Happy Tuesday all! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend celebrating Valentine’s Day, Mardi Gras or just a nice weekend relaxing!!! Now it is time to get out those crafty supplies and create this amazing rainbow card because today is Technique Tuesday!!!
LOVE THIS! I think I like the stars better than the scallop but either way these cards are AMAZING!!!! Now let’s get started!
SUPPLIES NEEDED: Irresistibly Yours Designer Series Paper, Sponge Daubers, Ink Pads, Paper Towel, Greeting Stamp
You will start with a piece of Irresistibly Yours Designer Series Paper (Sale-A-Bration) measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. Get out your ink pads and Sponge Daubers. I used Bermuda Bay, Tempting Turquoise, Mossy Meadow, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, and Elegant Eggplant. Starting on one corner start with your Bermuda and go diagonal. Just add enough color for the look you want and you don’t need to go really wide. Take your next color and overlap it a little with the previous color so they blend together really well. I was able to use each color twice but as you can see in the two samples above, some colors are wider and my angles are different. That is okay!!!! Love it! Once you are all done adding your rainbow colors, you will take the paper towel to wipe off access ink that is sitting on top of those embossed images. You will really start to see your white embossed image POP right now! Now you can layer this onto your card front. I used Whisper White Cardstock. For my greetings, I used the Label Love Stamp Set and coordinating Artisan Label Punch (Bundle & Save!). The card on the left I used Pumpkin Pie Ink and for the card on the right, I used my markers in the same colors as the rainbow to color the stamp! LOVE IT!
