Stampin' Up! So Saffron


Welcome to week 44 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations blog hop for 2022. This week's feature colour is So Saffron, which is a member of the Subtles colour group. So Saffron is a colour that I don't tend to use very much but now that I have had another play with it I'm actually not quite sure why that is.

This week I have decided to finally ink up the Blessings of Home stamp set and teamed So Saffron with Soft Succulent and White. 

My starting point for this card was to stamp the largest spray image in Black Memento ink and then colour the image using So Saffron, Soft Succulent and Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Blends. I then die the image with the corresponding die. I have then mounted this image on a piece of Vellum that has been both die cut using one of the Scalloped Contour dies and then embossed using one of the Meadow Moments embossing folders. I have then mounted this on a piece of DSP from the Heart and Home pack. I have also embossed this using the Tasteful Textile embossing folder as I felt the paper needed a softening a bit i line with the subtle colours of the card. You can see the embossing in more detail in the photo below. 

 After sponging the edges of the paper I then mounted this on So Saffron cardstock and then on to Soft Succulent and the finally on Basic White. The sentiment is from the Art Gallery stamp set in Soft Succulent and die cut using the corresponding die. Finally for some bling I have added a few In Colour Jewels and a couple of Brushed Brass Butterflies.

Next in tonight's blog hop is our lovely host Cathy Proctor. I look forward to seeing what beautiful creation she has to share with us tonight.

  1. What a great colour combination, Theresa! Your colouring with the blends looks amazing and I love the embossed detail behind the flowers.

  2. Such pretty colours with which to colour the gorgeous floral spray, T. Love your choice of background paper, and embossing folders. Your card is lovely.

  3. The flowers are perfect in So Saffron, and I love the contrast of the Soft Succulent base.

  4. Lovely soft colouring of your flowers and dry embossing to soften the DSP behind the blooms. Embossing the vellum adds a lovely effect too!
