I held off buying the "Friends 24/7" set forever, then ordered it with free credits. Why did I wait so long? (Probably, as the little birdy said, "Cheap! Cheap!" I get it honestly, right, Dad??)
I used the catalog sample for this set as the springboard. Now that I look at the two side-by-side, though, they're nothing alike. Oh, ok, the background is the same technique and they both use the scallop edge punch.
I love the Poppin' Pastels background. It's very soft and "old brocade-y," I think. And it looks much prettier in person.
Here's the complete list of supplies:
Stamp set: Friends 24/7
Ink: Classic Stampin' Pads – Brocade Blue, Mellow Moss, So Saffron, Basic Brown; Stampin' Pastels
Paper: Very Vanilla, Brocade Blue
Accessories: Scallop edge punch, scallop oval punch, wide oval punch, Crystal Effects (on flowers and bird), Dazzling Diamonds glitter, stampin' dimensionals, sponge daubers
