I’m spending time sorting items at my childhood home and came across some very early, and most definitely pre Stampin’ Up!, cards I made. Today I’m going to share them with you.

I recall learning how to tear this fibrous mulberry paper...

More mulberry paper -

Starting to buy up punches

Stamping images and cutting them up into tiles -

Discovering blender pens to use with my watercolour pencils instead of a brush...

Fell in love with this stamp and bought a cloud stencil to go with it. I still have the stencil!

Using 2 masks together as embossing folders. Stamping on acetate and using a tissue paper technique on them - 

I won’t ask if you think I’ve improved or not! But I’ll be sure to share any more I find.

Have you still got some of your very early cards? Are they very different to those you make now?

Now I need to get crafting and planning for our next class.

Happy crafting,
