Rainbows Blog Hop!

I am thrilled to be a part of today's Simon Says Stamp Blog Hop, celebrating their newest release, Rainbows!  Rainbows hold a special place in my heart, so celebrating this release will go on long after this hop.  For me, this is the start of a month long party of rainbows!  I am starting the party by using the wonderful new Repeating Rainbows Cling stamp having made a couple cards with lots of rainbows... 
The first card uses the whole stamp, the second card, a happy accident, using the leftover strip from what was cut off from the first card!  
This card was simply made, using twenty different color markers...and some careful coloring.  I put a 8 1/2"x5 1/2" piece of cardstock in my MISTI and stamped with gray ink.  I then colored all the rainbows...making sure I stayed in the lines as best I could, so my rainbows were as crisp as possible.  I took my heat gun over the rainbows after I finished coloring, and then put the piece back in my MISTI.  I used my magic embossing bag to prevent static, and stamped the rainbows again, this time with versamark and then embossed with white embossing powder.  I cut it down, added my favorite sentiment right now, from  CZ Design's You are Loved stamp/die set, stamped, die cut and layered.  Here's a close up...
The second one, simply the  leftovers from the first...
I added a silver strip behind the rainbows for a "little fancy" and a sentiment from the Simon XL Greetings  2.  Here's a close up...
I love getting two cards from one project!  These were such fun, and the rainbows truly just make me so happy!!  The fun is just beginning for you!

  44. I am a rainbow nut but when I first saw the repeating rainbow stamp I didn't have the "vision" that you did to color each of the rainbows in rainbow fashion. Just STUNNING!!! I've never stamped, colored, and then embossed....the outcome is AMAZING so am surely going to give this technique a try. Thank you so much for the inspiration and I guess I'll be placing another SSStamp order again soon.
