So this week's Saturday Blog Hop is all about a fall card featuring our 2014-2016 In Colors. Those colors are Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey, Mossy Meadow & Tangelo Twist. My card for today uses Blackberry Bliss:

I used the For All Things stamp set with Blackberry Bliss Ink. By stamping my leaves twice without re-inking, the ink appears as a dark and a light shade:

Here is my card recipe:
  • Card Base: Blackberry Bliss Cardstock 11" x 4-1/4". Fold in the center at 5-1/2".
  • Layer #2: Bohemian Designer Paper 4" x 5-1/4". Glue to card base.
  • Layer #3: Whisper White Cardstock 3-3/4" x 5". Stamp the leaves using Blackberry Bliss Ink on 3 edges of the card by stamping twice without re-inking. Repeat several times. Add the sentiment  and finish off by adding White Perfect Accents to the background. Glue the cardstock layer to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.
Card Supplies:
  • Stamps: For All Things
  • Inks: Blackberry Bliss 
  • Accessories: White Perfect Accents
  • Tools: Stampin' Dimensionals
