Stampin' Up! Berry Burst


Welcome to a Week 10 of the Colour Creations Showcase blog hop. This week we continue our journey through the remaining Stampin' Up! core colours, working in alphabetical order, with this week's feature colour being Berry Burst. Berry Burst is a member of the Brights group of colours and is between Moody Mauve and Petunia pop on the colour wheel.

This week the feature bundle is the beautiful Layers of Beauty, which consists of a stamp set, coordinating dies and a set of decorative masks. Using all of these elements together makes it easy to make beautiful creations. To coordinate with Berry Burst, I have used Bubble Bath and Blackberry Bliss. For the greenery I have used Lemon Lime Twist and Old Olive. I have to confess this is actually one of the first times I have used masks in a layering sense.


For the card base a piece of Brights 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper in Berry Burst has been adhered to thick white card. Next  another piece of white card embossed using the Distressed Tile 3D Embossing folder has been added. The photo below shows the embossing in more detail.

Next comes the fun! Firstly the large floral image was stamped using Versamark and then embossed in White. Blending Brushes were then used to apply the ink to the image. Starting with Bubble Bath, then Berry Burst and finally Blackberry Bliss for the flowers. For the greenery, Lemon Lime Twist was used first followed by Old Olive. 

The floral image was then die cut using the largest die from the Layers of Beauty dies and then popped up using Dimensionals. 

One of the Country Flowers dies was used to die cut a few flowers using Berry Burst card, and Iridescent Pearls Basics added to the flower centres.

The sentiment is from the Unbounded Love stamp set and has been stamped in Berry Burst ink on white card. The sentiment panel and the frame have both been die cut using two of the Unbounded Love dies. Finally a few Tinsel Gems in Berry Burst have been added.

For the inside of the card part of the large floral image was stamped in Black Memento and then coloured using blending brushes and the ink colours mentioned earlier. 

Next in tonight's blog hop is the talented Vicki Boucher. I look forward to seeing her lovely creation this week.

  1. Utterly gorgeous, T! I love this big floral image embossed in white, and it looks particularly beautiful with the colours you've used. The sweet die-cut flowers are a cute addition, and the striped DSP really helps the white embossed panel pop. Beautifully done.

  2. Oh my goodness, Theresa the colours on this card really pop! Just stunning!

  3. A gorgeous card Theresa. I love your colour combo and you have used them beautifully with the stencils. The die cut leaves and flowers are wonderful additions. All so gorgeous. xxx

  4. Really gorgeous Theresa, I haven't played with my masks as yet.

  5. Teresa, this is so gorgeous and feminine and I just dore that you have embossed it in White and then coloured with the blending brushes. The DSP is the perfect choice too!
