Unicorn Swim

Another sweet summertime stamp from All Dressed Up!


Here is another free image I received from All Dressed Up as part of the PPCF team. Such a fun summer image. I LOVE the whimsical designs from All Dressed Up!  Now on with the show and tell….


Who does not love a pink and blue Unicorn floatie with a silver horn? There is some wink of Stella on the tail and mane, and 3D crystal lacquer on the horn.


The stamp has no accompanying sentiment, so I grabbed this one from MFT Essential Sentiments. I stamped it in versamark and heat embossed with Mermaid powder from Simon Says Stamp.


I think the whimsical blue striped paper really makes the card.

Duck Swim!

Duck Swim!

Another super summer image from All Dressed Up.


I received this image free from All Dressed Up. This was for Passionate Paper Creations and Friends by Rhea, of which I was a design team member. However on July 25 this group of designers was disbanded. I am so sad this happened, but I will continue to post all the freebies I was graciously given. I AM also actually a Design Team member for All Dressed Up! Now on with the show and tell….


I wanted to use this fun pineapple paper for this card. I used the colors in the paper to help me choose the colors for my image.


Once again I used this well loved ocean/sky circle die set from Neat & Tangled. (Neat & Tangled is no longer open) I placed it on top of this small Kraft rectangle, just enough so the pineapple paper does not overwhelm my image.


I decided to not add a sentiment, so I could use the card for a variety of occasions.

Copic List:

  • Skin: E11, E21, E51
  • Duck Bill: YR09, YR07, YR04
  • Duck Floatie: Y08, Y06, Y02
  • Singlet: YG09, YG05, YG01
  • Cap: E43, E42, E41
  • Bucket: B06, B04, B02
  • Crab: R46, R27, R14
  • Hair: E99, YR24, YR23

Card Details:

  • Card Base of Accent Opaque White 120lb
  • Kraft layer cut with layering rectangle, adhered with tape runner
  • Pineapple Layer cut with layering rectangle, adhered with tape runner
  • Small Kraft rectangle cut with retired die, adhered with fun foam and 1/4 inch double side adhesive
  • Retired Neat &b Tangled Making Waves die used to create the circle with sky and ocean, adhered with tape runner
  • Image printed on Hammermill, colored with various Copic Markers, cut with Scan N Cut, adhered with foam squares
  • White gel pen used to add highlights on crab, bucket and floatie
  • Envelope embellished with matching paper and 6 inch double side adhesive
