Hey, crafty friends! Based on the feedback we have been hearing, you LOVE the new Somewhere Over the Rainbow Kit as much as we do! If you are thinking about purchasing and have not yet, NOW is the time! There is limited quantity of this exclusive kit and it won’t be available again once they have sold out.
I have more Somewhere Over the Rainbow Kit inspiration to share with you today, so keep scrolling to see all of the rainbow goodness…
My project today is all about mass production. The Over the Rainbow die is one piece and to create a rainbow with different colors of cardstock or patterned papers, you will need to run the die through your die cut machine multiple times. Use this to your advantage and create multiple cards with different rainbow color arrangements! I did just that on today’s project, plus I used just half of the rainbow on each card which then created eight cards!
Watch the video to see how I mass produced eight rainbow cards using the Over the Rainbow die in the Somewhere Over the Rainbow Kit:
Let’s take a closer look at the project I shared in the video:
The rainbows on my cards are adhered to a Salt Water Taffy cardstock Stitched Rectangle Stacklets die cut. In the video, I share how to adhere two rainbows at one time to two Stitched Rectangle Stacklets using the negative die cut piece from the Over the Rainbow die cut.
The colors on my project coordinate perfectly with the envelopes and seals included in the Somewhere Over the Rainbow Kit: Cherry Pop, Candy Corn, Lemon Meringue, and Lime Zest. I popped up the Sugar Cube clouds die cut with the Rainbow Cloud Duo die with foam squares.
There’s just a little bit of stamping on this project. I stamped the smiley faces on the clouds and the sentiments with Oreo ink. I also stamped hearts onto the Salt Water Taffy background using Sugar Cube ink. The white ink on the light blue is pretty subtle, but adds a nice texture to the card.
I love that I have a pie of eight cards that are ready to pop into the mail to spread joy to a few of my friends!
How about more inspiration with the Somewhere Over the Rainbow Kit from the TE Creative Team and our special guest designers?
Jen Shults stenciled this colorful rainbow with the rainbow masking stencils and then added the die cut clouds popped up just a bit at both rainbow ends. I love the black and white striped patterned paper detail peeking out from underneath the rainbow and how it’s the perfect accent to match the stamped black polka dot details!
Lori Craig created and EXTRA colorful rainbow by adding in the extra rainbow arcs trimmed from the Over the Rainbow negative die cut piece. Instead of using the clouds included the kit, Lori used the Stitched Cloud Duo dies to add some extra puffy clouds to her rainbows!
Clean and simple designs can be some of the most stunning, don’t you think? This rainbow card created by Laurie Willison definitely fits that description! Laurie used the stencils to create her rainbow and added a few perfectly placed stamped details and the ‘oh happy day’ sentiment embossed in white on an Oreo cardstock strip.
One thing I have loved is all of the different looks that the TE Creative Team and guest designers have come up with. This pretty in pink card by Melody Rupple is no exception! Melody die cut her rainbow from Sugar Cube cardstock and added color to the rainbow arcs with her blender brushes. She embossed gold details onto the rainbow and then popped up the arcs on her card. Melody added even more twinkle and shine to her project by embossing the sentiment in gold and adding gold foil cardstock accents.
Jill Hawkins got creative with the rainbow masking stencils and placed the rainbow arcs into the corners of her project. Because she added the blending onto Salt Water Taffy cardstock, Jill first did a layer of Sugar Cube ink before she adding the colored inks. Adding Sugar Cube ink before stamping or stenciling on a colored cardstock will really help the colors shine!
Here’s another design by Jill Hawkins using the Over the Rainbow die from the kit. I am in love with her color combination and love how she did her background layers all with Sugar Cube cardstock, adding texture with an embossing folder. Jill’s signature stitching and cloud placement are the perfect finishing touches!
