Eastern Medallions in a Pastel Rainbow

Yesterday I viewed yet another inspiring video tutorial by Jennifer McGuire - where does that lady get all her phenomenal ideas from ?

In just one video she demonstrated many different ways of creating rainbow themed cards using different styles and techniques promoting products by various well known and loved brands.   Her videos always inspire me to look at my own Stampin' Up! stash to see what I have that could be used in a similar way.  Which is how this little card came about. 

As I haven't requested permission to share Jennifer's video here, if you hop over to her YouTube channel, you will find it under the title "Rainbow Techniques".

Stampin' Up!s Eastern Medallions Thinlits are incredibly versatile and by using them you can create various combinations of die-cut accents with which to embellish cards and 3D projects.  I put together this pretty medallion after selecting a combination of three little dies.

Now my little rainbow medallion is a mere fraction of the size of the one demonstrated in the video tutorial that I watched, but I have to say I really do love it.  After all, small is beautiful - right ?

I worked in three inks to create this pretty little pastel rainbow - Flirty Flamingo (soon to retire), So Saffron and Pool Party. 

It's very difficult to see from the photos but I stacked my rainbow medallion on three die cut circles of the same size, all in Flirty Flamingo card stock and layered the stack on a die cut scallop circle of the same colour.

For the clear heat embossed word sentiment, I used my Lovely Words Thinlits Dies, again stacking the die cut on Whisper White die cuts to create a white halo to really make the sentiment pop.

I am pleased with my card and grateful to JM and her contemporaries for sharing their ideas and techniques which help broaden my own repertoire of cards.  This is one card that I shall definitely be recreating.  I think it would be a great project for a card class.  Hmm ....... now that has given me food for thought !

Watch this space folks !

Yesterday we had torrential rain which put paid to any plans we had for getting out in our garden which is in need of some TLC.  Fingers crossed today brings better weather for us all.

Thanks for looking and bye for now.

  1. I too love Jennifer McGuire and what she comes up with in her video tutorials. I love your take on her rainbow technique Linda and you can just see that you have put this on circles of Flirty Flamingo. Love it, love it! I will definitely be popping over to JM's channel to catch up on the techniques I have missed.
