Hey, crafty friends! It’s Heather here today and I have another bunch of inspiration to share with you that is created with the new rainbow products that released this past Tuesday. Click below to shop the individual products from the Somewhere Over the Rainbow Kit (the kit is no longer available) and the new products we introduced!
Also, don’t forget about the promotion for this release:
Right now through Sunday, July 12th (or while supplies last) spend $50 or more in the Taylored Expressions webstore and receive a FREE package of our exclusive Rainbow Bright Deco Foil Transfer Sheets.
Like Taylor mentioned in the last post, we both challenged ourselves to use the Rainbow Bright foil on our projects this week and boy was that fun! Watch the video below to see how I created my foiled rainbow card:
In the video, I share how I created the foiled rainbow and clouds on my card using Stick-It double sided adhesive and die cuts. The technique uses no heat to transfer the foil and is quick and easy to do!
I added Stick-It to both sides of a piece of cardstock and then die cut the rainbow using the Over the Rainbow die and clouds using the pierced edge die from the Rainbow Cloud Duo die collection. I peeled off the paper backing on one side of the die cut pieces and applied the foil to the exposed adhesive. I found that using a bone folder really helped me press the foil onto the adhesive and transfer the it evenly!
I added my shimmery and shiny rainbow and cloud pieces to a piece of Sugar Cube cardstock that I stamped with the hearts from the Over the Rainbow stamp set using Sea Salt ink. Since I added Stick-It to both sides of the cardstock die cuts, I simply removed the backing that was left to adhere the pieces.
The sentiment on my card is created with the new Building Blocks – Be Bright stamp. I stamped the words and phrases onto Toffee cardstock, embossed them in white, and then cut them out with the coordinating Building Blocks die. I chose the pieces to make the ‘sending you rainbows’ sentiment and added them to the card with foam squares to pop them up a bit.

Now, how about more inspiration from the CT Creative Team? Keep scrolling for all of the eye candy!
Melody Rupple created the cutest tags to shower love on friends using the new Brighter Skies stamp set and coordinating dies. The tone on tone stenciling is the perfect backdrop for the sweet images from the set and Melody added a few words to her stamped sentiments to personalize them with the new Building Blocks – Be Bright stamp set.
Jill Hawkins used the umbrella image from the Brighter Skies stamp set to create this card that is perfect for a baby or bridal shower. You could also use this card to simply send your love to a friend or family member. I love how Jill stamped the umbrella image in gray to create a background design along with pink Little Bits – Hearts die cuts and then popped up a colored umbrella image next to her sentiment.
Jill Hawkins also colored up the rainbow from the Brighter Skies stamp set and added it to a cheery yellow background created with the Masking Stencils – Rectangles set and the heart stencil from the Puppy Love Layered Stencil set. Who wouldn’t love a bit of encouragement and happiness like this in their mailbox?
Noriko Fairchild brought on the sparkle with this card that she created with the Over the Rainbow die. She created her rainbow similarly to the foiled rainbow card I shared above, but instead of applying foil Noriko added the Bits & Pieces – Rainbow Sprinkles to the double sided adhesive. The sentiments on Noriko’s card are created with the new Building Blocks – Be Bright stamp embossed in white on Guava cardstock.
Melody Rupple paired the Over the Rainbow stamp set and Over the Rainbow die with the Rainbow Waves Background stamp and it’s a great match! Melody inset her die cut rainbow into Sugar Cube cardstock after she added color to the arcs with her Blender Brushes. She added bold stamped details with Oreo ink and then added the rainbow to the tone on tone background stamped with the Rainbow Waves Background.
Here’s one last card for today from Jen Shults created with the Over the Rainbow die. She added the rainbow over a background created with the Masking Stencils – Rectangles set and the heart stencil from the Puppy Love Layered Stencil set. I love that Jen die cut the clouds on her card from Sugar Coated 100% Wool Designer Felt for a touch of sparkle! The ‘you’re awesome’ sentiment is from the Building Blocks – Be Bright stamp and is embossed in white on Oreo cardstock.
