Stamp of Approval Lovely Notes Blog Hop



I'm in love with the new Stamp of Approval Lovely Notes collection.  Catherine asked us to make 2-5 cards, so I sat down to create and made 15. I was that inspired by this collection!!! And that only scratched the surface of what I want to create with these stamps & dies.  Yesterday I shared 3 cards that used the Wonderful Wreath and Lovely Lattice stamps.  Today I get to share a few of my rainbow cards and a video.  :)


Stamps: Butterfly Notes, Wonderful Wreath (Catherine Pooler Designs for SOA Lovely Notes Collection)
Ink: Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Wilted Violet (Distress)  Versamark
Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White (Stampin' Up)
Accessories: Concentric Circles Dies (Neat & Tangled for SOA Lovely Notes Collection) White Embossing Powder (Stampin' Up)




Stamps: Fill In the Blanks, Wonderful Wreath (Catherine Pooler Designs for SOA Lovely Notes Collection)
Ink: Black (Staz-On) Melon Mambo (Stampin' Up)  Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Wilted Violet (Distress)  
Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White (Stampin' Up)
Accessories: Concentric Circles Dies (Neat & Tangled for SOA Lovely Notes Collection)

I couldn't stop the rainbow and made another card with a completely different set of supplies from the Lovely Notes collection.   What can I say?  Rainbows just make me happy. :)  The center of my card uses the outer frame die from the concentric circles dies included in this collection.  I wanted it to be smaller than it was, so I die cut it a second time to cut the extra off the bottom.


Stamps: Fill in the Blanks, Lovely Lattice (Catherine Pooler Designs for Stamp of Approval Lovely Notes)
