Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop!

Welcome to a new Saturday Blog Hop with my teammates from Create with Connie & Mary. Today our theme for the hop is "Somewhere Over The Rainbow". I immediately thought of my Fringe Scissors and layer upon layer of rainbow colors:

Each strip measures 1" x 4-1/4" and I used Perfect Plum, Pacific Point, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango and Real Red Cardstocks. Once I had all the strips fringed, I glued the bottom color first and then layered them by overlapping about 1/4" on top of each other. The very top is a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper cut with the border die from the Cutie Pie Thinlits Dies. I then stamped a border at the top from the Butterfly Basics stamp set in Perfect Plum Ink.

For the other layers I used the branch die from the Flourish Thinlits Dies with the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and the sentiment is from the Starburst Saying stamp set. I stamped using Perfect Plum Ink on Whisper White Cardstock and cut the shape using the 1-1/2" Circle Punch.

Card Supplies:
  • Stamps: Starburst Sayings
  • Inks: Perfect Plum
  • Cardstock: Whisper White, Perfect Plum, Pacific Point, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Real Red, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper
  • Tools:  Fringe Scissors, Stampin' Dimensionals, Flourish Thinlits Dies, 1-1/2" Circle Punch, Cutie Pie Thinlits Dies
