Full Bloom Rainbow

Hello friends!  I hope you’re having a great week so far!  I’m wondering if this cold weather has me feeling this way lately, but I’m seriously lacking in creativity and just have misplaced my MOJO lately!  If you’ve found it, please let me know! LOL!

In the meantime, I seriously needed to create a rainbow in my life and found that a young lady certainly was in need of a smile sent her way as well so I thought I would do just that:

I had received my Pink and Main Crafty Courtyard Card Kit and really loved the happy colors and pretty blooms in the stamp set and so I started out using the stencil with rainbow order inks for the background!

I’ve also used the same color of Distress Oxide inks to do the stamping on the tag and envelope as well.  I absolutely love the tag die set was inclued with the kit which I’ve used for the main focus of my card.  I always want to add just a bit of black to my rainbow colors, so I decided to white heat emboss the sentiment from the stamp set and then used one of the tag die elements to cut it out with and pop up over the bottom of the tag.

I’ve also used the ribbon and enamel dots included in the kit to finish it off.  (The floral sequins used for the photo prop were also included in the kit.  LOL!)

Here’s a closer look at the details in the tag.  For the black border around the tag, I just cut a piece down to size and then cut off the edges with my scissors to match up with the tag.  The scallop tag behind it was cut with the paper and die from the kit.  I used some circle punches to create the black re-enforcer and then I tied the ribbon together with some black twine from my own stash and topped the center with an enamel dot from the kit.

This card has now been sent along to a young lady that is currently in the hospital dealing with cancer treatments (teapotters from SCS) and really needs some cheerful happy colors, so I hope that this will help fill her day with some cheer.

Hoping that this card has also sent some feelings of cheer today your way as well!  Thanks so much for stopping in today friends and I’ll see you soon! 🙂

  3. Love your ombre rainbow – and the focal image is sure to bring a smile to the recipient. What a wonderful thing to do. I went and read about her treatment on SCS and spending 30 in her room must get old. Great card and I think you might have found your mojo.

  6. I was going to say I think my mojo and your mojo ran away together for the tropics, but this card proves me wrong! LOL This rainbow of color is just lovely and the tag is so pretty with the little bow and attached heart! I’m sure the person battling cancer will find inspiration from this wonderful card!
