Dear Friend Release Blog Hop-Day 2

Hello again, crafty friends. I’m so excited to be joining THIS blog hop celebrating THIS new release….
 To create these cards, I stamped THIS background on each card. The background stamp is a pull apart background stamp. The stamp has perforations where you can pull it apart and isolate each ray of the rainbow.

For the first card….

I stamped the rays with traditional rainbow colors…

I added a stamped sentiment from THIS stamp set as well as some of THESE stars and a few pre printed sentiment strips.

For the second card…

I stamped the rays with sunset colors on a piece of pink cardstock…

I added THIS die cut sentiment as well as THIS umbrella image. I used a corner rounder to round all four corners on each card. I finished it off with a pre printed sentiment strip as well as a sprinkling of THESE embellishments.

I love the different looks you can get with this background. I plan to do another card using blue inks on blue cardstock to resemble water.

There is much more inspiration to see…

    All your creations were grand. I really REALLY love the purple and green Heart Quilt. That just knocked my socks off. I had to go looking for them then. Sheesh!
