I miss you - Blackberry Beauty - Casually Crafting Design Team Blog Hop - October 2021

Hello and welcome back. Today I have a card for the Casually Crafting Design Team October 2021 Blog Hop. This month we have a Sketch Challenge. Now I will admit I was a little stumped initially when I saw this sketch but when I looked at the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Papers, I realised it would fit perfectly with this sketch. It also gave me the opportunity to use the owl in the Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack which I had been saving for the perfect project.

So who are we?

The Casually Crafting Design Team are a group of Independent Stampin' Up!® demonstrators from around the world that want to share our love of crafting with you all. We all love simple and easy cards, so you will see cards that are ideally suited for beginners and casual crafters. Sometimes we will also be showing stepped up versions for the more avid crafter.

We will sharing what we love every 3rd Saturday of the month. Make sure to check out the rest of the Design Team's creative projects using the links below. 

For this month, I decided to share a card using the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Papers and Ephemera Pack, combined with the Gold Paper (from the Gold & Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Paper pack), Simply Elegant Trim and a sentiment from the Art Gallery stamp set . 


- Use a piece of Early Espresso card A4/Letter cut in half and folded. Mat with a smaller piece of Gold Metallic Specialty card and attach with Stampin' Dimensionals. Layer two coordinating pieces of the Blackberry Beauty DSP attaching them with Liquid Glue. 

- Cut a strip of Gold Metallic Specialty paper and mat with a strip of Blackberry Beauty DSP. Attach the strips to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. Attach the owl from the Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack with Stampin' Dimensionals.  

- Stamp the sentiment from the Art Gallery stamp set using Versamark Ink onto a piece of Basic White. Heat emboss with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder. Attach to a strip of Gold Metallic Specialty Paper and then to a label from the Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack. Add some Gold Simply Elegant Trim to the card and attach the sentiment over the top with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Add some Genial Gems to finish the card.
