Mutli-Company Product Combinations for a unique look

Similar design across season's and occasions


When I am making purchases... or at least when I stop to think through before buying 😊, I try to think about the different occasions or seasons I could use the product for. Is there a different way of looking at this? Can I use this product in a unique way? How can this be used with something I already have? This helps me decide if this will be a never inked product sitting in my stash, a one and done use product, or something I will go back for over and over.


I created six cards using a couple of common stamp and stencil sets with two different feels. Three of the cards were created for #getcrackingonchristmas and were added to my Christmas/Holiday card stash for the end of the year.

Take a look at your products the next time you are deciding on a purchase. What can it be combined with to make something pretty and unique... and it doesn't have to be from the same stamp company.
