Stampin Up

We Create Blog Hop- August!


Hi there friends! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators who create a simple project and then a “stepped up” version on the first of every month. We use current Stampin’ Up! products in our designs. I’m so happy you stopped by today! Can you believe it is August already? Where is the summer going?? My inspiration for my blog post today came from Patty Bennett, I fell in love with the Colorful Seasons bundle back in April when I got to see it live at OnStage, and it has been my “go to” stamp set for every type of card this summer! I’ve been using it for birthday, thinking of you, sympathy, and even just home decor! Last week for my monthly team get together I made this card for my swap card for our “summer” themed swap. Then I decided to “step it up” for this blog post, so you would hopefully see the potential of this awesome stamp set and matching framelit dies! That Adirondack chair has been a favorite of mine, and I couldn’t resist using it for today’s post.

Now a “Stepped Up” version:

Here they are side-by-side, what do you think? I’d love to hear which one you prefer.

  1. Lol, everyone else on the hop is all dragonflies, butterflies, and flowers…and I’m…pens. :-O I love both your cards, but that big ol’ swatch of Berry Burst ribbon is super luscious! Thanks for the inspiration 😀


  2. I like them both because on the simple version I really like the Powder Pink mat better than the Early Espresso mat. But if I got to pick one, I would pick the stepped up one because I love the Finely Woven Berry Burst Ribbon and Glitter Enamel Dots, Pretty cards!
