DT Inspiration - Rainbow Birthdays

Hello there, it's Sarah P here with my May DT Inspiration post and in honour of Bev's BIG birthday month I've gone all out with some rainbow birthday creations.

Having been inspired by the cards Kristina Werner created HERE with their gorgeous inky colours and fun birthday ideas, I wanted to incorporate the previously released Block Party Birthday stamp from Uniko as well as the newly released 'BIG & BOLD Wish' die.

So here goes ... the first 3 using the Block Party stamp in various ways

The rainbow background for this one was created using Zig Clear Brush pens, blending the painted stripes with water. Once dried the Block stamp was stamped with Versamark ink and simply heat embossed in white.

A very similar card but this time the rainbow is on a diagonal and created by blending Distress Oxides before heat embossing the image in white.

Who knew that Distress Oxides could stamp so well...a little trickier than the first 2 cards but fun to create. Once all the coloured stamping was dry I stamped the whole image with Versamark ink before heat embossing in clear embossing powder. 

... and last but not least featuring a Cover plate die from Avery Elle with the 'BIG & BOLD Wish' dies and stamp set. Keeping with the rainbow theme I've smeared Distress Oxides around the oval  then kept the sentiment very simple inside. The 'You Are Amazing' sentiment is from the Just Because set.

I hope you've enjoyed my rainbow birthday cards and thank you for stopping by the blog today.
