Flora & Fauna | Whimsical Unicorn Cards

June 10, 2018

Hi blog friends! Today I've got some super cutie cards to share with you today using some new Flora & Fauna clear stamps. Have you seen their latest stamp release? It is super full of whimsy, and you will just LOVE every piece in it! My cards for today are unicorn themed, and I just think they are the cutest! I had so much FUN creating & stamping them!

For both cards I created black A2 card bases, then set aside. For this first card, I stamped the adorable unicorn face & sentiment from the Unicorn Car stamp set to the front of the card in onyx black Versafine ink. I hit it with my heat gun to make sure it was set, then proceeded to color the unicorn with my Zig Clean Color Real Markers. Then I painted the horn gold with my Gansai Tambi starry colors watercolor.

I let that set & dry, and then colored around the stamped image with the light blue Zig pen. I blended it out with water to create this soft, magical background. I added some shimmer to the stamped image with a Wink of Stella clear pen.

I mounted the stamped panel to a block of foam adhesive, and adhered it to one of the card bases. I covered the card edges, then splattered the front with both black & gold paint splatters.

The final step was to accent the front with my signature jewels here & there! It's really hard to photograph shimmer, but I tried to angle this one towards the sunlight a little bit in hopes you would be able to see it!

For my second card, I stamped the rainbow gradient using the long, skinny bar from the Strawberry Fields stamp set. I looked to my Catherine Pooler inks for this card, and used the following gradient of colors: Party Dress, Rockin Red, Orange Twist, Tiara, Lime Rickey, Aquatini, Flirty Fushia, & Sweet Sixteen. {They are all linked below!}

I stamped the sentiment from the Unicorn Car stamp set in onyx black Versafine ink directly below stamped gradient. I used my MISTI tool to make sure it was lined up, but you could easily do this with a clear block as well. I am now just a bit dependent on my stamping platform. ;) Then I mounted the entire block to foam adhesive, and adhered it to the other black card base. I painted over each color with my Wink of Stella clear pen.

Next I stamped & heat embossed the unicorn to white cardstock in gold embossing powder. I actually used a powder called Enchanted Gold by Ranger, but I couldn't find it in any stores. So, I linked a different one below that I felt looked closest to what I actually used. Then I fussy cut the unicorn, and mounted it to the top of the rainbow gradient with foam dots.

Finally, I accented it with my signature jewels here & there! I was able to get the sparkle from the Wink of Stella pen a little better in this image...I just love how subtle, yet how shimmery it is at the same time!

Those are my cutie unicorn cards! Aren't those stamp sets from Flora & Fauna the cutest?! They are SO fun, and whimsical. Be sure to check them out, and see how super adorable everything is that F&F creates!
