I love how this kit includes so many fun things to work with: a die, a mini stencil, motif resist papers, mini ink cubes….so many options for one kit!SSS-August Card KitFor my background I used one of the coolest little Motif resist papers by Tim Holtz that come in the kit. I blended in Chipped Sapphire, which also comes in the kit, Mermaid Lagoon and Cracked Pistachio to create this fun hexagon pattern. I also flicked some water using my Mini Mister.
SSS-August Card KitFor the star, I blended Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade & Picked Raspberry onto some Neenah Solar White cardstock.

Hi there! Today I’m excited to be a part of a fun blog hop for Stamp of Approval as they showcase their latest Lovely Notes Collection.SOA Blog hopStamp of Approval is an exclusive collection of products (stamps and dies) that work fabulously together, but they’ll also work incredibly well with the supplies you already own.

Stamp of Approval-Lovely Notes collectionMy first project features the Concentric Circles Dies & Handpainted Thanks. Both were designed by Neat & Tangled for Stamp of Approval. I created a mask using the Concentric Circles die and blended in several distress inks. I also embossed a coordinating sentiment from the Butterfly Notes stamp set that is also in the collection.
Stamp of Approval-Lovely Notes collectionThis next project features the Lovely Lattice Background, which I embossed in clear and blended distress inks over top. This gorgeous birthday sentiment is from Fill in the Blanks.
Stamp of Approval-Lovely Notes collectionI created a shaker window using the Lovely Flowers & Banners Dies. I partially die cut the top and bottom of my shaker window to get that pretty scalloped border on both the top and bottom.
Stamp of Approval-Lovely Notes collectionMy final project features the Wonderful Wreath stamp set as well as Fill in the Blanks. All of the stamps & dies that I have used on all three of my projects today are included in the Lovely Notes Collection.
Stamp of Approval-Lovely Notes collectionI embossed the music staffs in the background and blended Antique Linen over top as well as splattering a little black & white watercolor paint. The wreath was fussy cut with a silk ribbon tied to the top.Stamp of Approval-Lovely Notes collectionGIVEAWAY!!
