Blackberry Beauty

Welcome to another Stamp Off Challenge with Jackie, Buffy and me.  This week our challenge is to use the Colors Of Fall.  I actually made three cards using the Colors Of Fall.  I wrote an entire blog post for this challenge and then I changed my mind and decided to use this card that I made with the gorgeous Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper.  If you don’t have  this paper, you need to get it.  It is in the 2021 July – December Mini Catalog.  The paper uses the colors Blackberry Bliss, Cinnamon Cider and gold foil. It is just beautiful! You can click on the link below to see a close up of it.

Here is the card I made:

Stampin Up Blackberry Beauty

This card was very simple to make but I think it is very elegant.  I first adhered a piece of the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper to a Blackberry Bliss card base.  After that I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set called Peaceful Moments using Versamark Ink.  I embossed it with Gold Embossing Powder and my Heat Tool.  One trick I learned is if you heat the embossing powder from behind it does not warp the card stock as much but still melts the powder perfectly.    I repeated that step two more times in order to make the sentiment stand out more.  It is really easy to stamp something a few times in the same position using a Stamparatus because if you put the card stock in the same place each time, the sentiment will stamp in the same place.

After embossing the sentiment three times I cut it out using a die from Tailor Made Tags.  This die set cuts out eight different sized tags in two different designs.  I cut out the feather from the die set called Nature’s Thoughts in Gold Foil and adhered it to the tag using Stampin Dimensionals.  Then I tied a piece of gold Baker’s Twine (retired) and adhered the tag to the card.

Now, let’s go see what colors Buffy and Jackie used for their cards.  I am sure they will be beautiful!

  1. Indeed Susan, what a beautiful, elegant card. I tend to be “Tailor made Tags” impaired and this is such a perfect use of those tags. I love the floating leaf with coordinating embossing.
