Crafty with Caly: A NEW Simon Says Stamp Blog series!

Hi friends! Happy Tuesday and please join me in giving a very warm welcome to a new monthly blog contributor on our blog: Caly Person! We’re calling this happy new series on our blog Crafty with Caly! Be sure to watch the video for all the details and enjoy!

Hi Friends! This is Caly and I’m so excited to be here today sharing two fun rainbow cards using the Rainbow Card Die!  The die itself has all the components for a standing rainbow card, but I decided to make a second card using the rainbow element on an A2-sized card. 

I used Simon Says Stamp cardstock in Lipstick Red, Sunshine, Green Apple, Audrey Blue, and Lavender for my rainbow bands and die-cut the clouds from plain white cardstock.  A tip I want to share here is to use your rainbow die as a template to help line up all the pieces by in-laying the cut pieces back in and using tape to hold everything in place.   

Want to see what I mean?  Watch the video below for all the details! 

WATCH THE VIDEO:

Making the rainbow card is so easy when there’s a rainbow card base die – so I created a second card by ink-blending some fun clouds from the Layering Rainbow Stencil.  I added a die-cut sun to make this card even happier!  I also added a lining of sparkle on the clouds using Lawn Fawn Chunky Glitter. 

Both sentiment strips are from the Reverse Thinking of You Sentiment Strips that add a positive message on these fun rainbow cards. 

I hope you enjoyed these cards!  Thanks so much for stopping by today! ~Caly

  1. Love these awesome cards, Caly! Can’t wait to get that die set! Thanks for the beautiful inspiration, and big congrats on the new monthly feature! So happy for you! ❤️

  2. Such fun and cheerful cards. They are bound to brighten anyone’s day. I know they did mine. :) Thanks for the video and the tips about using the die to align the rainbow and the rainbow not being symmetrical. My dies should be arriving soon. I can hardly wait to start creating my own rainbows.

  3. Thank you Caly, for starting a crafting blog through SSS. I really enjoyed reading your introduction as well as your card-making instructions (which were easily understood by me). This craft is still new to me, and I look forward to your tutorials! I LOVE RAINBOWS! 🌈
