StampInsanity Challenge #4: Stair Step Card

Greetings my fellow paper fanatics! It is time for another fabulous StampInsanity Challenge! This week, we were challenged to create a stair step card (something I never did before), while using one (or more) of Beth’s fabulous images. Learn how to make one of these yourself HERE. Check out my card!

There’s a lot going on here so please click on the image(s) to see it bigger! This was a lot of fun. And my husband was super impressed with it so that’s a bonus!

Tri-Fold-2

I used a whole lot of products, once again. I love being able to do that! I don’t really like sticking with one or two companies for a project. I love to mix it up! In this picture you’ll see that I used punches, embossing folders, Glimmer Mists, Alcohol Inks, ribbon and tags. Whew! That’s a whole lotta stuff! The sentiment is also from StampInsanity.

Here is a close up of Joszette. I colored her with my Spectracolor colored pencils. I think she is so cool! She’s so chill just sittin’ up on top of my card ain’t she?

Here’s another view of all the stuff I piled on to this card. I have to say, I was a bit apprehensive at first, since I hadn’t made a card like this before. But I am so happy with how it turned out! I will totally be making more of these cards! I’m so happy that we Groovy Gurlz are a part of such cool and unique challenges!

Hey! Did you know that StampInsanity is sponsoring the Friends Having Fun Blog as well as Smeared and Smudged??? I really hope you are a member of both! If not, please join, and then you can have a shot of winning some kick ass digis from Beth herself!

Now go check out the rest of the Groovy Gurlz! You are sure to be inspired! And then, join in on the challenge! Join the Insanity!
