Purple Posy Creations

 Greetings on another Wednesday Colour Creations night!

Purple Posy Blackberry Bliss Stampin' Up Card

This week we are showing off the delightful Purple Posy - a lovely mauve colour that reminds me of my grandmother whose favourite colour was purple!

I have teamed it up with Blackberry Bliss. I used a cardbase in Purple Posy, onto which I adhered a matt of Purple Posy embossed with Brick and Mortar 3D EF.  I stamped some Daisy Lane daisies with Blackberry Bliss ink onto Basic White cardstock, and punched out with Medium Daisy punch. I also stamped some blossoms with Sweet Strawberry stamp set and punched out with coordinating Small Bloom punch. I used some White Baker's Twine from Snail Mail Combo Pack to give a little whirl of twine under the sentiment from Sweet Strawberry. The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed with White Emboss Powder onto Blackberry Bliss cardstock and punched out with Tailored Tag punch.

Just for a little movement in the card I cut out two of the petals from one of the daisies and adhered to the tag. This also allowed the sentiment to show through and not be covered with petals.

I love this colour - just like Grandma!

Head on over to our host Cathy Procter to find the links to the rest of the team - what fun awaits!


  1. Su the colour reminds me of my grandmother too - isn't it lovely how colours can trigger special memories of special people! Your colour combination is very elegant - Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful Purple Posy project with us all tonight x

  2. I never would have thought to pair these two colours, but it's quite a dramatic colour combo! I agree with Cathy, that the Blackberry Bliss adds elegance to your card. I love the look of flowers on the embossed "wall" background, Su.

  3. Great Card Su, I would never have thought to put these to colours together but they work perfectly.

  4. I like the mix of daisies and strawberry flowers, blackberry bliss looks dramatic with purple posy.

  5. Wonderful card Su and love the brick emboss wall behind the flowers. Also love the colours used and the greeting embossed on BB makes it stand out.

  6. Pretty card, Su, I love the circled twine and Purple Posy looks fabulous with Blackberry Bliss!

  7. A great card and a lovely combination of colours Sujatha.
