Magical Day Cards - April Big Shot Class Project

 Today's share includes three cards made using the Magical Day Stamp Set from the Myths & Magic Suite in the Occasions Catalog.  What an awesome stamp set!  I had so much fun creating these cards with the coordinating other products such as the Myths & Magic 6" x 6" Glimmer Paper (on sale now at 50% off) and the Myths & Magic Washi Tape.  By the way did you know you can color Washi Tape with the Stampin' Blends?  I colored my iridescent Washi Tape with Rich Razzleberry Dark Stampin' Blends and adhered it to the edge of my card base.  I also colored Berry Burst Adhesive-Backed Sequins with the Stampin' Blends.  Pretty cool!!!

I also used the background stamp from the You've Got This Stamp Set, which is retiring at the end of May, to give a little bit color and design on a Whisper White cardstock.

 I'd have to say this cute dragon is my favorite:-).

 The retiring Best Badge Punch works great with this fearless knight!  I love the striped Washi Tape!

Sweet Little Something Easter Card - Big Shot Class

Happy April everyone!   Hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend.   I meant to post this Easter card earlier but I failed to do so miserably.  I had super crazy 3 weeks of holding Club workshops, private workshops/classes and our very first Team Spring Workshop right after my family vacation in Whistler, BC.  Then my boy's travel baseball tournament season has finally started....  Now I am  hoping things will get a little bit more manageable for me:-)

Now back to my card...  We made this card at my Big Shot Class in March.  I hope you had a chance to earn the Basket Weave Dynamic Embossing Folder during the Sale-A-Bration.  Here I simply ran a piece of card stock through Big Shot with it but have seen some great ideas online, (i.e. pie crusts).

This bunny was stamped in three steps using the Sweet Little Something Stamp Set.  I used Early Espresso, Soft Suede and Crumb Cake ink pads.  I made an Easter card using this stamp set but it's versatile for babies and kids too.

Here is a great tip to color white ribbon and Delicate White Doilies in any color of your choice.  Just take any ink pad and a sponge dauber.  It's super easy and quick!

Supply List
Stamps - Sweet Little Something
Paper - Crumb Cake, Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Whisper White, Springtime Foils Specialty DSP
Ink - Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist
Tools and Accessories - Delicate White Doilies, Sponge Daubers, Whisper White 1/8" Sheer Ribbon
Big Shot - Basket Weave Dynamic Embossing Folder, Stitched Shapes Framelits

Springtime Foils Sympathy Card

Have you seen the new Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper in the second release of Sale-A-Bration Brochure?  It is absolutely beautiful!  I made this card using two patterns from the pack.  

I cut out these beautiful flower and leaves from one pattern of the paper with a pair of scissors and then colored them using Stampin' Blends Markers (Old Olive and Pink Pirouette).  Isn't it beautiful?  So fun and easy too!!!

Supply List 
Stamps - Better Together
Paper - Powder Pink, Whisper White, Gold Foil, Springtime Foils Specialty DSP
Ink - VersaMark
Tools and Accessories - Stampin' Blends (Old Olive, Pink Pirouette), Gold Emboss Powder, Heat Tool, Gold Metallic Thread

Sweet Little Something Easter Card

Hello Stampers!  Here is one of the cards we made at my Card Club in February featuring the Sweet Little Something Stamp Set.  This stamp set is amazing!  In fact, I was so impressed with it and I immediately thought I had to share more!  So I demoed it again at a stamp camp last week.  I just love the bunny!  Doesn't she look so real?  It's easy to get that look with three easy steps! 

Here is a color variation chart I created: 
There are three bunny image stamps.  You want to start with most detailed image with the darkest color you pick (step 1) and use the solid image for step 3. 

Helpful Tips:
  • Please note you may experience a different result compared to mine.  It depends on how juicy your ink pad is.  You may have to re-ink your ink pad or try to stamp-off if it's too juicy. 
  • Try to align your step 2 and step 3 stamp images with the triangle spot that you see on your right.  It's between her face and ear.  

I love the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper!  Ever since I saw the paper at OnStage last November, I knew it was going to be one of the products for me to order.  Silver foil adds a textured look to these handpainted designs.  Absolutely beautiful! 

To make her bow I took the Whisper White 1/8" Sheer Ribbon and colored it with Flirty Flamingo and Berry Burst ink pads using the Sponge Dauber

Supply List
Stamps - Sweet Little Something
Paper - Whisper White Thick Card Stock, Whisper White, Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Soiree DSP
Ink -  Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Memento Tuxedo Black
Tools and Accessories - Whisper White 1/8" Sheer Ribbon, Stampin' Write Markers (Flirty Flamingo, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist)



Don't forget to register for this fun filled craft event!  This is the last week to reserve your spot.  Please click HERE to register online.  It will be fun!!!
