AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Week 14 – Daffodil Delight

This week I have a card for a very special 50th Wedding Anniversary using the Prized Peony bundle.

Here’s how I inked the Peonies: die cut each of the 4 pieces that make up each Peony, two times in Daffodil Delight card. Then I sponged the edges with Daffodil Delight ink (Step 1). Take the Decorative Mask (dot design), lay it over the petals and sponge on some Mango Melody ink (Step 2). The final ink colour is Poppy Parade (Step 3).

Tip: to get the nice sponged colour on the inside petal of each piece, place a piece of scrap card or dsp inside before sponging.

Glue the petals together starting with the smallest and inserting it into the next size petal. Continue until you have them all glued together. The stamen is Daffodil Delight card sponged with Mango Melody ink. The leaves are simply stamped and die cut in Pear Pizzazz. The sentiment is stamped in Mango Melody on Daffodil Delight card and added with a small strip of Adhesive Foam Sheet or you could use dimensionals.

Because this is for a 50th Wedding Anniversary, I die cut the 50 in Gold foil with the Adhesive Foam Sheet behind it for extra height.

Oh and did you wonder how I got those dots on the white card base? I used placed the decorative mask on top of the card and ran it through my cut & emboss machine!

The layers behind the flowers are Daffodil Delight (Stitched Rectangle dies) and Poppy Parade card.

Paper Piecing with Beautiful You

Dear Crafters,

Today I have another card using the Beautiful You stamp set but I’ve only stamped the top part of the stamp and altered the dress!

I love this Falling in Love Designer Series paper and with this lace pattern, it just reminded me of a gorgeous lacy dress, so I created a larger dress for this image!
