Technique Tuesday Rainbow Chevron Thank You Card & More

I'm sure it's no secret by now that I LOVE bright colors and rainbows absolutely make my heart swoon!  I blame it on growing up in the 80's.  ;)  Today I have two cards to share using a rainbow theme.

For my first card I repeatedly stamped Technique Tuesday's chevron border stamps using versamark ink & white embossing powder on an A2 card panel.  After heat setting it, I cut my panel into strips between each "V" and used an ink resist technique with all my favorite distress ink colors.  I then pieced them back together on my card base to create this fun rainbow look.

To continue my rainbow theme I repeatedly stamped the word "thanks" in each of the same colors and fussy cut the individual letters out to adhere directly to my card.

My next card uses some fun circle paperclips (available HERE) that I purchased at my local Staples.  I wanted to do something fun with them so I cross-stitched them on my card front with different colors of embroidery floss to match the patterned paper in my border.  I then finished off my card sentiment with one of my favorite die and matching stamp sets by Simon Says Stamp.

I hope I've inspired you to experiment and try your own twists on the rainbow theme!  I would love to see what you come up with!  Share your creations with me at my facebook page found HERE.  :)
