I have been stamping for 10 years. Alot has changed in 10 years. I have changed my style quite a bit I think over the years. I prefer more simple cards now and I very rarely use patterned paper on my cards anymore. What happened? I used to make every single card with patterned paper of some kind. I love making my own backgrounds now. That's one thing I used to never do. I love learning new techiques. I can't get enough of you tube videos.
