Colour Creations Showcase – Bermuda Bay

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is the gorgeous, Bermuda Bay!

I just love this stunning colour and I was very happy with how my card turned out. This Beautiful Moments stamp set is so sweet and I am super happy that it carried over into the new Annual catalogue.

I did a water colour wash on some Water colour paper with Bermuda Bay ink mixed with some Frost White Shimmer White Paint and applied it with an AquaPainter. After it dried, I ran it through my embossing machine in the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I cut the paper down to size and used my sewing machine to add some crazy stitching around the edges as a border. I roughed up the edges with my scissors and then glued it to my card front.

The image is stamped and coloured, also with Shimmer Paint added. Cut out the image and I used my Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Marker around the edges so it blended into the background better. This is popped up on dimensionals.

On the inside I wanted to create a pop up card with the stamped image of the two girls. I coloured them the same way.

This photo shows them a little closer, popped up (especially with the shadow)!

It is very easy to create – simply cut the insert and score it in half. Here is a template:

When you fold this insert in half (valley fold), the two small sections need to pop into the card (mountain fold) to create the small sections. I think you can see it better on this angle. I just measured exactly where these cut lines needed to be and how wide, to sit behind the image of the girls.

  1. Such a beautiful card Kate, I love it so much and the pop up on the inside as well. Your colouring is just perfection. I love the addition of the shimmer paint and then colouring around the cut outs to blend them in with the back ground. A really lovely, gorgeous card!

  2. Lovely card, Kate. I really like the idea of adding shimmer paint to your watercolouring, and the stitching on the front of the card looks fab. What a great surprise, to add the pop-up element inside the card! Very sweet.

  3. This card is simply stunning Kate and your pop up of the two little girls is just adorable. I love how you’ve used your sewing machine for the front of the card too. Thank you so much for joining the AWH Colour Creations showcase to provide some Bermuda Bay colour inspiration xx
