ESAD BLOGHOP! New Blackberry bliss!

Welcome to my step on the ESAD blog hop!!!!
I  couldn't decide which stamp or product to feature so I have a collection of creations in the new in colour: Black Berry Bliss! - Enjoy.
My first project uses the Choose Happiness stampset. It's a lovely set for layering and collaging. 
This is almost a monochrome of Blackberry bliss and white.
 I just love the new ribbon and the vintage lace together. Then I've added some glimmer paper flowers. Three of them are coloured with the rich Razzleberry Blendabilities pen.
My second project is this crumb cake card with the Moonlight DSP (designer series paper) stack. Featuring blackberry bliss ribbon.
I have used the new stamp set called "Tap,Tap,Tap".
Can you see that I have coloured my image with a blender pen in Blackberry bliss ink?
The *note* stamp has a piece of patterned paper on it punched with the Banner punch.
 It needed some bling I thought, so I just sparkled a few diamantes across the page... 
Did you know you CAN use Blendabilities to colour your Rhinestones and buttons too?
Next project is stamped using a gorgeous new set called "Work of Art".
This idea is on Pinterest and You tube (stamp with jodi).
 She uses the brush stroke stamp as a petal for this flower.
I actually like the white negative effect created in the centre of the flower, around the yellow circle.
Then the second card I've just stamped more petals cause "more is more" isn't it?
On this I just love the shadow effect of the second generation, stamped off ink around the edges.
Have you guessed - my favourite Incolour this year is Black Berry Bliss? A deep amazingly beautiful purple that can give you dark to light purples all from the one pinky-purple ink pad or marker.
Look how the gradation of colour changes by the fourth generation of stamping off on the same piece of paper. This card is stamped with the wavy lines from "Chalk lines" and the bike is from Life's adventure.
That's it from me today, your next stop on the hop is... Richelle Fletcher at
