Mixing & Matching Craft Room Supplies

Rooted in Nature Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Sometimes when you have a craft room full of wonderful supplies, it's fun to start mixing and matching.  That's what I did today making a Get Well Card for my son, Bryan.  He's my baby boy and he has really been hurting with back pain that goes clear down into his legs.  Granted my baby boy is 28, but still it hurts knowing that he is in so much pain.


Mixing & Matching Craft Room Supplies

But ...let's get real.  When you mix & match so many Craft Room supplies,  your work area will probably look something like this.  You know what I mean.  The space where you're working gets smaller and smaller and yet you keep creating until you simply have to tidy up.


Autumn Get Well Card

How many stamping and crafting supplies can you identify on today's Card?  Hint:  All supplies are from Stampin' Up!.  I even used a stamp set that would normally be considered Christmas, but not today.

Card Hints and Tips:

To color the trio of leaves, I first stamped with Cajun Craze ink, then I colored and blended Mango Melody and Cajun Craze Stampin' Blends.

To make the green and yellow leaves, I first stamped with Pear Pizzazz ink, then I colored and blended with Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends.

My card base was sponged with Balmy Blue ink, before laying down my pieces and parts.

Hint:  Layer and arrange everything on your card before you actually begin glueing and taping.  This allows you to wiggle things around until you are pleased with the results.

My tree ring was stamped with Crumb Cake ink, fussy cut and edged with Soft Suede ink.

I separated the ends of my Braided Linen Trim for a pretty effect.  The Take a Pick Tool saved lots of time a frustration in picking up tiny sequins.  I added a tiny dab of glue to my bow tails to keep them in place and to prevent them from obscuring my sentiment.

Here's another tip.  When a card front is loaded with this many elements, it's a good idea to to keep the inside simple to prevent an overwhelming, crowded look and to give the eye a break.
