Blackberry Silhouette


I’m pretty sure Blackberry Bliss is going to be my favorite 2014-2016 In Color, although when I first saw the colors I would have bet on Lost Lagoon (blue, you know.)  I’m working on ideas for an In Color swap at convention, and this was my first take:

  • Stamps:  Summer Silhouette, Petite Pairs
  • Color Palette:  Baked Brown Sugar, Blackberry Bliss and Naturals White
  • Accessories:  Gold Bakers Twine, Dazzling Details, Honeycomb TIEF, Stampin’ Dimensionals

You know, I should have used this design with Very Vanilla – it would have been good enough to eat!

The Gold Bakers Twine has a stinky little habit:  the metallic threads untwist rapidly from the twine when it’s cut.  I’ve solved the problem for the most part by tying a pair of quick overhand knots and cutting between them.  It takes just a moment and it saves a lot of frustration.

Do you add a little extra on the inside?  It’s one of the things that sets a hand-made card apart:

You’re likely to see more Blackberry Bliss before we get to convention.  I have more ideas to work out.  It’s just a month away!!!
