Step-it-Up Lily Pad Birthday Card

Hi Friends,

I’ve got a Step-it-Up card for you today using 3 free Sale-A-Bration products. Some of you maybe familiar with a series I ran a couple of years ago called Step-it-Up Sunday. Each Sunday I would feature a card made for the beginner crafter, casual crafter and the avid crafter. It’s not a Sunday (I need a weekend … again!) but it’s step-it-up time here at Stamping Flair.

This card features some simple stamping on a Whisper White card base. The Lovely Lily Pad stamp set is a reversible stamp set so the outline of the lily is on one side of the stamp. Flip it over and you have the fill in image.

I love how simple this stamp is to use and hey, you don’t have to worry about lining it up because no matter how hard you try, it’s not going to. That’s just how it’s designed – love it. Then I added some background splattering with the Artisan Textures stamp set in Coastal Cabana. Pretty, simple and quick. Perfect if you are a Beginner Crafter or need a card in a hurry.

The card for the Casual Crafter (someone who crafts occasionally) has been stepped up with a bit of die cutting.

More detail has been added to the card for the Avid Crafter (papercrafting addict). I added the beautiful die cut black border which makes the DSP pop. 

I added more depth to the stamped lily by shading with Stamin’ Blends. This colouring medium is beautiful to work with and it’s great quality and very user friendly. You don’t need to be an artist to use them.
