Rainbow Border 2

Sometimes you need a special birthday card for a special someone.  Sometimes you need a stash of birthday cards on hand for those that sneak up on you, an unexpected party invite, or a new friend.

Over at StampNation, we’ve been working on making all those birthday cards for family, close friends…basically everyone you know you will be sending a card to this year.

Click here to learn more about this great class, then click here to become our newest StampNation Member!

This card would be great for a special someone in their favorite colors, or just make a bunch to have on hand.  You can even make a set of them to give as a gift!  Don’t forget to stamp envelopes to coordinate for an extra special touch.

Our Long Rectangle Block is perfect for lining up all those border stamps in your stash!

Rainbow Border birthday cards BLENDING TIPS:  When blending colors like this, be sure to choose colors that will work well together.  Usually choosing the next color in the rainbow will give you great results when you blend them together.

Best practice is to ink your stamp in the lighter ink color first, then add the darker color.  If the darker color gets on your light colored ink pad, you can dab it off with a paper towel, then add a bit more ink with your ink refill.

You can also use an Ink Blending Tool to “buff” out the line if you get that between colors and shades.

Rainbow Border Stamping 3 I kept these cards Clean and Simple, but you could dress them up by adding die cut flowers, critters, birthday cakes or balloons!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you’re inspired!

Challenge for StampNation Here’s a peek at what’s happening over at StampNation today!  We have a challenge up and by the looks of it, the inspiration is going to be off the hook!  Headed to stamp now!  :)

Have an awesome day!

Hi everyone!  Kristie here today sharing a card using new goodies from the Zen Garden release.

My card features the Love Grows stamp set and the Split Chevron Stencil.

youmalkemesmile I am not great at coloring, so I love that these cool flowers have the solid image to stamp to add color to the flowers.  That is exactly what I did for this card.  I stamped the outline image and then the solid image to “color” the flowers.  The leaves also have the solid image, but I decided to stamp just the outline image.

To create the black and white border on my card base, I used the Split Chevron stencil and sponged using Midnight ink.

I added a strip of silver glitter card stock to add some sparkle.  The sentiment was white heat embossed onto a strip of black card stock.  I finished off my card with adding some clear drops to the centers of the flowers.

I hope you enjoyed my card today.  Thank you for stopping by!

When it's my birthday, I always like to celebrate for a whole week.   Lunch with friends, a bit of extra stamping time, a trip to Starbucks (which I normally reserve for when I'm traveling!), an extra cupcake... what about you?  How do you treat yourself? We went a bit beyond that over at StampNation for…
