Blog Hop: Step It Up December

Thank you for joining us! I did a step it over this month... aka CASE'd an old card of mine. I had fun stamping these and I hope to create again soon. I've got a lot of assignments piling up. 

The simple Christmas card above was created based on the layout of the card below. Unfortuately, the terrible pic I took doesn't do it justice. You can barely see that I actually colored the tree in. The pic on the right kind of captures the excessive glitter. I used Wink of Stella and then Dazzling Diamonds on top of that.

Blog Hop: Step It Up - November

Thank you for joining us! This month, even though we have added the option to step it over I just stepped it up. 

This is the 3 x 3 x 3 White Gift Box with the acetate sleeves. I lined the sleeve with the Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack and made a simple tag to match tied on with Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine from the Trio Pack.

To step it up I ran the sleeve through the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions TM Embossing Folder. Then I added the stamped hearts from the Wrapped in Warmth stamp set and the Gold twine. To top it off I crafted (and almost gave up on) a gift bow made with the DSP. I must admit this looks pretty snazzy.

Blog Hop: Step It Up October

Welcome to another hop! During the duration of the Holiday Catalog we thought we'd mix it up a bit. We've added the option to step it over. That's our term for using the same layout and changing up the theme. In our case, from everyday to holiday.

I found this card in my stash. I did not make it and unfortunately I am unable to give anyone credit. If it is yours, feel free to claim it. 
Here's my stepped up and over to Halloween version! The only thing I regret is not putting a moon behind the tree somehow but it was too late for that. I had already glued it down. 

I have been pretty absent when it comes to stamping lately so it was nice that this project came together so easily. What can I say, I have had an eventful summer outside and have had a hard time doing any indoor activities other than sleep.
