We've all heard of unicorns, but today it's all about the fantasy mythical creatures invented by Whimsy Stamps called "Critter Corns!" This fun new stamp set introduces the creative world to it's first pandacorn, bunnycorn and zebracorn! I have created a slimline card with a rainbow cloud background to really give these whimsical critters a dreamy home.
*A full supply list is located at the end of this post.
The base of this slimline card is made from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I die cut the frame from white cardstock using the Slimline Waves die. I set this frame aside for now to create the rainbow background. On an 8 1/4" x 3 1/4" piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock, I ink blended the background in rainbow colors using Distress Oxide inks in the colors: Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Broken China and Wilted Violet. I still use the Tim Holtz ink blending tool to blend my inks. Then I spritzed the entire paper with water to create the "splotches." I also took a Uniball white gel pen and created a couple stars or crosses to create reflection in the sky.
I stamped the crittercorn images in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white cardstock. I colored the images with Copic markers and then used my Brother Scan and Cut 2 electronic cutting machine to cut them out (in lieu of fussy cutting). I adhered the images to the card using 3M foam adhesive. I added a couple white die cut clouds from the "Up in the Clouds" die set to the scene and stamped a sentiment in Memento Tuxedo black ink on each cloud. Lastly, I added a coat of Clear Wink of Stella to the critters for added sparkle.

As per my usual, I am late to creating this New Year's celebration card, but honestly this time it's not my fault! I never received this fun 2020 Uni stamp set from RG Avenue until last weekend. But, it is so darn adorable that I couldn't wait to create with it regardless if it's January 9th or not. Technically, it is still the New Year! But, this stamp set could also work for birthdays, if you just didn't use the little unicorns with the "2020" or "Happy New Year" banners.

This slimline card measures 8 1/2" x 3 1/2". The base is cut from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. Using the Slimline Windows die from Whimsy Stamps, I cut the frame from purple cardstock. I lined the back of the frame with a piece of purple lined paper from the Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow paper pack. Because this is a digital stamp, I printed the sheet image on Neenah White Solar Smooth cardstock and colored the images with Copic markers. I then ran the image sheet through my Scan and Cut 2 which cut the images out for me. I adhered the images to the card using foam adhesive for added dimension. Lastly, I added a coat of Dazzling Pat for added sparkle.

Hello readers and happy Friday! Today I'm actually "working" at the Scrapbook Expo in Marlborough, Massachusetts, teaching the make-n-take at the Stamp On It booth, so if you'll be at the show Friday or Saturday please stop by and say hi! You can also follow along on my Instastories and I'll share you with some behind the scenes footage and more of the weekend's rubberstamp and scrapbooking show.
I have been looking for what seems like years for a "perfect" unicorn stamp set and I finally found one that I am happy with. I can't believe I'm actually saying this but I've been very judgy about some of the unicorn stamps sets on the market! I hesitate to admit this, but seriously, some unicorns seemed too angular and squared off, other were kinda overly pudgy (don't hate me!) and a few were just too small for the look I was going for. I feel like Goldilocks looking for the perfect bed. . . This one is too soft, this one is too hard, but, the Unicorn Awesomeness stamp set from Concord & 9th was just right!
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I created a black frame using the Scalloped Stitched Rectangles Nesting dies from Gina Marie Designs out of Basic Black cardstock. I lined the back of this frame with a piece of an acetate sheet in order to create the shaker card. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink directly onto the card base. I sprinkled about a tablespoon of iridescent sequins directly onto the base of the card and then I lined the black frame with 3M foam adhesive to give the frame height and allow for movement of the sequins. Using the Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud borders I die cut clouds from Balmy Blue cardstock, Daffodil Delight cardstock and Flirty Flamingo cardstock. I adhered the cloud layers to the outside of the acetate film. I stamped the unicorn in Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored it with Spectrum Noir markers. I adhered the unicorn to the top of the card with 3M foam adhesive and lastly added a coat of Clear Wink of Stella to the unicorn for added sparkle.
Here is the Unicorn Awesomeness stamp set from Concord & 9th that I used to create today's card:
