Magical day, Magical Mates, Promarkers, Letraset

I’m back! More swaps!

Sorry I’ve been missing the last few days as been super busy at work and too exhausted to craft when I got home. But tonight I grabbed some me time in the craft room!

The theme for this month’s ATCs at UK stampers forum is red white and blue… and I decided on some magical themed cards.

I grabbed the first bit of red patterned paper I could find and tore that and then some blue denim coloured fabric and frayed the edges. Then I chose the wizard from the Magical Day stamps and coloured him with promarkers.

After die cutting him I then added Wink of Stella to his hat and robe and then added the highlight with white gel pen.

I finished off the edge of the white cards with a promarker to tie in the colour.

Then I stamped in white ink the little magic dust and added a dot of glossy accents to each to give them dimension.

Love how they came out … very different ATCs from my usual ones.

Happy crafting!

Unicorn pop up box

During yesterday’s mammoth crafting session I wanted to make a fun pop up box card using both Magical Day and Sunshine and Rainbows stamp and die sets.

I started with a base of the Tranquil Tide cardstock and made the base using instructions I found online.

I stamped the unicorn a couple of times using grey archival ink. Then I added colour using SU inks and a water brush. Then coated them in wink of Stella and die cut them.

Rather than die cut lots of coloured cardstock for the rainbow I die cut them from white and used the same colours for the unicorn and watercoloured them.

I die cut the clouds from the white and the sun which I had stamped in Daffodil Delight. I also stamped the sentiment and diecut that separating the first and second part of the sentiment.

For the paper I added some from the latest Making Cards magazine as the rainbows matched so well. For the background I created a sky scene using the cloud border die from the Sunshine and Rainbows set as a stencil. I kept it soft using a stencil brush.

Then adhered it all together and added some sequins from the stash.

Love how cute these unicorns are! So sweet!

Happy crafting!
