Rainbow, Unicorn & Flowers

Hi there!  I'm popping in with two cards today.  First up is for the My Favourite Things sketch challenge and the Cupcake Inspirations Mythical challenge.  The stamps, patterned paper and wonky stitched die are all MFT.  I love this unicorn set.  They are a little chubby and super cuddly looking!  I coloured the unicorn and rainbow with Copics and popped them both up on foam tape for some dimension.  There's also a healthy dose of Wink of Stella on the unicorn and rainbow.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Rose Red, Bashful Blue) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  (Rainbow stripes from Sweet Celebration 6x6) My Favourite Things
Stamps:  (All from Magical Unicorns) My Favourite Things
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black, Memento Tuxedo Black) Tsukeniko
Die:  (Wonky Stitched Rectangle) My Favourite Things, (Flag) Paper Smooches
Markers:  (R85, RV000, YR00, Y11, YG11, BG10, BV00, C1, C5) Copic
Glitter:  (Clear Wink of Stella) Zig
Gems:  Recollections

Next up is a card for three challenges - Curtain Call's photo inspiration, the Addicted to Stamps and More Make Your Mark challenge and the Spring word prompt at Inkspirational.  Doesn't get must springier than flowers and Mother's Day I'd say!  I Zig coloured some Simon Says Stamp flowers and put them in a subtly striped vellum jar from Paper Smooches.  The sentiment is from Fresh Squeezed Stamps and you'll probably see a lot of it since it's one of the few Mother's Day sentiments I have.  Also there's that MFT scallop frame popping up again...  :)  

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Watercolor) Ranger, (Bashful Blue, Basic Grey) Stampin' Up, (Vellum)
Stamps:  (Flowers from Spring Flowers) Simon Says Stamp, (Sentiment from Mother Knows Best) Fresh Squeezed Stamps
Inks:  (VersaMark) Tsukeniko, (Cement Grey) My Favourite Things
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Die:  (Jar) Paper Smooches, (Stitched Rectangle Scallop Edge Frame) My Favourite Things
Markers:  (Zig Light Pink, Light Carmine, Light Green) Kuretake
Gems:  Recollections
