SU Special Reason in Yellow and Blue

January 22, 2017

I just love the new SU Special Reason stamp set, you may remember this card a few posts back:


For more info you can see the card HERE.

I decided to try out some fresh, bright colors on this card. I am happy the stamps transition well with different palettes of color. It really is a great stamp set with versatile framelits, too. Notice the leaf die cuts on the first card are smaller and the leaves on bright card are larger. These leaves can easily work with other stamp and framelits you may already have. Have you ever got a set and just needed another type of leaf? I know I will be using this set a lot on its own and with other sets.


I even added a wooden element to the card when I saw the Natural Elements theme challenge at the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #82.


Thanks for the inspiration SIP:)

I LOVE the wood with the bright colors and flowers!


What about you? Which one is more your style?

SU Special Reason and Timeless Textures with Delicate Details

January 11, 2017

I won the SU Special Reason stamp set at our SU event in November. I wasn’t too excited since I wanted the Nailed it Bundle! HAHAHA But then I got it out and started experimenting with it…needless to say, it is a cool stamp set with very versatile framelits that coordinate:)


I used Basic Gray cardstock with Rose Red cardstock- I love Rose but somehow don’t use it very often. I used Smoky Slate ink for the distressed border.


The red rubber stamp has a rough surface that makes a neat slightly distressed image. You can see that on the inside of the card.


I thought the SU Timeless Textures stamp set would coordinate so well with the vintage-distressed feel of this card. Look how many images are in the stamp set!!



And, of course, a touch of lace just finishes the card! That lace image comes from the FREE Sale-a-bration item called Delicate Details. Order $50 and get this FREE!
