The Magic Number

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Karen Robinson – The Magic Number

My youngest son started Prep this year and with that comes lots of birthday parties and presents and cards. The cards however were a small problem, I don’t own any kids stamps that I could use to easily whip up a card and I didn’t want to spend hours on something that might not even make it home from the party! I wanted something quick and easy that I could make a stack of to have on hand and I think I’ve found it 🙂


I’ve seen this style loads of times and I think it’s perfect for what I need. I like that I can change it up by using different colours (some girl versions are in the works) and I can highlight a different number if necessary, I know I won’t need higher than a seven.


The colour combinations I used were Real Red/Cherry Cobbler and Dapper Denim/Night of Navy. The splats are from Gorgeous Grunge (love this set) and the important number is in Silver Glimmer paper popped up on dimensionals. All the numbers were cut using the Large Number Framelits and I really like that they’re all individual framelits so I could use up scraps and still cut them all at once.


The inside is simply lined in white with a splatter of colour and a sentiment from Celebrate Today.

I hope you like this quick and easy card and that you’ll come back tomorrow for Big Shot Sunday. I’ve continued on with the same colours as last week (Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party and Sweet Sugarplum) but have a very different style of favour this time, they are so pretty, I was thrilled with how they turned out 🙂

I hope you’re enjoying the new catalogue, it is available to download here or if you’d like a hard copy, I have some options here. My only complaint about this catalogue is that my budget isn’t big enough for all my “must haves” let alone all the other lovelies on my wish list but I don’t think I’m alone there 😉
