Kristina's Colour Inspiration #12

Here is Kristina's colour inspiration for the week:
I wanted to participate in the last couple of colour inspirations but didn't end up having time so I was looking forward to see what this week's challenge would be. I managed to make 2 cards this week and here they are: This is my first attempt. I've used the Think Happy Thoughts stamp set for the flowers and dotted cirlces around them. I've stamped the images using So Saffron and Wild Wasabi ink on whisper white cardstock. I then punched them out using the 1 3/8" square punch and mounted them onto wasabi cardstock that I trimmed using my paper trimmer and then they are mounted onto the card using dimensionals. I used Sahara Sand eyelets in the centre of each flower. I used Sahara Sand for the base of the card then a layer of white and another layer in So Saffron which I have pierced around all sides and then used the white gel pen over the top. I used the grosgrain ribbon in white and white eyelets to thread the ribbon through before tying a bow. The For You is from the Occasional Greetings stamp set.
Here is my second attempt. The base is So Saffron with a layer of Sahara Sand at the top. I've used the small oval punch to punch out 2 wasabi leaves, 2 saffron and 5 printed saffron petals. Then it's just a matter of arranging the petals how you want them and sticking them to the plain saffron punch top and underneath. I then put dimensionals on all petals to make sure it sticks. One of the wasabi leaves is on deminsionals and the other is just stuck using snail adhesive. I drew the stem using a blender pen and wasabi inkpad. The daisy is mounted onto white cardstock and then mounted onto wasabi cardstock. The greeting is from Fun and Fast Notes stamp set.

Hi Kellie,

I love both your cards. I don't think that I could make those colours work at all, but you have done a fabulous job and made them look great together.

Well done!
