{Stamp of Approval} Lovely Notes Collection Blog Hop: Day 1


Welcome to Day 1 of the Stamp of Approval Lovely Notes Collection Blog Hop! Be sure to comment on every participating post on all three days of the blog hop for your chance to win one of these amazing boxes! If this is your first time hearing about Stamp of Approval, this is an exclusive collection designed exclusively for this particular box. The stamps and dies in the Stamp of Approval Collections are brand new on the market and won’t be released for individual sale for several months.  I'm thrilled to be a part of this blog hop with several of my Neat & Tangled teammates. There are two Neat & Tangled products in the Lovely Notes Collection!


I have a lot to show you today so let's get started. My first card highlights the Wonderful Wreath stamp set. I stamped the wreath twice in two shades of light red and gold embossed the bow and "wonderful" sentiment directly on top.


The hanging heart and popped birds are also from the same set. The additional words forming the full sentiment are from the Butterfly Notes stamp set. To finish, I added some tiny pearls embellishments.


My second card showcases the Fill-in-the-Blank Birthday stamp set. "Friend" can be replaced with a host of other words, making this the perfect stamp for all your cardmaking needs!


The gorgeous flowers were stamped with the Lovely Flowers stamp set. The coordinating dies, as well as the large tag forming the window, are from the Lovely Flowers & Banners Dies set.


My final card uses both Neat & Tangled products from this collection, the Handpainted Thanks stamp set and the Concentric Circles Dies. I used the single frame to dry emboss the background, which was first heat embossed with the Lovely Lattice Background and then watercoloured around the edges of the panel.


The lovely butterflies are from the Butterfly Notes stamp set and the scalloped strip underneath the sentiment is another die from the Lovely Flowers & Banners Dies set.

Day 1 Hop List


Be sure to get on the Wait List for first dibs at this amazing collection. You will gain access one full day before public access. Not only do you get a box FULL of amazing stamps and dies, but you’ll get a downloadable PDF Project Guide (for free!) with tons of project tutorials!

Thanks so much for hopping with us! Be sure to join us again tomorrow and Monday, July 12th for more inspiration.
