NEW AT SU-THOUGHFUL EXPRESSIONS-SIMPLE & STEPPED UP!

Welcome! This month on our New at SU Blog Hop we are featuring some of our lovely products from the January-April Spring Mini Catalog! However, we are going a step further! We are giving you stepped-up options! Sometime ya wanna go crazy & create, but other times ya just want something easy! Well this group of international independent Stampin' Up! demonstrators will give you tons of options!!!

I am sharing with you 3 options with the same stamp set. Very simple, a bit more, then lots of product & detail. Just some ideas!!! See how you can step up your products!

Card #1:


Very simple. No layers (well there is a layer of white but only because the     Stampin' Blends bleed through!) This card is simply stamped with the     Thoughtful Expressions stamp set & colored with Blends. You can eliminate the top layer by using colored pencils, markers, whatever you have on hand. Or just leave it uncolored! It's a beautiful bird either way! Just some simple             Adhesive Backed Cork Rounds adorn the card, but you could go without if you'd like.

Card #2:

This card is slightly stepped up! The bird is stamped & colored, but this time it is die cut with the coordinating Thoughtful Expressions Dies. The background is embossed with the Painted Texture embossing folder. Same card, just die cut, embossed & some Linen Thread

Card #3:


Now this card is fully stepped up!! Added Perennial Lavender DSP, ribbon and sentiment shapes! It uses a lot more product, but it is still basically the same card-just fully stepped up!!!! It is blinged up with some Purple Fine Shimmer Gems! Gotta have some bling! It's all "wrapped up" with the beautiful Crinkle Ribbon-which actually you can get in our Sale-a-Bration Catalog for FREE with a qualifying purchase of $50!

So 3 cards-same layout, just each having a different level & amount of product!  A.K.A. stepped up!!!! This Thoughtful Expressions bundle is absolutely beautiful & so very versatile!

Now please go take a trip around the world & visit the other blogs in our hop! They are listed below! We love comments, so feel free to give some positive feedback. Enjoy your trip!

Happy Stampin'!!!
