Rainbow bright

Hello, stampers.

I have two simple cards… cards that take my back to my childhood. I was obsessed with rainbows as a kid. Especially rainbow stickers. Ha.

So today I decided to make two rainbow-y cards for the fun of it. Well, honestly, I was just dying to use THIS heart border die from Memory Box. I lovey it.

I cut this from white Neenah cardstock. This die cuts the outline (which I colored black) and the inside hearts (which I colored with my Copics). After coloring, I pieced it back together like a puzzle. So cool. Would have looked better with some Glossy Accents on the black, but I was in a hurry…

Another fast one up next. I die cut the border from watercolor paper. (The only reason I used watercolor paper was because it was what was sitting in front of face. Ha.) Before I took apart all the pieces, I scribbled over it with my Copics, blending quickly from color to color. I then took out the center and just adhered the outline border to a white card. And those cute colored pearls? Doodlebug.

Here is a closer look at that die. Lovely, eh? Such intricate cutting. Oh, and here is another must-have border die that makes the cutest little hearts…


Great dies.

And the stamps are from two sets that I am enjoying lately. One is the new Simply Said set from Paper Smooches. I like their greetings because they just seem to fit so well on cards. The other is THIS sunshine set from Ali Edwards and Technique Tuesday. Great messages on there.
