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!!!
One thought on “Blackberry Silhouette”
Very pretty!! Thanks for the tip on the gold twine!
