Aug 22, 2018 | Color of the Week, Colors

Welcome to Week 12 of my Color of the Week series!  This week’s color is So Saffron, which is part of the Subtles color family. I am sharing a color each week this catalog year, so after you read all about So Saffron head over to this section of the blog.  

Make sure to follow along here on the blog or on my Instagram and Facebook pages.  I will be using the hashtag #makewithcolor throughout the year when I share color projects and combinations and ask that you join in too!  All you have to do is tag me (@mackenziemakes) and use the #makewithcolor hashtag so I can see what you are sharing. I’m so excited to bring you color inspiration all year long!

CARD INSPIRATION

It is always nice when packs of Designer Series Paper (DSP) contain some patterns that only feature one color.  For this week’s card, I used a sheet from the Garden Impressions 6″ x 6″ DSP that uses So Saffron on the one side.

The card base is a piece of So Saffron cardstock cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and scored and folded at 4-1/4″ on the long side.  Cut the piece of DSP to a 3″ square and layer on top of a 3-1/8″ x 3-1/8″ piece of Night of Navy cardstock.  Lay this piece on the card front to determine where to stamp the dot image from the Timeless Textures stamp set.  Remove the DSP layer and stamp in the upper left area and towards the bottom right with So Saffron ink.

Wrap a length of Night of Navy Medium Baker’s Twine around the DSP layer and tie in a bow.  Add this layer to the card with Dimensionals.  Stamp the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set on a piece of So Saffron cardstock with Night of Navy ink and punch out with the Classic Label Punch.  If desired, use this same punch only on the ends of the punched out piece to alter the direction of the banner ends.  Add this piece to the square section with Mini Dimensionals.
