Unicorn birthday card – Pink and Main

Hello Everyone,

I am on the Pink and Main blog today with a cute birthday card for unicorn lovers. Actually I designed this card for my daughter who just turned 8 yesterday. She loved it!

I am not a fussy cutter but i wanted to give another look to all the cute unicorns in the Sweet Carousel stamp set. Therefore i stamped and coloured them with Copic markers and cut them out with my scissors. I ran a black marker on the edges of each image to cover up any imperfection caused by my not that advanced fussy cutting skills. It makes magic, I tell you!

Then I cut a piece of the foiled dot patterned paper from the Watercolor Foil paper pad. I love this pad so much, the foiling makes it super special!

I die cut the Magical word die from rose gold specialty cardstock and the shadow of it from purple cardstock. I adhered them together and glued it on a thin strip of white cardstock. Around the die cut I heat embossed the rest of the sentiment from the Magical stamp set using rose gold embossing powder. I assembled the card and used liquid glue to add the sweet unicorns. As a finishing touch i added clear shimmer to the hair and some glossy accents here and there to emphasize some details.

I hope you like this clean and simple yet very special birthday card and I inspired you to look at your stamps with different eyes. Until next time, happy crafting!

Pink and Main Sneak Peek January – Sweet Carousel

Hello Everyone,

This is my second post today, and i am here with a magical and very special card featuring new goodies from the January Release at Pink and Main. All new products will be available on 20/01/2019.

I started with stamping the cute Unicorn image from the Sweet Carousel stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black ink and clear heat embossed it. I coloured it with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers and used the coordinating dies to cut it out. Did you know that Pink and Main makes their matching dies unattached? I love that I don’t have to separate them, no sharp edges, ready to use.

Then I die cut also the Magical word die several times from white cardstock and once from Rose gold metallic paper. I stacked them together. I also die cut a white stitched heart with a Double stitched heart die.

For the background I chose a metallic rose gold striped paper from the new and absolutely gorgeous Watercolor Foil paper pad. Oh my goodness, it is such a pretty pad! I cut it down to cover an A2 sized card and heat embossed the rest of the sentiment in white using the new Magical stamp set.

The last step was to assemble the card and embellish it with a few Glossy Rose Gold hearts.

I hope you liked today’s sneak peek, make sure to come back again soon for more fun reveals! Until next time, happy crafting!

MFT World Card Making Day Challenge

Hello Everyone,

This is my second post today as I managed t find some extra crafting time this afternoon. I really wanted to participate in the MFT World Cardmaking Day Challenge, where they gave us 3 tasks. I made the following 3 cards.

CARD 1 – ROYGBIV 

I created a stencilled sky background using Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide and the Cloud stencil from MFT. I die cut the rainbow die from pastel coloured cardstocks and adhered them to the background. I also die cut a stitched cloud from the same die set from satin pearl cardstock. Then the Hello die from silver glitter cardstock.

MFT_WCMD_zsm1IG

I stamped and coloured the cute unicorn from the BB Magical Unicorns set. I used Copics, a white gel pen and a black glaze pen to add some details.

MFT_WCMD_zsm01a

I also covered the hair with Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen for a subtle sparkle. After die cutting it, I popped it up on the cloud an adhered them to the card base using 3D foam squares.

MFT_WCMD_zsm01b

CARD 2 – Clean and Simple

I had a pretty pink and pearl alcohol ink background from a playing session which I wanted to use. I cut a 4.25×4.25 square from it and ran the Happy Birthday Block die over it.

MFT_WCMD_zsm02IG

I die cut the same die using white satin pearl cardstock and paper pieced them together on a black shimmer rectangle which I have adhered to a white note card.

MFT_WCMD_zsm02c

To finish it of I added a thin black strip with a white embossed sentiment on it (Essential sentiments stamp set).

MFT_WCMD_zsm02b

CARD 3 – Flower Power

I had another pretty alcohol ink background waiting to be used. I cut a rectangle from it and matted it with black cardstock before adhering it at an angle to a white card base. I used the Sketch Challenge #405 as a guide.

MFT_WCMD_zsm03IG

I die cut a flower (Stitched Bloom die set) from white, black and alcohol inked cardstock scraps. I layered them on top of each other slightly offset.

MFT_WCMD_zsm03c

I also die cut 2 stitched leaves from white cardstock and white heat embossed a sentiment on a thin strip of black cardstock.

MFT_WCMD_zsm03d

As a finishing touch I added some white-black enamel dots in the middle of the flower.

MFT_WCMD_zsm03b

I will link these up to the respective challenges, and the last on also to the Sketch Challenge #405

I hope you liked my cards and will pop in again soon.

See you,

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #451

Hello Everyone,

I am here today as a Guest Designer for the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #451, sponsored by Newton’s Nook Designs. The theme is Back to school.

CIC451.jpg

I cannot believe that in a month time my daughter will start the 2nd grade at school. I know it is not going to be easy at the beginning to get used to studying again, therefore I made a couple of lunch box notes already which I can sneak in next to her sandwich in her box. I wish it will brighten her day and remind her how awesome she is.

CIC451_01IG

I started with stamping an colouring my favourite unicorns from the Newton’s Nook Design Believe in Unicorns stamp set. I used Copic markers, Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen and a bit of stickles on the horns for an even brighter sparkling effect.

CIC451_02

I cut the images with the coordinating dies.

CIC451_03

I also die cut some white frames with the Frameworks Die set and adhered a piece of vellum to the back of them. I glued the unicorns in place and stamped my sentiments with Staz-on black ink on the vellum.

CIC451_04

For the background I used Lawn Fawn Really rainbow patterned papers (my favourite from the pack) and cut it to cover a 4 bar card (3 1/2 x 4 7/8 inches).

CIC451_05

As a finishing touch I added a few Crystal Stars from Studio Katia.

Birthday Unicorn – ft. Neat and Tangled

Unicorn_FB

Hello Everyone,

I am back with another unicorn card in my series. This time I am featuring Neat and Tangled Magical Day.

N&T_unicorn_01

I stamped, coloured and die cut the images first, added some extra shimmer with a clear shimmer pen and some glossy accents. Tiny detail with a white gel pen and a dot on the eye with a black glaze pen took this cute image to another level.

N&T_unicorn_02

Then I ran my card base through the Big Shot with the Lil’ Inkers Designs Stitched Swirls die for a subtle background texture.  I cut a piece of black and white striped patterned paper (MFT) and  a thin strip of pink to go on top.

N&T_unicorn_04

The sentiment I stamped in pink on a very thin strip of white cardstock and embellished it with some enamel dots in coordinating colours.

N&T_unicorn_05

I will link this project up on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Add texture .

I hope you like my card and will keep checking back for more unicorns.

See you,

Unicorn card set – Lawnfawnatics #26

Unicorn_FB

Hello Everyone,

To continue the Unicorn Card Series, I made a set of 4 cards inspired by the Lawnfawnatics Challenge #26.

Here is my card set:

LF_unicorn_cardset_01

I wanted to repurpose some packaging material from Pretty Pink Posh, I just love the subtle polka dot cardstock they use to back their stamps and dies. So I cut 4×4 inch squares from them and mounted them on square card bases.

LF_unicorn_cardset_03

LF_unicorn_cardset_02

LF_unicorn_cardset_04

LF_unicorn_cardset_05

I also die cut several stitched star frames (3 layers for each card, reusing some packaging material again for the bottom layers) and adhered them together for a thicker frame.

LF_unicorn_cardset_06

The inside of the frame I ran through the big shot machine with a Snowy Backdrop die to create the night sky. I sponged Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot Distress Oxide inks on them and backed the panel with silver glitter paper.

LF_unicorn_cardset_08

I stamped and coloured the unicorn costumed kid from the Costume Party stamp set using Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I added some Tonic Aqua Clear shimmer to the hair and horn and emphasized some details with glossy accents.

LF_unicorn_cardset_09

The sentiment is from the Critters Ever After stamp set, I white heat embossed it on matching coloured cardstock scraps. Then I die cut them with Sentiment Banners. When assembling the card I used 3D foam tape under the coloured image.

LF_unicorn_cardset_07

I will upload this project to the Lawnfawnatics Challenge #26 Card sets and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Add Some Texture.

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you soon. I still have some unicorn card I have not shared yet 😉

Hello Everyone,

Another card in my Unicorn Card Series, this time featuring Avery Elle.

AveryElle_unicorn_01

I started with the background by stencilling the colourful clouds. I used Distress Inks and MFT Cloud stencil.

Then I stamped, coloured and die cut the images from the Avery Elle Pegasus Duo stamp set. I used Copic markers. After die cutting I added some shimmer with a Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen and some shine with glossy accents.
