Week 14 – Daffodil Delight

It’s the first week of spring here in Australia so I wanted to make a sunny, happy card using Daffodil Delight. And if there was ever a sunny happy stamp set that was begging to be inked up with Daffodil Delight it’s the Timeless Tropical stamp set with its co-ordinating In the Tropics dies.

Originally I had intended to make a card by water colouring the hibiscus and the frangipani stamp set but when I opened my stamp I realised I had never used the the pineapple die and little pineapple stamp – and I knew they would look great in Daffodil Delight too.

I began by creating a piece of homemade DSP for my background layer using Whisper White card stock.

This homemade DSP was quick and easy to do using just the one small pineapple stamp inked up with the following colour combination: Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Crumb Cake.

The body of the pineapple was created in two layers: die cutting the pineapple in Daffodil Delight card stock and then tracing around the outline of this pineapple die and fussing cutting the die shape out of another piece of Daffodil Delight card stock to layer under the die.

Having a second layer of Daffodil Delight card stock allowed me to use my Daffodil Delight and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends to colour inside the holes of the top layer pineapple die to highlight the “knobbly” bits on the pineapple.

Don’t you love the way this highlights the texture of the pineapple?

The leafy pineapple top was die cut from Old Olive card stock and I used my light and dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends to add colour variation and texture to it as well.

The Whisper White card stock layer the pineapple is adhered to is die cut with a long rectangle die from the Ornate layers dies and it’s just perfect for the size of the pineapple.

Did you realise the In the Tropics dies include a gorgeous little “Aloha” greeting die? I’ve found the best way to cut and adhere this die is by first cutting a rectangle of card stock slightly larger than the Aloha die and then attaching this card stock to some adhesive sheet.

Once you die cut the Aloha sentiment the adhesive sheet helps keep the word straight, as well as providing the easiest way to adhere it to a card.

The final touch for my pineapple card is a simple bow made from Braided Linen Trim with the ends frayed.

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 15 Daffodil Delight

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 15 Daffodil Delight

Welcome to week 15 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!

This week we are showcasing one of the brights colours: Daffodil Delight.

This bright and beautiful colour was just perfect for the card I needed to make this week: a birthday card for one of my very best friends: Rachel, who I originally met at mother’s group. In a few month’s time, our boys will turn 20 and they’re still wonderful friends, as are Rachel and I.

One of the many things I love about Rachel is that she always has a vase of freshly cut flowers in her home, so I decided to make her a floral birthday card in some of her very favourite colours using the Oh So Eclectic Stamp Set and matching Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies.

I love using my marker pens to draw on top of my stamps and add extra interest and details to my background. For this card, I stamped one of the smallest stamps from the Oh So Eclectic set in Daffodil Delight and then added dots to the stamp using my Basic Black Marker.

A touch of bling was to add a strip of the Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon to the base of the card and a couple of gold facetted gems to the card. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Hand Delivered Hostess set, stamped in White Craft Ink onto Basic Black cardstock and heat embossed using white embossing powder.

And just because it’s spring, here’s a photo of my card under a bunch of stunning clivias which are blooming in my garden at the moment.
