rickey, Rockin Red, Midnight, Fiesta Blue

Project Two: Clean & Simple Mod

You will be able to create¬†several Clean & Simple projects with this collection too. Here is one of my favorite stamps from the¬†Everyday Mod stamp set – an AWESOME geometric set with great greetings. Seriously – I can’t STOP creating with it!

The greeting is from the You Did It stamp set – it’s a fun one, right?¬†I love the range in this sentiment stamp set – to see all the products in detail…be sure to check out Catherine’s blog right here.

TIP – If you want coordinating paper to go with your inks, just swipe the edge with your ink pad for a perfect look.

Colors: Aquatini, Tiara, Tiki Torch, Midnight (Catherine Pooler Designs)

Project Three: Stained Glass Blessing

If you’ve ever stopped by my blog, taken a class with me or seen one of my tutorials on YouTube – you KNOW I’m a stencil girl. And I LOVE to watercolor with vibrant colors – hello – Catherine Pooler Designs inks!!

I took all that goodness and wanted to make the Mod Squared Stencil shine – literally.

Josephs Coat Technique

Aren’t these colors just fabulous? We have a little stained Glass Josephs Coat Technique action going on here. Isn’t it amazing how the Midnight just transforms this piece into something really special?

My goal was to have my earth colors at the bottom going skyward to a celestial heaven. I hope that translates! The greetings are from the Everyday Mod Stamp Set.
