Unicorn Dreams Add Sparkle to Your Day!

Hello!  This post is super late because I have a workshop this evening that I was prepping for last night--and then got inspired by the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches!  I put everything else on hold, and found my sparkle back in my craft cave.  :)


I always loved unicorns as a child...and their magic seems to reappear easily!



This was exactly what I needed today!  This stamp set I used is a Hostess EXCLUSIVE.  You can only get this one by hosting a gathering of your own OR joining my Rewards Club!   The sentiments are so FUN on this set!  Contact me if you would like to add this one to your stash, and I will help you earn it along with other awesome products.  :)


 I had great success using a rainbow of colors with this star studded stamp.  I curved it on my acrylic block to form the spray of stars--easy to do with the Close to My Heart My Acrylix stamps!  I inked it by carefully adding the colors from lightest to darkest in Blush, Buttercup, Sweet Leaf, Crystal Blue, and Gypsy.  The unicorn is stamped in Whisper and has a strip of shimmer trim that I carefully placed over his horn.

I added some anonymous sequins from my stash as well as a few from Lawn Fawn and Studio Calico.


I am not only pleased with how this turned out, but also extremely glad to have found some sparkle again...I will be spreading some today!  Thanks so much for taking the time to stop in! I am off to finish prepping for tonight, lol!  ;)

  7. Congratulations on being named the Queen! I love the rainbow sparkles. I think sequins are giving shimmer trim a run for the money as your signature element.
