The weather is very depressing here in the UK at the moment, wet and cold and not at all like June. So to cheer myself up I've been playing with the new Love and Affection stamp set. This is such a pretty set with 16 polymer stamps and three great Sentiments. I've done two types of cards - one quite plain and simple the other a little bit over the top. I think my favourite is the clean and simple one below.
I just used two of the stamps out of the set for this card and two colours Pear Pizazz and Watermelon Wonder. I love these two together.
I'm putting this card in for two challenges this week:
Watercooler Wednesday - which is asking for Clean and Simple Summer and
Case this Sketch challenge which gave us the following sketch to work with. Click on the sketch to be taken to their Challenge Blog.
My second card uses the same colour ways but I've added some Designer Series Paper in Watermelon Wonder and stamped some of the Flower stamps on to it. These were then cut out and fixed on with dimensionals and some basic rhinestones added to the middle.
I've used a few more of the leaves and flower stamps from this set also. This card was also supposed to be for the Case this Sketch but then I realised I'd covered too much of the paper so I started again.
This will be my last post for a while probably as I'm off on holiday on Saturday - can't wait for some sunshine. I'm off to gorgeous Tuscany - I've never been before so I'm so looking forward to it. Hubby and I plan to visit Florence when we are there, maybe a vineyard or two! We are staying on an organic olive oil farm so sounds wonderful. I'm tempted by the wonderful Tuscan Vineyard stamp set we have in the new catalogue. I will see what I think when I get back.
