DT Teresa - Rainbows


Our theme for the month of October is Rainbows! 

This card uses Neenah Classic Crest 110# Smooth Solar White Cardstock for the base which is cut with a paper trimmer at 4 1/4" x 11" and scored with a teflon bone folder at 5 1/2" to make a top folding card of 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".

I chose to use Distress Oxide Inks to lay down my rainbow colours as they blend beautifully. This was important as currently the Oxide range does not yet have an indigo colour, but by blending the colours together, indigo sprang to life!

Using small Tsukineko ink daubers, I blended the Distress Oxide colours in rainbow order - Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet onto Neenah Classic Crest 80# Smooth Solar White Cardstock.

I diecut the balloon, string and tassels from my rainbow cardstock using the Happy Balloons dies from Concord & 9th with a Sizzix Bigshot machine, while the balloon was cut once again, as was the banner and heart from black cardstock. I cut a slither of the rainbow cardstock and two from black and placed them in position onto the cardbase.

I then placed all other elements onto the card using Ranger Multi Medium Matte and punched some small dots to look like confetti and adhered them also.

I paper pieced the balloon and adhered it to the card, adding Ranger Glossy Accents to the heart for shine. I stamped the sentiment from Concord & 9th Happy Balloons Stamp Set and embossed it using Versamark Ink and Ranger Embossing Powder, White after swiping the cardstock with EK Tools Powder Tool to prep the surface.

I placed the banner onto the card with some 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape across the middle and Ranger Multi Medium Matte on the ends and after brushing some Zig Wink of Stella onto the balloon, the card was complete.

Thankyou for following along with me today. If you cannot find the items I have used (listed below) in the Auzz Trinklets and Crafts store, be sure to drop Neha a message via email or Facebook and she will do what she can to order the product in for you.
