Masked Unicorn Card

Hello, crafty friends!

It's been such a long time since I got crafty and made a card, so today, I got my ink on and I have a unicorn card to show you! It features some bright marker colouring, plus some super easy masking!

Be sure to watch the video tutorial below, it shows how this card was made! There's also a supply list at the end of this post for all the products used.


I started by creating some sunny yellow stripes on the bottom of a cardbase, with washi tape, and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink. I love this colour, it really makes me think of summer!



On some marker friendly X-Press It Blending Card, I stamped and cut out a mask of a unicorn from the Sparkle Bright set, so that a rainbow image could be stamped behind it. A fun little sentiment made this card extra cute, and 'magical'. :P

I used some Shinhan Touch Twin brush markers (my favourite!) to make the colour scheme bright. Finally, I adhered the panel onto the cardbase and added some sparkle with star sequins.



Here's the supply list for today's card:

• Hello Sweetums stamp set, Sparkle Bright
• Hello Sweetums stamp set, Prehistoric Playmates
• My Sweet Petunia Mini MISTI
• Neenah Solar White cardstock, 80 lbs

Inlaid Die Cut Card

Hi, crafty friends! I'm back on the blog with a new card and YouTube video! Today, I'm sharing with you, how I made an inlaid die-cut card with smooshing Distress Inks! I've been a bit obsessed with rainbows, lately, can you tell? 😛

Be sure to watch the video tutorial below, it shows how this card was made! There's also a supply list at the end of this post for all the products used.



I stamped and watercoloured the paintbrush from our Crafty Companions set, and also die cut a stitched rectangle out of some plain white cardstock. I bought a new nested star die set, which I just had to use for this card, and I cut out some stars of varying sizes from watercolour paper, then smooshed them into some watered down Distress Inks.



Next, in the stitched rectangle panel, I cut out more stars of the same sizes, and placed the watercoloured ones into their places, like a puzzle. With the help of a Mini MISTI, I stamped on the sentiment, then with some foam, and lots of tape runner, I placed down the finished panel onto a plain Neenah Solar White cardbase.



Here's the supply list for this card:

• Hello Sweetums stamp set, Crafty Companions
• Hello Sweetums die set, Crafty Companions
• Canson watercolour cardstock
• Neenah Solar White cardstock, 80 lbs
• Versafine Onyx Black ink
• Distress Ink Mini, Wilted Violet
• Distress Ink Mini, Peacock Feathers
• Distress Ink Mini, Twisted Citron
• Distress Ink Mini, Picked Raspberry
• Distress Ink Mini, Spun Sugar
• Distress Ink Mini, Scattered Straw
• Distress Ink Mini, Squeezed Lemonade
• Distress Ink Mini, Tea Dye
• Distress Ink Mini, Shaded Lilac
• Stitched rectangle die set
• Darice die set, nested stars
• Sizzix Bigshot
• Sticky Thumb tape runner
• Waterbrush
• Heat tool
• Foam

And that's it for today's card, thanks for reading!

Distress Watercolour Rainbow Card

Hi, crafty friends!

I'm back with another card and video. It's been such a long time since I got crafty and posted a video on YouTube! Today I'm sharing with you a Distress watercolour rainbow card, and I'm using stamps and dies from our newly released Sparkle Bright set! You can get yours today at hellosweetums.com!

Be sure to watch the video tutorial below, it shows how this card was made! There's also a supply list at the end of this post for all the products used.



To start the card, I stamped a rainbow onto watercolour card, and used Distress inks and my waterbrush to colour in the bands. I left it to dry, and in the meantime ink blended a sky onto a Neenah cardbase, with Tumbled Glass. Once the rainbow was dry, I used the coordinating die and some washi tape to cut it out.



I then cut out some clouds from white cardstock and vellum, and adhered then down, alongside some thin white panels, over the sky I had created.


Then, I white heat embossed a 'have a beautiful day' sentiment, and cut out some fishtails on a banner. I mounted everything to the card using some foam squares and tape runner, and finished the card with some sequins, glitter pen, and some tiny blushy cheeks on the clouds.

Here's the list of supplies I used to create the card:

• Hello Sweetums stamp set, Sparkle Bright
• Hello Sweetums die set, Sparkle Bright
• Neenah Solar White cardbase
• Distress Ink, Tumbled Glass
• Distress Ink, Picked Raspberry
• Distress Ink, Wild Honey
• Distress Ink, Twisted Citron
• Vellum sheets, non heat resistant
• White cardstock
• Wow clear embossing pad
• Wow embossing powder, Opaque Bright White
• Heat tool
• Sticky Thumb tape runner
• Pretty Pink Posh sequins, Sparkling Clear
• Glossy Accents
• Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen, Clear
• Distress Marker, Picked Raspberry

And that's it for today's card, thank you so much for reading!
