Daisy Lane for the beginner, casual and avid stamper!

Stampin' Up! has determined that there are 3 types of crafters, or stampers out there.  The first is the beginner stamper, the one that may or may not do any stamping at home.  I did a quick and easy carder the beginner stamper:

As you can see on this card, it is just one layer -- stamped with just 2 colors of ink and 3 stamps total.  So easy!

This next card is good for the casual stamper, the one that has a few supplies at home, but otherwise just dabbles in stamping:


This card is a couple of layers, but is just stamped, punched and cut -- nothing too fancy but still a nice card!  (I goofed though -- the 1 3/4" punch just retired!  😪)

The last card is better fitted to the avid stamper.  Some of the layers are embossed with the Big Shot, and the shapes are cut out with framelits.  


I added a couple of simple embellishments too, just to perk it up some more!  Would you want to still make it more "avid"?  I think you could emboss the "smile" with clear embossing powder.  That would add some more "avid-ity" to it!!  

Below is my supply list and the card "recipe". Happy stamping!  Let me know what you think!!
