Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Who doesn’t love puppies and rainbows! This card was inspired by the current Art Impressions Blog Challenge! The challenge is called “April Showers” and for this challenge we are looking for cards that include clouds, rain, rainbows, puddles, and umbrellas, etc.

Let’s get started by stamping and coloring our little puppies using the Ai WC Dog Set (4959). There are six sweet little pups in this set and we will be using all of them for this card. All of the coloring will be done using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Mustard, Lt Gray, Lt Brow, Beige, Platinum Brown, Mid Brown.

To set the scene for our card we will be inking the sky background using some Tim Holtz Speckled Egg Distress Oxide Ink. Then we can give this a spatter using the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen. This will give the sky a pretty sparkly effect!

Next we can create the grassy border using a grassy border die and ink this up using the Distress Inks in Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn.

Now we can create our pretty rainbow using some polka dot pattern paper from the Lawn Fawn Stripes ‘n Sprinkles Petite Paper Pad. This will give us a fun pastel polka dot rainbow! To create the rainbow, sun, clouds and sentiment we will use the Sizzix Thinlits Rainbow Magic die set!

Let’s quickly color in the sun using the Distress Inks in Dried Marigold and Squeezed Lemonade. We can also die cut several of the suns and stack them up for some additional dimension.

For the sentiment we will be using some sparkly glitter paper and also stack up a few layers as we did with the sun.

Finally, we can assemble this card! I really hope this card inspires you to make a card for our fun Springtime challenge….we can’t wait to see what you create!
