Friday's Blackberry Bliss

Another simple card this time using Awesomely Artistic stamp set.
 Using the large flower at different angles on the corners, I stamped in Blackberry Bliss.
I used a water brush to blend the ink across the image and added some Pear Pizazz for the leaves.
A little dragonfly and message from the same set to finish.

I hope you found some inspiration in this week's images.

Thursday's Blackberry Bliss

This card was made using the Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper. LOVE IT!
In my opinion it's one of the most beautiful designs EVER!
The papers are all very neutral and on a Very Vanilla background with Basic Black or Sahara Sand to produce the images. 
12 sheets of 12" by 12" double sided papers. A bargain at £10 and they go a very long way.
Anyway, I sponged Blackberry Bliss over the whole image and more over the actual flowers to make them stand out. Just a simple message from You're So Lovely stamp set and the Curvy Corner Trio Punch to finish off.

Wednesday's Blackberry Bliss

This one is completely 'out of the box' for me! Those who know me KNOW
 that I don't do 'grungy' designs!
I used a few stamps from Gorgeous Grunge set on Very Vanilla. Using Lost Lagoon, Blackberry Bliss and Tangelo Twist ink pads and Rich Razzleberry Washi tape from the Bohemian Designer range. This was matted onto Blackberry Bliss and a Very Vanilla card base.

The message is from The Sky is The Limit, one of the FREE stamp sets you can choose when you spend £45 with Stampin' Up! during Saleabration from 1st January to 31st March. This is one of the stamp sets which is only with us until 15th February when it will be replaced by new products.

Blackberrry Bliss

For this card, I have used the Blackberry Bliss as mats to make the other colours 'pop' out off the card.
I have heat embossed the large flower from Birthday Blooms stamp set onto Vellum, Stamped the same image onto White cardstock. Coloured in Daffodil Delight, Delightful Dijon, Pear Pizazz and Old Olive using Blender Pens. Spread Tombow glue all over the image and laid the vellum image over. Wait for it to dry before cutting the flower out.
The background was stamped with flowers from Flowering Fields in Pear Pizazz then embossed with Large Polka Dot TIEF
This is one of the FREE stamp sets you can choose when you spend £45 with Stampin' Up! during Saleabration from 1st January to 31st March
