Hello readers! If this is your first time here, welcome! I hope you find creativity and inspiration as you look around. If you are a regular reader or follower of mine, thank you for your continued support and I'm happy and grateful you return so often to visit. I do try and blog 5 days a week (and YES, I work full-time outside of this too!), so I hope that you will always find something new here.
Today I am sharing a colorful rainbow themed card using a new digital stamp set from 88 and Clear (formerly Richard Garay Designs and RG Avenue) called "Be Grateful". By pairing these bright colors with a black background it offers a stark contrast to make the colors really pop!
*A full list of supplies is located at the end of this post.
This A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. Using a piece of Black Taffy sugar stock, I die cut the background layer from a scalloped rectangle die. Because the "Be Grateful" stamp set I had is a digital stamp, I printed out the image on Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock and then colored it using Copic markers before fussy cutting the leaves out. I stamped the sentiment "Be Kind and Grateful" in Black Taffy ink on white cardstock and die cut it using a circle die. I adhered the circular sentiment to the left side of the card and then adhered the rainbow leaves to the right of the circle using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. To add a little sparkle, I die cut a few silver glitter leaves and tucked them in among the rainbow leaves. Lastly, I added a coat of Dazzling Pat for even more sparkle, because you can NEVER have enough sparkle! : )
May we all remember this simple message to be kind and grateful today and always. . .
