Watercolor Rainbow Card Set_1

Hey friends! Are you as excited about the new Among the Stars release as I am??? I LOVE the new Build a Rainbow die, and I thought this would pair up great with the new Uplifting Thoughts stamp set to create some happy cards!

The Build a Rainbow die set is really versatile and there are so many ways you can use it. I ended up cutting the rainbow in half to create two cards… and I loved it so much I had to make two more! I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to color in my rainbow, but you could definitely use other coloring mediums for this, or even cardstock if you are short on time or not a big fan of coloring!

You’ll see I created these rainbow scenes with a few other Simon products;, including the Happy Days die set. These dies are actually a coordinating set to the Happy Days stamp set that came out with the May 2016 card kit. However, all the shapes are really great for using on their own, which makes them a great addition to you stash, even if you do not have the stamp set! I used both the cloud and sun dies for my scene, but I could see all sorts of fun being had with all the other dies too. When you take a look at products in a creative way, and not just the obvious, you can come up with so many unique card designs!

To see how I created these happy rainbow cards from start to finish, be sure to check out the video below!
