Canada Inks Up! Blog Hop - Stepping up Symbols of Fortune

It's time for the Canada Inks Up! Team Blog Hop!  Today we're sharing projects featuring products from the 2022 January to June Mini Catalogue.  

I have two cards for you featuring the Stampin' Up!® Symbols of Fortune© Product Suite.  This was the first suite in the new Mini that I absolutely knew I had to have!  I love everything about it!  My projects today are 2 versions of the same card - one features just ink, paper and stamps and the second is stepped up and adds layers with Designer Series Paper and embellishments.  Both beautiful (in my opinion)!  What do you think?

Wouldn't you love to receive these cards in your mailbox?  Leave a comment on my blog post.  I'll do a draw from those commenting and I could be sending these cards your way!
