Talking What was your first ever SU stamp set?

I am so curious to know as... I just ordered my first ever SU stamp set today!!! Yippee!! Yes, I am definitely a SU virgin *lol*.

I ordered the 'wild about you' set. I totally fell in love with it when I first saw it in the catalogue. Can't wait to get it!

smiles,
laura

Fun question! And congrats on joining the SU addiction...

My first SU sets (and first stamps in general!) were Shapes & Shadows and Stipple Celebrations, a couple of years ago.

My first set was mini messages. I also split a SAB set with a friend- it had "happy bird-day", some birds and some flowers, I rarely have used either. I thought it was really cute at the time, but that the prices in the SU catalog were ridiculously expensive and I could go to Michael's for cheaper stamps. So I bought a cute, but inexpensive set to be polite. WOW was I totally wrong. Turns out SU has the absolute best deal for wood mounted stamps. About a year later I went to my second SU event (a 5 for 5) and earned hostess benefits - the stamps I ordered that day have been used like crazy.


I think I might go use mini messages today. That will be my challenge.

How fun. One of my first sets with SU was Fresh Flowers. I also bought New Beginnings and Merry Elves that same day. I remember looking through the catalog the first time and making my wishlist and thinking man am I in trouble.

My first set was Sunny Season's Greetings. It has Santa in a swimsuit and beachy stamps. It goes for pretty big $$ on Ebay but I'm not letting it go.

I also got Simply Seasonal with my first order.

Natural Beauty was the first set that I ever picked out and ordered....


I ordered about ten other sets that first order too, but pretty much Natural Beauty was the first!

I think it was Designer Greetings. It has a big Thank You with a bold design tulip beneath it plus three other stamps.

Mine was Fall Whimsy. I went to my 1st SU party and we made a card with that set, and I had to buy it so I could replicate that card since I didn't know how to make anything else!

I still love that set!

I'm really dating myself here, but my first set (purchased 9-10 years ago) was Quilts Give Comfort. Went for bang for my buck, as it was a large set of 20-25? stamps in that dotted, country, line drawing style. Made really ugly cards with it, and sold it a few years ago

My first set was called Branch or Branches. I don't even know how old it is. It's retired, and has a branch, birdhouse, flower, apples. I still like it.

If you ever do decide to sell it, you can clean it up really good with Staz-On cleaner. (I love this set too, finally got it last month!)

I got my first set two months ago, and it was simple shapes. I got 3 stamp pads to change the look, and really looks different with each one!

My next set is in the mail, woot!

I got my first set in the mid 90's. It was one stamp, and I don't know the name of it. It was a spray of flowers...looked like a swag....it's very pretty. I should find it and use it.

This is fun -- great question! My first SU set was Bold Hearts & Flowers, the foam-mounted version, in 1998!! I was strictly into UM then, so I bought the foam-mounted sets (less expensive than the wood) and peeled the rubber off the foam -- NOT always an easy task! I loved the quote and put a lot of miles on that set.

Happy trails....

Shapes and Shadows and I don't think I have used it more than twice, but for some reason I can't get rid of it. It's beloved because it was my first, silly, I know, but I'm sentimental about my stamps, they are part of the family, lol!

My first set was Nice and Easy notes almost 10 years ago. I just used the mouse stamp from that set to make a graduation card a few nights ago.
