I love adding cheerful clouds onto my cards. Whether it’s stenciling or die cuts, they always add a whimsical touch.
Lately, I’ve been trying a lot of techniques with my Spectrum Noir Aqua markers. These markers are a great way to get a watercolor look if you’re not that comfortable with traditional water coloring with a brush and paint. One of the really fun techniques I tried was stamping with the markers using a layered stamp set. I really like Avery Elle’s Layered Rose set and wanted to see what these markers could do.
A shiny rainbow to welcome a new bundle of joy is the theme of my project today. I love all the options you have with Avery Elle’s Rainbows stamp set and matching die set for making colorful greetings.

As a card maker, I am drawn to bright, cheerful colors. Mostly white card bases with pops of pinks, mint and soft yellows. There are times though, when I need to make a masculine-style card. This is where the richer colors come in with some darker accents. For today’s project, I’m using a background die from Avery Elle called Waves for a quick and easy masculine birthday card. Balloons from Avery Elle’s Balloons stamp set are heat embossed with rich colors that complement the neutral background.
