Stamp of Approval Lovely Notes Blog Hop Day 1: “Note” Card

Share This!

LovelyNotes_BlogHop Welcome to our first blog hop!   Over the past few days, I've introduced you to each product that will be in the Lovely Notes Stamp of Approval Collection and from what I'm hearing, you all agree with me that this is the best one yet!

With SIX stamp sets and TWO die sets, you are going to be stamping for months and months and months with this collection.  I've barely scratched the surface with what you can do with these goodies.

The Dream Team and our guests have made some pretty incredible projects, so be sure to read through the post for the nitty gritty details, then hop along, check out the projects and comment to win.  (more details coming…)

But first….

Just a note2_ I love a good background stamp, and Lovely Lattice is no exception.

A bit of Clear Embossing, some Zig Marker action, and water and I am WOW'd every. Single. Time.

View the video and check it out:

I love love love love love…ok, you get the picture…this background stamp.  I could play with this in different colors and even different mediums for days.

Maybe even weeks.

And never get tired of it.

My problem always comes in when finishing it off a card like this with a fabulous background technique piece.

The Lovely Flowers and Banners Dies made that easy!  Just cut a short banner (this banner is looooong so you can use it to cover most of the card, or just a bit of it).

Stamp the greeting from Butterfly Notes, the music notes and that darling little birdie from Wonderful Wreath (after rockin' and rollin' him (her?) in Grape Jelly and Lilac Posies for a fun shaded look, of course!)…then fussy cut and pop it up on the card.

Just a note…with music notes?  I know…too fun!

Just a note WHAT IS the Stamp of Approval Lovely Notes Collection?

We have a little tradition (that's not really the norm) of showing you all the products in our collections in my videos.

We don't show the photos of the products until much later and we don't show them together.

Some of our stamping friends get so super excited about our collections, it's kinda like Christmas!!!  (I Agree!! It's like that for me, too!)

What's Christmas without surprises?  Right?  So we don't show everything together.

For those of you that DON'T want a surprise, no problem!  You can watch all of my videos during the preview to see everything that will be in your darling little box when it arrives on your doorstep!

Here are direct links to the preview day videos:

    Hi Catherine,
    Really like the lattice background stamp, I love the soft colours but can also see it done in darker tones, even perfect pearls for a mosaic effect.
    Thanks for the insperation
