Love and Affection, Confetti Celebration, Affectionately Yours washi, Papercraft by Jennifer Frost, Artisan Design Team, Stampin Up

I had a lot of fun playing with the pretty Love and Affection stamp set for this sweet project today.  I've chosen to feature the brand new Flirty Flamingo tone for my main flowers, with a mix of old olive foliage and spray of little rich razzleberry and mint macaron blooms. 

I stamped the imagery on a piece of shimmery white cardstock.  Before watercolouring the pink flowers, I stamped the rich razzleberry centres and set them with clear embossing powder so they wouldn't bleed purple into the soft pink petals.

The layered stamping work is really the star of this design. I've gone with some simple touches to complete the card - a strip of coordinating Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape, a little bakers twine bow and a slim Mint Macaron border..

You might recognise the 'Happy Birthday' sentiment I've added to the mix from the new Confetti Celebration set.  I liked how the strong upper case lettering of this sentiment worked with the cursive Love and Affection 'sending a smile your way' font.

I hope you've enjoyed this card.  Thank you for stopping by!  Be sure to continue the hop by visiting fellow Aussie Artisan Jessica Williams. Her creations never disappoint!

  5. Was not thrilled with this set, but thought the outline stamps would be best with a watercolored look - and you have done it! This is probably my favorite card I have seen with this set - very pretty colors and nice, soft watercoloring! :-)
