Unicorns & Rainbows!

Hi everybody! Wanda here! Hope your weekend is going great. I have a super fun and happy card to share today; made with the adorable Unicorns and Rainbows stamp set from Mama Elephant. EEEP! Unicorns and Rainbows are everywhere – they are trending and so hot right now. Who doesn’t love a unicorn? They remind me of the fun toys of my younger days and just generally make me smile.

I colored up the cute unicorns and then die cut pretty, puffy clouds and a colorful rainbow. What a scene! I used my Copic Markers to match my cardstock and had loads of fun coloring rainbow unicorn hair!


I chose pink instead of red for my top rainbow color, because, well….because it’s so fresh! I stamped the two unicorn images in the Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink and die cut them out with the matching dies. The Clouds dies cut like a dream. I cut two pieces and layered the top one with foam tape.


This sentiment is the best! Here you can see my cardstock layers and how I tucked the rainbow into the cloud layers.


It’s hard to photograph, but the unicorn wings, the star, and the horns were all coated with a layer of clear glitter Wink of Stella pen for a touch of shimmer.


Here are my Copic choices for today’s card.



I added a few clear gems at the end for a bit more sparkle. The unicorns and rainbow are mounted onto the card with foam squares.

  1. Even though the weather is a bit overcast here in the Caribbean, that rainbow just brightened my day! Beautiful colours! Beautiful cards!

  2. Cute card! love the color choices for your rainbow! I’m still having fun with all the great floral images out there. Love watercoloring even tho I’m a real amateur.

  3. Unicorns are definitely the best, & they also remind me of being a little girl in the 80’S!

  4. What a beautiful, beautiful card! Great coloring techniques! I have been wanting to learn how to use Copics, but I am still a novice. :-)

  5. I <3 this unicorn set. I keep thinking I need to order it but I do believe it will make it to the checkout today. :)

  6. Such a delightfully vibrant card! Your little unicorn scene is darling, Wanda!

    The trend that I really like right now is that of cutting the mat/frame from the same watercoloured background so that the frame is an extension of the mat. Does that make sense?! (I did it on my second card
    HEREr – and I’ve been seeing it all around. Love this trend!)

  7. Like how the rainbow is placed on the card. Not fond of Unicorns and I always thought Unicorns do not have wings and only had a horn but a Pegasus which I’m fond of does have wings. Have a BEE-utiful day!

  8. Fun and colorful! As they say, everything comes around again. Unicorns in bright colors were big when I was young – fun to see them back.

  9. My favorite trend right now is the beautiful scripty writing. I may have to settle for the stamps and die-cuts for now, but I’ll keep working on it. I love this card, so much better than store bought!

  10. This is just such a happy card! Love that you used pink instead of red – it just feels right somehow.

  11. Such a fun colorful card! I’ve been into utilizing flowers more lately…..possibly the excitement of Spring coming! :)

  12. Sweet card and so great with all those really pretty spring colors. Love the design on it. Thanks for sharing.

  13. What a fun and cheery card! Love that sentiment! Not quite sure if this is a trend or not, but I’m loving plaid patterned paper. Makes for a great background on cards.

  14. Awww so cute, love the unicorns but I haven’t got any :(
    It usually takes me a while to catch on to trends, so no point in asking me what’s current LOL

  15. Delightful! Reminds me of my 40-year-old daughter’s childhood when she played with My Little Ponies and Rainbow Brite.

  16. I love this card! Unicorns have also been a favorite since I was a little girl! The card is so bright and cheerful! And love the coloring! When money is not so tight, I may have to by myself these stamps and dies!
