Flowering Flourishes/En Francais - Artisan Kit Wedding Card

A friend of mine said that she needed a wedding card and I received the Artisan Embellishments Kit from the Spring Catalog when I was at Leadership earlier this month.  Put the two together and this is the card I came up with using the Designer Cuts Cards I bought on the SU Clearance Rack recently.

Stamp Set - En Francais, Flowering Flourishes

Cardstock - Very Vanilla

Ink - Crumb Cake

Accessories - Artisan Embellishments Kit, Very Vanilla 1/2" Seam Binding, Basic Pearls

I have cards for sale  $2.50 each for handcrafted cards.  Let me know what occasion you need cards for and I'll email pictures of some cards that I have for sale. 

Don't forget to visit my Facebook Business page, Deb's Stampin' Grounds, "like" the page by February 4th and be entered in a drawing to win a FREE set of handcrafted cards!  Good luck everyone.

Oh Hello

I saw a similar card that used punched hearts - I was in the mood for Butterflies!  Easy peasy - just punch 6 butterflies and adhere them to the card.  I added the stitching for a change of pace - don't do much sewing on cards but I would if I had room to keep my sewing machine in my stamping area.

Stamp Set - Oh Hello

Cardstock - Sycamore Street DSP from the Sale-a-bration flyer

Ink - Wild Wasabi

Accessories - Elegant Butterfly Punch

Top 5 Reasons I LOVE Stampin' UP!

1.  The cardstock, ink, ribbon, buttons and designer series paper all coordinate and make the finished product professional looking.

2. As an Independent Stampin' UP! Demonstrator, I get a sneak peek of catalogs and early access to new SU products.

3.  Cardmaking and papercrafting with SU products provide me with my "Creative Escape" and provide opportunities for art therapy.

4.  I love the people I have met and the relationships I have made through SU - both customers and fellow demonstrators.  Papercrafters are awesome people!

5.  Sale-a-Bration is the best time of the year!  Who can pass up FREE SU products?
