Guest Designer, Mindy!

I was honored to be a guest designer in December for Jaded Blossom and they sent me this adorable stamp set as a gift!! Absolutely awesome of them and this stamp set is just amazing! You'll see me using it multiple times this month! 

I love to color and this koala was too cute to pass up so..... I colored it a few times! I created my own background with it by randomly stamping it around my cardstock. And what did I add to the card...??? Yep! Sequins ! Can you tell I love sequins? I may or may not be addicted to sequins .... The pack I used for this card is Rainforest by Little Things from Lucy's Cards. 

I cut a piece of green cardstock for my sentiment using the Flag Die and trimmed off one end. I stamped my sentiment (also found on G'day Mate)  in Versamark Ink and heat embossed it in white. I also have white foam behind the flag die to pop it up. White foam cuts great on my Big Shot.

Leaves - YG13, YG17

I hope you enjoyed this card! Be sure to check back tomorrow as it's the start of release week and you DO NOT want to miss what's in store!!

Guest Designer, Mindy!

I  am beyond super excited to be guest designing for Jaded Blossom this month. A big huge THANK YOU to Candace and Michelle for giving me this privilege. To kick off this month for me I dove straight in to the adorable stamp set Unicorns and Glitter! I am a huge fan of fantasy and couldn't wait to color up this unicorn which was my all-time favorite animal growing up.

First, I started out cutting the cloud-looking border from border dies 2 from acetate. This is my template (that I can use again and again!) I then laid that down on white cardstock and used light brushing strokes with my Tim Holtz distress inks to give the light blue cloud look. I just kept moving that around my paper until I achieved my desired look. Next, I colored my unicorn and cut it out with my Brother Scan n Cut. I adhered some pop dots to the back of the unicorn for dimension.

Once I adhered all my layers and stamped my sentiment, I added my unicorn and what's a unicorn without some sparkles and stars?! So... I added some bling from Little Things from Lucy's Card Diamond Ring and Crystal pack. Just when I thought I was done.... I decided to spritz some Shimmer spray on the entire card. It's hard to tell in the pictures but its gorgeous in person when the light hits it!
