"You Are an Angel"

The mini stamp set we have for you this month is

This month for my theme it's step cards!  they are fun to make and come in all sizes and orientations so let's step out this week!  I have two fire-tastic cards for you today.
 First and my favorite is the original step card .... it's a simple accordion fold that everyone can do with ease.  check out the background piece on this's reverse soot stamping.....what fun!  this card fits so well because I actually caught my card on fire!  lol!  yes, first one did catch fire but I practiced and then I love this technique.  Now for my second step card I stamped directly on the step just for fun and added some paper I textured with an embossing folder. Click on my pictures to see it bigger! Continue on to Janine's blog to see the fires she can start or better yet put out!
