PROUD OF YOU CARD - Stamping, Dry-embossing, Die-cutting or Fussy Cutting

Embossed Layer/ Card Base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Stamped Layer: 3 1/4 " x 5 1/4"



 


COLOR PALETTE

There are 17 beautiful colors in the Rainbow Splash line. You can pick out a rainbow of these dye-base ink pads to get you started if you want to give it a try, I would also recommend getting a matching reinker when you are ready for the colors that you choose.


For today's card I decided to use the rainbow of colors below:


 


RAINBOW SPLASH INKS

The full rainbow looks like this!


They are also available as set with their matching reinkers!!!



I swatched each of the inks onto white cardstock tags so could get to know the colors better. They are lush and GORGEOOUS!


 

RAINBOW SPLASH CARDSTOCK

If you like the pretty inks, you will be just as happy to know that Rainbow Splash offers matching/coordinating cardstock!




A rainbow pack is a great way for you to get the brighter colors!


 

RAINBOW SPLASH EMBOSSING FOLDERS

Embossing folders press designs and texture into paper and are a great shortcut to a fantastic card:


Note: I also inked the red and blue embossed papers after embossing to show what it looks like when you highlight the raised designs with ink.



The embossing folders will be included in the I WANT IT ALL collection!


 


RAINBOW SPLASH GEM STICKERS

A bling addict like me is super excited about the gems in the Rainbow Splash line. I think about these little darlings as jewelry for your cards!



 

PICTORIAL GUIDE

STAMPING

  • Trim white cardstock to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

  • Use a ruler to draw a straight line in pencil about 1/4" from the bottom of the cardstock

  • Using a stamping block or a MISTI, stamp the "Crayon" image from the Schoolhouse Messages Stamp Set in an even brown across the bottom of the white cardstock, starting with the Crimson Ink Pad and continuing with each color shown, finishing with the Sea

  • Stamp the "Checkmark" and "Proud of You" sentiment, also from the Schoolhouse Message set using the Black Ink Pad across the top




Trim stamped cardstock to 3 3/4" x 5" and attach foam dots to the back.



  • Stamp "A+" onto white cardstock in Grass Ink

  • If die-cutting, use the matching circle outline die from the Schoolhouse Messages Stamp Set to frame to stamp image and then run though a die-cutting machine. If cutting by hand, use a scissors to cut out the circle

  • Attach a foam dot to the back


 

DRY EMBOSSING

  • Trim Scarlet cardstock to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

  • Place inside the Twinkling Stars Embossing Folder

  • Run the embossing folder through a die-cutting machine


 

ASSEMBLY

  • Apply glue to the back side of the embossed cardstock and adhere to your folded card base

  • on the stamped layer, remove the backing from the foam dots/tape and adhere to the embossed layer

  • attach the "A+" cut-out


 

EMBELLISHING

  • Use a rule to guide your placement of the large Gem stickers in a row on the "Crayons"



 

Aren't these inks yummy?



The little green A+ looks so cute to me!



Oooh the bling makes this even more special!



I hope you will give this one a try. It's a fun card to make!


 

Is there such a thing as Rainbow Happy? If so, I am definitely that. I hope you will be too as you get to know the Rainbow Splash line!


Thank you for stopping by and hope that you will be back! Happy Crafting!
