Sticker Kitten: Unicorn Fairground

June has been such a full on creative month! I’ve had so many wonderful design team packages arrive – including my very first design team package from Sticker Kitten! For today’s post I’m showcasing a set of three cards I created using bits from their Unicorn Fairground Collection Box. 

Here is the first card:

I wanted to combine both the stamp set and a few of the printed die-cuts from their Unicorn Fairground Die-Cut Ephemera pack. I don't often choose to work with ephemera because I love stamping so much but I was able to create three relatively simple cards under an hour - which for me is actually a world record!

Below are some step by step instructions on how I created this card. I’ve kept the instruction simple – because the same process can be applied to all three cards. The main tip I have is to take your time with the stamping of the chevrons – I used my M.I.S.T.I tool which helped immensely because I could align and repeat the stamping process without making any stamping mistakes.  

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Stamp the chevron background on white card. 
            (Measurements: 5 inches x 7 inches)
Step 2: Add machine stitched border and details to card front. (Optional) 
Step 3: Stamp sentiment on white card. Trim. Add machine stitched border (optional).
Step 4: Adhere sentiment (using foam tape) to card along with the ephemera.
Step 5: Embellish with sequins and twine. 
Step 6: Adhere card front to side folding card base.

Supplies List:

Sewing Machine
Altenew Ink

The next two cards are examples of how simple it is to create a set of cards. Here I simple changed the colour and orientation of the chevron stamping. I kept the same stitching details and embellished the card the same way as the first. 

The card below I added a chevron strip to the top and bottom. I used blue ink to stamp the chevrons which colour co-ordinated with the hot air balloons. I added machine stitched lines and embellished the card in the same way with sequins and twine. I also added stitched lines to the cloud ephemera. It's probably my favourite card out of the three.

It's difficult to tell in the photos but I also added glitter to parts of the ephemera.
Three fun cards in under an hour! I have quite a lot of ephemera left and I haven't even touched the paper packs included in this kit! So I'll be back sharing a few more cards soon...
