Block Card aka Stair Step Card with Deb Valder

Hidy Ho Stampers,

OMGosh…is all I can say.  Since I got my catalog, I've been pulling old stuff out, reshelfing new stuff and just playing, playing and playing more!  I just love to stamp!!!!  and I love to color and I love to cut!  What a place to be!!!!  Today's card is so much fun using some product you will be able to order come June 2nd.  So here is another sneak peek!

This is my block card using the new stamp set Something for Baby

and the matching framelits (it's a BUNDLE)!

Isn't this the cutest thing ever and believe it or not

it only took 1/2 hour from beginning to end.


and the pom pom was made with some of our new

THICK Baker's Twine!

  20. Joyce Lowe says:

    This is adorable! I made one using 4.5″ x 11″, scoring first at 1/4″ and then every 1.5″,leaving 1/4″. Then I cut a 4.5″ x 1.5″ piece for the bottom, since it had to be pieced anyway. This way I am able to use 8.5 x 11 CS, which I have more of than 12″ x 12″. I plan to make this with my club and I’m sure they will love it. Thank you for the video and all the measurements!

  21. Deb says:

  29. Deb says:

    Thank you papercrafter45!  I’m laughing because it’s like the “telephone” game….it starts out with one person, then it gets passed and passed and passed and at the end, you are hoping that it’s the same message as the beginning.  So indeed if it was you….thank you, I hope I did it justice and you are proud! Have a great day.   deb for all your shopping needs!
