Welcome to 2017 Happy crafty New Year

I've been a bit busy with working for Hobbycraft over the last few months making samples and display items as well as working for them in store too.
But 2017 see's the started of new year with lots of great opportunities for Unicorn Crafts.
Firstly I have had an article published in the Making Cards Magazine this month using a Kanban Crafts kit and ribbons from Truly Inspired Crafts.

Then we have my work for Kanban CRAFTS as another huge kit is due for release worldwide next week. Which is under top secret control at the moment so I will share some snippets when I can.

We are really looking forward to a fantastic Crafty 2017 and look forward to seeing you all over the next year.
Big hugs

Throw back Thursday

Good morning, I feel like a throw back Thursday session today and here are a few of my older projects and cards I have made.

Here we have a gift set that I made for a new born baby back in 2014
Paper roses used to create a pram. The card is made using a Lili of the Valley rubber stamp and coloured with promarkers.

Next we have a cute porcelain watering can that I paper pieced to make it look more ornamental.

And finally some new home cards which I sell on my Etsy shop made using a Woodware Crafts Stamp and coloured using Promarkers.

I am off to work on some Kanban Design Team work now before I am back at the Hobbycraft Store in Coventry tomorrow.

Happy Voting day

Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog week of Anything Goes

Good morning. It's been a funny few weeks with no Glitter n Sparkle images to use and starting my new job.

Well I'm back this week with a gorgeous image by Aurora wings called Diamond and here is my finished card. I decided to keep this on very simple as the image it's self is so lovely.

I have used promarkers to colour this image and used a blender pen to take colour out and create shadow effects.

I do hope you can join us over at the Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog and join the theme and be in with a chance to win some amazing crafty goodies.

Ikes Art Sponsor over at Glitter N Sparkle's Week 190 Flower Power Theme

Good Morning and welcome to Week 190 over at the Glitter N Sparkle Challenge Blog

This weeks challenge is all about 
Flower Power

and my Sponsor for the week is Ikes Art

here is the card that I have created

I went for a slightly different card blank style this time and it's a dl shape that opens on the short side
I have used off cuts for this card which is a great way to be thrifty when crafting.

I stretched the floral digital image to give a longer look to the flowers.
I coloured them using Promarkers
Marsh Green - Buds
Cocoa - Branches
Pale pink & Aniseed for the petals

I wanted to keep it simple and added a floral ribbon from Meiflower Crafts and then stamped flowers down the right hand side.

If you would like to join in the fun then pop over to the Glitter N Sparkle Challenge Blog and have a go and maybe you will be lucky and get some great new digital images from our sponsors.

Glitter N Sparkle - Week 189 - Anything Goes week - The Stamping Boutique Sponsor

Wow, another week  is almost over and this weeks Glitter N Sparkle Challenge is one of our most popular themes and is 
Anything Goes week

One of this weeks sponsors is the fabulous The Stamping Boutique and I was very lucky to get to choose from their amazing selection of digi's
I chose:

I thought it was such a  fun image to work with and would work really well on a larger card size.
Here is what I came up with

I have coloured this image in using Promarkers:
Horse: Cinnamon & Burnt Sienna
Tail & Mane: Sandstone & Praline
Saddle & Bridal : Henna
Blanket: Grey Green
Skin : Blush, Saffron & Pastel Pink
Hair: Burnt Sienna
Jumps: Lipstick Red
Rider's t-shirt : Cardinal Red
Grass: Pear Green & Marsh Green

I made a large 8" x 8" card blank from a sheet of A3 card stock, next I used a Stampin Up Stamp set which included the apple and used memento ink to stamp the apple border on the card blank. I also stamped and extra 2 on a scrap piece of card to use as embellishments.
I have matted and layered the image with coordinating papers and card stock colours.
The final pieces were to add the apples and then the sentiment which is a Woodware Crafts Stamp set called Make a Wish.

I love these fun cartoon like digital images, if you would like to win some of these great images or soem from our other sponsors then pop over to Glitter N Sparkle Challenge Blog and add your entry using the linky.

Have a great Sunday
