Magical Day – stamp set of the month

Here’s wishing you a Magical Day!

In my childhood, I was always fascinated with Mermaids, Dragons, Unicorns, Knights and Wizards. I probably still am!

Now, thanks to Stampin’ Up! you too can lose yourself in the glittery world of mythical creatures and magical creations.

Inspiration:

This is my interpretation of the wonderful inspiration on pages 36 and 37 of the new Spring/Summer Catalogue.

Myths and Magic suite

Create a piece of artwork for a kiddies room:

  • With a Box Frame you could create a wonderfully magical castle, complete with the fantastically mythical characters. How enchanting would that be! I’m looking forward to giving that a go.

Why not try the little mermaid card:

  • Brayer some colour on to an embossing folder (Seaside Embossing Folder/Softly Falling Embossing Folder) before running through the Big Shot or distress your cardbase by sponging some tone on tone ink colour, before you dry emboss it.
  • Die cut the sea plants using the Magical Mates Framelits Dies.
  • Fussy cut some mermaids from the Myths & Magic Speciality Designer Series Paper.

Or the ever so cute Unicorn card:

  • Stamp and colour the unicorn using any of the colouring tools.
  • The sentiment is created by stamping the full sentiment, tone on tone to coloured cardstock. I think Bermuda Bay will have been used in the example.
  • Stamp the ‘you are’ banner on to Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut the banner to mount as illustrated. It looks like Berry Burst or Melon Mambo will have been used in example.
  • The gorgeous Designer Series Paper and Powder Pink cardstock just works so beautifully with this.

Knight and Dragon Card:

  • Wonderful Washi Tape and Die Cuts make this card fantastic.
  • Chop up and mix the sentiments. ‘Hope Your Day is’ – ‘One of A Kind’.

Some more tips:

  • Fringe Scissors would be really fab with this suite.
  • Oh and I just LOVE the Sunshine & Rainbows bundle (see page 33 on Spring/Summer catalogue). Wouldn’t this be just amazing with the Myths & Magic suite. I’m thinking Unicorns and Rainbows! :)
  • Die cutting with Layering Framelits or Stitched Shapes takes your project to another level.
  • Don’t forget to add your cardstock and envelopes to your order. It all adds up to extra Freebies!
