Sunshine & Rainbows – Day 2

I apologize right now, this is a heavy photo post.  I really need to figure out a way to do videos because that would have been easier.

This is the card I demo’ed at Demos Galore and I used it to offer a few tips for working with the Sunshine & Rainbows bundle.

J. Pollock Designs - Stampin' Up! - Sunshine & Rainbows

The first tip was for putting the rainbow together.

I started with a thin piece of cardstock and added a little SNAIL to the end of it.  I used SNAIL because it doesn’t have an immediate strong bond and I need to move the little arches around.  Okay, you can’t really see it in the photo but there is SNAIL along the left end of the strip of cardstock.

Then one by one, I added the different arches in order.  (My children used to watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse when they were little and the rainbow song from that show goes through my mind every time I put together a rainbow.)  I start with the Real Red all the way to the left so no white is showing and then continue on with the other colors.

When they are tightly attached to the white cardstock, cut off the white cardstock slightly behind the Elegant Eggplant.

I then do the same thing at the top and other side of the rainbow.  You don’t have to do the strip in the middle but it does help with stability and lining up the ends on the second side.  One of the customers at Demos Galore called it a Rainbow-on-a-stick which is so fitting for Minnesota.

The second tip is to create your own stencil using the cloud edgelits.  I made my test out of Whisper White but then decided to use the Window Sheets so it will last longer and I can see where I’m putting it.

I used Soft Sky and a sponge to lightly add cloud borders.  I started the sponge on the stencil and worked onto the paper in a circular motion.  It’s really hard to see in the photos.

To finish up the card, I used the clouds edgelits to cut clouds out of Whisper White and the Myths & Magic glimmer paper, added them to the cloud panel, tucked in the rainbow, added the sun and then put it all on a card base.  When I remembered, I inked the edges of the Whisper White clouds with some Soft Sky ink.

Sunshine & Rainbows – Day 1

This past weekend I participated in Demos Galore.  It’s an event where many demonstrators present projects and tips for products from the new catalog, I got to show how to use the Sunshine & Rainbows bundle.

This card got the most comments and was inspired by this card.

I die cut the Whisper White panel with one of the cloud edgelits.  For the rainbow, I cut 1/4″ x 2″ strips of each color and adhered them to a piece of Whisper White.  I attached the strip behind the panel leaving a little room for the colors to peek out.  I then cut the panel to 4″ and attached to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I also added a little Wink of Stella on the colors to give them some shimmer.

Occasions Catalog Swap Cards

The best part of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is getting together with your fellow demonstrators.  I went to a gathering on Saturday and participated in two swaps.  This post is for the Occasions Catalog swaps, I’ll have a post later for the Sale-a-bration swap and one for the make & takes Susan Campfield created for us.  It was just fabulous!

This is the card I created using the new Sunshine & Rainbows bundle, this was also one of the cards we created at my last Cookies & Cards class.  (You will get to see more of the bundle on my blog starting next week.)

Flourishing Phrases

I inked all of the images with VersaMark and then Rich Razzleberry and embossed using clear embossing powder.  You can’t see the shine in the first photo but you can in the second.  It looks like Berry Burst in the photo but it actually is Rich Razzleberry.
