I'm back with a second post for today! I feel like I've been stamping up a storm lately! Whew! While it's fun, I do tend to need a break (yes, I just said that) after going on a crafting streak. I have several cards to share yet this week, but I probably won't be creating much of anything new in my craft room for a few days while I give my creative mojo a little time to breathe! DD loves to craft with me, but now that the weather is milder, we're going to head outdoors a bit more and enjoy the fresh air!
I wanted to play along with the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop
I went through my bucket of supplies that haven't been used and settled on the smile-evoking Moody Unicorns
set by Gerda Steiner Designs
. I paired it with the little coffee cup in the Hedgehog with Coffee
set. I thought I'd play along with the Gerda Steiner Designs 31st Share Your Designs Challenge
too while I was at it!
I recently acquired a set of Tombow Dual Brush Markers
and gave them a try on the unicorn and coffee cup! Very fun! To create the curvy, stitched main panel, I simply used a die from the A Muse Landscape Dies
! I went with a rainbow color scheme for the unicorn's tail and mane because, after all, they are magical creatures! I also added gold sparkle to the horn using a Wink of Stella Glitter Gold Brush Marker
, enhancing that magical feeling only unicorns provide!
The simple sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink
. The finished main panel was popped up using foam adhesive
to add a little dimension and then three mini gold star sequins
were added as embellishments. I think I'll send this card through the mail to someone. Who doesn't like a bright rainbow coming out of their mailbox?!
Have a marvelous Monday!
