Affection Collection Love

Stampin' Up! Affection Collection Stamp Set Card Sample

Well, the Christmas season is over and New Year's Eve is practically here. Sniff, Sniff. There are only a zillion holiday projects I didn't get to this year. Again. Sound familiar? Well, fear not, crafty friends ... Valentine's Day is right around the corner and it's such a fun event to create for.

I wanted to play a little more with the Affection Collection stamp set from the Holiday Catalog, which will only be available through January 2nd. The stamps in this set are perfect for layering or using as stand alone images, as I've done with this very simple "LOVE" card.

The Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack (also from the Holiday Catalog) has quite a few patterned papers perfect for upcoming occasions such as Valentine's Day, birthdays or Spring cards. The design of this Cherry Cobbler print coordinates perfectly with the "love" image from the stamp set.

I decked out the paper with a Cherry Cobbler scallop trim border and added a pretty bow using Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon.

Stampin' Up! Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies

The "love" image is a custom fit for one of the accent pieces in the Apothecary Accents Framelits collection. Love that! I added Rhinestone Basic Jewels colored with a red Sharpie pen, then simply mounted the piece on a layer of Cherry Cobbler card stock.

It's clean and simple, and it's easy to make ... perfect for a quick little crafty time pick-me-up!
