Make It Monday #72: Step It Up - Embellishments

This weeks Make It Monday video at Papertrey Ink was done by Dawn McVey.  Dawn has a way to make crafting look so easy.  I created three cards for this weeks challenge.  One is super simple, one stepped up a little and one is stepped up a lot.  I created this card HERE back in April using the same technique and dies for colourQ #134 and then this week I stepped it up a lot.







All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock: White, Aqua Mist
Patterned Paper: Aqua Mist Paper Pack
Stamps: Sending You. Mehndi Medallion
Ink: Green Leaf, Hibiscus Burst, Winter Wisteria (PTI), Tuxedo Black Memento (Tsukineko)
Dies: Sending You, Flowers Fuion #3, Banner Border
Other:  foam tape, foam dots

What a perfect take on the challenge. And, so good to see you conquer your adhesive! Love those Sending You leaves, and I had totally forgotten about them. Three really beautiful cards.

What a great job of repurposing your stamps! Are you teaching one of the new Online Card Classes-Stretch your stamps? I love it when someone pulls out a great standby and uses it so cleverly! I really like the color combos too! Beautiful cards?
