Time Out #10, CASology #106 (Rainbow), Less Is More #182 (Anything Goes), SSS Wednesday 23/6 (Emboss It), SSS Monday 28/7 (J Is For …)

I’m missing having some quiet time to craft at the moment, so last night I gave myself a stay-up-crafty-night (or rather morning!) and made this …

Time Out 10, CASology 106, LIM 182, SSSW 24-7, SSSM 28-7The inspiration for this card came from a Simon Says Stamp stencil that isn’t even in my hot little hands yet, but not to let that stop me, I made my own stencil and used it to sponge the rainbow of colours across the card base.  The AE sentiment was snuggled in against the colour blocks and I covered everything with a coat of Wink of Stella, before putting the stencil back in place, tapping Versamark over the colours and clear heat embossing.  They’re so shimmery and shiny IRL they look rather jewel-like … here’s a closer look …

Time Out 10, CASology 106, LIM 182, SSSW 24-7, SSSM 28-7 Close UpI’m playing along here …

Time Out – Home Sweet Home (banner colours, arrow stripes, different depth bands on teepee)

CASology – Rainbow (of colours rather than a rainbow!)

Less Is More – Anything Goes (Happy, Happy Birthday Chrissie … hope it was wonderful!)

SSS Wednesday – Emboss It (shine over the colours)

SSS Monday – J Is For … (jewel like colours!)

My lunchtime break is nearly over so I’m heading back to the stonework … need to link before I go as a couple of these challenges will be closing their doors shortly.  Back later for an inspiring meander around!  Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy!  Anita 🙂

    This is simply gorgeous Anita. Love how you’ve used Wink of Stella before clear embossing the colours.

    just fabulous Anita. I love the way the blocks get bigger and all the shimmer is so full of Summer joy! Thanks for joining us at TIME OUT x

  3. Ardyth

    LOVE! So simple and fun – I love the contrast of the scripty font against the straight lines of the blocks! So glad you joined us at CASology this week!

    Rainbow colors always make me happy, especially when they are shimmery and glossy like yours! Absolutely love your graphic and fun card! And look at all the challenges it works for! Well done!

    Just so beautiful, Anita… I don’t think you need the stencil after all! I don’t have Wink of Stella – I know, how could I not? – I wonder about Stickles instead? May have to try this. Much luck on the challenges… you are always a winner to me =] Michele

  7. Brenda

    You are one clever girl Anita! I love this and love that you made your own stencil. The shimmer and shine is just beautiful and I’m sure it looks even more amazing in real life. Hugs, Brenda

    Oh, I love your rainbow colours and I can just imagine how lovely the shimmer on the blocks must look IRL!!! So clever to use the WOS and then heat emboss!! I love the sentiment you’ve used – I think the font goes so nicely with the blocks!! Lovely card, Anita!!

  9. Bev

    Anita, these colors and shapes remind me of some candy we had when I was a kid called, Chuckles. They were sweet, but I’d much rather see your card than have alllll the Chuckles in the world. You have rocked every single challenge with this beauty, and it was well worth being up so late/early! LOVE it. Great ‘sugar coated’ card, my friend. Winner, winner….

  10. Claire A

    Gorgeous, happy card Anita – kind of reminds me of piano keys! Have been trying to get in touch with you…any chance you could drop me a line with your email address please?!

    Midnight magic happened in the creation of this card, Anita – and what a marvel it is! Roy G. Vig couldn’t be any prouder than what you’ve done with the rainbow colours showcased in your oh-so-clever home-made stencil! Glitter and shimmer, along with a flowy font that dips slightly into the blocks, and we have a masterpiece to behold! WOW!! My creativity doesn’t work past 7:30pm, at the best of times, so your late night dazzle is all the more impressive!

  12. baileyrosy

    Your creativity amazes me ! I adore the colour blocks and the gorgeous sparkle and how you placed the sentiment , its always so inspirational Anita to visit your blog.

    I know the very stencil you mean…. I have and and haven’t got it in use yet *shame*!!! Love the graduated sized colour blocks for the rainbow colours :0)

    Staying up late is sometimes so worth it and thats certainly what happened with this card. Love it! How amazing to make your own stencil, you did a fantastic job with it, those lines are perfect!! Fabulous idea too to clear emboss and bet it looks wonderful in person. I’m supposed to be going to bed early tonight myself as I’ve been up till 1am all this week. Will go to bed soon but so many wonderful blogs to visit………

  16. Jen W.

    This rocks, Anita! How brilliant that you made the stencil yourself and the sparkle is fabulous. Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!

  17. Bobby

    Adding the Wink of Stella and clear embossing really makes the card extra special. Love the narrowing of the stripes and the rainbow colors.

  18. Deepti

    Oh my this is the coolest rainbow card 🙂 I like the changing width of the block and the shimmer. Your design ideas are so amazing 🙂

  19. jennis jems

    I’m sorry this comment is so late, but I was on holiday in Spain last week and wifi was a little limited and slow!
    This is super, but it looks as though you have linked it to too many challenges FOR US this time Anita!
    Thanks so much

      Think the badges must’ve been a bit confusing, Chrissie … two were for Time Out … one for the name and one for the inspiration picture … so it was only five challenges I played along with! Anita 🙂

  27. BarbGhig

    You are so clever, Anita! I love how you ‘color blocked’ the rectangle shapes, and that you increased the sizes as you went along…such a fabulous card, as always!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate it!
