That sounds like a lot when you write it all out but I've been doing Stampin' Up! for four years now and have collected the punches over time and ink pads and papers. I actually used my scraps for this card. Do you keep your scraps? If so how to you organize them? Here's what I did recently:
File folders. I wrote the color on each folder and started sorting all the cardstock I had saved. I was surprised how much useable pieces I had. It was funny too that I could pick up a piece of cardstock and know that it was River Rock, Pear Pizazz, Old Olive, Pool Party, etc. Pretty good.
So now you would like to make the card above and you actually find that you have cardstock you can use and punches already. What you really need for this card is the cute Gnome and the Happy St. Patrick's Day stamp. The doily is a great addition to any crafter's supplies. You don't have to punch out all the little pieces either. I made one and left a lot of them in. See:
You could also buy the starter kit for just $125. You can pick those two stamps plus two others. plus 4 ink pads, 2 markers, blender pen, papers, cardstock, adhesive, sponges, wheel, wheel handle, reinker, versamark pad, etc.
