Myths & Magic Castle Video Tutorial

 

Please enjoy the fun Myths & Magic Castle Video Tutorial today!

I saw this fun idea created by Barbara Smith, Stampin' Up! demonstrator in Australia, and asked her if I could make a video and share my version of her project with you! 

 

How to make a castle with the Myths & Magic designer paper from Stampin' UP!  Use the brick wall embossing folder and cut out the Knight, dragons and princess with your paper snips!

 

 These darling castles feature the Stampin' Up! Myths & Magic designer paper (I cut out the dragons, knights and mermaid princesses), the Brick Wall embossing folder, some sponging and a fun idea for the castle door. You can also stamp, color and die cut images from the Magical Day bundle!  Watch the video below for all the details.

Enjoy the VIDEO TUTORIAL below to see how fun and easy it is to make these cute castles!

How to make a castle with the Myths & Magic designer paper from Stampin' UP!  Use the brick wall embossing folder and cut out the Knight, dragons and princess with your paper snips!

 

Did you love the tip in my video about using the Classic Label punch to make the notches at the top of the castle!?  I thought it was so clever and easy if I do say so myself :)

How to make a castle with the Myths & Magic designer paper from Stampin' UP!  Use the brick wall embossing folder and cut out the Knight, dragons and princess with your paper snips!

 

Don't forget to sponge the brick wall and add the fun hinges from the Sliding Door (barn door) framelit dies for just those little extra touches that make this project super special.

 

Tip: use the "hardware" from the sliding barn door thinlits on your castle featuring the Myths & Magic designer paper from Stampin' UP!  Use the brick wall embossing folder and cut out the Knight, dragons and princess with your paper snips!

 

Did you catch this tip in the video?  Color around the images in the Myths & Magic designer paper before cutting them out, then they will blend into the castle a little better than the white border. I used my Light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends marker.

Tip! color around the printed images on the Myths & Magic designer paper with your Light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends marker before cutting out with paper snips.  Eliminates the stark white outline.

Petal Pair Embossing Folder / Narrow Note Cards video

Believe it or not, these Petal Pair embossing folder Narrow Note cards were inspired by a tissue box... yep, seriously!  These cards were inspired by a Puffs tissue box, and you can watch the story in my video below in this post! :)

  • Additional crafting idea for your Petal Pair Embossing folder HERE

 

Handmade card idea featuring the Stampin' Up! Petal Pair embossing folder and Narrow Note Cards with Just Add Color designer paper by Patty Bennett

I embossed each Narrow Note Card about 2/3 of the way with the Petal Pair embossing folder, then added different flowers to each one!

ABOVE:  I colored flowers and the butterfly with Stampin' Blends markers and the Just  Add Color designer paper and added them to the notecard.  The Pear Pizzazz leaves are punched from the Fox Builder Punch.

 

BELOW: I added flowers from the Petal Passion stamp set (pg 23, Occasions catalog) with Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends and cut the finished stamp image apart to add to the card below.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

BELOW: I stamped the flowers with Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist In Color Markers, and the Perennial Birthday stamp set and added them to the embossed card.

Handmade card idea featuring the Stampin' Up! Petal Pair embossing folder and Narrow Note Card with Perennial Birthday stamp set by Patty Bennett

ABOVE: the Life is Beautiful sentiment is from the A Mother's Flair stamp set (pg 46 Occasions catalog), stamped on a "tag" die cut from the Bottles & Bubbles framelit die set (pg 32 Occasions catalog).

I am excited to share a fun card and video tutorial with you today.  I created these cards using the Waterfront stamp set, new to Stampin' Up! this month!

I was inspired by a similar design by Amy K on Instagram.. she does beautiful work!  Each card is created with a watercolor paper die cut circle and a Stampin' Up! thick Whisper White Note card.

View this amazing Waterfront stamp set on page 48 of the 2018 Occasions catalog or HERE in my online store.

 I just love the "wooden" adirondak chair on these cards.  I die cut it with the Wood Textures paper stack and the Seasonal Layers thinlit dies.  See THIS POST for more info and another card idea!

 

Watercolor tips for the Watefront stamp set - create a beach scene with Aqua Painters! Card by Patty Bennett

Top card: I love the blue glimmer paper from the Myths & Magic suite collection on page 37 in the 2018 Occasions catalog.. I think it lends a special touch to this card!  The ribbon on the glimmer paper card is the Lemon Lime Twist Ombre ribbon.

Bottom card:  the strip of designer paper on this note card is from the Eastern Palace specialty dsp pack and I added some Bermuda Bay ribbon from the Sale-a-Bration Shimmery ribbon pack.

Die cutting tip with Washi Tape for Petal Palette flowers and bird stamped images watercolored with watercolor  pencils and Aqua Painters by Patty Bennett

  Watercoloring tips for the Petal Palette stamp set and Stampin' Up! watercolor pencils with Patty Bennett

ABOVE LEFT:  I created this card with the flower image and greeting from the Petal Palette stamp set.  I die cut the finished colored flower with the matching Petals & More thinlit dies (available in a 10% money saving bundle!), then added it to a Whisper White thick notecard.  I used the Petal Passion Designer paper on the note card and added some new Whisper White 1/4" Organza ribbon.  You'll find all of these fun supplies on page 23 of the NEW 2018 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog!

 

ABOVE RIGHT:  I created this "Berry Burst" card with the Petal Passion Memories & More card flower image that I colored with watercolor pencils and cut out with Paper Snips.  I added it to a Whisper White thick notecard.  I used the Petal Passion Designer paper on the note card and added some new Berry Burst 3/8" metallic-edge ribbon.  You'll find all of these fun supplies on pages 13 and 23 of the NEW 2018 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog!

 

Thank you for joining me today! I hope you will enjoy watercoloring and creating your own handmade cards!

Once you start playing with the Christmas Quilt stamp set and Quilt Builder framelit dies in the Christmas Quilt bundle it becomes really fun and it's amazing what you can create with this bundle and the Quilted Christmas 6x6 paper stack! (see the bottom of this post for links to these supplies!)

 

How to stamp the Stampin' UP! Quilted Christmas suite - Christmas Quilt paper squares by Patty Bennett

 

I stamped the stitched outline first in Basic Gray ink, then filled in the "pieces" with Real Red, Pool Party and Lemon Lime Twist ink, on Whisper White cardstock (above).

I die cut them with the outline die in the Quilt Builder framelit (below).

 

  Stampin' UP! Quilted Christmas suite - Christmas Quilt paper squares by Patty Bennett

 

I embossed the 2-3/4" Whisper White square with the Quilt Top embossing folder, layered the die cut quilt pieces on top of it, and then layered them all onto Real Red or Lemon Lime Twist scalloped squares (from the Layering Squares framelits) and then onto 3-1/4" cardstock squares.  I added White Perfect accents to the center of some of the squares.

 

Please enjoy my VIDEO BELOW featuring these quilt squares as well as some card ideas!
