Stamp of Approval - Lovely Notes Collection

It's almost time for the next Stamp of Approval release!  WOOHOO!

The Lovely Notes Collection releases on...

JULY 13TH!


If you haven't heard of the Stamp of Approval yet, you may be wondering what it is all about.  My friend Catherine Pooler has been working with top companies in the stamp industry (CAS-ual Fridays, SugarPea Designs & Neat & Tangled) to develop an exclusive collection of versatile stamps and supplies that will work together or separately to create many unique cards.  Along with the products in the box, you also receive a Project Guide giving you step-by-step instructions on how to create many, many cards using the collection.
Catherine has spent the past couple of days previewing some of the new products.  Today kicks off the first of three days of blog hops before the big release on Wednesday.   I'm not officially "on" today, but I've made a bunch of cards with the collection and I'm really excited to share them with you.

My card today uses The Lovely Flowers stamp set and Lovely Flowers & Banners Dies.


You all know I'm crazy about flowers!  The Lovely Flowers stamp set is quickly becoming a favorite of mine.  The images are whimsical and so much fun to create with.  You can use each of the images alone or you can layer the stamps and dies adding dimension and versatility.

I started my card by heat embossing the sentiment (Don't you love that sentiment?) on black cardstock.  I placed the sentiment on a white card base (without adhering it) and started stamping the flowers and leaves in shades of purple and green.  I also stamped and die cut a few of the smaller flower images on a white scrap paper and die cut them.  Once all of the stamping was done, I added the sentiment and flowers with foam tape.  I also stamped the polka dots on a white strip and adhered that to the bottom of the card base.  I finished the card with a sprinkling of sequins.

Like what you see?  

Make sure you sign up for the WAIT LIST so you get notification when the Lovely Notes collection is available!  

Also, pop on over to Catherine's blog where you can see her introduction to all of the release products as well as today's blog hop list!  (Leave comments, she has some boxes to giveaway!)


I'll be back tomorrow when I'm officially "on" the SOA blog hop ;)
