Floral Friday – Love and Affection

Today I am starting a new series called Floral Friday which will showcase all things floral in the catalogue as I love flower stamps and am eager to add all the new floral sets to my collection. This week I’m focusing on simple cards and the Love and Affection stamps set which is fast becoming one of my favourites. Here is a picture of all four cards I made together

To embellish the card I just added sime of the Ruched Ribbon in Emerald Envy and the Watermelon Wonder Washi from the Affectionately Yours collection.

This time I went for an all-over stamped background and used the Decorative Label punch to add some pop to the sentiment. I think this was is actually my favourite of the four.

Again using the Laying Squares Framelits, just in a smaller size and finally

As you can see this stamp set has  huge scope for super simple quick cards, next time I pull this set out I’m hoping to be a little more adventurous!

Happy Crafting,
