Rainbow Production...

Hello & Happy Monday Everyone!
How was your weekend? Mine was good...
Still lots to do around here, so crafting was not on the list...
I did make some projects the week before, so at least
I'm ahead of the game! 😀
I also have last weeks holiday card to share with you -
I just haven't had time to take a picture...
With school ending in 2 1/2 weeks - YES I'm still counting down!
I've got lots going on - I just wish they would spread out
some of these events for school instead of waiting til
the last few weeks to get them all crammed in there!
It is what it is I guess!! LOL

Today, I wanted to share a MASS PRODUCTION
of cards I did a week or so ago... These were the
 cards I made for the winners of my Birthday week
blog candy - 😊

Well... technically it started with this Birthday card - 
I was making it for school, when I realized... HELLO!!! You can
totally mass produce this card and make Thank You's for the winners...
And, so I did! 😉 I used the Misti to create all of them - without
it, I probably wouldn't have tried to do it... And a
simple Stamp set I found at my local $1 store! YUP!
My local Dollar Tree actually had some stamps hanging up
and I couldn't just leave them there.. right? - I'm so glad I bought them
because for $1... it was totally worth it to make these cards -

These are the other pretty cards I made for the winners -
Each one is in a different color combo set - but all made with the same 
stamp set - Oh... and they ALL SHIMMER Too!!! 😍

Here they all are in their glory! hahaha
Everything was stamped on white CS, using Versamark ink -
I then added some Super Fine White Embossing powder & heat
set them - after I heat set them I used distress inks & some blending
tools to color over the area - Put them through my Big Shot with
a Stitched Card Mat Die - Then Sprayed them with
some shimmer spritz - letting them dry

While they dried, I cut out the word dies (3 x's) each word
and attached the word layers, so they could stand out on the card
Then I created sentiments in my Silhouette Program, making them
match the color of their cards &
spacing them out, so they could be die cut out 
After attaching everything to black CS - I thought they all
needed a little BLING! So I added tiny Clear gems & 
matching colored gems - 
It took me 2 days to make these - because I had to
stop several times due to everyday life stuff! 😊
Otherwise, it probably could have been done in one evening!
