Stamp of Approval - Lovely Notes Collection - Blog Hop!




Welcome to the final day of the Stamp of Approval Lovely Notes Collection Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Ingrid's blog!  If not, you'll want to start at the beginning of the hop, where all the fun starts, Catherine Pooler's blog!

Be sure to comment on every participating post on all three days of the blog hop for your chance to win one of these amazing boxes! If this is your first time hearing about Stamp of Approval, this is an exclusive collection designed exclusively for this particular box. The stamps and dies in the Stamp of Approval Collections are brand new on the market and won’t be released for individual sale for several months.  I'm thrilled to be a part of this blog hop with several of my Neat & Tangled teamies. There are two Neat & Tangled products in the Lovely Notes Collection!

Here's a peek at the cards that I made especially for today's hop!


My Thank You card is up first...I had so much fun designing this one!  This card features the Concentric Circles Dies (Neat & Tangled) along with Butterfly Notes.


The Thank you is so pretty...love that font and it was a perfect complement to the hip Concentric Circles Dies.  I ran the die through 3 times with white, green + yellow card stock and literally the green + yellow just fell into place.

If you've been following for me a while, you know that Green is my favorite color...one of my favorite color combos that I love to design with is Green + Yellow...throw in some pink and that makes me a happy crafter.

I couldn't wait to ink up Fill-in-the-Blank Birthday:


This set is amazing and a must have in any stamp collection.  It will cover all of your birthday card sentiment needs!  I knew that I wanted to team it up with the gorgeous Lovely Lattice Background.  I stamped the background in Peacock Feather Distress ink and quickly ran a wet paintbrush over it.  I love the watercolor softness that makes the sentiment POP.

Here's the complete hop listing:
