Go-to Set

I don't know about you but when I first learned about Stampin' Up, I thought the prices were on the high side.  Oh, yes, I totally said it.  BUT, now that I've used a few sets recently, I've discovered just how versatile they are; you get a lot of stamps in each set that coordinate together and with other sets.   That is bang for your buck which, despite what my partner believes about my crafty spending habits, is what I aim for.

Check out these cards as an example.  Both use the same stamp set.  And let's not forget about these cards or this one which featured the same set too.  Bang. Buck. Love!

The Details:  SU Butterfly Basics, Hero Arts Shadow Ink Lime Green, VersaFine Onyx Black, Recollections 110lb white cardstock, Glossy Accents, gold foil washi

  8. Two beautiful CAS cards. I love how you have collaged the stamped images and using the two shades of green is a great way to add dimension. Thanks for joining us at Crafty Cardmakers. Sally.x.
