It’s Valentine’s Day, which is the 14th, which means release day from Picket Fence Studios! This is one out of three blog posts here today, my apologies for bombarding you but sometimes such is life. Can you relate? Days go by without anything much happening and then all of a sudden it is like rush hour, clocks changing and you overslept all in one go.
For these card I have gone slightly rainbow crazy. I know.. not like me at all, right? *snickers to myself*
I started out by cutting strips out of lots of coloured card stock from Lawn Fawn. The colours I have used are Cilantro, Mermaid, Peacock, Moonstone, Blue Jay, Sugarplum, Raspberry, Pencil Eraser, Fake Tan, Sunflower and Sticky Note. If you want to get a rainbow look without having to buy loads of packs of coloured card stock, you can pick up a Rainbow Pack where you get one sheet of each colour.
With all the strips ready, I added adhesive to card bases and puzzled and puzzled and puzzled. It got a bit additive actually and I ended up with loads of fun backgrounds!
On the two above I used the Happy Birthday sentiment from Fancy Sentiments. Easy and straight to the point! Plus, look at that font. Gorgeous, isn’t it? The top one has the sentiment heat embossed on vellum and the bottom one it’s stamped directly on it. Make sure you use a stamping tool when you do it this way though as it doesn’t always stamp very well on the background.
If you are on the market for some fun sentiments you should definitely look at the Favorite Notifications stamp set. It’s got something for everyone in your life.
If you just want to play with the card stock and make loads of backgrounds for simple Hello cards, like I did here, do it! It’s very relaxing and you can do so many different ones.
On this one I did a little bit of ombré Copic colouring on white card stock before cutting out the shadow bit of the Hello, before layering it up with white.
This Hello is layered with dark grey and black card stock. I can’t decide which one I like better…
This masculine one I did without the shadow part of the Hello. The dark blue strips frames it pretty nicely.
This one is done with all the Hello’s cut out of the coloured card stock, directly on a white card base.
The thing I love about coloured card stock is that it is so easy to make really colourful cards with very little stamping and colouring!
