Sunshine....

Oh how I wish the sun would start shining again - I'm sick and tired of all this cold weather, rain, wind and the possibility of more snow! Blurgh!

Now yellow is not normally a colour of choice for me. I prefer my pinks, but I ended up doing 3 cards this weekend with yellow as a main colour and here they are...

This first one I love! The bright DSP really cheers me up! This is for CC143 to use Summer Sun, Certainly Celery and Old Olive and for Sweet Sunday's sketch #102.


Recipe:

Stamps: Flutterby Friend from PTI

Papers: Summer Sun (retired), Certainly Celery both from SU, Stampers Select White from PTI, DSP from October Afternoon

Inks: Old Olive from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Old Olive Twill (retired) from SU, Oval Nestabilities

My next one is for Just Magnolia's Challenge #91 to use dots (my yellow DSP is all dotty!), Colour Create's Challenge #63 to use lemon, green and white, Papertake Weekly's Sketch #52 and for Just Us Girls Challenge #69 to make a 3D flower. I used the Vintage Vogue rose technique by stamping the flower from VV on the back of my DSP. They didn't quite turn out as well as they have done in the past - wonder if it was because they were made from paper instead of cardstock.


Recipe:

Stamps: Vintage Vogue from SU, Tilda with Big Ribbon from Magnolia, Signature Series: Butterfly from PTI

Papers: Barely Banana (retired), Certainly Celery both from SU, Yellow dotty DSP from Papermania, Green DSP from Kaisercraft, Copics White

Inks: Barely Banana (retired), Certainly Celery from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Circle Nestabilities, Nellies Flower Die, Ribbon from stash

My last yellow card was a very quick and simple one for Stamping Royalty's Challenge #56 for the sketch, Just Add Ink's Challenge #53 which was an inspiration picture of some sunflowers (hence the stamp I used) and Paper Pal Arts Challenge #78 to use bows.


Recipe:

Stamps: A Flower For All Seasons, Oval All both from SU

Papers: So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Whisper White, DSP (retired, but I don't know the name as I was given a few sheets by my friend Linda) all from SU

Inks: Basic Black, Chocolate Chip, Markers in So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Chocolate Chip, early Espresso, Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Tangerine Tango, Crumb Cake, Riding Hood Red all from SU

Accessories: Chocoalte Chip grosgrain ribbon (retired), Scallop Edge Punch, Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch all from SU, Square Nestabilities

And that's all from me for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!
