What type of card do you make the most? For me it was thank you cards, now it’s birthday cards (I still have to work on the sending part!). And when a brand has a birthday themed release, you know that I’m all for it! Thanks to Honey Bee Stamps I finally have a balloon stencil!
Happy Monday and Happy June! Can you believe its June! LIKE WHAT! Wasn’t it March like yesterday! Well when life turns into an endless loop, its hard to track days as they all just mush together. At least we have some sunny days and the potential of seeing people to look forward to these month, and that made me think its the perfect time to share this set of rainbow cards!
I got a little carried away with while creating the backgrounds, as I was testing out a few different brushes, so why not use them all since I gave so many products that will work well with cloud background! All products I use will be listed at the end of the post.
For the first card, I diecut a stitched rainbow and stitched it using floss in rainbow order. To finish off I stamped a simple hello sentiment in black ink. I trimmed it down a little before adhering it to a A2 size card base.
I almost threw this card out as I messed up with cloud diecuts that were TOO BIG! But after a little encouragement and searching through my stash, I found some smaller diecuts to hide my mess, cause who want to throw away a jewelrainbow! I finished this card the same as the first using a simple hello sentiment in black ink.
What’s better than rainbows and butterflies? Rainbow butterflies, of course! For this card, I stamped one of the images from the Beautiful Butterflies stamp set repeatedly and colored them to create a ‘rainbow’. Once colored, I adhered them to my background adding foam tape to a few to add a little bit of dimension. Finished off the card with a matching sentiment from the same set and some nuvo drops.
For the last card I used a ‘vintage’ Pretty Pink Posh stamp set from 2015! It was a limited edition so unfortunately not available anymore, which is a bummer as I never got the dies back then as I didn’t have a diecutting machine back then! BUT fast forward almost 5 years and this set was still brand new and unstamped, that is why I don’t need to buy more stamps! Just like the butterfly card I colored the images in a rainbow pattern, and fussy cut them, before adhering them to a cloud background using some foam tape for dimension. At which point I realized I didn’t add a sentiment! So I used a leftover vellum cloud, and heat embossed a sentiment onto that!
And that’s a wrap! Thanks for following along! As promised here is a list of all the supplies that I used :
