Vintage Vogue in Razzleberry





Hi there Stampers!!! Did ya miss me???!!! I told you I'd be back, I just wasn't quite sure when, but here I am. I think I'm back for good this time, atleast I'm hoping I will be!!

As you can see I have been working with Stampin Up's new Vintage Vogue. I don't have the set as yet, but a friend let me borrow it and I love it!!! There's something about this set...the softness of it, I think, that draws me in! I really love and enjoy this beautiful set.

I chose to to try something different that I've seen others making. It was easy and fun to do, it's call the Stair-step card. For some reason, I really thought this would be quite a challenge for me so I really put it off. I'm kind of embarrassed that I put it off so long, because it was quite easy to make and I definitely will be making more. The thing that I like about this card, is that the recipient is able to set this on a shelf or mantel and they don't have to "open" it to see the full card. It's really an attention getter. Everytime they look at the card, they'll think of you, the cardmaker and it will bring a smile to their face, I'm sure!

The recipe for the card is as follows:
Stamp set: Vintage Vogue
Cardstock: Pale Plum, Razzleberry & Whisper White
Inks: Pale Plum, Razzleberry, Old Olive and
Whisper White, Razzleberry Marker and White Gel pen
Misc:Amethyst gem brad, Dazzling Diamonds and
5/8th inch Old Olive Satin Ribbon

Thank you so much for stopping by and please be sure to send me some luv and leave a comment! I love hearing from everyone and you're all over the world! Amazing!! Let me know what you think of my cards! :)

Take care and happy stamping,

OMG! This is GORGEOUS!! I'm saving it to my "CASE" file along with the diagram you created on how to make it. I have GOT to do a card like this! Isn't the Vintage Vogue set great? I don't think I've seen an ugly card made with it yet!

I love this stair step card. I've never made one, but I think this card has encouraged me to try. Thanks for putting the measurements in the next post.
