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

Special Reason Stampin Up

Hi stampers, my share today is created with the Special Reason Stampin Up Bundle and the Glimmer Paper Assortment from the Sale-a-bration Brochure #2.

It’s You Tube Tuesday, so there is a video below for today’s project along with the cutting instructions and product list for you.

Special Reason Stampin Up card combined with the Sale-a-bration Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack

I love how the sparkly glimmer paper peaks through the beautiful die cut that the Special Reasons Stampin Up bundle creates.

Of course I went a little over the top by embossing both layers of the card fronts as well for some added interest, and those leaves, I am totally in love with the leaf dies in this set.

The Special Reason Stampin Up Bundle can be found on page 42 of the Occasions Catalogue.  With 14 stamps and 11 dies it’s a great set with amazing possibilities.

It also comes in clear or wood mount stamp choices.

of NOTE – there are three ways to use these dies:

  • There are two dies for each of the flowers so that you can create a flower cut out like the orange one on the bag.
  • You can use just the detailed flower die to cut a Peek a boo as I did for today’s card
  • You can stamp and cut out a flower as I did with the smaller flower on today’ card

    Sandi, Thank you so much for making this video I just finished making the glimmer card you made a couple of days ago. So very pretty. I could not figure out how you made the flower and embossed it. Ended up with Bermuda Bay stamped off.

    I planned on making one in Raspberry next and NOW, I understand your trick for making the sponged flower. Love it…. I appreciate new ideas and two toned flowers!!
