Hello crafty friends, it’s Lisa here today with you on the blog! This months new release includes some great dies that will let your creativity run wild! These are nested dies in 4 different shapes that have scalloped edges with detailed stitching inside. There are rectangles, ovals, squares and circles. For my unicorn card I used the largest Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Die to make a top folding card. I folded my card stock in half and placed the die on top with the top edge of the die off the card and sent it through my die cut machine.
I love this technique because I don’t have to add an extra layer to my card but I still get the decorative edge to my top layer. The result is a top folded card with pretty edges and some detailed stitching.
The next step was to cut an oval scalloped circle out of white paper to build my unicorn on.
I used the Magical Unicorn stamp set by Pinkfresh Studio to decorate the oval. I started by prepping my paper with my Inkadinkado Embossing Magic Pad and then I stamped the unicorn horn with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Hero Arts gold embossing powder. I used the matching die to cut out the horn. Next I stamped the eyelashes directly on to the oval in Versamark ink again and I heat embossed it with black sparkle embossing powder. It is important to prep your paper with the embossing magic pad before using black embossing powder so that you don’t have any stray powder on the white paper. Once the powder is melted you can’t erase that stray powder. After stamping and embossing those pretty eyelashes I had to give my unicorn some pretty blush and eye shadow. For the blush I used Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink and a Spectrum Noir Sparkle Marker together. I smooshed some Worn Lipstick on to some acetate and then I mixed it with the Spectrum Noir Marker and used a dauber to sponge on some pretty pink cheeks. I repeated the same process with some Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink for the eye shadow and I applied it with a thin paint brush.
For some extra special sparkle I stamped the star stamp from the Magical Unicorn set in Gold Delicata ink next to the eyelashes.
After the makeup was done I worked on the headband. I used the matching dies from the Magical Unicorn set to cut out some pretty pink flowers and I used the Lawn Fawn Flamingo Together stamp set to add some pretty green foliage to the headband. To add some shine I die cut a gold glittered swirl border die and tucked it under the largest flower.
For a final shiny touch I added 3 Sparkling Clear Solid Confetti pieces to the middle flower.
I clear embossed the sentiment after I stamped it in Versamark ink to make it shine.
I popped up the oval on foam tape and applied it to a light green card base and the card was done. I just love all the sparkle and shine on this card.
