Hello friends! Rainbows make this girl happy. Like super happy. I created a stenciled rainbow background today with a rainbow greeting (which is the star of the show for this card) with the new Creativity Is Contagious Stamp Set.
Bristol Smooth Cardstock was trimmed to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and inked with Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers, and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Inks through the Simon Says Stamp Zig Zag Stencil. Once inked, I dried the ink with a heat tool to dry the background quickly.
The large greeting from the Creativity Is Contagious Stamp Set was stamped with the same Distress Oxide Ink colors for a rainbow effect over the rainbow background. The only color that didn't show up well was Squeezed Lemonade so I simply eliminated it by covering it up with other colors. Once the rainbow was easy to read, I cleaned the stamp and inked the greeting again with clear embossing ink and heat set the rainbow with clear embossing powder.
I used the Dotted Detail Frame Die to die cut a thin border from the background and die cut it again from smooth white cardstock. The three pieces were then inlaid onto a top fold card as shown.
An additional greeting from the Creativity Is Contagious Stamp Set was stamped on smooth white cardstock using black ink, trimmed into a thin strip, and adhered to the card with foam adhesive.
