Hello everyone and thanks for stopping by the blog today.
I am really excited to be taking part in another one of my lovely upline’s Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlights.
The theme is all things thanks! and it is so much fun to see all the different blogs that take part and get inspired by all the different creators from around the world!
Be sure to pop by Kylie’s blog to see all the other blogs that have taken part, and if you like my card today feel free to give it a vote *wink*
Today I have created a card with one of my favourite suites from the new mini catalogue and that is the Blackberry Beauty suite.
It was rather odd that I gravitated towards this suite as I am not a purple girl!
It was something about the richness of these colours with the beautiful gold that just called out my name!
I had some fun playing with a great technique with this card…scroll down to see more…
powder but really wanted to have a play with some clear embossing powder on some coloured cardstock and adding some ink over the top. I added the beautiful vine image in clear embossing on top of some Melon Mambo cardstock and then with a Blending Brush added some Blackberry Bliss Ink over the top.
This added a really fun effect.
I have then splattered some water over the top which then lifts some of the colour for a fun ‘splattered’ look.
I added one of the gorgeous “Some People are Just Likeable” sentiments in Memento Black on some Basic White cardstock to the card front with a strip of the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper.
I also added some of the coordinating Gold 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon tied in a nice big bow to the card front. I have combined this with some Linen Thread.
Here’s a close up look at the finished card where you can see some of the finished detail.
I have accented with some of the Artistry Blooms Sequins and some spritzing of the Wink of Stella pen for some sparkle.
Here’s a look at the inside of the card which I have kept simple with layers of Blackberry Bliss and Basic White with a small strip of the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper and some Linen Thread with a small sentiment stamped in Memento Black.
I had so much fun participating in this blog hop today.
