Our family took part in the great “Are hotdogs a sandwich?” debate last weekend. I fall in the “not a sandwich” side. Let’s just say not everyone in our family agrees. What about you?
So now the question becomes, are unicorns critters? Mythical critters? To this, I say yes! For this card, I used the “A Little Sparkle” set that Lawn Fawn gave away with a purchase last year. I don’t think you can buy it, but I linked something similar below.
For the first card, I die cut four SSS Ring Frame Dies and did the old stacking routine with some Lawn Fawn glue. Then I used the negative from the die cut as a mask and ink blended with Spun Sugar and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink. After I glued down the die, I found the little “non-ring” parts to pop back in and cover the blending in the center so it looked like those areas had no ink. Sneaky right?
For the second card, I really wanted to color the unicorn somehow different than my usual white body/rainbow mane and tail combo for unicorns. So I went a kind of “my little pony” and chose pink and purple. I used one of the leftover circles from the ring die and stamped some rays behind him. I really need to use that set more often!
The sentiment was close but I want to be at the beach, not here in snowy Ohio!!
This week the SSS Wednesday Challenge was to make a card with a matching envelope. I tried my hand at making an envelope from some photo-realistic paper from my stash using the We R Memory Keepers envelope punch board. I started by creating a plain envelope to use as a template so that I could get the “horizon” lined up correctly.
Then it was time to hit the beach (section of stamps) and find something to go with it. Is it bad that I have an entire beach section of stamps? No? OK good.
I can’t even stand the cuteness of that pizza! This was mostly made with goodies from my Simon Says Stamp crafty parcel (best Christmas gift ever!). It’s a 4 bar size card so that fact that it’s little just makes it even cuter, right?
When I saw this weeks CAS(E) this Sketch, my first thought was “hey, that little circle could be a pizza!” So my little Italian restaurant vignette was born!
I will also be sharing this one at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where the theme was “something new” – the pizza stamp is new to me and I see this one being very, very loved!
