STAMPtember® 2017 Blog Hop: Rainbow Cards


Hi there! Welcome to Day 2 of the STAMPtember release blog hop! So glad to have you here to celebrate with us. Make sure you read until the end because there is a huge giveaway on each stop of the hop and you don't want to miss it! :) 

¡Hola! Bienvenidos al segundo día del blog hop por la nueva colección de STAMPtember. ¡Me alegra  mucho tenerte por aquí para celebrarlo con nosotros! Se sortea un premio en cada parada del hop, así que leed bien hasta el final ¡y no os lo perdáis!



RAINBOW CARDS



There are so many amazing products in this release that it was hard to choose what to use first! What I knew for sure is that I needed to use the "You got this" and "Together" stamp sets for my sentiments, there are some powerful messages there! 

Hay tantos productos chulísimos en esta colección que ha sido difícil decidir qué usar primero. Lo que sabía seguro es que tenía que usar los sets "You got this" y "Together" para los sentimientos, ¡hay mensajes con mucha fuerza en esos sets! 



As you can see, I used a Rainbow color palette for both cards. For the first one I heat embossed the "Kaleidoscope Leaves Background" on a piece of watercolor cardstock and then used Distress Inks to add color. For the second card I used the stamp set "Under the Sea" and Simon Dye Inks to create a rainbow circle. 
You can watch all the details on the video below or at my Youtube channel.

Como veis, he usado la misma combinación de color en las dos tarjetas. En la primera he embosado el sello "Kaleidoscope Leaves Background" en un trozo de cartulina para acuarela y después he usado tintas Distress para colorear el fondo. Para hacer la segunda tarjeta, he usado el set "Under the Sea" y tintas de Simon Says Stamp para crear un círculo con los colores del arcoiris. 
Podéis ver todos los detalles en el vídeo de aquí abajo o en mi canal de Youtube
