AWH Colour Creations - Bumblebee


AWH Colour Creations Blog Header

It's week 6 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase and this week we are buzzing around like little Bumble Bees!

I haven’t purchased the Bumble Bee Ink Pad yet, but I had card stock AND I had 2 lots of Designer Series Papers that had plenty of Bumble Bee in the designs - the Flowers for Every Season DSP and the Ornate Garden DSP.

Four Season Floral Stampin' Up Bumblebee (2)

In the end I settled on Flowers for Every Season so it would coordinate with the Four Season Floral Stamp Set I wanted to use - and I kept the colour scheme VERY simple, just Bumble Bee and Whisper White with some black stamped images.

In light of the announcement of Stage 3 Covid19 restrictions that hit Melbourne at 4pm yesterday, I chose the Comfort and Hope stamp from the Comfort and Hope stamp set so that today I could post out three very timely cards for friends who I am particularly thinking of now that we are back in Stay at Home restrictions.

Four Season Floral Stampin' Up Bumblebee (1)

Why three? Well the design I have used - which was inspired by very cute Zebra cards by Emma Goddard lends itself to making 3 cards at once - as you cut each piece into 3 for the front panel.

I have used one die each from the Rectangle Stitched Dies and the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to cut out the sentiment panel. The stamped roses from Four Season Floral are actually coloured with Stampin’ Blends - Daffodil Delight Dark & Light and Light Crumb Cake, and each of the coloured images are fussy cut with my Stampin’ Snips - they are very easy images to quickly cut out.

As usual, don't forget to stamp the inside! I keep it nice and simple!

The sentiment on the inside is also from the Comfort and Hope stamp set and reads "Sending you a paper hug".

Well, that's my creation for the week! If you would like to see what the other Art With Heart talented ladies have made with a Bumble Bee colour scheme, please pop over to Cathy's blog where you will find the list of creators.

LOL! I made a similar card last week, but I’m yet to finish cards #2 & 3. Your cards are beautiful, and I’m sure they will be appreciated by the recipients.

Sharon Davern

Really lovely cards Kathryn, I love the idea of being able to make the 3 cards at once with how you cut the paper and card. They are very pretty cards!

Andrea Sargent

Beautiful cards Kathryn. I so love the angled cuts of the card fronts, especially with the added interest of embossing on one and using DSP for another. A great way to create 3 different though similar cards. The addition of the flowers with the sentiment is just gorgeous. I’m sure you will lift the emotions of the recipients of these cards. 💖💖💖

Diane Furniss

Lovely Cards Kathryn, The embossing really stands out and catches the eye.

Kate Morgan

Now that is a cool way of creating 3 quick cards by cutting your front panels like that, very clever!!!

Cathy Proctor

Kathryn this is such a wonderful card design - I can so so many possibilities with it! I love your monochrome scheme too. Thank you for inspiring us all with your Bumblebee creations xx

Theresa Gerrard

Great colour combo Kathryn and love how the technique lends itself to making 3 cards. Bonus!

Caroline Manwaring

Such a lovely set of cards Kathryn, and a great design layout too and so versatile.

Christine Blain

Lovely, cheery cards, Kathryn - and great, economical use of the papers and card! These cards are sure to uplift the recipients.

Beautiful cards Kathryn, I love the Embossing and how you've changed around the different layers to create 3 different cards.
