Blackberry Beauty - International Highlights Blog Hop - November 2021


I'm excited to participate again in Kylie's Monthly International Blog Highlights for November!  Thanks to your votes in October, my card was selected #1!  Wow! 

The theme is "Thank You".  I created this beautiful card featuring the Stampin' Up!® Blackberry Beauty.  I love the rich colours of this suite so I paired it with the Seasonal Swirl Dies for my thank you card.

  9. Stamp sentiment on Rich Razzleberry using Versamark and sprinkle with Copper Embossing Powder.  Heat with Heat Tool
  10. Cut Tag ends in both ends of sentiment
  11. Adhere to the middle of the wreath using Dimensionals.
  12. Cut 6" of Pale Papaya Ribbon and colour using Dark Cinnamon Cider Stampin' Blend
  13. Tie a small bow.  Trim ends and adhere to sentiment using a Glue Dot
  14. Adhere Brushed Metallic Dots
