(Not So) Moody Unicorns - Jeannie Lieu (InsideoutJeans)

May 17, 2017

Hello again! It's Jeannie from InsideoutJeans. I'm glad to be back on the GSD blog to share another card with you. I really love doing interactive cards but sometimes, simple is so pretty! This time, it's a really easy, fun, and colorful card using the adorable waving unicorn from Moody Unicorns.


Usually, a stamp set has a lot of smaller stamps that can be used to create a gorgeous background. I really had fun creating this one. The best part is that it's really easy to recreate. 

First, I used some vellum paper and stamped the cupcake and present randomly using Versamark ink. Afterwards, I used white embossing powder and heat set it. Now the fun part! You don't need many different ink colors or anything. I just used my Spectrum Noir markers I had on hand. I flipped over the vellum and colored the back of the stamp, outlining it a bit and coloring it solidly behind. When you flip it over again, you can see that the white heat embossed image looks amazing against the different colors. The array of colors work with the unicorn perfectly. 


I originally had just die cut out a rectangle box for the sentiment, leaving it white so the unicorn could stand out, but it just looked funny. I needed some color added to the sentiment, so I used distress inks matching the markers I used to create a soft, colorful border around the sentiment. What do you know? It matched the unicorn perfectly. 

Hope you enjoyed my card and will create something similar. I'd love to see them!
