Stampin’ Up! Blackberry Bliss Cards  

Stampin’ Up! Blackberry Bliss Cards  

Welcome to week eleven of our Art With Heart 2024-25 Colour Creations blog hop!

This week we’re featuring Blackberry Bliss, a very dark berry colour that has recently moved from the Regals family to the Neutrals.

It was a great opportunity to crack open my new Expressions of Kindness Kit.

My colour scheme is the colours included in this kit: Blackberry Bliss, gold foil, Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow, Petunia Pop, Pretty Peacock, Wild Wheat.

The Expressions of Kindness Kit is such great value for money. It comes with a full set of instructions, an acrylic block as well as everything you need to make 8 cards, 4 each of 2 designs.
* Expressions of Kindness Photopolymer Stamp Set
* Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Spot
* Roll of white ribbon
* 8 printed card bases
* 8 printed envelopes
* Folded card: 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ (14 x 10.8 cm)
* Printed die-cut images and gold foil labels
* Adhesive-backed gold sparkle gems
* Adhesive dots and Stampin’ dimensionals

Here are the two card designs and envelopes made as per the kit instructions. The envelopes really are as stunning as the card bases!

Then I went rogue and chopped up one of the gold foiled card bases to make two extra cards on Blackberry Bliss card bases. The design of these card bases extends to the back of the card as well as the front.

This is the “simple stamping” card I made using the back of the card base.

I stamped the sentiment directly only the patterned card and the thistle stamp onto the Blackberry Bliss flowers, adding a layer of Lost Lagoon card stock and some of the gold sparkly gems included in the kit.

My second card variation used the front of the card base and a spare sentiment label included in the kit. Can you guess how I made the gold sprigs?

This is the leftover gold foil in the kit.

I used my Bough Punch to punch out sprig pieces from this gold foil.

I love this gorgeous kit and I know I’ll be using the stamp set on other projects as well as on the cards included in the kit.

Now it’s time to hop in over to our next participant, the lovely Kate Morgan – I can’t wait to see what Kate has made this week!
