The clouds are from the Rainbow Dreams Dies and ran through the die cut machine with the Rainbow A2 Pierced Cover Plate Die.

Rainbow Dreams Inspiration and Release


Rainbow is my favorite color!  

Today's card is a little less complicated than the previous two.
The rainbow is cut from the Rainbow Accents Dies.  The skinny rainbows in between the arches are from that set as well.  
I stamped the wider arches with the Rainbow Dreams Stamps. The clouds are also stamped with that set and cut with the Rainbow Dreams Dies.
The hearts are in the Rainbow Accents Dies - there are stars in there too!
The sentiment is from the Look For the Rainbow Stamps and Dies and is embossed in White Embossing Powder.

Rainbow Dreams Mini Release Inspiration

This is a mini release, so there aren't enough products to do several days of actual sneak peeks.  Instead, we did a sneak peek yesterday and today and tomorrow are just inspiration posts because they all basically use the same products.


Sending Sunshine and Rainbows!


For this card, I cut wide strips of 5 different colors and adhered them to a piece of white.  I then ran them through the die cut machine with the Rainbow A2 Pierced Cover Plate Die.  This thing has a LOT of texture and is so pretty.  Sometimes photos don't show just how pretty it looks in real life.
The rainbow is cut with the Rainbow Accents Dies.
The sun is from the Rainbow A2 Card Builder Dies and the clouds and heart are from the Rainbow Dreams Dies.  I textured them with the Rainbow A2 Pierced Cover Plate Die.
The sentiment is from the Look For the Rainbow Stamps and Dies and is embossed in White Embossing Powder.



See you tomorrow for the last inspiration and the release!

Lovely Layers: Peony Die Set Is A Real WOW!

One of my all time favorites in the Honey Bee Stamps Lovely Layers series is the Peony!  I love peonies anyway, but this die set captures their beauty perfectly without being overly complicated to assemble.


I used four colors of cardstock from the same color family and a little Distress Oxide ink to create three flowers and a bud. I arranged them around the outside leaving space in the middle for the sentiment.  I trimmed everything that was hanging over.

The Mini Candy Bar Slider Die makes the perfect box for these. The crate holds my 8 embellished candy bars.  This would be so perfect to leave on someones desk!
I have decorated each of them with images from the Kawaii Patriotic Stamps and Dies colored with Copic markers. The sentiment is from the God Bless America Stamps and Dies.

Idaho Custom Creations June Tiered Tray Kit & New Signs

It is time to reveal the June Tiered Tray kit and this month is 4th of July theme!
It was fun to only get out 3 colors for a change!


This month I am using my new risers instead of one of my tiered trays.  I really like these, they're beautiful and require a lot less fluff and filler.  I feel like I can see the pieces better.
The risers are from Felt Creative Home Goods (as are my trays) and can be found HERE.

The red, white and blue knitted hat is from Vin Van Knits and my marshmallow cups are this brand and out of stock, but these are similar. 
As a reminder, the kit comes unfinished and with everything you need to complete it, including paint.  It is a monthly subscription through Idaho Custom Creations.  Michelle owns the company, I just paint for her and enjoy all her products!
She offers the subscription kit as well as regular products for sale in her shop, and she takes custom orders. 

I often use my own paint so I can coordinate it with my home decor, and this month is no exception.  The kit will have red, white and blue paint in it, but I used my own.
I will link my colors here in case you want the exact same.

Deco Art Americana Brand
(It is a bright navy, it looks darker in the photos).
Believe it or not, I didn't antique the front of any of the pieces!  However, I did finish the backs and the stands with Folk Art Antiquing Wax.  I had to use it somewhere!


Pieces in the June kit.
Individual close up photos of each piece are below.







Two new Interchangeable Sign choices this month. 
Also available with this link is the starter kit in case you want to get a sign this month.


Double sided jar filler stars.  Stars on one side, stripes on the other.


This month's extra is a larger set of stars.  
Michelle has named them Star Leaners because you need to lean them again something so they stand up.  I glued my small star to the large star so now they are wide enough to stand up on their own.

My felt balls are from Etsy.  They are the 3cm larger balls and I purchased them from CutestLittleGarlands.
