Some yellow cards...

Yellow is one of those colours I'm not too fussed about really. I'm not a particular fan of neon-bright-in-your-face kind of yellow but the softer more buttery tones I do quite like as an accent rather than a main colour. Howver this week I've managed to do three cards all with a yellow as a more dominant colour and I really like how these have turned out.

This first one is for SC294 and the ILWS Colour challenge this month to use Basic Gray, So Saffron, Certainly Celery and Whisper White.


Stamps:  Vintage Vogue, Vintage Wheel

Papers: Certainly Celery, Basic Gray, So Saffron, Whisper White

Inks: Basic Gray, So Saffron, Certainly Celery

Accessories: Fairytale Ribbons (retired), Square gem brads from stash

My new card is for another ILWS challenge - the sketch one from this month and for Papertrey Peeps #14 to use red, yellow, cream and white. I absolutely love this colour combo and yet it is so not me at all! Just shows how sometimes you have to try something to love it!


Stamps: All About You Additions, Polka Dot Basics II

Papers: Harvest Gold (PTI), Real Red (SU), Cream and white from old stash, Beautiful Blooms DSP

Inks: Real Red, Yoyo Yellow both from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Harvest Gold stitched grosgrain ribbon, Sunshine Impression Plate both from PTI

And my final yellow card is a request from my MIL who needed a birthday card for her cat-obsessed friend, so I came up with this one using the old colour combo from SCS #34 and the sketch layout for Our Creative Corner #29.


Stamps: Thomas with Birthday Cake from Lili of the Valley, Mega Mixed Messages and Fancy Flourishes both from PTI

Papers: Close To Cocoa, Ruby Red, Copic White, So Saffron DSP

Inks: Close To Cocoa, Ruby Red, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Labels 4 Nestabilities, Cinnamon Stickles, ribbon from stash

Be sure to come back and check out my other posts with all the stuff I did over the weekend.


  1. Vannessa, all these look fantastic! Great soft colors and details on the first and adorable little kitty on the birthday card-so sweet! Fabulous job with the Peeps challenge--LOVE all the polka dots and circle images! And you used that marvelous impression plate--I so need to order it! Glad you could play along.

  2. oh they are all wonderful and i love the kitty image :) thanks for joining us on the OCCSC this week

  3. Love the cards. My favorite is the one using the sunshine impression plate. I like how well it goes with the polka dots. Just got my sunshine plate yesterday and I can't wait to use it.
