Rainbow of Happiness Happy Birthday Card


Hello and welcome to my blog. Today, I am sharing another card using the Rainbow of Happiness stamp set. I can't stop using the happy rainbow stamps and they pair so well with the fun Sunshine & Rainbow papers (they are one of the Sale-A-Bration items that can be earned for FREE with a qualifying order). They are such happy, fun papers to use - gorgeous colours and designs. And, even better that they were free!

I have the rainbow hoops set up on my Stamparatus so that I can easily replicate their placement. This time, I have used a pastel arrangement of So Saffron, Highland Heather, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Blushing Bride. Next time I want to try a brighter array!


The card layout is one that I adore. It's simple. It's classic. And, it allows the pattered paper to shine. As the sunshine print and the rainbow complement each other so well it was easy to create this fun birthday card. 


The birthday sentiment comes from the Artfully Layered set, and it fits perfectly in one of the Stitched Rectangle dies. I'll definitely be using that combination again! The Basic Rhinestones were added to represent raindrops - y
ou need sun and rain to make a rainbow don't you? And, they look really pretty! The Bumblebee Gingham ribbon finishes the card off to perfection! Yellow is not one of my go to colours, but I think with this one it has well and truly won me over. I hope you like it too.

Rainbow of Happiness Cards for Customer Thank Yous for January 2022 - Kylie's Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop


Hello! I am participating in a blog hop organised by Kylie and Bruno Bertucci as part of their Demonstrator Training Program. We are a group of Demonstrators from around the world who are taking part in training that is helping us to build a successful Stampin' Up!® business and to reach some goals that we have set. So, whether you are a regular visitor or if you have hopped in from another blog, I am delighted to welcome you here to my blog!  



Throughout the hop we are sharing ideas and inspiration for Thank You cards to send to our customers during January.
 

If you place an order with me during January you will receive one of these cards as a thank you for your purchase together with this month's All Star video tutorial bundle as a gift.

I included a little card with the new Mini Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration brochure that I gave to customers, so I thought it would be apt to create another card featuring the same stamp set. I have used some of the free Sale-A-Bration papers for the backgrounds - I have a batch of Bumblebee ones using the Simply Marbelous papers and another batch of Pool Party ones using the Sunshine & Rainbow papers. Aren't those hearts on the Pool Party DSP adorable?


I stamped the rainbow with the help of my Stamparatus. It's fabulous when you want to create multiples of the same thing, especially when the images need precise positioning! The cards are accessorised with coordinating ribbon, Brushed Brass Butterflies and/or Irredescent Rhinestones plus a die cut from the Amazing Thanks set. The outline layer is in Basic White and it is topped with a detailed coordinating layer - each of the Thanks has been trimmed to remove the s so that I could make the message say Thank You.

Thank you so much for visiting today, I hope you have been inspired! As mentioned at the beginning, this is a blog hop so make sure you hop ar0und to see the other amazing projects on the hop! Click on the links below to visit them.

Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop - January 2022


Hello and welcome to my blog! Today I am taking part in a blog hop with some fellow enthusiasts who love sharing their creative talents using their Stampin' Up!® products.


This month the Stamping Inkspirations blog hop has a different twist - our challenge is to work with a sketch. 


I chose to use the In The Moment stamps for my project today as I thought it lent itself really well to the sketch we are working with. I have had this stamp set for quite a while, but until now I haven't created a thing with it. Now I have started, I don't know what took me so long and I feel on a roll with it.


The In The Moment stamp set includes some fabulous sentiments, but I needed a birthday card so I added a simple slender sentiment form the Timeless Tulips set.

Pretty Designer Series Paper from the Heart & Home set covers all of the Basic Black card front bar the portion that is exposed by the scalloped border. It was easy to create the border using the border die from the Scalloped Contours set. 

The focal image was stamped, using Black Memento ink, onto a square of Basic White card and also on to a sticky note to create a mask. Masking the focal image allowed me to colour the sky using a Blending Brush with Balmy Blue ink. Using a light touch with a small circular motion creates a subtle bloom around the image. Removing the mask reveals the Balmy Blue sky in the background and then all that was left for me to do was to colour the image with Stampin' Blends.


To finish the card I wrapped some Black Bakers Twine around the DSP layer, tied a floppy bow and added a few enamel dots to complement the slim birthday sentiment. It was really helpful to work with a sketch to make this card - it was a bit like following a recipe which is accompanied by a delicious looking photo - I knew where I was going with it!


I hope that you are inspired by my card today and that you will continue along the hop to see what the others have created too. Enjoy the projects. We would love to hear from you and so if you have been inspired, please leave a comment.
