you color my world

Hi friends! I hope you had a great week and have something fun planned this weekend! I’m guesting this month for Just Us Girls Challenge and I’m delighted to share my project for Color Week #572 – Rainbow Colors! I’ve mentioned before that clean and simple cards have always been intimidating, but over the last year or so I’ve become more comfortable creating them. When Vicki sent me this challenge graphic, I knew immediately what I was going to create!

I used stamp sets from Paper Smooches and Prickley Pear Stamps to create a CAS love-themed card featuring a shimmery rainbow with puffy clouds. How stinkin’ cute is this?!

I created a standard A2 top folding landscape card base and rounded the bottom right corner. I stamped the rainbow and little birds on the card base and colored them with Prismacolor pencils. I added shimmer to the rainbow with a Clear Star Gelly Roll pen, then stamped and die cut the clouds and affixed them to the ends of the rainbow with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment in the bottom right corner and added two stamped and die cut hearts.

I kept the inside super simple with just a sentiment stamped in red and colored in with the Clear Star Gelly Roll pen, and an added black glitter alpha sticker.

And one more look… such a fun design! Sometimes less is more! ;)

Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock
Stamps: Paper Smooches Cosmos and Word Salad stamp sets, Prickley Pear Stamps Noah’s Ark stamp set

Scrappy hugs,

    This is so sweet! I love that shimmery rainbow with the puffy clouds, little bluebirds and hearts. Now Somewhere Over the Rainbow is in my head. Fabulous creation using this week’s colors!
