Eastern Beauty painted Berry Burst

Eastern Beauty – have you ever associated this with Berry Burst? You may not have heard of this colour label. In the Stampin’Up! world it refers to a deep shade of pink in the colour spectrum and it is one of the “new 2017 – 2019 In Colours”. What this means in the world of Stampin’Up! is that this colour is available for two years before the range changes.

This morning I caught a glimpse of the beautiful deep pink shaded Hibiscus in my garden and I had to make a card using the Berry Burst Stampin’Up! ink and coloured cardstock. This is a perfect match with nature and it is amazing how certain colours can just communicate the perfect look for your creation.

Did you also know that the Hibiscus is the national flower of multiple countries in the world, including Haiti,  and Malaysia. It’s also used in various teas in India and is traditionally worn by Tahitian and Hawaiian girls.  One species of Hibiscus, known as kenaf (Hibiscus cannabinus), is extensively used in paper-making. This is so appropriate for our field of papercrafting.
