Welcome to my ABC Color Series! Stampin’ Up! offers so many great color choices! I love to combine different colors and patterns and hope to inspire you with some fun color combinations throughout this series. Today’s projects feature Daffodil Delight. This color has been around for awhile, probably because it is a bright cheery color that pairs well with many different colors.
One of my favorite color combinations is yellow with black & white. It’s a classic color combo and you can add just about any other color with it for an added pop! I created these thank you cards to send to my customers this month.
The daisies are from the Cheerful Daisies Bundle and certainly live up to their name. I stamped the outline in Memento Black Ink and added the Daffodil Delight in the center. I cut them out with the coordinating Dies and added an extra pop of color with the stems die cut in Granny Apple Green. I love the black & white gingham ribbon.
I always try to conserve my Designer Series Paper. I cut the pieces 2 x 3 (so I could get 6 cards from each piece of 6×6 DSP.) Then I cut each 2 x 3 piece in half so it measures 2 x 1 1/2 and adhered them to the sides of the Basic White Note Card. (*Use your grid paper to make sure to line them up straight.) The gap in the middle will be covered when you add the 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 layer with the daisy & ribbon.
I adhered the layer piece and the daisy with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment is from Go To Greetings. (Another stamp set that lives up to it’s name!) This is such a fun card!
I also love to pair Daffodil Delight with gray and white. My next project uses the Artistic Dies and a Smoky Slate card base.
I love to add a little texture to my projects and the Fern 3D embossing folder did just that for this clean & simple card. I love the sentiment from the Apple Harvest Stamp set!
The Artistic Dies are so versatile and can be used on their own for many different occasions! This die could be used for a birthday, wedding, anniversary, or sympathy card. Works great for vertical or horizontal cards.
