Magical Day by Stampin’ Up!

One of the best things about being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is attending Onstage and receiving FREE stamp sets. I won the Magical Day stamp set for my Prize Patrol during the event that was held in Salt Lake City November 9-11. This fun new set can be found in the 2018 Occasions Catalog that will be available to customers on January 3rd, 2018. If you don’t want to wait that long then keep reading to find out how you can get this set starting December 1st.

I made this card for a neighbor who completed her radiation treatment for breast cancer two weeks ago. All pink of course, but I didn’t want it to scream CANCER! I thought the unicorn and matching sentiment were perfect to lift the spirits of someone who has been through a huge ordeal, possibly losing a bit of her identity in the process. My hope is that “You are One of a Kind” is a reminder to my friend that she is special and not just another statistic.

This close up shows the sparkle I added with the Wink of Stella glitter brush after coloring the unicorn with our new Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers. I used the light and dark Pink Pirouette markers for the body and added Berry Burst accents to the mane with a Blender Pen and color from the top of the ink pad. One thing to note here is the light gray shadows I added to the outside of the unicorn image. I did this is because I am still in the learning curve with these markers and the color bled out of the lines a bit. The shadow covered the color that bled over and added some nice depth.

TIP: Add a light grey shadow around the image to add depth and hide any areas where the color bled over the outline of the design.

I made a second card for my neighbor to pass on to someone else, using a different pattern from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack. The Powder Pink and Berry Burst colors were perfect for my design and I was happy to revisit these pretty papers.

For the inside of the card I used the beautiful Ribbon of Courage stamp set. To get a perfect position of the sentiment on the ribbon I used my trusty Stamp-A-Ma-Jig. Easy Peasy!
