by Lydia Evans

Video Hop 1280x720 1

Hello there, everyone! Happy Friday! Lydia here. Today, I'll be sharing 2 card projects with bright and vibrant rainbow ink blending.

I'm also kicking off today's Summer Sunshine Stamps, Dies, Stencils, and Embossing Folders Collection Video Hop and Giveaway! There are a ton of giveaway prizes waiting for you, so make sure you visit each video in this hop and leave the designers plenty of love!

Before we get started, let's take a quick look at the NEW Summer Sunshine Collection!


We hope you are feeling the love for this release as much as we are! These products honor summertime (our favorite season!) with stunning blooms, fruit, foliage, and a beach scene! Of course, we didn't forget about the coordinating dies and simple coloring stencils to accompany the summer stamps. We can't wait to see what you create!

Bright and Vibrant Rainbow Ink Blending

Bright and Vibrant Rainbow Ink BlendingI started by stamping the large image from Captivating Blooms Stamp Set onto a piece of Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock using Obsidian Ink and heat set using Crystal Clear Embossing Powder.

I then used the coordinating simple coloring stencils to color the image using ink blending. I used Pink Diamond, Sunray, and Mountain Mist Inks through stencils 1 and 4, Pinkalicious, Chamomile, and Snapdragon Inks for stencil 2, and Rubellite, Snapdragon, and Lagoon Inks for stencil 3.

I just love, love, love how this rainbow ink blending comes out!

Bright and Vibrant Rainbow Ink BlendingThe sentiment is from Monstera & Quotes Stamp Set. Some Jet Black Enamel Dots finished these simple and vibrant cards off perfectly.
