Rainbow Shaker

I tried a rainbow in a different way and added, instead of a pot of gold, a gold shaker with a rainbow inside.  I was having fun.  The rainbow is for the MFT Summer School Day 2 challengeand the shaker is for the Daring Cardmakers Challenge.

It does look better in real life, but it was fun.  Even though I had all my pieces laid out and the went completely around my rectangle, when it came to gluing them in, I got off.  Oh well, it left room for my sentiment.  Just a hint: stamping before putting your shaker on top (or anything large) works much better.

Thanks for spending some of your valuable time with me!



MFT has this fun rainbow die that I decided to use both directions (yes, I know rainbows don’t reverse, but I had fun with it).  It was perfect for this week’s Wednesday Sketch Challenge, too.

As one of the sentiments in the rainbow set really stood out to me, I wanted to use it on the inside.

Because of what it says, I had to do it in rainbow colors.

I had cut out enough “thanks” to make a rainbow, which meant I got 6 rainbow “thanks”.  The idea was to make 2 more cards after I did last week’s MFT sketch with 2 of them.  However, I looked at this week’s sketch challenge and figured I could use my leftovers and have it work perfectly.  It did.  I got glue all over my fingers, as I didn’t first put all my different card stocks on stick paper, but, it worked.

Used a magnetic ruler to hold the card base in place to glue the letters on straight, which worked pretty well.  No, it’s not perfect, but I’m human.

Rainbow Color Challenge

As it is World Card Making Day, MFT had 3 challenges they posted today.  This is for their rainbow color challenge.

This wasn’t my first attempt, but I wasn’t liking that attempt, so did this one.  I will go back and play with attempt #1, as I’ve thought of a couple of things that might help it.


10-6-18 MFT Rainbow

Used MFT’s Magical Dragons set for this, as well as their Marbled Background stamp, as well.  All of the ink used on this is Distress ink.  The copper paper is a shimmer sheet and there is a bit of gold shimmer sheet behind the colorful panel, as well.

I embossed the sentiment on an organza ribbon.  Wasn’t sure if that would work, as I figured the ribbon would melt, but just kept the heat gun away from it and moving a lot and it actually worked.  Did put a solid green ribbon behind, so you could actually read it.

Thanks for spending a bit more time with me today!


Had fun with a stencil and rainbow colors.

5-6-18 STV SSS Rainbow

Used the Altenew Cube Builder Stencil; Gina K inks in: cherry red, sweet mango, wild dandelion, jellybean green, powder blue, wild lilac; the Gina K “Your Own Kind of Beautiful” stamp and die set; a gold Stardust pen; PrismaColor pencils: 912 Apple Green, 908 Dark Green, 916 Canary Yellow; and some adhesive.  Also used a Spellbinders labels die, but not sure which one.

Used this for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Blog Monday Challenge, as well as this month’s StampTV challenge.

Hope it gives you a chuckle.  Thanks for spending some time with me today.
