Counting Blessings SOA Release Day

I said in my last post I would have a Counting Blessings Stamp of Approval release day post going up this evening at 6pm ET to coincide with the public launch of the collection. At the rate this collection is flying out the door to the wait list, it will probably sell out much sooner than that, so I’m sharing my post early. If you’re on the wait list and want this collection, I would recommend buying it NOW because it’s selling FAST.

UPDATE This collection is now SOLD OUT! If you missed out on purchasing one, definitely be sure to go through all three days of our blog hop and leave comments on everyone’s posts for a chance to win one of three collections which will be given away. Entries close on THURSDAY, August 17 at 9AM ET and the winners will be announced later that day on Catherine’s blog. You can find my posts with the lists of all the stops here:

For the card I’m sharing today, I used the Bloomin’ Bouquet stamp set from the collection. I also used the coordinating Bloomin’ Bouquet die set (available as an add-on) to cut out the images. The sentiment is also from the Bloomin’ Bouquet stamp set. Isn’t that font combination awesome? Love it!

For a bit of added texture, I layered an embossed panel behind the focal image. I still kept the very clean white on white background I wanted, but adding the embossing gives the card a bit more visual interest.

If you want to see even more inspiration, be sure to check out the blogs from Catherine and the rest of her Dream Team as well as the Guest Designers who joined us for this collection. Here’s the full list of everyone:

I really hope you’ve enjoying the past few days of the blog hop and now all of our release day inspiration. As you can see, the Counting Blessings collection is incredibly versatile and will be a wonderful addition to your stash for use all year long. Get yours today before they’re gone! If the collection does happen to sell out before you get one ordered, the products will be available again in a few months for individual purchase. However, you won’t get the discounted price available when purchasing it as the full collection and you won’t get the two free gifts which are included with this collection. So, I think getting the collection is definitely the way to go.

Until next time …
