Sweet yellows...

Wednesday, August 17, 2011

I managed to get a card done just for fun today. I've been having a thing for yellow recently so when I saw the color palette at CR84FN Color Challenge this week I just had to make a card! Here's the color palette CR84FN36. I just love kraft with yellow, it works so well.

I used some of the gorgeous papers from Victoria Gardens by Echo Park, I love these papers, I've never gone through a pad so fast! The friend sentiment is from Hero Arts Live and Laugh stamped in Coffee archival ink, I love those large sentiments! The dearest text is from Cameo to Go by Waltzingmouse Stamps stamped in lemon yellow. The banner tag is from Bitty Banners by Waltzingmouse Stamps.

The cameo I made from white Fimo and an Etsy mold, I picked out the yellow from the twill ribbon (from The Ribbon Reel) and painted with acrylic paints.You wouldn't think a yellow cameo would work!!

The lace I had in my stash. I also added a little feather, lemon seam binding bow and some yellow and white Baker's Twine from The Ribbon Reel.

Ok, I'll be back tomorrow with my card for the CASE Study Challenge! See you then!! : ) Have a great day!


  1. Hi Claire

    Now I confess that yellow is not a colour I would usually use - in fact the only time I've used it was in a blog challenge! BUT now I see how you've used it - and made it look soooo pretty I think I need to re-think about using it more! It does go so well with the kraft (in fact I find kraft paper so kind to sooo many colours don't you!)

    Anyway take care and speak soon.

    it all goes together so beautifully!
    Have been eyeing some of those cameos myself...
