Rainbow Texture Paste | Celebration Video Hop

Hey crafty people! Today I am excited to be sharing a card I created for a video hop celebrating It’s Me, JD hitting 50,000 subscribers on her YouTube channel! We celebrated with some rainbow themed cards and there is also a giveaway! If you want to find out more about the giveaway head over to It’s Me, JD’s blog.

To start this card I cut a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock to 3.5 x 8.5. I then picked out a sentiment from the Big Birthday Greetings stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and stamped it on the panel with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

Next I taped the panel to a craft mat with the Abstract Triangles stencil from Simon Says Stamp over the top. I dyed some Ranger transparent gloss texture paste with Distress Oxide ink and spread it over the stencil. I used the colors Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries, Abandoned Coral, Wild Honey, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean, and Tumbled Glass.

In order to dye the texture paste all you need to do is smoosh the ink pad onto the craft mat, add the paste, and then mixed it up with a palette knife. Once I was done added the paste to the top of the panel I washed the stencil off and did the bottom half of the panel as well. Next I removed and washed the stencil, the craft mat, and the palette knife and then I set the panel aside to dry for about an hour.

I popped up the panel onto a 4 x 9 card base with foam tape. To finish it up I added a few Moonshine sequins from Simon Says Stamp.

Rainbow Shaker Card | Pink & Main

Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing a card created using the Bright Side Stamp and Die set from Pink and Main.

1.jpg

First I stamped the rainbow from the set with Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam ink and colored it in with Copic markers. I die cut it with the coordinating die. I also used the die set to cut out some clouds from white glitter cardstock.

I cut out a frame from some scrap white cardstock and glued some acetate to it to make a shaker window. I added doubled up foam tape around the back of the frame and filled up the shaker with clear glitter and micro pearls. I closed up the shaker with some Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock.

I glued my shaker to an A2 size card base. I then glued the rainbow and clouds on the shake. I stamped a sentiment on white cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink and popped it up on the card.

To finish up the card I went over the sentiment with a glitter brush.

Dreamy Pastel Rainbow Card | Pink and Main

Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing a sneak peek of some products from Pink and Main’s upcoming release. This release is coming out on May 20th and I adore it, probably because of all the rainbows!

3.jpg

For this card I first used the Rainbow Dies from the release to cut out my pastel rainbow. I cut the rainbow die from six different colors of cardstock to make the colors. I adhered all the pieces of the rainbow together on a paper template.

Next I stamped a sentiment from the new Bright Side stamp set onto a piece of Cotton Candy cardstock from Simon Says Stamp with Dusty Rose ink from Gina K. I then took clouds from that same stamp set and stamped them on that panel with Versamark ink to create a background. I filled in the clouds with a white colored pencil using a gentle pressure.

I glued the background panel to an A2 card base. Next I used a white gel pen and a T-square ruler to add a border along the edge. I popped up my rainbow shape with foam tape on the card. I then die cut 2 clouds from the Bright Side die set and popped them up on both ends of the rainbow.

2.jpg

For the finishing touches I first added some glitter to the two white clouds with Glossy Accents. I then went over the rainbow with a glitter brush. Finally I added some clear sequins across the card.

Pop-up Shadow Box Card | Rainbows & Unicorns

Today I created a whimsical pop-up shadow box card using the Rainbows & Unicorns stamp set from My Favorite Things.

3.jpg

First I cut two pieces of Blue Violet cardstock from Simon Says Stamp to be 5.5 x 7.5. I added some score marks on both ends of both pieces of paper and the .5” and 1” score line. Check out the video to understand this a little better. I also cut a piece of Wild Wisteria cardstock from Gina K Designs to be 5.5 x 5.5. Using the Hero Arts nested circle dies I cut a large circle out of one of the Blue Violet panels and the Wild Wisteria panel.

I stamped some images from the Rainbows & Unicorns stamp set on Neenah Solar White cardstock with Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam ink. I colored them in with Copic markers and cut them out with my Scan N Cut. I also stamped a sentiment from the set on a strip of white cardstock. I adhered that sentiment strip behind the Wild Wisteria panel and then glued that panel on top of my front card panel. I added two of the vellum clouds to the back of the front panel so you can see them peeking through the window.

2.jpg

I glued a piece of Really Rainbow patterned paper from Lawn Fawn to my back card panel. I then glued two of the vellum clouds and the rainbow image on top of that. I glued my unicorn image to a strip of sturdy plastic and then sandwiched that strip in between my front and back panels.

To finish up the card I added some white gel pen highlights and some Wink of Stella glitter.

My Husband Makes Me a Birthday Card!

Today my husband took over and made me a birthday card!

First he took a piece of Bristol Smooth paper and added strips of washi tape across it. He then blended each section with a different color of Distress Oxide ink. He used the colors Festive Berries, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Lucky Clover, Blueprint Sketch, and Wilted Violet. He then laid out a bunch of the sentiments from the Tiny Words stamp set from Simon Says Stamp along the white stripes created by the washi tape and stamped them with the Misti Tool using a gray ink.

Next he picked out the numbers 3 and 1 from the Birthday Numbers stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and also the happy birthday sentiment from the Greetings Galore stamp set from My Favorite Things. He embossed them with white embossing powder on Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock.

He stamped the balloons from the Birthday Numbers stamp set onto some Neenah Solar white cardstock with Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam ink. He colored those in with Copic markers. He used the Scan N Cut 2 in order to cut out all of the stamped images.

2.jpg

To put the card together he first glued the background panel to an A2 size card base. He used liquid glue to adhere the balloons and foam tape to pop up the numbers and the sentiment. To finish up he went over the balloons with Glossy Accents.
