TRCC #12: Regal Rainbow


Hi, all! Merry December! I cannot believe it's been about a year since I started The Rainbow Card Challenge! It has been such a fun ride, and I am so grateful for all of your support! This month's challenge is another RAINBOW MONTH! Take a peek at our fun inspiration...


Obviously, I HAD to go holiday with this one. ;) Okay, you DO NOT have to, but I wanted to! I had an idea to do a tree with rainbow "lights". So, I grabbed some Queen and Co sparkles, and got to work! Here's what I came up with...


I chose to use a patterned paper from The Stamps of Life that doubles as my sentiment. I used a Darice embossing folder for the snowy sky, glitter paper and a die from Poppy Stamps for the snow, and dies from Paper Sweeties to create the tree. Lots of sparkle and texture!


I totally love how this card turned out! The sparkle, shine, and texture is so fun and festive! I would love to hear your opinion about it in the comments below!


Please come and join us this month at The Rainbow Card Challenge! I LOVE seeing what everyone creates! If you're looking for even more inspiration, you should take a peek at what the other amazingly talented gals on the design team have created, too!

Washi Tape Series 05: Unicorn Scene


Hi, friends! Yep, it's fall, almost winter, here in the northern hemisphere! Yep! I'm sharing a bright rainbow card today! ;) I need to share more for my Washi Tape Series, so here is a card that uses one of the border washi tapes I have in my stash!


The stamps are from a set I purchased online a while ago, and now I can't find. I apologize! The clouds are die cut from blue glitter paper, and the faux stitched rectangle dies are from The Stamps of Life. Bling is from my stash, and the inks are also from The Stamps of Life.

Pretty Peonies


Hello, friends! I decided it's been FAR too long since I sat down and crafted, so I took a bit of time to do just that today! I used some products that I purchased a few months ago, but still hadn't used. Yep. These stamps were just WAITING to be inked! Here's my completed card...


I used the Large Peonies stamp set from Spellbinders for my florals. I colored the peonies in with colored pencil, then fussy cut them out and popped them up over the leaf images. I added a bit of bling from Darice and a sentiment from a set from Michael's. I added some shimmer with Sakura gel pen ink on the sentiment and in the center of the large flower (the yellow).


I honestly adore the way these blooms turned out! What do you think about them? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

TRCC #11: Magically Metallic


Hello, my friends! Happy November! I am getting so excited for the holiday season, and I hope you are experiencing joy and gratitude each day, as well! I am so grateful that I still am able to craft and share what I make each month for The Rainbow Card ChallengeThis month's challenge is all about the magic of METALLIC! Take a peek...


I definitely wanted to go Christmas/holiday with this challenge. I have been sorting through things at home (thank you, Marie Kondo!), and I came across my poinsettia dies from Spellbinders. That had never been opened or used. WHAT?! Yep, had them for years! So, it was time for them to take center stage. Here is my completed card...


I used gold glitter paper, gold/silver lattice glitter paper, gold metallic paper, and pearlized paper to continue the shine and splendor of this card. I wanted to add a sentiment, so I opted to use one from a set (maker unknown) that also had rarely been used, and heat embossed it! I then punched it out with a punch from Stampin' Up!.A few gold embellishments from Close to My Heart finished this off.


So, do you think that I was able to create an elegant, yet CAS creation? I think I did--and I am looking forward to giving this away! I would love to hear your thoughts, as well! Please do leave me some feedback in the comments below!

TRCC #10: Brazenly Black


Hi, friends! Happy October! I think I'm finally getting into a routine at work again, and loving every moment! I am so grateful that I still am able to craft and share what I make each month for The Rainbow Card ChallengeThis month's challenge is all about BLACK! Take a peek...


I TOTALLY went Halloween this month! I love the autumn/fall season, and Halloween is so much fun as a teacher! I grabbed some stamps from Great Impressions to create my card. Here is the completed creation...


I heat embossed the sentiment and simply stamped the mummy with black ink on white paper and cut him out. I used stitched circle dies from The Stamps of Life to create my circle motif, then added paper and sequins from my stash, along with a few rhinestones from Doodlebug Designs.


I am so pleased with this card! It came out better than what I had in my mind, which is always a plus! What do YOU think? I would LOVE to hear your opinion in the comments below!
