Hero Arts – Sending Rainbow Hugs

Hello friends!

Like many of you, I really love rainbow cards – especially during these difficult times. Rainbow colors just make me happy! 🙂 So today I have a card for you using emboss resist and a little rainbow watercoloring with Distress Ink reinkers. I only have a couple of those reinkers but they are super easy to use and I forgot how vibrant the colors are!

I used a couple of small stamps for this card, all from Hero Arts “Acts Of Kindness” stamp set. Hope you like it!

Lawn Fawn – CAS Fairy Card

Hello and happy Saturday! How are you doing?

I have a clean and simple (CAS) card for you today. It’s a card using only one single stamp set, which is rare for me! I chose the adorable Fairy Friends from Lawn Fawn to create with and kept the design simple with just one layer … except that I couldn’t resist adding a die-cut butterfly – but that’s more of an embellishment than a second layer, don’t you think? 😀

Altenew – Single Dahlia Stencil

Hello friends!

Are you having such lovely sunshine today as well? We do, and I am very grateful for it – it makes this whole lockdown a little more bearable!

During the current Coloring Challenge from Kathy Racoosin, I used a new-to-me Altenew stencil to color a background. The stencil is called “Layered Dahlia Stencil A” as it’s part of a layering set of two stencils. For now, I only bought the A stencil and I wanted to show you how beautiful the result can look if you use just the single stencil with different colors of dye ink! You can see my Coloring Challenge post of the background over here on Instagram.

To finish my card, I wanted to add a large sentiment with die cuts … And since I am very into the look of two different fonts together right now, one straight and one curvy, I created it with the help of an Altenew word die combined with alphabet dies.

I took the time to add some itty-bitty pieces of foam tape not only behind the “XO” but also behind the “love” die-cut and I love the dimension I got from it. Here’s a close up photo:
