Stampin' Up! Blackberry Bliss


Welcome to a Week 11 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 Blackberry Bliss. Strangely enough but Blackberry Bliss is a member of the Neutrals group of colours and is a very deep Violet colour, between Gorgeous Grape and Moody Mauve on the colour wheel.


 This week the bundle I have chosen to feature is Flowers of Beauty which consists of a stamp set with matching dies. To coordinate with Blackberry Bliss I have chosen Fresh Freesia and for the greenery I have chosen Mossy Meadow and Old Olive. 

For the card base a piece of the "reverse" side of a piece of Thoughtful Journey has been stamped using one of the floral outlines and Blackberry Bliss ink. 

The White card base has been embossed using the Cute Crochet 3D Embossing Folder. Check out the lovely detail in the photo below.

For the floral spray, pieces of Blackberry Bliss and Old Olive card have been die cut using dies from the Flowers Of Beauty dies. For the top sprig White card was stamped using Old Olive and Mossy Meadow inks and 2 step stamps from the Flowers of Beauty stamp set, for the greenery. For the flowers on top of the greenery, Blackberry Bliss and Fresh Freesia inks were stamped using the 2 step stamps also from the Flowers of Beauty stamp set. a little bit of Wink Of Stella was added to the flower centres.

The sentiment is from the Online Exclusive stamp set, Everyday Greetings, and has been white embossed on Blackberry Bliss card that has been die cut using one of the Unbounded Love dies.

For the bow, one piece of White Bakers Twine from the Essentials pack has been coloured using a Blackberry Bliss Stampin Blend, and the other has been left White. 

Finally a few Purple Fine Shimmer Gems have been added.


For the card inside, a leftover strip of the Thoughtful Journey was stamped with the floral outline stamp and Blackberry Bliss ink, like the card front. The floral image was stamped using Fresh Freesia ink for the base and Blackberry Bliss ink for the outline. The leaf image was stamped using Old Olive ink. Both images were die cut using dies from the Flowers of Beauty dies.

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

  1. Theresa, I love that you stamped on the DSP for the background, and that I had to look up the stamp set and dies to see what it looked like in the catalogue - lovely use of Blackberry Bliss, and great marketing,

  2. Theresa I love your placement of the floral sprig and colours chosen to complement the pretty crochet embossing.

  3. Lovely use of colour on this beautiful card, T. Mossy Meadow and Blackberry Bliss are both so dark and dramatic, and Fresh Freesia and Old Olive help tone them down a bit. I love the addition of the Purple Shimmer Gems, and the dual-coloured twine bow.

    What a lovely sympathy card Theresa, the Crocheted Embossing folder looks beautiful in the background

  5. Great choices of colours to lighten blackberry bliss and mossy meadow so they don't look as dark.
