For the Love of Sharing | Llamacorn

For the past many years I’ve mainly shared on my blog the projects I’ve made using only products available in the online store (at the time of posting).  This means that some of the cute & fun projects made for special people or special occasions that contained retired product didn’t make it here.

With my change of direction for 2019, I’ve decided to start adding more of a variety.  I’m still buying new – so there’ll be new ones, but I’ll also add in retired favourites.  I know many of you keep your Stampin’ Up! and have craft rooms filled with things no longer found in catalogues – but also that you still love and use these products.  Lets add some new inspiration!

Today’s share is a llamacorn (a totally trendy llama and unicorn mix) for a 9 year old birthday card.  I didn’t realise llamacorns were a thing – but they are and surprisingly fun to make!

To create your own llamacorn, I used a mix of retired Stampin’ Up! and the Magical Unicorn stamp & die set made by a company called Pink Fresh.

Head – Cloud die from the Rainbow Builder Dies (retired)

Face – Heart die from Sweet & Sassy Dies (retired)

Snout – 1″ circle punch, mini heart punch (retired), hand drawn mouth)

Neck – hand cut

Hair – Sliding Star Dies (retired) watercoloured on Shimmery White

Horn, flower, ears & eyes from Pink Fresh Bundle

DSP – Painted with Love (retired)

Frame – Rectangle Stitched Dies in Gold Foil

Sentiment – And Many More stamp set (retired) with Classic Label Punch

Cardstock base – Blushing Bride

Llamacorn cardstock – Whisper White

Punch art is a first love of mine, so you can imagine how much fun it was to put this together!

  1. So happy, Kelly, that you are going to show us some of you more “mature” (read that retired) projects. I have lots of retired SU and want to revisit some of my faves. Thanks!

  2. Kelly. thank you for encouraging the use of retired items. I love many of the things I have purchased in the past…they are SU but why waste a good thing. Hooray to you.

  3. Thank you so much for taking this new/old direction! I love using some of my old products and often see projects made with new that I then try to ‘translate’ using what I have here. I really enjoy that challenge. So thanks for acknowledging the real life of most of us and enhancing it.
