Challenge Up Your Life with a RAINBOW!๐ŸŒˆ

Hello friends!  I don’t know about you, but I’m so happy to see the month of May starting!  That means the flowers will be coming out along with the warmer weather!  It’s also a great time of the year to see a rainbow perhaps?!


Today I’m super excited to be joining the “Challenge Up Your Life” challenge blog as a guest designer!  I had previously won a Top 3 and a future guest design spot from a past challenge I had entered, so I’ll be joining them as a guest for April, May and June challenges!  Today their new monthly challenge for May is “RAINBOW“.  Hope you can share your lovely creations with us this month!  (Check out the challenge blog for details and inspiration!)

Here’s my guest design creation for this month’s challenge:

Nothing better than to look up into the sky and see a rainbow!ย  What’s also fun is to be able to create your own and especially on a card to send to someone to brighten their day!ย  I’ve used a previous card kit from Taylored Expressions that contained these products:ย  Make a Rainbow Stencils, Over the Rainbow clear stamp set, Rainbow Cloud Duo dies, and Over the Rainbow Sentiments clear stamp set to create this card.ย  I ink blended the different colors through the rainbow stencil and stamped the orange dots over the rainbow as well as a few hearts in light blue ink. The sentiment was also stamped with black ink over top of the rainbow.ย  I then die cut the one cloud twice from white cardstock and ink blended some light blue around the edges of it and popped it up with foam tape at the ends of the rainbow.

Then the card front panel was ran through the die machine using the Taylored Expressions Diagonal Stitch Rectangle dies (Which actually doesn’t cut anything out, but creates the lines.)ย  I layered it onto a piece of black to make the rainbow pop a bit more and then attached it to an A2 sized top folding TE Pineapple card base.ย  I also topped it off with a couple of TE Bits & Pieces-Full of Heart sequins.ย 

I knew the minute I went to create for this challenge that my zippered pouch from Taylored Expressions that has the “A Rainbow of Possibilities” sticker over it was what I was going to grab!ย  All of my rainbow things are in it!ย  Makes it easy to grab when you know everything is in there!

I hope you’ll stop over at the challenge blog and join with us to share your rainbow too!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my card or been inspired!ย  Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you soon!

  10. Oh what a fun cheerful rainbow card – rainbows are “in”, and I really don’t have but a couple of rainbows in my collection. Love the clouds and the sentiment. Sometimes we just have to wait for that rainbow to appear. Great job.

  11. Radiantly charming rainbow greeting! By this point in the spring, I (we) have usually spied multiple rainbows, but despite many a rainy day, we’ve only seen one rather faint one so far this season. Hopefully, at least a few more will appear between now and the start of the next snowy season.
