Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay - Week 4 AWH Blog Hop

Welcome back everyone for this weeks colour for the AWH Team Colour Creations blog hop Bermuda Bay. A bright and breezy blue that reminds me of summer and the beach. Alas here in Melbourne it’s freezing but hopefully the card I have made this week brightens the wintry days!

This weeks card is a bit different to my usual cards with a fun angle. I have CASEd this card from a member of a card swap group which I belong to. Normally I would give credit to that person but as I don’t know them well and not sure if they have their own social media sites I will just say thank you Sarah W for a brilliant idea!

There is very little stamping on this card as I wanted to use the Snail Mail DSP before it retires with the January-June mini catalogue on 30 June next week! So if other products have caught your eye in this catalogue now is the time to purchase before they disappear.

The card layers are cut as follows:

Card base
  • Bermuda Bay card base: 15cm x 10.5cm; Scored at 7.5cm long end
  • Basic White panel (x2): 10cm x 7cm
  • DSP panel (x2): 9.5cm x 6.5cm
Long strip
  • Bermuda Bay card stock: 17.5cm x 2.5cm; Scored 1cm from each end
  • DSP panel: 15cm x 2cm
Short strip
  • Bermuda Bay card stock: 9.5cm x 5cm; Scored 1cm from each end
  • DSP panel 9cm x 4.5cm
Back of card
  • Basic White panels (x2): 10cm x 7cm
Adhere strips to make the layers and don’t forget to use a bone folder to flatten the scored edges. This will help to stand the card.

Next I have both fussy cut and die cut the snails and mushrooms from the same DSP to have them ready to attach to the different layers. They can be attached after the strips have been attached.

The assembled short strip can be attached using the scored tabs to the centre of the card base, with the bottom edge aligned to the bottom edge of the card base. 

The long strip can then be attached to the back of the card using double-sided tape, with the bottom edge aligned to the bottom edge of the card base at the front of the card. 

Once the main card was assembled I added the various cutouts. The sentiment at the front is from the Turtle Friends stamp set in the new Annual catalogue and was stamped with Bermuda Bay ink.

To make the card stand I gently bent it until the front strips curved outwards. The view of the card from above. 

On the back of the card the two Basic White panels were adhered along with more cutouts and the sentiment from Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set. The bird stamped in Daffodil Delights ink is also from Turtle Friends stamp set.

Hope you have enjoyed this week’s card as much as I have making it and it all came together very quickly once the layers were cut.

Thank you so much for stopping by this week and hope you enjoy the remaining blog hop and find more inspiration from the next participant Tina Gillespie.
