Include Pears/Bling at Unicorn

Good morning everyone, it's time for a new monthly challenge at Unicorn.  Our theme this time is Include Pearls/Bling

I've made this cute cat card for my son for Christmas.  It's by Durene Jones and I modified it slightly by using sparkly etoile threads for some of the green in the tree, the sentiment and the stars.

Include an Animal at Unicorn

Good morning everyone, it's time for a new monthly challenge at Unicorn.  Our theme this time is Include an Animal

I've made this cute little bear using a kit from a magazine.  He's really sweet and not too difficult to stitch apart from the backstitch, which was a bit fiddly.  He's going to be for my mother-in-law for her birthday.

Dots and/or Stripes at Unicorn

Good morning everyone, it's time for a new monthly challenge at Unicorn.  Our theme this time is Dots and/or Stripes

I thought that my washi tape collection would be perfect for this challenge.  I've got a selection of pink and blue shades in my stash but thought I'd use blue as it's my husband's birthday next month.



I'm really pleased with how this turned out.  It was a bit tricky gettng all the tape to line up square but I think it's worked out OK.

Let's See Red at Unicorn

Good morning everyone, it's time for a new monthly challenge at Unicorn.  Our theme this time is Let's See Red

I'm not a massive fan of Valentine's day so I've decided to ignore the obvious red theme for this time of year and get a head start on my Christmas cards instead!


I love a clean and simple card and this theme has given me the opportunity to play with my new circle cutter that I got for Christmas last year.  I used holographic card and ribbons from my stash to come up with a simple but elegant design.

Layer it Up at Unicorn

 

Good morning everyone, it's time for a new monthly challenge at Unicorn.  Our theme this time is Layer it Up


I've made another 3D aperture card using a kit that I picked up at he craft show at the NEC a couple of years ago.  This was quick and easy for me to do, it's hard to fit in card making at this time of year when it's so busy!

 

 

Happy New Year to you all, hopefully 2022 will be a much better one for all of us!

Christmas at Unicorn

Good morning everyone, it's time for a new monthly challnge at Unicorn.  Our theme this time is Christmas/Winter


I've made this 3D aperture card using a kit that I picked up at he craft show at the NEC a couple of years ago.  I think it's quite effective and the best bit is that I have lots of elements left over to add to other projects!


It hardly seems possible that we're getting ready for Christmas again, let's hope that we can celebrate properly this year.

Autumn and/or Halloween

 

Good morning everyone, it's time for a new monthly challnge at Unicorn.  Our theme this time is Autumn and/or Halloween


This design is called Haunted House by Jodyri.  One of my stitching group friends did this on some pink fabric and I loved it so had to stitch it myself.  I've used dark blue though as I thought it was more spooky!



I've used DMC glow in the dark thread for the ghosts but I couldn't get a decent photo so you'll just have to trust me!
