Inspired by Color Special Reason Birthday Card

Today’s birthday card is a pretty combination of two new stamp sets that work beautifully together.  Special Reason Stamp Set and coordinating Stylish Stems Framelits Dies were used to create the bold flower.  They are available as a 10% off product bundle. The sentiment is from the Birthday Blast stamp set.  These products are now ALL available in the Occasions Catalog.  The pretty and preppy color inspiration comes from my Stampin’ Pretty Inspired by Color Pinterest Board.  Be sure to check this color board often…new color combinations are added regularly.  Not Quite Navy is retired so Night of Navy worked just as well as a substitute!


  • The pattern from the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper collection creates a sophisticated backdrop to this card.

  • Embossing the sentiment in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder lets the snazzy font shine!
  • Give it a Wink!  The flower is stamped in Flirty Flamingo and brushed with clear Wink of Stella for a rich shimmer.
