By | January 31, 2019
  • Are you new to stamping and would like to make some lovely handmade cards, but you don’t quite know what supplies to buy in order to make them?
  • Would you like to make cards, but are finding it difficult? E.g, you can’t decide on a design or what colours to use?
  • Do you need some quick and easy cards to make when you don’t have much time, but you would still like to give a handmade card?

Why not use a Stampin’ Up! card kit?  Stampin’ Up! have done the hard work, making it pre-cut and ready to go.  Embellishments and pre-cut die cut images are included.  There is also a stamp set and a small ink spot to use too. The kit comes with information on what to do, and photos of the finished project so that you know what you are making.
