Leave a Little Sparkle

Leave a little Sparkle Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

What is it with little girls and unicorns?  I have a granddaughter who is turning 5 soon. She has been counting the days until her birthday for a very long time.  So I thought the Leave a Little Sparkle stamp set by Stampin' Up! would make a fun Unicorn Birthday Card for a 5-year-old girl.  The 2 unicorn stamps are beautifully illustrated and the sentiments are encouraging and happy.

Steps for Making An Unicorn Birthday Card

First, I heat embossed both the unicorn and sentiment (Leave a Little Sparkle wherever you go) in gold.  Then, I colored the unicorn with Highland Heather and Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blends.

Since turning 5 is a really big deal to Booke, I stamped little #5's across the background using my Make a Difference Stamp Set and Gorgeous Grape ink.

It's all about the sparkle and unicorns, so I brushed Wink of Stella across my unicorn and then matted my picture with Sparkle Glimmer Paper.

And for a little extra pizzaz, I dotted Snowflake Sequins across my card front.

Inside, I stamped another unicorn using Gorgeous Grape ink.

Then, I cut a Flirty Flamingo Happy Birthday message using my Well Written Dies.

All of today's card supplies are listed below.  Do you have little girls in your life who would love a Unicorn card from you?

 

 

Have a fabulous day!

Dino Days Birthday Card

Dino Days Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

I love the Dino Days stamp set and coordinating Dino dies for handmade Children's cards.  Today's card is a Birthday Card for my Grandson, Brennan who loves dinosaurs.

The Dinoroar Designer Paper was a welcome addition to complete today's birthday card.  The dinosaurs were actually cut from the designer paper!

I fashioned the unique card opening the same way that I did in the card in the video below.  It's fun to shake things up and do the unexpected when paper crafting.
