I think most of us by now and in the throws of holiday paper crafting or at least thinking about it:) I whinced today when I realized Christmas is just a little over a month away! Don't get me wrong I love Christmas and all that it truly represents what I don't love is the undo stress I put on myself to get ready for it,lol. That being said the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue is full of amazing and inspiring projects for the Christmas season but there is also a set towards the back of the Catalogue that I think may get over looked, so today I thought I would share a few quick cards hilighting the Affection Collection Stamp set. Don't worry I will be back tomorrow with some Christmas card inspiration:)
Sometimes it's just nice to switch it up a little and create a square card. I started with a Whisper White base then layered on Basic Black and then another piece of Whisper White that I had scrored a squre into using the Simpy Scored Tool.
I then stamped the heart with wings image directly on the paper using Jet Black StazOn ink and then again on a scrap using Raspberry Ripple Ink and punched it out with the Small Heart Punch, then popped it up and added a Rhinestone Jewel. I also stamped the little banner image using the same colour on a scrap and cut it out.
Again this card was super quick and easy to create but I love the unexpected colour combo. I used Island Indigo, Rich Razzleberry, More Mustard and Crumb Cake. It was also fun to use the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack Template to create the hearts in the background. I actually pierced them then flipped the card stock over so that the "poked" holes were facing out (hope that makes sense:).
Have a great day!
