Magical Day Class

Magical DayToday I am featuring a set of  kids cards that would make a Magical Day birthday party for kids.  These cards are stunning and feature a variety of techniques.  They feature the Magical Day stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog.


Here is a sneak peak of one of the cards.  This card features the Wizard and the Unicorn from the Magical Day stamp set.

The Clouds in the background of this card are made with the cloud stencil from the Pattern Party decorative masks and the Shimmer White Embossing Paste on a piece of Soft Sky Cardstock.

The Wizard and the Unicorn are stamped on Whisper White cardstock and colored with markers.
They are then cut out using the coordinating framelit dies. 

The sentiment “Hope Your Day is Magical” is stamped with Lemon Lime Twist Ink and cut out using the Layering Oval Framelits.  This is layered on Scalloped Oval cut from the Lemon Lime Twist Glimmer paper that coordinates with the Myths & Magical Designer paper.

The Wizard card is just one of 5 projects that is available with this set.  Other cards in this set include a shaker card featuring mermaids, a second is a quilt card featuring a mermaid.  There is a cute card with a dragon attacking a castle.  Another card with a wizzard and unicorns.  The last is a Z Fold Card decorated as a Castle!  This card would be great as a centerpiece for a Kids Birthday Party.

I will be teaching a class making these 5 cards on Friday the 23rd at my Creative Playground in Methuen, Massachusetts.  Not in MA –  I am also assembling instructions and will have the PDF available for sale soon.

Fast Fuse Sale – Valentines Day Frame

Starting tomorrow February 8th there is a FLAsH sale on Stampin’ Up’s Fast Fuse.  But this special is only until Feb. 11th and while supplies last.  if you remember last fall, supplies ran out very quickly!

Wouldn’t it be great to receive this beautiful Valentines Day frame from someone special?  A perfect Valentines gift for that perfect someone!

This is a very quick and easy Valentines project to make. 

1.  Purchase a frame at any pharmacy or craft store. 
2.  Cut a piece of the Painted with Love Designer Series paper to the size of the frame opening for the background piece.  I usually use the background cardboard as a template for the size to cut.
3.  Stamp the desired sentiment from the Sure do Love You stamp set on Powder Pink Cardstock.  Cut out with the corresponding heart die.  Also cut a heart from a piece of Gold Foil.
4.  Select a corresponding piece of Designer paper from the Painted with Love DSP that you like layered with your background.  Cut 1″ smaller than the background piece on each side.
5.  Center onto background piece.
6.  Attach Stamped and Gold Heart with stamping dimensionals.
7.  Tie a bow with the Tinsel Trim and attach to the frame as desired.
8.  Insert picture into the frame.  NOTE:  Depending upon the depth of the frame and your hearts with the dimensionals, you may want to leave the glass off the frame.

That’s it!  A quick and easy Valentines gift that is sure to please your special someone!

Painted with Love Birthday Card

Painted with Love Birthday cardToday I am sharing another card made with the Painted with Love Designer paper from Stampin’ Up! that was designed by my very talented downline friend Margaret.

The difference is that this card is a Birthday Card and not a Valentines Card.  Another great way to use this paper.  It is not for just Valentines!

So here are the details on this card!

the Card base is a piece of Whisper White Cardstock cut to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″.  Next is a layer of Powder Pink cardstock (one of the in colors) cut to 5 1/4″ x 4″.  Next is a layer of Rich Razzleberry cardstock which is cut to 3 5/8″ x 4 7/8″. 

Next are 4 pieces of the Painted with Love Designer Paper cut to 1 3/4″ x 2 3/8″ layered onto the 3 5/8″ x 4 7/8″ piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock and layered onto the powder pink layer.  There is a strip of the gold vinyl painted love stickers along the bottom of the cardstock.

The centerpiece of this beautiful card is the birthday greeting.  The greeting is stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink on a piece of whisper white cardstock using the Picture Perfect stamp set. There is a round painted with Love vinyl sticker around the birthday sentiment.  This piece has been cut using a scalloped circle from the Layering circle framelits set.  This is layered onto a slightly larger circle cut from a piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock    And then this is layered onto a third larger circle cut from powder pink cardstock.  Around the edge of this focal point is wrapped a piece of the Pink tinsel trim that coordinates with the Painted with Love Designer paper.    

The centerpiece is then layered onto the front of the card.  Stamp and cut out a small heart from the Sure Do Love you stamp set.  Place on the side of the centerpiece.

Here are the products that were used for this card!
