Hello and welcome back to another Stampin' Up! Artisan Design team blog hop. This edition we are featuring the playful Sunshine & Rainbows stamp set and coordinating dies. I'm excited to share two bright and beautiful cards with you today.
First off, the products used on my cards are currently available in the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog and annual catalog. I created these cards before Stampin' Up! announced their retired products list. So, these cards DO feature a few items that will be going away May 31st (specifically colors: Sweet Sugarplum & Peekaboo Peach). If you love these products as much as I do grab these items now, while supplies last.
Now onto the cards. I really like the idea of something special at the end of a rainbow ... how about a bouquet of flowers? Or perhaps a cloud of iridescent sequins? Options are endless and oh so pretty. Both of these cards take a fun approach to treasure at the end of a rainbow.
The flowers are the end of this rainbow were created using the Blossom Builder Punch. Each flower has been punched in the same color as the corresponding rainbow stripe. I added a little pearl accents to the center of each of these flowers and stained these pearls with a similar matching Stampin' Blend marker. This is a fun little detail and adds a special touch.
Here is a fun approach for a shaker card. Make that shaker work for you inside and out! This shaker window full of sequins can be seen from the front of the card and then once opened, seen from the inside as well. The natural motion of opening the card also allows the sequins to fall, creating a nice WOW once the card is opened.
Creating a matching window for the inside of the shaker is easy to do by flipping your paper over once die cut to match up with the front.
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed these projects. I am super excited to see what the other Artisan designers have in store. I am ready to be inspired! Next up is the super talented Connie Collins.
