Stampin’ Up! So Saffron – AWH Colour Creations Showcase Week 48

Hello everyone! I hope that some of you got to enjoy Mother's Day with your loved ones last weekend. I did get a lovely homemade breakfast of poached egg on toast with spinach, herbs and mini Roma tomatoes (my fave) but spent the day quietly recovering from a head cold. 

Feeling much better now and would love to welcome you to another week of the Colour Creations Showcase where this week we look at So Saffron. This is a soft yellow from the Subtles colour family.

The card created this week is fairly quick and simple where I have used layers of different DSP in So Saffron, Basic Black and Basic White. Three layers in different widths adhered to the card stock base. The DSP include Subtles 2021-22 Assortment and True Love. When I saw the True Love DSP with the daisy print it inspired me to add the daisies made from Pierced Blooms dies. Each daisy is comprised of two petal shapes and the flower centre all adhered with glue dots.

Last week I had received some of my Stampin' Up! order with items from the new annual catalogue and so wanted to work with the Simply Elegant Suite. The greeting is from the Elegantly Said stamp set in this suite and has been stamped in VersaMark on Basic Black and then heat embossed with White embossing powder. The greeting was then punched out with the Elegant Tag punch and adhered with dimensionals to the DSP layer. I can't wait to play with the rest of the suite especially with the gorgeous and very elegant DSP!


Just wanted to show the inside of the card where I have added thin layers of the same DSP but this time I have coloured some of the daisies with the So Saffron Stampin' Blends.

Thank you so much for stopping by this week and for more inspiration from the other lovely ladies you can hop over to Cathy Proctor's blog. Hope you have a wonderful week ahead, stay healthy and happy!


  1. What a lovely sunny happy card Rosa - the Elegant Tag punch looks amazing layered in black and white!

  2. Wow Rosa, this is just amazing. So many little details to love. I really like how you have offset the punched labels, and coloured the DSP flowers on the inside of the card. The pierced blooms are the perfect finish. A great So Saffron card!

  3. What a beautiful design you have come up with, to showcase So Saffron, Rosa. I just LOVE how you've created Pierced Blooms daisies to complement that delightfully busy daisy paper ... you have inspired me, as I haven't known how to use that paper! Gorgeous.

  4. This is a really sweet card, Rosa. The blooms on the front are so pretty, and I love how you've coloured some of the DSP flowers on the inside.

  5. I love your pierced bloom daisies to match the DSP, Rosa. The pop of colour is gorgeous against the B&W background.

  6. Oh my Rosa - such a striking card! I love the black & white DSP with those Pierced Blooms flowers. Just gorgeous!
