Here are Stamping 101 and Stamping 102 cards made by my friends at our Upline Meeting. I hope this inspires you to make your own Stamping 101 and Stamping 102 cards.
MADE BY KAREN Karen used the NEW Swirly Bird Photopolymer Bundle #142353. For her 101 card she just stamped on the card base. For her 102 card she cut the card front off at 4″ x 5-1/4″ and layered it on a Dapper Denim card base. She also added some die cuts from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits. MADE BY BILLIE Billie used the NEW Designer Tin of Cards Photopolymer #141739 stamp set. I did not get a picture of her Stamping 101 card. She just stamped the words directly on the card base for 101 and added the layers (Layering Squares Framelits) for 102. She also added some Pearls for 102. MADE BY SHARON Sharon’s Stamping 101 card has everything just stamped on the card base. For her Stamping 102 card she just stamped the tree and leaves a second time on Whisper White card stock then cut it in a rectangle and layered it with the same color of card stock as she stamped the Tree in. She them punched out a small heart and layered it on the rectangle. She used the Sheltering Tree stamp set Photopolymer #137163.
I hope this gives you some ideas to either simplify your cards using Stamping 101 Techniques, OR add some layers, die cuts, or embellishments for a Stamping 102 Card.
