A big hello to you all my crafty friends!
I don’t know about you, but I am pretty excited about the new upcoming Occasions Catalogue and all the wonderful new products!
Did you know that a perk of being a demonstrator means we get to see all the new goodies first! and if you attend the Demonstrator Only On Stage event – you even get to play with some and take some home! WINNING!
Well I thought today that I would share just a little sneak peak of one of my absolutely new favourites that will be available at the beginning of January – The Magical Day Stamp Set.
I don’t normally share too much too early and ruin the excitement for you all … you know – it can be a bit of a wait and there are still so many lovely goodies in the Holiday catalogue to play with! But I couldn’t resist sharing this one!
I used one of Bronwyn Eastley’s tutorials to create this card – The Lots of Labels Bridge Fold Box Card. You can purchase any of Bronwyn’s Tutorials at her ADDinktive Design Shop right HERE. She has LOADS to choose from!
The Magical characters in this set are so much fun! I can’t wait to get my hands on the entire suite!
I used Bronwyn’s tutorial as a basis for the card and then added a draw bridge and used the ‘grass’ to create the ‘bridge piece’ for my card. I simply trimmed away the grass lengths under where the draw bridge sits.
It’s so easy to create brilliant looking characters too with our new Stampin Blends. I love that we can highlight and shade when colouring. I think it brings much more depth to the stamped images. And – our Fine Tip Glue Pen can still be used to ‘colour’ over the images. You can’t see it on the photos, but the Dragon’s belly, wing and fire are coloured with the Fine Tip Glue as is the shield and sword of the Knight to add a lovely glossy finish to the images.
I also embossed a piece of Smokey Slate Cardstock with our Brick Wall Embossing Folder, trimmed away portions to adhere to the card, and sponged them with some Smokey Slate Ink.
The card can even still be folded flat by lifting up the drawbridge and the folding as per instructions!
I love creating something just a little bit different and I was super happy with how this card turned out. I hope you like it to!
Happy Crafting Everyone!
