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 –

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 –

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.

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.
