Hi Friends!

I did it again! As soon as I saw the new Saying Thanks kit from the Stampin’ Up! Kits Collection I saw a shaker card!

This kit is beautifully bright as created but even more fun to make alternatives with! Have you seen it? It’s a kit that requires no stamping!




I had so much fun making these alternative projects! I have more ideas swirling around, as well, so you just may see more projects soon!


Saying Thanks


This trio of rainbow cards makes me so happy! I love all things rainbow. When my son was 4 or 5, you could ask him what his favorite color was and he’d tell you “rainbow”. He colored all of his coloring sheets in rainbow and loved it.



My first card was the quickest and still adorable! I used the basic layout the kit gave but added some Pastel Adhesive-Backed Sequins and Parakeet Party Bakers Twine for a boost. A double bow, of course! You know me!



For my second card, I knew I wanted a rainbow card with one of the furry friends from the Rain or Shine suite. I originally thought it would be the turtle – he’s my fave! But when I played around with the pieces, Mr. Fox gave me the “there’s better days ahead” vibe.  I used my Stylish Shapes dies to make 3 circles out of Designer Series Paper and layered them to give Mr. Fox a small rainstorm. But we all know.. this too, shall pass… Onto the rainbow!



And or course, the grand finale… The awesome shaker card! This was SO easy because the layer in the kit already has all of the hearts ready to punch out! I still need to find something to do with those pieces. I don’t want to waste them. I used window sheet and foam strips behind the layer and some of all three colors in the For Everything Fancy Sequins packs. My double bow is the Sweet Sorbet Bakers Twine. I love it. Don’t you?


I hope you are loving these rainbow cards as much as I am!!
