Rainbow Stamping + On-the-Edge Die Cutting
Hello. Today’s video shares how to do rainbow stamping along with on-the-edge die cutting. I combined these techniques to create a smooth, one layer card.

I’ll be honest – these techniques are really hard to describe in words, so I recommend checking out the video. I also show a few ways to get the look of rainbow stamping, depending on what tools you have.
The Reverse Confetti Butterfly Dreams stamp set was perfect for these technique. I stamped the butterflies in several bold inks from Ranger… using masking to create the rainbow.
To allow the butterfly to hang off the top of the card but still remain one-layer, I did a simple partial die cutting trick with the coordinating die.
So I must confess… I love the look of splatters on backgrounds but I have control issues. 🙂 Instead, I used the Lots of Dots stamp set from Simon Says Stamp to add tiny dots to my background. A lot of stamp sets include smaller images that would be perfect for this.
Don’t worry if you don’t have the exact tools that I used. There are other ways to achieve the same look. Instead of using a MISTI (my favorite!), you could a stamp positioner or even tape two wood mounted stamps together to create a corner you can stamp into. You can also use other products to do the rainbow stamping too. Hero Arts has Ombre ink pads and Kaleidacolor offers multi color ink pads that would make this step a lot faster.
I hope you give these techniques a try. It works great with any stamps and coordinating dies!
