Sorry for taking so long to post something. I have been a bit under the weather. Speaking of the weather, it certainly seems to affect my card making themes lately. Last week we had some very rainy days and this just seemed to fit with the cards I was making using Sparkle and Sprinkle’s new Spring Swirl Set #425. It has such pretty and fun stamps and sayings.
For this card I decided to create a background with the look of a rainbow. I guess I was looking forward to the end of the rain – isn’t that when the rainbow comes out? I used some alcohol inks on light blue glossy cardstock. I loved how it came out. I layered this onto a medium blue card base. Then I stamped 3395-425B Galoshes in blue dye ink onto white cardstock and cut it out with a label die. This is layered onto another label die cut from the same blue glossy cardstock and added to the bottom right corner of the card. I added G1088 Bubble Gum semi –transparent glitter to the flowers on the stamped galoshes and G1058 Crystal Ice semi-transparent glitter to the stems on the galoshes and the edges of the blue label die. This glitter is soooo sparkly and adds so much to your cards. Next I stamped 3393-425AA Swirl Snail in red on pink cardstock, cut it out, and pop dotted it below the white label.
I created a “sun” using light yellow cardstock cut with two different dies, sponging the edges with yellow ink, and layering them. I ran some sheer yellow polka dot ribbon through the largest die and tied it into a bow, put a large yellow button in the middle, and glued it to the top left corner of the card.
I used the blue dye ink to stamp 3401-425B Hope Is sentiment on the bottom left corner of the card. What a great saying!! It is perfect with those cute little galoshes.
