Have a Magical day!-Birthday card

Good day everyone! I have the cutest custom design Birthday card to share with you! The adorable little girl who recieved this card loves the color pink, unicorns, and sparkles; so that's what I made for her! I hope she liked it!

The background and the card base are on Neenah Classic Crest solor white cardstock. I cut out some hills with post it notes and used them for masks to blend some Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress inks for the sky and then some Stampin Up Green Galore ink for the hills and grass. I thought the Lawn Fawn Spring Showers die set would go well with the background so I cut the sun out of some yellow cardstock and the clouds from some white scraps. I inked the edges on them to add a little extra color, and added some Wink of Stella to the sun.

I used the "Be a Unicorn" stamp set from Avery Elle for the unicorn and the sentiment. Lawn Fawn's Jet Black ink and my Misti were used for the stamping. The unicorn was stamped on Strathmore watercolor paper and I used some old watercolor paints (that I am trying to use up so that I can get me some really nice ones) to paint a bright pink mane on that cute little unicorn. My paint brushes are from the Silver Brush company the black velvet line in sizes 2 and 6. I added some stickles to the horn for an added touch of sparkle.

The outside edge of the card base was distressed with Picked Raspberry distress ink to match the unicorn. I adhered the panel to the base with my ATG gun, popped up the Unicorn, sun and clouds with some foam adhesive, added a few sequins from Pretty Pink Posh for the final touches and there you have a super cute card for a super cute little girl!


Thank you for visiting me today, hope you have a wonderful day! Happy Crafting!

I'm over the MOON for you!

Hello, today I am sharing with you what I made for my son's 3rd grade class for Valentines. I know Valentines is over, but it's still February!!  I had so much fun making these cute tags and putting together these bags of goodies. 

I was so happy when my son said he wanted a space theme this year, I got to use the Space Explorer stamp set from My Favorite Things for the first time since I got it!

These little astronauts turned out so adorable. I colored them just the way he wanted me to. When I asked him what color he wanted his space suit to be he said Red, with blue accents. I used some crayola and other no name brand pencils for the coloring. I don't use my really good Prismacolor pencils for the little kids, they just throw things like this in the garbage. Most people wouldn't have shaded and done as much detail as I did, but I figured it was great practice! I want to improve in my coloring so I went all in on 25 of these little astronauts!  

I used the Falling Stars Stencil from Simon Says Stamp with a white pencil to add some light stars in the background for a simple galaxy. I added a moon on the bottom of the circle tag with some scrap gray paper that I had in my stash, using a gray pencil I lightly added some moon craters to give it more detail and hopefully make it look more like the moon. I stamped my sentiment on it with Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink

I used the coordinating dies of the stamp set to cut out my astronauts and adhered them with Tombow Mono Multi glue, I punched a small hole and tied it to the bag of goodies (milky way candy bars, 2 glow sticks, and a pencil with  a fun star eraser topper) with some red ribbon. 

I love how they turned out, and hope I get to play with this stamp set again, it has the cutest images in it! 

Thanks for visiting, have a great day and happy crafting!!
