In Colour – Bumble Bee

In Colour – Bumble Bee

Our next colour on the In Colour Runway is ‘Bumble Bee’; a soft pretty yellow; once again, drawn from the nature that surrounds us. You can see it below compared with some of our other yellows. It is richer and darker than So Saffron, with just a hint of orange/Mango Melody.

From my previous round up of garden colours in my Just Jade post, I’ve chosen our Banksia and Gazania photos to show off our new In Colour ‘Bumble Bee’.

Of course, when I saw the berries in the Forever Fern stamp set, I thought of our Lilly Pilly featured in my previous post ‘In Colour-Magenta Madness’ and also our Golden Wattle, captured below. Can you see a hint of wattle in the photo above?

In this design, I have included multiple layers and die cuts, once again using the the Forever Greenery Suite. I’m trying to mimic nature!

To get you started, here are some Bumble Bee product codes.

  • Bumble Bee Cardstock #153082
  • Bumble Bee Ink Pad #153116
  • Bumblebee 2020-2022 Ribbon #153622

You might also notice the use of two different embossing folders. Both of these embossing folders are included in Greenery Embossing Folders. There are two different treatments. The first – highlighting the embossed DSP with shimmer paint and the second – embossing on vellum. I found that using Pool Party cardstock as the card base ‘lifted’ the vellum.

Memories and Designing

As a young girl growing up, I was surrounded by textiles, sewing with Mum; the feel of fabric, the joy of colours working together, patterns and shapes, intricasies of design and materials. Perhaps the following samples bring back memories to you; sewing, travels & adventure?

Some Samples & Product Links for You

One of our Japanese Demonstrators, Yufu Stampin, uploaded a Kimono Style card. I’m delighted to share the design, and my take on it.

The card on the left uses the Forever Greenery DSP, Just Jade Ribbon, Soft Sea Foam cardstock; the card on the right uses Ornate Garden DSP, Bumblebee Gingham & Petal Pink Organdy Ribbon and Petal Pink cardstock. I just love that our colours work so well together; as do both sides of our DSP!
