Welcome to Week 4 of Claire’s Art With Heart Team Colour Creation Showcase!
This week we have the heavenly Blackberry Bliss to steal your soul!
It's once of my favourite colours for it's richness and warmth. When I saw this colour on our list for week 4, I instantly thought of a gorgeous new kit that Stampin’ Up! have just released. Mine had only just arrived in the mail, so I couldn’t wait to open it and see just how well it did go with Blackberry Bliss so I could use it for this colour showcase.
It’s the GORGEOUS POSIES KIT and Blackberry Bliss goes beautifully, complimenting the soft feminine colours and images. This kit has an absolutely gorgeous colour scheme and a splash of shiny gold. Oh! I DO love it!
The kit has really lovely, but quite basic cards - simple enough for beginners to enjoy making, but with a lot of wow factor. However, those of you who know me well, know that 25 years of stamping means when I see a kit like this, I want to step it right up and use the pieces to create something that will make even the very experienced crafters want to buy the kit!
I had in mind to start with Twisted Easel cards, but I’ve made so many of them over the years, I wasn’t feeling challenged enough. But I googled easel cards anyway to see what might come up and found this amazing project by Jan B.
A Triple easel card! She has such easy to follow clear instructions and you can actually fast forward through bits of the video just to pull out the relevant measurements and where to put the glue.
So, what does it look like made with the Gorgeous Posies Kit?
Despite all the folds and layers, the easel cards still fold flat and small enough to fit in our standard envelope.
I used two of the card fronts out of the kit along with 2 die cut labels and a small die-cut printed flower.
I used the stamp set to stamp an extra large flower in Blackberry Bliss and some extra leave. The greetings were also stamped with Blackberry Bliss and as you can see, I used Blackberry Bliss for the base card and the square layering pieces.
The other touch of Blackberry Bliss on the card is on the rhinestones - I coloured them with the Blackberry Bliss Dark Stampin' Blend! So good - I truly love how we have all these co-ordinating products.
