Rainbow Builder Framelits Meets the Magical Day Bundle

Yesterday was my sister’s birthday.  I had made an entirely different card for her, and then I remembered that she has a unicorn coffee mug that she LOVES.  So with about 45 minutes until I had to leave to go see her, I very quickly put this card together!  I didn’t have a lot of time to fuss with the design, so I just kept it simple!  But I like how it came out.  (And so did she!)

I used the Rainbow Builder Framelits Dies to make the rainbow in Brights cardstock colors.  I used Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Pacific Point, and Rich Razzleberry.  I also cut the clouds from the same set in Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, just to give the card a little sparkle!  The unicorn was stamped in Memento Ink, cut out with the coordinating die from the Magical Mates Framelits Dies (which are part of the Magical Day Bundle) and colored the mane, tail, and horn with Stampin’ Blends.  I finished off the unicorn by brushing a little Clear Wink of Stella on the colored areas!

I finished off the card by adding some silver metallic stars from the Metallics Enamel Shapes, and it was done!  Simple, but also bright, colorful, and fun!

Looking for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!

This past weekend, I had a class in which participants made St. Patrick’s Day banners!  They mentioned that they wanted one of the pieces of the banner to show a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.  The rainbow and the gold were easy to make, as I have the Rainbow Builder Framelits Dies.  But I knew the pot was going to be a little more difficult!  Initially, I wasn’t sure how I was going to make it, and had decided that I would probably just cut one freehand.  But before I did so, I decided to flip through all of my cutting dies to see if there was something I could use.  And in my Coffee Cups Framelits I found the perfect solution:

The die circled above is supposed to be a clear dome lid for a coffee cup.  But I saw an upside down pot!  So I used it to cut some black cardstock, flipped it upside down, and placed it on the piece to see how it would look.  I think it works pretty well!  (And no fussy freehand cutting! Phew!)

Be sure to check back tonight for a bonus post at 8:00 pm Eastern Time!  I will be participating in a Facebook hop that will feature Valentine’s Day gift bags and boxes.  I hope you’ll check back in and follow along!

In the meantime, enjoy your day!
