Stepped Up Stamping- Gather Together

Today’s project are these Stepped Up Stamping cards! Stepped up stamping is when you start simple and step up the project with every level. The 3 levels of cardmaking I’ll be featuring today are: Beginner, Casual and Avid.

Beginner Card

For the beginner level card the only products I used were cardstock, stamps and ink. You want to keep beginner cards simple as to not overwhelm the stamper. I chose a simple design using the Gather Together stamp set and Crumb Cake and Early Espresso inks.

Casual Card

For the casual level card I used the same products from the beginner level but added ribbon. I also added another ink color, Merry Merlot. I added some Early Espresso cardstock behind the sentiment to make it stand out.

Avid Card

For the avid level card I went all out. I added embossed and die cut leaves. I also embossed the Crumb Cake layer with the Subtle embossing folder. Then I spritz the layer with water. It “bled” slightly but I like how it turned out. To step this up even more, you could also use heat embossing for the sentiment or leaves.

The inside of the cards

On the inside of all 3 cards, I stamped a sentiment and the dots from Gather Together.
