Unicorn Cake

Good Morning Dreamerz!!!

Todays post is not a Design Team post for once, LOL I actually have been quite busy in my craft room creating but just have not had the time or energy to blog non DT projects in a while.  I was browsing the My Besties web store and came across the most adorable digi stamps with Unicorns!! lets just say this made me one happy crafter, plus there was a coupon code for 60% off, so it was meant to be.. Todays card features Enchanted Unicorn Sweets  This image was just perfect for a friend who had her birthday yesterday and best part of all she owns the most amazing bakery that caters to many of our local weddings, birthday parties and civic events.


Card Recipe
I uploaded the digi into Craft Artist and added the rainbow background then printed it off onto watercolor paper. Die Cut using a pretty stitched scallop edge die and set about watercoloring the image.  I used Faber Castell watercolors then applied Gansai Tambi Starry watercolors to the white parts of the cake. White gel pen used to add some extra fun and detail.  Lastly card was attached to an A2 sized card base of Neenah 110lb card stock. Purple/Lilac glitter enamel dots finished this card off nicely.

Thanks for having a look today, I hope you all have a splendid week.

Victorine Originals ~ Challenge #13 ~ Halloween

Good Morning Dreamerz,

Today is the start of Challenge #13 on the Victorine Originals BlogThe Theme/Mood Board for this challenge is: "HALLOWEEN".  Here's my inspiration for you using:
Halloween Kids Set and Boarded Window

 closed

partially open 

fully open window

Card Recipe:
 I first created my card front using a piece of 110pd black cardstock cut to A2 card size and stamped the Boarded Window with versamark and used black embossing powder and to really make the image stand out I broke out my prismacolor pencils and added some paly grey and yellow to the wood boards.  Next I partial die cut the image from the center of the card to form a side opening window/door, then set this layer aside. I took a 110pd side folding piece of Neenah cardstock sized A2 and stamped the cute little ghost from the Halloween Kids set in a very pale grey and stamped the BOO! from the same set in a bright neon green ink.  I colored the lil ghost using various copic markers.  Once I was happy with how the image looked colored I took the black layer and glued it to the front of the card. I added some glow in the dark nuvo drops in green for eyes on the front of the Boarded up Window to make the eyes stand out and to help tie in the bold green of the BOO! on the ghost panel. The inside of the card has been left blank for now..

Victorine Originals ~ Thanks for your kindness...

Good Morning,

Today is my day to take over the Victorine Originals Blog. In keeping with the "Harvest" theme I chose to use Pumpkins On A Vine for my inspiration today.


Card Recipe:
Pumpkins were stamped onto a piece of patterned paper using a rust colored ink and then a green pencil was used to give a lil color to the vines and leaves. 3 strips of different colored washi tape were applied to a piece of kraft colored cardstock then I used a stitched edge rectangle die to cut down the layer for an A2 sized card base. I used a sentiment from Elegant Sayings that I embossed in gold embossing powder at the bottom

                                  Today is the start of Challenge #12 on the Victorine Originals BlogThe theme for this challenge is: "HARVEST".  Here's my inspiration for you using:
                                  Pumpkins on a Vine (2587)

                                   closed

                                  Card Recipe:
                                   I first created my easel card base using a Flop card die from My Favorite Things before die cutting I attached a piece of foiled paper from my stash cut down to A2 size to the front of the card. Pumpkins were stamped using various harvest-y colors from Hero Arts on cream colored cardstock from my stash, and then die cut using the square from the flop card die. I had a nice sentiment from my stash that I stamped with versamark and heat embossed with Antique Gold for the oval die cut layer that holds the easel in place when it is open.  Finally some die cut leaves in different patterned papers using Jaded Blossom Stamps Fall Dies were added to help tie in the theme.

                                  Good Morning Dreamerz,

                                  Today is my day to post on the Victorine Originals Blog. In keeping with the "Pearls and Lace" theme I chose to use Woman in Dress for my inspiration today.



                                  Card Recipe:
                                  Stenciled hearts in various pinks on Neenah 80lb card stock then die cut using Wonky Stitches die. Woman in Dress was stamped using Lawn Fawn jet black ink over the stenciled hearts. the sentiment is from my stash and was heat embossed using a pretty pink embossing powder and affixed to front of card. Tiny pearl embellishments added to anchor sentiment.
