Happy Monday! It’s time for our Create with Connie and Mary Inspiration Monday challenge! This week we have a cute rainbow pillow as our inspiration!
RAINBOW OF HAPPINESS
I love the soft pastel colors on this pillow, so used Stampin’ Up!’s new Brilliant Rainbow Dies to recreate it. And I’m going to say again, I wish we had a pretty shade of PINK like in this pillow! A true baby pink to go with the peachier ones we have now.
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Highland Heather cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- A 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Basic White was added on top.
- A 2-3/4 x 2-3/4 square of Sunshine & Rainbows DSP was added to the front.
- I cut one of each color of rainbow with the Brilliant Rainbow Dies (I saved the extra pieces for future projects!) from Highland Heather, Soft Sea Foam, So Saffron and Blushing Bride cardstocks and added them to the DSP with Monoadhesive Glue.
- Three of the clouds were cut from Basic White cardstock with the dies and added under the rainbow.
- The greeting from Rainbow of Happiness stamp set was stamped with Highland Heather Ink under the DSP.
- A trio of In Color Jewels were added to the background next to the greeting.
This came together SO quickly! Cutting the four rainbows took longer than actually making the card! OK…check out what Mary did with the Inspiration Monday Challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary!
