Have a Magical Birthday!

Hi everyone...DT Lee-Ann(from Snappy Scraps) here with my first official post on the Jaded Blossom blog...so excited!!! Check it out HERE!! For today's post...I decided to channel my inner Harry Potter...I love Harry Potter!!! I whipped up a card and matching treat...I made a (hopefully) magical looking background with Distress inks. I coloured Harry(from the Jaded Blossom My Favorite Wizard stamp set) with Spectrum Noir markers then masked him off to ink blend a background on the Scallop Slider topper die...I added water droplets and then added embossing paste stenciled stars over top...and then coated them in Glamour Dust for a sparkly look...I matted the piece using a Scallop square die that I cut and separated a bit to give the illusion that I covered the card base...and then covered the cut with a Border die piece...I added balls of magic with the Stitched circle dies...that I colored with Mustard seed distress ink...then I stenciled the stars on using Simon Says Sunshine ink...coated them in clear Wink of Stella. Liberal dabs of Glossy Accents here and there...and hopefully, BAM, a magical looking card.

 The treat was super easy...I used the Scallop Slider Topper die as my background...I then used the slider die to cut slots for my Jaded Blossom 1x8" clear treat bag to slip through...then I used a past freebie hop file from SVG Cutting Files-Love Harry (this freebie isn't available any more-you have to do the hops peeps) to embellish my treat along with a cute sentiment from the same Jaded Blossom My Favorite Wizard set on a tag from the set Mini Tags 2...LOVE how they turned out. Thanks for stopping by...Lee-Ann
