Meet my new love, the Everyday Occasions kit.
It's trendy with leafs, grey, mint, and banners, and yet classic at the same time. It makes 20 cards (and everyone is a different design), and still has lots of leftovers (probably enough to make another 10-20 depending on what you did). It's great for beginners--the only thing you would need is snail adhesive and scissors, or great for a quick DIY Christmas gift (ahem--no peeking!), or for keeping cards on hands. And the stamps that are included, are great sentiment stamps that could be easily used again and again.
You can purchase this kit at my online store at www.lisahenderson.stampinup.net one of two ways. The first is the kit as shown. The cost is $36.95 (plus shipping and taxes) or, you can now purchase the kit bundled with paper snips (honestly some of the best craft scissors I've ever used--these puppies are sharp! do not allow your children to use them, or your cat to run off with them (Don't ask)), snail adhesive, and a pack of glue dots for $65.00 (plus shipping and taxes).
Trust me, you will love it!
