When it was announced at OnStage in April that Blackberry Bliss was making a return, I got super excited! I absolutely love this color, and I was really sad when it retired a few years back! This is the first chance I’ve had to use it, and I definitely wanted to go with something bold to showcase it. So I made a large daisy with the Daisy Delight stamp set and cut it out with the Daisy Punch. To get the fullness of the daisy, I stamped and punched TWO and then layered them. I also paired the finished daisy with embossed leaves made with the Nature’s Roots Framelits (more on that a little later!)
The very first thing I did when making this card, was to finely spatter Blackberry Bliss ink onto the top layer using an Aqua Painter. It’s hard to see in the pics, but it gives a nice bit of extra detail that’s actually really subtle! While that dried, I made and assembled the daisy and leaves. The leaves were made using two different dies from the Nature’s Roots Framelits. The first is an embossing die that embossed the detail of the leaves without actually cutting them out. The second die does the actual cutting. I used Mossy Meadow cardstock for the leaves (another returning favorite!) as I think it looks so nice with the Blackberry Bliss! Here’s a little bit of a better shot of the daisy and leaves up close:
The detail on the leaves is so pretty! I also stamped the sentiment in Mossy Meadow to coordinate with the leaves and the middle layer of the card. The sentiment is from the Rooted in Nature stamp set, which is available as a bundle with the framelits for 10% off. (Of course, you can get both items separately as well!)
