FS475/ABNH - You Are Amazing

Congratulations to this week's Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper:  ju012835 (Julie). I chose this rainbow card from her amazing gallery as my inspiration:

I love using rainbow colours (linking up to ABNH's rainbow challenge) and I had some fun with a simple row of dots, lots of inks and some sentiments. In fact, I had twice the fun (see below for my second card).

I focused on Julie's:
-rows of rainbow colours
-black sentiment on the right
-'natural' image (star vs cloud)

I changed:
-did not separate my rows of colour
-added layers
-size and shape of card

I used (for both cards):
-Hero Arts Thanks (DC152)
-MFT Whimsical Greetings

For this one, I bent the row of dots (one of the benefits of using clear stamps!) and stamped a pattern to create this rainbow.

Yesterday was stamp day at my house! Look at all the talent in the room:

that's me (taking the selfie from a chair in my kitchen), Stephanie, Tracey, Tasha, Kate, Meredyth, Emily and Lindsey.

And on the deck (it was a great day!)

We had a Minc demo from Stephanie (and now we all need to foil all the things!) and played with all the new goodies we had all ordered since our last stamp day. And ate. And laughed. Mostly laughed! We've done this a few times now, so we're getting pretty good at being productive as well - I have a couple of fun cards coming up this week that I started during the afternoon. What a fantastic start to March break!
