We Create – December Blog Hop

December??? Where has this year gone??

Welcome to the second post for today! This one is a Blog Hop too for We Create!

What we do is, ‘we create’ a card then ‘step it up’ or ‘step it over’.

I started with this –

libbystamps, stampin up, Watercolor Words, Merry Little Christmas, We Create

A very nice card! Wonderful – fun, bright, cheery colors! Then I stepped up the design……

……by adding some ribbon behind the sentiment that’s how! I never think to do this, but, it adds so much to a design.

Now, the card is a WOW! This was one of the choices at my November Card Buffet a couple of weeks ago and it was a total hit!!!

I do love the addition of the ribbon. It just makes the card!

We Create – November Blog Hop

Hello November! Welcome to the second of three posts today! This one is a Blog Hop for We Create!

What we do is, ‘we create’ a card then ‘step it up’ or ‘step it over’.

I created this stunning black and white card for my October Card Buffet –

…….and loved it!

I decided to step it over with similar colors –

Conveniently, from the same pack of Designer Series Paper! I changed the stamping up a bit to Old Olive. This turned out lovely too.

I think I still like the original black and white best though. How about you?

Tell me your thoughts on the two cards. Leave a comment before going on to the talented Kris Kilkenny – we all love to read your comments!  Stampin’ Up Supplies

Christmas Make’n Takes

Tuesday I showed the swaps from our Team Meeting on Monday. Thursday I shared my swap. And, today, I’m sharing our projects we created!

Nice that we made a variety using different items!

This first swap was great because I don’t have this Snowflake Sentiments Bundle –

libbystamps, stampin up, Snowflake Sentiments, Swirly Snowflakes, Snowflake Sentiments Bundle, Everyday Label Punch

It made for a beautiful card. This intricate die takes patience.

This was a really fun fold for a Christmas card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Carols of Christmas, Hang Your Stocking, Merry Little Christmas

It used some of my favorite Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Mini, Merry Little Christmas. Opened up, it’s really pretty too –

libbystamps, stampin up, Carols of Christmas, Hang Your Stocking, Merry Little Christmas

Sentiment is from the Hang Your Stocking.

The last project was a really quick, easy and very cute idea –

libbystamps, stampin up, Oh What Fun, Tags & Trimmings, Quilted Christmas DSP stack, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Mini Pizza Boxes, Holly EF, Stitched Felt Embellishments

Mini Pizza Box treat holder with a belly band!
