Challenge Reminder: Lattice Rainbow
by Kim Singdahlsen

This month's challenge is Sending Rainbows.

Apr 2021

My rainbow is a rainbow of color in all the little squares of the Lattice Plate.  It was fun and easy to do and created a fabulous background for the bold "Hugs"!

I used a variety of the new cardstock from Memory Box.  I didn't want to waste any. I figured I would use more than three squares of each color so I cut a small strip then just cut a small portion of the die.

I cut the Lattice Plate in white then adhered it to my card base.  Then I just enjoyed piecing together my rainbow.  

The Luscious Script Hugs seemed bold enough to hold its own with all of the color.  After I cut and placed that, I wanted a way to highlight it.  I used Three Intricate Cut Butterflies in the same rainbow colors.  I wanted them to pop, so I actually ended up trading out the plain cardstock color beneath them for some coordinating polka dots.  It's subtle, but I like that there's a bit of a difference under the butterflies.

This was so much fun to create.  I've used the Lattice Plate in a previous card on this blog. On that card, I placed patterned paper behind it and it was a lovely look.  This card is quite different - the Lattice Plate is a good basic die that can be used in multiple ways.

I hope to see you playing along with the Sending Rainbows challenge.  As you can see, an actual rainbow isn't required - I've just used color for my rainbow!

You Made My Day
by Sue McRae


Happy Tuesday everyone! Sue here with a slimline card. It’s actually my first attempt at a slimline card and I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out. It’s a fun size to try different card design ideas. My slimline card measures 3.5” x 8.5” and can fit into a #10 business envelope.


I decided to make a colourful background with pieces of scrap cardstock that I cut into a variety of widths. I played around with the colours until I was happy, applied adhesive to the card base and adhered the strips.


Next I took the largest Whittle Circles Frame and die cut it 9 times from grey cardstock and adhered 3 frames together to create one thicker frame. I offset each layer when I adhered it because I like the dimension and depth it added to the frame.


Did you know there are some new animal friends that were added to the Whittle Family? I used three of the newest animals, the Squirrel, Sloth and Papa Hedgehog on my card. I die cut them from white cardstock and added them inside the wreaths. They are so cute!


I white heat embossed the sentiment from the Whittle Love stamp set and finished off with a few gems.


This card makes me happy with its rainbow background and adorable critters and the slimline size was perfect for this design.


Thanks for stopping by the blog today!







Rainbow Ghosts
by Sue McRae


Hello crafters, Sue here with a fun and colourful Halloween card featuring the cutie Squeaker Ghosts. Don’t worry, these ghosts are totally friendly!


The ghosts are really easy to ink up with Distress Inks if you take your blending tool and smoosh some ink blobs onto your cardstock. Then you an easily die cut out the ghosts from all the different colours.


After I die cut the ghosts I did add a little bit of shading around the edges with the same ink colour. I added a piece of black cardstock behind the eyes and a dot of white gel pen for the eyeballs.


I took the Adriana Wreath and die cut it from black glitter cardstock, adhered it to my card base and added my inky ghosts around the wreath in rainbow order, of course!


The Boo Outline was die cut from purple glitter cardstock and black cardstock and the sentiment was white heat embossed onto black cardstock.


I think this turned out to be a cute and cheery card, no spookiness here!


Thanks for stopping by the blog today and have a wonderful week!

Multiple flower cards
by Tina Wilstrup


Hello Poppy fans! Today I'm sharing a 5-for-1 card series using the Flora bloom solids.


First I taped the dies together with washi tape to make sure they'd cut exactly the same place with each cut.

Then I chose 5 colors of cardstock and cut the flowers.

I then adhered them to a cardbase in rainbow order.

I then stamped a flower image over the rainbow flower and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. For this I used 2 different Memory Box stamp sets.

I used a mix of vellum, black cardstock and glitter paper for the word dies and the shadows.

For all the cards I also stamped an accompanying sentiment.

So there you have it. 5 quick cards for different occasions that are nice to have in your stash.

See you next time
