Hi everyone! It's Carissa with you today. I'm so glad you've joined me. This month on the Pinkfresh Studio blog, we're celebrating Christmas In July.
I have created a couple of cards for you today featuring the Magical Christmas stamps. I've paired them with the Cityscape Die and Home For The Holidays set. You'll see some accents from other sets as well.
I knew when I saw this unicorn that it absolutely HAD to have a felt scarf. It adds texture and a pop of color...as well as an unexpected element for the recipient.
I'll show you how to create these cards in the video tutorial...be sure you check that out.
I used the amazing Pinkfresh Liquid Watercolors to color my first unicorn. Just because it's Christmas doesn't mean you can't have a rainbow unicorn!
I mixed and matched elements from the July release with some stars from the Brilliant stamp set. I thought this was a fun alternative to snowflakes. :)
The tree is colored with Copic markers and comes from the Merry and Bright Toy Shop stamp set.
For the second card, I colored my Unicorn using Copic markers. I stuck with a pink and red color scheme and chose my colors from a blending group to make my coloring easy peasy.
To create a magical background for my unicorn, I used the Constellation stamp set. I mixed two colors of ink directly on the stamp to create a multi colored background and heat embossed some stars over the top.
These cards came together rather quickly. And I absolutely love the idea of a Christmas unicorn!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you've enjoyed these cards. Until next time, I hope you have a fabulous day!
