Welcome to our New at SU Blog and today we are sharing a variety of projects suitable for all levels of crafters. Each project will start with a Simple Stamping version, then it will be stepped up for the Avid crafter and the Artfully Avid crafter.

Pick what is best suited to your crafting needs and have fun creating. A Simple Stamping project is ideal if you are a beginner crafter or even if you are an experience crafter who is short on time or you just want something to create that is back to basics.

I’ve chosen the Peaceful Deer stamp set and it’s coordinating punch to create my Simple Stamping card. Punches are great for beginners and can give extra dimension to a project so simply. The deer was stamped in Gray Granite on Smoky Slate Cardstock as I wanted a lighter shade to the Gray Granite card base. A few stamped trees, some paper, a few sequins and this card is complete.

To step-up the next card for the Avid crafter, I’ve embossed the Pool Party panel with the Wintry Embossing Folder and added some ink blending in Pool Party and Tahitian Tide on the bottom of the White panel.

A die cut label adds more definition around the sentiment and some coordinating Gray Granite ribbon adds a sweet finishing touch.

A vellum banner was added providing a softness to this Artfully Avid card. I stamped the deer on Basic White Cardstock and coloured them with Stampin’ Blends.

To create the leaves I blended some Flirty Flamingo ink over White Cardstock. Then I die cut several sets of leaves. Along with the silver leaves and Snowfall Accents Puff Paint, these provide grounding for the deer.

I hope you have enjoyed the variations of this card and I would love to hear which one you would like to try out. Thank you for stopping by my blog and please make sure you follow the hop right through for lots of ideas on how you can step-up your projects.
