Jen Carter Love You More Rainbow 1 wm

First up is my favorite card for this release.  You'll start to see a theme over the next few days as for some reason I was really drawn to making rainbow colored items with paper scraps.  For this card I started by using the Quilted Stitched Spirals Die on the white background piece.  I then cut the gray matted layer with one of the Stitched Mats: Dual Stitched Rectangles dies.  The sun is the Sunshine Die: Large die.  The stitched clouds are from the Rainbow & Clouds Die set.

Now on to the new products I used on this card... The FUN heart shaped balloons are from the new Love You More Hearts & Balloon die set.  This die set includes heart dies & heart balloons.   It also includes two thin balloon strings dies that I think are perfect!  To create the various colors for the balloons, I cut thin strips of cardstock and layered them onto a scrap piece of white covered in adhesive and then die cut.  I embossed one of the sentiments from the coordinating Love You More Stamp set onto the the largest balloon.

This next card uses a similar process to make rainbows that I used in the first card.  I started by die cutting three of the Fringe Scalloped Heart dies into my white cardstock.  I then layered a rainbow cardstock panel behind them and popped it up with dimensionals.  I added the new Love You Much Border die at the bottom.

I also used glue and some ultra fine glitter to add a strip of glitter to each heart.

All of the Lil' Inker products that I've used (and more!) are available to purchase right now in the Lil' Inker Designs store!  Your next stop on the blog hop is over to Jessica Ballas' blog!
