Hey everyone! It's Sunday afternoon already?? How is that even possible?? I am in kind of a weird mood so forgive my story for today. Who knows, maybe I will make you laugh, and in the process, make myself laugh too. I have been in a BAD MOOD all day! I don't even know why... Nothing is wrong, I am happy and blessed.... And crabby! My friends always say "you are never in a bad mood!" But just ask my husband! Hahaha. Maybe chalk it up to being an old gal who has raging hormones... I dunno. I think I need to just ride it out. Even Buddy ran and went to sleep in his tent bed!! So I thought, what would make me happy today? Things that make me happy definitely include spending time in the studio. So, I came in here and decided to make a card. What kind of card to cheer myself up? Rainbows and glitter? Yes, please! So I channeled Lisa Frank and made a whimsical and bright rainbow card. Maybe I can share some happiness with you too! I feel better already.
I started by die cutting the rainbow, heart and word dies from crisp Neenah cardstock. After I colored my rainbows I added glitter Stickles...Then after that I added glitter enamel dots! LOL. This is a very clean and simple card for me. No paper layers, no patterned paper, eeek. Just about gives me a heart attack to make a one layer card! (Are you laughing with me or at me yet?) Well...the thing is, making this card cheered me up! And now I'm sharing some happy, glittery, rainbow cheer with you too. Have a great week ahead! XOXO
To color my rainbow pieces I just used the ink pads and rubbed then over the little arches. Easy as pie!! I used some really pretty tropical colors. That new yellow ink pad is called Lemon Zing! Right now it's only available as part of the Masterpiece Box - but it will be out and sold separately soon! I looooove it! After the rainbow pieces were dry, I assembled them using foam tape on the back. I took some Unicorn White Spray Mist and speckled white on both the rainbow and the heart. The heart die is the same color ink as the largest arch of the rainbow (Teeny Bikini is the color)
I die cut the happy word and then covered it with Platinum Stickles. This is one of my favorite Stickles colors. This project went kind of disco on me!! One tip I have for drying little pieces like this quickly is to set them on top of your Ott Lite!! It gets really hot, and Stickles dry like a dream!
Thanks for stopping by today!!! I hope you're not in a bad mood! And, I hope you are getting in some creative time today! XOXO See you back here on Wednesday with another Guest Designer post for Color Throwdown!
