The Rabbit Hole Designs & Coffee Loving Cardmakers preview



Are you ready for some fun?!  Well you should be because we have another collaboration hop coming your way with the Coffee Loving Cardmakers and The Rabbit Hole Designs.  

Today is PREVIEW DAY 2 and you are going to be seeing all kinds of fun and a little bit of snark. ;)  You have been warned!!!  LOL.  It is exciting because this fabulous new company has products available in the store TODAY as of 4 am PST.  Even better, there is a code for free shipping for any orders over $15 before taxes, valid from Jan. 11- 16th. No code necessary.

BONUS- there are some giveaways, but let's get to the hop first and you can get those details at the bottom of this post.


My card today features Caffeinated Unicorn. Such a fun and silly set! As you can see, the best part (besides the fun image and all the creative possibilities it brings) is the sentiment and the apparent contradiction to the image.  Yes "coffee makes me sparkle," but I look like a zombie!  LOLOLOLOL

I wanted to set the stage for this unicorn in the most magical land.  It features puffy colored clouds, a magical background, pastel colors and sparkles.  I due cut the clouds (Lawn Fawn) and used distress inks with my Blendability Brushes (Trinity) to add color.  The background is an embossing folder and some light purple die cut clouds (PTI).  All this was the perfect stage for the unicorn, which I colored with Copics.  I enjoyed mixing the colors in the hair to add that messy look.  You can't see it here, but you'll notice in the pic below that I added Wink of Stella to a few bits to make it sparkle and match the sentiment.  How do you feel about the little pink bloodshot in the eye?!  LOL.  Oh and the narwhal slippers are awesome!  So much potential to be magical eh?!



Can you see that sparkle?  Such a nice touch to add to our character.
