Berry Blessings for Facebook Live & Snow in Texas

Hello everyone! This blog post was intended to post on Monday 2/15, however we were hit with a winter storm down here in Texas and the past few days have been a little crazy to say the least. Sunday night we received about 6 inches of snow, which may nor sound like a lot to many but snow is VERY rare here in San Antonio. Temperatures dropped to single digits and on Monday, there were widespread power and water outages. Our power was on and off most of the day Monday and at about 4pm, it was OUT completely. We just got our power back at about 4am today making it about 60 hours without power. To say this week has been an adventure is an understatement. Today, we have another round of snow and are really hoping that things don’t worsen again. There are still so many without power and water.  
You came here to see some pretty, stampy things, so let’s get to that! On Sunday, I shared a Sunday Funday Live video and created two cards using the Berry Blessings stamp set and Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper which is a bundle that can be earned for FREE with a qualifying order now through 2/28 during Stampin’ Up!® Sale-A-Bration. 

Please join me over on on my *Stampin’ Anne Facebook Page*, where do Live videos sharing fun Stampin’ Up!® projects. My set time for Facebook Live is Friday at 4:00pm CST, however I have been trying to pop on more often. Be sure to “Like” and “Follow” my Facebook Page so you get the notifications. If you can’t make it Live, you can always watch the replay. Also, I’d like to invite you to join my Stampin’ Anne Facebook Group for more updates, promotions, upcoming classes and exclusive projects. Everyone is welcome!

This is a such a fun bundle! I love the bright and cheery patterns in the paper. This Sale-A-Bration bundle also coordinates with the Sweet Strawberry stamp set and Strawberry Builder Punch in the January - June Stampin’ Up!® Mini Catalog. You can check out that bundle by clicking HERE for more info. Please note, the punch is currently backordered as of 2/18 but is expected to be available very soon. 

All of the measurements for my project are listed below and there is a full supply list at the very end of this blog post.
The first card features the blueberry stamps and coordinating patterns of DSP. The blueberry outline is stamped in Pacific Point ink and the “inside” of the berries are stamped in Balmy Blue ink, stamped-off once. The leaves are stamped in Garden Green ink, the outline full strength and the “insides” stamped-off once. 

Card Measurements and Details: 

  • Pacific Point Card Base: 5-1/2” x 8-1/2”, scored at 4-1/4”
  • Basic White Cardstock: 5-1/4” x 4” 
  • Balmy Blue Cardstock: 5-1/8” x 3-7/8”, emboss using Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder
  • Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper (blueberry pattern): 1-1/4” x 4-7/8”
  • Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper (plaid pattern): 1-3/8” x 4-5/8”
  • Pacific Point Cardstock: die cut the largest circle in the Stitched Shapes Dies

  • Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper (inside card): 1” x 5-1/4”

The second card features the raspberries in the stamp set and another pretty pattern from the DSP. The outlines of the berries and leaves were stamped full strength in Rich Razzleberry and Pear Pizzazz ink. The “insides” of the berries, leaves and steams were also inked in Rich Razzleberry and Pear Pizzazz ink. I stamped them off once on scrap paper and then stamped them on the cardstock so the color was a bit lighter. 

Card Measurements and Details: 

  • Thick Basic White Cardstock: 4-1/4” x 11”, scored at 5-1/2” 
  • Pear Pizzazz Cardstock: 4” x 5-1/4”

  • Basic White Cardstock: Scarp to stamp sentiment and punch out using Everyday Label Punch
  • White baker’s twine and Artistry Blooms Sequins
  • Basic White Cardstock (inside card): 4” x 5-1/4”, stamp raspberry image
  • Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper (inside card): 1” x 5-1/4”
Here is a look inside the card. I simply added a small strip of coordinating DSP and stamped another image from the set.
