On Monday I told you about my 3 part series I was doing using the Dear Doily stamp set.  Well, today is Simple Stamping stepped up greeting cards you’ll love with Dear Doily part 2.  We are going to use the same stamps, the same colors and card stocks, but are adding just a little bit to “step it up.”  These greeting cards are NOT any harder, they just use a few more card making supplies and might take just a teeny bit more time!

Dear Doily Part 2

Can you see the difference in these simple stamping stepped up greeting cards?  Just added a “punched” circle with the greeting, a little embossing, Baker’s Twine and Glitter Dots.  Really was not any HARDER, just took a little more time!



Card Recipe:

  • Gorgeous Grape:  8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
  • Basic Black:  3 5/8″ x 4 7/8″
  • Whisper White:  3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″

Soft Subtle Colors


Just changing the colors changes the whole feel of the greeting cards!


Just like with the bold and bright card, I just added a little bit more….a punch circle, some embossing, Baker’s twine, and some pearls.  It’s really EASY PEASY to STEP IT UP just a little bit!

Products I Used

If you’d like to make these simple stamping stepped up greeting cards, just click any picture to go directly to my online store and order what you need.  Don’t forget my REWARDS CODE to earn FREE products (scroll down to read about it if you don’t already know!)

SPECIAL NOTE: Shortly after creating my cards for this week and filming the videos, the Doily Builder dies sold out. The layouts for these cards are so fabulous that I didn’t not want to share them with you.  The stamp set works perfectly on it’s own like with today’s cards, and if you want to add a coordinating die set, I highly recommend the EASTERN MEDALLIONS THINLITS as an alternative.

What do you think?  SIP or Stepped Up?

Would love to hear from you…..which cards do YOU like best?
