July Step It Up Blog Hop - Just Kidding (not kidding!)

Welcome to the July 2016 Edition of the We Create Bloggers Step It Up Blog Hop! The idea is to inspire stampers with a basic design, and at least one alternate "stepped up" version of that same design. My family doesn't usually do anything special for the 4th of July, so I decided to pull out a random stamp set instead of going for stars and stripes. I grabbed the Just Kidding stamp set, and you won't find it in the current catalog...but it's still available (just click on that link). I kid you not, I'm being serious now!

The Just Kidding stamp set actually came out as part of Stampin' Up!'s trial period of photopolymer stamps they started in 2013. I think this was actually the last individual "online only" monthly photopolymer stamp set they released, March of 2015. And you can still get your grimy mitts creative hands on it if you click this link: Just Kidding stamp set

  1. I totally forgot those are still available! I love it!

  2. I like how you added a few simple things to really step it up. I can't wait to accent some of my cards with that gold thread too (bought it last night). Funny that you're all using something I just ordered.

  3. That washi tape really makes the image pop and I really like the silver cord at the bottom corner. Great Step UP project

  4. Oh fun! I love this stamp set and the strips of washi tape add a lot!
    (the coloring, of course, does too, haha!)

  5. Such a funny little stamp. Both great cards but I love that the simple addition of the Washi tape, changed the second card up so much! Thanks for sharing.

  6. super cute cards Kimberley- I forgot that was still available too! TFS!

  7. Ha- Ha- Love this lady! Yours cards are fabulous! Great job on the card and stepped up version!
