This week’s Global Design Project is a “rainbow” color challenge, and it’s always fun creating “rainbow” cards. I began by choosing six, rainbow colors of ink: Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight Granny Apple Green, Tahitian Tide, and Highland Heather.

Rainbows & Hearts


Next, I used Sponge Daubers with each color of ink, smoothing the color onto Basic White Cardstock, large enough to accommodate the heart die. The heart is a Radiating Stitches Die, an Online Exclusive, which is linked to my store in my Product List below. After cutting the hearts, I placed four hearts on Mini Dimensionals, and left two to be glued flat.


Once I decided the placement of the hearts, I stamped four rainbows, from the Just My Type Stamp Set, in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock, 5 1/4″ X 4″. I also stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set, and glued the layer to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. The sentiment, “I hope your day is filled with sunshine and rainbows,” is wonderful, isn’t it?


See how our designers used the rainbow colors, then create your own card, and hang it in our gallery.
