Hello Blackberry Bliss Trio

 Barbara Williams / Blackberry Stippled Blossom

In keeping with the two prior cards, I want to again showcase the versatility and beauty of Blackberry Bliss, you must excuse my meagre writing tonight, have lost my post twice.   As the stamp set is a two step, I used it to show of how you can get a second and third generation stamping.  Love how it turned out.  Don’t forget to come see what we make on Sunday, as its our next blog hop.

Thanks for dropping by.

INKspired Sketch Blog Hop 3 – Tag those Poppies

Hello friends, if your landed on here, you have most likely come from Teneale Williams- and this is our third Blog Hop for the INKspired Sketch Blog Hop Team.  I know you will have enjoyed her card again this week as much as I do.

This is the Sketch that was the inspiration for todays card.  Below is mine.

This weeks sketch was basically using a tag, I have some 300 tags already cut and ready to go, so why reinvent the process I thought to myself.  I love the Tag punch that Stampin’ Up! brought out in the last catalogue, makes it so easy to have tags on hand which you could make into tags or book marks.  Yeap I am organised for the.

I so love Blackberry Bliss and wanted to show you some of the variants in colour that your able to get using different ways of apply the inks.

I just inked up part of my Pleasant Poppies stamp, opps that’s slightly wrong, I had cut it into three so I choose one of the stamps and using my blender pens, inked the stamp up and after stamping id on my tag, then used a blender pen to blend the colour.  Love the effect, hope you to too.

I cut out another set of tags to go behind the stamped one little fiddle but so worth it.  Added lace, twine and popped it on the card.  Hope you enjoy this weeks blog hop.  Don’t forget to leave us all a short comment, everyone enjoys comment.

Want a Flower Patch?

The new catalogue of Stampin’Up brought to us some wonderful stamp and coordinating dies.  One of them that I love is the one called Flower Patch.

One of our team members Janelle Taylor brought some cards that she had made for her ladies with sets for the team to make and this was mine.  I love what she has made and I then used it with my ladies at my class.

INKspired Sketch Blog Hop 2 Congratulations

Hello friends, if your landed on here, you have most likely come from Teneale Williams-  and this is the second Blog Hop for the INKspired Sketch Blog Hop.  I know you will have enjoyed her card and I welcome you back to view our cards again this fortnight.

What have you been doing for World Card making day?  Some of the INKspired group grouped for a afternoon of Stamping and Blending, then Pizza, music and more stamping.  The whole days has been a rather relaxing day one of lots of card making, eating and stamping with some loud, laughing and bold comments.

Sketch 2

This is the challenge layout for this week and I really wished I had payed more attention to the sketch, instead of having this creation in my head.  Big mistake, I had half created this amazing card because in my head it was just a bit across the top and a couple of tags hanging down.  Right, well that’s what I had thought.  Imagine my surprise when Teneale say it and goes, “What are you doing, that wasn’t the sketch for this week, how will you pull all of that together?”

Yeap, I had started doing this amazing card using the Striped Scallop Die which I love.  For anyone who doesn’t know it, it goes on your card to make a landscape card, not portrait.  Back to the drawing board for me, come see what I have made.

By Barbara Williams | Stampin Up! | INKspired Sketch 2

Using Shelli’s stamp set “I love Lace” as a background, I versa marked it then embossed with Clear embossing power on Blackberry Bliss, one of the new in colours.  I had originally used the I love lace stamp inked up with Blackberry Bliss and stamped on whisper white cardstock for the top panel and I wanted to use some butterflies on the front.  Long story short, I didn’t like it and in the bin they went.  I was still able to ring in the Striped Scallop Die to form the scallop on the bottom white along with some beautiful silver ribbon.  I then stamped and embossed the word Congratulations in Silber embossing powder above the ribbon and after attaching a beautiful button, they finally shredded some of the ribbon to for the downward hang to represent the idea of something hanging on underneath.

Girls, did I get it right now?  Hope so.  Mum sorry about the butterflies, I know that they were to represent you, I can see them, can you.  Loved your advise, miss you.

I had been playing with a old but very lovely stamp set, with my thought on it being used for my next blog hop, until disaster happened and when I looked at the sketch I realised I had been making a landscape one and not portrait.

I must admit I haven’t finished it as yet, half made.  I will however finish it and post over the weekend for you to see.  Its very bright and colourful, just like me.

What are you doing for World Card Making Day?  I am co hosting a PMS night which promises to be a blast and everyone will be bringing their unfinished projects to finish.  Guess what? that’s when I will finish the card.

In the meantime, hope you like the card up above.
