The Magical Day Bundle is sure to be a hit with all the iconic fantasy realm creatures contained in it. This is the perfect stamp set to color the images with the Stampin' Blends. The Blends add a lot of dimension to the cute images. Isn't this a set that you need in your collection?
The Colorful Seasons Bundle is definitely one of my favorite things from the Annual Catalog. I decided to use the winter themed die to create an unusual combination of snowflakes using Washi tape.
Most people really don't know what to do with Washi tape other than to hold dies in place on your big shot. It really can be a versatile element in scrapbooking and card making. It is a simple way to add pattern and color. But did you know that you can stick it down to a piece of whisper white card stock in any pattern you like, and then place your die over it and cut it on the big shot?
Washi Tape is often overlooked in the catalog. It is actually a versatile element in the crafting arsenal. I used the Basics Pack 3 Washi Tape to create the whimsical banner behind the "50" element. I lined up the washi tape on a scrap of paper, trimmed it down and punched the ends in a banner with the Banner Triple punch. I also used it inside the card to add a punch of color. So simple!
