AL handmade - Handmade Rainbows

Hello crafty friends! Today I’m back with a couple of new projects that I shared over on the Spellbinders blog, featuring the awesome Handmade Collection by Stephanie Low.
I really love this new collection, you can easily combine its gorgeous images for endless creative possibilities. Plus, every single stamp set is so fun to color!

Pretty Handmade Card

My first project shows how to use coordinating dies to create windows for stamped images.
Rainbow cards make me happy. I had so much fun creating this card! :)

I started working on this card by die-cutting four windows out of a white cardstock panel, using the feather shaped die from the One of a Kind Handmade set.
Then, I used the die-cut panel as a guide to align my rubber stamp correctly before stamping the images on my card base. I inked each one of the feathers with two analogous colors using some of my favorite Distress inks: Abandoned Coral, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass and Milled Lavender.

Next, I added some splatters on my die-cut panel, matching the colors of the stamped images, and foam mounted it on my card base.

The sentiment is from the Pretty Handmade set. I stamped it on kraft cardstock using Memento Rich Cocoa dye ink, used the coordinating die to cut it out and foam mounted it onto my card.

To finish, I added some sparkling clear sequins to embellish my card.

Vintage Buttons Card

My second card is a clean and colorful example of how to create a dimensional rainbow using die cuts.

I stamped the buttons from the Vintage Buttons Handmade set several times in different colors. I used Abandoned Coral, Wild Honey, Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, Milled Lavender Distress Oxide inks. Then, I die-cut each one of them using their coordinating dies.

Next, I arranged all my die cut buttons – creating a colorful rainbow – and mounted them onto my card base. I thought it would be fun to add some dimension, so I pop some die cuts up using foam.

I heat embossed the sentiment, from the Sew Handmade set, in gold on a strip of vellum and mounted it in the middle of my card.

Finally, I added a bit of Wink of Stella to a couple of buttons for shimmer and some sparkling clear sequins as embellishment!
