Just a rainbow note…..

For today’s jaunt into crafting – as I only have a limited time today – I ventured into the clean and simple genre again.

The inspiration for this card was from Addicted to CAS, with the code word of ‘rainbow’. I may have gone a little too much the other way, compared to my multi-layered and embellished cards, but I like the simplicity of the design, and thought it would be ideal if I created some little note cards, sold by the charity in a set of four, for instance. I may try other little stamps in the corner, but have used stars and hearts from the Catherine Pooler stamp set ‘For Everything’. This stamp set was part of her Stamp of Approval collection and I hadn’t had a chance to use it yet.

The actual small little set comes with many stamps, for a variety of occasions, including sentiments, strips of dots, Christmas tree, kite, stars, a mug…..a wide variety.

I also used several of her inks, as I find them very vibrant, and stamp beautifully with a full and crisp image – I didn’t even use my Misti! The base card is Stampin Up, as is the layered part, as I find this very smooth card to be ideal for stamping.

I struggle to accept a clean and simple design and technique, as I have said before, but it does mean that the cards are quicker to make – once you have decided on the design and colours. Which is the hard part. Which is why I like to get inspiration from a challenge.

I shall be adding my latest card into:

Addicted to CAS – rainbow code word

  1. I agree with Bobby…it takes time to shift from layers and embellishments to clean and simple…but it looks like you’ve manged the ‘leap’ wonderfully with your duo here! Stars and hearts in rainbow colours: nothing more needed! Thrilled you shared these gems in the Addicted to Stamps and More gallery!


  2. I know what you mean about going from multi-layers with lots of embellishments to a very clean and simple card. It takes a while to make the adjustment and I found I began to stay more on the CAS side. You did a great job with your little rainbow stars note card. Thanks for sharing it at Addicted to Stamps and More and at Addicted to CAS.
