OCC Rainbow Maker - Rainbow Die Cutting

Hi!! I'm here again with more cards from the Rainbow Maker card class! Today I'm sharing my cards that I made for day 3 - rainbow die cutting. I love die cutting techniques because often times you can get at least two cards from one technique piece!

I made both of these cards from one piece of cardstock and with one pass through my Big Shot. That makes me so happy! Having a toddler keeps me on my toes and limits my crafty time. I love techniques that give me more bang for my buck in a manner of speaking!

This is the card I intended to make. I grabbed my Plaid Background Builder stamp set from My Favorite Things and a bunch of inks from Simon Says Stamp. My ink colors were Watermelon, Orange Slush, Sunshine, Key Lime, High Dive, and Wisteria. I used three stamps from the stamp set and alternated between my ink colors stamping on a diagonal.

I grabbed my alphabet dies from Tim Holtz and Sizzix and arranged my letter dies onto the cardstock piece and die cut them all at once. I adhered the rainbow stamped and die cut panel onto a white card base and that was it! I didn't add any sequins...I'm still on the fence. I may end up adding some when I send it out! Sometimes I like the white background of the letters, but sometimes I think about paper piecing in some black letters. What do you think?

This card is like "leftover night". We have leftovers at least once a week in my house. It usually happens when I'm lazy and don't want to cook and we have a fridge full of food that needs to get eaten. This card reminds me of that! After I cut out my sentiment from the previous card I had all of these wonderfully colored plaid letters! I stuck them on a gray colored card base and that was all! I think I actually like my "leftovers" card better!

Thanks for coming by! I still have 5 more cards to show you! Check back soon!
