Happier than a Unicorn with...

Hello friends,

It was a hot and humid day here in NY.  I'm a summer girl, it didn't bother me one bit!  I wanted to inject some of this summer into the cards I was making.  I made a card with this unicorn a little while ago.  He was holding coffee.  I went through my other stamps to see what other food items he could munch on.  Can you get more watermelon than summer?  I think I might make a Autumn version of this card.  I love the playfulness of this!

Materials:

Lawn Fawn Watermelon Set: Watermelon Dies (I didn't use but they exist): Altenew Alphabet set: Unicorn: Copic Storage Box:
Copics- colors listed at bottom of the page
Rainbow inks- Any dye ink pads would work. I used colors from Stampin up, Hero Arts, and Taylored Expressions.

Here is the video I made showing how I created this card.  Check out how I modified the unicorn to hold the watermelon. If you are reading this in email.  The video will not play.  You need to click here.

I Love You-Calyptus

Hey Mate!

I'm playing a little catch up today.  I made this card back in March, but it was lost in the shuffle. I just found it in my stamping box.  I made this at the peak of the wildfires in Australia.  It was just breaking our hearts to hear the stories of koalas burning in the wildfires.  I'm so glad the fires are under control.   This was my way of sending a big hug to all the koalas.

Materials:
Koala Stamps are from MFT (retired)
the background die is from Memory Box


Copic used:

Gray: W7, W5, W3, W1
nose: W9, W7
Pink: R30, R00
Wood: E30, E31, E33, E35, E37
Green: YG17, YG13, YG11
Blue was sponged on with Tumbled Glass
