Single Stair Step Card Tutorial

I have lots to share today, so let’s get right to it!!  I had so much fun making the Single Stair Step card for the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop that I decided to make another and show you how I did it!

BUT WAIT…there’s MORE!  I also love the new set WATERCOLOR WINGS so much that I made up 10 (yes 10!) color combinations to share with you.  So sit back and enjoy the show!  Be sure to PIN the butterfly pictures below so you have these great color combinations for inspiration!

    Really pretty card. I have not liked most of the color combinations I’ve been seeing for this stamp set so didn’t really want to get it, especially because it is made out of photopolymer, but you’ve opened up my mind to the possibilities when I saw it in the soft pink/brown and soft blue combinations. I rather like it only as a two step stamp.

      Thank you so much Kathy! There are so many colors options for the butterfly and having photopolymer makes it so easy to layer! I hope you give it a try:)

    Thank you so much for sharing all of this with us. I to have a hard time with color combos and this will really help. I was wondering if using glue dots for the flowers and the thread will hold if you don’t have tombo glue? I am going to go to my room and play now. Thank you for sharing. Blessings to you and your family

      Thank you so much Tammy Jo, I am so glad the color combos are helpful! And yes, you can use glue dots for the thread and flowers….I just happen to like Tombow. Have fun stamping!

    I will have to get me Tombow glue but I tend to make a mess when I use glue. :/ Thank you again for sharing this. I was just looking at your blog and oh boy I just love the cards you make. You are so talented. I am a hobby demonstrator and have no talents. I make cards for my family and friends. I have two ladies that buy our product from me and they have lots of talent. So I am so thankful for you and others who share. Thank you

      Tammy, I am so glad you are enjoying the cards. I am sure you have talent, you just need to develop it! Stick with the card making, just copy what you like and go from there. I get inspiration from everywhere including other people’s card ideas. When I first started I was such a novice! It has taken awhile to develop my particular style and I know you will do the same! You’d laugh if you saw my first cards, you would not guess that they were mine! I don’t know if I still have my first swap card, but if I can find it, I’ll share it!
