Here is the Easy Button For Getting Started – CARD KITS
If you are brand new and ready to learn card making, I recommend starting with a CARD KIT. It is the #1 card-making for beginners suggestion I have! Card kits take all the overwhelm away by putting everything you need into a kit, all ready for you to just sit down and create!
You get stamps, ink, paper, and even adhesive. The only thing you will need that is not in the kit is scissors! This is the EASY BUTTON to learn how to create beautiful handmade cards.
Each kit has everything designed for you, including all the pre-cut pieces and images you need. The kit comes with instructions plus a video tutorial.
Kits are a great way to get your fingers “inky” and enjoy a little “crafty” time. Click the button below to learn more about getting started with card kits and how to pick the one that is right for you.
Want To Select Your Own Products & Create Your Own Designs?
If you would rather start out by selecting your own products and start making cards by following my simple step-by-step instructions, I am here to help make it as simple and stress-free as I can. At first, it may feel overwhelming and you are unsure where to start, but follow along with me and take it one step at a time.
I remember being in your shoes a long time ago, and I totally started out by buying way too much “stuff” and having no clue what to do. I just saw “pretty things” and bought them, without any plan, purpose, or knowledge as to what to do. I don’t want that to happen to you! I am here to help you get started without all the overwhelm and without spending a ton of money on unnecessary things.
Once you make your first card, you will be hooked! My hope is that you will enjoy card making as much as I do, and pass on lots of blessings to others by sending them handmade cards.
Start With a SIP (stamps, ink, & paper)
There are three basic things you need to get started making cards… Stamps, Ink, and Paper. When you start small, with just the basics, it is not as overwhelming and you will soon be making beautiful cards.
My favorite way to teach card making is the SIP METHOD. Start by picking out STAMPS, then add a couple of INKS and some PAPER. When you select the right stamps, ink, and paper that coordinate together you can get started right away and make your first cards.
Card-Making is Easy If You Learn the Basics
I love teaching beginners how to make beautiful cards that are quick and easy, and not overwhelming. These articles will give you more information about the basics of card making, what you need, and how to select the best products to get started with. Remember, it’s a process and you don’t need everything all at once.
Quick & Easy SIP Card-Making Ideas
As mentioned above, if you want to start by selecting your own stamps, ink, and paper, I recommend the SIP METHOD of stamping when you start out. Below are several past blog posts and videos that I have shared highlighting SIP stamping. If you see some cards you like, use my suggestions for your first products to get started with so you can easily make your first cards.
In the card-making world, you will often hear the word “CASE.” CASE stands for COPY AND SHARE EVERYTHING. What does that mean? I love to have you CASE my cards. Copy my ideas and then SHARE THEM by sending them. The best way to learn card making is to copy card ideas that you like. I work hard to share cards that are easily duplicatable and am flattered when you copy my designs.
