Default Floral Set Recommendation

I am trying to decide on a versatile floral set from the SU catty, but I can't make up my mind. I would love some opinions. Here are the ones I am currently going back and forth on:

Heartfelt Thanks
Petal Prints
Spring Garden

If you could only get one of those, which would it be? Or is there another floral set I should also be considering? (I have lots of other new stuff on my wish list, so I'd like to stick to one floral set for now.) I will use it for both cards and scrapbooking.

Thanks!

I would definately say "Heartfelt Thanks". Just look at how many photos (cards,etc.) are listed in the gallery for this set. A whopping 3,458. I don't have it yet but it's on the top of my list for my next order. I don't think you will go wrong with this set.

I have all three (yes, I'm a floral junkie!!) but if I could choose just 1 I would go for Petal Prints. I think it gives you the most versatility with just the pressed flower look, or as a 2 step image or just the outline (lovely colored in with markers or pencils!!) I think the leaves are also nice for masculine cards (here's one I did for Father's Day.) Hearfelt Thanks is a very close runner up, though. I personally don't use Spring Garden all that much, although it is a nice set.

Good luck with your decision!

OOh!! That's a hard one. I have all 3, but have only used PP and Heartfelt yet. I've used them both a lot. They are both very good, but I think I prefer Heartfelt thanks. I like them both!

I am going to vote for petal prints. I have all three, but find that I use this one the most. Heartfelt Thanks is a verrrry close second though.

I have all three, and I'd say either Heartfelt Thanks or Petal Prints. Petal Prints is good because you can use the print stamps for a more realistic look, just the sketchy outlines for a more contemporary style, or both together for a third look. I just love the images in Heartfelt Thanks, though! I think that Spring Garden isn't as versatile as the other two. I guess it all depends on your style.

I use Petal Prints the most. I agree that the images are more versatile for me.

I would say Petal Prints.
I don't own it but I like that one best of all the three.
I have Heartfelt Thanks and am having a hard time getting to LOVE it..
I use it and it is Okay, BUT It does not give me the WOW factor.
Somewhat a personal preference so go with the one that inspires you the most.
Not always the same as the majority..
Good Luck!!

I have all three; but Heartfelt Thanks is the besy. Petal Prints, in my opinion, does offer more versatility though (for masculine cards).

I think I would recommend Petal Prints. It is versatile and looks great every time.

This is funny....I have Heartfelt Thanks and Petal Prints but I'm dying to get Spring Garden and nobody has picked that one as the "must-have"! Maybe I don't need it after all....?
BTW, I couldn't pick between the other two sets....It's like trying to pick a favorite among my two kids! Impossible.

I completely agree! I do have one more that I find myself using quite often and also for scrapbooking--Roses in Winter. You can see examples of PP, HT and RiW in my gallery

Oh I forgot to add that I have trouble lining up HT to my liking. PP is more forgiving and RiW no need to line up!.

I totally agree about lining up Heartfelt Thanks. I thought I was the only one!! Love the set but love petal prints WAY more. The best thing to do is check out each gallery and figure out which you love more and which is more versatile.

Default HEARTFELT THANKS because...

HEARTFELT THANKS. The other 2 sets are great, too, but they've been around for a while as those came out in a Spring mini sometime ago.

I personally think out of the 3 heartfelt thanks is the prettiest. I have this one and love the way it looks. Some have said it's hard to use or line up but if you use the stamp-a-ma-jig it's great. My friend has petal prints and didn't end up liking it as much. Not to get more confusing for you. But my favourite flower set from SU is Looks Like Spring. I love the the daisy and it's fun to just stamp it or cut it out, plus it comes with some small background stamps which you can use for any theme not just flowers. I also have the punch that goes with this set and it makes things even funner. When you punch out the daisy the flower tips are curled/bent up a bit so it gives a 3D effect. Very cool, but this may be only me personal opinion.
