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

This week we’re featuring Berry Burst, a beautiful berry colour from the Brights family. I love this colour with Night of Navy and other shades of blue, however this is the colour combination I settled on for my card this week.

I’m away from home for a few days and was only able to take limited paper craft supplies with me to make my card. Let’s just say it was something to do with the number of wetsuits and surfboards in the card. And okay, maybe also a tiny bit related to the sewing machine and quilt supplies that also accompanied us on our trip!

So whether we blame Pete or me, this week I have made a simple stamping card that only uses a stamp set, paper snips, ink pads, embellishments and a pack of note cards with envelopes. There is no die cutting, punches or embossing. And it was super fun to make!

I love this new stamp set called the Cake Fancy Stamp Set. It has so many tiny little cake decorating elements to play with, just like decorating a cake.

I forgot to bring Berry Burst cardstock with me so I made my own by swiping my Berry Burst stamp pad over a piece of a notecard. The hairdryer in a our caravan park cabin was perfect for drying it – I’m sure it had never been used this way before!

I stamped multiple stamps in the different ink colours to see how the ink colours I’d bought away with me looked together.

Poor old Petal Pink was rejected as I decided on a monochromatic colour combo instead, stamping an Early Espresso cake stand, ribbon and leaves; Crumb Cake leaves: Blackberry Bliss bottom cake layer, flower and piped icing; Berry Burst middle cake layer and flower: Petunia Pop top cake layer and flower.

It was super easy to fussy cut the flowers and leaves for the top of the cake – they add a wonderful dimension to the card.

The sentiments were stamped right onto the cake layers in Early Espresso. I love the effect this gives to the card!

Purple Fine Shimmer Gems add a touch of bling and I stamped a notecard envelope flap to match.

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