Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | Just for you
I’m feeling a bit under the weather today – curse you allergies, but that means today’s post will be short and sweet and that’s always a good thing 🙂 Today’s project uses the gorgeous Magical Day Bundle from the Occasions Catalogue and is a quick and easy card to make, perfect for a short & sweet post!
The inspiration for today’s card is from this weeks’ Freshly Made Sketches 328 challenge. I have to admit that diamond shape really threw me for a while, but really like what I eventually came up with.
To create the diamond element I lightly drew a diamond shape onto some Night of Navy cardstock in pencil and filled it in with the sparkle images from the Magical Day stamp set and heat embossed them in silver.
The wizard was stamped in Momento Black ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock and coloured with a combination of Stampin’ Blends Markers and Stampin’ Write Markers. I just couldn’t keep the blends inside the really narrow areas like the brim of his hat and parts of his beard and the super narrow tip on the Stampin’ Write Markers gave me that extra control I needed.
He was die cut with the coordinating Magical Mates Framelits and popped up on the card front with dimensionals. I added a little shadow underneath him using the Light Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Marker to help ground him on the front of the card.
I die cut “for you” in Silver Foil from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits as the sentiment on the front of my card. For some reason I forget to use the two sentiments in this thinlit set all the time, they’re smaller than some of the other die cut words we have and were the perfect fit for this project 🙂
I layered my card front onto Bermuda Bay and then Rich Razzleberry cardstock layers that coordinated with the colours in the wizards’ robes, before adding them to a Basic Black card base. I don’t usually have three layers on the front, but as my card was so plain, it seemed to need a little something extra and that extra pop of colour did the trick without taking away from the clean and simple style.
I hope you liked today’s quick and easy project, it was hard not to add some more sparkle, but I really wanted to keep it clean. I love the “for you” sentiment, I haven’t finished off the inside yet and this general sentiment means I can easily personalise it for just about any occasion – I love versatility like that.
I’ll see you tomorrow with the final project in this year’s Bunny Hop!
