I'll be creating 3 fun rainbow cards.

20210517 125458 1 1

I started by cutting the dies from Color Bands Die Set from white cardstock. After cutting the whole 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece, I ended up with 8 of each of the 4 dies to create 8 rainbows. I then went ahead and added color to each die cut using ink and blending tools. For the largest band I used Cotton Candy and Pink Pearl Inks, the 2nd band was colored using Sunkissed and Buttercream Inks, for the 3rd band I used Sweet Leaf and Mountain Mist Inks and the smallest on was colored with Dew Drops and Wisteria Inks.

Once these were colored I then went ahead and added these into place onto 3 separate cards. My plan at the start was to create 1 all over background, but as I had so many die cuts I decided to create more as I didn't want to waste them. I just love how each card turned out!

For the sentiments I used Sisters Of The Heart Stamp Set.

This is one of my favorite releases! (I think I say that every release). But I do love this one because I am always needed gender neutral cards at the ready for women or men, and for so many occasions, of which these products will work. PLUS these are so much fun!!! The many designers have shown that and have given so much inspiration. My birthday is coming up, and I hope to receive gift card(s) so I can purchase my favorites! Thank you Altenew for the amazing creativeness this release!
