I made a CAS card using the Stampin’ Up! Special Someone stamp set and the Special Days Dies.
At first look you may think it is a birthday card…
But it’s a Get Well card cause the balloons are filled with HEAL-IUM !
Isn’t that just the cutest sentiment?
This set is just so sweet…
I love the little critters and how easy it is to use the two step stamping to color in the animals, balloons, and flowers. This set can cover a birthday, a thank you as well as Get Well wishes.
When I saw this photo in the Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog with those scissors, I thought…
awe, why aren’t there any dies?!?!
Well, little did we know that the Sale-a-bration Coordination Release would bring us…
the Stampin’ Up! Special Days Dies!!!
See the multiple dies to cut more at one time and that neat word bubble?
I combined two bundles in the Mini Catalog to make this card. I love the mix of neutral colors with the pop of pink and green. The great background lattice and the flowers/leaves come from the Birthday Jubilee Bundle.
There is also another lattice design in the die set that has an opening in the middle.
The other images in the Birthday Jubilee are so sweet, too.
I love the coordinating single flower and the flower spray:)
The sentiment and the labels come from the So Sentimental Bundle.
I love white embossing on black paper, don’t you?
I did cut down my card base to be 4-1/4″ x 5-1/8″ instead of 5-1/2″, and also cut my Basic Black panel down to 4″ x 4-7/8″. This just seemed to work well:)
My daughter asked me for a card that was like “sending a hug” in the mail.
So…I did exactly what she asked me in the half hour before she wanted to pick it up…
When I made it, I die cut the hugs with the Hand Lettered Prose Dies and laid them on the panel I stamped with the Flourishing Phrases stamp set. It was too flat so I thought of little pieces of dimensionals but that would be tedious and not very stable. So I put the die cut letters on some white fun foam I had. I just die cut the hugs out of the fun foam, used Tombow glue to attatch the DSP hugs, and then glued them to the panel:) It looks so good! Now, if Stampin’ Up had sheets of dimensionals we could cut out shapes…that would be awesome!
I forgot to snap a pic of the inside…a simple repeat of the flourish in the lower right corner:)
I have another cutie-patootie Stampin’ Up stamp set called Back on Your Feet-
perfect for Get Well cards!
I named the giraffe Archie.
Here is a video showing how to make this quick and easy card!
And, I named the turtle Lucy!

The Stampin’ Up All That You Are stamp set is the first stamp set in the Occasions Catalog,
and I think it belongs at the top of the list.
Isn’t it pretty?
The big bloom is just gorgeous, and the pretty posies, the foliage, and the sentiment label are cut out with the Frosted Bouquet Framelits.
Remember the Frosted Bouquet Framelits were bundled with the First Frost stamp set in the Holiday catalog so if you have that bundle, you can add the Stampin’ Up All That You Are stamp set to your collection and have two stamp sets that work with the framelits!
I paired the Stampin’ Up Well Said Bundle with the Stampin’ Up All That You Are stamp set on the outside and the inside.
