New At SU October Blog Hop Simple To Stepped Up Stamping Christmas Season

Welcome to the New At SU October Blog Hop as we showcase this month's theme "Simple to Stepped Up Stamping". Our Design Team members will be sharing projects that showcase simple, casual and avid projects to show how you can step up your projects. 

For my examples of Simple to Stepped up Stamping, I chose to create 3 Christmas cards using the Season of Christmas stamp set. I love that the images in this stamp set work well for all 3 types of cards. 
Simple Stamping
This clean and simple card design is all about paper, stamps and ink. I stamped the pinecones with Crumb Cake and Soft Suede Classic inks using the two-step stamping technique and added some pine needles with Soft Succulent Classic ink. The colors are very simple - Soft Succulent, Evening Evergreen and Very Vanilla, to create simple layers. This would be a great masculine Christmas card. 

I took my layout from the first card and stepped it up by using Soft Succulent Designer Series Paper for the background and added some heat embossing in Gold embossing powder, for the sentiment and detail on the stamped focal image. I also added some simple embellishments with the Gold Satin Edge Ribbon and Basic Pearls colored with the Light Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends Marker.

This is my over the top card design, taking elements from the first two cards and stepping them up again. This time I die cut the stamped pinecones, pine needles, leaves and berries with the coordinating Seasonal Labels Dies to decorate the sentiment label, which is the focal image for this card design. I also embossed the background layer using the Fern 3D Embossing Folder to add texture and I added a bow and Gold Brushed Metallic Adhesive Dots to embellish the design.
