Default What's your favorite SU! set?


There are so many sets I would love to buy, but don't usually remember. Was wondering what your favorite SU! set is? The one you use the most? The one you find most versatile for a majority of projects? Feel free to post different sets for each question.
tia!

I really love A Rose is a Rose, because it's just so pretty!!

I use Elegant Cheer quite a bit, too, because of it's versitle sentiments.

I LOVE Eastern Blooms because it's so chic!

Snow Swirled is really great for Christmas or any time of winter, because of the snowflakes that the set also comes with.

I hope that helps!

I'm going with "Lovely as a Tree". It's a great set for guy cards and you can use it for any season.

Priceless and All Holidays. Then maybe add a flower set, then a birthday set.
Really, we all could get buy with a few key sets like those but for some reason we don't want to try!

That's like asking which one of my children is my favorite! I don't know if it is my favorite, but I have sure used the heck out of that set. Wild About You. I've used it for birthdays, babies, weddings (for a wacky couple), and even a mother's day card. Just about the only thing I have never used it for is sympathy. For more elegant cards, I really love Always and have used that a lot too.

Lovely As A Tree.
I have never made a bad card with this set even when I was starting out.

Voila. That French chef can hold anything/everything according to the occasion. I've even used him to hold a car ... but that's a different story.

Really? More power to you with that set. I can't make anything with it to save my life. I'm glad it is getting some love!!

My vote is for Lovely As a Tree and Baroque Motifs. You can make anything with these two sets. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them!!

I don't have Lovely as a tree either (although I've seen beautiful cards made with them). I saw it in the SU catalog over a year ago I think, but like a said, I love to color. I like lined print stamps (non-solids) so I have a LOT of space to color. I especially like Whipper Snapper stamps for that reason.

Lovely as a Tree and Winter Post are tied in my mind, and they go great together!

I like Carte Postale and Delight In Life (this one was an SAb set). After all these votes for Lovely as a Tree, though, I am putting that one on my new catty order! I have always looked at it and wanted it, but I thought I wouldn't be able to DO anything with it.

I have about 75 SU sets (maybe more... I stopped counting at 75!) and the one I use over and over again is Itty Bitty Backgrounds. They are just right for adding a little texture. After that, well, it would be tough, but I would say Close As a Memory is a great set. Even though it's designed for sympathy cards, I have used the flower stamp many times for birthday cards as well.

I guess it would HAVE to be Lovely as a Tree. Just soooooooo versatile. But I have over 165 sets so it's hard to pick just one.

If you look at my stamp sets you can tell that it is a tie between Lovely as a Tree and Baroque Motiffs.

I love Wild About You, great for kid's cards, scrapbook pages and otp items too - not sure if it's current in the US or not?

Favorite Stamp set, that is a hard one. I guess I would have to say, Touch of Nature. Just a beautiful set and so easy to work with. I do love Lovely as a Tree and have used it a lot, actually made about 30 Christmas cards with it.

For me it's Lovely as a Tree, Touch of Nature (retired), Abundant Joy (retired) and Blooming Beautiful! I also really like Crazy for Cupcakes!

My Ex looked at his Lovely As A Tree Father's Day card and said, "Well I guess it looks like a tree."...Totally burst my bubble. But he is gone and I wish I had my set back!!!

One of my big, big favourites is the Wonderful You set. I just love two step stamping. It is such a versatile and stylish set, I never get sick of it. However I made a set of notelets for my demo and she sent me Lovely as a Tree in exchange and I just love that set too and am still finding new ways to use it. My other huge favourite is Trees Three which I have also used loads and would never part with.
