Stampin’ Up! Rainbow Birthday Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a sketch challenge.  Happy hopping!

When I saw the new 2018-2019 In-Colors I knew they’d be perfect the Sunshine & Rainbows Bundle.

I started my card out with Blueberry Bushel cardstock.  I then took a panel of Lovely Lipstick and Grapefruit Grove cardstock and matted them on Whisper White cardstock.  I wrapped around it some Grapefruit Grove Twine from the Nature’s Twine Combo Pack (available June 1st).

This twine is GREAT!!!!  The only way I can describe it is it has a little “umf” in it…like it’s stiffer, so it makes a beautiful bow!  Get a sampling of this twine and all the new ribbon in my Annual Catalog Product Share!

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Pattern Party Decorative Mask and Embossing Paste to create my clouds.  Embossing paste adds such great texture to the card and although I’ve left it white, you can dye it different colors.

Next I used the Sunshine & Rainbow Bundle to create my rainbow.  I cut the arcs in Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch, Call Me Clover, Blueberry Bushel, and Rich Razzleberry cardstock.

*This bundle is set to retire, so get it while you can!

I put washi tape all along the back of the rainbow, first to hold the colors together, but also so I could adhered Stampin’ Dimensionals behind it!  I stamped a sun from the Sunshine & Rainbows stamp set in Pineapple Punch ink.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Blueberry Bushel ink.

Enjoy!

Sunshine & Rainbows – Hand Stamped Sentiments #287

Today’s my second post as part of the design team with Hand Stamped Sentiments!!!

It’s so exciting!

Today we have a color challenge for you.  I sure hope you’ll participate!

If you missed seeing my blog post name it’s Sunshine & Rainbows…

Now if you’re thinking these colors have nothing to do with a rainbow, well, you’d kind of be correct.

But this is stamping and we get to have some fun!

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then took a brayer and “painted” on a Soft Sky background.  I stamped a few raindrops from the Sunshine & Rainbows Stamp Set in Soft Sky ink over it.

I used the coordinating Rainbow Builder Framelits to cut out the rainbow using Flirty Flamingo, Lemon Lime Twist, and Soft Sky cardstock, two of each.  I also cut out the background clouds, as well as the smaller clouds from Whisper White cardstock.

I took the smaller clouds and rolled the edge in Versamark ink.  I then sprinkled them with Silver Embossing Powder and heat set them.  I adhered them using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment in Flirty Flamingo ink in the bottom corner.

Thanks for swinging by and don’t forget to play along with our challenge! 🙂


RETIRING LIST:

Don’t walk – run…

That is to the Retiring List – it’s now live and there’s A LOT to see!

You can find the Retiring Stamps here


The Retiring Bundles here (please note, that although some individual product is continuing over, all current bundles are retiring)…


And Everything Else here.

All items EXCEPT for Stamps are WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!!

NOTE:  You will see ALL ink pads retiring.

WHY?  Stampin’ Up! has reformatted their ink pads.  The new ink pads are easier to open and come with a new formula that prevents bubbling on the stamps!!!

There is a color revamp coming in the Annual Catalog.  Want a sneak peek?
Check out yesterday’s blog post here.

Stampin’ Up! Sunshine & Rainbows Birthday

Happy spring!

What more says spring than Rainbows!

Well, first you need rain, and not snow, for rainbows which we have yet to have in Upstate New York, but soon enough we’ll have Sunshine & Rainbows, which is the bundle I used for today’s card.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.

Note: This thick cardstock is perfect when you’re using Whisper White as the base to your card.  It holds up much better and is able to “stand up” unlike the regular Whisper White.

I took Pool Party ink and a brayer to create the inked look behind my rainbow.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the sentiment from the Sunshine & Rainbows Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry ink in the bottom corner.  I added a piece of white sparkly washi tape from the Myths & Magic Specialty Washi Tape on either side of it.

I created my rainbow using the Rainbow Builder  Framelits and Berry Burst, Peekaboo Peach, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Island Indigo, Rich Razzlberry, and Sweet Sugarplum cardstock.  I cut the two clouds out of Whisper White cardstock and added a few Clear Epoxy Shapes around the card to finish it off.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s challenge at The Paper Players.

Stampin’ Up! Sunshine & Rainbows Card

I don’t know about where you are, but it is bitter cold here in Upstate New York, so I’ll do just about anything to get some sunshine and warmth.

My card today did just that for me using the Sunshine & Rainbows Stamp Set.

I start out with Tempting Turquoise cardstock.  Next I matted a piece of Soft Sky cardstock on Whisper White cardstock.

I created my clouds and rainbow using the Sunshine & Rainbows Bundle and Berry Burst, Peekaboo Peach, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi, Tempting Turquoise, Sweet Sugarplum, and Rich Razzleberry cardstock for the rainbow and Whisper White and vellum cardstock for the clouds.

I stamped the sentiment from the Sunshine & Rainbows Stamp Set in Berry Burst ink and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Clear Epoxy Circles over the clouds.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.
