How to Step It Up - Simple Changes. Any Project. Any Stamper

Hello again!

Yay, it's the weekend!! This week has been wonderful full of lovely sunshine - after a long wet winter it finally feels like spring has arrived.

On Wednesday Mum and I went for afteroon tea at the country house at Stanmer Park near Brighton - it was delicious - we had oodles of tea, a selection of finger sandwiches (with the crust cut off), warm scones with clotted cream & strawberry jam and other tasty morsels. It was just wonderful spending some quality mother and daughter time!

Today, I'm bringing you three projects, the first is simple and ideal for new crafters, the second takes things to the next level with a couple of extra elements and is for casual crafters and the last builds on the previous cards but adds another layer, texture and heat embossing and is for avid crafters.
A very simple layout / sketch
A scalloped die cut behind the stamped layer and some sequins are added to the 2nd card.
Heat embossing and the embossed strip of vellum adds so much texture to the last card
Here are all 3 projects together - sorry for the poor photo quality! Don't you just love the copper foil
