Bermuda Bay Robot Buddies Kit Cards – Week 8 AWH Colour Creations

Bermuda Bay Robot Buddies Kit Cards – Week 8 AWH Colour Creations

Welcome to week eight of our Art With Heart 2022-23 Colour Creations blog hop! This is a weekly blog hop where we showcase the stunning range of Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order over 12 months and this week we are featuring Bermuda Bay.

Since there is a “Buy One, Get One 50% Off” sale on all of the Stampin’ Up! Kits until 30 June, I couldn’t resist adding two of the adorable Robot Buddies Kids Card Kit to a recent order. The colours in this kit include Bermuda Bay, along with Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green, Night of Navy and Pumpkin Pie.

The kit contains step-by-step instructions for nine cards in three different predesigned projects, but there are so many elements that let you make and design your own cards as well.

  • 2 Classic Stampin’ Spots in Bermuda Bay and Pumpkin Pie
  • 9 card bases and 9 envelopes
  • Robot Buddies Photopolymer Stamp Set
  • 2 printed sticker sheets
  • 1 printed die-cut sheet
  • 1 sheet of adhesive-backed googly eye embellishments
  • Enough adhesive to complete the projects
  • A printed box for storage or crafting on the go

Whenever I receive a kit I always make up one of each of the set designs first before I head “off grid” with my designs!.

Don’t these these robots make you smile! I just love their googly eyes.

This slimline landscape slimline card was created by adding some clouds and hearts die cut using the “Give It a Whirl” dies in Balmy Blue and Pumpkin Pie.

The Bermuda Bay grass was stamped with the Happy Hedgehogs Stamp Set onto a hand cut Granny Apple Green lawn.

And finally, this quick and easy monochrome masculine birthday card was made using the Night of Navy DSP pattern from the inside of the envelopes, spare stickers from the kit (chopped up) and the gear stamps that are included in the kit’s stamp set.

I had so much fun creating with this kit. I’m giving the second one I purchased in the BOGO 50% off sale to my niece as part of her 6th birthday present and I can’t wait to create with her.

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Rosa Leyden – I can’t wait to see what Rosa has made this week!

Stampin’ Up! Surf’s Up! Penguin Playmates DSP Card

Stampin’ Up! Surf’s Up! Penguin Playmates DSP Card

Hello to all my crafting friends! I’m back with another entry for the “G’day Fri’yay’ Card Making Challenges” Facebook group, a fortnightly Card Making Challenge with Aussie Themes.

The theme for this challenge is “Surf’s UP!”. My husband and my sons are all obsessive surfers so I have a stack of surfing stamps and have made many a surfing card in my time, however, for this challenge I wanted to create a surfing card using non-surfing craft products.

Is it just me who gets a kick out of the idea that you might see penguins dressed in scarves and beanies out in the surf?

I know surfing is not the first thing that might spring to mind with the FREE SALE-a-bration DSP Penguin Playmates, but the stance and movement of these penguins reminded me of the way surfers hold their bodies while surfing.

The Misty Moonlight and white striped DSP was used make waves, with one of the Basic Border dies cut into smaller pieces to create whitewash foam on the edge of the waves.

I did use a die from my stash to use some of the Penguin Playmates DSP to create the two larger surfboards. The two smaller surfboards were just hand trimmed from this DSP. The penguin who is bodyboarding was stamped and fussy cut – the others are all fussy cut from the same Penguin Playmates DSP.
The little penguin getting air is my fave – let’s just crown him the “Gabriel Medina” of surfing penguins right now! I’ve used the arrow dies from the Give it a Whirl dies to draw attention to him (I’ve also used the cloud dies from the Give it a Whirl dies). This penguin really is the “coolest” of the penguins, hence the matching sentiment!

Playful Alphabet dies form the “Surf’s Up”, leaving you in no doubt that, believe it or not, these penguins are actually surfing, not skiing. I had so much fun making this card and I hope my surfing penguins put a smile on your face too!

Thanks for visiting my blog today. I’ll be back tomorrow with some more Heart of Christmas inspiration and on Wednesday our weekly AWH Colour Creations Showcase – we are creating projects with Crushed Curry this week.

In the meantime, wherever you are in the world, stay safe, stay calm … and keep on crafting xxx
