Happy Sunday, crafty friends! I hope you've had a good weekend so far. We had a great day at home yesterday - the temperature was PERFECT outside. Josh home-brewed for the first time in a couple years so he could use the hops he grew, and he is now invigorated to get back to doing one of the things he loves most....and I just love that for him. We had a friend over who hung out & helped him. They set up our Surface outside and watched football...it felt like a normal fall Saturday, which is just plain glorious right now. Some normalcy feels fantastic.
Our September challenge at Pinkfresh Studio went live today, and this month is all about rainbows! You know I love a good rainbow, so I created a couple cards for it! I actually demonstrated these cards live on Hochanda in July, but never finished them in full or photographed them. So I added some finishing touches to each one, as they were perfect for the challenge!
I hope you'll play along with our challenge this month! There are (2) $50 gift card codes to be won, one for a cardmaker and the other for a scrapbooker. We also love to see your Pinkfresh Studio projects, and it's a great way to connect & create with us. Join in on the fun!
RAINBOW CARD SET
Of course, I've used primarily Pinkfresh Studio products on my cards! All stamps, dies, crystals and inks are from PFS. Here is a list of the main products that I've used on this card, plus you can find my list of tools, etc., at the end of this post. Thank you so much for clicking on my links and shopping from them, as they provide me with a small amount of compensation at no cost to you. I genuinely appreciate your support!
Next I diecut the Artistic Bow from white cardstock and assembled. I layered everything to the card front as shown, then accented with our Crystals Mix in rainbow order to finish. The stamped background is mounted to the cardbase with a full panel of foam adhesive to give it that added dimension that I love!
For the second card, I stamped just a few stripes at an angle using our Pop Out: Straight Stripes stamp set. This is what I love about the versatility of our pop out stamps - you can use them as is with the frame for a fully stamped background, or use use a few to create a clean & simple one like this! No matter what....you will always have perfect stripes. I diecut the Sentiment Suite: Hello exactly the same as the first card, and used it as a guide to stamp the rest of the sentiment as well.
While this card looks different, it is put together pretty much exactly the same as the first card. Easy peasy!I hope you will play along with our September "Rainbow" challenge this month! If you have any questions about my cards, leave them in the comments and I will be sure to reply.
