Todays challenge is tohave some portion of your paper torn. So, tear it up!When I started stamping years ago,I would often tear my paper. Love the look, but just NEVERremember to do it anymore, so we’re doing it today!!! Any kind of tornpaper, anywhere, as long as there is torn paper on your project. No other rules just have fun! But remember, the theme of my challenges in generalis to *stamp simply*, so lets just keep that in mind!
Remember when you upload to use the keyword above, followed by a comma.Please come back here to post (as a comment) that youve played, and provide a linkso I can check out your card right away. You can find all cards uploaded for this challenge by clicking Gallery Submissions Here.

This is the sample I made. It’s the masculine sympathy card I’ll need for Saturday. I am also keywording it for Julia’s Ways to Use it Challenge on Thursday to use embossing powder. There are 3 different embossing powders used on this card. The trees are stamped in Versa Mark, then copper embossing powder is sprinkled over the lower portion of the trees, remove the excess powder, then sprinke silver powder over the tops of the trees, remove excess and heat to emboss. They look so pretty and wintery!! The sentiment is white embossed directly onto the designer paper. The main image panel is torn on the lower portion to expose the sentiment. 3 different ribbons were used on the top — wide SU grosgrain, narrow SU grosgrain and May Arts striped ribbon.
This is a really quick and easy card to make, but I think it is still pretty enough to catch someone’s eye! Hope so anyway!!!
- Stamps: Winter Woods by Rubber Stampede; With Sympathy by Stampendous.
- Paper: SU Whisper White and Brocade Background DP (retired SU).

That’s it for today! Hope you can find time to play if you are so inclined!!! As always, thanks much for stopping in.
OH, A QUESTION FOR MY FEEDBLITZ SUBSCRIBERS: Have you been getting daily notices of my uploads? I’ve uploaded each day this week, and it appears to me that the Feedblitz notices are not going out once again. You should have gotten one each day this week. Do you remember if you have? Thanks much!
