Exclamation Novice Stamper!

Hi~ I'm a new stamper who really needs help, knows very little, but has a lot of desire!! I only have 2 Stampin' Up sets (Along the Shore - retired) and (All I Have Seen - retired) along with limited supplies and I would like to make some special cards that are geared towards a beginner like me. Here's the catch---I want to impress my out-of-state stamping pro friends with my creations. I will be seeing them very soon. Now how's that for a challenge!! Any suggestions???? THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP. RochelleH

I don't have either of those sets, but did you check out the gallery for inspiration?? When I'm stuck using a set, I go there.... If I find a layout I like, I use it, but with different stamps and colors. Good luck!!

Absolutely, check out the gallery for those two sets and COPY THEM!!! You'll get a feel for how it should be done that way.

minimal colors, cool card!!!

if you have some bleach in the house, this would impress...

this one is lovely, and not a lot of supplies....

Just tweak the colors if you need to, have fun!!!

Check out the gallery for those stamp sets. And remember that often, simpler is better.

why don't you make a criss cross card, or a pocket card with those sets. Those would be lovely!
