CCMC405 Love & Affection

Yes!  I spy a NEW stamp set, In Color Cardstock, washi tape and designer paper!  The Thursday sketch challenge for Create with Connie and Mary was perfect for the new Love & Affection stamp set, Affectionately Yours Designer Paper and cool copper metallic Washi Tape!


Take a peak:


CCMC405 Love and Affection

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Flirty Flamingo Cardstock, folded in half.
  • On the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Crumb Cake, a 4 x 3-1/2 piece of Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Paper was added towards the left side.
  • A strip of copper Affectionately Yours Washi Tape was added to the right side of the DSP.  LOVE the copper metallic look!
  • The larger and smaller flowers in Love & Affection stamp set were stamped with Night of Navy Ink on Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight cardstock, then the leaves with Night of Navy Ink on Cucumber Crush, all were hand-cut.
  • The Tag was cut from Whisper White with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlet and the For You from Night of Navy using the same thinlet set.
  • The flowers were added to the tag with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then adhered to the front of the card.  A Perfect White Accent for the center is a finishing touch!

Ahhhh! I’m loving the new colors! I’m so excited they brought out another pink! It’s such fun! The new floral stamp is gonna be super popular as well, I think!

I love your card – it’s really bright and cheerful. I love the contrast of the DSP with the dark background and bright colours. It’s so much fun having new stuff to play with isn’t it? 🙂

Doesn’t the new DSP just make you think that you’re standing there looking at a field of flowers? Super excited to start using it! Wonderful showcase of some new things on the horizon!
