2 Easy Options for Getting Started

Card Making Kits

If you are brand new and want to get started making cards without purchasing a ton of supplies, Stampin’ Up! offers some amazing kits. These kits contain EVERYTHING you need. There are many to pick from, so you can select one that suites your style.


Select Your Own Products – Start with a SIP (stamps, ink & paper)

As you look through the catalog I am sure you are saying, “there is so much STUFF! Where do I even start?”

With the right products you will be able to begin creating without being overwhelmed. Let’s take a look at these basics – stamps, ink & paper (start with a SIP)


1 – Select Your Stamps

First select a stamp set or 2 that you like. Depending on your “likes” and what type of cards you want to start making, look for something versatile and that includes “greetings.” Here are a couple of my favorites for getting started.


2 – Pick Out Your Inks

Next, you need ink. Depending on the stamps that you select, you will want at least 3-5 different colors + Black. If you need help deciding on what colors will work best for the stamps you select, let us know – we are happy to help.


3 – Select Your Paper

One of my favorite recommendations for starting out is a package of Note Cards & Envelopes. These cards are 3 1/2″ x 5″ and perfect for getting started. You get 20 in a package and they include the envelopes. These are perfect for the beginner as you do not have to cut anything. They are ready to create a card!

Or, start with a few basis: Basic White card stock, envelopes, and an assorted pack of colored cardstock.


Basic Tools & Supplies

Besides Stamps, Ink and Paper, you will need a few basic tools and supplies to get started.

Make sure you at least have the recommended size blocks for the stamp set you select. Best value is to purchase the block bundle–then you will always have everything you need!

Simply Shammy makes cleaning your stamps easy.

A good paper cutter and scissors are a must, as well as adhesive. My favorite “go to” adhesives are the Multipurpose Glue & Dimensionals.


Don’t Be Overwhelmed

The biggest mistake that many people make is becoming overwhelmed with TOO MUCH STUFF. Start with a SIP, get the essentials and start making cards. We all start someplace.

Once you have gotten the basics and began to stamp you will soon fall in love with your new hobby and be ready to expand your stamp collection and supplies.

Remember – start with a SIP! To start, you need STAMPS, INK & PAPER.
