The Unicorn: Unlock the Mystery

What's not to LOVE about unicorns.  One of my favorite songs is "The Last Unicorn."  (click title to hear it!)  Kenny Loggins sings a version of it on his Return to Pooh Corner Album....I mean!  (Showing my age again!)  I actually wore out my CD in the barn; I would do ring work while listening to it.  My horse Thunder loved that CD and would be so calm when I played it!  Wow, after this long winter and no riding I better get a new copy of that.

Ok, enough unicorn, horse and Kenny Loggins talk.

This card was inspired by the color combo for the challenge at Color My Heart:  Juniper, Lagoon, Sweet Leaf, and Skylark Yellow.  I don't have the Skylark paper pack yet, so I am using Buttercup yellow.  I really do think that paper is beautiful, and it is on my list for my next order!  I'm seriously considering the Skylark Scrapbooking Workshop On The Go because I like the stamp set, as well as the other accessories, that come in it.  I know I've mentioned this before, but I seldom make what comes in the kits.  I just love the bargain of getting all the goodies in one pack and use them all for different projects.  One day I will order one of the packs and actually make what is there .........probably not!  Geesh, I can't stay on topic today, but that's par for the course!

I started with Daisy White CS and stamped my rows of stars on the diagonal.  I started with Juniper and followed down with Lagoon, Buttercup, Sweet Leaf, repeat.  The stars, sentiment, and unicorn are all from *Unicorn Dreams. The sentiment is stamped in Slate and the unicorn in Archival Black.

The piece of CS behind the sentiment is Slate and the card base is Whisper.  I embellished the outside with Color Ready Seam Binding (retired), Black gems (retired), and the magical key from Brocade Assortment (retired).

The inside is stamped with the Love Life stamp set except the sentiment which is from *Unicorn Dreams.

Ok, off to fix some chili for dinner tonight!  Hopefully, now that it's March, the cold snowy weather will start to subside and spring will make its way through the "snice" which is a term our weather team in Indy has been using.  "Snice" = snow + ice!

*Unicorn Dreams is a hostess set.  Remember, you can host on-line parties and qualify for those fun sets in the front of the Idea Book!  Visit KatiesCorner for more info on that!


  1. I love the way you did the stars in the background. Rainbows and sparkles and unicorns!

  2. I've been wanting to see something done with that stamp set - it looks awesome!

  3. Really like your use of the 'wavy' stars in different colors. Thanks for taking the Color Dare.

    1. Thanks, Sheila! I love how you can manipulate the stamps since they are so flexible! It creates even more possibilities and variations. Gotta love that!

  4. Love how you mixed and matched sets for this. Very fun. Thanks for sharing it with us over at Color My Heart.
