New To Stamping? Where To Start?

Are you a new stamper and don’t know where to begin?  Does the amazing Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog overwhelm you with all the things you can buy?  I have been stamping for ten or more years and it can still overwhelm me!  I have an idea for you.

First, you need to decide what kind of cards you want to make.  Most people start to stamp because they want to make thank you cards or birthday cards.  Whichever is your choice, you will need a few basic items to start.  You’ll need some cardstock, ink and stamps.  It really is as simple as that.  Below are some examples of some simple thank you cards you can make and they didn’t take a lot of supplies at all.

To make these cards, all you need is a stamp set (I used One Big Meaning (page 41), Note Cards with Envelopes (#131527), one ink pad (pages 169-171), one pack of cardstock (pages 169-171) and a pack of Designer Series Paper (pages 172-174). If you want to make birthday cards all you need to do is change out the stamp set.  I would recommend Confetti Celebration (page 12).

If you purchase these items, you can make up to 20 cards.  If you want to make more than that, all you will need is to purchase additional sets of Note Cards with Envelopes.  There is plenty of the other supplies to make a lot more cards.

It is as easy as that!
