AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop #10 Berry Burst

Berry Burst with Encircled in Nature plus

Hello. Welcome to Valley Inspirations with Andrea and the Art with Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop.  We are working though the Stampin' Up! colours in alphabetical order, focussing on one colour each week.


This week’s Blog Hop is focussing on a rich pinky mauve called Berry Burst. Berry Burst had been an In Color a number of years ago and during the recent colour refresh it returned as part of the Brights Colour Family. It is a beautiful colour that is wonderful for flowers, berries and so much more.  It coordinates with greens (including Granny Apple Green, Lost Lagoon, etc) and with Bubble Bath, Fresh Freesia and Blackberry Bliss to name but a few. 


Berry Burst is produced in Stampin' Up!'s card-stock, both A4 & 12"x12"Classic Stampin' inks (ink pads re-inkers); Stampin' Write Marker; Stampin’ Blends Combo; Brights Designer Series Paper as well as Full of Life, Unbounded Beauty, Flowering Zinnias, Perennial Lavender, Bright & Beautiful  DSPs; Tinsel Gems Four Pack, Adhesive-backed Sequins Trio, Purple Fine Shimmer Gems; Unbounded Beauty Memories & More Cards; Hooray for Honeycomb kit, Garden of Thanks kit, Your Day To Shine kit; and more.

This card has incorporated Berry Burst as ink, card-stock, Stampin’ Write Marker and gems from the Tinsel Gems FourPack. Berry Burst has been coordinated with Bubble Bath, Lost Lagoon and Basic White. As Berry Burst is a dominant colour it has only needed touches of the colour to make its presence felt.

Dies from the Encircled in Nature die set were used to cut a wreath with berries and multiple pine fronds from Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper. The twigs and pine fronds were water-coloured with Lost Lagoon Classic Stampin’ Ink and the Water-painters, while the little berries on the wreath were water-coloured with Bubble Bath ink. Tiny flowers were cut using a couple of dies from the Citrus Blooms dies and they were water-coloured with Berry Burst ink.

While the water-coloured pieces were drying the Basic White card-stock background was embossed with the gorgeous Dashing Designs 3D Embossing Folder and then mounted onto a slightly larger piece of Berry Burst card-stock. A light splattering was added with a Berry Burst Stampin’ Write Marker.

The “friend” die from the Friends for Life dies was used to die cut the word “friend” from Basic White card-stock that had been layered onto Adhesive Foam Sheet. The word was coloured with Blending Brushes with Bubble Bath and Berry Burst inks.

The second part of the sentiment was taken from the Unbounded Love stamp set. It was white heat embossed on Berry Burst card-stock, White WOW Emboss powder, the Embossing Accessory Kit and a Heat Tool. The Embossing Tool Kit is soooo helpful. Love it. A piece of the Iridescent Striped Trim was cut lengthwise, tied into a bow and added near the “f” with Glue Dots. Final touches were added with Pearlised Enamel Effects Basics to the centre of the tiny flowers together with a scattering of Berry Burst Tinsel Gems from the Four Pack.

A Basic White card-stock panel was mounted on a slightly larger piece of Berry Burst card-stock and adhered inside the card. A sentiment from the Encircled in Nature set was stamped in Berry Burst ink. Some extra pine fronds and flowers were added to give a sense of the card front design. A Basic White C6 envelope was stamped in Berry Burst and Bubble Bath inks using another image from the Encircled in Nature set.

  1. Your chosen colours look lovely together, Andrea. I just love the depth of colour on the watercoloured flowers. The sentiment inside the card is rather special.

    Such a stunning card Andrea and as you say Berry Burst is such a strong colour you have toned it down beautifully yet still featuring it. The two sentiments you have chosen just go beautifully together.
