Stampin' Up - Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop Week 3 - Bermuda Bay

Darling Label Punch Box, All The Good Things

Tonight, some of the ladies of the Art With Heart Team will be bringing you a blog hop featuring one of the gorgeous colours from the Stampin’ Up range. 

Each week the lovely CathyProctor will be hosting the blog hop and we will be going through the colours in the range in alphabetical order. 

This week “Bermuda Bay ” is up.

I have made 2 quite simple cards for you tonight as I wanted to show off the gorgeous colour of Bermuda Bay. The first I have combined the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Specialty Paper with the Darling Label Punch Box stamps and punch. The Second card I have used the All The Good things on water colour paper and used the Bermuda Bay as a water wash.

The Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Paper is just gorgeous, and you are going to love it. There are so many pretty designs that you can use to make quick easy cards and also full-size sheets for scrapbooking as well. Just beautiful.

I wanted to make a monochromatic card to detail the Bermuda Bay theme and just show you how quick and easy it was to put together a card using this paper.

I have stamped the Thinking of you from the Darling Label Punch Box in Bermuda Bay and with the punch that comes in the box punched it out and then another one in the Bermuda Bay just so I could give a little colour behind the tag. Popped that on some dimensional and with a little bit of ribbon from the Tea Room Combo Pack your card is finished. Quick and easy to make multiples of or if you are in a hurry and need to make a card.

The second card is a little more involved and I used the Stamparatus to help me to make sure I could add more ink if I thought I didn’t have quite enough ink on my image.

I really loved this stamp set All the Good Things when I saw it in the catalogue and so did my daughter so I just couldn’t wait to get it. It is one of the DistINKtive set of stamps that Stampin’ Up has exclusively designed.

It really is gorgeous and I have stamped it on the water colour paper in stazon then added some crushed curry over the top with my sponge dauber just to give it a little more colour.  Then I used my aquapainter and picked up some of the Bermuda bay ink to wash around the Koi fish.
I wasn’t quite finished, I thought the fish needed a little bit more glam so I got my wink of stella glitter brush out and coloured over the fish to make them sparkle. Also I needed must one more little saying and I found that in the new hostess set Artfully Folded. “Be your own kind of Beautiful” I just love this set too and this sentiment! I have used the same ribbon as I did on the first card as it is just beautiful and added some extra bling with the clear rhinestones.

On the inside of the card I have stamped the Koi fish on plan whisper which and I think you can see the detail so much clearer than on the water colour paper. I have stamped it in crushed curry and then added a little bit of pumpkin pie blend pen to the more solid part of the rubber and stamped again to give the darker colour in the koi fish.
Both cards were quick to make with just a little bit of water wash technique in the second card so a little bit extra time needed. If you would like any help in making these cards or ordering supplies to make them don’t hesitate to contact me.

  1. The delightfully detailed laser cut paper makes such easy and elegant cards doesn't it!

  2. Love these ideas Sharon. The monochromatic card is fabulous, and I love the effects you have got on the fish card.

  3. I love both your cards Sharon! You've really made me want that hostess stamp now! Thanks for hopping along in the blog hop!

  4. Beautiful cards, Sharon! The fish are really pretty, and Bermuda Bay works so well as the wash background.
