How to Make a Fun Rainbow Card with VersaColor

By Kathy Pisupati –

Hi there, Kathy here with Imagine Crafts with a new tutorial.  My space is limited so by using VersaColor pigment inks, I can reduce the amount of colored card stock I need on hand.

VersaColor pigment inks are bright and bold and coupled with the Delicata Golden Glitz it’s a winning combination.

Skill Level: Intermediate
Time to Complete: 1 hour with drying time

Directions:

Step 1:

You will need a card base measuring 4 1/4 x 5 1/2“. You will also need a panel that measures 4“ x 3 1/2“. I have also used the Rainbow Builder and Rainbow Accent dies from Honey Bee Stamps. You will die-cut  the rainbow card and the rainbow stripes from the accent set.

Step 2

Using VersaColor & Delicata pigment inks, use Imagine Crafts sponge daubers to apply your ink to the rainbow stripes. I used the Delicata Golden Glitz for the smallest stripes. Allow these pieces to dry.

Step 3

On the smaller card panel I used a stencil from Simon Says Stamp called Interlocking Circles Good Luck Charm. It is a Layered Stencil but I only used two of the layers. I used a heavy amount of Delicata Golden Glitz on the squares and a light amount on the diamonds. I also used the Daubers to ink around the edges of this panel.  On the front of the card panel, I splattered some gold watercolor paint.  I stamped a sentiment from Pink & Main, Spring Sentiments Stamp Set onto white card stock using the Delicata Golden Glitz Ink. I used my paper trimmer to cut the sentiment to size.

Step 4

Next use Imagine Craft On Point glue to adhere your stripes to the rainbow card die-cut.  I used Imagine Crafts Tear-It tape to adhere the rainbow card to the stencil panel. I also used Imagine Crafts On Point glue to adhere the sentiment to the front of the rainbow. Foam tape was used on the back of the stencil panel to adhere it to the card base.

Adorable handmade birthday card featuring a piglet image with rainbows balloons and silver lined clouds.

Today we are sharing how to create a fun birthday card with a cute piglet image using Memento inks and Fireworks Shimmery Craft Sprays. Did you know you don’t have to have a rainbow of expensive markers or watercolors to create a gorgeous colored scene?

Create a Rainbow Background with Memento Markers and Shimmer Stix

by Lindsay Adreon

I LOVE anything and everything rainbow in cardmaking, and if it sparkles, that’s even better! Making a rainbow watercolor background is pretty simple, but adding a good amount of sparkle without making mud can be more tricky. The Shimmer Stix are the PERFECT applicator to make a fun background that keeps its bright and vibrant colors without sacrificing any of the sparkle! I was so excited that the Shimmer Stix worked for this technique and can’t wait to try them with an ombre background, next!! I made two cards today, a birthday and hello card, plus check out the inside, too!!
