Today’s post is a bit different. I’ve got Cardmaking & Stamping Basics: Where to Start!!

Recently I have had a lot of questions about the basics of card making and stamping.  Everyone starts at the beginning, and I know it can be overwhelming at first.  What stamps?  What inks?  How to cut cardstock?  The questions go on and on…..  So, today, instead of sharing a project with you, I have put together into one post a series of videos I did awhile back called STAMPING BASICS.

Even if you have been stamping for awhile now, some of these videos may be helpful to you.  You just never know what tips I share to make it all “quick & easy.”

Cardmaking & Stamping Basics: Where to Start:

Grab your favorite beverage, get comfy, and spend some time learning today.  I hope you find all these videos helpful!  And remember, if you have any questions–just ask!  I love to help YOU learn to make quick and easy cards!!!  So, let’s get started….

It all starts with paper!!!  

In this first video I talk about how to cut your cardstock and figure out sizes to cut it!



What is the difference between clear-mounted and wood mounted?  What are “clear” stamps?  This video will answer all those questions.

So Many Adhesive Choices

This is partially personal preferences, however, certain adhesives really work better for different things!
