AWH Colour Creations - Wild Wheat

Wild Wheat is the fifth of our new In Colors and this is week 5 of the Art With Heart blog hop where Art With Heart Stampin' Up! team members share our Colour Creations featuring this week's colour.

Wild Wheat is a funny golden shade like dirty mustard and while it may seem like a difficult colour to use, it's perfect for the centres of flowers. Today I have used three of our new In Colours teamed together, just the way Stampin' Up! has in the Fresh as a Daisy Designer Series Paper pack.

First thing I did was grab out the paper and cut a couple of pieces for card fronts. I decided on simple Wild Wheat base cards as the paper already has a lot going on.

Then I cut a stack of flowers and leaves from the coordinating Cheerful Daisies Dies. I just cut them in Basic White card as I wanted to replicate the flowers on the paper and could just use a sponge dauber to add a touch of the ink to the flower centres and the leaves.

I usually spend a little bit of time at this stage arranging them on the card front to see what works best, and it is at this point I got out my trusty sponge daubers and sponged a small amount of Wild Wheat and Pebbled Path onto the flower centres and leaves.

I was going to mount the paper straight onto the Wild Wheat base card, which would have been fine, but the more I looked at it, the more I wanted to add the thinnest border of white around it to frame the images.

 That definitely makes it pop more and was worth doing. It adds a formal touch. I could have roughed up the edges of the Designer Series Paper for a more shabby chic look, but I was happy to go with the crisper finish.

I layered the die-cut daisies over the daisies on the printed paper - offsetting them a little so you can still see the layers underneath.

I chose the greeting stamp and label die also from the Cheerful Daisies Bundle to stamp and cut the sentiment piece and adhered most of the pieces with Stampin' Dimensionals or a spot of Tombow Liquid Glue.

Lovely cards Kathryn, the shading that you added to the daisies add an extra wow to your cards.

Catherine Proctor

Creating that thinnest of border of white around the DSP images really does make them pop and I also love the additional texture and dimension you've added with the sponge daubed die cut pieces. Gorgeous, Kathryn!!!


Oh, lovely! I agree, the thin white border of white around the DSP edges looks great. I love that you left the die-cut daisies white, and just added colour to the centres, Kathryn. You've showcased Wild Wheat beautifully.

Rachel Palmieri

These are great too Kathryn, it's like you and Tina are a team. Tina creating a lovely basic card, and you providing the stepped-up version - something for everyone!

Andrea Sargent

Two beautiful cards Kathryn. I love the way you have added the die cut and coloured daisies over the daisy DSP. Your addition of dimension and interest with the daisies is wonderful. I love the DSP mounted on Basic White - it gives a lovely lift to your design. Both so gorgeous. xxx

Theresa Gerrard

I also had that smae paper out on my desk for this week's creation but just couldnt come up with an idea other than just the paper, so I love how you have turned it into a 3D like effect and stepped it up. In fact this would be a good example of the 3 levels of crafter that SU! talks about.

Kate Morgan

Ooh, I love how you used that patterned paper and built it up with the die cut pieces on top! I agree that the small border behind the DSP really frames it. You've made Wild Wheat more appealing!

Rosa Leyden

Gorgeous cards Kathryn and the additional daisies with sponged centres and petals adhered to the DSP adds lovely dimension. I love the sentiment you have used too.

Christina Barnes

Gorgeous cards, Kathryn, I really like that you have left a lot of white to brighten the Wild Wheat, and the thin white border definitely lifts the card. Really lovely.

Caroline Louise Manwaring

Two fantastic birthday cards, Kathryn. I love your use of the daisy DSP and then adding dimension with the die cuts. Both cards are just lovely.
