We Create August Blog Hop

Happy August! Yes, August. Already! That means blog hop time! Second one of the day. We Create this time around!

Lol, ‘we create’ a card then ‘step it up’ or ‘step it over’.

I guess this month I decided to ‘step it over’. Here is the first card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits, Decorative Ribbon Border Punch, Fresh Florals DSP, We CreateThis card is pretty. However, change the base…..

libbystamps, stampin up, Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits, Decorative Ribbon Border Punch, Fresh Florals DSP, We CreateIsn’t this a pop of color now?

libbystamps, stampin up, Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits, Decorative Ribbon Border Punch, Fresh Florals DSP, We Create

Compare the two. Both cards use all the same elements and colors. What a difference the card base makes!

I’d love to read your thoughts on the two cards. Leave a comment before going onto the talented Kris Kilkenny – we all love to read your comments!

We Create June Blog Hop

This is my third of three posts today for Three post Thursday and new catalog launching!! This is a blog hop for We Create!

I went with one of my favorites from the catalog so far, the Lovely Words Thinlits –

libbystamps, stampin up, BFBH, Wood Words, Lovely Words Thinlits, Fresh Florals DSP

A simple card showcasing the cutout words.

I paired the framelits with a sentiment from Wood Words. I used two new In-Colors here too, Powder Pink and Berry Burst.

libbystamps, stampin up, BFBH, Wood Words, Lovely Words Thinlits, Fresh Florals DSP

I stepped up this card by adding the 1/8 Silver ribbon. Surprisingly, it curled when I ran it quickly along a pair of scissors! I also added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

This is my simple card –

We Create April Blog Hop

No foolin’, I’ve got a couple of great cards for We Create Bloggers!

I made two cards, one simply cute –

libbystamps, stampin up, Basket Bunch, Basket Bunch Bundle, Basket Builder Framelits, Succulent Garden, We Create

And, one super cute –

libbystamps, stampin up, Basket Bunch, Basket Bunch Bundle, Basket Builder Framelits, Succulent Garden, We Create

The first card was on my March Card Buffet. People loved it!

The Basket Bunch Bundle is an absolute must have from this Occasions Mini catalog! I loved the simplicity of the first card, until………until, I added the designer series paper. The addition made the card really cute!

Make a Wish, We Create March Blog Hop

Save the best for last? Um, maybe. This is the third post for today, and it’s for We Create Bloggers!

e7ca1-wcbh2016

I decided to go with the same layout this month and use different color schemes.

Here is the first simply sweet card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Window Shopping, Window Box Thinlits, Brights DSP Stack, Playful Palette, We Create, birthday

I say sweet because it uses Sweet Sugarplum and the new Sale-a-Bration glimmer paper pack you can get, For Free.

My other card is geared to be a bit more masculine and uses the Bermuda Bay glimmer paper and coordinating DSP.

libbystamps, stampin up, Window Shopping, Window Box Thinlits, Brights DSP Stack, Playful Palette, We Create, birthday

Yes, both of these, plus Mint Macaron Glimmer paper come in the 6×6 Glimmer Paper Assortment, 12 sheets, 4 of each color!

libbystamps, stampin up, Window Shopping, Window Box Thinlits, Brights DSP Stack, Playful Palette, We Create, birthday Two great cards. One great layout!

We Create the Love for February Blog Hop

This is the third post, another blog hop, you’ll be seeing from me today!

I’m feelin’ the love in this post. I’ve gotten to be a crafty little one lately!

e7ca1-wcbh2016

These two cards are for We Create! Our theme we work with is to either create a card then step it up or create two cards using the same layout. I chose to sort combine the two ideas.

Here is my first card, filled with love of course!

libbystamps, stampin up, sale-a-bration 2017, SAB17, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits, Double Take, Any Occasion

It’s stamped repeatedly. So simple, adding a silver heart highlighting ‘you’.

libbystamps, stampin up, sale-a-bration 2017, SAB17, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits, Double Take, Any OccasionThis one is stamped directly on the Whisper White card front. The heart is stapled on with the mini stapler for an edgy look. Although, you can barely see it!

The next card is a stepped up or stepped over version –

libbystamps, stampin up, sale-a-bration 2017, SAB17, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits, Double Take, Any Occasion

I added a Real Red heart and tiny stamped hearts for added effect.

libbystamps, stampin up, sale-a-bration 2017, SAB17, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits, Double Take, Any Occasion

This one is mounted using Dimensionals onto a Dapper Denim base.

libbystamps, stampin up, sale-a-bration 2017, SAB17, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits, Double Take, Any Occasion

Together both cards are simply stunning. Great masculine cards for any occasion too.
