Hello from Designer Chris! Today’s card is using the new Unicorn Party digital stamp set, one of Sparkle N Sprinkle's new July stamp releases. I just loved this sweet little unicorn. I wanted to showcase all the images, and make it feel like a party. Let’s check out what I created using this awesome digi stamp set.

I started out by sizing all my images in a Word document and then I printed them with my color printer. I used the pre-colored digi images, which makes creating a card a breeze! I die cut out each image with my Tonic Tangerine machine and used the Tonic Scalloped Circle Layering Basics die set. I blended some ink onto the edges of the circles to help make the edges pop. I created my card base by die cutting a shape using the Tonic Swirling Frame Layering Die Set. I colored the cardstock with Copic markers to make it a solid blue. Then, I stamped the coffee cup stain and journaling stamps from the Journal Mixed Media stamp set using different Nuvo hybrid inks from the Sea Siren and Tropical Fruits collections (more on this below). Then, I laid the Stampendous Butterfly Field Metal Stencil on my background, and stenciled white embossing paste, Nuvo Blue Topaz Glimmer Paste, and Nuvo Raspberry Rhodolite Glimmer Paste through the stencil. I moved the stencil around so I didn't have a solid coverage anywhere, which was the look I was going for. I also squeezed on some Nuvo Simply White Crystal Drops to the edges and on some of the circles. You can see the full background and the images here.
I also added extra sparkle to the images. For the cupcake, I rolled on Nuvo Smooth Precision Glue Pen onto strategic parts of the cupcake and sprinkled on Caspia Sea, Butterscotch, and Pink Fizz glitters.
For the clouds, I rolled on more Nuvo Smooth Precision Glue Pen and sprinkled on Butterscotch glitter onto the yellow balloon, and Pink Fizz onto the pink balloon. I also sprinkled Caspia Sea onto the clouds.
I also blinged up the unicorn! I rolled on more Nuvo Smooth Precision Glue Pen and sprinkled on Caspia Sea and Pink Fizz onto the unicorn mane and tail. Check out this cute and sparkly unicorn!
Here is a closeup of the card panel. You can see the journaling stamp image and the "coffee cup stain" image from the Journal Mixed Media stamp. This stamp set was the perfect set to give some texture and color to my image without detracting from the unicorn.
