Hi Stampers,

During December my Husband and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary.  I wanted to create a card for him that expressed how much he means to me and I knew I wanted to use the affection collection stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalogue so google images came to the rescue.

I spotted this idea from Heather Coopers website in British Columbia.  I changed it up a little in terms of the ribbon and background DSP pattern, but the layout and ink used are the same;


Heres what I used to create the card;

  • Stamps: Affection Collection and Clockworks (for the background)
  • Paper: Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla card stock; Natural Composition Specialty DSP
  • Inks:  Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso
  • Accessories: Antique Brad, Victorian Crochet Trim, Early Espresso Stitched grogsgrain ribbon
  • Other: Stamping Sponges, Very Vanilla Envelopes

The affection Collection stamp set will only be available untill the 31st of January so make sure you get it before its gone.  It’s a super versatile stamp set and looks great in so many colour combos.

Heres a link to a card I created last year using the same stamp set, but with a midnight muse and raspberry ripple colour combo;


As always I am on email at anna.mathieson@xtra.co.nz if you need any help with your crafting needs

Have a great week

Happy Stamp’n
