Your Creative Connection 105: A Rainbow for You

600 pixels

Hello friends. Today it's time for a virtual tour around the globs to visit the blogs of my international crafty Stampin' Up! friends for Your Creative Connection #105. Today's theme is 'A Rainbow for you' and what perfect timing. With nearly all of us in social isolation for Covid-19, I think sending rainbows is the perfect way to bring joy to other people if you are able to use the postal service in your area.

I took the theme very literally, and made up some rainbow cards using Stampin' Up! layering circles dies.

I used  Stampin' Up! note cards and envelopes as the base for my card, and then created a light pool party wash on the card front using my aquapainter and Pool Party ink refill (diluted in an ink mixing tray). My rainbow was made by cutting the 6 biggest circles from the Layering Circles dies, and using the circle 2 sizes down in the centre. This gave me 6 outline circles and I used half of these for each card, My colours from the outside are Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point, Granny Apple Green and Gorgeous Grape.

For my greeting, I have used the Stampin' Up! Well Written dies to cut out the word 'happy', and the coordinating Well Said stamp set for the other words . I stamped the greeting 'Sending Healing Thoughts Your Way' and then cut it up to just use the words 'sending; and 'your way'.
