Today I'm sharing some get well cards that I needed for my stash. I want to share a few thoughts about pulling together inspiration for a project by selecting items from your built up supply of crafty goodies. A lot of times I say that "I shop my stash" and it's so true. Digging back through your collection of supplies is almost as fun as shopping for new items. Let me walk you through how I shopped my stash for this set of cards.
First, I knew I wanted some get well cards. I knew that this pretty set from Avery Elle called Petals and Stems had a new get well sentiment that I hadn't yet stamped. So I set out that stamp on my work table. I thought the flowers and coordinating Die: Petals & Stems Elle-ments dies would be fitting for get well cards too so now the entire stamp set would be put to use + some coordinating dies.
Next up from my stash I wanted to select some patterned paper so I could select a color scheme for my card. The floral paper and the aqua polka dot paper are both from the Gossamer Blue February Bits & Pieces Kit. I often like to go mixy matchy with my patterned papers and these two just looked so pretty together.
I ended up creating a little gift item for an older friend/former teacher. She had just had surgery and Eric always picks her up for their school board meetings since she doesn't drive well at night. I wrote a nice message inside the card, packaged up some of my spiced hot tea mix & added a quick typed tag with Washi tape, then inserted them both into a white paper sack. Tags and sacks are always, always items that I keep in my stash. You can find lots of varieties in my shop at all times.
