Affectionately Yours

Hi Crafters!

A few days ago, I made this sample card for a party I have on this weekend for the lovely Lauren. Lauren requested a baby card with little birds on it from the Made With Love stamp set. I have teamed the stamp set with the Affectionately Yours Washi Tape & Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP).

I have used Archival Basic Grey ink & I have used the Blender Pens to colour in the birds in Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron & Crumb Cake. The Daffodil Delight cardstock behind the sentiment has been cut out using the Tags & Labels framelits on the Big Shot with the Precision Plate. I have used the Project Life Corner Punch to round the corners of  the sentiment. The card base is from the Whisper White Notecards & Envelopes 20 pack, which is also available in Crumb Cake.

This card is also my entry to the Crazy Crafters Team Project Highlight & the Paper Players #295 Challenge:

You can see all of the Crazy Crafters' entries & vote for your favourites from 6:30pm AEST Friday 20th May here.

Today I've been working on some really cute cards using my off cuts from the preparation for Lauren's party. The Affectionately Yours suite products I have used include the Specialty Designer Series Paper, Washi Tape & Stamp Set. 

For the above set of cards, I have used Whisper White card bases. I find the Thick Whisper White is best for cards that you are not layering up. I have teamed the Affectionately Yours stamp set & washi tape with the Flower Shop stamp set & matching punch. I have used Archival Grey ink for the flowers & Crumb Cake for the sentiments. The brads are from my stash.

For the second lot of cards, I have used mostly Whisper White card bases & one Mint Macaron. I have used some Silver Glitter Paper cut into thin strips with tapered ends that I had left over from a previous party & I have layered some of the DSP with Mint Macaron cardstock. I have also used the splatter background stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.

I have entered this photo into the Mojo Monday #448 competition, specifically the card on the top right hand side:

And finally, I have a lone butterfly card using Pool Party ink & cardstock. The butterfly was cut out using the Bold Butterfly framelits on the Big Shot with the Precision Plate.
