Colour Creations: Bumblebee

 Hi!



Welcome back to this week's Colour Creations Blog Hop. This week it's Bumblebee's turn. Are you a fan of this mustardy-yellow? I am not! I much prefer a 'cleaner' yellow, so I really struggled with this week's card. In looking through the products I own that featured Bumblebee, I came across my What A Year Memories and More card pack, and an idea was born!

I loved the tile pattern on this card, and so it became the basis for my card. I started by cropping the curve in the bottom of the card using one of my Basic Borders Dies. I then matted the piece on some Bumblebee cardstock and cropped it again, so that I had a thin Bumblebee border all around the piece.

I couldn't resist using the retired Dainty Diamonds 3DEF on the Whisper White card - it is the perfect match with the M&M card! A few pops of black with the Matte Black Dots finished off the front nicely.

You can see that on the inside of my card I used the offcuts from the M&M card and the Bumblebee matt on the front. Not much gets wasted in my house!

Please continue your way around our Blog Hop, as there's plenty more inspiration to be seen. Next up is the AWH Team leader, Claire Daly.

  1. Tina you are the cleverest person I know with looking at a limited supply of a colour and coming up with something unique. Love the curve on the M&M card and the use of the off cut inside.

  2. That cheery tile pattern has a real Moroccan look about it, I think. Bumblebee looks beautiful with white, and black touches, Tina. Nice way to decorate the inside of your card, too!

  5. Oh Tina, this is such an eye-catching card. I love Bumblebee with a stark white and that tile pattern is stunning. I agree with you about the tone of Bumblebee, not my favourite either ;)
