New Card Maker? It is Easy and I Can Teach You With These 3 Steps!

I love to help and teach those of you who are a new card maker how easy it is to make beautiful handmade cards. You don’t need a lot of time and supplies to make beautiful quick and easy cards to send to family and friends.

If you are a new card maker, you are in the right place to learn. I can teach you how to get started, what supplies you need, and how to make that first card. Don’t be overwhelmed and follow along as I teach my method of SIP stamping. STAMPS, INK, and PAPER are all you need to start! (oh, and maybe a punch as I used here!)

In today’s video, I share the complete process of making a card from beginning to end. I start with tips for cutting your card base, as well as how to cut the layers for your card. Then I have tips for getting your images straight as well as how to make fun backgrounds! You can do this when you follow along and create cards using the SIP method of stamping.

4 greeting cards made with the Stampin' Up! stamp set called Circle Sayings. Each card is a simple designed meant for a new card maker to be able to make themselves. Each card has a stamped image on a white circle that is layered on a card base.

Are you ready to learn how easy you can make quick and easy cards? The Circle Sayings stamp set that I am using for these cards gives you such a fabulous variety of images that you can make cards for all occasions. You can use any colors and just put the different stamps together.

Let’s start with the video…

If you are a new card maker – this is for you!

(or anyone wanting to learn some great tips to make quick and easy cards!)

I hope that the video tutorial showed you how easy it is for a new card maker to make quick and easy cards without a lot of supplies. I really encourage you to start with a SIP (stamps, ink, and paper) and as you fall more in love with this new hobby, you can venture out and get all fancy dancy!

What You Need

The first card I shared in the video was this Happy Birthday Card. I started from the very basics of how to cut the card stock and figure out what size to cut the layers.

For more information about cutting card stock and layers, check out my Guide to Cutting Cardstock.
