Rainbow Builder Framelits Meets the Magical Day Bundle

Yesterday was my sister’s birthday.  I had made an entirely different card for her, and then I remembered that she has a unicorn coffee mug that she LOVES.  So with about 45 minutes until I had to leave to go see her, I very quickly put this card together!  I didn’t have a lot of time to fuss with the design, so I just kept it simple!  But I like how it came out.  (And so did she!)

I used the Rainbow Builder Framelits Dies to make the rainbow in Brights cardstock colors.  I used Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Pacific Point, and Rich Razzleberry.  I also cut the clouds from the same set in Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, just to give the card a little sparkle!  The unicorn was stamped in Memento Ink, cut out with the coordinating die from the Magical Mates Framelits Dies (which are part of the Magical Day Bundle) and colored the mane, tail, and horn with Stampin’ Blends.  I finished off the unicorn by brushing a little Clear Wink of Stella on the colored areas!

I finished off the card by adding some silver metallic stars from the Metallics Enamel Shapes, and it was done!  Simple, but also bright, colorful, and fun!

Thanks for checking in today!

birthday gift tags made with the myths & magic suite (2nd set)

A couple of weeks ago, I made a set of three gift tags using the Magical Day bundle.  The tags were inspired by my boys, and featured the dragon, wizard, and knight.  Here’s a pic of what they looked like:

They were so fun to make, that I wanted to make another set using the rest of the stamps in the set!  This new set was inspired by my niece, who loves unicorns and all things pink and purple!  I made them to coordinate with the original set, and used many of the same products to make them.  I used the same paper, as well as Stampin’ Blends to color them (mostly).  I trimmed them with the Magical Mates Framelits, and arranged everything on the tags the same way, even using the same sentiment stamp.  I just switched up the colors and ribbon!  Here’s a close up of each of the tags:

As in the first set, I added Wink of Stella to each tag to give them each a little shimmer and shine!  (I’ll admit, I added a little more to this set to make them extra sparkly!)  This time, I added it to the dragon’s body, the mermaid’s body, and the unicorn’s mane, tail, and horn.  I love how the Wink of Stella gives them just enough shimmer to be pretty without the glitter being overwhelming!  And it doesn’t make a huge mess, which is an added bonus!  You just brush it on and it stays put!

  

The backgrounds of each tag were stamped with stars and bubbles from the Magical Day set in Versamark ink, and I embellished with some die cut stars cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  Each tag was topped using a different color of In Color 1/2 Inch Finely Woven Ribbon, and is also tied with a Silver Baker’s Twine bow.  I love how they came out!

Here’s all six tags together:

 

Don’t forget, the Magical Day bundle includes both the Magical Day stamp set, as well as the Magical Mates Framelits and is discounted 10% off the price of both items individually!

I hope you like these tags as much as I do!  Thanks for stopping by today!

How to make shamrocks for St. Patrick’s Day crafts

Who says hearts are only for Valentine’s Day and weddings?  Here’s a quick tip for making shamrocks for St. Patrick’s Day using HEARTS!  Cut three hearts and a small straight piece of cardstock for the stem, then put them together as shown above to make a shamrock!  Super easy!

Last night I was putting together a St. Patrick’s Day banner for a class I am doing this weekend.  I have a group of friends who all have fireplaces and love to decorate their mantels for all the different holidays thoughout the year.  So we have gotten together a few times over the past year to make a bunch of different banners.  So far, we’ve made Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day ones.  This weekend, we are doing St. Patrick’s Day and Easter!

For these shamrocks, I used the smallest heart die from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits.  I cut three hearts from the green Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper, as well as a smaller piece for the stem.  I used a die from the Bouquet Bunch Framelits for the stem, but it would be really easy to cut one freehand if you don’t have the dies!  I then arranged them as above and glued them down.  That’s it!  For these, I used the Multipurpose Glue, but I think from now on, I’ll use the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets! So easy, and with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits set, you can make shamrocks in a bunch of different sizes that range from small to large!  There are also two different styles of hearts in the set.  One is a more simple and straight style, and the other is more curvy.  You can use either, depending on your preference for how your want your final shamrock to look!  I used the straighter style for mine.

These dies are available in the online store and are used with the Big Shot!  This is a great item to have on hand for lots of different occasions’ crafts!

Thank you for visiting today!  Hope you have a great day!
