There’s a 5 year old in our house this week!!! The Littlest Miss Papercraft turned 5 yesterday – so it’s been birthday central at our house with cake, parties and presents.
Miss Papercraft’s 5th birthday extravaganza didn’t have a specific theme, but unofficially we ended up in the direction of unicorns & princesses.
The Just Add Ink colour challenge was perfect for me this week – a beautiful, soft colour palette that was an amazing unicorn combination!
Because it’s a unicorn, and unicorns are magical, I’ve added lots (and lots) of gold to make this combination extra special. You can add any neutrals (black, white, vanilla, kraft) or metallics to complement the Just Add Ink challenge colours.
The crown of flowers was made using the Petal Palette stamp set. I’ve stamped it twice in Versamark on Shimmery White cardstock, embossed in gold & cut it out using the framelit. The flowers are then coloured with an Aqua Painter in Daffodil Delight & Blushing Bride, and the leaves with Soft Sea Foam.
The unicorn touches (horn & eyes) are from a non-Stampin’ Up! set (Pinkfresh Studio – Magical Unicorn). I recently added them to my stash so I could mix them in with my Stampin’ Up! supplies and make gorgeous unicorn creations. As much as it would be amazing for Stampin’ Up! to have everything in their catalogue that each of their loyal stampers wanted, it’s just not possible!
The beautiful sparkle you see on the background of the card is the new & improved Gold Glimmer. It sheds less and has a smoother background, which makes it easier to die cut & stick to projects. There’s 4 colours – gold, silver, rose & sparkle.
The sentiment is from the Fairy Celebration stamp set. I love how it rolls across the bottom of the card!
The finishing touch is coloured pearls. The pink is from the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls and the gold is from the Metallic Pearls. I love having so many beautiful pearl options in the new catalogue. I use this style of embellishment most often to add a bit of ‘wow’ to my cards.
The other ‘wow’ is extra layers of cardstock on the inside of the card and stamping in the corners.
The stars from the Twinkle Twinkle stamp set were just perfect for the theme.
Look at all that sparkle!!!
