Friends and Flowers - a Versatile Set

Stampin'UP!'s "Friends and Flowers" stamp set, in the Occasions 2016 CatalogOne thing that makes a stamp set truly worth the investment is when it can be used for a variety of occasions.  And that is certainly true for Stampin'UP's new "Friends and Flowers" stamp set.  This set is versatile enough to cover a wide variety of occasions from birthdays to babies, weddings, Easter and more. 

Just imagine all the fun playing with these shapes!

 I spent a fun weekend playing with this set and here are just a few of my projects. Of course I made some flowers too, but I started with some non-flower samples.

The face could work for lots of different animals, but with petal shapes in the set and Easter just a few months away it seemed obvious to try a few bunnies.

That sweet little baby in the peapod was next on my list. 
What a cutie!

And last but not least, a fish.  Notice the perfectly symmetrical green plants? and the perfectly cut fins?  Thats not me and my scissors - Stampin'UP! has a punch that matches this stamp set. Whoohoo! I am not one for fussy cutting!

 Thanks for Stopping by: Take a minute and browse previous posts. If you see anything you like I'm happy to help you get the product or just to consult and explain further how the project was made . . . its all about having fun with our hobby.

I love what you did with these Friends & Flowers cards! I would love to share the fish and the flower card on my blog for 'My Crafty Friends Monday' (a round up of amazing cards from amazing stampers!)! Please let me know if you would prefer that I didn't share them (of course I give you credit and link back to your blog!).
Inky Hugs!

Josee I'm honored that you ask to share my card with your readers, please do.

Sorry for the delay in responding. The blog comments come as emails and at first I didn't realize it was from the blog so I just replied to the email. I'm sure that message is sitting in cyberspace somewhere.
