First step

Ladies and gentleman, you are viewing one of my first stamping stationary creations! Ok, it's not much but it's definitely a start for this newbie stamper! I did these last night, sleepy-eyed and all.

(I'm actually really embarassed to be showing these to the public. Eeeks! )

This card is for my friend, Su. It's her birthday today! I'm a little disappointed it came out so messy. I hope she still likes it ! This is the second card I've ever made! As you can see, cards are definitely not my expertise. I have much to learn from the masters ....

This one is an envelope I did to conceal a gift certificate for Elaine. I folded my own envelope with bronze stardream paper and decided to use raspberry stock paper for some color splash. I'm obsessed with bronze ink - it's such a scrumptious stamping color!

So, how did I do for a beginner?


  1. I think it's your camera, but everything looks so velvety! I can help you take better pictures if you bring your treats over. :)

    Anyways, you are off to a great start! (You should see my first works, they are downright fugly!). Keep it up, you're getting there!

  2. i love the card val! i can't wait to see it in person! u girls are soooo sweet!

  3. i love the envelope. i didn't realize you made the envelope...very impressive
