For this particular Sketch Starter, I wanted to share some tips and tricks to successfully mix and match different stamp sets. I’m sure you’ve wanted to mix and match imagery before, but sometimes it doesn’t work out – the images just don’t look right together. Well, I have a few quick rules of thumb to follow that will get you mixing and matching perfectly!

This first design mixes Build-a-Flower Larkspur and Build-a-Flower Fuchsia. See how they look like they’re meant to be together! Even the vase from Versatile Vases looks like it’s from the same set!

I had a great time thinking outside the box on this one! See how the text looks like a cake stand? Adding in a few journaling pen lines really makes the look come to life. Of course, the Build-a-Flower Fuchsia and Layered Cupcake images look great together too!
