Stamp of Approval Lovely Notes is Coming

Have you heard the news?  The newest Stamp of Approval collection from Catherine Pooler is being released next week.  For the past few days Catherine has been sneak peeking items from the collection on her blog and today she showed the last item.  That means I can now share what I have been making with all of you!  Are you ready for some cards with lots of sneak peeks on them?


I liked this design so much, I made 3 cards.  First up I made a card for a family member who has a birthday next week.  Can you spot the SOA stamps I used on all 3 cards?


Stamps: Lovely Notes, Wonderful Wreath (Catherine Pooler Designs for Stamp of Approval Lovely Notes) Young at Heart (Casual Fridays Stamps)
Ink: Black (Staz-On) Cotton Candy, Ripe Raspberry (Color Box for My Favorite Things) Mint Julep (Hero Arts Mid Tone Shadow Ink) Wilted Violet (Distress)
Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White (Stampin' Up)
Accessories: Interlocking Die (Penny Black) Wonky Stitch Circle Stax (My Favorite Things)



Please don't ask me why I didn't use the birthday stamp set that is in the collection.  In all honesty this box is so packed with goodies I forgot there was a birthday set in it.  Don't worry though, I'll share a card using the birthday stamp during tomorrow's blog hop.  ;) 



Stamps: Lovely Notes, Lovely Lattice, Wonderful Wreath (Catherine Pooler Designs for Stamp of Approval Lovely Notes) 
Ink: Black (Staz-On) Cotton Candy, Ripe Raspberry (Color Box for My Favorite Things) Mint Julep (Hero Arts Mid Tone Shadow Ink) Wilted Violet (Distress)
Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White (Stampin' Up)
Accessories: Wonky Stitch Circle Stax (My Favorite Things)


My second card was made for a friend that has been such a blessing in my life.  I wanted to use SOA exclusively on this card, and remembered the Lovely Lattice background stamp that is included in the collection.  Isn't it pretty?  I wanted to see how the tone-on-tone would look using this stamp, but now I want to try this technique again and stamp it in black.  hmmm.... the ideas for these stamps just keep coming.  :)

 My last card is a combo of the first and second.  This one is for my mom.  She has been going through a difficult time with such grace & compassion.  I wanted to let her know how much I admire her.  <3  

So those are my cards.  Did you spot the new stamps that are in the Lovely Notes collection?  Come back tomorrow for blog hop, more new goodies, and a chance to win one of these boxes for yourself!  In the meantime check out Catherine's blog if you just can't wait for the hop to see the new lovelies.

Hi Heather .... your cards are truly gorgeous. First my eye was drawn to the background stamp and then to the focal point. I just love them. So soft and then topped off with the double stamped bow. Can't wait to CASE your inspiration.
