By | Cards, Getting Started, Techniques | 3 Comments

If I could only have one ink pad I would pick the VersaMark pad.

Card Making Basics: Stamps

By | Getting Started | 6 Comments

This month we’re going back to the basics – card making basics. While there are a gazillion different folds and techniques you can use to make cards, if you don’t have the basics down then you are going to get frustrated trying new things. So to start we’re going to talk about stamps. To me the basic tools of card making are stamps, ink and paper. Sure there are lots of other tools that make things easier and more fun, but you’ll at least need these 3 things to get started. There are so many different kinds of stamps now that you…

Quick & Easy Thank You Card

By | Thank You Cards | No Comments
