Step it Up: one card, two ways - Fancy Friday Blog Hop

Hello! Today you are joining me for the Fancy Friday blog hop. This month our hop challenge was to create two cards ... one of for a Beginner Stamper and another card, stepped up, for an Avid Stamper.

When I started to design, I started with my stepped up card. I tend to stamp at this level often and I refer to them as an Artisan style card. I add lots of layers, embellishments and there is always some Big Shot work. 

It was difficult to photograph, but I colored in the flowers with Clear Wink of Stella. It gives the blooms a soft shimmer that I love.

Spritz the corner of your cardstock with rubbing alcohol to easily curl and scrunch. 

My Beginner Stamper card ... or a quick and easy card. We all need these sometimes! 

In both of my cards, I stamped the flowers with Smoky Slate Ink and colored in with a Sponge Dauber. It is a no fuss coloring technique!

Next on the Fancy Friday blog hop is my friend Allison Okamitsu.

Have a creative day!,
