I'm so excited to share today's cards! I got to play with Kindred Stamps new "Magic Show" stamp set! My littlest sister, Addison absolutely LOVES watching Penn and Teller's Fool Us, and has taken to wanting to visit the magic shop at Pike Place Market when we spend time in Seattle. Audra and her wife, Dylan, got to see Addison's magic trick on one of our last visits.
After that, Audra put this amazing set together and that adorable little girl in the set? It's based on my Addie! Naturally, I needed to use Addison's tagline, "Wanna see a magic trick?" on the card using her likeness. I wanted to use Sweet Stamp Shop's Peekaboo Window Die, so I started with a black chalkboard cardstock and sprayed Tonic's Silver Smoke Mica Mist on it and let it dry. The die was super easy to use and I will be making a magic color slider with Addison using it at some point. Next, I colored up my girl, making sure she had lots of sparkles and bright colors.
I used a Stampin' Up Banner die cut and stamped the sentiment in Catherine Pooler ink, then went over it with Wink of Stella and kinda added a magical effect with the run ink.
Behind the magic curtain, aka Sunny Studio paper, I put the magic trick! I started with some Lawn Fawn paper that looked like a stage curtain to me. Then added "ta-da!" stamped in the same Catherine Pooler ink, and cut out using a Stampin Up Starburst Circle die.
For her magic trick, the little magician pulled a rabbit out of her hat! I colored all three images using Copic Markers.
The end result is a super cute card that can be used for almost any occasion!
My next card, I wanted to try to created a stage, pieces are a bit rough, but overall, I hope it's cute!
I recently decided to give Rinea Foil Paper a try after seeing my friend Annie's creations (that's her affiliate link). I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted to do with them, but after looking through the ones I ordered, I decided to keep it simple and used a black sheet with embossed stars for the background.
This little guy has the best cape and his wand shoots magic stars! I colored him, and the table and cards using Copics and used Wink of Stella for glitter accents!
My floor is kraft paper stamped using Stampin Up's Woodgrain background stamp. Behind my little guy, I used some sparkly sticker paper that I picked up at JoAnn's a while back. I HAD to use the curtain that is included in the Magic Show stamp set to finish off his stage. This guy did a card trick, but there are several options included in this set.
I finished off the card using Catherine Pooler inks and a Lawn Fawn sentiment die for the "Have a magical birthday" sentiment.
