My 1st stair Step card!







Remember the sneaky peek I gave the other day? Well, here it is!!! My very first stair step card! Our challenge over at Bildmalarna Challenge Blog was to make a shape card. This was a hard challenge for me at first! I have plenty of carts along with DS and the Gyspy but when it comes to making a card out of shapes for some reason I freak out! So, I searched and I searched and ran across this stair step card over on Splitcoast Stampers (love that site sooo many ideas!!) I used Mimo with Roses isn't he cute! He is one of my favorites! I used several cricut cartridges. The grass at the very front was cut from Zooballoo. The sentiment is a Studio G and I used my nesties for the scallop and regular oval. The ribbon is some from my big wad of tangled up mess of a stash (no joke it's awful!!!) The next row back I used Heritage for my white picket fence and Straight From The Nest for the grass with flowers (which have little rhinestones added for the center). I used popped dots to raise Mimo away from the fence. The last row you can barely see but for the green schrubs I used Everyday Paper Dolls. I used Straight From the Nest to cut the tree and the clouds are from Paper Pups. I really had fun making this! I haven't been able to play with my cricut in awhile and I was really starting to miss it!! Ok, now I've showed you my shape card and now it's your turn!! Head over to the Bildmalarna Challenge Blog and show us what you come up with!! But don't forget you have to also use a Bildmalarna Stamp! Haven't gotten any? Head over to Bildmalarna.com and order you some today! The new ones are coming out and they are oh so adorable!!!! Thanks for looking and have a great day! Hugs!!!
