It is time for a new spring themed challenge over at Retro Rubber! We have a few simple rules to play along. 1) Use at least one stamp that is a year or older 2) Tell us how old the stamp is 3) Enter up to ten challenges including ours. Have fun!
A few years back I purchased a club membership with The Stamps of Life. The theme for March of 2017 was rainbows. I've used these images a few times as they make great encouragement cards, spring time cards, and birthday cards. All images and dies are from The Stamps of Life Rainbow2Stamp, Sayings4Rainbows, Solids4Rainbows, and Rainbows2stamp Die.
- The rainbow and cloud image is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black.
- Using a stamp positioner I stamped each color of the rainbow separately. Easy, peasy with clear stamps! The following Versa Colors were used: Scarlet, Orange, Canary, Fresh Green, Cyan and Heliotrope. The entire image is die cut with the outline die.
- A set of clouds were die cut and then stamped with Essential Glue Pad and then dusted with Fun Stamps Snow White Fun Flock. The clouds have a slightly "fuzzy texture" if you look closely! After drying I tapped off the excess Fun Flock.
- The background was created with a Deja Views ruler I received for National Scrapbook Day back in 2001. It included both the sun burst and the cloud shapes. The sunburst was traced on a post-it then fussy cut and both the positive and negative parts were used. First I placed the post-it to ink the sun with Canary and Orange. Then the sun was covered while I inked in the layers of clouds using Versa Color Smoke Blue.
- The sentiment is stamped in Orange and heat embossed with Iridescent Embossing Powder.
- The base card is inked with Orange as well.
- The layers are adhered together using foam adhesive to add a little dimension.
- The final touch was a few sequins from Spieglmomscraps Southern Blue Bells. They are applied with On Point Glue.
All the supplies unless other wise mentioned are by Tsukineko and Imagine.
The day I made this card the wind was gusting to 38 MPH, but I wanted to take the photo in sunlight as the sequins, iridescent embossing powder and fun flock would all photograph better. Solution? Headed to my greenhouse and set up a little photo shot!
Please do come join the fun at Retro Rubber and play along with our current challenge! Head over and see the lovely cards the rest of the DT created for this challenge, they are lovely!
