Leave a Little Sparkle for our new InColors. I had such fun making this card, but I bet you would never think that I would have bought this new set. I was a little surprised myself when I decided to add it to my order, but there was something about it that was calling to me. In all honesty, looking at the set, there is NOTHING about it that I can put my finger on to explain this impulse, but sometimes these things are meant to be.
When I remembered that the Inspire.Create.Challenge this time features the new Stampin’ Up! InColors I immediately thought of the Leave a Little Sparkle stamp set. There is something about the InColors and the image of a Unicorn that seem to just ‘work’. I decided to use the head image and to frame this with Sparkle Glimmer Paper AND Purple Posy. Stitched Rectangles were the obvious answer for the Frame, giving a double stitch look.
As I chose to colour the Unicorn with Gray Granite Blends, this was the obvious choice for the Card Base and all the stamping. The Unicorn mane uses ALL the new InColor blends there are, other than one of the Rococo Rose ones, having used the wrong item number I didn’t have the full Combo! I added Clear Wink of Stella over the whole of the mane, because Unicorns need Wink of Stella! A couple of Rhinestones added the final sparkle I wanted.
I took the card to our Team event at the weekend. I think it is safe to say that everyone was surprised that I had used this set. But, guess what, I love it. It is such fun and is not too ‘cutesy’. This is a serious, adult unicorn stamp set, that could be used for children, but is perfect for an adult wanting to Leave a Little Sparkle.
