A Rainbow Connection?

Is it Monday already? 

As we say it every time Monday rolls around, right?

I have a couple more cards to share with you that were submitted for pub but didn't make the cut. These are ones I'm not overly happy with but wanted to take up the challenge which was to use rainbow colors. I did some blocking and stamping for each of these cards.

The first one I found a bunch of colored cardstock scraps and cut them into small squares. I think they ended up being 3/4". While it's not quite a card that I love, I do enjoy the simplicity yet colorful look of the card.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper, Core'dinations, Stamp Ink: Versafine, Tool: Stamps: Fiskars

For this next card I thought I would go with a gradient type rainbow color on a background stamp. It actually looks good in person. I could not, for the life of me, get a photo that really showcased the colors. Oh well!

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper, Flower, Bling: Kaisercraft, Stamp Ink: Colorbox, Clearsnap, Versafine, SEI, Tools: Stamps: (Sentiment) Fiskars, (Background) My Favorite Things

To ink up the stamp I dipped a cosmetic sponge into each color of ink (a separate sponge for each color) and then inked up the stamp. It was time consuming and the lighter colors didn't really stamp as well but it still gave a cool effect. 

I also have some fun news to leave you with! On October 1 there is going to be a HUGE blog hop with Operation Write Home. It's World Card Making Day and I couldn't imagine any place else to hang out! Making cards is my passion and I love what OWH does with those cards. So come back (or come back sooner) for the fun blog hop! There will be prizes and giveaways galore. :)

hugs,
