New at SU!: Cast a Spell With a Magic Card

We are back to inspire you to try fancy fold & fun interactive cards! The International New at SU! Design Team is going to ignite your imagination…try copying one of our creations, or use what you have to make something similar. You’ll have so much fun trying something new!

While a “Magic Card” isn’t a new idea, it felt like the new Best Witches stamp set was a perfect one to use:

If you’ve never made a Magic Card before, give it a go…it’s immensely fun to pull it out and watch the image magically become colored before your eyes! I’ve created a video tutorial, and you can pause it as you craft along with me:

I’ve listed all the supplies you’ll need at the bottom of the page. Go ahead and pin this post to remind you to try a magic card, then hop on over to the other ingenious card ideas from the other design team demonstrators:

Right Tools for Embossing; a Bewitching Card!

Crafters always want to know where to get an embossing tray like mine, and now you can! The Embossing Additions Tool Kit is available again (for a limited time?) in the July-December mini catalog, and I showcased it today under a little heat…um, I mean heat embossing.

Actually, the air conditioning converter at my house went out, so I was sweating and stamping at the same time! Not to worry, the repairman came after my video and fixed it. But not before I forgot to show you how to use the Reverse Tweezers in the kit. Oh well, the magic of editing helps.

And not only did we emboss, but I showed how to create a mask from the Dots & Spots die for the background! Keep the mask you create in the envelope with the die and I promise, you’ll find excuses to use it often with your blending brushes. The die is one of the products added to Sale-a-Bration in August and you can see the rest of the freebies-with-qualifying purchase HERE.

Just remember that there are two item numbers for the die: Item #159164 for PURCHASING the die, and item #163098 if you want to redeem it free with a $100 purchase during August 2022.

Watch the how-to video, then get shopping to get your Embossing Addition kit while it’s back in the catalog:
