Metallic Happy Holidays!

I'm sharing a holiday card today. The sentiment Happy Holidays and scalloped frame were cut from gold mirror card stock. On the background panel I used Gold Rainbow Tape to embellish.  Makes it quick and easy! The gold metallic tape is a perfect match in color and shine.

Birdie Birthday!

 Have you tuned in to the Rainbow Tape Blog yet? If not you can find all the postings from the Design Team HERE! The Black Rainbow Tape just stays out on my desk, because its such an easy add on to almost any card. 
Today I've used it on the inside panel of my card with the clouds. I just added a strip of 1/8" Black Tape. I die cut the white frame, added my clouds to the inside panel and then the black edge and then put it back in place. Much easier than measuring and adding an additional layer of card stock!

My card is scary simple today!

White card stock with Orange Marmalade Distress Ink dragged right on to the paper.
Dylusions Black Paint and my Tall Reeds Stencil came next... dabbing a little paint on with the stencil in opposite corners.
I added a strip of Tim Holtz Halloween Washi along the edges of my black stenciled design and then edged it with some 1/16" Black Rainbow Tape.
I die cut a rectangle in the panel and added more 1/16" Black Rainbow tape to define the edge.
On the white card base I stamped my spooky sentiment from Impression Obsession: Haunting Night

Enjoy the hop!

A fun little witchy card for today featuring some Impression Obsession Dies!

I die cut the trick or treat and the witchy multiple times and glued them one on top of each other so that it had good dimension. Around the circle, I added some black jute string against the edge. My patterned paper is separated by using a strip of 1/16" Black Rainbow Tape

On the inside a sweet halloween wish from the clear set CL553 Is the Moon out Tonight!I edged all the paper using a little black cat's eye ink pad for a little distressed feel. Finished card is an A2.

A Rainbow Hello!

A sweet little Rainbow Hello is up for today! 
I used a die cut frame that cuts the strips out form the A2 panel. I colored each strip with Copics and dropped Blending Solution with a pipette along the colored strips before piecing them back in to the die frame. I also added a little 1/16" Black Rainbow Tape along each strip for a little extra detail. 
The little Hello Die is from Wplus9.

 I used Reverse Confetti's Big Stripe Cover Die. I removed all the stripes and colored them Copics in a Rainbow Pattern. After coloring I used a pipette to drop some blending solution on to the stripes, giving it a watercolor kinda look. A little 1/16 Black Rainbow Tape dresses up each stripe. 

Copics used: R46, R43, YR09, YR09, G46, G43, B45, B41, V06, V01, BV04, BV01

"Just Because" is from Impression Obsession's Mini Messages 3 Clear Set
The finished card is an A2.

A sweet and simple little fall card for today. Just a few touches with Copics add a little color. This is one of the new images Falling Leaves from the last release and it is also now available in a new clear set called Early Sunsets. I had a little stash of cork sitting on the desk and love how it added some texture to this quick card. The paper is from Echo Park's Falling for you collection... great happy warm colors with a dash of that great blue thrown in the mix! Finished card is an A2.
