Challenging Myself with the Berry Blessings Bundle

In my last post I shared several of the cards that my group of stampers made in response to a Card Challenge. You can see that post here:  Sharing a Card Challenge.  I needed a little “card therapy”, myself, so I appealed to my “craft courier” (aka my husband) to bring a bunch of my supplies so I could set up a little spot in our dining room (no stairs required to get here) so I could do a little stamping. I used the same card sketch and created this card: I used one of the new products in the SALE-a-bration catalog that you can receive for FREE with a $100 product purchase….The Berry Blessings Bundle.  This FREE items included the Berry Blessings Stamp Set AND the  Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper.
Berry Blessings Bundle
Berry Blessings Stamp Set + Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper
Like all of Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Paper, these are double-sided….which means that both sides are patterned and most often one side coordinates with the opposite side.  For my card, the leafy pattern on the bottom is on one side of the paper and the berry design is on the other. 38FCC715-C3AA-4818-815B-C58BDB16C6E6 I did add a few cardstock mat layers to help separate the pieces as well as putting the top sentiment layer on dimensionals.  I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then did a little simple coloring  with Real Read and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends. C74F8AE0-3BB7-42C7-89D6-CEBD7D6BD440 However if you look closely at the stamp set, you’ll see that you don’t need to color at all!  These stamps have two stamps for the leaves and berries…one for the outline detailing the stems and leaves and another shaded stamp just for adding color. If you’d like to try this card, these are the supplies that you will need:
  • Berry Blessings Bundle from the SALE-a-bration catalog (Berry Blessings Stamp Set + Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper
