I’ve already made several cards with the Special Someone Stamp Set, and I couldn’t wait to make another, using the Special Day Dies that just arrived in the mail.

Raccoon’s Special Day


The first thing I did was stamp the raccoon in Early Espresso Ink (the detailed stamp), followed by Sahara Sand (the solid stamp). This “two-step” stamping is easy to do with the Stamparatus positioning tool.

It was so much fun using the die to cut the raccoon from the Thick Whisper White Cardstock. Then, I stamped the sentiment in early Espresso Ink, and cut it with this really cute “comment” die. Since I have lots of talking animals,  I was very excited to discover this die in the new set! 


For the background, I combined Bird Ballad Designer Paper with Be Mine Stitched Dies.



Raccoon wanted to complete his sentiment on the inside with “Happy Valentine’s Day.” It’s from the Meant To Be Stamp Set, as well as the small Pool Party hearts, and the heart decorating the envelope flap.

I HAD to try out two more new dies. Isn’t that little bow fantastic? There are 17 dies in the Special Days Die Set, and if you click on the picture in my Product List, you can see all of them.


Raccoon and I thought this week’s CAS(E) this sketch would be great for his Valentine.


Thank you for stopping by. I know Raccoon is very proud of his Valentine, and was excited to share it with you!
