Rainbow Maker, Day 6 Cards

Day 6 of Online Card Classes’ Rainbow Maker class covered ‘additional rainbow ideas’. I tried out Kristina Werner’s rainbow dot art technique. I don’t have many colours of Nuvo drops, but I do have a lot of Ranger enamel accents as I snagged a bargain from Simon Says Stamp a little while ago, so used those.

Anyway, I wanted to stick with simple dots and thought my current favourite embossing folder from Studio Carabelle would provide the perfect template for this!

This was so much fun to do!! I finished off the card with a simple sentiment using a Mama Elephant die cut which I dipped into Rainbow embossing powder. Love the effect!

Glittery Yay

Hi There!

The Freshly Made Sketches challenge is celebrating 300 sketches this week and here is my take on their fabulous sketch.

I used a die from Clearly Besotted, plus a Tim Holtz/Sizzix embossing folder and patterned paper from My Minds Eye.

After cutting out the ‘yay’, I coated it with sparkle embossing powder – this card really sparkles in real life – will add a close up later!

Tropical giraffes

Hi everyone!

After watching the Online Card Classes Rainbow Maker videos for today, I was itching to get ink smooshing, but I also wanted to do a card for this week’s Less is More challenge (tropical colours). So I tweaked my rainbow a bit (but that’s ok, right?) and came up with a smooshed background using Altenew’s inks. I used the gorgeous giraffe dies from Poppystamps and a couple of dies from Memory Box and Simon Says Stamp to complete my card, which I’m also entering into this week’s Casology challenge (safari).

Seeing Stars

Hi Everyone!

Well, I don’t know what’s happened to summer! It’s very autumnal here today, which made taking a photo of today’s card quite challenging!

Anyway, here it is! I used a stamp and die set from My Favourite Things to create the main image and then added a sentiment using a combination of stamps and alphabet dies from Altenew. The letters are actually cut from glitter paper, but I just couldn’t capture the shimmer in a photo today.

I’m entering this card into two challenges – Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge (seeing stars) and the My Favorite Things Colour Challenge.

Be Safe. Eat Cake.

Hi Everyone!

For today’s card, I used a new Riley’s & Company sentiment – which I HAD to have as soon as I saw it! I have a lot of cake stamps so I have a feeling this will be appearing on quite a few cards!

I used an older stamp/die set from Simon Says Stamp which I coloured using my Twinkling H2Os. The background was created using some controlled ink smooshing!

I Heart Summer!

Hi Everyone!

The theme for this month’s Simon Says Stamp Work it Wednesday is ‘Summer’ and so I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to use my Sunny Studios layered popsicles. I find their layering stamps super easy to line up – and the popsicles are no exception!

Once I stamped the images several times using Altenew inks, I felt I needed ‘something’ to anchor the collection. I did a little controlled ink smooshing and then added a border die from Poppystamps – I think it almost looks like some sort of quirky popsicle holder! I added a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp to complete the card

Thanks for looking!
