Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Just a fun question. What do you do first when you are going to design a card? Do you pick the paper, or the image? Or maybe something else.Would love to hear what YOU do......

Definitely the result!  Now when it comes to organizing, however.......I think I'm doing that for the sheer fun of it.  I have reorganized my ribbons, markers, papers, etc. numerous times!

A friend of mine mentioned to me one time that she thinks I am a "process person" instead of a "result person." She meant that I enjoy doing the craft more than I want to just have a card. I think there is something to that, but I also sometimes think of the result I want (a nicely colored card, a cool background technique) and spend the time because I know that is what it is going to take to get the result I want.

Anyhow, I think it is something interesting to think about along the lines of this thread, is the the process or the result that motivates you?

I usually choose the image first, then pick the paper and cardstock.

Ooh, I do the same thing at times! The "Stuff stare-down"  LOL  Y'all crack me up!  But these thing are so true. LOL  I also can have a mess, but after a card to two or three, I have to put everything away and start from a clean desk! Too much, clutters my brain… LOL    :)

Hi All, newbie here.  I apologize for just jumping right in here without an introduction but I didn’t see an introduction thread. 

Most times I will see a technique that I want to try which gives me a general direction that I want to go or I have a specific card that I need to make for a birthday, etc.  I will admit though, it takes me such a long time to make a card.  I will make a background paper or focal image and then I can’t decide what I want to do with it.   Which ribbon to use? Emboss or not to emboss and which embossing folder to use? I could go on.  I think I have too many great products staring at me and too many choices to make.  Quite often, as others have mentioned, I will come up with an idea as I’m laying in bed or after I walk away from my craft table.  I think my mind quiets down enough at that point to come up with something since I don’t have all my stuff staring at me.   

Heidi, can you be both? Process & Result!?! I think I'm both… hehehe.

And THAT'S the material point:  The all-encompassing excuse!  No no, wouldn't want to lose that!  No remedial program for me, please!  I'm definitely with you on that one, Judy, LOL!
