Center Step Card Using CTMH Flirty Paper and Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge - Damask Divas November Blog Hop

Hi all you wonderful crafters/creators out there!!  I am trying to create cards outside my comfort zone as I want to continue to learn and to grow in my creativity.  It is fun but stressful as well.  I am also trying to get better at coloring stamped and digital images.  I know it takes practice; so I keep pushing myself to choose images that challenge me.  I find it difficult to color the little things.  I wear reading glasses; but it is still challenging to see the intricate details. 
 
I am practicing my coloring with our new CTMH alcohol based markers; which I love.  You receive two markers for only $5.95; which gives you the main color plus another marker that is either lighter or darker than the regular one.  This gives you two colors for shading; which takes the guesswork out of matching them.  See page 9 of the Autumn/Winter Idea Book/Catalog for details.  The markers match the paper packets, cardstock and ink colors; which make it easy to coordinate all your colors for any project you wish to create.  

I decided to create my first center step card for our blog hop this month.  We are featuring the beautiful CTMH Flirty Paper Packet.  I love these colors and all the wonderful designs.  I hope you will take the time to visit my other teammates to see their wonderful creations.  If you came from  Marilyn's blog; then you are in the right place.  If not, you can start at the beginning by visiting Mandy's Blog.  Your next stop on the hop is Jeannie's blog.  Visit our Damask Divas blog for a complete line up of the participants for our monthly blog hop.  Have fun and enjoy the hop!!
 
Tutorial: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/centerstepcard/. Visit Desire at http://desiref.blogspot.com/ to see many examples of this type of card. She is the Queen of center step and side step cards. I love her work and I know you will too.  She has tutorials on her blog as well.

I am sponsoring November's Damask Divas Blog Hop; which means I am providing the free giveaway.  Please take the time to register for your chance to win the August Stamp of the Month; which is pictured below.  Scroll down to register.

I try to read the rules and follow them; but sometimes I still make a mistake. Have a fabulous weekend!! Hugs, Gloria
