Colour Creations Bermuda Bay

The colour this week is Bermuda Bay. I like the how this colour stands out with Basic Black. Silver also adds a special touch to this colour.

Stampin' Up Bermuda Bay Rose cards

For my first card I used the dies from To A Wild Rose to cut out the rose and leaves from a Bermuda Bay matt of card. Then, I carefully removed the dies without disturbing the pieces on the die-cutting platform, and adhered a piece of clear contact paper to hold all the pieces together. This is similar to the Press 'n' Seal technique, but did you know you can use clear contact paper instead of the harder-to-acquire Press 'n' Seal?! 

After adhering the clear contact to the pieces of rose and leaves I removed the outline pieces of the design, then added some Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the backs of the pieces that were left. I turned the contact around and stuck the pieces (inner pieces of the design) to a sheet of Basic Black matt. 

Finally, I used double-sided tape to stick down the larger Bermuda Bay matt to frame the inner pieces to make the final design in black.
With the Dandelion Wishes stamp set I stamped out the sentiment. I used a bit of Sparkly Black Glitter Organdy Ribbon, and adhered the sentiment at the bottom of the card. Now I just need to think of something inspirational to write inside before I give it to one of my lovely children. I think a set of adjectives to describe them using the letters of their names would work really well!!

Stampin' Up Bermuda Bay Rose Stencil Ribbon Card

For my next card I decided on a simple (and favourite) layout of three panels. The card base is Whisper White with a matt of Bermuda Bay. I used a piece of Silver Foil cardstock and embossed it with Tin Tile embossing folder for a really stunning panel at the top of the card. For the middle panel I used the diecut rose and leaves outlines which I had made earlier and I adhered them to a piece of Whisper White cardstock embossed with Subtle 3D folder. The bottom of the card was left as the Bermuda Bay matt which was splattered with some silver paint flicked with an aqua painter. Onto this I placed a Thank You diecut in silver foil from the Well Written dies.

Here is a list of all the products I used. Just add a Paper Trimmer, Memento Black inkpad, Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Tear and Tape


  1. Tin Tile is one of my favourite embossing folders! I love combinations of blue, black and silver in cards too.

  2. Great cards, but I especially like your 3 tiered card with the tin tile foil embossing and silver paint splatters!

  3. Sujatha your colour combination is great and I really like your second card in particular - the three layers effect is so striking. Thank you so much for joining the AWH Colour Creations showcase to provide some Bermuda Bay colour inspiration xx

  4. Lovely cards, Sujatha! I don't often think to use the outline dies from To A Wild Rose on their own, without adding the stamped flower. Love the look!

  5. Great cards Sujatha. I love your combinations of colours with Bermuda Bay. like Christine, I hadn't thought of using the To a Wild Rose dies without the coordinating stamps. They work so well. X

  6. Lovely cards Sujatha, Bermuda Bay seems to work well with almost any colour but really stands out with the black.

  7. These are just lovely cards, Sujatha. I really love that embossed panel of silver foil and the silver splatter on your second card. I can't pick a favourite!

  8. Lovely cards Sujatha, I love the tin tile embossing folder to it looks great on your card. I don't actually have To a Wild Rose stamp or dies and this looks great!

  9. Lovely cards Su and especially love the tin tile emb folder. I always forget about it.
