We Create Blog Hop- April 2016



Hi there stamping friends! Welcome back to our monthly Step It Up Hop! We hope our hop style helps many different levels of stampers. Thank you for joining us this month. We hope you have a happy and creative one!! Can you believe it is April already, where did March go?? Last night was a flurry of activity getting in the last of our Sale-a-bration orders… what a great selection this year, don’t you think?

For April, since it is my favorite month of the whole year (it’s my birth-month and I’ve always enjoyed the change in weather, love SPRING!!), I decided to do several cards today featuring one of my favorite bundles from the Occasions 2016 Catalog. Can you guess which bundle?? It is the Rose Wonder Stamp Set with Rose Garden Thinlits Dies!! And you absolutely must have the awesome Big Shot Die Brush (to easily remove all the small cut pieces out of the rose and leaves).

I sadly am in need of many sympathy cards both to send and for my card racks and custom orders. Let me know which version you like the best.


First up, the simple card, with no embellishments, just used the cut out portion of the rose/leaf die as a stencil and sponged blackberry bliss and pear pizzazz ink on my plain whisper white cardstock. After I was done, I highlighted areas with the clear Wink of Stella glitter brush.



This version is plain and simple.



Now to cut more rose/leaf combos, once in Blackberry Bliss card stock (I’m sure going to miss this color when it retires soon) and Pear Pizzazz. Cut leaves to piece together (like a little puzzle).


Now to “Step it Up!” in the We Create Style!


On this card, I added washi tape and ribbon to give it some more interest.



Finally, had to add rhinestones- how do you like the big one in the middle?

There are hundreds of ways you can use this stamp set, it has been my “go-to” set this month for sympathy and thinking of you (and several birthday cards too).
