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!

This is my simple card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Eastern Beauty Bundle, We Create, Eastern Beauty, Eastern Medallions ThinlitsUsing the same layout, here is my stepped up 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!

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.

Food Truck Fun for We Create, Blog Hop

This is the second blog hop and post you’ll be seeing from me this New Years day!

Wahoo! I’ve gotten to be a crafty little one lately! With new, upcoming stuff!!!!

e7ca1-wcbh2016

This is 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.

So what I did was to combine both ideas into one theme.

Here is one of my cards –

libbystamps, stampin up, Tasty Trucks, Stitched Shapes Framelits, A Little Foxy DSP, Envelope Liners Framelits, We Create, SAB 2017

I used an upcoming free stamp set you can earn during Sale-a-Bration! It’s too cute!

libbystamps, stampin up, Tasty Trucks, Stitched Shapes Framelits, A Little Foxy DSP, Envelope Liners Framelits, We Create, SAB 2017

See. Same layout, similar card, one simple, one a little more fancy!

I even went so far as to create envelope liners!!!

libbystamps, stampin up, Tasty Trucks, Stitched Shapes Framelits, A Little Foxy DSP, Envelope Liners Framelits, We Create, SAB 2017

I figured, why not? I have SO much DSP that is retired……..I should just use  it –  like this to create a really nice ensemble while it’s still current!

libbystamps, stampin up, Tasty Trucks, Stitched Shapes Framelits, A Little Foxy DSP, Envelope Liners Framelits, We Create, SAB 2017

Love this colored one too! So fun and bright!

libbystamps, stampin up, Tasty Trucks, Stitched Shapes Framelits, A Little Foxy DSP, We Create, SAB 2017

And together, what a cute set of cards!!!! Wouldn’t you agree?

Step It Up Reindeer, We Create Blog Hop

This is the second blog hop and post you’ll be seeing from me!

Wahoo! Been a crafty little one lately!

e7ca1-wcbh2016

This is 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.

This time, I chose to create a card and make it twice using the same layout. Here is the fist one –

libbystamps, stampin up, We Create, Red Foil Sheets, Pom-Pom Trim, Festive EF, Candy Cane Lane DSP, Cookie Cutter Builder, Cookie Cutter Christmas, Layering Ovals Framelits

It is sort of simple in design until you open it –

libbystamps, stampin up, We Create, Red Foil Sheets, Pom-Pom Trim, Festive EF, Candy Cane Lane DSP, Cookie Cutter Builder, Cookie Cutter Christmas, Layering Ovals Framelits

It’s a gift card holder! And, it used the same size card stock as a regular card, it’s just scored differently!

The other card uses the remaining half of the Real Red card stock –

libbystamps, stampin up, We Create, Red Foil Sheets, Pom-Pom Trim, Festive EF, Candy Cane Lane DSP, Cookie Cutter Builder, Cookie Cutter Christmas, Layering Ovals Framelits

It’s a way fancier front, but it uses the same basic layout.

Here, you can see the two next to each other –

libbystamps, stampin up, We Create, Red Foil Sheets, Pom-Pom Trim, Festive EF, Candy Cane Lane DSP, Cookie Cutter Builder, Cookie Cutter Christmas, Layering Ovals Framelits

What do you think? You like? The cards are sort of stepped up and sort of stepped over!

I love both of them! The retired Red Foil Paper (it’s still on the Clearance Rack) and Pom-Pom Trim was a great added bonus here!

I’d love to read what you think before heading over to Julie’s blog to see what she created.

Supplies –

  • Stamp Set – Cookie Cutter Christmas
  • Dies – Layering Ovals Framelits
  • Punches – Cookie Cutter Builder
  • Card Stock – Real Red, Early Espresso, Crum Cake, Whisper White
  • DSP – Candy Cane Lane
  • Ink –Early Espresso
  • Big Shot – Festive EF
  • Other – Red Foil Sheets (R), Pom-Pom Trim (R)
