Hello friends. I am excited to share a little rainbow of happiness from the latest PFS Release. Did you check it out yet? Last week we shared a whole lot of awesomeness for April. You can view all the new release products HERE!
I can't help myself and sing the song lyrics "Right Round baby Right Round" when I see this stamp. lol. It's called Round and Round We Go and it is such a fun background stamp. Did you know, these smaller backgrounds are actually repeating backgrounds and can be used on any size project? I didn't use it that way on this card but it is super easy to do. Nicole takes special care when designing these stamps and you simply move the image over, line up the edges and stamp again to repeat the pattern. I love that about these.
Today I just used it stamped once, but I made a statement with it by inking it up with a rainbow of colors using Catherine Pooler Inks. Mini ink pads work best for this technique and make the job a little faster. I made sure the inks overlapped a bit when I changed colors and used my finger to "tap" out any harsh lines between colors, BEFORE I stamped. Once the colors were down on the stamp, I gave it a quick huff with my breath to re-activate any of the ink that may have started to dry. Then I stamped with good even pressure all around. I used my Misti, so if it wasn't perfect I could go back in and re-ink, careful to place the ink colors in the same positions.
I set that panel aside and then used my favorite Hello Word die, but from Midnight card stock. I love a good bold black sentiment when working with rainbow colors. I added a pretty scalloped frame and a scattering of sequins to finish off the card. It was simple, but I love the results.
I hope you smile today and find some time this week to create something you love.
