November STAMPlorations CAS Challenge - Rainbow

Hi you, I'm very happy to see you here today. Thanks for visiting and thanks for supporting the STAMPlorations CAS challenge. I know I don't say it enough, but you are amazing! Now that I got that off my chest, how about focusing on the STAMPlorations November CAS challenge. This month the optional colour twist is my all time favourite colour - rainbow. There is nothing that makes me happier than getting all those beautiful inks out and creating a card in the full spectrum of colours.

Today's card is a quick and easy Christmas card idea. Start by picking out your favourite Christmas trees (mine are from STAMPlorations Sketchy Yule Trees). Ink up half of your stamp with one colour and the other half with another colour. For the benefit of your ink pads, ink up the lighter colour first. Then stamp the tree, and make sure to cover it with a mask before stamping the tree next to it. Once all trees are stamped and the ink has dried, die cut the sentiment. Make sure you keep track of all the small pieces like the parts inside the letters. Then it's just a bit of a puzzle. I attached the sentiment using 3D foam pads which I cut into tiny pieces, and then I made sure to add all of the tiny pieces inside the letters. I attached a piece of black card to the back of the front panel to give the sentiment a bit of definition.  

I hope you are inspired to link up your CAS cards (with an optional twist of rainbow) over at the November CAS challenge. You can use any products you want, although if you have STAMPlorations products we would love to see what you create with them.

Hi Karola, such a clever and creative idea to stamp your trees in rainbow colors and over lap your trees by masking. When I clicked on your photo I could see the black shadow much better that you used for your hidden die cut sentiment. A fun and festive card, my friend. TFS Hugs..Nancy
