Double Rotated Stenciling

This is card of the new Alte New stencils called Wallpaper.  It is stenciled in worn lipstick Distress Oxide and Unicorn White Pigment ink for the second layer.  The diecuts are from S U heart set (2 vellum stacked hearts), a Marianne Creatables leaf set (cut from white glitter paper), and a Memory Box Botanical Stem die. The sentiment Stamp is from Gina K.

Below is the same stenciling technique inspired by Jennifer McGuire with the leaves Alte New stencil.

Aurora Wings--the Unicorn Sprite


 This playful little Unicorn was created by Mitzi-Sato-Wiuff and is called the Unicorn Sprite--available HERE.  I created the clouds and double rainbow sky in Photoshop.  I brought the Sprite onto it, and then I extracted just the white sprite herself (taking the background of area around the graphic leaving only the sky created in Photoshop).  
Then I colored the Sprite with Gel Glitter Pens, Prismacolor Pencils, White Poca Pen, and (skin) copics.  I added sticker holographic star borders, that I get from Pop Ups Etc,  and pearls and rhinestones.  I  created the stopper area  out of the large word "Believe" which is a Cheery Lynn word die.  That was cut and stacked four times in white and one time in black glitter paper.  This is an Easel Card; the message part of the inside reads  "Where there is Joy, Laughter and Magic, Unicorns Can be found"

Papers N Pixels Monthly Club Meeting

In our monthly Papers N Pixels Club meeting, Stampin Up Demonstrator Kathy Legan helped us create two great cards.  Using Stampin Up's cut Barn Door Stamp and Die Set we made sliders with various sentiments and decorations in them, experimented with the new 3D embossing folder with woodgrains--- and used the gorgeous foiled designer paper with one of the Balloon and word dies from SU to create a birthday card. 

Our Sun City paper (and pixel) crafters meet on the 3rd Thursday each month at the Sun  City Mesquite Craft Room.  Every meeting contains demonstrations and make-it-and-take-it workshops for the members.

I made these little secret pull up treats for my Red Hatters for their luncheon  Tuesday..  They turned out   SO CUTE.  Sentiment in Photoshop.

And these are  Safe_T_Pop Bunnies that were favors along with chocolate Easter Eggs too.
