Stampin’ Up! Special Reason Happy Hello

I used the Stampin’ Up! Special Reason stamp set bundle and the Tin of Cards stamp set to create a clean and simple card to share today.


My card design was inspired by CAS(E) this Sketch #203.


I started by stamping the little line image from the Botanical Blooms photopolymer stamp set in Flirty Flamingo ink repeatedly across the front of a Flirty Flamingo card base.


I cut a panel of Whisper White card stock with the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Die.  I inked the splatter image from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set in Smoky Slate ink, stamped it on scrap paper and then stamped it all over the Whisper White card stock panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Tin of Cards stamp set in Flirty Flamingo ink on the right side of the panel and then adhered it to the card front with SNAIL.


I stamped the leaf images from the Special Reason stamp set in Pear Pizzaz ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and I cut them out with the matching Stylish Stems Framlits Dies.  I inked the larger flower image in Blushing Bride ink, then used a Sponge Dauber to remove a little of the ink from the flower center.  I used a clean Sponge Dauber to add So Saffron ink to the flower center and then I stamped the image on a panel of Whisper White card stock.


I cut the flower image out with the Stylish Stems Framelits Die and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tucked the leaf die cuts under the flower and adhered them to the card front with Glue Dots.  I added a little Clear Wink of Stella to the flower center and then added a Pear Pizzazz enamel dot from the Subtles Enamel Shapes pack to finish the card front.


I inked the flower from the Special Reason stamp set the same way that I described above and I stamped it on a panel of Whisper White card stock inside the card.

  1. Simply beautiful! Love the extra details that make it go beyond just paper, like the line stamping on the background and grunge on the white. That’s the perfect flower and leaves for that design, soft and happy. Appreciate all the details and cuts! You’re the best.

  2. Love the detail of the wave cut and then you using the flower with its gorgeous accent leaves 🙂 But my favorite detail is the line stamps across the main panel, little detail that really added a lot!
