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 this week!
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!
