As you may have guessed, this new set is a follow up to Compact Sentiments. With Mother's Day fast approaching I got to work on a card:
When I say this set is packed, I mean it! There are stamps included for various family situations, including foster,in-law and step. How hard is it to find those titles included in a stamp set?! Well Compact Family has it all! I started this card with Anya's wonderful Heirloom Patterns set, using the small houndstooth pattern. The top was stamped with a sentiment and small roses from Roses in Bloom. And there is just something about pearls and houndstooth that seems so right to me!
This next card is something totally different and fun:
One of the wonderful things about Compact Family is that it's easy to personalize your cards for any occasion. For this one, I used a sentiment from Compact Sentiments and added the word "friend" from Compact Family. The chevron pattern is from Off Beat Backgrounds and the elephant is from yesterday's new set, Half Pint Heroines. I only stamped part of his body, cut it out and tucked him in behind the sentiment. I couldn't resist adding some polka dots with my blender pen:
