Introducing...

Tokens of Affection Graphic

Have you ever wondered what a token of affection looked like? How about a love tank... or a love machine? Well, wonder no more because Marcella Hawley has put these little pet names and terms of affection onto polymer so that we can all create whimsical and wonderful Valentines for folks of all ages! This set offers 4 darling main images plus 7 perfectly suited sentiments! Want to win this set? Just leave a comment on this post and you'll be in the running!


Moving on to my creation! I absolutely LOVE the little robot in this set. Not to share too much information, but when my hubby and I were first married, he used to sing to me... "I'm just a love Ma-Cheen... and I done work for na-buddy but chooo!" It was hysterical. So, when Marcella wanted to draw an actual love machine.. I was completely on board! :-)


I played along with Flourishes Timeless Tuesday's challenge to use some of my favorites. So, I picked one of my favorite border punches. I added one of my favorite edges -- a sewn edge -- and who could forget BLING! One of my favorite colors to create with is also RED!


So, after stamping my love machine on Flourishes Classic White Card Stock, I colored "her" up with Copic markers using the Cool Neutrals, Poppy and Sweet Pea Collections grouped by Flourishes. I added some glitter (although you can't see it) with the help of a Stardust Glitter Pen. Add some fun decorative paper, a silver leaf edge, a fun brad, some perky ribbon and a rhinestone and... done! Oh, I almost forgot, I used my Spellbinders Heart Die for my little sentiment (also a part of the set), sanding the embossed edges to reveal the paper's white core. Voila!


And, here's a peek at the inside of my card... love this combo! 

Wait until you see the design team's take on this set... trust me....their creations are too cute for words! Hop on over and see for yourself!
