Happy Friday!!! I hope this beautiful day finds you in good health and high spirits! I am excited because both kids had activities all day with friends for the first time this summer and I can craft to my heart's content without interruptions or feelings of guilt. ;)
I feel like I've been a wee bit absent from my blog this summer. I've been working on a big project behind the scenes that I can't wait to share, but that news will have to wait for another day. ;)
Today I thought I would gather up several random past cards I created that I don't think I ever got around to sharing (I'm embarrassed to admit how long ago I made some of these, but that's just how desperate I am). They all just happen to have a rainbow theme! I love rainbows... Don't you? Perhaps it's because I grew up in the 80's, but I think it has more to do with my love for bright colors. The more the merrier, right?
My first card uses Papertrey Ink's Wonderful Words Hello Stamp set. I made this for a challenge to use up scraps of ribbon and I thought a bunch of tabs as a border would be fun. This a great way to use up little pieces that are too small to make a good bow. It reminds me of one of those baby toys. ;)
My second card uses a technique I learned in grade school where you color an image with crayons and then go over it a second time with the same color in watercolors. Aside from the stamps & hillside border dies everything else was using just good ol' Crayola products. I think it's fun to create with basic supplies every once in awhile to feel like a kid again and remind ourselves that we don't always need expensive supplies to make something beautiful.
My last card is absolutely ancient, but it featured a rainbow so it fit my theme of the day. ;) I created this using Papertrey Ink's chevron stripes border die along with some basics by Pebbles Inc.
I hope if your day wasn't already feeling sunny that I've managed to spread a little sunshine your way. Thank you to all those leaving me nice comments. Your sweet feedback always makes me feel so good! :)
