Wildly chase your dreams

Hey everybody! Happy Thursday – I hope you’re having a great week! This day is very special every year – it’s my sister’s birthday and she would have been 69 today. She’s been gone a number of years and I still miss her terribly. On a brighter note, I’m up on the Prickley Pear Stamps blog today with an inspiration project featuring the new Rainbow Dreams stamp set that was released yesterday! This stamp set is part of the amazing Celestial Collection, so stay tuned for more inspiration to come! You know how I love fun folds, and this one is an interlocking gatefold! I’ve made a few of these in the past and yes, they are quite fun!

I cut a standard A2 size landscape gatefold card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with patterned paper layering panels from the Keep It Simple Lilac 12×12 Collection Pack. I cut two frames from CutCardStock Bright Silver Foil using two Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A & B dies and adhered them together for a little extra stability. I stamped the rainbow on two layered die cut rectangles (also from the Spellbinders die sets) cut from Solar White cardstock, and colored the rainbow with Kirarina Wink markers and the clouds with an alcohol marker.

I stamped the sentiment on a scrap piece of Solar White cardstock, colored it with a purple Ultra Fine Point Sharpie marker and trimmed it. I popped the sentiment up on double-sided foam strips, and added two Eyelet Outlet Enamel Hearts along with 3mm White Pearl Strips around the silver foil frame, which completed the project.

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
