Just Add Ink #229 – Rainbows

By | September 1, 2014

Happy Labor Day, if you have the day off from work, hope you are enjoying it with family or friends.  It’s humid and rainy here again today, not exactly cookout weather. We ended up visiting with friends last night, just plan on taking it easy today and making a few cards.

While in the pool Saturday, thought about the card I would make for this weeks Just-Add-Ink # 229 challenge, something “Bright, Fun & Happy – – “Rainbows”.  Remember to take time to visit their blog, direct link by clicking the image below, for projects from their design team and other crafters just like me.  Last week my Cascading Card was picked for Honorable Mention, pretty exciting if you ask me!

I knew I wanted a clean – simple card and the Four Feathers Stamp Set and ROYGBIV popped into my head.


Here is the card I designed, using  ROYGBIV (red-orange-yellow-green-blue-indigo-violet).  Those are such boring color names, Real Red, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi, Tempting Turquoise, Rich Razzleberry and Wisteria Wonder are much more exciting names!  I used a circle template, two circle framelits cut together to create a frame to adhere the feathers on.  The features were stamped  using Four Feathers Stamp set with matching ink and die cut with the Feather Framelits.  The wreath is popped up with dimensionals on a Whisper White mat, which is clear embossing with the Hardwood background stamp for texture.  Whisper White Organza Ribbon finishes the card.

    What a great idea! The rainbow of feathers looks fantastic! I’d love to be a fly on the wall while the colour names are being brainstormed at Stampin’ Up! Thanks for playing along with us this week at Just Add Ink.

    What a fabulous fun idea Karen and it looks just fabulous too! Love the idea of the colours going round and the contrast to the subtle hardwood background. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

    Karen, this is gorgeous! I love that you clear-embossed the Hardwood stamp to add subtle background detail to the bold, bright feature. I also love that you were planning your card while you were in the pool! Inspiration strikes at all sorts of times, doesn’t it? Great take on our challenge; thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week.
