These were super fun projects and I know that you are going to love them. Here’s a look at today’s featured projects and in this blog post I will give you some tips & tricks on how to recreate each card as well in the blog post.

Beginner Crafter Level Card:

For each of the projects today I used the same card sketch. Let's start with the beginner level or simple stamper first. This is a person who may be just starting out, or someone that just wants to create some super quick and fast cards.

For this card I cut a piece of Sahara Sand Cardstock in half and scored it in half. I then cut a piece of Basic White Cardstock and stamped the compass image from the He's All That Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink to create my own designer series paper. I then decided it needed just a little more so I added in the small button stamp to fill in the open areas. I then took the cardstock and cut off a section on each side. I attached the two smaller pieces on the side of the card base and the larger one in the center.

I then added a sentiment stamped in Early Espresso Ink onto a piece of Soft Succulent Cardstock. I popped up the sentiment with Stampin' Dimensionals to finish the card.

Casual Crafter Level Card:

A casual crafter my have a few more supplies then someone just starting out, and may be a little further along on their crafting journey. So, for the casual card I used a card base made from Sahara Sand Cardstock. Instead of stamping my own designer series paper I used a piece of the He's the Man Speciality Designer Series Paper.

I cut this piece of DSP the same way I did the simple card. I cut two smaller pieces from the ends and attached those onto the card base and then the larger one in the middle.

I then took a piece of Early Espresso Cardstock and punched both ends with the Banners Pick A Punch. I then added a sentiment stamped in Early Espresso Ink onto a piece of Basic White Cardstock. I punched out the layer with the Lasting Layer Punch.
