So Saffron with Floating and Fluttering
Hi. Welcome to Valley Inspirations with Andrea and the 48th Colour Creations Showcase by members of the Art with Heart Team. Following this blog hop, we have 2 colours to complete our examination of the whole range of Stampin' Up! colours, except ... with the launch of the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue 5 new In Colours have also been launched - we will feature these gorgeous colours during June.
This week we are showcasing a soft colour, So Saffron. It is a pale yellow and is part of the Subtles Colour Family. While a light yellow, it still has enough body to stand on its own. So Saffron has been produced in Stampin' Up!'s card-stock, both A4 & 12"x12"; Classic Stampin' inks (ink pads & re-inkers); Stampin' Write Markers; Stampin' Blends, Designer Series Paper including the Sand & Sea DSP and Seaside Shells.
The die cut butterflies & foliage were arranged all over a card-front sized piece of card-stock and a layer of GLAD Press n Seal was laid on top to hold all the pieces in place. A centre rectangle was die cut using a mid-sized die from the Stitched Rectangle set (they are so versatile). The die cut centre section is pictured both in the first and last photos. This is to be used as the focal panel for another card which has not been finished in time for the blog hop.
Dimensionals & Mini Dimensionals were added to the back of each of the die cut pieces and then the piece of Press and Seal was carefully turned over and positioned over a piece of Sea & Sand DSP featuring a water-coloured look with So Saffron and Flirty Flamingo. This piece was mounted on a slightly larger piece of Very Vanilla card-stock, which in turn was mounted on to the So Saffron card base.
Basic Pearl Jewels were coloured with the Light So Saffron Stampin' Blend to enable them to subtly blend with the colour scheme. I so love the way Stampin' Up! coordinates its products. You can always trust its coordination. The coloured pearls were added to some of the bigger spaces within the floating frame section.
A small frame was cut from Very Vanilla card-stock using 2 smaller dies from the Stitched Rectangle dies. The frame was popped in place within the floating frame with Dimensionals. As the Floating & Fluttering stamp set doesn't include any sentiments, a sentiment was chosen from the Pretty Perennials stamp set. This is a great stamp set that isn't continuing past the J-J Mini Catalogue. If you are interested, don't leave adding it to your order before it is too late. Both "Sending lots of" and "happy" were stamped in Crumb Cake ink on scraps of Very Vanilla card-stock. The "Sending lots of" was cut with one of the smallest stitched rectangle dies and adhered directly to the card background, while "happy" was fussy cut and popped up on Dimensionals.
The card inner has a piece of Very Vanilla card-stock mounted on another section of the same DSP from the Sea & Sand DSP packet, which in turn was mounted inside the card on the So Saffron card base. A coloured butterfly and a couple of other partial pieces that had been trimmed off the front frame were added to the inner panel. The C6 Very Vanilla envelope isn't pictured here, but butterflies were stamped on the corner of the envelope using Crumb Cake Classic Stampin ink.
