Rainbow Birthday Wishes Card (RCC #9)

Hello everyone! :o)

Today I want to share with you this Rainbow Birthday Wishes Card.

On this card I went with a die cut inlay technique. I love puzzles and this technique is super fun to me. :o) You can find amazing video tutorials and awesome ideas on this technique on Jennifer's McGuire blog (here and here)

How I made my card...

For my card I used a sentiment stamp from a Jane's Doodles 'Birthday Wishes' stamp set and heart die cuts form Jane's Doodles 'Stinks' dies set.


I die cut hearts in a white cardstock paper panel and stamped a sentiment in black on the panel. I kept white die cut hearts for some future project.

Then I blended various Distress Ink colors on white cardstock paper pieces and die cut one heart from each color.

I glued the panel on a same size white top folded card base and inserted die cut hearts into openings. 

As a finishing touch, I coated hearts with Clear Wink of Stella. :o)

Card dimensions: 83 mm x 114 mm (3 1/4" x 4 1/2")

Celebrating 30 days of Pisces 2018 - Short Review

Hello everyone! :o)

Spring arrived yesterday and my personal challenge Celebrating 30 Days of Pisces 2018 ended.

My challenge this year was to make 20 (or more) cards featuring rainbow colors in Pisces period. I managed to complete 19 cards.

I was working on 20th card, going totally out of my comfort zone. Although I think is very good to go out of comfort zone, it's better to give up if you don't like it. So I did with my card. :o)

Although I didn't reach number 20 as I planned, I'm not disappointed at all, neither I find this failure. I practiced, incorporated rainbow colors in my projects in various ways, created 19 cards that I like a lot and had a lot of fun. :o)

Due to a terribly bad weather here, I wasn't able to take photos of my rainbow colored cards for more than a week, neither to share them here on my blog. Last card I shared was 8th card.

Two days ago I caught a short sunny period and took photos of all cards I made until then. Due to my busy working schedule these days, I'll need some time to share all my cards here on my blog. Well, Spring Break is just a week away, so if not earlier, I'll share them then. :o)

Thank you for visiting and your kind feedback. Enjoy and smile! :o)


P.S There still some time left to enter my Birthday Giveaway. :o)
