Bumblebee with Daisy Garden & Celebrate Sunflowers
Hi. Welcome to Valley Inspirations with Andrea and the Art with Heart 2021-2022 Colour Creations Blog Hop. This week's Blog Hop is focussing on a happy Stampin' Up! colour called Bumblebee.
As the water-coloured panel was drying it was embossed with the Tasteful Texture 3D Embossing Folder. When dry the panel was mounted on Bumblebee card-stock and some White Crinkled Seam Binding was wrapped around and tied in a bow. This was mounted on a Thick Basic White card-stock base.
A label was also cut from Bumblebee card-stock using a small Hippo & Friends label die. A sentiment from the Color & Contour stamp set was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed as mentioned above. The sentiment was fussy cut.
The card inner was simply decorated with a partial stamping of the Daisy Garden stamp using Bumblebee Classic Stampin' ink onto a Basic White card-stock panel. A C6 Basic White envelope was stamped in a similar way to coordinate with the card.
Loving the layout (as shown above), I changed my prior design concepts and squeezed in creating this 2nd project using the preprepared water-coloured panels and the Celebrate Sunflowers bundle.
Using the Sunflowers dies, the open sunflower die cut the sunflower shape from the light Bumblebee coloured Shimmery White piece and the detailed sunflower and flower centre dies were used on Basic White card-stock. The detailed leaves were cut from the Soft Succulent water-coloured panel. These pieces were arranged and positioned with liquid glue or Dimensionals.
The sentiment (from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set) was stamped in Versamark on Bumblebee card-stock and heat embossed with White Emboss Powder. It was fussy cut and added to the centre of the flower together with a cute Bumblebee Trinket. Clear Epoxy Essential embellishments in the droplet shape also were scattered giving a sense of raindrops over the flower and backdrop.
An off-cut from the water-coloured stripes was added to a Basic White panel, as was the word "you" that was part of the front sentiment and a spray of Soft Succulent water-coloured leaves. A C6 Basic White envelope was partially stamped with the sunflower stamp in Bumblebee ink to coordinate with the card.
