3 Step Dancin’ with Dee … Stamp Simply Style!

Yesterday, Sharon at No Time to Stamp?, spotlighted Kitchen Sink Crew Member, Dee Jackson!

WooHoo Dee!!!!! You are Dancin’ in the spotlight!

Why is Dee “Dancin’?” … because Sharon chose to spotlight Dee’s amazing multiple step stamping work [see Dee’s work here]… or better know in the Kitchen as… 3 Step Stamping! 😀 Dee is a flower lady … and she knows how to turn paper and ink into a garden!!! 😀

So, with spotlighting Dee’s 3 step stamping, Sharon’s Stamp Simply Challenge #51 this week is focused on 2 and 3 step stamping. You can go HERE to find how to play along and to see some amazing multiple step stamped cards… including an elegant Mistletoe card from Sharon using 3 Step Holly & Mistletoe and from another Kitchen Sink Crew Member – Tammy who knows how to make 3 Step Butterflies all a flutter! 😀

Another bit a fun news…. this is a big week for Sharon… she is also celebrating her 1 year anniversary in blogland and it is PARTY TIME!!!!! YaHOO!!!! Lots of Blog Candy to be had … there is even a set of Kitchen Sink 3 Step Stamps to be given away! But you will have to go on over to Sharon’s to find out more!

So of course, I wanted to play a long and Dance with Dee! 😀

But before I show my card, I have to share my opinion about Dee and her amazing way with ribbon and bows! Honestly, I think Dee is “bow whisper”!!! LOL! So in honor of Dee’s Big Beautiful Bows… I did want to try a little something “special” on this card [… I WISH I could do a bow like Dee…. I just don’t have the touch – LOL!] …. so, I used a sailor knot with this yummy 1″ wide double face satin ribbon. 😀

[NOTE: update 5/10/12 – the link for the info on how to make a sailor knot has moved… and on their new site, the knot is called a Square Knot (Reef Knot)  or  The Reef (Square) Knot …. which ever way it is called, both links have been updated and show animated directions for tying the knot. 🙂 ]

Now for my card… thanks for looking!

  1. This card is gorgeous. The 3 step stamps gives the rose a distinct dimensional look and the leaves look almost real. But that ribbon and bow……a WOW factor. I’ve been studying it for a few minutes and however it was made up, it brings your focus to that knot. This is a card to keep. Beautiful work.
