Cuteness Alert!


I hope you have been enjoying your weekend :)  Here in Spain we have had 4 days of rain which has been a good opportunity to keep know that you have an addiction when you are secretly quite happy to see a cloudy sky!  I have been playing with a few new to me sets that I bought out before I came on holiday.  They were too cute to leave at home.

First up is this beautiful little unicorn from Clearly Besotted:

I simply inked round one of my circle aperture stencils and inked up the shooting star stencil in a range of distress inks so that the little unicorn looks as if she is running across a starry sky.  The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted too.  I shall link this up at Seize the Birthday where Anything Goes and at AAA Cards where the theme is to use a stencil.

On a more rustic note, I wanted to share this cute little fox from Mama Makes.  I simply watercoloured and masked him and stamped the free leaf images from the current edition of Creative Stamping magazine behind him.  I added a few additional splatters to enhance the watercolour look and inked around the edge.  I shall link up at Simon Says Monday Challenge where we are using sprinkles and splatters on our cards :)

I hope you like these cute characters!

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. Both of your cards are adorable, Sarah! I am like you, happy to see a cloudy or rainy day for crafting. I really like your cute fox and the splatters add a lovely touch to the leaves bunched around him. Thanks so much for sharing your amazing make with us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! hugs, Maura

  2. Oh they are both fabulous, but I do have a preference for that unicorn. The background is just absolutely gorgeous!! It's exactly what a unicorn needs! xxx

  3. Both cards are fun and cute, but I love the first on with the unicorn. It looks like it is on a soap bubble rising in the air. So magical! Thanks for sharing it with us at Seize the Birthday anything goes challenge.

  4. Beautiful Sarah! And I can’t believe you take crafting things on holiday, that’s a dedicated crafter! Love your soft inking of the circular stencil, looks so magical. Thanks for playing at AAA Cards.

  5. Hi Sarah, sorry to bother you through here but think I must have an old email for you. Then winner of the challenge you sponsored at Time Out hasn’t had a response about the 3 stencils she was here we announced the winner

    Could you her in touch with her?


    1. Sorry, Sandie - I have checked and that is an email address that I don’t use any more. Am going to email you directly to get Anila’s Email address!
