Hello there! Amy here showcasing the Color Me Happy Stamps and Sun Ray Dies. Hopefully you've seen how wonderful and versatile the sun ray dies are from the previous post; today I'm going to show you how I made my own stencils with them and used it on the cards.
For the first card, I trimmed acetate to 6X6 and used just the rays from the Sun Ray Dies. I ran it through the die cut machine many times in the shape of the sun's rays (see picture above).
Using the stencil I made, I colored in the open areas with rainbow colored Distress Inks using the finger dauber.
I added the sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink Pad. Then, I stamped and colored the adorable chick and paint brush from the A Good Egg stamp set and colored it with copics. I added foam adhesive behind the images and adhered it to the front panel.
For the second card, I made a stencil again- this time using the circles in the Sun Ray Dies.
I used the stencil to add rainbow colored Distress Inks (adding more colors than my previous card) again using the finger daubers.
Once I was done adding all the colors, I used the Color Word Die and ran the paper through the die cut machine. I also die cut white card stock using the same die four more times to add dimension to the card. To achieve this, I adhered them together one on top of the other. Before gluing down the down the word "color," I stamped the rest of the sentiment with a Versafine Onyx Black Ink Pad. Lastly, I added glossy accents to the die cut word "color" and the small circles on the sides.
Here are the two cards together. Thank you for visiting with us today. I hope I have inspired you in someway. Have a colorful Wednesday!
