What type of paper crafter are you?

Hi all! I just got back from the Stampin'Up! On Stage event in Orlando this past weekend and it has left me inspired and has seriously renewed my passion to craft! 

So, I would love to hear from you...what type of crafter do you consider yourself? Are you a beginner that's curious and intrigued about stamping but don't know where to start? Or, are you a casual crafter that likes to create things with a purpose, like cards for birthdays, holidays or occasions? Or, would you say you're the ultimate crafting enthusiast that loves using all the gadgets, hoarding accessories, stamps or paper because they are too cute to pass up, and you just have the love for crafting and making things because they make you happy?

Personally, I have to admit, I fall into the last category.  But you know what? The cool thing is, that whichever type of crafter you relate to, something magical happens when you start creating. No matter what level you are, there is that sense of pride and accomplishment that makes you feel good, right? It's that "Look what I made!" feeling, which keeps us going and creating more.

Well my dear friends, for today's post I'm sharing 3 cards that I was inspired to make using the Hand Delivered hostess set. Isn't it so cute? I love this girl and the balloons! Here's a closer look at these 3 cards:

Here's a simply stamped card with images colored in with Stamping Blends. Just a smidge of ribbon to dress it up a bit.

Now, here's another version of the card slightly stepped up - stamped background, a little glitter paper, and punched sentiment.

And finally, a little more stepped up. The background is embossed, and I've added a few more accessories like the metallic thread and sequins.
