Triple Rainbow

Greetings, all!  It's Lorraine (Created by Lorraine) sharing a set of cards I made using Paper Smooches' Rainbow die.  This post is filled with lots of photos, so please bear with me:)  Here's the first card, which uses a sentiment from the Paper Smooches Flap Happy stamp set:

I created the rainbow by running the die 6 times through my die-cut machine, in all the colors of the rainbow.  I used this little paper sample pack I picked up at a stationery convention a few years ago.  Those pieces of cardstock have really come in handy when all I need is a bit of color!

Then I arranged the pieces in rainbow order, then reverse rainbow, then random order:)  And, I have a bunch more pieces to make more rainbows for later projects.

Next, I ran die cut the rainbow on a card panel just so I could use the negative space as a guide when assembling the rainbow.  Then I masked off the area below the rainbow, blended some distress ink to look like sunshine, and stamped the sentiment.

I then adhered the card panel to the card base and added thin strips of foam adhesive in the negative space.

Next was the fun part: puzzle piecing the rainbow onto the foam adhesive.  Ah, life's simple pleasures!

I made a couple more cards using the same technique.  Here's the second, which uses a sentiment from the Paper Smooches I Heart Art stamp set...

And third...

All together now...

Thanks for coming by!  Wishing you happiness and rainbows!
