A conundrum. Have you had a stamp set or sets that are similar to something shiny and new out there and you feel pulled toward the shiny and new...but your conscience says you have something very similar?
I' find myself in that spot right now. Usually, I can stick with the old and forget about the new...but this time I had to play with the old to see if I'd be satisfied.
Here is my card which I have pretty much CASED from my Stampin Up Demonstrator Brandy Cox.
Her card is darling and I have one in my possession. So it was easy to CASE it.
I used SSS set Sending Happy Thoughts for the sentiment, and the blooms are from Altenew's Wildflower set. I used Altenew inks. Although I have the butterflies I didn't add them and I chose a colored card base instead of white.
Here is a link to Brandy's card - its actually a video.
The stamp sets are so similar...but the differences:
The SU bundled set comes with dies (I don't have dies for the Altenew set)
The Sending Sentiment comes as a die and stamp with a shadow layer and fits across the card front.
There is a cone flower (I love them) in the SU set.
The coordinating sentiments in the SU set are bigger easier to read and there are more than in the SSS set.
So...a decision must be made...What do you think? Thanks for stopping by.
