You’re A Star (Lawnscaping Challenge #110)

Hello, there! 🙂 In today’s video I am sharing a card made for the newest Lawnscaping Challenge (more on that at the end of my blog post). In this video I am showing how to do inlaid die cutting and watercoloring to create a soft rainbow.

The Rainbow die from Lawn Fawn is very versatile. When I saw the die cut and ordered it, I immediately knew I wanted to do some inlaid die cutting with the die. I knew the images from the So Jelly set from Lawn Fawn would match this die perfectly.

I wanted to spruce up a classic rainbow a little bit by adding watercolors. I did some quick watercoloring on small cardstock panels using Distress Inks. Instead of poking out each arch and wasting a lot of time, I used dryer sheets. This is an easy way to die cut intricate dies. It’s also easy to store the leftover pieces for future projects. For the actual inlaid die cutting part, I die cut the rainbow again and kept the negative piece. After adding a lot of adhesive on the notecard, I pieced together the arches.

You all know that I am crazy about cute stamp sets. The So Jelly set from Lawn Fawn screamed my name. I colored the jellyfish and starfish using Copic markers. After adhering them to the rainbow, I created the sentiment piece. For this I used the same stamp set but I also used a gorgeous new embossing powder from Wow called Long Island Teal. This is a teal colored glitter embossing powder with hints of gold sparkle. It’s so pretty and unique!
