Cheer up.. buttercup!

Hello and Happy Monday :)

We got a bunch more snow here through the night... but at least the sun is shining! I re-organized my craft room yesterday with new shelving and desks. I finally had a bit of time to sit down and create some cards.

This card is featuring a new stamp set called 'Geometrical' - it's one of my favourite new sets. I wanted to make it like a bullseye and the arrows are pointing to the sentiment 'cheer up buttercup'... to say hurry up and get better.
I used the new 'arrow' embossing folder too, another favourite of mine. I chose to use the colours that coordinate with the set [Bermuda Bay, Strawberry Slush, Basic Black, Smoky Slate - the only colour I changed was the Crushed Curry]. While I do love that colour, I wanted to see how 'Summer Starfruit' would go  - and I think it blended nicely with the other colours :)
I have another very vibrant yellow card to share with you! I love how happy the colour yellow makes me, it's such an uplifting colour. This card features many different shades of yellow - starting with my favourite for the background 'Summer Starfruit', embossed with the 'Arrows' Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from the Occasions Catalogue. I then cut 2 circles with the circles collection framelits, one in 'Crushed Curry' and the other in 'Whisper White'. I stamped the sentiment from the 'Geometrical' stamp set, then thought it needed something more - so I took the circle stamp and inked it up with summer starfruit, crushed curry and daffodil delight stamping on and off for different variances of colour. I then stamped the buttercup flower from 'happy watercolour' and coloured it in with 'Crushed Curry' ink and cut it out with my paper snips and popped up on dimensionals and tied a piece of the Sale-a-bration Summer Starfruit Baker's Twine, which I frayed. I love it - one of my favourite cards that I've made with the new products!
