Occasions catalogue Sneak Peek - the Magical Day stamp set and Myths and Magic Suite



Yesterday was a big day... it was my husband's birthday and we went to Sydney to watch a Gold Class movie last night as a treat.  So we got home rather late and then slept in this morning..... much easier to do when the kids are away!  However as often happens I got up before my sleeping husband.... and that's always a great time to make a project in my craft room! 

I used that little bit of free time this morning to make this card.  I really am loving playing with the Magical Day stamp set... it features lots of cute magical creatures in line drawn images... perfect for colouring.  Today I chose to make this window card with the Mermaid image.... the mermaid is coloured in Rich Razzleberry and Pink Pirouette Stampin Blends, and her hair is coloured with Daffodil  Delight light and dark pens.  I used the Ivory skin tone for her skin.  And I have to say, if you are thinking of purchasing this stamp set you are ABSOLUTELY going to want to get it as a bundle!  The matching framelits make these a dream to cut out... and I know this because originally I had the stamps but not the framelits (I won the stamp set at the Stampin'Up Onstage training day).  After the first couple of cards I made with the unicorn were hand cut, I can tell you that I am now LOVING the framelits!!! (If you want to see a unicorn card I made click HERE )

The window was cut out with the Layering Circle Framelits, and I used a piece of our Fabulous Foil acetate to mimic a watery background in the window.  I also cut a couple of pieces of the new Myths and Magic speciality DSP to create some waves in front of the window.  And my favourite thing about this card?  The sparkly Washi Tape... also from the Myths and Magic suite!  I love this tape.... especially the silver stars!  Its so sparkly and glittery... whats not to love???  Here's a closeup so you can see the washi tape better:



So I have to say that this was a super fun card to make!  These gorgeous items are coming your way in the new Occasions Catalogue due out next week on the 3rd January.... so dont miss them! You'll find them on pages 36 and 37 and there is also matching glimmer paper too to round out the suite.  And dont forget that with every $90 you spend you will qualify for a free product from our fantastic Sale-A-Bration catalogue too!  

Enjoy the card, and I'll be back with more soon... including a couple of videos coming your way.  Stay tuned!
