Rainbow swaps

I made these cards to swap at the Stampin’ Up! Baltimore Regional this past weekend.  I love the clean simple design of these.  I wish I had taken a picture of the full rainbow of cards but I did not – sigh.   Luckily I got a couple of photos though.

I made a whole rainbow of these and they would actually make a really fun set of cards.  Now I think I may need to make some more.  Let’s see I had Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Marina Mist and Rich Razzleberry.

And you know what I didn’t even save one for myself now that I think about it.  I will have to make some more of these.  Here is what I used to make each card –

  • card base in one of the rainbow colors – 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 and scored at 4-1/4″ – fold in half
  • Whisper White layer – 5-1/4 x 4 – stamp “hey there friend” in the lower right corner in the same color as the base.
  • Punch a Itty Bitty Flower using the Itty Bitty Punch pack in the same color.
  • Pierce a hole through the center of the flower and through the Whisper White layer next to the words and insert a mini silver brad.  Curl up the flower around the brad.
  • Add a strip of designer series paper from the Polka Dot Parade pack in the same color to the left side of the Whisper White layer.
  • Tie a piece of Whisper White Baker’s twine around and tie in a bow.
  • Glue the Whisper White layer to the card base.

Do you know where the stamp came from?  It is one of the stamps in the Paper Pumpkin Welcome kit – isn’t it great?  If you don’t have it and you want it then you need to join Paper Pumpkin – its easy click here to learn how – and you will get it in your first kit.  Our surprise April Kits are on the way – I hope it gets here this week before my Creative Retreat is over so I can show everyone that’s here the newest monthly kit!

Have a nice Spring day today!
