New at SU blog hop - Decorative Borders meet Kind and Sincere


stepper card using stampin up decorative borders stamp set and alcohol blends

Hello and welcome to my blog and the New at SU blog hop. I've been away for quite a while now with things going on in family life that have made me take a step back for some months from crafting, but hopefully back and building up speed again now with this fun hop sharing cards using no white card and a bundle from our new spring catalogue. Many of the bundles were already chosen by the time I got my act together and so I've created a bundle using the Decorative Borders and Kind and Sincere stamp sets to create this simple stepper card and also add some #simplestamping.  

You can find lots of stepper cards to follow and I've gone with EU measurements.  

  1. card base 21 cm x 14.8 cm
  2. Score on the long side for 3cm at 3cm, 6cm and 13.4cm on both sides. 
  3. cut from the inside 3cm point of the 3cm score line right up to the 3cm inside point of the 13.4 cm line on both sides. 
  4. Score between the two cut lines at 10.5cm on the long side. 
  5. Fold the score lines to form mountain - valley  - mountain from the 3 cm score lines.
You can then decorate your card base how you wish. I've added a rectangle of card for the centre section which I have stamped on. This piece is 10cm x 8.2cm.  I've stamped on it with Tuxedo Black Memento ink so that I could then add some extra colour with my Stampin' Blends, alcohol markers.  I've also stamped part of the sentiment from the Kind and Sincere set on this piece and added a fussy cut 'Thanks' from the same set which I heat embossed using Versamark ink and white embossing powder.  

A sprinkling of pearls and some white ribbon finished this section which I adhered having once stamped some tone on tone ie yellow ink on yellow card designs from the Decorative Borders set.  

These cards always look more difficult than they are and can be very effective.  

I hope you enjoy the hop. 

thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop.

I think this is the prettiest card I have seen with this set until now! I just love how you used it. It is different, elegant and subtle, and very stylish. I really think I need this set now ;o) Your fold is great too, love the little stamped details on the different parts of it.
