Stampin Up

The Mystical Castle Shaped Card


Hello Lovelies,

Last but not least I am here to share the castle shaped card I made with the Magical Day Bundle by Stampin’ Up!® This is a 5.5 x 5.5″ card base and the pieces for the castle are made from Basic Grey & Smoky Slate papers. The Brick embossing folder by Stampin’ Up!® was also used before attaching the pieces to the card.

The stamps and dies came from the Magical Day Stamp set and I have colored them using the Stampin’ Blends® Alcohol Markers. Have you tried our Alcohol markers yet??? They are so fun to use. Here are some close up photos.

 

 

Look at these light to dark shadows. When working with Stampin’ Blends® you want to slowly build up your color. I was able to meet and speak to the artist who designed this stamp set when in Salt Lake City and I suggested he add to this collection because we need a prince and princess!!!

Finally for the windows I used the Home Sweet Home thinlits. They worked perfectly for the windows and door. The Myth Glimmer Pad was also used for the windows.

Isn’t the dragon AWESOME???? Love love love!!!!!! I hope you have enjoyed this weeks trio of projects as much as I enjoyed creating them. Happy Stampin’® Melanie

CAS Wednesday ~ Magical Mermaid!


Want to get a card complete super quick? Then check in with me each Wednesday (Hump day) for a quick and easy card that can be made in moments. We all have those days we are busy in yet we so want to be creative too. Mid week here at Melanie Stamps is the place to be. Make sure to add your email address in along the side bar so you will get a mid week reminder when the new posts are published!

This card was designed and shared with me by Michelle T. who is also a Stampin’ Up!® demonstrator. I love how she used the designer series paper to really bring this card alive. The glimmer paper is also part of this suite along with the glitter washi tape which I shared with you on Monday. Check out the tiny sea horse she stamped in the bottom right corner… So sweet! She even added a little Wink of Stella to the mermaids tail after coloring with her markers. Thank you for sharing this card with all of us Michelle.

 

On Friday I will be sharing a unique shaped card with all of you. See you then! Melanie

Fantasy Week Stampin’ Up!® Style


Recently I met up with a couple of online crafting friends in Mississippi (Hi Susan & Donna… miss you ladies already!!!) for a wonderful 3 day crop. My focus was mostly on Stampin’ Up!® projects and I will be sharing projects made from both the Magical Day and Sunshine and Rainbows Stamp & Die bundles. For someone who loves fantasy as well as all things colorful these were my first two sets purchased from the Spring Occasions Catalog.

With this first sample I used the awesome dies with the Sunshine & Rainbow dies to create these clouds and rainbow. I just love how simple yet unique this is. The sentiment was from the same bundle.

This second project incorporates both of the featured sets this week. Using the cloud dies I created a shaped card by trimming the upper left corner of a right opening card. Then I was able to use the rainbow dies and clouds to connect it all together. This adorable unicorn and glitter washi tape came from the Magical Day Suite of products. Don’t these set work together nicely?

Check in with me on CLS Wednesday when I share a Clean & Simple card made from the designer series paper that coordinates with these stamps. Until then keep on Stampin’®

Melanie
