FUL-One Month-One Kit-Love!

Hello Uni & Paper friends! 

This months is my official first month to design for Flying Unicorn, the previous 2 months were my trial run. So I hope this one will be a stunner. 

What an exciting new month and kit we're having! Everything in one perfect kit. Beautiful Studio 75 Lavender Morning papers in Spring/Easter colors and some stunning new Prima flowers and embellishments.

For this layout I wanted to use some of the pictures from our Flying Unicorn camp. I met some super cool ladies there. Also a way to show that it is possible for me to actually use more then 1 picture.
I was so excited to see the new Christine Adolph-Adhesive Rub-ons with foils in the kit. Instead of putting it straight on the paper I decided to put it on some plastic which I could cut out in the shape I wanted and tuck in wherever I wanted it to be. It picks up the shimmer in a different way like this. 

I almost used the complete package of beige flowers for this layout. The centers in these flowers have beads the are just like little opals. Gorgeous. Together with the purples in the paper and the contrasting flowers a perfect combination.

As mentioned before I tucked the plastic hearts in between the flowers and added some other little touches from the kit, like the metal leaves. 

I spread some Say it in crystals - Tales of you & Me around the page and used the 13@rts Splatter water ink for some finishing touches. 

Thank you very much for looking!

Hi - Stop and smell the Flowers!

Hi Friends!

Thank you for checking in! I'm happy to show you the 2 cards I've made with Prima - French Riviera papers. Beautiful nautical papers. While at Art Venture in Anaheim Frank Garcia showed us the technique I used on the card below. Covering chipboard with paper and leaving spaces in between. It gives a nice lattice effect. The first layer of paper was a 6x4 journaling card. Then I used a smaller piece of paper before I put the lattice on top of that. I used the Wood Icons and one of the sticker in the back of the 12x12 colllection as a title. Time to add some flowers and raffia. The final touch was adding some shells and sand to give it that vacation spirit. Card one is done. 

For card 2 I basically layered mostly the same way but with the top layer I used the new Christine Adolph Adhesive Rub ons. For a special effect I used the 3 different colors of foil. Why not right. The card is really not that hard. Once the layers are done I got one of my resins I still had in my stash (and is not Prima, lol) put the anchor on top. Some flowers from previous Prima releases  matched up really nicely with the colors of this card.

These are a couple of close ups so the little details can been seen better.

The 3 different colors of foil gives it a nice touch.

Thank you for looking!

Hello friends!!

I'm having so much fun with the new Prima Marketing papers. This line Tales of You & Me is so romantic and beautiful. It's just gorgeous.
I started with cutting some strips from 3 6x6 pages I took from the collection and randomly started stacking them. Once I found the right order I stuck it down on the page. Next I mixed the Opal Magic Violet Gold Finnabair Acrylic Paint with 13@rts Magic mica powder to create a paste. Using the Tile Stencil I used the paste around the page. I repeated the same process with the Dark Velvet Paint and using the Woven Stencil. 

Now that the background was taken care of it was time to place the picture and start arranging the embellishments around it. The collection has such beautiful flowers to pick from. To give the leaves an extra touch I decorated them with some gold beads. I hope you enjoyed looking at the making of this page. Thank you for checking in!

OTP - Tales of Us

 Hello paper friends!

I decided to do something different for a change and decorate one of the little boxes we get our wooden embellishments in. I've had quite a few over the years and it's been fun to do something with it.

The Paper I'm using to decorate every little square with is from the 6x6 Vintage Emporium Collection pack. Once covered I colored some trim to match the papers and put it in 2 of the squares. 

I had some rope that I used too cover the sides of one of the squares. Filled one tiny glass bottle with a scroll and tied a piece of string around it with a Unicorn Metal Ornament on it. The other glass bottle I filled partially with glitter.  In the other square I stuck the love sticker you can find in the back of the collection pack. 

The wooden embellishments are from the Tales of You & Me line and go really well with the other collection. I chose the little postcard and covered the corner with a flower arrangement.
In the right top corner I put the G inside a Timeless Memories-Metal trinket.  

The top left corner has another flower arrangement, and to finish it of a Prima Metal embellishment.

What a transformation!

FUL-Today post- Happy - Enjoy the day!

Hello Paper-friends!
It's my time again for a today post on the Flying Unicorn blog and It's a fun one. I decided to make a pair of classic cards. Using some yummie new Prima papers, Creative Embellishment Chippies and gorgeous flowers. Let's get started.

I started with the Creative Embellishment - Door knockers and coated them with Ranger - Liquid Pearls - Dark Chocolate. This will give them a beautiful shiny look. I chose 2 different papers from the new Prima - Vintage Emporium 6x6 Collection pack.

Since the cards are the standards 4"x5-1/2" I had to cut the papers down to 5-1/4" for the height and cut them at 2-1/2" so I had 2 parts. 1 - 2-1/2" and 1 - 3-1/2". This gave we room to choose a way to tear the papers, as you can see below. As usual I ink the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Vintage Photo.

Under the edge of the tear I stuck lace I got from the FLying Unicorn store. I positioned my Embellishement by now it was dried and has a nice sheen. In my collection of Prima flowers I gathered leaves and flowers to complete the card. 

The end result is quite fetching.

For the second card I followed the same priciple. In the back of the 6x6 pak there is a sheet with stickers and I choose the titles of the cards. These cards will do nicely for multiple occasions. Not just birthdays and are masculine enough as well. 

Another full view.

I hope you enjoyed the making of these cards. Thank you for looking!

Have a wonderful day!
