We are up to Daffodil Delight and I thoroughly enjoyed making a nice cheerful card with it.
Keen to see some more projects featuring this colour. There's a link down the bottom of this post.
I was inspired by a Janet Wakeland video to use some of our new Foil Edge Cards and Envelopes. (Page 11 of the Holiday Catalogue.) Don't they make a lovely base and an effortless silver trim there. I cut my Daffodil Delight cardstock to 4" x 5 1/4". Cut it a little smaller if you'd like more of the silver border to show through. The embossing folder is Swirls and Curls (pg 5.) This was the perfect time to grab out my Beautiful Day stamp set and give the butterfly a whirl. I embossed it with silver embossing powder then coloured it using my Stampin' Blends - Daffodil Delight and Pool Party pairs. This stamp set is a great one if you're just getting started with colouring. Nice big sections to colour - you can't go wrong.
I coloured some sections with the pale colour of the pair, then added a little bit of the darker shade - just plonked it on along the edge of the section. Go back over the join with the pale colour and it softens the edge.
I've given our new Chicken Wire Elements a whirl too. (Find them on page 43.) Nice for a little touch of silver. Just snip off the amount that you want or use the whole piece.
Got some time and love the colour Daffodil Delight - get a nice dose of yellow with a whiz around my teammates posts. Here's where you'll find the links: Catherine Proctor's Blog
We'll be back next week with the next colour on the list.
