You don't need to have a whole assortment of ink or paper to get started making cards. I always advise people starting out not to worry, but to collect ink and paper a step at a time. Starting out myself,I typically bought 2 colours at a time. Then on my next purchase, I added another 2 - that would go nicely with my first two. All of a sudden, my options went from two combinations to eleven! By the time I added 2 more colours - well, you see!
First set shown is the popular and recurring stamp set, Winter Post , (skaters ) shown with the Medallion XL stamp in the background. I really love this green and white ribbon too - I am definitley going to buy some!
Then the lovely Serene Snowflakes stamp set accented with half-back pearls (Pretties Kit) and Whisper White ribbon.
