It’s time for the Stamp Review Crew: Magical Day Edition! If this is your very first visit to one of our hops, the Stamp Review Crew is a group of international Stampin’ Up! demonstrators whose mission is to do a blog hop on the first, third and fifth Mondays of each month. Our hops are unique because each of us features the same stamp set used in a variety of ways, giving you loads of inspiration for that set. The hops are archived at the Stamp Review Crew blog. You will be able to click through each hop at any time, going directly to the posts for that hop whenever you want. This week we are featuring the Magical Day stamp set. If you are following along in order, you have just arrived from Yapha Mason. She is such a sweetie, and I love her work. After visiting me, you will continue to the next stop, the incomparable Bronwyn Eastley. She has never made a card that I haven’t absolutely loved. Enjoy this week’s hop!
The Stamp Review Crew: Magical Day Edition
Magical Day is a whimsical set, complete with knights and dragons; mermaids and wizards; and my favorite…the unicorn! I used the coordinating papers to bring my sparkly creation to life. Sadly, Magical Day is retiring at the end of May. If you don’t already own this set, be sure to order yours today. As for me, this is one of those sets which will be residing on my shelf for a few more years. I hope you enjoy today’s card!
Colors of the Day
The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
Today’s design is a gatefold card. I began with a cardstock base measuring 8-1/2″ long by 5-1/2″ wide, scored at 2-1/8″ and 6-3/8″. The outer flaps were decorated with unicorn paper, while a Blushing Bride unicorn frolics among glimmer paper clouds on a water colored background. (Up & Away and Umbrella Weather Thinlits were used to create the various cloud shapes.)
The inside of the card is a sparkling confection of glimmer paper from the retiring Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper pack.
The sentiment is a hybrid created from both of the sentiments in the set. Instead of “Hope Your Day Is Magical” or “You Are One of a Kind”, we have “Hope Your Day Is One of a Kind”.
Branded with a single rhinestone, this unicorn shimmers, especially with her Clear Wink of Stella Mane, Tail and horn. Although the “Bubbly” background paper was undoubtedly meant for the Mermaid in this set, I liked how it complemented the large circle on both the front and inside of the card.
Speaking of mermaids, here is the Mermaid card which I CASED earlier from the catalog.
