I am so excited to share five cards from one awesome kit! Erin Lee Creative is a new company to me, although they have been around for awhile. I was so excited to find them. They have fabulous stencils, stamps sets and dies. I will have a video soon using her word dies
This is the first kit that Erin Lee Creative has produced and I hope it is not the last! The kit is chalked full of wonderful items including:
2 Rainbow stencils,
2- 4 x 6 stamp sets one is a sentiment set,
1 6 x 6 Rainbow Background stamp,
1- Rainbow Metal Die (2 x 3)
The adorable mesh bag in a surprise color.
Card 1- I used the 6 x 6 Rainbow background stamp and several rainbow colored inks from Simon Hurley Create (all products are linked below) to create a "messy" rainbow background. The ink pads were dabbed in several places on the stamp in random places to create a colorful rainbow color background. The card was finished off with a simple "Thanks" sentiment from the Rainbow Sentiments stamp set heat embossed using Brutus Monroe Sparkle Alabaster embossing powder. I love the colors and simplicity of this card.
Card 2- This is probably my favorite of the five cards. Let me know down below what your favorite is. I am a stencil fantastic! I love the versatility of stencils, they have a great price point and companies are getting so creative with the designs. I was pleasantly surprised when I got my kit and saw that the stencils had two different cloud edges. I used the cloud edges along with Salty Ocean Distress oxide inks and a blender brush from Nuvo to add clouds to the entire panel. I used the die cut rainbow to add a colorful rainbow cut from cardstock (mostly Lawn Fawn). I realized that I did not have a cloud die in my stash. I tried to cut one free hand....DISASTER! I decided to use the stencil on a piece of Simon Says Stamp Sparkle cardstock to create an outline I could cut around. It worked beautifully! Another use for stencils. I am telling you I LOVE me some stencils!! To finish off the card I added the sentiment "God Always Keeps His Promises" and mounted it onto a 110 lb Neenah Solar White card base.
Card 3- For card three I used the rainbow stencil to add foiling to the panel. The stencils have a line down the middle of the rainbow so you are able to easily line up half of the rainbow for your projects. Once the stencil was adhered to a piece of Hero Arts Pitch Black cardstock Thermoweb transfer gel was added to the rainbow. The heart was masked off because I did not want half a heart on the card. After the gel had dried I added shattered rainbow foil to the rainbow using a laminator. I love the results that foiling gives, especially on dark cardstock. The panel was then cut down on the left side and added to a piece of Lawn Fawn Spring Glitter cardstock with a small strip of Tonic Gold Mirror cardstock on the side.The sentiment "Be the rainbow in someone cloud" was added to the bottom of the rainbow to mimic a cloud in white embossing powder.
Card 4- The kit has a great sentiment stamp set and I wanted to put the focus on the "somewhere" stamp for card 4. The sentiment was head embossed in white on white cardstock and then I applied Simon Hurley Create Inks in rainbow colors using emboss resist technique. I used the rainbow die and cut it out of Lawn Fawn Glitter cardstock and added it to the center to give it some sparkle. I did not add an additional sentiment to the card. I wanted to keep it simple so I could use it for any occasion by adding a sentiment to the inside.
Card 5- The only thing that rivals a stencil in my carft room is making a shaker card. When I saw the rainbow die I knew it was calling to be made into a shaker! Erin Lee Creative has amazing Holographic cardstock in A2 sizes. This was a perfect pairing with the die and shaker elements. For the cloud I added the sentiment Thanks! from the stamp set and also added some of the shaker elements around the rainbow for added interest.
I hope these cards inspired you to get crafty! Please check out Erin Lee Creative trust me you will not regret it, ok your wallet might, but who can put a price on crafting fun??? 😀
