Week 44 Colour Creations Blog-Hop - So Saffron


Hello Everyone and welcome to week 44 of the Colour Creations Blog-hop. We are almost at the end of the colours now and it will be sad to see the end of another year of colours.

This week we are featuring So Saffron to me it's a buttery kind of yellow and not an easy colour to work with. So I teamed it up with Basic Black and some products that will be retiring at the end of the current Annual Catalogue.

I started with a Basic Black card base and added a So Saffron layer to the front that I had embossed using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder. I then added a Basic Black Strip topped with a So Saffron Strip about 1/3rd down the front of the card and added a Daisy in Black and So Saffron. I punched out the larger Daisy twice in Basic Black and the Medium Daisy twice in So Saffron. layering the two daisies on top of each other. I then added a tab at the bottom using the Banners Pick A Punch and a butterfly using the Butterfly Brilliance dies. Finishing off the front with some of my favourite embellishments Iridescent Rhinestones from the Mini Catalogue.

Keeping with the theme of So Saffron and Basic Black I kept my insert plain and used only Momento Ink. So I layers my Basic White onto So Saffron before attaching to the inside of the card.

So Saffron is Subtles Collection and although it's not one of the easiest colours for me to use, I was happy with my card. Plain but pretty.

Don't forget that the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder and the Large Daisy punch along with the Daisy Lane Stamp set  are retiring on the 2nd May 2022 so you will have to get in quick if you wish to purchase these items. all other items are still available. If you would like to purchase any or all of these items please feel free to give me a call, PM or email so that I might help you.

  1. Di, your colour combination looks fantastic and I love your daisy too. I also struggle with this shade of yellow and I think you should be rightly pleased with this card.

  2. The Ornate Floral embossed background is a lovely backdrop to your gorgeous daisy, Di. Nice work with this colour (that I find so hard to use!).

    Stunning card Di, I love black with So Saffron. Your black and yellow Daisy is beautiful

  4. Navy and yellow are always a good combination.

  5. Pretty card, Di. The two daisy punches to create one big one and the butterfly are lovely touches.

    At first glance I thought you had teamed So Saffron with Night of Navy, Diane, but it’s Basic Black and equally as striking. I love the butterflies and the embossed texture looks beautiful.
