Default Pocket Silhouette or Upsy Daisy

Which stamp set do you prefer from the two listed? I am torn between the two.

Oh goodness that is a tough one!!!

I have Pocket Silhouettes and LOVE it - it is so versatile and I've used it a bunch already...

But then I have just ordered Upsy Daisy too as I just couldnt resist as I have seen some fab techniques with it - for me they are both must haves as I can see them being used SOOO much - that plus they are both on sale for $16.11 right now making them a good deal

Good luck with your decision making...

I think Pocket Silhouettes is way nicer - there wouldn't even be a question for me .

I have Pocket Silhouettes and love it!! Moreso than I thought I would. It is very versatile. I love how you can use it as the main image or as a background. It also looks really nice stamped on the corner of an envelope.

I too was so torn between the two - and was forcing myself to order JUST ONE of them. So I picked Pocket Silhouettes and stand by that decision. Of course, I was going to call DS the next day and see if I could just add Upsy D to the order, because I 'forgot' to order it, but decided against it. yes its on sale, but I can wait to order it when I need to - I'm a new demo and don't have real parties yet, and belong to a stamp club with another demo that I really don't want to drop out of yet, so I can order it through her if I need to later. But I do love them both!

I have both, just got them. I have used Upsy Daisy several times now and have yet to ink Pocket Silhouettes. I do think I will love them both equally...

I love this thread...I've been grappling with the same issue. I bought Upsy Daisy because it was on sale...but really like the Pocket Silhouettes and thought about getting those before the sale ended. Also popular with my customers was Heard from the Heart and Eastern Blooms. I have a feeling that I'll be ordering the Pocket Silhouettes before the month is out too.

I love both sets, so I am no help, sorry. I just love to stamp and make cards. Now I am making 6x6 calendar pages and am doing a workshop on them. I have 20 people sugned up so far and will use both sets.

I bought Upsy Daisy ... and next week will probably buy Pocket Silhouettes ... since it's on sale and it's so nice.
Apparently I need to work more hours to pay for these sets!

Well, I will be no help either, because I will be getting both, along with inspired by nature. I guess if I had to choose, I would pick the one that had sentiments I would use.
I'm guessing you can't go wrong with either choice....

Can anyone describe how big the Pocket Silhouette images are? They look AWESOME but then I am wondering if they are smaller than I am picturing....

This is my fear as well. For some reason I am picturing them very small.

The pocket silhouettes are pretty small. But they're beautiful!

I purchased the pocket silhouettes set. I think the upsy daisy is interesting, but it's limited to the one main image. I thought the pocket silhouettes was more versatile because they could be used as individual images, as a background, or in a group. In fact I just made a card with this set yesterday. Here it is if you are interested.

As others have said, I couldn't decide so ordered both!

However, if I had to choose just one (before I ordered the other later ), I would choose Pocket Silhouettes. The reason for that would be it's versatility - four stamps with 4 different looks. Upsy Daisy has 2 basic stamps so there are less design options. Just my 2 cents worth...

Funny! I had just called my demo before logging on to change my Stamp Club order to include both Pocket Silhouettes AND Upsy-Daisy because I could *not* make up my mind!

If I could only have one, it would be Pocket Silhouette. which was in my August SU first order! I beleive I'll eventually get Upsy Daisy in September while its still on sale; but my preference is Pocket Silhouette.

Upsy Daisy is being shipped to me right now. I chose it because of being a larger stamp and will make more of a statement. I have other sets that are small and can be used like the other one.

I am looking online at the catty, so I don't know if the size I am seeing is exactly correct...but sounds like it is! Thanks for the replies!

Tough decision to make without knowing what else you have. . .
For instance, I have stem silhouettes ---- but I still got both Upsy Daisy and Pocket SIlhouettes. . . Now I just have to try to use everything I have!

I'm just thankful this sale is such a long-term one, lol! Gives me time to spread out my purchases and still get the sale price. Yup, another one here that advocates both sets...

I recently ordered Upsy Daisy. I was debating between Upsy Daisy, Pocket Silhouettes & Fresh Cuts. When it arrives, I will play with it and then I will probably wish I had ordered Pocket Silhouettes! But that's ok because I have until Sept. 30 to get the 15% off. I just picture all of them making beautiful Thanksgiving cards!

If you belong to a stamp club, can you order one set this month and get the other set next month? This way you can have both!
