Color Coach Creations Idea Share – Daffodil Delight

Hi Stampeders!

I am re-posting the three Color Coach Creations Idea-Share posts from my old blog located here.  I will now be posting information on this blog exclusively.  Thank you for your understanding during this transition.

I am really excited about this fun new concept.  I hope my weekly card and project designs, with information about each special Stampin’ Up! color, will stir up your creative juices!  I have included (below the pics of the Color Coach) a photo  tutorial of the first Color Coach Creations card design and instructions to make this project.  Enjoy!

Want a chance to win a free Color Coach?  All you need to do is leave a comment on any of the four weekly Color Coach Creations Idea-Share posts ONLY for the month of July 2010 (posts on the 10th, 17th, 24th, 31st).   I will have my hubby pick one name  on August 1, 2010.

Let this coach help you put together custom color schemes to express your unique creativity. Whether you want a quick reference of all colors in a collection, a card for every color, or blank cards to record your own color combinations, this swatch book is for you!

  • Includes 55 double-sided cards with removable metal post fastener
  • Includes color theory cards and individual color swatch cards
  • On individual color cards, one side shows color, the other side lists coordinating colors
  • Coach Card size: 2-3/4″ x 4-1/2″

This combination highlights the colors from the Getting Started Collection from Stampin’ Up!

Color is a wonderful way to communicate your feelings and mood.  I wanted to make this card feel cheery and happy so Daffodil Delight make a wonderful uplifting statement for the receiver!

Card Size:  A2

Daffodil Delight card stock – cut @ 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored and folded @ 4-1/2″

Night of Navy card stock-cut @ 3-3/4″ x 2-3/4″

Step 1: Use the Scallop Trim Corner Punch and punch at the top left and right of the card front.

Step 2: Use the Scallop Trim Border Punch along on of the 3-3/4″ edges of the Night of Navy card stock.  Thread a piece of 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon (Daffodil Delight) through the open areas of the scallops.  Fold the ribbon ends over to the back of the card stock and secure with tape.

Step 3: Use the stem image from the Sweetheart stamp set and a clear mount block to stamp the stem with Old Olive Classic Ink onto Very Vanilla card stock.  Trim around the image with Paper Snips.

Step 4:  Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the stem image, center on the Night of Navy mat overlapping the stem over the ribbon.  Adhere.

Step 5.  Stamp the bird image onto the front of the envelope and also the inside of the card with a cute sentiment.  This sample uses a sentiment from the retired A Little Birthday Cheer stamp set.
