Stamp Review Crew | Magical Day

Hello!  Today is a magical Stamp Review Crew hop featuring my international Stampin’ friends and the Magical Day stamp set.

This product suite, including the coordinating Magical Mates stamp set, Myths & Magics DSP, Myths & Magic DSP and Myths & Magic Washi Tape, are all retiring soon (31st May – or when stocks run out!).

It was so lovely to know we have this blog hop for inspiration to keep the magic alive!!!

Make sure you buy all your retiring favourites {like Magical Day} before they sell out.  Shop the retirement list in my online store.


 

The cards I made for today’s blog hop are based on the theory of design I talk about in my Stamp In Confidence module two video.  Stamp In Confidence is a tutorial program I have developed with my gorgeous friend Lou Kitzelman.  Visit the blog here for all the info.

Stamp Review Crew - Magical Day | kelly kent

As I’ve been putting together the content for this video, I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about design.  How I design cards, what ‘rules’ I use and what are the important elements of design when making cards.

Module Two brings all this together in a video tutorial with written information to support it.  If you’ve been feeling like you need a bit of guidance so that you can independently design cards with confidence – you’ll love Stamp In Confidence.

Here’s the close up of each of the cards – they were so fun to make!

Just Add Ink #392 | Something New Blog Hop

Hello!  Slowly but surely the year is getting underway and I’m starting to see February on the horizon – jeepers!!!

The Just Add Ink challenges are back for 2018 with a “Just Add Something New” blog hop from the Design Team.

Image may contain: text

At this time of the year, with a catalogue just launched in January, we all have lots of new to choose from.  There might also be something not new in age – but newly inked or cut.

Whichever it is, it’s always a good push to get creative with something you’ve bought but only admired!

I am showcasing two products that I was super excited to get but hadn’t yet made it to a project – the Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper from the Occasions Catalogue and the Beautiful Peacock stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration choices.

Just Add Ink #392 Beautiful Peacock | kelly kent

This card is actually relatively simple – but the oh-so-pretty flourish cut from the Petals & More Thinlits in the turquoise glimmer adds a special touch!

Just Add Ink #392 Beautiful Peacock | kelly kent

The colours for the peacock are Bermuda Bay & Island Indigo – which I’ve then carried through to the overall card colours. I do love a monochromatic card!!!

If I was only allowed one favourite from the Occasions Catalogue, it might very well be the Petal Passion suite – there’s just so many ways you can use it and so many things you can do with it!!!

To join in our ‘Something New’ challenge, head over to the Just Add Ink blog where you can upload your project.
