It's Yellow and Gold Week

Yellow is a colour that you don't see scrapped often. I don't know why, since it's such a cheerful colour.  During these cold, dull months of winter, isn't it nice to scrap and play with a bright, happy colour like yellow?

So this week we will be sharing all things Yellow - and what is another tone of yellow?  GOLD

All this week - in-store - things Yellow and Gold are 20% off - we have created a special YELLOW & GOLD WEEK section on the website with the discounted price already applied.  (Make sure you check the 50% off section too as there is MORE yellow products listed in this section)

Of course what is on my desk at the moment has nothing to do with this sudden thought to promote yellow - I have no idea what gave me the inspiration to scrap yellow. ROFL (Hmmm - Ngaire is wondering if RED will be the colour for next week???)

Here is a snippet of what has been created to match our yellow theme...

I am sure if you took at look through your photos, you will find some yellow ... so start creating today with a fun, bright and happy colour like yellow.

So pop over to the YELLOW section and watch for a yellow infusion of creations on our blog this week.

Let's start the week off with a birthday card.

Yellow Scrapbooking

Start off with a Twiddleybitz C6 white card and apply some Mustard Seed Distress Paint towards the top and in the middle.  Spray with water and tilt your card down so it dribbles to the bottom.  

Once dry, give it some black splats by using your Black Soot Distress Stain and banging it down onto the card.  Run your Distress Stain along the edges of your card as well.

Leave to dry.

While your card is drying, grab a Twiddleybitz Chipboard Lightbulb and paint with Black Soot Distress Paint.  
Once dry, (which takes around the time it takes to make yourself a coffee), use your finger to wipe some Inka Gold over your chipboard.

Add the lightbulb to the centre of your card and then apply rock candy crackle paint over it.

Now add some yellow rose buds and yellow roses.

Grab some yellow scrap cardstock and cut some very thin strips.
Add the strips amongst your cluster of roses.  (Keep one strip for next step.)

Using the same scrap cardstock, cut yourself a banner from the Tattered Banner die and stamp with your sentiment.

And finally, to finish off, add a charm (of course).  Tie a small piece of Buttercream Yellow Baker's Twine and your extra thin strip in the loop of a silver clock charm.

Ta da one Birthday Card.
No reason why you can't use the lightbulb as an embellishment for a layout either!

Aren't you warmer and more cheery already??
