Stamp of Approval Lovely Notes Blog Hop Day 3: Flowers Cards

Share This!

LovelyNotes_BlogHop Welcome to our final Blog Hop celebration for the Lovely Notes Stamp of Approval Collection.

It’s been an exciting week, right?  For this release, we had three days of videos introducing you to the different products in the collection.  Then, we had three days of blog hops.  (Usually we have one big day with lots of stops.)

Which do you prefer?  Several hops with fewer blogs to visit?  Or one big, giant hop?  Leave me a comment and let me know!

Lovely Flowers Background-1 I’ve got a quick and fairly easy couple of cards to show you, then it’s on with the hop.  I know you’re anxious to see more projects with this amazing collection!

I’m usually a bright, saturated color, rainbow sorta gal, but this muted color palette is makin’ me pretty happy right now!  When you stamp a full piece of cardstock, I love that there are many ways to use it.  You can also try cutting a circle out of the center and using the negative on one card and the circe on another.

How would YOU use this piece of stamped awesomeness?
Lovely Flowers Background A similar design with brighter colors.  Which do you prefer?

Thank you kindness

    Yay…I was on the wait list and managed to order this wonderful collection. I’m so happy I could burst. Now I can go to bed here in Australia and my hubby will be pleased….not sure he will be about me spending more money on craft. :)). Men sometimes just don’t understand.
    Thank you Catherine for another winner collection. Happy week

  • Fran Weinberg July 13, 2016, 10:12 am

    I set my alarm, and my box was ordered at 9:05 am. My PDF has already arrived. So excited! Now waiting for the box to arrive…………………………

  • Barbara S July 13, 2016, 10:13 am

    I love flowers and especially like what you did with those cards. Great idea to stamp on full sheet and then use it for a couple of cards. A big timesaver.

  • KT Fit Kitty July 13, 2016, 10:39 am

    Your cards are so beautiful! I LOVE these floral stamps! Such gorgeous patterns you created with stamping! This SOA collection is AWESOME!

  • Arianna Barbara July 13, 2016, 11:17 am

    Wow! Great hop! Beautiful cards!

  • Sherry July 13, 2016, 11:21 am

    What great cards! – and so fast and simple. Just love it. (By the way, thanks for telling us how to get to comment section- I was not able to leave some comments before because I couldn’t figure it out!) Awesome!, as usual.

  • Doris Dieterle July 13, 2016, 11:50 am

    Order my stamps today, can ‘t wait to get te
    Hem. Thanks

  • Diann July 13, 2016, 12:22 pm

    What a fun set to work with! Beautiful cards! :)

  • JoAnn K Delery July 13, 2016, 12:26 pm

    love the design and color choices.

  • Julie July 13, 2016, 3:12 pm

    While I love blog hops, I prefer the smaller hops. A lot of times when there is a big hop I have to pick and choose who I can go “check out” because we all know the busy world we live and I only allow myself so much computer time…..I really need to get things done around the house too :-) Have a great day! PS – Love your cards!

  • Carla July 13, 2016, 3:50 pm

    After the BG stamp the Lovely Florals would be my next fave item in the SOA Box. Thanks for sharing. Lots of ideas for one, who isn’t able to get the kit, to do with what they currently have in their stash. THANKS!

  • Jaana July 13, 2016, 4:23 pm

    I only just stumbled across this. What a great collection.

  • Barbara Green July 13, 2016, 4:23 pm

    Love these cards. This release is really nice.

  • Erika DeJesus July 13, 2016, 4:43 pm

    There have been SO many card techniques/varieties and ideas! Its overwhelming since I can’t try any of it yet! Just bought the kit this morning! What are the chances that it’ll be waiting for me when I get home tonight? I know…I know…..I have to be patient! Great job ALL!!!

  • Barbara Green July 13, 2016, 5:04 pm

    Just thought I would come back and let you know how impressed I am with the cards your friends made for the blog hop. I really enjoyed going thru them.

  • Linda S. July 13, 2016, 5:34 pm

    Great idea about making two cards out of one stamped piece! Love the colors!

  • Linda Anderson July 13, 2016, 6:02 pm

    This SOA box has so much to play with ! Very pretty cards. Love that you got 2 out of 1 panel. Thanks for the inspiration.

  • Marilyn McPherson July 13, 2016, 6:38 pm

    Beautiful card love the stamps and your cards

  • Sue Bouch July 13, 2016, 7:02 pm

    I like the different hops with more than one card example on them… Commenting is sometimes difficult on some of the stops depending on internet connection speed and the quantity of comments trying to win a free collection. I enjoy your videos and your ability to be semi-OCD but able to embrace imperfections. The recipient will see the love that inspired the creation not the slightly uncentered/misplaced sentiment/accent. Thanks and gave a great day!

  • Buffy July 13, 2016, 7:08 pm

    That little scallop die is so cute! Love flower stamps!

  • Debbie P July 13, 2016, 7:24 pm

    Love all the cards. Can,t wait to get my lovely notes collection.

  • Viv N July 13, 2016, 9:51 pm

    Love the note cards! Beautiful color combinations and the flowers are so cute

  • Tina July 13, 2016, 11:15 pm

    I love this card. What brand of inks are you using they are so pretty.

  • Cheryl (angelbug56) July 13, 2016, 11:50 pm

    I love how you used your stamps to make a beautiful background paper. I need to start doing that. You inspire me to create and I thank you for that. God bless you.

  • Cati Ballard July 14, 2016, 12:12 am

    Love the background! Crossing my fingers and hoping to win!

  • Cati Ballard July 14, 2016, 12:13 am

    Love the background and beautiful colors! Love how the stamp set offers so many neat ways to use it!

  • Mary Beth Krakowski July 14, 2016, 1:40 am

    What great simple cards, love the background stamping.

  • Rose July 14, 2016, 12:57 pm

    Love all of your flower cards. Great idea cutting the one apart and making two cards. I definitely will copy that.

  • Michelle Lotan July 14, 2016, 10:03 pm

    Simple and elegant, love it. Based on all your videos and photos, this SOA kit looks like a winner!

  • Sheri Waddell July 20, 2016, 9:06 pm
