Happy Friday! It has been another HOT week with no rain, which we really need! Today I am sharing a bright card featuring two new stamp sets and two new dies from the Time For Tea Designs July release. This huge release is awesome and can be used to create so many awesome and unique cards!
To start I created a card base 3 1/2 wide by 8 1/2 inches tall and coloured the edges with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink. Next, I used the new Scalloped Slimline Die – this is such a great die for slimline cards! I used the Sunny Side up Again stencil and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink to create the sun and rays. I used Twisted Citron to create the grass and then added some water droplets on top of the sun and the grass.
Next, I die cut the Rainbow Mini Shaker Die five times from heavy card stock. For the base section, I left the inside rainbow areas in rather than taking them out. I coloured each rainbow section in using Distress Oxides and my Small Beautiful Blender Brushes – the small brushes made this process so much easier! I layered on the other die cut rainbow sections and glued them down using liquid glue. For the final section I used some acetate to create a clear barrier, before I glued it on the top I added in some glitz chunky glitter to each rainbow section. The Recollections glitter fits perfectly in each section.
I stamped the kitty with the umbrella and raindrops from the All Occasion Critters Clear Stamp Set and cut them out using the coordinating dies. I used my copics to colour in the kitty stamp. I also stamped, coloured and die cut the little bees from the set – they are so adorable.
I used the coordinating dies from the Storms Don’t Last Forever stamp set to cut out the clouds. I coloured the larger ones in with my grey copics to make them look dark and stormy. I stamped the sentiment ‘the greater the storm the brighter the rainbow’ and die cut it out.
Once everything was stamped and coloured I adhered all the elements to the card. I added some sparkle to the umbrella and raindrops with my wink of stella pen to complete the card.
