AWH Colour Creations - Daffodil Delight

This week's Art With Heart team Colour Creation Showcase is one of my favourite colours!

We are focusing on Daffodil Delight, which is simply just a pure bright yellow.  It is perfect for colour combinations incorporating other primary colours because on the colour wheel it is the perfect yellow. 

Colour Creations Showcase

Daffodil Delight sings of sunshine to me, and since we have just slid sideways into spring and have been having some lovely sunshine (despite the pretty crook wind), I really wanted to make some sunshiney happy cards.

Under My Umbrella Stampin Up card (1)

I selected the Under My Umbrella stamp set and Umbrella Builder Punch, and had some very relaxing time colouring the images with some of our lovely bright Stampin' Blends - the alcohol markers blend so beautifully to give your coloured images a 3D look.

For this first card I stamped the Buffalo Check background stamp with Daffodil Delight ink for one of the layers mounted on Daffodil Delight card stock.  The white layer is cut with the largest scallop rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly die set and randomly stamped with the rain drops stamp in Balmy Blue ink.

The second card has squares cut from the Stitched Shapes Dies, and even though you can't see it in this photo, the white square is also embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder. I meant to add some of the yellow adhesive sequins from the Box of Sunshine Paper Pumpkin kit but forgot at the last minute.

The raindrops are stamped directly onto the base card with Daffodil Delight ink.

All of the layers are popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals and I have used a couple of Mini Glue Dots just to secure some of the flower bunches a bit more.

Hello Sunshine is inked with Poppy Parade ink. Don't you just love this cheerful, happy, fresh colour combination? It's really improved my mood today!

Gorgeous, happy, sunshiney cards Kathryn. How good is it, that Spring is in the air? The pleasure I get from line-dried washing (especially sheets!) is enormous! I especially love your first card, as I'm a sucker for gingham and scalloped stitched rectangles. :) You've put together all the sweet elements so beautifully on both cards.

Kathryn your cards screams spring to me - but in a very feminine and beautiful way. I nearly used this bundle too but glad I didn't as you've done such an amazing job with it. Thank you for spreading some daffodil delight sunshine and inspiring us all with your card.

Oh Kathryn, these cards are divine! They are so Spring, and happy, bright and cheery. I just love them and your colouring is perfection!

Kathryn both of your cards are lovely but I especially love the first one and that gingham background just looks great. I've been on the fence about that bundle ever since it came out but you may have just managed to convince me!
