Stampin’ Up! Love & Affection for CTS #176

Happy Saturday!  I hope you are having a wonderful day. We have had beautiful weather in Georgia the past several days, but the humidity is creeping back up to match the thermometer’s rising!    My share for today is from Love & Affection from Stampin’ Up!  This is one of the new stamp sets that I shared with you last week.


Love & Affection


My sketch inspiration is from CAS(E) This Sketch # 176.  Don’t forget to have a look at all of the entries and join in the fun!  



Love & Affection is a photopolymer set, so it is really easy to stamp on the images.  I started by stamping the large flower in Versa Mark ink onto Watermelon Wonder, Daffodil Delight and Mint Macaron, then sprinkled them with Copper Embossing powder and heated them till shiny.  Once they cooled, I fussy cut them, and stamped the leaves in Cucumber Crush.  They are heat embossed in Copper and fussy cut also.


Love & Affection


I punched a panel of Watermelon Wonder with the Banner Triple Punch, inked the sentiment with Versa Mark and used the Copper Embossing powder.  With all of those flowers on the card, I just had to create a butterfly-so I pulled out the Papillon Potpourri stamp set and yes, once again, used that wonderful new Copper Embossing Powder!  The butterfly is also fussy cut.


Love & Affection


The Affectionately Yours DSP pairs with Love & Affection so nicely!  I cut a panel and framed it with Night of Navy, then popped it onto the Crumb Cake card base with dimensionals, then glued the banner down and arranged the flowers, leaves and butterfly onto the front with dimensionals also.  

If you peek closely, you will see a strip of Affectionately Yours DSP on the inside Crumb Cake panel that was snailed to the Crumb Cake base, leaving lots of room to write a note to the recipient.  

Card stock cuts in inches and products used for my Love & Affection card will be at the end of the post.

Stampin’ Up! Papillon Potpourri & 2016-2018 In Colors

Happy Saturday!  Hope it’s a stamping Saturday for all of you stampers out there.   Today is the perfect day for stamping where I live because it looks like rain-and I don’t feel like getting soaked.  So, stamp it is!  My share today is using Papillon Potpourri with some of the new In-Colors and a new stamp set from the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog, Thoughtful Banners.


Papillon Potpourri


This was another really quick and easy card, even though I used 4 different stamp sets!  I started with Gorgeous Grunge for the background for my butterflies.  I used Sweet Sugarplum and Flirty Flamingo  ink, (both new In-Colors) on my Whisper White panel to break up the white space. 

Papillon Potpourri

Next, I stamped the butterflies from Papillon Potpourri, in Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum and Peekaboo Peach. I punched them out with the Elegant Butterfly punch and popped them on the Whisper White panel with dimensionals. The banner is from the new Thoughtful Banners Stamp set, and is stamped in Sweet Sugarplum ink, then punched out with the new Duet Banner punch. This punch may be bought as a bundle with the Thoughtful Banners stamps, and you save 10% !  The banner was also attached with dimensionals.

Papillon Potpourri

The art panel was then popped onto the Sweet Sugarplum card base with dimensionals and I added a few Rhinestone Jewels for some bling.
Papillon Potpourri


I used the sentiment from Suite Sayings and stamped it in Sweet Sugarplum, then added another butterfly image from Papillon Potpourri in the corner.

Papillon Potpourri is a great stamp set to add to your collection because butterflies can be added to almost any card!
