Hey there, crafty friends! I am sharing a few fun items from Scrapbook.com today! I had fun playing with some of their stamps, stencils, and hybrid inks to create a pair of rainbow cards. These inks blend together well, and for the rainbow background card, I used just three colors blended together to achieve the rainbow gradient. I’ll show you how!

Watch the Creative Process

Ink Blending the Rainbow

Like I mentioned at the beginning of this post, I used a few colors on ink to achieve a rainbow gradient. For my first card, I ink blended over the MOD CIRCLES STENCIL using Scrapbook.com’s Hybrid Inks. I used those same inks to ink blend the rainbow background on my second card. I mostly used CANDY SHOP PINK, RUBBER DUCKIE, and SKY BLUE, but I also threw in some CARDINAL RED and PINK FLAMINGO onto my stenciled background. These inks blend quite easily, and leave a vibrant color.

Stamping the Sentiments

I used the stamp sets, BOLD CAPS SOLID, VINTAGE TYPE LOWER, and WORDFETTI BEST DAY EVER, to stamp out some creative sentiments on these rainbow cards. I used the Bold Caps to stamp the word, SMILE, using the hybrid inks again. I tapped a little of each color of ink over the letters and stamped them out with my MISTI. This created a colorful gradient on my sentiment, as well. I then stamped the supporting sentiment underneath onto some black cardstock and enbossed in white. Then, I popped up the sentiment panel over the stenciled panel with some 2″ wide foam adhesive from Scrapbook.com!

For the second card, I stamped the word, SMILE, again using the Vintage Type Lower set. I used black hybrid ink for this, so that it would pop against the colorful background. I stamped out a few more sentiments from the Wordfetti set on black cardstock strips and again embossed in white. Added a few die cut hearts and it was done!

Add it to a Card Base

After my card fronts were done, I added them to my card base. I used the VERTICAL SCORED CARD BASES from Scrapbook.com. I love having these pre-cut and scored bases in my craft room. They are so handy to grab and mount my card front to! Takes one more step out of prepping my cardstock, which I love.
