Happy birthday, Krista

Today is my workmate Krista's birthday - she loves pink, so I made this card for her.
I used the Heart Mandala stencil from Simon Says Stamp, inked in Distress Inks, then added a vellum heart, with a sentiment from Avery Elle stamped and embossed, and die cut from hot pink foil cardstock. I added some sequins to help hide the adhesive behind the vellum.

Rainbow hello

After making a card with a die cut rainbow earlier this week, I had a pile of colourful circles left over. Seeing as I couldn't arrange them into any more rainbows (don't even THINK of putting them in the wrong order!), I decided to try something different. I love making cards out of leftovers!!
I stamped a sentiment from Hero Arts "Hello stamp & cut" set.

Have a lovely rainbowy day

Inspired again by Laura Bassen to make this textured rainbow card for the Online Card Class:
I used Wendy Vecchi embossing paste coloured with Distress Inks (need to get some reinkers so I can get more intense colour with some of these), applied over the Heart Mandala stencil from Simon Says Stamp, with a die cut and stamped sentiment, both from Concord & 9th.

Rainbow tons of fun

More rainbow goodness today, with an elephant blowing bubbles :)
I scribbled my Zig markers onto my craft mat to use it as a palette, then painted circles starting from the bottom right, going up to the top left. I left room to stamp and colour the little elephant from MFT "Adorable Elephants", along with a fitting sentiment. I added some clear Wink of Stella to some of the bubbles as a finishing touch. 
 I'll be sharing this card at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday challenge - the theme this week is "for a child".

Rainbow thanks

If you're looking for my CAS-ual Fridays Challenge post, please click HERE!

I have another rainbow-y card for you today for the Online Card Class Rainbow Maker. I loved Laura Bassen's ink smooshing technique - I don't remember if I've ever used this exact technique before, but it's fun!
I used a die and matching stamp from Simon Says Stamp for the sentiment - I stacked 3 of the die cuts to give a bit more oomph to the word "thanks".

CAS-ual Fridays: CFC 180

Welcome to the new challenge  at CAS-ual Fridays!

I used the Starlequin background, white embossed onto watercolour cardstock and coloured with Zig markers and water, plus some Wink of Stella. I added a sentiment from Wall Flower, and then fussy cut around the edge of the Starlequin image before mounting the panel onto a pale bluee card base. I sponged the edge of the card with a little bit of Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, too. Some sequins were the finishing touch. 

Make sure you check out the CAS-ual Fridays challenge blog for more inspiration from the Girl Fridays, and join in on our challenge!

Rain or Shine

I was inspired by a card by Cathy Zielske in today's Online Card Class:
I used some nesting circle dies for the rainbow, and Stitched Cloud Border die from Lawn Fawn. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things. 
I thought it needed some shine, but I didn't want to add sequins, so I sprayed the rainbow with some Perfect Pearls Powder in water.

Rainbow shenanigans

I love this sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays - it makes me chuckle every time I see it! And I love a rainbow, so I'm thoroughly enjoying the latest Online Card Class. I didn't have much time between work and choir tonight, so it's a pretty simple card.
