Hello there friends! Thanks for taking time from your busy day to share a little Affection with us. Welcome to the Valley Isle, where the weather outside is…delightful!
I’m taking you forward today to springtime holidays. Affection Collection is well suited to Valentines Day, but I chose to focus on how well it works for bridal showers and weddings, and specifically how it works for small cards. These are 3″ squares, and I used my favorite color combo – Marina Mist and Lucky Limeade:
This image is easy to align with the ever-faithful Stamp-a-ma-jig. Punch the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes with the Modern Label punch, add a couple of pearls, and tie on some Lucky Limeade Bakers twine for a finishing touch.
For a little love note, how about a heart on wings?
We’ve gotten awfully spoiled with Framelits, but the truth is I actually pulled out my snips and cut this winged heart out BY HAND. Yes. Believe it. And didn’t I do a lovely job?
There’s some Vanilla Smooch Spritz , Crystal Effects, and yes, even Dazzling Diamonds to add some sparkle. I had the ceiling fan running (yes, it’s that warm) when I took the Dazzling Diamonds out of the secure vault and opened the jar — oopsie, that was exciting! Off with the fan and then a very careful drizzling of those Diamonds to keep the peace. Mr. Maui Stamper does not like glitter, and those Dazzling Diamonds have a mind of their own.
I think this is my favorite of these three little gift cards. The little flags are hand cut (but hint, hint, not for long!! The Spring Catalog is coming soon!) and attached with dimensionals. That little bit of Marina Mist 1/8″ taffeta is threaded through tiny 1/16″ holes and knotted, and I promise you it was much easier than it sounds. A little bit of bling finishes off this love note:
- Affection Collection in wood #127946 $29.95

This is a Holiday Catalog stamp set that will NOT carry forward, so you have until January 2, 2013 to make it yours.
