Week 14 - AWH Colour Creations Showcase - " Daffodil Delight"

 


This week Daffodil Delight!

Tonight we are highlighting a bright and bold colour. Tonight I have made 2 cards for you that can be made by Stamping and cutting some paper or just a little stepped up as I have done tonight with a few more tools from Stampin' Up!

Tasteful Touches, Love of Leaves, Good Morning Magnolia, Daffodil Delight, #colourcreationsshowcase, Rhapsody in craft, forever greenery, artistry bloom, Stampin' Up!, #loveitchopit

For my first card I was in a bit of a black mood. I have no idea why but I thought basic black would go fabulously with Daffodil delight and make it really pop.

The Artistry Bloom DSP is just so vibrant and has the splashes of Daffodil delight through it. It is a very fun pack of paper and looks fabulous against the black card base. I love this little magnolia and it just fits perfect on these stitched nested label dies and I have just received the Love of Leaves stamps so I had to use the sentiment it is just lovely. I coloured the magnolia with my stampin' blends.

To add a little more interest to my card I have dry embossed the DSP with the Greenery Embossing folder and I have cut the Daffodil delight and the sentiment layer with the stitched nested label dies. If you are just starting out on your Stampin' Up! Journey and you don't have these tools yet you can leave the Artistry bloom DSP no embossed as it is already so vibrant and you can cut the top panels any shape you like with your Paper Trimmer. 

Now for my second card I did a fancy fold and went all in with the Daffodil Delight card stock.

I kept with my black and yellow theme. Don't tell my kids as it should be black, white and red! (footy fans will understand 😂) This time I went with the fancy fold goody but oldie z-fold card and cut out some card with the stitch so sweetly before fussy cutting out the flower and then colouring with the stamping blends of daffodil delight and crumb cake. Again if you didn't have these dies yet and you are just starting your Stampin' Up journey your could make this card by cutting our the rectangles and stamping then putting the dies on your wish list!

To make the card base z-fold is quite easy. Card your A4 card in half for a normal card. Fold your card in half as for a normal card base and fold the front in half back on itself. Here you can see I have also put the Forever Greenery trim combo under the card front, you could leave this off as well or step your card up with the combo or ribbon of your choice. I do love ribbon.

As you can see there are many different parts to this card so I wanted to decorate all the sides. This is the one just behind the front.

On the inside of the card I have made a place to write and the forever greenery DSP is the part that you will see when the card is folded closed.

Lovely cards Sharon, I love how you’ve used just a splash of DD on your flowers

Rachel Palmieri said...

Those flowers are lovely with just a touch of daffodil delight, and I like the bold sentiment in yellow too.

CHRISTINE BLAIN said...

Daffodil Delight does "pop" beautifully against black. LOVE that you dry-embossed that gorgeous DSP on your first card, Sharon. The beautiful big sentiment on your second card looks fab, as does the ribbon. Lovely projects.

Cathy Proctor said...

Sharon your flowers really pop against the black in your first card and your fancy fold with the beautiful big ribbon on the second card is also very beautiful. Thank you for spreading some daffodil delight sunshine and inspiring us all with your cards.

Ros said...

The pop of colours on the flowers looks fabulous. I also manage to not get it just right and you've done a great job with it.

Kate Morgan said...

Great cards, Sharon. Embossing the patterned paper adds a wonderful effect and your next fancy fold card is beautifully done. I love the trim on this one too!

Theresa Gerrard said...

A couple of lovely cards Sharon. Yes Daffodil Delight does look good with black but I don't agree with you comments about red black and white tho! Great idea to emboss the DSP too

Kathryn Ruddick said...

One of my favourite colour combinations is Basic Black, Whisper White and Daffodil Delight.I LOVE your first card, it truly pops - and how fabulous is the sentiment on the 2nd card - I hardly ever stamp sentiments in any shade of yellow in case they are too hard to read, but that is perfect!

Sujatha said...

Love your colour combo, Sharon! I agree, black goes really well with the Daffodil Delight yellow!! Great job!!!

Michele Taylor said...

I really like the way you have used the dsp to highlight and complement the Daffodil Delight. The Forever Greenery piece in particular is an inspired choice. Both cards are lovely Sharon.

Diane Furniss said...

So many lovely card in Daffodil Delight this week I am overwhelmed by them all any your card or no exception Sharon, Love them all.

Tina said...

Fabulous cards! You are so right about black making the yellow really pop. It looks amazing.
