Use Flowers at Unicorn

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

 This chart is from Ultimate Cross Stitch Flowers magazine.  It has soooo many french knots and beads and that border is all metallic thread - all my least favourite things!  But it looks very pretty and was worth it for my Mum's 70th.



It's really hard to be apart from everyone at the  moment, especially when there are milestone events that won't come round again.  I got to leave this on Mum's doorstep and wave at her through the window, not quite the celebration we wanted but if it keeps us all safe then that's what we have to do.

Clean and Simple at Unicorn

Good morning everyone, it's time for a new monthly challnge at Unicorn.  Our theme this time is Clean and Simple

 
I absolutely love CAS cards but struggle to design them myself so I had a look at Pinterest for some inspiration.

I used three snowflake dies and some silver card from my stash and stamped a sentiment in the corner.  I'm quite pleased with the result and it was quick to do.  I might try some more with different coloured card underneath.

Anything goes at Unicorn

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


I modified this chart slightly, the greeting was originally meant to say we're rather than you're but apart from that it is as charted.


I've sent this card to a friend of mine who recently got engaged.  She fosters cats for the Cats Protection League so it seemed appropriate!

Spooky and/or Cute at Unicorn

 

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


This is Skeleton Ollie Owl by KLT Charting.  It's not the best photo but all his bones are stitched in Kreinik sparkly thread.  The hand dyed fabric is also by KLT Charting.  The little bag embellishment was part of a set I found in the charity shop.  Again, the photo doesn't do it justice as the little sweets sticking out of the top aren't very clear. The paper and pearls are from my stash.

For A Child at Unicorn

 

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


I had this cute little bear kit as a freebie with a magazine but I didn't like the card that came with it so I made my own.  The papers are from my The Snowman pack and I think they go well with the colours in his scarf. The star and sentiment are from my stash.

Sketch Time at Unicorn

Good morning everyone, it's time for a new monthly challnge at Unicorn.  Our challenge this time is to design a card using a sketch.


This sketch was provided by DT member Geesje

I loved working with this sketch as I have dies in all the right shapes!




The flowers were coloured using promarkers, this has been cut out from a book of colour in postcards from the Royal Horticultural Society that I got for Christmas. The paper, flowers and washi tape were from my stash.

Food and Drink at Unicorn

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


I modified this chart, it was supposed to have four wine glasses and a different sentiment.. I changed out the font and charted my own words and fiddled about with the placemrnt of the grapes and vines.  I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.

This will be for Father's Day for my father-in-law as he likes a tipple!
