Stampin' Up! Card Ideas from Canadian Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Sandi MacIver

Special Reason and the New Glimmer Paper

Hi Stampers, today I’m sharing Special Reason and the NEW Glimmer Paper.

Special Reason is another new stamp/die bundle in the Occasions Catalogue, you will find it near the back on page 42.

It has a lovely combination of flowers and leaves, comes in clear and wood mount and you can order a combo bundle and save 10% – and get a free Sale-a-bration item – which could be the NEW GLIMMER paper.

So here is the first card I made combining all of the elements:  I have two more to share with you tomorrow:

Sandi’s Tips and Tricks:

Special Reason with the NEW Glimmer Paper Card:

  • Die cut the art piece first, cutting out the flower.
  • Then stamp the solid leaves in the background using stamped off Mint Macaron and the sentiment in Bermuda Bay.
  • Add a piece of Glimmer Paper behind the flower.  A square of 2-1/2 fits perfectly.  Use Glue Dots to hold that on (snail isn’t strong enough).
  • Attach a strip of the 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon in Silver across the bottom (another FREE Sale-a-bration choice).
  • Then I attached this piece to my card base using Dimensionals.
  • For the card base, I cut a second piece 4 x 5-1/4 and embossed it with the Petal Burst Embossing Folder before adding my art piece to it – My “background noise”, haha…
  • Use multipurpose glue to attach the leaf cut outs (isn’t that Mint Macaron Glimmer paper amazing?)
  • Add a stamped flower sponged in Bermuda Bay and Mint Macaron.
  • And the final embellishments, a splattering of small pearls and Rhinestones.
