I’m excited to be a part of Kelly’s Social Stamping Blog Host this weekend. Our theme this week is Rainbow’s which have become the symbol of connectedness during these times of isolation.
A big thank you to Kelly for bringing so many stamping friends together to share inspiration and to feel a bit more connected with others.
So first of all, I googled what the colours of a rainbow are. Yes, I know I should know but I needed to be sure!! I have just received the Ornate Garden Suite which is an early release from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue and I couldn’t wait to play with the Ornate Style stamp set and the large flower image.
I decided to start with a black card base to make the rainbow colours stand out. I then used the largest border die from the Ornate Layers dies to cut out another base. I stamped the floral image in Memento black and then grabbed out blends in the rainbow colours. I used Lovely Lipstick, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Call me Clover, Balmy Blue and Blackberry Bliss. I added Wink of Stella over the flowers for some sparkle.
I stamped the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks set in Highland Heather (thought I had used the HH blend!!) and cut out using the Stitched Rectangle dies. I added a piece of Real Red ruched ribbon as a banner and popped the sentiment on that.
I even did a panel for the inside. I coloured a piece of cardstock using the blends and then cut out with a die from the Ornate Layers dies.
Isn’t that pretty!! Rainbows are just so bright and cheerful, aren’t they!
Next up is the lovely Liz.
