Flower Shop Bundle

I purchased a new stamp/punch bundle from the new 2013-2014 Stampin' Up! catalog. The bundle is priced 15% lower than buying the stamp set and punch separately. This bundle is the Flower Shop Bundle. I wasn't sure I would like it when I purchased it, but after using it, I love it.

Swap cards for Facebook

I joined a swap on one of the facebook groups I belong to.  I find so much inspiration for card making there.  
There is a sweepstakes winner for every swap.  There is no theme to the sweepstakes card.    I used some retired products on my cards.  The object is to use Stampin' Up! products on your cards.  If you don't have a lot of Stampin' Up! products you can use products from other companies.  Everything I used is from Stampin' Up!

The theme for July was Birthday.  The colors I chose are Chocolate Chip (stitched ribbon and ink), Regal Rose (card stock and ink), and very vanilla (card stock).  I used the Bitty Butterfly punch and the Elegant Butterfly punch on both cards.

Current Products are available in my online store or you can contact me to order.

Chocolate Chip Ink              126979  $5.95
