Hey friends! Miss Ink Stamps came out with an amazing new release a couple weeks ago and I finally carved out some time to play with the new rainbow builder stencil set and I’m officially obsessed! I have rainbows everywhere…literally. I love them in all different combinations, shapes and sizes! They are so much fun! I paired them with some of my favorite Thermoweb products to step them up a notch and added sentiments from the amazing new Sunshine and Rainbows sentiment stamp set!
So, today I have 3 cards and a tag to share with you! Aren’t they all so much fun!?! I can’t get over looking at them. Let’s take a look at each one and I’ll go through the basics of how I put them together.
First up is the super fun slimline card because it was probably the most labor intensive one of them all. To ink the rainbows I started by marking the center of the paper with a pencil and did the first stencil layer (red and green on this one). I inked them up center, left, then right. This goes for all of the cards, I inked up everything for one stencil first, then everything for the second, and finished with the decorative layer last. The white panel for this card is 8.5×2.75 inches. I added 1/4 inch strips of silver glitter paper to the top and bottom and popped it up on a yellow slimline panel. Then added it to a white card base. I finished things off by stamping a sentiment on a Newton’s Nook banner trio die and popping it up with foam squares.
For this sherbet rainbow cuteness, I inked up the layers with some lighter, non-traditional colors. Then finished things off with bubblegum glitz gel! I stamped the sentiment with the same purple that I inked the outer layer with. The white panel measures 3.75×5 inches and is popped up on a piece of Lawn Fawn teal Let it Shine paper. That measures 4×5.25 inches and is popped up on a white card base.
This card is just so much fun! I inked up the rainbows in all different color combinations and then spread transfer gel through the decorative stencil layer and set it aside to dry. While it was drying, I turned on the laminator to heat up and also stamped and heat embossed a sentiment on black cardstock. I trimmed that into a strip and cut a banner tail on one end. When everything was ready, I ran the rainbow panel through the laminator with silver shattered glass decofoil! It’s sooooo cool in the light! I trimmed the panel down to 4×5.25 inches and popped it up on a white card base. Then I added foam strips to the sentiment and popped it on the left-middle-ish of the design. (That’s a very technical term.) 😉
Last but not least, I thought it would be fun to ink up a tag in the mix of everything else. So I die cut the Newton’s Nook Fancy Edges Tag twice from white and once from black. Then I used one of the fancy edges to cut a topper from the black and glued it to one of the white ones. I lined up the rainbow stencil and inked up the layers. I spread transfer gel through the decorative layer again and let it dry. This time I used blue decofoil flock for a little fuzzy fun texture! Last, I popped it in my MISTI and stamped a sentiment on the top left of the tag. Then I chose a few fun ribbons and threaded them through both tags and tied it with baker’s twine. I like having the double layer of tags so I can write on the back one and don’t have to worry about anything bleeding through to the pretty front that I decorated.
Phew! That was a lot of rainbows!!! Oh, but wait…while I was impatiently waiting to get my Sunshine and Rainbows stamp set in the mail, I had played with the rainbow stencil and couldn’t resist completing a card. So here’s a fun bonus for you today!
This rainbow has brighter color palette but I used the same silver shattered glass decofoil. Only, this sentiment comes from the new Lovely Unicorns stamp set. Isn’t it just perfect! The white panel measures 4×5.25 and the black is just 1/8 inch wider for a tiny border and there is foam tape between both layers, ending on a white card base.
So much rainbow fun! I hope you enjoyed it all and found a little inspiration to create something wonderful and share it with someone!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
