4 Rainbow cards with 2 backgrounds

Hi Everyone,

Today, I decided to play with the Paper Rose Diagonal Stripe die. Ever since I saw it I wanted to do this. Really, I am getting 7 ....ish cards. I still have a background from the leftover ink and 2 frames I could use for an different looking cards.

I am using the Paper Rose Diagonal Stripe and their Hello Layered die. With those dies I am also using Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet Distress Inks.

Extra tools are Marvy Jewel Picker, Uniquely Creative Sequins and Multi Mat Medium.

The leftovers I still have to play with are these. 2 frames that could be use to frame something, of course and leftover ink from when I was inking. They can be a quick and easy card. This is how you could get possibly 7 cards out of 2 backgrounds!

You can check out the video here.

Thanks for stopping by. Take Care

I did a stupid mistake! Check out the video below to see.

Brown 12
Grey 20

Versamark embossing ink
Clear embossing ink
Painters Tape- bad move!!

Rainbow Watercolour

Today's card was abit of a play.

I made pretty ,I have 4 of the same card but altered the technique slightly.

This isn’t a new technique. People have been doing this technique for years.

The first let’s talk about inks I used, as they are the same with a variation on the last.

I used Mini Distress Inks. Why? You get a more brighter colour with the original inks.

I used Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet. These are probably my favourite for rainbows.

I applied them all in the same way, the difference is when I spritzed it with Water.

Technique one. Spritz water on to the stamp.

Tap the ink onto the stamp in rainbow order. Be careful with your light colours. I had a scrap piece of cardstock that I swiped the ink pad on to remove any unwanted colour. The water will blend the ink if you don’t get close to other colours, so don’t stress. It’s better to get the water to do the work.

Technique 2: water spritzed on to cardstock before stamping.

Mor movement with the ink with this one.

Technique 3 Spritz water on both stamp and cardstock.

 Now there was an issue. Someone may or may not have accidentally swiped their squeezed lemonade onto this panel instead of the scrap! So you will need to check out the video to see what it looked like before I... mean someone stuffed it!

No redos here. I added more colour which lead to the next card, cleaning up the “fixing”

This one was much darker so I added some sequins and a different sentiment with vellum and I coloured the flowers roughly with the watercolour.

I left the stamp in my MISTI, once the panels were dry I restamped with Versamark and embossed each card. The first 3 with Hero Arts White Satin Pearl embossing powder. The last card I stamped it with versatile and embossed with clear.

I hope you enjoyed it. Please check out the video here to see how I fixed my oops!

Thanks for stopping by.

Bonus Card!! Lily and Moss

I came across a cute little fun fold. If I can find the person I saw I will link to her but there is probably heaps of people that have done this type of card.

I have cut an A4 piece of cardstock at 10.5cm and we will use both sides of the piece.
The first piece score and fold in half at 14.8cm. We then made a cut at 6.3cm from the front panel on the opening edge. Keep this piece.

 The inside "card" is trimmed down to 9.7 x 25.4cm and folded in half. This is glued centred on the back panel opening to the right. Make sure you glue the very back contrast before you glue the inside "card".

Again on the front you need to glue the text panel down before you glue the saved pieced you cut off the front. You can then glue the green woodgrain and place other elements you want.
Starting from the back.
Green Leaf 10.1 x 14.5
Pink marble, Pink and Tile are all 11.9 x 9cm
Text panel 7.5 x 10
Green Wood 5.9 x 10
 Finally, I added the faux stitching and Star Dust stickles over the front of the card.
