Colour Creations - So Saffron
Hi Everyone,
Wow here we are at week 47, this really is the pointy end of the Colour Creations Blog-Hop. I for one will be sad to see it end. I really have enjoyed making cards in every colour we have and I have loved seeing all the creations from all the other Hoppers as well. We really have had some beautiful cards and I know some of us have found some colours harder to work with than others myself included.
This week our colour is "So Saffron" and being Mother's day here in Australia on the 12th May 2019 I thought I would make a Mother's Day card, I used the Apron of Love stamp set and dies which are sadly retiring on the 3rd June 2019 for my card.
I used the Garden Impression DSP for my Apron and edging along with my oven mitt and I edged the apron in tranquil tide ink to match the strings and pocket and mounted this onto a So Saffron piece of card. I cut out the tools and when I dropped them onto my card the landed just as I have them glued and I thought they just looked prefect scattered down the right-hand side. I then stamped Happy Mother's Day using the White ink pad and place clear gem stones on the front to finish it off.
I only thing I didn't like about the stamp set is it says "MOM" not "MUM" so using a cotton tip I wiped out the top of the O to make it into a U before stamping and cutting out the oven mitt I placed this on to a foam pad before adding this to the front of the card.
I then cut out 2 more mitts and added them to the inside of the card with hearts in the matching colours and then stamped the Made with Love sentiment I then mounted this onto some So Saffron card stock and glued to the inside of the card.
