Blog Hop: February Step it Up SAB Style

Welcome back to our monthly Step It Up Hop! We hope this new hop style helps many different levels of stampers. Thank you for joining us this month. We hope you have a happy and creative one.

First of all, I want to mention that I CASE'd this card from DO Stamping with Dawn. I had done a google search for something else and found this card that uses a similar type of set. As you can see it works really well with Flowering Fields too. I love the simplicity of this one. Look closely, I burnished the edges of the circles.

I usually try to use the Designer Series Paper to pick the colors but at the time I didn't even remember that I had the DSP. I point this out because the DSP uses a different green so I couldn't use it. Then I found the side that matched the butterfly I had already colored. Lucky me! I love the pop of color.

Blog Hop: Step It Up January

Welcome back to our monthly Step It Up Hop! We hope this new hop style helps many different levels of stampers. Thank you for joining us in this new year. We hope you have a happy and creative one.

In a recent Stampin' Success publication I noticed that the Step It Up article labeled three different types of stampers. I tried to do all three but it wasn't so easy to do the "Avid" one on what I intend to be a masculine card. I prefer the "Casual" one. 
Basic
Casual
Avid
I initially tried to do the "no line" look but used an ink that bled. Oops. Looks like I need to put Archival Basic Gray on my list and hope they add a lighter color to the choices. For some reason the Soft Suede bled a little red. We'll just say it's from the sun.
