Reason for the Season

Reason for the Season

One thing I’ve always loved about how Stampin’ Up! designs their stamp sets is the 2-step stamping technique.  I love that they’ve made it so easy to look like a pro!  And the Reason for the Season is just such a stamp set.  In fact, it’s 4-step stamping!


  • I first stamped the poinsettia using the outline stamp and Memento Black Ink.  This is the ink of choice with the photopolymer stamp sets!
  • Next I inked up the stamp that colored in the flower petals with a Cherry Cobbler stamp pad.  The stamp is designed to look like you watercolored the image, so it’s not completely filled in.
  • I used the leaf stamp with Pear Pizzazz ink, and finally, there is a center stamp, but I decided to dress up the middle with 3 Silver Brads instead.
  • The image is cut out using the Big Shot and a Circles Framelit.
  • You’ll love this designer paper called Season of Cheer – so many fun patters to choose from depending on you stamps!

Here’s a look at all the pretty prints:

  • The 1-1/4″ Cherry Cobbler Striped Grosgrain Ribbon is just begging to be used for the holidays!  I layered on some 1/8″ Silver Ribbon, too, to tie in the Silver Brads.
  • There are three different sentiments in the Reason for the Season stamp set, making it so very useful.

Here’s a look at all the images you’ll receive with this stamp set.  You’ll also see that there’s a coordinating punch for this set, too.  There are three stamps that will stamp designs on the leaves and flower petals that will then punch out with the Festive Flower Builder Punch.  Use this versatile stamp set either way!
