Want to get started with Card Making? Well you came to the right place… There are so many pretty things in the Stampin’ Up! Idea book and catalog, but where oh where and what oh what do you REALLY need when you are just getting started?

I would purchase first a few fundamental tools that you will use time and time again… then throw in a very versatile stamp set and a few embellishments to make things fun and special… all the supplies below you will reuse throughout the course of the year… and will maximize your budget!

Note: The embellished events stamp set also comes in Spanish: 128406c

Inkspirations:

1. Use the Modern Label Punch to punch out word phrases.  Affix a metallic brad on each end and affix using stamping dimensional to card underneath image.

2. Use the pearls or rhinestones to accentuate parts of the stamped image.

3. Stamp the image onto whisper white cardstock and punch out the image with the 2 1/2″ scallop punch, affix to card using stamping dimensionals.

4. Play with the stampin’ spots and taffeta ribbon… stamp the word phrases onto the ribbon and then make a bow and place under stamped image.

5. Use the smaller buttons for the flowers or wheels on the duck image.

6. Stamp three of the same images horizontally or vertically across card using a different color ink for each image.

7. Punch the scallop circle in the middle of the card…. stamp the image inside the card… place a bow on the top of the scallop circle… place the modern label punch shape with the saying at the bottom of the scallop circle.

8. Smooch spritz the stamped image before you embellish to add more glam!

9. Make a flower pot by cutting out just the cake portion of the birthday cake and turn it upside down.

10. Cut out the punched images and affix with stampin’ dimensionals to the card to create demension.

11. Take the edges of the ribbon and color them with the stampin’ dots ink to add color.

12. Affix the pearl or rhinstone to the middle of the bow.

13. Color the ribbon using the stampin’ dots and make a banner with different colored flags.

14. Make a pocket using the scallop punch on the inside of the card and place a tea bag in the pocket.  Color the edges of the scallop punch shape before affixing pocket/shape to card.

15. Add the 122737c/122735w button buddies stamp set which works wonderfully with the subtles designer buttons for more added fun!
