Good morning, y’all! It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! We’ve got a sketch challenge to work with and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table! I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!
I don’t know about y’all – well, I do, but….that’s such a great way to start, right?!? 😂 – but I LOVE the Beauty of Tomorrow Suite in the Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog! So…I saw a color challenge that was perfect for the Blackberry Beauty Specialty DSP and decided to start from there and use more goodies from the suite – like the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set, Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack and the Gold 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon. Take a look-see:
And here’s our sketch (I turned it up on its end).
And this is the Paper Players color challenge that got me rolling! My Any 4th Color is Cinnamon Cider. 🙂
I started with a piece of Blackberry Beauty Specialty DSP that I matted on the bottom portion of a Cinnamon Cider mat. I embossed a smaller piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock in the Timeworn 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it on the top of the mat to make the card front.
Using a couple of Glue Dots on the back, I adhered a length of 1/4″ Gold Shimmer Ribbon around the “seam”.
TIP: my friend – and member of the CNCK team! – Terry Lynn Bright – shared a fun Glue Dot tip with us at our team meeting this past weekend. She ties a short length of ribbon around her Glue Dot roll and that lets her access the Glue Dots easily AND “corrals” the roll! Thank you, TL!!
I cut a piece of Cinnamon Cider with a die from Tasteful Labels – embossed it in the Timeworn 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.
Using some more Glue Dots, I wound a length of the Gold Shimmer Ribbon into a “bow”.
Then I pulled some fun floral die cuts from the Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack and adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.
I popped the large acorn die cut – from the Ephemera Pack – onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On Cinnamon Cider, I stamped the Beauty of Tomorrow sentiment in Polished Pink. I masked off part of the sentiment with a sticky note so that I could divide the sentiment. Then I fussy cut each part and adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.
I added some Polished Pink 2021-2023 In Color Jewels – here and there and the card front was done!
On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Beauty of Tomorrow in Polished Pink on a Basic White panel. In the corner, I stamped the small floral in Cinnamon Cider and colored the teensy berries with my Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Write Marker. Then I nestled a little Polished Pink gem amongst the flowers.
I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat and into my Polished Pink card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got a repeat of the Beauty of Tomorrow florals on the front…
…and a little more Blackberry Beauty Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I think the color palette of the Blackberry Beauty Specialty DSP is so gorgeous – rich and Fall-ish and wunnermus, don’t you? The Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set is a perfect foil with some of the most beautiful fonts that I’ve seen. And Ephemera Packs like this one are kind of a new thing for us at Stampin’ Up! but…I am loving them! Such quick, easy and perfect decorations for your projects.
I hope you like!
