Blackberry Lagoon

Wow, these Thursday's come around quick! It's time for a new challenge from the team at CAS Colours & Sketches and it's a colour challenge, using two of the retiring in-colours from Stampin Up. You don't have to use SU colours, just match them up!
You will notice that my 'white space' isn't white at all! That's OK for CAS cards, well, in my book anyway

These are the colours

I used Blackberry Bliss card stock for the mat and then stamped the sentiment from Happiest Birthday wishes in Versamark and heat embossed with metallic silver. I usually use this sentiment on masculine cards but I wanted to have a feminine touch on this one. I figured the BB and the Lost Lagoon would look good with two step stamping so I chose a flower from Stippled Blossoms.

After fussy cutting the flower I added a few touches of silver sparkles and then used foam pads to both pop up the mat and then the flower

A super quick card, made without having to stamp and restamp because I'd made a hash of it the first time. Happy me!


  1. Non white white space is okay in my book too and especially when it's the deep rich blackberry bliss. Thanks for the reminder that white doesn't have to be. Liz x

  2. Sorry to be late commenting. I love that stamp, Louise and it looks gorgeous in silver. I also love the expanse of Blackberry Bliss, so rich and opulent! Caro x


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love reading them all!
