You are my rainbow after the rain

Today I wanted to share this card using the new Crafin Desert Divas Rainbow die in combination with the unicorn images from the Crafin Desert Divas Magical Unicorns stamp set that was released in March. I think they go so well together.

Instead of using the rainbow in a more traditional way, I wanted to use the semi circles to create a complete circle - but keeping the colors of the rainbow. I die cut the rainbow from white card stock and colored in the individual pieces with Copic markers and added a layer of Wink of Stella. After they were dry, I adhered them to the center of a kraft card base.

I stamped the unicorn image on mix media card stock and colored it in with Zig markers and also adhered it to the card base in the center of the rainbow circle using 3D foam squares.
To finish off the card, I used the sentiment "You are my rainbow after the rain" from the Crafin Desert Divas Stormy Weather stamp set.

I really hope you enjoyed this card! Have a great weekend!

Happy Insta Girls Oster Blog Hop

Hi everyone, and welcome back to another Happy Insta Girls Blog Hop! This blog hop initiative came alive thanks to the lovely Birka! Most of us met on Instagram that has a large and loving crafting community. I have met so many lovely girls on Instagram and some of them are part of this blog hop.

Birka drew lots for the blog hop line up and everyone sent an Easter card as well a little something to the chosen crafty friend. I received a lovely package by Dana with a lot of sweet treats as well as a beautiful card. Thank you so much Dana, I was so happy and your card is wonderful!

And I had to send out a card to Jessa and below is the card that I made for her.

I also send her a little treat. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of it. So hop along to Jessa to find out what she thought of my card and what I sent her :)

Happy Easter to all of you and happy hopping! Take care!

Make a wish

Hello everyone, I am back with a special card for you. Today I am sharing a simple gift tag with you using the Shaker Tag Dies by Craftin Desert Divas.

I started off die cutting the basic shape of the shaker tag from Kraft card stock and also used the embossing embellishment dies for the top and bottom of the tag to give it more interest.

On mix media card stock, I stamped one of the unicorn from the Magical Unicorns stamp set and colored the image in with Zig markers.  
For more embellishment, I also die cut two clouds from the Scene Builders die set from white card stock.

To assemble the tag, I first stamped the sentiment "Make a wish" from the Magical Unicorns stamp set on the top of the tag using black dye ink. Then I adhered the unicorn and one of the clouds to the tag and adhered the second cloud using 3D foam squares to give it a bit more dimension.

I really hope you like this tag and got inspired! After all, Easter is almost here and we all are going to need some gift tags! ;)
