Card Making For Beginners | Card 1 Thinking of You Featuring Field of Flowers

Hello friends! Welcome to Card #1 of the Card Making Tutorials For Beginners series.

The first card in this series is a fun and easy, yet beautiful card that demonstrates a variety of different beginner stamping and card making techniques.

Before I walk you through how to make this card, let me first introduce you to the Field of Flowers stamp set.

Stampin’ Up! | Field of Flowers Stamp Set

Stampin' Up! Field of Flowers Stamp Set

The reason I chose this stamp set is that while it is a great stamp set for beginning stampers and card makers, it can also be used to create some gorgeous intermediate & advanced cards.

So why is it so great for beginning card makers? First off, it meets the criteria of an easy set for beginning stampers to work with – it’s a photopolymer stamp set (so you can see through it), and the images are all solid image stamps. With solid image stamps you don’t need any special coloring skills. You simply choose an ink color, ink your stamp, and then stamp your image. Because of this, you don’t need any other supplies other than your ink colors.

Notice that this stamp set has a lot of different images and sentiments? There are 14 in all. And you can mix and match them to create a variety of different scenes for different occasions. Which you’ll see as this series progresses. And as for the greetings, I really love that there are two different font types (a clean sans-serif font and a script font), in two different sizes.

The last thing that just tickles me pink is that stamp in the top right of the picture above.  The one that has little flowers with an outline around it.  All 6 of these flowers are on one stamp and they coordinate with the Confetti Flower Border punch shown below. This allows you to add a whole other dimension to your cards.

The border punch is super easy to use with the flowers. Once you stamp your flowers, flip the punch over so that you are looking at the back of it. Align the stamped flowers with the punch shapes, then punch. Now when punching, I recommend you carefully flip the punch over. Otherwise, your little flowers will fly everywhere if you punch with the back of the punch facing upwards.

The punch can be purchased separately or as part of a bundle. When you buy the bundle, you get 10% off the cost of buying both items separately. Note that the bundle will only be available in Stampin’ Up!’s 2020-2021 catalog.

We won’t be using the punch for this card. But you will see it in card #2 of this series.

Hey there! Welcome to my blog! My name is Andrea Walford. I’m an artist and maker, mom of 5, caregiver to my 99 1/2 year old grandpa and a proud 1/2 Mexican 1/2 Hungarian “woman of color.” 

As a self-taught artist I have a passion for helping others discover and develop their creative confidence. And I have found that card making is a great way to do this.

When you make a card, your “canvas” is small. Yet it has so much creative potential. 

So if you want to learn how to make beautiful cards while developing your creative confidence – you’ve come to the right place!
