Hello readers! Today I am over on the Joy Clair Designs blog sharing some fun rainbow colored cards using both the Spring Rose and Funny Times digital stamp sets from Joy Clair Designs. I love using rainbow colors on my cards, because I think it just makes them extra cheerful and uplifting no matter what images are used.
For this first A2 sized card, I used a piece of 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock for my base. I cut a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of black cardstock for the first mat which I adhered directly to the card base. I placed a 2" x 5 1/4" piece of black and gold foiled patterned paper down the left side of the card. I enlarged the hot air balloon to about 60% from the Funny Times digital stamp set and printed it onto Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I colored the image with Copic markers and fussy cut the image out. I adhered the hot air balloon to the card using 3M foam adhesive. I also printed the sentiment onto white cardstock and die cut it using a 3" stitched oval circle. I adhered the sentiment to the balloon using Tombow adhesive. Lastly, I added a coat of Clear Wink of Stella to the balloon for added sparkle.
For this second A2 sized card, I used the same card base of 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I heat embossed a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of black cardstock with a grunge background stamp and adhered it directly to the card base. I printed one of the roses from the beautiful Spring Rose digital stamp set and enlarged it 50%. I colored the image with Copic markers in rainbow colors and adhered it to the center of the card using 3M foam adhesive. I printed out the sentiment on white cardstock and used a decorative punch to punch out the shape. I placed a little white twine on the center of the rose and the sentiment on top of the twine. I added a coat of Clear Wink of Stella to the rose for added sparkle.
I hope you have enjoyed these cards. You can see more of my designs on Instagram, Facebook and on my YouTube channel. Thank you for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
