Ink it! Stamp it! Design Team Blog Hop | Theme: Favourite Retiring Bundle

Welcome to the Ink it! Stamp it! Design Team Blog Hop. This month we will be sharing projects created using our Favourite Retiring Bundle. The full line up below will guide you through all the projects.

I always find it hard to choose just one favourite of anything, so I have a few favourite bundles that are retiring soon. I decided to go with the Magical Day Bundle (Magical Day Stamp Set and Magical Mates Framelits) for my card today.

The layout for my card was inspired by this weeks Global Design Project #138 Sketch Challenge.


I also wanted to say goodbye to Marina Mist with my card, as sadly it will be retiring at the end of this month as well.

So, my card base uses Marina Mist cardstock and using Marina Mist ink, I stamped the cute bubbles and seahorse images from the Magical Day stamp set.

My sentiment comes from the Colorful Seasons stamp set and is stamped in Bermuda Bay onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.

The mermaid was stamped using Memento Black ink and cut out using the co-ordinating framelit. She has then been coloured using Stampin' Blends in Light Bermuda Bay, Light Daffodil Delight and Ivory. For a little extra sparkle, I have added some clear Wink of Stella over her body & tail.

Before adhering my Whisper White layer to my card base, I have added some of the Iridescent Myths & Magic Specialty Washi Tape and a tiny strip of the Bermuda Bay sparkly bubble designer paper (from the Myths & Magic Specialty DSP pack) that was left over from my last project. Waste not, I say.

To finish off the card, my coloured mermaid was adhered using some mini dimensionals.
