Affectionately Yours~

 Well HELLO! I got some time to blog for the first time in over a month! Life has been busy, it's always a good busy, but nonetheless, the days turn into weeks and then into months..Anyway, I won't waste time in getting to the post.  I have joined a few swaps online to get some great samples of the stuff from the NEW Stampin'UP! 2016-17 catalog.  The first swap was with Tami White and I signed up for 3 swaps in which I made 30 swaps and got back 30 different amazing cards!  This was one of my swaps that I made.  One of the perks of being a demonstrator is that we get to preorder from the new catalog and I immediatley fell in love with this stamp set called Layering Love and the Designer Series Paper Affectionately Yours.  It's so warm, yet, the colors are just great together.
 I wanted to use the words as the focal point because I just love this saying! So, I stamped it in Night of Navy ink and then stamped the little hearts that are in the set in Calypso Coral randomly.  I cut a solid butterfly from the Bold Butterfly Framelits in the DSP and then cut one from the detailed butterfly from Daffodil Delight and popped it on top.  I added a few Basic Rhinestones to the middle.
I added some Crushed Curry Baker's Twine down the side and punched out a Petite Petals from Calypso Coral card stock. I am enjoying just about everything from the new catalog, just wish my bank account had more in it..
Thanks for stopping!
