CCMC408 Love & Affection

This week is a soft and pretty color challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  Grab your stamps and play along!



Here’s mine using the new Love & Affection stamp set!


CCMC408 Love and Affection


  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Blushing Bride, folded in half.
  • On top is a 3-3/4 x 5 layer of So Saffron, embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.
  • A 1/2 x 4-1/4 strip of Blushing Bride (wow…it looks Pink Pirouette here in the photo, but not in real life!) is cut with flag ends and placed across the front.
  • The Lots of Label Framelit is cut from Mint Macaron and added to the center of the card.
  • The Love & Affection large and small flowers were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black on So Saffron and a scrap piece of Birthday Bouquet Designer Paper, hand cut, and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The leaves were stamped on Mint Macaron and cut out, then tucked under the flowers.
  • Sending a smile from the Love & Affection stamp set was stamped on a 1/2 x 3-1/2 strip of Whisper White, cut with flag ends and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensonals.
  • Perfect White Accents finish of the centers!

OK, make sure to check out the rest of the Challenge Team ideas using this beautiful color combination over on Create with Connie and Mary!

Oh my word! I’ve just had a good look at all the design team cards and see that actually I’ve been channelling you! Sorry, I hadn’t realised how like your card my card is. Needless to say, I really like your card! Funny how the same design can look so different a different arrangement of colours.

I love the polka dot flower! To me this is the star of the show and the rest are just fabulous accessories! Great card, Connie!
