MFT Release Countdown Day 3 - Rainbow Hearts

Rainbow colors, spectrum stamping...call it what you want, but it's not going anywhere it seems, so I've embraced the colors of the rainbow with two colorful cards for you today. My cards feature a new Pure Innocence image - Heart Banner, and a fun new stencil - Staggered Hearts. Complete product details, videos and links to all designers playing along with today's featured products can be found at the MFT Blog.

My first card is clean and simple. The main image and sentiment from Heart Banner are stamped in Black Licorice Hybrid ink with rainbow colors filling in those sweet hearts.I added shine to the hearts with crystal effects.

Inside I've stamped another of the Heart Banner sentiments and embellished it with a row of hearts colored to match the card front.

Here's a little trick you can use - cut a row of hearts from Love Centerpieces in the same cardstock color as your card base and then color them with Copic markers for a perfect match (to the card front).

My second card features a faux watercolor technic using the Staggered Hearts Stencil. My original plan was to stencil in colors using a clear acrylic block with dye ink smooshed on it and then spritzed with water. Well, all that did was leave the watered down ink on my stencil (and not on the open heart spaces in the stencil). So, I continued to smoosh my rainbow of ink colors onto the stencil and then took a piece of watercolor paper and pressed it on top of my wet stencil for the look you see above.

I then die cut each of the words from Love and Adore You Die-namics from my background, cut them again from gold card stock, along with a smattering of gold hearts using my Love Centerpieces Die-namics to finish the card front.

The inside is finished with a single sentiment from Smitten and another gold heart.


I hope you've enjoyed my rainbow hearts! Thanks for stopping and be sure to come back tomorrow for a fun 'gaming' experience.

I never like the stamps I have to do lots of coloring with. I could do this! This is simple and beautiful and really all that was needed for a beautiful card. Great job.

What fantastic cards! I love how clean and simple the Pure Innocence card is. I would never think to leave the image black and white and just color in a few focal pieces on a stamped image. So clever!
