Hand-Penned Petals - Favorite stamp set ever!!

Yes, I said it; the Hand-Penned Petals is my favorite stamp set ever!!  And as I have been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator for 25+ years, that’s saying a lot!.  Not only do I LOVE the stamp set, the coordinating Penned Flowers die set and Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper are the BOMB!!

Hand-Penned Petals - My favorite stamp set ever

Did you notice the amazing Designer Series Paper?   And just like the stamp set, the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper is amazing!  I know, I know it is pretty easy to say something is amazing.  However, just check it out—every single piece of this paper is special!   Sometimes, I’ll only like one side and not the other.  But, without a doubt, I am head over heels for both sides of every piece.

Hand-Penned Petals - Favorite set ever

By any chance, did you notice the design on the Basic White cardstock tied with the Fresh Freesia Ribbon?  That is the new Stitched Greenery Die!  So cool!  Just run your cardstock through the die, and you, too, can have a great background.  Pretty amazing!  I am hoping the Hand-Penned Petals – My favorite stamp set ever, is now yours, too!
