One more day to get some amazing deals from Stampin' Up! Don't wait until Wednesday, or it will be too late. And we really don't want the drama, right?
I hope you enjoyed a good Thanksgiving with friends and/or family. My sister and her family came to our house because they were leaving the next day on a Caribbean cruise! I tried to get them to take me along, but no such luck. Sigh.
As I promised in my last post, I have some additional cards from my Step-It-Up Cards class to show you. The first set uses For All Things.
On the stepped-up version (which was CASE-d from one I saw on-line), I took out the background stamping and added an embossing folder along with some ribbon down the left side. The center image was cut out with the Oval Framelits Dies
. The bow in the center is from the 1-1/4" Burlap Ribbon.
Cut a length of the ribbon, then cut off one long edge. Pull some of the loose fibers from the ribbon and you have a cool new textured ribbon!
The second card uses the Bright & Beautiful stamp set. To be honest, this card seemed to be lacking, but I had to keep it simple. Sometimes I find that hard to do.
This card is more to my liking! The star in the center was embossed with Silver Emboss Powder.
The Stylish Stripes
embossing folder was used on the background, and small silver stars were added. They were created by punching a star with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack
from Silver Foil Shee
t and then using the smallest Stars Framelit
to cut around that.
And I saved my favorite card for last. I love the Wondrous Wreath stamp set with its coordinating Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies. Because the stamp set is photopolymer, it's so easy to line up the images on the wreath. The paper is from the Nordic Noel Designer Series Paper pack.
To "step up" this card, we simply added another layer of cardstock between the layers, used the Perfect Polka Dots
embossing folder, and added some Gold Sequin Trim
across the card along with some individual gold sequins on the wreath. This wreath is also cut out with the framelits and popped up with some Dimensionals
for additional depth.
So are you a step-it-upper or do you like the clean and simple look? Either one is great - after all, stamping is all about YOUR style! Until next time...
