Colour Combo Blog Hop June 2018

I'm gonna be brutally honest with you, Blackberry Bliss might be one of my least favorite of our current colors. I know, right?!? I totally heard a collective gasp from the Blackberry Bliss fan club.

I can't help it, I'm a last minute stamper (hence the name 'procrastistamper') and Blackberry Bliss is a color you just can't rush. If you don't handle the stamped color like a fragile little princess, it punishes you by smearing all over your project, your hands, your cat, and even some important piece of paper all the way across the room, somehow. And a little goes a LOOOOOOONG way, so I really only used a bit of it on my project.

I have another confession to make...I usually don't use so many different products on one card. But the soft nature of the Petal Pink really called for one of the new, sweet Pearlized Doilies, the detailed outline of the Stitched Framelits, and the baby theme demanded the tiny scalloped outline of the Layering Ovals Framelits. I also used Stampin' Blends (Crumb Cake), as well as Blender Pens (with Petal Pink ink pad) to color in the kanga. I first stamped it in Petal Pink, then did the coloring with Stampin' Blends. Then I lined up the stamp over the original, and stamped it again with Blackberry Bliss to get the darker outline. Then I used the Blender Pens with the Petal Pink ink to do the kanga's tummy.

To finish it off, I used some Petal Pink sequins from the Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins assortment, and the Crumb Cake twine from the Nature's Twine 4-Pack. That twine pack also includes Blackberry Bliss, so you could also make the card using that color twine, with this same layout.
