I've entered another Challenge with The Paper Players.  Here is the sketch:
I have found that I am stamping more when I enter a Challenge, which means I have more to share with you!  Let's get started.

Whisper White Thick - 11 x 4-1/4, score at 5-1/2
Blackberry Bliss - 4-5/8 x 3-1/8 and 3-5/8 x 2
DSP - 4-1/2 x 3
Whisper White - 3-1/2 x 1-7/8, scrap at least 2-3/4 x 3

Basic Instructions
  • Ink wood "slice"? stamp in Blackberry Bliss, stamp off twice and onto WW scrap.
  • Stamp "... wonderful" greeting in Versamark on top and emboss with silver embossing powder.
  • Die cut embossed piece with third smallest oval Framelit (roughly 2-1/4 x 1-1/4).
  • Ink tall tree stamp in Blackberry Bliss and stamp off once then onto WW 3-1/2 x 1-7/8 piece, centering horizontally (as shown).  Stamp tree again, without reinking for tree in background and again, without reinking, for another background tree.  If you need to reink for last tree, do so and stamp off three times, first.
  • Adhere DSP and WW onto Blackberry Bliss mats.  Adhere DSP section to base a little off center horizontally.  Pop up narrow WW piece with trees on Dimensionals.
  • Add oval piece with Dimensionals (and a Glue Dot where ir overlaps the trees layer.

Product List 


  1. What a lovely card Sue; I almost used this suite myself when I made my card and I love how you combined the various elements. The shadow-effect stamped-off tree is really effective and I love how you used the tree rings to add background detail to your sentiment oval. The silver embossing ties in with your leaf embellishment and the whole thing works beautifully to showcase those natural elements. Thanks for joining us over at The Paper Players this week!

  2. Hi Sue, I am a native Hoosier! I grew up in Greenfield! Your card is so pretty! The DSP is so lovely and the tree rings is gorgeous! The silver embossing and leaf ties it all together! Thank you for joining us at The Paper Players this week! XX
