Have you ever looked at a card and thought ‘I wish I could make one like that’? Crafting is for anyone and yes, you can do it too. Step-It-Up Sunday is all about enabling any level of crafter to create beautiful handmade cards they are proud of.
This series is focused on highlighting the different ways a card can be enhanced for various levels of crafters. I will ‘Step-Up’ a card 3 levels.
The first will be Basic. They are suitable for beginners and yet eye catching for the recipient.
The second will be Intermediate. This will be the Basic card with a little more stamping, matting, colouring – a little bit of extra work.
The third level is for the Devoted crafter and will have more techniques involved, added dimensions and will take your project to the next level. This may suit the more experienced crafter but there is nothing stopping anyone from trying this out.
This will be a weekly post and I really hope you enjoy it and get some inspiration to try them out.
Please leave me a comment. I look forward to hearing how you go with with these cards.
Soooo welcome to our first Step-It-Up Sunday Session. I am so excited to begin this series and it is going to challenge me to come up with 3 different variations of the same card.
Today’s card features the Hello Easter stamp set. Easter is a little over a month away so I thought I better get a move on my cards.
My first card features a simple offset layering with a little bit of embellishing. I’ve coloured the Easter egg with Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write marker. Washi tape adds an extra dimension.
The next card is exactly the same layout I’ve stamped the Crushed Curry matte with Berry Burst flowers and added a strip down the bottom of the card to tie it all in.
On my last card I used the Color Theory Designer Series Paper and cardstock Pack to create a background. I also stamped my sentiment on the DSP. The Whisper White layer has been die cut with the Square from the Stitched Framelits die set. I did this by setting part of the die on the Big Shot and running the cardstock through. Then turn the cardstock, line it up and run through the Big Shot again. This creates the rectangle. Washi tape has been used around the stamped band in the centre.
I hope you find this fun and please give it a try. Look forward to some feedback.
