Stamp of Approval - Beautiful World


I hope you have been enjoying the SOA Beautiful World collection peeks!  Today I'm featuring the Beautiful World stamp set that was designed for the collection by GinaK.


This card veers a bit from my typical style, but boy did I ever have fun creating it!  This photo really doesn't do this card justice.  I wish all of the little details showed. 

I started by heat embossing the large flourish image, then I sponged the background with Pink Pirouette and Little Piggy inks before sponging the edges with Antique Linen Distress ink.  I flicked the background with Shimmer and Old Gold Spray Mists.  Once dry, I lightly stamped one of the sentiments from Beautiful World along the edges.  The butterfly was embossed in gold right on the card and then again on vellum and added to the stamped panel.

Be sure to check in over the next few days for more peeks and the Stamp of Approval Beautiful World Blog Hop!  If you'd like to see more, pop on over to Catherine's blog where she is linking all of the projects daily.
Also, get on the Stamp of Approval Wait List so that you receive notification when the collection is available!

See you here tomorrow!

This is so gorgeous. This box of goodies I think is going to be my favorite. I love them all but this box is really something.

Ohh, Maureen, you've outdone yourself with this card. Wow! I can't wait to get the Beautiful World collection into my grubby little hands - and I hope this card is in the inspiration document we get.

Beautiful card. Can hardly wait for Wednesday for the kit to become available. Everyone's designs have been awesome. This will be my first kit purchase but it's a great one to be the first for me!

At first glance this seems to be a simple card, but oh my, the details in this card make it so enchanting! Love the colors as they are soft and peaceful evoking. I love the sentiment stamped around the edges of the card, and love how faint it is. The vellum/gold butterfly gives it that 3D effect like it is flying right off the card. Every thoughtful detail of this card is perfection!

I am hopefully getting one but it sure is a pain having to pay the difference from Canadian to American. Absolutely love the Young At Heart collection.

Even though you say the photo did not do it justice, it still looks AMAZING from here.
