I used the Stampin’ Up! Tin of Cards stamp set and a little of the retiring Farmers Market DSP and Blackberry Bliss card stock to create my card to share today.
My card design was inspired by CAS(E) this Sketch #170.
I started by adhering a panel of the Farmers Market DSP (retiring) to the front of a Blackberry Bliss card base (card stock retiring) with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
I stamped the sentiment from the Tin of Cards photopolymer stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of Blackberry Bliss card stock, sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder (available June 1) and heat embossed it.
I stamped the butterfly and leaf images from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set in Blackberry Bliss ink (retired) on the Blackberry Bliss card stock panel, then I cut the panel into four pieces and adhered them with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front.
**Unfortunately, the Blackberry Bliss ink pad has just sold out, but you can create a very similar look by stamping those images in VersaMark Ink and allowing them to dry.
I adhered a single Very Vanilla Candy Dot from the Neutrals Candy Dots (retiring) pack next to the sentiment to finish the card front.
I adhered a strip of the Farmers Market DSP to a panel of Very Vanilla card stock inside the card.

Great take on the sketch. Love the idea for using up the retiring papers.
Thanks Susan, I’m trying to use up as many of the papers as I can…this sketch works perfectly for that! 🙂
LOVE this simple geometric (masculine) card. have hardly used farmers market and dont like blackberry bliss all that much BUT i really really like this rendition!! (like a LOT of your work)
Thanks Jo Ann! It took me a little while of using Blackberry Bliss before I warmed up to it too…but now I’m so sad that it’s retiring! 🙂
What a unique sketch, you did an awesome job interpreting it!! I like the way your “x” goes one way and the direction of the DSP goes the other. And your butterflies are the perfect topper 😉 Sweet!
Thanks Jill! 🙂
Unique and clever interpretation of the sketch – I loved this DSP when I received it but have only used a little bit of it. Great CAS card!
Thanks Melanie! I’m on a quest to use up my huge stash of DSP before the catalog ends…I have piles of it that I have barely used too! 🙂
oh my gosh, that cut in the card stock is so cool, I have to try that, thanks so much for sharing…your card is fabulous
Thanks Sandi! 🙂

I have to admit that sketch challenge stumped me, but wow, how you rocked it! This one is really cool! I will miss blackberry bliss-even though it took me about a year to gro to really like it! 🙂
Thanks Jari! 🙂
This is so pretty, Amy! Wonderful take on the sketch!
