Berry Bliss One of A Kind


My favorite new Designer Series Paper is definitely Berry Bliss-well, this week anyway. Look at the colors. They just explode: Purely Pomegranate, Pretty In Pink, Close To Cocoa and Chocolate Chip-sounds and looks yummy.

This card is inspired by so many great designs I've seen blogging and visiting Splitcoast Stampers. To make this card start with a Close to Cocoa card base and layer strips of Berry Bliss Designer Series Paper accented with a slip of knotted Close to Cocoa 1/4 inch grosgrain ribbon and adhere to the card base. Stamp the large flower from the One of a Kind set in Purely Pomegranate and the smaller flower trio in Purely Pomegranate and then again in Close to Cocoa. Stamp the sentiment in Close to Cocoa and the single 1/2 inch flower in Purely Pomegranate. Don't worry about cutting out all of these little flowers. Stampin' Up! has a brand new punch which coordinates with One of a Kind-the Boho Blossoms punch. Next punch out the sentiment using the Designer Label punch and layer onto a Purely Pomegranate 1 3/8 inch circle. There is a bit of hand trimming for the large flower, but you can save time by punching in between each point by using the 3/4 inch circle punch as shown here in this picture. For the focal embellishment, I layered the large flower with a Cocoa flower from the Boho Blossoms trio and topped it off with the 1/2 inch flower and the Build-A-Brad. Here is a close up of the Build-A-Brad. Did you know that any 1/2 inch image can be used in the Build-A-Brad? Even better, you can just punch anything out anything with the 1/2 inch punch and make a brad from it. The possibilities are endless.
Thanks for visiting. Happy Stampin'! EdieB
