Happy birthday unicorn

Hello and thank you for stopping by!
Today I have a birthday card for you that I mailed to a fellow demonstrater  which is celebrating her 29th birthday again today. 

 She loves unicorns and as i didn't have any unicorn stamps I decided to make my own somehow. 

)I then took the horse from the lunar animals from mama elephant. Colored it's hair in melon mambo and added some glitter with wink of stella and my sakura glitter gel pen. But a horse is not a unicorn so i cut a horn and glittered it too and attached it to the horse. Tadaaaaaa my selfmade unicorn!

But a unicorn is a magical creature and needs a magical world to live in. So i took some washitape and masked some sunbeams on whisperwhite paper. Then i blended all colors of the rainbow on the background as unicorns and rainbows are just meant for each other.  

Then i removed the tape and got this beautiful background.

For the clouds I made a template (in lack of cloud silhouette dies) using different size punched circles that I taped together and then traced the silhouette on a piece of whisper white.  I did this 2 times. Then I pierced the outline of my clouds and spobged it with soft sky ink to give it some dimension. I layered it on top of the sunburst background with dimentionals.

On the thick whisperwhite base card  i traced a rectangle with the golden glitter tape we had during the saleabration. On top of it came my finished sky background. 
The sentiment was cut from golden glitter paper using the hello you framelits and the birzhday stamped and cut out using the hello you stampset.

Everything attached and the card was ready to go to Austria.  I hope Judith liked it and you like it as well.  

Happy crafting!

Papier Turnier Blog Hop

Hello and Thank you for stopping by!!!
Today I´m taking part in my first ever Bloghop which is called Papier Turnier which means Paper Tournament :)  Judith from Austria organised this Bloghop that takes place every 2nd Thursday of the month.
 You´re probably arriving from .Janina Baltrusch or maybe you´re starting on my blog. Make sure to visit all of the blogs to get the full inspiration and ideas from all the very creative ladies taking part.

This month´s theme for the bloghop is   Flowers and Blossoms :)
As many of you know I love flowers  and so I loved this theme of course too :)
 With the new Stampin Up Annual catalog that launched on june 1st I had a few new sets and bundles I ordered from it that i used for my card.

The base of my card is made from thick whisper white cardstock. On top of that I layered a piece of the new Irresistibly  Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper that I colored with my sponge tools and ink in the colors of Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise, Dapper Denim and Rich Razzleberry. I was so happy when I saw that paper in the catalog as it´s similar to a SAB product we had in 2015.
I then cut a strip of vellum and heatembossed a sentiment of the the Over the Rainbow stampset from SU in black on it. The sentiment is about Rainbows and so it´s a connection  of the colors I used on the background. I then adhered it with gluedots and tear & tape to the card.

To finish off the flowers and blossoms theme I stamped , colored and diecut some flowers and a vine from the falling flowers stampset and May flowers framelits that you can buy in a bundle. I added 3 little rhinestones to the flowers and adhered them on the vellum :)
 And voila the card was done and it was a lot of fun to make it :) I hope you do like it and will give the products I used a try as well. Please leave a comment  and let me know what you think :)

Now have fun with the Blog Hop and have a look what the other lovely ladies created  :)
The next in the line after me is
