The card I am sharing today was made for a dear friend that lost a family member.  I tried to make a card with her likes in mind.


Stampin' Up!, Blackberry Beauty, Positive Thoughts, Jackie Beers


Stamps and Paper

My friend likes nature and it’s calming effect.  These stamps are from the Positive Thoughts stamp set.  I love the sentiment and for me that is a very Positive Thought!  The leaves and feather are from the same set as well.  They are stamped using colors I chose to highlight that are in the beautiful DSP.

This DSP is the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper.  It is supposed to be back in stock soon.  I apologize that you cannot order it just now.  However, it fit perfectly with this card theme. So I had to use it.  The unexpected of the paper, at least for me, is the bright pink!  I love it and the Pop it gives.  But there is nothing to not love about this paper.  Other than it not being available right now!


The placement of the stamped layer is a good one.  However, it was done to allow for more of the beautiful paper to show.  I love those owls and there are three of them down the right hand side.  After placing the layer to the left, I decided it worked for not covering the owls, but made for a very pretty layout as well.

  • The card base of Blackberry Bliss is cut 4 1/4 X 11 and scored at 5 1/2
  • The Polished Pink layer is cut 5 1/4 X 4
  •  The DSP layer is cut 5 1/8 X 3 7/8
  • The Polished Pink focal layer is cut 4 3/8 X 2 3/8
  • The White stamped layer is cut 4 1/4 X 2 1/4
