Good morning, everyone! I am just head-over-heels (no pun intended haha) for this darling stamp set called Making Magic by Neat & Tangled! These kiddos are so cute and who could resist their huge smiles and their precious outfits?! I tend to color my stamped images as if they are my husband and me when they come in a boy/girl pair in a set and this is no exception--so if you ever notice that my characters tend to always have dark brown hair on the girl and sandy brown hair on the boy, now you know why! 😊
This card actually came together fairly quickly. I started with the adorable characters and went from there. I stamped everything with Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink and then colored them with my Copic Markers. I then brushed my trusty Wink of Stella brush tip marker in clear over her dress, the stars, his vest, her bows, her ribbon belt, and her shoes. I applied a layer of Glossy Accents on top of the hula hoop, her collar, shoes, and bows, the stars, his bow tie, his wand, and his shoes. These little details make clean and simple cards really pop.
The card base is Mermaid card stock by Lawn Fawn, and the "brick wall" panel is Peacock cardstock by Lawn Fawn. I love Lawn Fawn's card stock, but then again there is nothing I *don't* like when it comes to Lawn Fawn, as I'm sure many of you agree. 😉 I used the Small Brick Wall Stencil by MFT Stamps and the Peacock Ink Pad with my Mini Ink Blending Tool to create the pattern, then cut it out with one of my stitched rectangle dies--I think I'm incapable of making a card without using some kind of stitched rectangle die--haha. These and these are great options. I grounded my scene with a "stage" made with the MFT Stamps Black & White Stripes 6 x 6 Paper Pad. I popped up my little girl character with Scotch Foam Mounting Tape and stamped my sentiment with the same Lawn Fawn Peacock ink pad that I used to ink up the brick wall background.
Finishing up this post with a little detail shot so you can see the impact of the Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents. Thanks so much for joining me today and make sure you check out all the goodies that are arriving all the time in the store.
