SOA Lovely Notes Collection Blog Hop
Welcome to Day Two of the Stamp of Approval Lovely Notes Blog Hops. Today myself and some of my favorite designers are sharing cards using the Stamp of Approval Lovely Notes Collection! The Stamp of Approval is an exclusive collection of stamps, dies and accessories hand picked by Catherine Pooler.
The Stamp of Approval Lovely Notes Collection will be released in just two days!! By the looks of the Wait List, it's going to sell out quickly. This is a limited collection that will only be available until they are sold out, so make sure that you are on the Wait List to be notified when it is available. 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!
Today I'm sharing two cards. The first features Butterfly Notes, Lovely Notes and Handpainted Thanks.
One of my favorite things about the Stamp of Approval Collections is how well the products in the collections work together. I love seeing how many ways I can use all of the goodies together! On this card I was able to use three different stamp sets, but by how well they work together they look like very well could have come from the same set.
I started this card with one of my favorite color combos...Aqua Mist, Ocean Tides & Wisteria Wonder with the stark contrast of black. I stamped the sentiment first and then the butterflies from the bottom left to top right, as if they are flying across the card. I filled in between the butterflies with the little flowers and leaves from the Lovely Flowers stamp set. Using a Copic Multiliner I colored the center of each flower. This is such a simple touch but makes a big difference in the overall design.
My next card features lots of new SOA goodness...Wonderful Wreath, Lovely Flowers, Butterfly Notes and the Lovely Flowers & Banners Dies, all products from Catherine Pooler Designs.
This is just another example of how wonderfully all of the Lovely Notes products works together. The images from the Lovely Flowers stamp set look great as a focal image and in the background like I've done here. The wreath stamped in a light ink really help make those flowers pop. The Banner was die cut and then trimmed down to fit my design. I love the versatility you can get by altering the die like that!
That's it from me today! It's time to start hopping along.
