Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.
A blog hop, also known as blog hopping, is to move from one blog to another, continuing in a full circle to read all the posts by participants in the hop. At the end of each post will be a link to continue to the next blog!
Week 7 – Bumblebee
I really love the layout of this card, its simplicity, but also the natural wood textured paper (In Good Taste DSP – which is on sale this month)!
The Thick Basic White card was die cut using the Basic Borders die to create that gorgeous stitched curve. Two pieces of A6 DSP were glued together and placed behind the curve to create the card front. By doubling up the DSP, it not only made it more sturdy, but the inside compliments the front of the card! Just Jade and Magenta Madness are the other two card stocks for the floral images. The sentiment is stamped in Bumblebee on some scrap card and die cut using the die from the Pierced Blooms dies. While the card is still in the die, turn it over and use the stylus from the Simply Scored to run around the inside edge. This gives that gorgeous raised edge around the sentiment!
To create the splatters, I placed some Bumblebee ink onto an acrylic block and squeezed my Wink of Stella into it, to make it juicy then tapped it against my fingers to get the splatters, of course with an extra glitter effect.
I made some faux resin dots with a hole punch and some fine tip glue.
On the inside you can see the same DSP as the front. I also added two small different size strips of card for extra colour and some more Stitched Blooms!
I saw this idea from The Paper Papillon and decided to case it but changed up the colours and papers to make it my own.
