Painted rainbow - three ways

 Hi there!

I am back in my craft room after a two week break. We had an amazing time in South-Africa celebrating my nephew's wedding, my niece's graduation (PhD!) and two more family birthdays (a 21st and a 30th). Thanks to all these celebrations we had the opportunity to catch up with every single member of our family ... my heart is full !

It feels good to be back though and I had a productive morning in the craft room. Quite a surprise , because after a break I usually find it difficult to get the creativity going again.

I have three cards to share today. All of them feature the Painted Rainbow Cling Stamp from the new Dear Friend release by Simon Says Stamp.

First card :

For the first card I also used :
  • Birthday Bears stamp set (Balloons and sentiment)
  • Altenew ink
  • Versafine black ink
  • Adhesive foam tape
  • Rhinestones

Second card :

For the second card I also used :

Wow, these are so gorgeous, Hannelie! I adore how you used a tall vertical sentiment in the second card. Thanks for playing along with us at FMS this week.

Glad you had a great time celebrating and catching up with your family Hannelie and these three card are so clever and match the respective challenges brilliantly, and those stripes used verticallu and horizontally are such a unique look...I also love both the stamps and the sweet little butterflies and paired with some super sentiments. x
