Beauty in the Simple Things (Center Step Card)

Hi everyone!  Welcome to Wednesday and as always I have some inspiration for Heartfelt Creations for you today!  Have you ever had a image or stamp that you would like to be the focus of your card?  I just love using center step cards for those occasions!  Here is one using one of the new stamps from the gorgeous Cascading Fuchsia Collection.







Products Used:

HCPC 3645 – Leafy Branch Cling Stamp Set
HCPC 3650 – Butterfly Medley Cling Stamp Set
HCPC-3668  – Cascading Fuchsia Cling Stamp Set
HCPC-3671 – Fuchsia Clusters Cling Stamp Set

Project Instructions:

Other products:  White Card Stock, Devine Floral Die, Petite Ovals Large, Derwent Watercolor pencils (Orchid, Magenta and Jade Green), Gold embossing powder, Distressed Inks (Dusty Concord and Pickled Raspberry), Wink of Stella Clear, Crystal Fine Glitter, Pearls, String and Ribbon from my stash and die cutting machine.


Start by creating your center step card out of White card stock.  For those of you would like a tutorial on how to create one, here is a link to a good tutorial.  Stamp the Fuchsia Clusters Cling Stamp Set and color with your watercolor pencils.  Once the coloring has been completed die cut using the Petite Ovals Large and layer under a Devine Floral Die for the center of the card.  Finish off the card by stamping the Cascading Fuchsia flowers and distressing them with Dusty Concord and Pickled Raspberry and finally brush them with Wink of Stella Clear for a little extra shine!

Thanks for visiting!  I hope you have a wonderful crafty day!

About Castlepark Designs

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
