Upsy Daisy...again!

I have a confession to make...after I ordered Upsy Daisy, I started to regret my actions. I wasn't sure if I really liked the set, wondering if it would be one of those sets that rarely got used. Well, obviously that's NOT the case--I can't stop using it! The more I use it, the more I want to use it...uh, sounds like an addiction.

Here's my latest version of UD where I used a blender pen and reinker combo to paint the stamp, followed by a moment of *huffing* the stamp to remoisten it, and then the impression onto Whisper White cardstock. I was really pleased with the result; exactly as I'd imagined it, and all on the first try (that doesn't always happen)!



Supplies
Stamps: PTI Faux Ribbon; SU! Upsy Daisy
Paper: Pumpkin, Riding Hood Red, WW, Kiwi Kiss
Ink: same as paper, Versamark
Accessories: clear ep, RHR ribbon, round tab punch

Oh my word!! I felt that exact same way, except that I haven't moved past it yet and actually used the stamps. In fact, I gave the ones I ordered to my MIL while she was here when she ordered the set (you know, so she wouldn't have to pay $7 postage for that one stamp set.) Of course, I caved and re-ordered it for myself on my latest order, which will be here soon (I hope)! I just couldn't decide if I REALLY needed Upsy Daisy AND Pocket Silhouettes (which I HAVE to have.) Not to even mention, Inspired by Nature! (at least that one was free!) Still not sure, but I did order it again. I guess time will tell. I am glad to hear I wasn't the only one with doubts!! :-)

Beautiful card! Thanks for the inspiration, and the honesty!
