Stunning Blackberry Beauty Cards & Important Updates!

Hi Stamping Friends!
The Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper has been so popular this season that it's been backordered more than it's been available. I just checked the status of it again and it looks like it's currently not orderable, but it should be available again around November 8. As with many items these days, the supply chain for many Stampin' Up! products has been disrupted and delays are becoming the norm. I wanted to give you a heads up, so you can be ready to purchase this gorgeous paper as soon as it's back in stock in early November. In the meantime, I have two stunning cards featuring this paper to inspire you!
Pregnancy Updates—Those of you who were looking for my rescheduled LIVE Class today on my Facebook page were met with an announcement from me instead. The truth is, I'm running out of steam in this third trimester of pregnancy and I just can't get things done at the level to which I've become accustom. The doctor assures me that everything is just fine with no concerns, for which I'm thankful! I do, however, have quite a few physical symptoms that are limiting my ability to work right now: insomnia, extremely swollen feet, and numb hands due to pregnancy-induced carpal tunnel. Unfortunately, this has caused me to slow down earlier than I had planned.
►LIVE Classes As of October 22—I've canceled my LIVE Class for this week and I'm not sure when or if I'll be doing anymore LIVE Classes with Kits before I deliver in mid-November. I do not want to continue to commit to a date and then disappoint. I may do some LIVE Classes without offering kits, but it will just depend on how I'm feeling. My top priority will be to stay rested, so I can't promise anything right now. I'll let you know in plenty of time if I decide to go ahead with a LIVE Class.
►Final Countdown To Christmas Class Is Canceled—I had planned to make the Whimsy & Wonder Suite the focus of my final holiday card class in the series this year. After just finishing up the prepping for my third Countdown To Christmas class this past week, I simply can't imagine how I'm going to be able to do it one last time a few weeks from now. So, I've made the difficult decision to cancel my final Countdown To Christmas class this year. I'm so very sorry to disappoint those who were looking forward to this final class and I appreciate your understanding.
►Right Now, I'm Still Working When I Can!It's time for me to take some extra time to take care of me and baby, but rest assured that I'm not going anywhere! I will be working on ways that we can continue to engage and I can continue to inspire your creativity through stamping. It's just going to look a little bit different for the temporary time-being. Stay tuned!
►Modified Maternity Leave—I'm planning what I call a "modified maternity leave" between November 8 and January 31. What this means is that I will not be having regular events, LIVE Classes, daily blog posts, or regular Facebook posts. However, I'm not stepping away from my business completely! I WILL still be touching base with you as much as I can, giving you updates on Stampin' Up! promos, having some of my own specials, sharing creative ideas & tips, and, of course, giving you updates on baby girl. I want to still be accessible to you for ordering and any questions you may have. I thank you in advance for your understanding and continued business during my downtime and I'm looking forward to being back stamping with you regularly early in 2022.

Blackberry Beauty Pretty Pumpkins Card
Ooooh…I absolutely love this card! The beautiful gold accents with the Blackberry Beauty DSP are simply gorgeous!  
Background Basics—Start by cutting a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Gold Foil, then die-cut the Scalloped Contours rectangle from the center of the piece. Mount the larger piece directly onto a Blackberry Bliss card base. Adhere a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series paper over the top of that gold layer. Then, add the scalloped gold foil layer and adhere a 2-5/8 x 4" piece of Cinnamon Cider cardstock over the top of that. 
Pretty Pumpkins—Stamp the Pretty Pumpkins image in VersaMark ink onto Blackberry Bliss cardstock, sprinkle on some gold embossing powder and heatset with a Heat Tool. Die-cut the pumpkin with the coordinating shape from the Detailed Pumpkins Dies. For the intricate pumpkin die-cut, start by attaching a piece of Adhesive Sheet to a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock, the die-cut the pumpkin with the Detailed Pumpkins die. Attach the adhesive-backed pumpkin to the card first, then pop up the embossed pumpkin with Dimensionals.

Sweet Sentiment—Stamp a Pretty Pumpkins sentiment in Blackberry Bliss ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock, hand-cut with Paper Snips and pop up with Dimensionals.
Finishing Touches—Tie a double bow with Gold Trim and attach with a Glue Dot. Add some Gold Metallic Pearls around the background.

Blackberry Beauty Intricate Leaves Card
I'm also loving the simple elegance of this Blackberry Beauty Intricate Leaves card. This one is so gorgeous, too!

Background Basics—Adhere a 4-3/4" x 3-1/2" piece of Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper to a 5" x 3-3/4" piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock, then mount onto a Very Vanilla card base.  
Leaf Label—Die-cut a label shape with the Stockings Dies and die-cut a leaf window from that label with the Intricate Leaves Dies. Stamp a sentiment from the Shaded Summer stamp set in Blackberry Bliss ink at the top of the label. Tie some Linen Thread around the top of the label, then pop up the layer with Dimensionals. Add a couple of Champagne Rhinestone Jewels for a little coordinated sparkle!
