Thanks for stopping in today. I have a short tutorial for you featuring the recently released Harvest Rainbow stamp and die set from Trinity Stamps. The idea of this set is just beautiful and when you put the color to paper it just doesn’t disappoint at all! So many variations are possible too! Practically endless!
Here’s a peek at the finished card before we dive in. I specifically chose a muted ink palette because I knew I wanted it to feel like fall and also mat it on a kraft card base. I think they work well together. Let’s get started, shall we?
I used my MISTI for all of the stamping today but you really don’t have to, it just makes life a little easier. I started by stamping the outline image in black. Then, working from the smallest rainbow band outward, I lined up and inked the solid images that fill the layers in. Super simple.
Then I used the coordinating dies to cut the rainbow out. Aren’t those colors so pretty together? This just makes me happy!
Next, I took a kraft panel and placed it in my MISTI. I pulled out all of the individual leaf stamps from the set and created a cluster. I stamped it and then rotated my paper and stamped it again. I rearranged the stamps and did it again. This left the center with a few gaps which I filled in individually. Then I trimmed this panel down to 4×5.25 inches and added foam tape to the back.
After popping the background panel up on a kraft card base, I added foam to the rainbow and placed it on my card too. I stamped the sentiment in the set and used the coordinating dies to cut it out next and popped it up with foam squares.
To finish things off I glued down a scattering of gold satin baubles across the design. I love the matte finish on these and how it gives a little shine without being overbearing on a more toned down color palette.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
