"It's a RAINBOW Party" Blog Hop - 8/15-8/17

Today we are helping our dear
sweet Blend,
 Candace of Scrappin' 2 Little Princesses,
celebrate the
Birthdays of her  two Sweet Little Princesses
Happy Birthday Little Princesses

I am so happy to join this r celebration
and talented line-up of friends
with this fantastically colorful 
and cheery
"It's a Rainbow Party"
Blog Hop!

We were all given this image of a 
Slew of Rainbows and Festive Birthday Fun
to get our creative MOJO flowing.
How can you not want to create 
when you see this???

I actually had a ton of ideas
rush through my mind
and even waited until the last
minute to make my project.
I finally decided on
some Glittery Rosettes
and Fun Rainbow colored buttons.

Here is my Card for Candace's Little Girls

I started with white card stock for the base.
Then I cut a few strips (1"x12") out of different colors 
of card stock (solid and Glitter Couture by Core'dinations).
The star borders were created from the strips by using
a fun ekSuccess American Girl Star Border Punch
 To make adhering them
to the card more easy, I ran them through my
Xyron 1/2" Sticker Maker.
The rosettes were created by 
scoring my 12" strips every 1/4"
on my Scorpal.
I adhered some buttons on the center of each rosette with my glue gun.
For the sentiment: I used a stamp from my own Unity Grab Bag
and inked it with Tim Holtz - Black Soot onto white cardstock.
I used a 2" circle punch to cut around the sentiment.
I traced around the perimeter of the circle using my Zip Glue Pen
then in a circular wheel motion, ran the edge
of the circle through some
into Martha Stewart Glitter (tourmaline/pink).
The misting was done using my handmade glimmer mist in a Mini Mister
Handmade Glimmer Mist
2 parts water
1 part Perfect Pearls (liquid)
2 drops Vermillion re-inker, 
3-4 drops FolkArt Acrylic paint (pink)
I cut a second circle to add behind the sentiment.  
I adhered them together with some 3D foam square adhesive.  
I raised both up from the card using another layer of foam squares.
I adhered more buttons around the 
circular sentiment
in a rainbow color pattern using some
Glue Dots.

For the inside of the card
I used all left over coordinating
colors of card stock from my stash
and randomly placed them
until I liked how it looked.

  34. Very cute card Jessica! Thank you so much for sharing and for the opportunity to win! PS... I don't blame you for the *small print* with the way shipping costs are nowadays, to send things abroad is almost imaginable! I used to love buying scrapbook goodies for places like the UK and Australia, but it costs more for shipping than the product now! It's a bummer actually.
