I was visiting my dad this week and him and my step mom were talking a little bit about my SU business with me and I was talking about retirement. They asked why I don't keep using my retired sets much and I told them that I TRY to only use current items so I can promote those items and hopefully (lol) sell them. And then also, I want to inspire both customers and demos alike, to USE their current items. That being said, I keep a lot of items and stamp sets because you just never know when you may need them for a special card and this is one of those sets, I'll probably never part with!
The inspiration for this card came from some unicorn cupcakes over on Instagram! They were exactly Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather with some gold thrown in. I did the embossed splatter by using a little bit of a versa mark re-inker and an aquapainter. The key is to not use too much water. Splatter it on then add your powder and emboss.
I really mixed and matched stamp sets on this one. Don't forget to do that! We get stuck in using our sets as a whole but I used the Magical Day set with the Banners For You set and my sentiment is from World's Best Trophy. That's also a great retiring set to grab while you can! If you want the banners bundle at the discounted price, you gotta grab that today as well! Our bundle pricing isn't carried forward into other catalogs so while the items are available separately, you can't order the bundle and save your 10%.
Hard to see in the photo, but there's sparkly Wink Of Stella on my unicorn. And the glimmer paper really picks up the purple tones, so pretty! Speaking of retired products, I MAY have used the retired gold Wink of Stella to do my unicorn horn. I just couldn't resist :-)
Make sure to grab anything you want out of either of our catalogs TODAY! The new items will be available around 12 noon Mountain time, tomorrow!
