It’s time to say a final farewell to the Magical Day stamp set and coordinating dies.
Sadly, the Magical Day stamp set and matching dies retire on the 31st May – I cannot stress enough that if you love this set and are contemplating buying it, you need to do it now! It will not be available for purchasing after May 31st – except if you want to pay ridiculously inflated prices for a second hand copy from eBay. If you are considering it – do it now, use the May host code and you will get a little thank you in the mail from me. While you are shopping make sure to have a close look at all the retiring products so you don’t miss out on something you really like.
Right – moving on to tonight’s card. I created this one as part of this week’s CASEing the Catty challenge which is focussing on favourite retiring products from either catalogue. I know that more often than not when a challenge is focussed on a ‘favourite’ project or suite I choose the Myths and Magic suite – but it is my favourite. And although it is retiring I will definitely not be giving it up anytime soon.
I have CASEd the rich razzleberry gift box shown on page 36 of the occasions catalogue (and also shown in the image above, sitting on one of the castle turrets), only I have created a card and not a box.
I didn’t use DSP for my background piece, instead I used a piece of card that I coloured using rubbing alcohol and re-inkers. Check out this post for details on creating the background. The colours used in this piece were actually Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo, but when mixed I ended up with some purplish tones as well.
I coloured the wizard using Bermuda Bay Stampin Blends and used some of the Glimmer Paper from the Myths and Magic Suite to finish it off and add some sparkle.
Although a simple card, the background (which actually takes about 10s in total to create) gives it a really special look.
If you want to see other projects I have created using this Myths and Magic Suite, just search for “myths and magic” in the search bar on the right hand side.. It really is an amazing suite – especially if you have kids yourself, nieces, nephews, grandkids etc etc….or just if you like unicorns and mermaids 🙂
