Welcome to week nine of our Art With Heart 2022-23 Colour Creations blog hop! This is a weekly blog hop where we showcase the stunning range of Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order over 12 months and this week we are featuring Blackberry Bliss.
There are some gorgeous products retiring this week on June 30, including the New Horizons Suite. I’m using three products from this suite today: the New Horizons 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, Horizon Dies and the On the Horizon Stamp Set.
The New Horizons 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper is a wonderful paper for creating scene cards and Blackberry Bliss is one of the many colours in this paper.
Blackberry Bliss looks amazing with Fresh Freesia, so I’ve used these two colours together for my card bases and cardstock layers to create three cards that show how the New Horizons DSP makes it super easy to create cards for all levels of crafting ability.
My simple stamping card for beginners simply uses paper and ink – Blackberry Bliss ink stamped onto the DSP. The “Breathe” sentiment, flock of birds and reed stamps are all from the “On the Horizon” stamp set.
Card two steps it up for intermediate crafters who have a die cutting machine, however the layered sentiment could easily be cut with paper snips or a paper trimmer for crafters who don’t own a die cutting machine.
I’ve uses one of the stitched banner dies from the new Stylish Shapes Dies and curled up the ends to add even more dimension. Once again, all of the stamps are from the “On the Horizon” stamp set.
Card three is for avid crafters, using the Horizon Dies to die cut sections of the New Horizons DSP to create a layered collage mountain scene, with Blackberry Bliss card stock trees.
The sentiment is heat embossed with white emboss powder onto Blackberry Bliss card stock and layered using the Stylish Shapes banner dies. Linen thread is wrapped around the horizon and tied into a single bow.
These cards are all so easy to make because New Horizons DSP really does do all the heavy lifting for you!
