Colour Creations Blog Hop with the AWH Team

Hello friends and welcome.
Our lovely team member, Catherine Proctor, came up with the idea of showcasing every colour in the Stampin' Up! colour collection. So each Tuesday night, members of the Art With Heart Team will share projects that we've made with the featured colour for that night. We are working our way through the colours in alphabetical order and tonight we are up to Bermuda Bay.

So sit back, relax and enjoy the Colour Creations Blog Hop 
with the Art With Heart Team.

Bermuda Bay 6"x 6" DSP from the Brights Collection

Recently I was having a bit of a "blog surf" and came upon the blog of UK demonstrator Linda Parker. She shared a video on how she created a pop-up card and I thought that I'd have a try at making one myself.

I've used Linda's measurements and made this 4" x 4" card.
The base is Thick Whisper White and I've accented the Bermuda Bay with Night of Navy. It's a gorgeous colour combination.
I just love the new Tufted embossing folder! I've used it on the stitched oval and the second layer of matting. The flower image is from the 'Love What You Do' stamp set and the sentiment is from 'Varied Vases'. Lots of layering with the Layering Ovals dies and the sentiment was cut with the Classic Label punch, then I re-inserted each end and punched, and this leaves you with the flagged ends. I added some Basic Rhinestones for some bling and the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon compliments the softness of the card.

The inside pop-up section was fun to make and decorate. I stamped another sentiment from the Varied Vases set and more of the floral images from Love What You Do. I love mixing and matching our stamp sets to create the look I want. I left the bottom panel blank for writing on.

Well that's it from me. To see more projects featuring our gorgeous Bermuda Bay, hop over to Catherine's blog to view her creation and where she has the list of the other girls who participated tonight.

Sue's 3" x 3" cards.

Hi friends and welcome to tonight's blog post.

 I thought I would share a little set of 3" x 3" cards with you all.
I absolutely love making these mini card sets and gifting them to friends for their birthdays. I have so much fun personalising them to suit each one's likes and tastes. I'm giving this set to my friend Sue for her birthday.

I start with a Thick Whisper White card base that measures 6" x 3", and score along the 6" side @ 3" to create the centre fold line. I cut five squares of cardstock to 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" in Cherry Cobbler, Bermuda Bay, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Rich Razzleberry and ran these through the Layered Leaves 3D Dynamic TIEF. Taking the double flower image from 'Petal Palette' stamp set, I stamped onto a stitched square of Thick Whisper White C/S with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and coloured with Stampin' Blends in the embossed panel colours. I attached these squares to the card with dimensionals.

To hold the cards I made a box on the Envelope Punch Board and secured with a belly-band. I stamped and die-cut the same flower image and layered onto another stitched square of Cherry Cobbler and attached this to the belly-band with Tombow glue. I brushed Wink of Stella over all of the flowers for a lovely sparkle and added (retired) Glitter Epoxy shapes. For the flowers on the box I used Rhinestones.

The set is complete with our matching 3" x 3" envelopes.

Thanks for stopping by today. I have a list of all the products I've used to create this mini card set below.

Until next time.....
Stay happy & stay crafty! 😘
