Week 13 - Colour Creations Blog Hop - Crumb Cake

 


This week for our Colour Creations Blog Hop we are looking at one of our the neutral colours, Crumb Cake. It is such a favourite of many and I love how you can put this colour with absolutely everything or leave it as the focal point.

Today I have created a card with texture and layers and paired Crumb Cake with my favourite colour just because I could Blackberry Bliss. I got out the Blackberry Beauty Suite from the July-December Mini and added a few little touches from that suite to my Crumb Cake card.

For this card I have also used Early Espresso to make all the Crumb Cake elements pop. This card is full of scrumptious layers of Crumb Cake. The card Base and then the first layer is a piece of Tidings of Christmas DSP. The centre piece is a piece of crumb cake which has been embossed with the leaf pattern from the Greenery Embossing folder pack.

Also on that layer you can see some spatter of crumb cake ink from my Stampin' Write Marker. You can also see the bling here and in the opposite bottom corner they are the gorgeous, love them, you need them, go put them in your shopping cart now, Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots that come in brass, gold and copper. These are the gold one!

Over the top of this I have used the stunning Blackberry Beauty DSP and the frame is from the Blackberry Beauty Ephemera pack which I have popped up on mini dimensionals. The gold flowers and foliage is also from the ephemera pack.  I decided not to use the Gold Shimmer ribbon that goes with the suite but to use the Gold Fine Art ribbon as it has more of the Crumb Cake look and gold speckles through it.

The words and I have stamped from the Beauty of Tomorrow Stamp set in Crumb Cake on Basic White card and fussy cut them out and double layered them onto mini dimensionals and the bird is die cut out using the Beautiful Leaves Dies that comes in a bundle with the stamp set or all together when you buy the suite.

Hope you have enjoyed my layer upon layer of texture and dimension of Crumb Cake and a bit of Blackberry bliss thrown in there as well.

So many beautiful details Sharon, lovely card

Cathy Proctor said...

Sharon, you are hilarious! "you need them, go put them in your shopping cart now" Well, yes, Ma'm, I will do as instructed, especially after you've bought so many beautiful elements together in your sumptuous card!

CHRISTINE BLAIN said...

I know your favourite parts of this card are all the sumptuous Blackberry Bliss bits, but I really love the embossed Crumb Cake panel, with ink splattering, and Brushed Metallic Dots on it! Just lovely.

Kate Morgan said...

Oh Sharon, we can seew why you love Blackberry Bliss, you use it so well in your projects. I love how you have used this Ephemera Pack with all the lovely layers of Crumb Cake, and Gold accents. Yes, those Brushed Metallic Dots are a must have!

Rachel Palmieri said...

Doesn't the Crumb Cake set off Blackberry Bliss so beautifully? LOL. I like all you additional bits added to a very textured card, and the ribbon is a great choice I think.

Ros said...

You are right, there is so many scrumptious layers on this card!

Rosa Leyden said...

Your card is really lovely Sharon and have used the various bits from gorgeous DSP to embossing perfectly.

Andrea said...

Such a great card Sharon. Yes, you have scrumptious layers and textures on your beautiful card. You are right - I do need the Ephemera pack and all the other goodies. So I have already placed my order and am waiting patiently (sort of) for my much delayed BBB. COVID has a lot to answer for. Thank you for your inspiration. Xxx

Tina said...

Such a gorgeous card, Sharon! The colour combo and embellishments add a real feel of luxury to the card.

Michele Taylor said...

Your layers certainly are scrumptious Sharon. I love that you paired Crumb Cake and that lovely embossing folder with the Blackberry Beauty suite.

The paper in this pack is just gorgeous but I struggle to use them in someway in a card but you have showcased the paper beautifully Sharon. Layer upon layer upon layer .
