Stampin' Addicts New In Color Blog Hop: Blackberry Bliss

http://www.stampinaddicts.com/forums/general-stampin-talk/9516-new-color-blog-hop.html
Welcome to the Stampin' Addict's 2014-2016 In Color Blog Hop.  We are focusing on the five new colors that we get to play with for the next two years.  Technically, this is the first stop on the hop.  However, if you started in the middle, than you probably arrived from Debra Bergin's take on Blackberry Bliss.  She is very talented and I always enjoy the project she makes.  All the blogs are linked together in a circle, but if you get lost along the way, you can always go to Stampin' Addicts for a complete list of blogs on the hop.

I am also featuring Blackberry Bliss today.    My two favorite of the In Colors are Hello Honey and Lost Lagoon.  I keep reaching for them over and over.  But I wanted to force myself to work with a color I am not naturally drawn too, hence the Blackberry Bliss.  (Although you will see I still used a lot of Hello Honey in my projects).

First, a card featuring some new stamp sets: Work of Art and Bravo.   I had this idea in my head, put it on paper and then saw a similar card on Pinterest this week.  I suppose great minds think a like.

Colors: Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey and Whisper White.  Stamps: Work of Art, and Bravo.  Accessories: Blackberry Bliss 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon, Rhinestone Jewels. 
 Second, another card this time featuring the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack and the new Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack:

Colors: Sahara Sand, Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey and Whisper White.  Stamps: Perfect Pennants and Gorgeous Grunge.   Big Shot: Pennants Framelits.  Punches: Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.  Accessories: Blackberry Bliss 3/8" Stitched Ribbon, Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack.

 And last, a cute little treat pouch similar to the one that Donna Griffin featured at the New Catalog Kickoff Party.  Notice the purple Vintage Facet Button?  I colored it with the darkest of the Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities:


Colors: Blackberry Bliss, Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White.  Stamps: Regarding Dahlias.  Big Shot: Pennant Framelits, and Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Punches: Hexagon and Scallop Edge. Accessories: Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape, Vintage Faceted Buttons, Whites Baker's Twine, Mini Metallic Clothespins.
Thanks for stopping by today.  If you liked what you saw, please leave a little blog love in the comment section below and/or pin the projects to Pinterest.  Next stop on the tour is Yapha Mason's take on Hello Honey.  Her projects are always fabulous!  See you next time!

Fantastic projects! I love that first one especially. You really showed how rich and vibrant this color is! And we used the same DSP -- great minds think alike!

Beautiful projects Paula! I love them they just pop and those two colors together are fantastic! I really like your first card a lot :)

All 3 of these are winners! Did you ink up the embossing folder on the last project to get two toned stripes? It looks awesome, whatever you did :)
