Default What less-loved stamp set would you like to see samples of?

Are there stamp sets you have which are not big sellers? Don't know what to do with them? Do you need ideas? Maybe let all the SCS'ers know what you need samples of and maybe these creative people can come up with some ideas!!

I'd like to see more samples of Sculpted Style. I just got it and I got it only because it was the only Level 1 Hostess set that I didn't have yet

There are only 14 samples in the Gallery using this and some are beautiful, but I need more ideas!

Thanks,
Susan

How about Business Memos? I have a lot of in home direct sales clients (PC, Longaberger, etc. ) and was going to try to start focusing on this stamp set but haven't been able to find very many samples.

I would really like to see more samples of Nostalgia, Frames & Flourishes and Roughing It. I think they would be good for scrapbooking and cards. There are probably more samples in the Scrapbook Gallery, but cards would be nice!

I use the Business Memos on the inside of my folders! I stamp the "Thank you for your Business" in the bottom corner.....(a subliminal hint to BUY!!! )

Haven't used the rest of the set much yet, but I'm glad I have it at least for that...and I would think that toher DS people could do the same thing with it!

I'd really like to see more samples with Heads Up. I know it's not a popular set, but the more I look at it, the more I think it's got potential. The text blocks could be used similar to the ones in Mini Messages and Lexicon of Love, and I think the robot heads would be cute for little boy cards and scrapbook pages...

How about Star of Wonder?

I think it has potential for some beautiful knock-em-down Christmas cards! Maybe stamped in chocolate chip on gold paper? Surely there is some technique that would really showcase this set to make me say "I've GOT to have THAT!"

I agree with Roughing It and the one I always want to see more samples of is You Warm My Heart.

I'll try to post some more of my own examples as soon as I have a chance. Really, it's a great set. I've even used it for a Christmas card swap by silver-embossing the small flower and making it a pseudo-snowflake and using an alphabet set to spell out Mele Kalikimaka (Hawaiian for Merry Christmas). I used white and brocade blue card stock.

Beautiful Batik is also a great set for resit embossing, bleaching, and UTEE tiles.

I'd like to see more samples using Exotic Blooms, Celtic Knots (love this set, but don't know what to do with it) and the Flora & Fauna Frame.

Right at Home. I just bought it to make "we've moved" cards, but would like to see more of what else I can do with it!

There were a lot of us who said Business Memos. How about we do a little challenge and try to come up with as many samples as we can and post them to the group. I'll definitely be up for the challenge. I used to make Hostesses cards using "Thanks For Your Business". They were really cute. Anyone up for the challenge? We'll start a new thread if there is interest.

Robyn- great idea, I'm in... if I can find the time?!? but maybe if there's enough peer pressure I'll succumb

Default I have some of these on my site...

I hosted/participated in some drop dead fantastic swaps from SUDSOL.org over the last few years. Frames and Flourishes and Right at Home have their own separate albums on my webshots site. I also have some fun Kids at Play samples.

I'd like to see more Heaven Scent, Stardust, Fine Frames, Birthday Banter and both Wanda sets - and ANY additional Asian theme set. LOVE 'em!

Nancy

Thanks Nancy! You've got some great ideas on Right at Home! TFS! I did one similar to yours with the ribbon pulling the house across the card. But I put the three houses in a row with the third one able to be pulled across. I'll post sometime. I'm still making them (about 50) - we are moving in May.

Thanks for the ideas!!

I fell in love with "seeds of kindness" I have only really seen "1" sample that I have liked. I had such high hopes for this set in my collection. I would LOVE to see MORE samples of this set.

Default Oriental Brushstrokes too!

I think I have most of the least used sets....I have a few samples of the oriental brushstrokes on my webshots site too at http://community.webshots.com/album/175116226sHtgUj . Most are also posted here on SCS...
