RemARKable Best of Greetings


Aloha and welcome to another RemARKable “Best of” blog tour!  This month’s Best of Greetings set is a keeper!  My hope is to show you how truly versatile a set like this can be especially when combined with other stamps you already own.

Maui Stamper Stampin' Up! 25th Anniversary Best of June GreetingsAh, the sympathy card…the one we want to get right, the one we want to speak louder than words.  I like the classic, elegant font of this greeting.  I’ve paired it with a little DSP from the Quatrefancy Specialty assortment and used the image from the elegant Simply Sketched Hostess set as an accent.  How many images do you have that would work here?

Using the same color scheme and same greeting, I created an entirely different look:

That’s it for Best of Greetings Maui Stamper Style…I’m sure you’re as eager as I am to see what Robin is sharing with you!  You know what to do!
