While staying in the UK my granddaughter Alyssa is taking much more interest in my blog posts. She’s watching me work at the computer and enjoying seeing the projects I have made. She and I have very similar tastes in stamp sets and like me was sad to see the Special Someone Stamp Set is retiring. So at Alyssa’s request here’s a quick reminder of some of the projects made using images and/or sentiments from this set.
First up there’s this quick and easy thank you card in basic black and white. Of the three animal images in the Special Someone Stamp Set the raccoon is most definitely my favourite. For more details of this project see my blog post Special Someone sneak peek.
Next, something much more colourful, a sponged bookmark featuring the mouse and a teeny tiny butterfly. This project is explained in my blog post The sweetest country mouse.
After making the black and white thank you card I decided to use a similar layout for this get well card. Creating the balloon was simple using the outline and solid images with the two-step and stamping off techniques. This project and the techniques used can be found in A simple but punny get well card.
SPECIAL DAY COORDINATION
While the black and white raccoon was sweet, I must admit the brown coloured version is even better. This gift tag uses quite a few dies from the coordinating Special Day Dies that are also retiring. I love all the layers on this project and they are explained in Saying it with a speech bubble.
The Special Day Dies were also used on this unusual shaped gift tag. The tag base comes from the Painted Labels Dies which I’m glad to say are in the new 2021/2022 Annual Catalogue. Details for this tag project can be found in my blog post Spring flowers bring a smile to my face.
Finally there’s my most recent get well card. This one takes advantage of the speech bubble that is included in the retiring Special Day Dies. This may be the die I’ll miss most from that set. If you missed this project, see my blog post Special Someone for some heal-ium.
It was only as I was putting together this post that I realised I haven’t created any projects using the squirrel image from the set. Never mind maybe Alyssa will help me do that later.
Here are quick links to the stamp set and dies in my online store, just remember they’re now only available while stocks last.
