Introducing myself to the world of cards!

Hi everyone! Recently I've been visiting a lot of blogs that either have chanllenges or their authors participate in challenges. I've been wanting to participate, but I'm not sure if I have enough time to create layouts every day! lol
Anyways, I've seen many beautiful card sketches that I'm tempted to start creating cards too, I don't own a lot of stamps, but I thought that I could start creating a card with printed images. Since I didn't have any idea on how to start, I found a blog that has challenges and tutorials, it's called Just Magnolia. Their Design Team creates beautiful cards!! They have a tutorial on how to create a card step by step, with images on how to color a stamp and make it look like a 3D image. This tutorial was created by Debbie, you can go to her blog to see the beautiful work she does with cards. Here's the card she created in the tutorial:

I've realized that you don't need to have a lot of material, just paper, prismacolors, glue and scalpel or scissors. I'll share with you later the first card I've made following this tutorial.
Happy scrapping everyone!!
