I LOVE all the cards!!! So vibrant and fun!

Helen said...

wonderful bright, happy cards, Allison! I love the rainbows!! Stay safe! :)

Kristie Goulet said...

Gorgeous cards, Ally! I especially LOVE the last one! Hope you are doing well! xoxo

Carol S said...

Love your cards! Best tip for a newbie is to start small to see what you will really use. Maybe try various inks to see what works best for you then concentrate on that line.

Barb said...

I love the bright colors of these cards--it does put a smile on my face! Thanks for participating!

Tami said...

The best tip I could give a newbie stamper is that you don't need it all at once. Start simple and use what you have before you buy it all. I don't like to color but prefer solid images and step-stamps that I can add dimension with. However, I see all those beautiful alcohol ink creations on the web and I have a collection (rather large!) of alcohol stamps that I never use! I wish I had spent more time perusing You Tube to see what style of stamping I really gravitated to and would have been buying supplies that way. I have over 200 ink pads and could definitely have done with a lot less. Start small and work up -- that is my best tip!

Unknown said...

The cards are beautiful thank you for sharing for new card makers dont give up patience and practice

Sprytebyrd said...

Hi! Beautiful cards! Thanks for sharing! For a newbie, I would remind them that mistakes don't matter, the recipient doesn't know what it "should have" looked like, just that it's beautiful and the thought is the most important.

Ashlee said...

Woah Alison these are amazing.... love the patterns and the colours so super awesome!!

MelissaKlepser said...

Great use of Catherine Pooler stamps and inks. AWESOME

Kim said...

I really love the colors you used in your cards. My favorite are the two cards you used the globes on. I like how you added other things to the globes other than "land".

Joyce Stuart said...

Newbies, watch videos first. Learn as you go. Keep it simple.

All your designs are beautiful.

Justin Averill said...

Oh my goodness!! Your projects are so beautiful, and there are so many amazing color palettes used!!

Denise Mlady said...

Fun cards! I love the stenciled rainbow. I would say just to buy good paper, a nice set of inks that work for stamping and watercoloring, and a few basic stamp sets to start. Play around and see what you like before you jump in and buy all kinds of supplies you may never use.

Monika Skinner said...

Best tip for a newbie stamper ... is not to boil the ocean, often keeping things simple has the biggest impact.
Beautiful set of cards, very inspiring. Wishing you a wonderful day.

Priya said...

Colourful and beautiful array of cards

Donna Hawkins said...

Beautiful cards and sure does spread joy. I loved your globe card and the amazing sparkle on it. Great job and thank you for the joy!

Paula W said...

That globe of flowers is adorable. Love the colors!!!

Ashley M said...

Your cards are so bright and cheery. I love them! I have no tips for beginners because I'm a beginner myself.

Christine said...

I love your bright cheerful cards. I would certainly tell a new stamper to research products before purchasing them and to realize that a well-planned collection of tools, stamps, and dies can meet your crafting needs.

Tenia Nelson said...

Super AWESOME cards!! Thanks for sharing!

Kathy said...

My advice is to invest in a good black ink and quality paper.

Nicole said...

Beautiful cards!

Michele Gross said...

Swoon! I love all the happy colors and patterns, great cards!
Newbie stamper advice: You don't have to own every tool to have fun. Start slow and just have fun. You have lots of time to build your arsenal of tools, without breaking the bank and overwhelming yourself from the start.

Elizabeth Roberts said...

Beautiful cards. My advice to a newbie is there are no accidents, just a reason to embellish your cards!

Karyn said...

Your cards will definitely spread some joy with all the happy cheerful colors😊

Uniqueme114 said...

What would I say to a newbie? Hmmm..... I'm a newbie myself but some advice I was given was to no compare yourself to others. Try different things and you will eventually find "your style". Start out slow and don't feel like you need to buy "everything". You can make beautiful cards with just a few items. Thank you for sharing your creations! Lisa

MariLynn said...

Beautiful, colorful cards. I especially like the one with the globe. Thanks for sharing on the Spread Joy Not Germs Bloghop. Blessings.

Mary Ellen Lounsbery said...

OMH! The chevron with glitter!

Ann Cifaldi said...

The best tip I can give is never give up. Take your time. You can do it no matter how long it takes. You never have to buy everything. Another good tip it get catherine pooler inks don't waste your time and money on any other ink. You can do anything you can dream of with her inks.i was going to give up on stamping until I found catherine pooler products.

Diane said...

Such beautiful cards. I especially like the one with the world on it!

Katelyn Balkum said...

So bright and pretty. Love the use of the globe.

Gail said...

Dawn said...

I love the chevrons with all the sparkles. That is just beautiful.

Susanne Wichert said...

I love the colors and the globe stamp.
Advice for newbies: use a soft surface under your cardstock when stamping. Like funfoam.

Betsy Calvin said...

For the newbie stamper, watch a lot of videos of different crafters, each has tips and tricks and you find your style. Thanks for sharing your ideas! Loving the colors!

*Vicki* said...

Such happy and coloful designs here! I love them all!
The best tip I can give a newbie is not to be so critical of yourself and give yourself time and patience...just enjoy the process. TFS!

Gina K said...

Love your brightly colored cards! One tip I'd give a new stamper is that perfection is boring...there are no mistakes, just opportunities for more creativity.

Linda said...

Beautiful cards! The flower would make a great Mother's Day card.

Lisa said...

That globe card took my breath away! Love the colors and the flip! They're all great! And a tip for a new stamper... when inking stamps, remember to tap not smash your stamp into the ink pad. You only need to ink the top of the stamp not the block. ;-)

Cheryl said...

Wendy said...

Start with just a basic black ink pad. You can do so much with that.

Jane said...

Gorgeous rainbow cards, I would say the best tip is to never give up and keep practicing, as practice is all it takes! Stay safe and thanks for being a part of this fab hop xx

Cheryl said...

eautiful cards! I especially love the colors used on the first.

I would say to find some stampers that have styles you love and follow them for tips and tricks. This is especially true with coloring images.

Inkon3 said...

Beautiful projects!!! My tip to a new stamper is to just have fun, and if it things don't turn out like you had hoped, try again, it's only paper :) Also, don't throw your project away, chances are if you put it aside and look at it later you might be pleasantly surprised at what you see! It's also fun to look back at old projects to see how much your style changes. (((hugs))) ~ Fleurette

Cindi said...

Beautiful cards! I think sparkle makes everything a little better. Thank you for sharing.

Becca Yahrling said...

Great cards! I love the last card with the rainbow strip
and the gorgeous globe.

Vickie jo said...

I always love to see your creations, and these cards are fantastic, as usual. Thanks for being a joy-spreader!

Laurie said...

Thanks for sharing these beautiful cards. I love the sparkle! My advice to a newbie is to keep things simple. One versatile stamp set and a few inks is all you need to get started. Then watch all the great videos out there on different techniques and try what you like. Otherwise, it's easy to buy too much and get overwhelmed.

deb c said...

First, LOVE your cards! So fun and beautiful!!
What I would tell a newbie is play around, watch lots of technique videos and just have fun!

Cat Arenzana said...

Beautiful cards! I especially love the one with the globe. My advice to a newbie stamper invest in high quality card stock, ink, and a MISTI.

mamawcindy said...

Love your cards. The globe card is so neat how it opens up. Your cards are full of joy. Stay safe!

Cheryl Heard said...

Love your cards. Being a newbie stamper myself, I think the thing that has made the biggest difference for me is a stamp positioner! I realize it is a big expense but if you are serious about the craft it is a game changer!

NancyBurch said...

Best tip EVER: invest in a Misti stamp positioner. Changed my life. 😀

Leen said...

I just love your bright and colorful cards! One of the best tips I can give a new stamper, you really don't need everything. lol learn from my mistake! lol

Jo Ann Lovell said...

Your cards are so bright and cheerful. Love how you did the globe. Thank you for sharing.

Pam Bertouille said...

Best tip. Have fun learning one technique at a time. Love your bright colorful cards

paperplay said...

Love all of your cards. For a new stamper, start simple, a good set of versatile stamps with a good set of sentiments, and a few inks. Try several styles and colors, watch videos and remember every stamper started with nothing and had to practice.

Lisa said...

love that globe! beautiful cards - my best tip for a newbie is, you don't really need to have all the things in a collection right off the bat. You'll end up with ink colors you'll never use just taking up space, for example. Take the time to learn and develop your style so you'll know the product that are "collect all the things" worthy, lol.

Kerys said...

Gorgeous cards. love the pops of colors! My tip - have fun! x

Mcscrap said...

My best tip is to remember “it’s only paper”. My mother and I Always say this when we mess up. There is plenty more paper(card stock) in our stash to start over. Everything is not always going to be something that you like. Throw it out and start over. After all, it’s only paper.

Lori said...

I would say to watch videos and don't be afraid to try things.

Unknown said...

I like your cards. They are so cute.

Juli Hisey said...

Love your cards-especially the globe! My tip take a class and buy a stamp platform this will help to avoid frustration!

Vickie said...

Make what makes you happy.

Joanne G said...

Such bright and cheerful colors on the cards. My tip for a newbie would be don't buy a ton of supplies right away. Start with a few inks and stamps and start from there. If you're ever stuck for inspiration go to youtube or Pinterest! Thanks for sharing, Ally.

Lori Kobular said...

Your cards are all so colorful, cheerful and happy! They all made me smile! Thank you for the wonderful inspiration! Stay SAFE!

Mrs. Lowry said...

Beautiful cards - I love the rainbow and the surprise globe. My advice to a new stamper would be to not be afraid to experiment - every piece is a work of art!

Nathalia O. said...

Love your fun energetic cards! Love what you did with the globe card. My best tip for a beginner stamper is hop in, get inky and have fun!

Inspired Cdn said...

Fun cards! I love the colors and the interactive element of each one.
My advice to a newbie stamper is to start with a small number of stamps & ink, and to play, play, play. See what you like, what you don't, and what you DISCOVER 😉

Sarah said...

You don't have to buy all the things lol

Kelly said...

oooooohhhh chevron WITH glitter! LOVE THAT ONE

Chellynn said...

thank you for the inspiration. I'll be back. Newbies go simple at first, there's so much out there. You can get overwhelmed. Get inspired and go from there.

M said...

Great cards. Love the bright colours and the touch of sparkle. To a new stamper I would say buy stamps that are versatile, can used for numerous occasions.

Elizabeth said...

best tip...find inspiration from others who have been doing it longer but give them credit!

Joyce said...

Love love the colorful cards and my fav is the rainbow one! Thanks for sharing!

Phyllis said...

Love your designs. The first one reminds me of my Tupperware bowls :)

Unknown said...

Best tip... don't be too hard on yourself...we all started somewhere. If it was "perfect" it would not be a handmade card...

Amanda Wilcox said...

All of these cards are amazing! The rainbow globes are my favorite I think. But I truly love it all!

A.Rose said...

Wonderful stamped backgrounds! Such bold sentiments...fantastic.

Scrapbook13 said...

The flowers on the globe are super cute!

Connie Lutz said...

Lovely cards. The globe one is fabulous ❣️

Andi Z said...

Thanks for such joyfully, colorful cards! My tip for a newbie, find someone with lots of stuff for you to try. The hobby can be expensive, but start with the basics. Oh, and it's all art - no mistakes in crafting.

Mari B. said...

My tip would be to keep trying different stamps until you find a brand that really works for you

Judy F. said...

I'd say the best start for a newbie is to watch as many YOU TUBE videos you can--just search "stamping". And thanks for doing your part in the blog!

MaryEllen said...

lovely cards I am enjoying the hop

alpeg said...

This is a fantastic idea

Sarah said...

Lovely cards, the globe one is my favourite. To a newbie stamper, I would say get a stamping tool. They are game changers, not to mention paper savers.

Jenny McGee said...

Just jump in and try it. Use good stamps and ink, don't try the cheap stuff. Thanks for lifting me up during this difficult time.

abhoneyab said...

Great ideas! I love this hop! Take care and stay safe!

Jane Harrah said...

I just think it is wonderful what you and all the companies are doing to bring light and cheer to stampers. Thank you so very much.

Debra said...

Best advice to a new stamper would be only you know it is not perfect. The receiver only sees the thought and care you took to make the card for them.

Hadassah said...

Stamp from your heart there are no rules just go for it!

Kraftsbyus4u said...

Best tip would be to jump right on in and start a stamping!

Debi Lowery said...

Thank you for sharing such happy cards. Love the bright colors.

Marylin S said...

I love your “spin” on the globe!

Jean said...

Darling cards and perfect for this amazing hop! Thanks to everyone who has come together for this event!

Emily O. said...

As a newbie, my biggest suggestion is to stop comparing and just create. Do your own thing and try not to compare your work with others.

Best tip is to just jump in and get started! Your style will develop and change along the way!

Crafting with Andrea said...

Your cards are wonderful. I am in love with the world globe card. I love how it opens up! Thanks for sharing.
For the newbie stampers, I would let them know that casing cards, or copying, is totally fine.

Billie Sue Woolley said...

Thanks for sharing cards with wonderful vibrant colors. Tip for newbie. Buy slowly and get top quality rather than quantity.

Terri said...

I love all of your cards. Very pretty. What advice I would give a new stamper is to keep in simple and go for it!

Marie Bingaman said...

The best tip I can give would be to invest in a stamp positioning tool. It makes a WORLD of difference! Beautiful cards! :)

Susan said...

Love all of your creations, but my favorite is Rainbow World. Does all our hearts good to give AND receive "happy" these days! Thanks for sharing!

Dedra Edwards said...

Thanks for sharing.

Annamarie's Blog said...

Jessi Brown said...

Jessi Brown Such beautiful cardd, thanks for the inspiration and chance to win!

Jessi Brown said...

Jessi Brown- best tip is to not overwhelm yourself by buying too much!Start small

Dawn Spengler said...

So pretty and colorful!❤️

Unknown said...

For first time stampers I would say to invest in good inks. Your images will be more vibrant and your work will last and watch other stampers on their social media...so many tips and techniques!

Teresa Godines #6857 said...

Pretty cards. Love the bright vibrant colors. Best tip for a newbie.... Get a stamp press. It is a life saver. Thanks for sharing

Beans827 said...

Beautiful colors! Looks like a ton of work. Nice job!!!

Denise said...

Such pretty colors in all the cards. Thanks for sharing them. Newbie tip - just keep practicing. Every time you stamp, you get more familiar with the stamps, dies, inks, etc. Practice does make perfect!

CAlderman said...

Don't give up! Practice stamping and watch the heck out of YouTube videos!

ckd said...

Beautiful, colorful cards. I have a couple of the stamps sets you used, so thank you for giving me ideas.

Lisa Byers said...

Such colorful and happy cards. My advice would be don't think you have to go out and buy everything that you see the designers using. Buy the basics and start there. As you get better, start buying a few things at a time and practice. You don't have to have each watercolor set or alcohol markers you see. You will end up with a craftroom full of stash when you should be concentrating on learning.

DyannT said...

Beautiful cards.....love the vibrant colors💕

Connie said...

Love your colorful cheery palettes on your cards!!! Use each item you have before you purchase something new and see if you can purchase a small amount of something in a category (i.e. ink, embossing powder, dies) of a certain brand because not all inks, embossing powders or dies are created equal. Thanks for the inspiration :)

Blankina said...

Ohhh what a great cards pretty colours amazing design!! My tip to a newbie stamper? Experiment and let you inspire by more experienced stampers like you for example. Hugs Blankina

Unknown said...

beautiful. Love the flower globe!

Karen B. said...

Gah! These bold geometric designed cards are amazing!

Karen Letchworth said...

Your cards are FAB, and so inspiring. I'd have to say that my tip to a newer stamper would be twofold. First, I highly suggest buying a Misti to help with placement, etc. The other tip I like to give new stampers is to be brave and to give things a try. I often need this advice myself. There are no "mistakes" that can't be fixed, and learning is half the fun. Thanks so much for your wonderful inspiration here today.

I'm not on the blog hop list, but I am participating as part of the Paper Sweeties DT if you'd like to stop by and see my project. Hope you're staying safe and healthy.
Blessings,
Karen Letchworth

Sue Cooley said...

I would advise not to buy everything at once. Try a few brands of both inks and stamps and see which ones you like the best.

Lynn McAuley said...

Such gorgeous creations, Ally! Each one, unique and beautiful!

nascargirl58 said...

I love the glitter with the rainbow colors. I have only been stamping for a few years. The best tip - there are so many wonderful people that share their craft on youtube, in blogs, etc. Seek out the ones that give beginners the basics -- having someone explain the various inks, papers, types of stamps was very helpful. I live in a rural community and the internet was so helpful in getting started. Pin your finds to Pinterest!

Beverly said...

Your Cards are beautiful! The world is amazing, with all the sparkles, too. Wonderful Cards!

NJ Stamping Queen said...

Fabulous assortment of creative cards! I love every one of them. Thanks for inspiring me today!
:) Marie

Laura P said...

stampcz said...

Newbie stampers must practice, practice, practice! The more you stamp the more you learn, but don’t be too hard on yourself and have fun!

NeeterN said...

Love the globe/rainbow card! So cheerful!! My tip for a newbie...start slowly - you don't need everything all at once! Get the basics first then gradually build from there as you find what you like/works best for your style. You also don't need to buy every new thing that comes out!

Teresa said...

Best tip for newbie stampers just to keep stamping and don’t worry how it looks because it is handmade...
Love all your cards.

My Red Hen said...

Your glittery rainbow is so pretty!

NatQuebec said...

Very beautiful colorful cards 😊 I am sending cards too.

meRilin K said...

I love the rainbow card :)

Kari S said...

My best advice is to try new techniques and don't be afraid to make a mess!

Betty Lou said...

Oh, that globe is fab! Love color combo on the lovely card ! Thanks for sharing!

Judy Inukai said...

Beautiful cards. Love the rainbow card. The best tip I can give a newbie stamper is don't buy everything in sight. Visit some blogs and stamp companies, decide what styles work best for you then find a set that has sentiments for several occasions (birthday, sympathy, thinking of you, hello), find a set with some nice, easy to color flowers and a set with some nice masculine images.

Sandy said...

Love flower stamps and yours its beautiful. Thank you.

Kim B said...

Love all the bright and beautiful cards. I would tell the new stamper to get stamps that have images and sentiments and invest in a good line of inks.

Amy Hoptay said...

Love Amber’s World and your lift the flap design.

Laurie K. said...

Love the bright and cheerful colors you used in your wonderful cards. Tip for a newbie is to start with something that inspires you - stamps, dies, colors, etc.

Lynne Dillard said...

Reallly nice cards. Love the rainbow card!

Lois said...

Beautiful cards, Allison! I especially like the layout of the third one with the rainbow and globe.

Christjana said...

My advice for a new stamper is do not over think it, just do it. Love the bright colored cards. Inspiration to send some happy mail to my friends.

Jill said...

Love the use of all those vibrant colors and the touches of sparkle!!

Darlene DeSario said...

Love them! Is that sparkle on there? The colors are so bright and vibrant and the message front and center. Tyfs!

Monika/Buzsy said...

Such pretty cards Allison. Love the cheerful and pretty colors. Those flowers are gorgeous! The rainbow strip does put a smile on my face! Thanks for the inspiration. God bless!

Jennifrann said...

Ally, I just love the fun and cheerful colors on these cards! So fun and great for this theme!

Sugar Land Scrapper said...

Love the globes with the rainbow arrow strip. So bright and cheerful!

Dawn said...

It's just paper! Don't be afraid to experiment. Love the cards!

Sandie Duggan said...

For newbies...welcome to the world of crafts. There is a world of product out there for you to enjoy, so try not to overspend...lol

ksplumlee said...

I love the rainbow card. Helpful tip to a newbie would be to start small. If you see something you like, try it. If you find out you like it, go for it. Don't go into it thinking everything will be for you. Everyone is different.

Dawn said...

Love them all. Bright and cheery! Thanks for sharing

Paper Hugs by April said...

My Helpful tip: Do not feel as though your project has to be perfect. It's homemade art it is going to be wonderful.

Love the globe cards- the glitter strips in background are striking :).

Anne said...

I do love the bright and cheerful colors you used on your cards especially since it is such a gloomy day in the mid-west. Thanks for sharing!

DJ said...

Love the cards I would tell anew stamper to Do whatever makes you happy and others will like it too !

MadeByMeghanK said...

Such amazing colors and designs! Love the glitter!

Virginia said...

Very pretty and bright cards!

Carmela said...

Love your colorful creations!!

Farley said...

Oh such gorgeous cards. Love the “lovely” card and it’s background. Stay safe and keep well.

Laurie said...

Beautiful cards!! I think some advice I would give a beginner is to look for inspiration and "copy" what that inspiration is. This can promote skills and techniques that you will us through your crafting time. I do this through blogs, pinterest, youtube, and instagram. So much to look for!! I also use sketches-pinterest and google searches-for inspiration.

Jamie said...

All your cards are so cute! I especially love the card with the globe! Thanks for sharing!

Jane said...

Wonderful cards. I love the globe. Going to have to CASE that one. Pinning it for future reference.

Heather said...

These are all fabulous!!! I LOVE the first one with that bright, happy background and the last with the fun rainbow border and the beautiful globe!

Reneeleeak said...

A tip for a newbie stamper would be to make sure that you clean off your stamps after each use.

Jane said...

Wonderful cards. I love the globe. Going to have to CASE that one. Pinning it for future reference.

Chrystyna said...

Love the cards and thanks for sharing them with us.
My advice to a newbie card maker is to start simple, do not be afraid to make "mistakes" or changes to the original design since sometimes they turn out to be the best cards, use what you have and do not worrk if your card is not perfect so the best part is have fun!!!

Ebrown said...

Love your cards - so bright and cheerful. Especially like the globe card.

Karen Hoskins said...

Your blog has such a wealth of information. I must come back and explore some of the tutorials and fun projects in more depth. I love the cards you shared. I LOVE the rainbow world card. I have always had a soft spot in my heart for rainbows. Thank you for sharing.

Aunt Denise said...

Love the fun, happy geometric shapes! Thank you!

Karen Hoskins said...

oops...best tip for a newbie is to not be afraid to experiment. Your work will not look like anyone else's even if you find cards you are using as inspiration. Just be you and have fun.

Tammy Reagan said...

Great cards, love getting new ideas

Christy Marks said...

Love that rainbow chevron!! Best tip for newbies.... don't compare yourself to everyone else and just have fun!

Ava Gavloski said...

great collection of colorful cards

PinkLadyCarol said...

Love your cards — I’m all about flowers and sequins now! Advice to a newbie... start out slowly. Find a stamp set you like, pick out several inks that would work well with the stamp set & “play!” Watch YouTube videos for techniques.

Teresa said...

Ooooooo, the rainbow card is sooooo pretty!!!

Laura Peddicord said...

All of your cards are terrific! Best tip for a newbie is to slowly make your purchases. Just because you see a technique or a stamp used on a beautiful card, does not mean there are additional ways to use them so they make cards in your style. There may be other ways they can be used but they may not be the way you want to make your cards.

Melanie said...

Beautiful cards! One tip I would suggest is to buy quality products that may have a higher price point such as heavy card stock because less is more when it is a better quality.

Eve N said...

All your cards are great, but my favorite is the rainbow globe. Not only is the chevron rainbow so cheerful, but the sentiment under the globe is a special detail.

happyscrap said...

Your cards are delightful! Makes me smile. Thank you.
