Affection Collection


I keep hearing the Affection Collection stamp set referred to as the Valentines stamp set in the Holiday Catalogue.  And it would be a great set for making Valentines card for your loved ones but I think it is so much more than just a heartsy valentines set. 


I was participating in a swap with my Dreaming About Rubber Stamps Team Members and challenged myself to use the Affection Collection Stamp set for a card that was not pink or red or had hearts. So here it is. What do you think?

Since I needed to make quite a few cards I wanted to keep it simple but still show off some of the great new Holiday catalogue products.  To keep the stamping easy, I used only one ink colour, Early Espresso and only two card colours, Early Espresso and Bashful Blue in addition to Very Vanilla for the card itself.


The Brushed Bronze designer buttons and Crochet Trim fit right into my colour scheme. The only other additions needed to create this card were the Window Frame Framelits and Lacy Brocade embossing folder for the Big Shot. Clean and simple and quick to make – the perfect swap card!

Brushed Bronze Buttons  

  I love the look of these new Brushed Bronze Designer Buttons in the Holiday Catalogue on page 32.They look great on their own or you can add some ribbon to the top with a mini glue dot like I did.
