You're Awesome Card (RCC #17)

Hello everyone!! :o)

Today I want to share with you this CAS (clean and simple), You're Awesome Card.

This Rainbow Color Card (RCC) is the seventeenth card I made for a Celebrating 30 Days of Pisces 2018 personal challenge. If you want to find out more about it, just follow the link provided. :o)

My card is a CASE of gorgeous card made by Francine Vuillème of 1001 cartes. Amazing CAS design. LOVE!!! :o)

I went with same design, card shape and layout as Francine, but I used different products, used different color of cardstock for a card base, skipped adding tiny details and went with more neutral look. :o)

Francine is a very talented and creative crafty friend from Switzerland. I love her crafting style. Her amazing designs and stunning coloring are an inspiration. :o)

Stop by Francine´s blog, 1001 cartes, and see more hers stunning creations. You can find her also over at InstagramYouTubeFBPinterest.

How I made my card...

For my card I used stamps from UNIKO 'Explosion! Additions' stamp set.

My first intention was to stamp an explosion shape on a panel and to make a card, but my stamping was not successful.

The shape is full of tiny dots and I managed to smear ink on one part. It didn't look nice. Instead of throwing it away, I cut out the explosion shape carefully and used negative part as a stencil. :o)

I placed my handmade stencil on a white square cardstock paper panel and blended Distress Inks through the stencil following the rainbow pattern. I removed the stencil and left colors to set up for half an hour.

I stamped a sentiment in the center of the rainbow explosion shape, glued the panel on a black square cardstock base and my card was finished. :o)

Card dimensions: 102 mm x 102 mm (4" x 4")

List of supplies:
  • UNIKO 'Explosion! Additions' stamp set
  • white cardstock paper
  • black cardstock paper
  • Ranger Archival Ink, Jet Black
  • Tim's Holtz Distress Inks:
    • Mustard Seed
    • Spiced Marmalade
    • Festive Berries

I LOVE how my card turned out, as well as the stencil, which I used to make one more card in this RCC series (I'll share the card tomorrow) and is still in a good shape to use it at least one more time. :o) Thank you Francine for the inspiration!
