Shine Bright

4/15/22 Winner at StarStampz Challenge Blog!

Hi everyone! It’s Wednesday and I hope you’re having a great week! The weeks sure do seem to go by faster and faster! ;) Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’ve popped in today to share an awesome Tape Runner DT inspiration project! I created a sweet mini slimline encouragement card featuring some STAMPlorations Rainbow Ephemera Tiles, a scalloped die cut, and a little bit o’ bling. And of course, all panels were adhered with Retractable Tape Runner! I love rainbows because they are a sign of hope and good things to come. I donated this card to the Bearly Arts Cards for Cubs project so the rainbow theme fit perfectly!

As mentioned above, all panels were adhered with Retractable Tape Runner. Wet glue was used only to adhere the narrow strips and bling. I cut a mini slim card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock along with a layering panel from CutCardStock Basis Light Yellow cardstock which I adhered to the card base. I also cut a scalloped border and strip from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Blue Raspberry cardstock. I trimmed the STAMPlorations Rainbow Ephemera Tiles that I received in a Paper Goods sampler with one of my orders (aren’t they awesome?!) and adhered them to the card front with 1mm-thick double-sided adhesive foam squares. I adhered the scalloped border and strip, and stamped the sentiment from the Avery Elle Rainbow Builder stamp set in Catherine Pooler Fiesta Blue ink. I stamped the sentiment a second time in Versamark and added Judi-Kins Iridescent Sparkle embossing powder. I stamped the sentiment a third time in Versamark and added Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder to ensure the iridescent sparkle wouldn’t flake off. I added Eyelet Outlet Clear Jewel Bling to the scalloped border to complete the card front.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a strip of CutCardStock Pop-Tone Blue Raspberry cardstock. I left the panel blank leaving plenty of room for a custom message, and layered it on CutCardStock Basis Light Yellow cardstock.

And one more peek… such an awesome card with a message of hope! And having great adhesive is definitely a plus! Win-win!
