Control Freaks September Blog Hop - Stepping it Up

 Hello, Stampers!

The FrEaKs are back and are Stepping it Up for this month's Blog Hop!
The team will be showing how to take stamping from a beginner,
to a casual and finally to an avid level. Whether you are starting out here
or arriving from Debbie's blog, we definitely have something for everyone today!

This card is for the beginner stamper. It has a little
basic ink to paper stamping as well as a simple
"speckle" technique. Just dip a wet paint brush into
a little Crumb Cake ink and tap the brush over the paper.

This card is for a casual stamper. It has a little basic
stamping but also introduces a little die cutting,
embellishing and layering.

With the addition of more stamping and embellishing,
this card is more for the avid stamper. It also may
introduce a little more tedious cutting, an additional
technique or extra embellishing. Here, I added a banner
to the sentiment. To give it more of a 3D look, I
added a couple of score lines on each side and folded 
the ends to make the sentiment stand out. 

Stamps: Cottage Wreaths
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Soft Succulent, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Evening Evergreen
Paper: Basic White, Soft Succulent, Distressed Gold
Accessories: Stylish Shapes dies, Scalloped Contour dies, Country Wreaths dies, Soft Succulent ribbon, Elegant Gold trim, Real Red Rhinestones, Waterpainters

Happie Stampin'!
