5 Cards 1 Kit: Rainbow Is My Favorite Color (Simon Says Stamp June 2021 Card Kit)

Hi everyone. This card kit just makes me happy. It’s all about rainbows and what’s not to like about that?!? The Simon Says Stamp Rainbow Is My Favorite Color 6×8 inch clear stamp set has a ton of rainbow images and cute sentiments to go along with them. Lots of options with this one. You can also use the straight stripe in non rainbow cards or make no traditional rainbows. I was definitely inspired my several of the design team cards I’ve been seeing posted on instagram @ #sssck.

The Kit includes:

For the first card, I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Solar White 8.5 x 11″ Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make a card base. Then cut a piece of the aqua tiny cloud pattern paper from the Doodlebug Custom Rainbow 2021 6×6 inch paper to 4 x 5-1/4″ and a strip of the rainbow striped paper (also from the same paper pack) to 5/8 x 5-1/4″ and adhered them all to the card base. I added White Love from Lizi Pin Stripe Peel-Off Stickers on each side of the striped strip.

I diecut 1 rainbow from Neenah 110lb Solar White 8.5 Neenah 110lb Solar White 8.5 x 11″ Cardstock with the Simon Says Stamp Hello Rainbow die and used the Simon Says Stamp 1 inch cube ink pads in Jellybean, Sunshine, Hot Lips, and Audrey Blue and Mini Sponge Daubers to create a rainbow. I stamped and fussycut two clouds from the Simon Says Stamp Rainbow Is My Favorite Color 6×8 inch clear stamp set onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Solar White 8.5 x 11″ Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I used Copic Marker BG000 + 0 (Blender) to color the clouds. I adhered them to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Rainbow Is My Favorite Color 6×8 inch clear stamp set onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Solar White 8.5 x 11″ Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, which I cut down to 1-1/16 x 2″.

To finish it off, I added a tiny pink heart from the Doodlebug Chasing Rainbows Shape Sprinkles and lots of the Memory Box Fairy Jewels.

On the inside of the card, I added a strip of the same paper Doodlebug Custom Rainbow 2021 6×6 inch paper I used on the front cut to 3/4 x 5-1/2″.

For the second card, I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Solar White 8.5 x 11″ Cardstock to 7 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 3-1/2″ to make a card base. Then cut another piece to 3-1/4 x 8-1/4″.

I used the Simon Says Stamp Build A Rainbow 6×9 inch stencil with the Simon Says Stamp 1 inch cube ink pads in Jellybean, Sunshine, Hot Lips, and Audrey Blue and Broken China Distress Ink to create my scene. I stenciled the clouds first with Broken China Distress Ink, the rainbows next with the 4 colors included in the kit and lastly the sun. I traced the outer rainbow onto piece of post-it note paper to use as a mask before adding the sun. I adhered the panel to the card base and stamped a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Rainbow Is My Favorite Color 6×8 inch clear stamp set onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Solar White 8.5 x 11″ Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, which I fussy cut and added to the card.

I added some yellow jewels from the Memory Box Fairy Jewels to the sun and some clear ones to the card.

On the inside of the card I stenciled some clouds at the bottom edge of the card with the Simon Says Stamp Build A Rainbow 6×9 inch stencil and Broken China Distress Ink.

For the third card, I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Solar White 8.5 x 11″ Cardstock to 7 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 3-1/2″ to make a card base. Then cut another piece to 3-1/4 x 8-1/4″.

I kept this card pretty simple and the rainbows didn’t take as long to stamp as I thought they might. Using my MISTI made the process faster. I stamped three rainbows from the Simon Says Stamp Rainbow Is My Favorite Color 6×8 inch clear stamp set onto Neenah 110lb Solar White 8.5 x 11″ Cardstock using the Simon Says Stamp 1 inch cube ink pads in Jellybean, Sunshine, Hot Lips, and Audrey Blue inks and fussy cut them. I stamped the clouds from the same stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto more Neenah card stock and fussycut those out as well.

I cut a piece of the pattern paper from the Doodlebug Custom Rainbow 2021 6×6 inch paper to 1-1/2 x 3-1/2” and stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto it.

I adhered the pattern paper to the card and used 3M Foam Tape to adhere the rainbows and clouds to the card. I stamped the three hearts from the stamp set with Hot Lips Ink and added Glossy Accents over them.

On the inside of the card I cut a piece of the same pattern paper as the front of the card to 1-1/4 x 3-1/2″.

For the fourth card, I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Solar White 8.5 x 11″ Cardstock to 7 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 3-1/2″ to create a card base. And a second piece of Neenah Cardstock which I diecut using the large die from the Lawn Fawn Large Slimline with Sliders Die. I Inked it with Audrey Blue Ink to create an ombre effect.

I diecut four rainbows from the 8.5 x 11 inch sheet of Simon Says Stamp Holographic Rainbow cardstock with the Simon Says Stamp Hello Rainbow die. And stamped several clouds from the Simon Says Stamp Rainbow Is My Favorite Color 6×8 inch clear stamp set onto Neenah 110lb Solar White 8.5 x 11″ Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, colored them with C1 and 0 Copic Markers and fussycut them out.

I adhered the clouds and rainbows to the card. Then stamped the sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Rainbow Is My Favorite Color 6×8 inch clear stamp set onto the card with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.I finsihed it off by adding puffy clouds and hearts from the Doodlebug Chasing Rainbows Shape Sprinkles. I also added some clear Memory Box Fairy Jewels.

On the inside of the card I adhered another rainbow diecut from the 8.5 x 11 inch sheet of Simon Says Stamp Holographic Rainbow cardstock.

For the fifth card, I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Solar White 8.5 x 11″ Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make a card base and another piece to 4 x 5-1/4″. I stenciled the sune and clouds using the Simon Says Stamp Build A Rainbow 6×9 inch stencil and Sunshine and Audrey Blue Inks.

I also stenciled the cloud border on another piece of Neenah 110lb Solar White 8.5 x 11″ Cardstock which I cut to 1-3/4 x 4″, then fussycut the top edge of the clouds. I stamped a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Rainbow Is My Favorite Color 6×8 inch clear stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto the cloud border.

Next, I used Deco Foil – Transfer Gel, a palette knife and the Simon Says Stamp Build A Rainbow 6×9 inch stencil to add a rainbow onto the card. Once it dried, I added Therm O Web RAINBOW SHATTERED Deco Foil Transfer Sheets and ran it through my lamination machine.

I adhered the cloud border to the bottom of the card panel with 3M Foam Tape. I finished it off by adding some Memory Box Fairy Jewels.

I left the inside of the card blank .

Queen and Company’s North Pole Kit

I love most of their shaker kits, but this one by far, the North Pole Kit, is my favorite Queen and Company Card Kit. It pairs great with their Glitter Foam (I used some for the hat card). The kit Includes: 25 steel dies, 6×6 paper pad, 4×6 stamp set, 11 custom toppings and 21 foam and acetate shakers. Tons of goodies to make tons of cards and they sell refills for the paper pad, shaker foam, acetate and toppings!

I started these cards by cutting some Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″. I cut three of those to create my card bases. For this first card, I diecut another piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with the Catherine Pooler Designs Holly and Berries Coverplate and adhered it to the card. (Tip: Save the outer border that is cut with this die to use later under the pattern paper. It will even out the papers so there’s no drooping.) I cut a piece of pattern paper from the North Pole Paper Pad (included in the kit) to 2-3/16 x 4-1/4″ and a red strip from the North Pole Solids Paper Pad to 2/16 x 4-1/4″ and adhered them to the card.

I assembled the tree shaker and added the toppings inside. I used the paper from the North Pole Solids Paper Pad for the tree and the trunk (saved the inside (solid) piece of the tree frame). I added some left over foam from the shakers to the tree trunk. I save all the extra foam from the shakers because they can be used on other cards.

I used the Queen and Company Sentiment Stacker Dies #1 and the North Pole Solids Paper Pad to diecut “Merry & Bright” and some Vellum for the shadow, adhered them together and to the card. I added the tree and trunk to the card and finished it off by adding some Nuvo – Crystal Drops in Autumn Red to the tree.

On the inside of the card, I added a red piece of North Pole Solids Paper Pad, measuring 1-1/8 x 4-1/4″and a piece of North Pole Paper Pad, measuring 1″x 4-1/4″ and stamped a sentiment from the stampset included in the kit and Catherine Pooler Daydream Ink. I added the solid inside piece of the tree frame to the bottom of the card.

For the second card, I cut a piece of pattern paper from the North Pole Paper Pad (included in the kit) to 2-7/8 x 4-1/4″ and a red strip from the North Pole Solids Paper Pad to 2/16 x 4-1/4″ and adhered them to the card base. I also used the die for the santa hat’s pom pom and diecut 7 from some Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to create a cute border. I thought they looked like puffy clouds and just adds some more whimsy to the card.

I assembled the hat shaker and added the toppings inside. I used red and green glitter foam from Queen and Company’s Glitter Fun Foam – Rainbow Pack to turn this santa hat into an elf hat. I saw Kristie Marcotte do this last year and thought it was adorable so I created my own. I added some left over foam from the shakers to the pom pom and edges of the hat trim once I adhered them together. this ensures that all of the hat is the same height.

I used the Catherine Pooler Happy Holidays Die and the North Pole Solids Paper Pad to diecut a sentiment and adhered to the card. I added the cute hat to the card, and finished it by adding some shimmer to the sentiment with Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle Pens. Look how sparkly that hat is!

On the inside of the card, I added a piece of North Pole Paper Pad, measuring 9/16″ x 4-1/4″ and stamped a sentiment from the stampset included in the kit and Catherine Pooler Lime Rickey Ink.

For the third card, I cut a piece of pattern paper from the North Pole Paper Pad (included in the kit) to 2-11/16 x 4-1/4″ and a red strip from the North Pole Solids Paper Pad using the scallop border die from the Honeybee Stamps Gingerbread House Add-on and adhered them to the card. This die is meant for the roof of the house but I though it made a great border!

I assembled the wreath shaker and added the toppings inside (saved the inside (solid) piece of the tree frame). I used green and red pattern paper from the North Pole Paper Pad for the wreath and bow.

I used the Queen and Company Sentiment Stacker Dies #1 and red glitter paper from Simon Says Stamp Cardstock Assortment Glitter 6×6 Pack to diecut a sentiment and Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ for the shadow, adhered them together and to the card. I added the wreath to the card, and finished it off by adding Christmas Red Ranger Stickles Glitter Glue for berries. I find this also balances the glitter in the sentiment.

On the inside of the card, I added a green piece of North Pole Solids Paper Pad, measuring 1 x 4-1/4″and a piece of North Pole Paper Pad, measuring 7/8″x 4-1/4″ and stamped a sentiment from the stampset included in the kit and Catherine Pooler Rockin Red Ink. I added the solid inside piece of the wreath frame to the top of the card.
