One stamp set (Incredible Like You) makes cards suitable for the beginner, casual or avid cardmaker
For the Beginner:
In designing this card I had in mind a fictional person who had taken their first steps into cardmaking by purchasing the gorgeous Incredible Like You Project Kit (Occasions Catalogue 2019) and associated products.

A simple card using the Incredible Like You stamp set - suitable for a beginner
This card includes simple stamping and requires minimal products (the inks and stamp set that my fictional person already owns after completing the Incredible Like You Project Kit plus a Shaded Spruce ink pad and a pack of Subtles A4 cardstock).

For the Casual Crafter:

This clean & simple card featuring the Incredible Like You stamp set uses
two step stamping and masking - suitable for the casual crafter
I've added a Petal Pink ink pad and a pack of A4 Whisper White cardstock to the product list.

I've also added a couple of new techniques:  Masking and two-step stamping

Tip: Stamp the flowers first, mask them, then stamp the other images before removing the masks.

For the Avid Crafter:

Combining the Incredible Like You stamp set with foliage cut with the Bouquet Bunch Framelits Dies
This card includes some more products and tools that an avid crafter is likely to already have in their craft room such as a Big Shot Die Cutting Machine, if not - they'll want them!

There's also another couple of techniques - a little bit of Out of The Box die-cutting and some stamping off

Tip:  I added some colour to the die-cut foliage by using a small paintbrush (or aquapainter) to pick up some of the Shaded Spruce ink left on the stamps.
