Mermaid Cards Made with the Magical Day Bundle

Magical Day Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Mermaids are a hot trend with little girls.  I have that on good authority from my 3 year old granddaughter, Brooke.  She even has a new Mermaid Toothbrush!  You'll also find that mermaids are trending in fashion and toys.   Mermaid party themes are also hot.  Mermaids are just one of the reasons that I love the Magical Day Bundle for Card Making and Scrapbooking.  There's plenty to interest boys too.  See the knight and the dragon in action here.

Magical Day Bundle Stampin' Up!

My problem today, was that I had 2 Mermaid Card Ideas and simply couldn't decide which card that I liked better.  See for yourself.  Which Card do you like best?

Magical Day Stampin' Up!

The Cards are similar, but different.  For this card, I used the Sweet Soiree Decorative Masks with Embossing paste to make my background.  Hint:  To make my embossing paste green, I added a few drops of Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I colored the mermaid  with Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers.  She's mostly Pink Pirouette with just a touch of Old Olive for her tail.  The Stitched Shape behind her is Blushing Bride.

 For my second Mermaid Card, the background looks more like waves.  Hint:  I created the background using the Ruffled Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder and Blushing Bride Card Stock.  So what's your vote?  Let us know in the comments of this blog post.

Color Challenge

The color inspiration for both cards came from this week's Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge CC670.  Karen chose Blushing Bride, Pink Pirouette and Pear Pizzazz and for dessert she chose lace.  I guess that I didn't technically use lace, but the Delicate White Doily looks a lot like lace to me.  Love these Karen's Pretty Soft Color choices.  It's sure to be a lovely gallery this week.  Join us for this week's Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge Here.

Sliding Barn Door Card with We Must Celebrate

Sliding Barn Door Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

The Sliding Barn Door Bundle gets my vote for favorite bundle in the 2018 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog and that saying a lot, because there's lots to love.  There is so many possibilities if what to make with this bundle.  Over Christmas I made these fun Anniversary and Birthday Cards with the Barn Door Bundle, but today I used the sentiments from the Barn Door Stamp set, the Sliding Door Dies and added a few cute critters from the We Must Celebrate stamp set to make this fun Barn Door Slider Card.

The Door Slides to reveal the second or inside message.  So Cute!  I haven't made my own video yet, so I'll share the Stampin' Up! Barn Door Video.

 

 Brandi from the Stampin' Up! Home Office gives lots of tips and tricks for using the Barn Door Bundle.  Hint:  I thought that coins were too big, then tended to stick out, so I purchase some smaller washers at my local hardware store.  The washers that I used were about 3/8" in diameter. 

The Paper PlayersColor inspiration for today's card came from the Paper Players.  Love those colors together.  For my plus color, I added a teeny bit of Berry Burst.

9 Steps to An Amazing You Card

Amazing You Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Happy Friday!  I wanted to make something special to celebrate some team member accomplishments and what better way to celebrate than with FREE Product!  Today's card was made with the Amazing You Stamp Set and the Celebrate You Thinlits dies with were both Free Sale-a-Bration Rewards.  And rumor has it that the Celebrate You Dies will carry over to the Big Annual Catalog in June.  Anyway, back to the card.  It's a card that just sort of evolved.  Let me take you through the steps to making this card.


Amazing You Stampin' Up!

9 Steps to an Amazing You Card

Step One-The first step was that I wanted to try the Eclipse Stamping Technique with the new Celebrate You Thinlits dies.   It's really easy to do.  First, I cut the "celebrate" from a piece of Whisper White Card Stock.  Then I backed it with a piece of Night of Navy.  Then, I cute "celebrate" once more from a piece of Lemon Lime Twist Designer Paper and layered it over the whole thing.  To make the Lemon Lime Twist "celebrate" a little stronger, I mounted it on the Whisper White Celebrate before layering.  Yes, step one has multiple steps, but isn't it gorgeous!

Step Two-I stamp a burst of sunshine with Lemon Lime Twist Ink directly above my celebrate.

Step Three-Using Night of Navy Ink I stamped a couple of flowers from the Amazing You stamp set.

Step Four-Also using Night of Navy Ink I stamped "Let's" above the "celebrate".

Step Five-It just needed some ribbon, so I sewed a length of crumple Night of Navy Seam Binding and a snippet of Delicate White Doily.

Step Six-To make a Lemon Lime Twist accent, I punched some leaves with my Leaf Punch.

Step Seven-With my aqua painter and Lemon Lime Twist Ink, I painted a light wash.

Step Eight-Adhesive Backed Tutti-Frutti sequins 

Step Nine-A Whisper White Baker's Twine Bow
