Week 47 Colour Creations Blog-Hop - So Saffron


Hello and Welcome to the Colour Creations Blog-Hop. Only 3 more week to go and we have finished all the colours in the 2022-2023 Annual catalogue. Wow I wonder what beautiful new colours we will have coming up soon. Along with a Colour fresh, which usually see's some of the more popular old colours return. That should be fun. But today we are featuring So Saffron. It's a powdery Yellow not a colour a go for very often. But I hope I did it justice.  I decided to make a card and matching gift box. So I started with a So Saffron Base for both the card and box. For the card I added a Basic white layer that I Embossed using the Sweet Citrus Hybrid Embossing folder.  I then coloured the fruit using my Blending brushes and So Saffron and Parakeet Party ink. Then placing a DSP layer from the Tea Boutique Papers. I finished off the front of the card using the Lovely Sweet Citrus Bundle. (I love fruit stamps) Adding a bow using the Parakeet Party ribbon and the 2021-2023 Opal Rounds. That will be retiring at the end of April.

I made my little gift box to match the front of the card. I will fill this with sherbet Lemons. YUM.... For the inside of my card I just added a Basic White Layer that I stamped with the Lemons and added my Sentiment. All the Lemons are stamped using So Saffron ink.

The fruit look as though they have all been thrown up in the air. I like that look. All Items using in this project can be found in the 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue and the Jan-April 2023 Mini Catalogue.

  1. Oh, what a cute idea to create a matching gift box for your card, Di. This project is totally delicious and yes, you certainly did do this colour justice.

  2. Lovely card Di! I can't even remember if I ordered the Citrus bundle last week, or if I kept it on my wishlist for my next pay packet. Whatever, I can't wait to play with it!

  3. A great card, Di and to have a coordinating small giftbox filled with Lemon Sherbets, will certainly please the recipient!
