Hope you had a fun weekend :) . Mine was relaxing as I finally got a long-overdue pedicure with my BFF! A few chores, some grocery shopping and meal prep and a bit of crafting and BAM - weekend over. I have a busy week ahead (3 classes and an all-day conference/class I'm teaching) so I'll be scheduling videos for you to watch. Today, however, I'll share two adorable projects I made this weekend just to whet your appetite for a bundle you might not realize you need *lol*. Check these out ...
Yes, the bundle in question is called Magical Day. It is $60.25 CDN (pre s/h/gst) and comes with the set and the framelits ...
There are other items in this "suite" that are a must-have, as they coordinate perfectly and make cards and scrap pages a breeze! They are the Myths & Magic Designer Series Paper ($17), the Myths & Magic Washi Tape ($8.00) and the Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper ($20.50)
Right - so those are the products you need. Back to the cards ...
Standard card base in Whisper White
I stamped the sentiment in Berry Burst and then punched it out with the Starburst punch ($22.50). I only recently bought that punch - I somehow missed that it was new in the 2017 catalogue! You need this punch ... and the other new one, the 2/1/4 circle punch, which is what I used for the Lemon Lime Twist circle behind it.
I punched out the unicorn with the framelits and colored the mane with my Blends ... but to do it again I would just use my markers, as the stripes are so small you can't get much of a shading effect using the Blends. Save the time and trouble and just use markers.
I ran a strip of scrap through the Big Shot using the Oh My Stars embossing folder. The silver glittery-starry strip on top of it is the washi tape, as is the Dazzling Diamonds strip behind it.
I popped the circles up on dimensionals and used my fine tip glue pen to glue down the unicorn. I added three sticky backed sequins for a little pop of color and fun to finish it off.
The wizard card took me considerably longer to pull together. I think mainly because I was tired ... and I was just playing... enjoying the process. As I said, I started with Suzanne's card for inspiration then started to play.
The top whisper white piece is actually quite small - 4 1/2" x 3 1/4"
Dapper Denim layer 4 3/4" x 3 1/2"
Pool Party layer is 5" x 3 3/4"
I started by stamping the sentiment on scrap paper. To ink the image I stamped it in Pool Party and then took a finger dauber and added Dapper Denim to the stamp along the bottom to give it an ombre look. I stamped it and cut out the word Magical" using the banner framelit that comes in the bundle. ** . Note - at this point the "I hope your day is" isn't stamped (other than on the scrap ... that we won't be using)
Then I made the Wizard. I stamped him I Memento ink so I could use my Blends. I cut him out using the framelits. I used the Pool Party Blends for his clothes and the Ivory Blend for his hands and face.
Once he was done (I didn't tape him down yet) I stamped the stars (in Pool Party and Dapper Denim). I then popped him up on dimensionals.
For the "Hope your day is" I used my Stamp-a-ma-gig and Dapper Denim ink to position it just so.
I added a bit of washi tape to go under the "Magical" and then popped the "Magical" up on dimensionals.
I used my clear Wink of Stella to his beard and moustache and a few thinestones to the stars.
It was time consuming but I just love how he turned out. SO cute!
I wanted to make more and more cards using this quite of products alas, I was tired and my back had had enough so I'll have to carry on another day. I DO hope these products make it into the annual catalogue in June. I want to play a LOT more with it but I have so many OTHER great new toys to play with I know it will have to wait a while.
So that's it for today - off to grab a shower and "officially" start my day (been up since 4:00 but that doesn't count! lol)
I hope you have a stampy day - pop in again this week to check out some videos of other new toys you need to see! TTYS
