My favourite stamp sets

When I'm card making, I often don't know what I'm going to make until I go down to my craft room and start playing with bits of paper on my desk. Lately, I've found myself reaching for the same few stamp sets, over and over again. One of my new favourite sets just came out in this year's catalogue, and it is a wonderful all-round, general images set. Mix and match the greetings, and you have cards for almost an occasion you could imagine. I'm talking, of course, about Button Buddies.

I just love the images in this one! The flower is beautiful (and matches our 1-3/4" scallop circle punch!), and looks so good inked in many different ways. Some techniques that it looks fabulous with are the rock-and-roll technique, the baby wipe technique, and also emboss resist, then sponged with colour. Having our designer buttons match the images in the set perfectly is really the icing on the cake. This is another time where I just love Stampin' Up's coordination!

I would love to see your creations using this set.  To order, visit my website or email me. I'd be happy to hear from you. Happy stamping!
