Inspiration Journal May Challenge

As Spring time is coming to a close, Memorial Day weekend gone by, graduations are upon us and summer is peeking around the corner. Over at Inspiration Emporium ... Inspiration Journal http://blog.inspirationemporium.com/?cat=18 this months theme is Celebrate !
With my anniversary coming up and my husbands birthday I decided to do cards. Card Maker Summer 2014 was out and this issue was featuring Stair Step Cards ( I like using them to jump start my creativity for cards). So I decided to try one... two... three... was so much fun I got carried away!

My initial card was an anniversary card. I'm in that mode of using what I've got ; so I decided to use some of my leftover Valentine Papers from Recollections.

What better papers to use for anniversary right ? My inspiration came from Noelle McAdam's
card on p. 70 . These cards are so magical to me . For my background I used a gray cardstock, and then I picked complimenting patterns of the valentine paper for each stair step. I added a scalloped heart with sentiment added (sentiment from Momenta ); added a stamped anniversary greeting  on a parchment looking cardstock from Recollections, cropped on red cardstock from Bazzil. I furthered embellished my card by adding  brads by Recollections, my famous signature bling; I used a red heart ... so cool huh and on the bottom step I added some gray wassi tape also from Recollections.
Not bad for my first stair  step card ! How fun.

I had so much fun I did another one. Just gonna share the photos with you for this one ...

Okay ... so I got hooked I did another one using the  Authentique Anchored paper ... swoon ... love the colors in these papers. This will probably be my hubby's birthday card . I just had so much fun  I had to share.

Love those stair steps! They've got other styles... I'm gonna learn those too . I hope you enjoyed my peak. See you next time !
