Simple Techniques - Stepping Up Cards

Today I am sharing the simple technique of 'Stepping Up' cards. When you Step Up a project you take it to another level by adding extra features or embellishments to create another look. 

Watercolor Words, Stamp Set, Stampin' Up!

Take my simple card above. It is a beautiful card in its own right and I'd have no problem at all giving it to a friend, but I'd like to add an extra something...

The card below is the same card (although there is a little extra stamping) but it has the addition of some embellishments - in this case sequins. This has completely changed the look of the card and has added some extra texture and depth.

It's as simple as that!

Watercolor Words, Stamp Set, Stampin' Up!

I used Watercolor Words for the 'Hope' sentiment, and Blooms & Wishes for the flowers. I have used complementing colours Wisteria Wonder and Blushing Bride along with the Tuxedo Memento Black Ink, which is a fantastic crisp black ink pad.

The sequins are the Fancy Frost Sequins, which are found in the Autumn Winter Catalogue. If you have any questions about Stampin' Up! please don't hesitate to contact me on the email address below.

I'll be back tomorrow with more posts and news,
