Hi there everyone!

Today’s card features the Ocean Borders Stamps and Dies! I had so much fun creating this wavy, cloudy, swirly rainbow with Distress Oxide Inks. I have made and attached a quick process video including all the details and supplies used for the card. I hope you’ll stick around and check it out.

Thanks for watching! A detailed supply list can be found at the end of this post.



The individual rainbow waves were created by stamping the small border stamp from the Ocean Borders Stamp Set onto Bristol Cardstock. I treated the paper with an anti static tool before stamping the design in Versamark Ink. I coved the wet, sticky ink with white embossing powder and heat set it with a heat tool until nice and smooth. After using the coordinating die to cut the top of each wave, I cut the bottom off so each piece would be the same size. The Distress Oxide Inks used were: Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, Cracked Pistachio, Broken China, and Wilted Violet. I smoothed on each color, making the bottoms darker and richer than the tops.



Each wave was adhered carefully at first so that I could adjust the spacing between each one. Once I had the desired look, I pressed them firmly to make sure they were stuck down well. A small sliver of foam tape was added to the slim black card stock. I stamped “birthday” from the Hooray Stamp Set onto the right side, leaving room for the scripty Happy Die Cut. For the beautiful “happy” die cut, I cut 2 layers of coaster board and 1 in silver glitter paper. I adhered all three layers together with Nuvo Liquid Adhesive and then added them to the lefthand side of the black card stock strip. The finishing touch was a few Bokeh Lights embellishments. I added these no hole, flat sequins with a tiny bit of Nuvo Adhesive.


I appreciate you stopping by today!
