I decided to challenge myself to creating cards in a colour that I wouldn't normally choose.
Today, it was yellow!
Here are the three cards...
This friendship card was made by cutting the strip-shaped floral Stampin' Up die (from the 'Ornate Borders' die set) from white and pale yellow cardstock. I used paper piecing to add colour variations to the die in white and dark egg yellow. A couple more die cut flowers from the same set were added on top. The frog is a stamp from an old magazine. It was stamped using distress oxide ink and highlighted by hand with a thin black marker. The sentiment is mounted on one pennant and one rectangle shaped card piece and is from the Stampin' Up 'Rare Blessings' stamp set. Nuvo pearl drops were added around the outskirts.
These little dragons are ultra cute! This is designed to be a baby card - for before or after the birth. I think the dragon stamps are from China. They were coloured with copic markers, keeping shadow on the left. The cloud die is from the 'Puffy cloud borders' set by lawn Fawn. Mulitple cuts were done and layered. A stitched circle die was used to cut the circle shapes. The sentiment stamps are from the Stampin' Up set 'New Wonders'.
The last one was made with 3 cuts of the Stampin' Up sunflower die and 1 cut of the single leaf from the 'Sunflowers die' set. One flower was cut in white and another cut and coloured yellow with Brusho ink powder (each centre was cut and Brusho inked too). The third flower was cut in half and added to the right side of the card. The Brusho ink colours used were Yellow, Light Brown and Black. Behind the flowers is a background cut with a regular stitched rectangle die and coloured with large bursts of yellow Brusho powder and lightly pounced with a brush. The sentiment comes from the Stampin' Up stamp set 'Little Ladybug'. It's strip supports a flower centre die cut, inked with brown distress oxide ink - and on top there's a lump of opaque range prills and a tiny sprinkle of black prills.
Let me know what you think!
