I have a couple of projects to share with you today. First up is a project featuring the larger, arc rainbow from the die set as well as our large cloud die.
I started with a kraft base and stamped the *thank you* sentiment from the Rainbows & Clouds stamp set in multi-colors and added in my rainbow and popped up the cloud on a foam square. I added in the ribbon and embellishment, rounded the corners and called it done!
I just love how easy it is to create a cute card having a great focal point like the rainbow!
This next card shows the versatility of this die set! I LOVE using die cuts in creative ways! You can make these fun little flowers by bending the bows of the rainbow into a petal shape and gluing them together with glue dots. Here I used buttons as the flower's centers.
I started again with a kraft base and stitched a border on it using my sewing machine. I stamped some fun leaves from a PTI set that I have which I thought coordinated nicely with my whimsical flowers. I added in the purple ribbon and embellishment as well as an eyelet border in this fun, rope textured paper and I used the *My Friend* sentiment from the set.
I hope these cards inspire you to create with this fun set!
If this is your first time stopping by or reading about Rainbows & Clouds here are the die and stamp images...
The die set contains 2 dies which each cut 2 unique shapes: 2 rainbows and 2 clouds. The stamp set contains 20 sentiments in a fun handwriting font which can be mixed and matched to make all different saying. I can't tell you how much I love having this set in my collection. These clouds with the perforated detail are just so super cute!
