Oh, that's a hard one, Joyce! So much depends on your stamping style!! Things I use on almost every card now? MFT Kraft and Whip Cream cardstock, Kraft Ink (and as much other MFT cardstock and ink as I have!!), the Pretty Poppies, Peaceful Wildflowers or a Pure Innocence set... and I really want some of the background sets, too!!, Fishtail Flag Layers DieNamics, Hemp Cord, Blueprints!!, Notched Tag Dies, Wonky Scallop Border Die, First Place Award Ribbon Die, Flower/Leaf Trio or Upsy Daisy Flower Dies, etc., etc., etc. Of course, I use ALL the MFT dies and stamps I have plus I have a wish list a mile long, but the basics to start for me were a favorite set or two, a border die, some fishtail flags or banners, and some flowers. If I was just starting with MFT now, I'd be SURE to get as many of the Blueprints as I could afford, as well!!

What things are on your list??? Inquiring minds want to know!

Washi tape stamps and dies, the butterflies stamps and dies ( but they are a big hit to my budget if I go with those) pretty poppies stamps and dies, layered labels....the more I look the more I want!

Hmmm, my go-tos are the fishtail flag stax, star stax, any of the big sentiment sets, an image set (like the poppies or butterflies), a flower die, and a border die. I really wish I had unlimited disposable income!

Great choices! You might want a border die of some sort, too. I use mine a lot on the sketches.

I have several non MFT border dies and border punches I don't use nearly enough. But once I win the lottery....
