It’s a Magical Day! Welcome back to another Remarkably Creative Blog tour. This time around we were asked to use our favorite bundle from the new 2018 Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog. There was no question in my mind, I wanted to use the Magical Day bundle. It’s totally adorable and fit for a Queen! It’s also fabulous to color with the new Stampin’ Blends Markers!
The card in a box is one of my favorites. My very first YouTube video ever was a card in a box card. I’ve also created a PDF tutorial to go along with another blog post.
The base is Basic Gray and then I used Smokey Slate. The Smokey Slate layer was cut and then put through the Big Shot with the brick wall embossing folder. For the top of the castle I used a 1″ x 3″ strip of Basic Gray and dry embossed them with the brick wall embossing folder and then held the two together back to back and cut the little merlons (raised stonework) myself with paper snips. I then attached one to the front and one to the back of the top of the card.
The characters (knights, dragon, wizard and mermaids) were stamped onto scraps of Whisper White CS with Memento Black ink and colored the with the Stampin’ Blends Markers. They more I play with those markers the more I love them! I then die cut them out with the Big Shot and the coordinating Magical Mates framelit dies. For the sentiment, I colored the stamp with the Elegant Eggplant and Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Write markers onto Whisper White CS. The framelit didn’t quite fit. So, I layed it over the image and traced around the outside with a pencil and cut it out with my paper snips.
Every castle needs a mote filled with water! The coordinating Myths and Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper (cut into 1-/2″ strips) was perfect to make waves of water around the base of the castle. I didn’t even realize there were little waves dies in the Magical Mates framelits. When I saw this scallop in the Seasonal Layers framelit dies I just thought it would make perfect “WAVES” and this was my chance to put my idea in motion.
I adhered the waves by using Fast Fuse adhesive around the bottom of the waves. After the waves were attached I inserted the mermaids and adhered them with mini glue dots. I made a custom 5-1/2″ x 6″ envelope to fit this card using the envelope punch board.
Who wouldn’t love to get a card that pops up into all these magical day characters? I hope it encourages you to make your wish list from the 2018 Stampin’ Up!

Blog Hop Line-up:
Hi Stampers. Today I’m hopping with the Global Stamping Friends. We are all kicking off Stampin’ Up! 2018 Sale-a-Bration! There are SO MANY wonderful new products in the 2018 Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog that I can’t stand it! Today I’m playing with two bundles. The Magical Day bundle and the Sunshine and Rainbows bundle. For added fun I’ve colored with the new Stampin’ Blends.
Since we are galloping through the clouds it was only right to start out with a Soft Sky card base. I then cut a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of whisper white and sponged Soft Sky ink all over it. The Rainbow Builder Framelits were used to die cut the rainbow using scraps of cardstock (CS). (Colors used were Flirty Flamingo, Peakaboo Peach, Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist, Bermuda Bay, Tempting Turquoise and Sweet Sugarplum.) The clouds were die cut from the same framlit set in Whisper White CS and the edges were sponged with Soft Sky ink.
Using the Sunshine and Rainbows stamp set, I stamped the sentiment in the upper right corner with Island Indigo ink and the sun onto a scrap of Whisper White paper using Daffodil Delight ink. The sub was then die cut using the Rainbow Builder framelits and attached it to the card with a stampin’ dimensional.
I stamped the unicorns from the Magical Day stamp set onto scraps of Whisper White with Momento Black ink and colored them with the Stampin’ Blends. They were then placed between the cloud layers and adhered with glue dots.
The interior of the card is lined with a 5 1/4″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White CS. Before adhering it to the interior of the card, I stamped the sentiment (from Sunshine and Rainbows) in Island Indigo ink. The Wizard and Dragon were stamped in Momento Black ink and colored with the Stampin’ Blends. I was just tickled in how this card came out and I hope you are too. If you wish to purchase any of the products used in the making of this card, I have provided links to my store below.
Sale-a-bration is in full swing and you are rewarded with exclusive limited edition product for FREE! Be sure to look over the Sale-a-bration brochure to see which items you will pick for free!

Hi Stampers. Welcome back for another blog hope with my Global Stamping Friends! Today we were asked to create something for a “festive celebration”. I wanted to share my Hershey Miniature Chocolate Bar snowman. I have been making these for years with the Stampin’ Up! envelope punch board. They are a hit at my craft fairs!
It starts with an 11″ x 2″ piece of Whisper White card stock, scored at 5 3/8″ and 5 5/8″. I used the envelope punch board to notch both sides 2″ from either end (this makes the neck). The mouth is the notch that was cut out of the hat with the Envelope Punch Board. The eyes are a basic rhinestone jewel colored with a black sharpie and the nose is a pearl accent that I colored with an orange sharpie. For the buttons I used a retired stamp I had handy (Stampin’ Up! Snow Place).
I adhered two Hershey Miniatures on the inside (with tear and tape so they stick well) and folded it together adhering the two ends together and wrapping the ribbon around the neck, I tied a knot and adhered the ends to the body with glue dots. for the hat, I used a 2″ x 2″ square of Basic Black card stock. I notched the top of the hat and rounded the top corners with the envelope punch board. The brim of the hat is a 2.5″ x .5″ strip of Basic Black card stock. I wrapped washi tape around the had and used my mini accents punch pack with a scrap of Cherry Cobbler card stock and a rhinestone to make the flower. The arms are made using the tree part of the Stampin’ Up! Tree Builder punch and Chocolate Chip card stock and are attached with glue dots.

Hi Stampers. Welcome to the Global Stampin’ Friends August Blog Hop. We are featuring Kids cards this time. Please use the list below to follow along with the hop.
For my card today, I have a really fun spinner card for you. Fidget spinners seem to be all the rage now days – so what could be better for a kids birthday card?
My card base is Pacific Point card stock 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″. Next I took a 5.25″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White card stock and used the retired word window punch to cut a slit in the layer for the fidget spinner to spin in. I used the Better Together stamp set and some primary color ink pads. Pacific Point, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Garden Green to stamp the birthday hats.
For the fidget spinner itself, I took an actual fidget spinner and traced it and cut it out of Pacific Point card stock. (Honestly, that worked, but I’m too picky, so I downloaded a clip art file and cut it out on my Silhouette Cameo for the final card.) I then punched out 3 1″ circles from Basic Black card stock and adhered them with liquid glue to the three points on the spinner. Next I cut out 3 3/4″ circles from Basic Black card stock and adhered those over the top of the 1″ circles with a stampin’ dimensional. Finally, I punched out a 1/2″ circle and adhered it to the middle with liquid glue.
What makes the card spin is pennies. I have one on either side of the top layer and they are attached in the middle with a stampin’ dimensional.
Next, I adhered the top layer, with the fidget spinner attached onto the card base using stampin’ dimensionals. This makes sure there is room for the penny on the bottom to move freely allowing the fidget spinner to spin.
The inside of the card has a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White card stock. I stamped the coordinating sentiment from the same stamp set (Better Together) on the interior of the card in Pacific Point ink. I stamped the hats (from the same set) in the upper left and lower right corner using Garden Green and Daffodil Delight ink. That layer is adhered to the card base with snail adhesive.
I hope my card inspires you to give you to give this spinner card idea a try! I have provided a list of all Stampin’ Up! products used with links to purchase them from my store below.

Hi Stampers. Welcome back to another international blog hop with Global Stamping Friends. Stampers from all over the world are sharing with us a holiday project in July BUT using a set that isn’t designed specifically for holidays in at least one of their projects. For my project I chose to use Stampin’ Up! Baby Bear stamp set with Real Red and Garden Green.
This card starts with a Real Red card base 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″. I then used Garden Green card stock to cut a piece 3.5″ x 3.5″ and another 3.5″ x 1″. Next I cut a Whisper White card stock 3.25″ x 3.25″ and 3.25″ x .75″. Onto the 3.25″ square WW piece, I stamped the three step baby bear in Crumb Cake ink. The first image of the bear is done lighter by stamping off onto scrap paper before stamping onto the card stock. The other two are full strength Crumb Cake ink. I stamped the two step bow in Real Red ink onto a scrap of Whisper White and fussy cut it out with my paper snips. The bow was adhered to the bear with glue dots. The sentiment was also stamped in Real Red ink. The layers were then adhered to the card with snail adhesive.
The inside of the card is lined with a 5.25″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White card stock and the sentiment and bow were stamped in Real Red ink.
This card could easily be done in other colors and be for a baby shower or congratulation or baby’s first birthday card. I hope this gives you a new way to look at your existing stamps and give them a slight twist for an occasion they may not have been designed for originally. Let’s get creative!

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for May 2017. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our 2017 Blog Hop monthly themes. This month we are featuring projects that are “stepped up” by using textures or fun techniques. We hMope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.
You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below. The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.
If you have followed me at all, you know that my version of “stepped up” usually means some sort of fancy fold. I just love this baby dresser made with the soon to retire “Something for Baby” stamp set by Stampin’ Up! I’ve done this card in the past with Pink Pirouette and Melon Mambo and also with Sky Blue and Marina Mist. Someone asked me today for a baby card that was gender neutral. So I made this card with Pear Pizzazz and Wild Wasabi.
I have a YouTube video and a PDF tutorial of how to make this card on a prior post. You can see that HERE.
On the back of the card I attached a 2.5″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White card stock so that you can write a note to the recipient of the card. It will fold up and fit into a standard A2 envelope.
Here is another version of the baby dresser card using Pink Pirouette and Flirty Flamingo. I encourage you to get out your Stamps, Paper and Ink and “step it up”!
Thanks for visiting. To continue with the hop, please refer to the Blog Hop Line-up below. We hope to see you on next month’s Pals Blog Hop!
