Welcome back!  I’ve got lots of rainbow for you today!  If you know me, you know I love rainbows and the new Feeling Lucky Toner Card Front Pack includes some fabulous rainbow loveliness!  I created three backgrounds from one of the rainbow card fronts!  Here’s a short video showing how I did it:

I started by foiling one of the card fronts with rainbow Deco Foil.  Then I used the negative sheet to foil a piece of toner paper.  Next I ran that one through a second time with some beautiful silver foil from the Color Harmony Shades of Silver.  Then I used the negative sheet from the silver to Deco Foil another panel of toner paper and ran that one through a second time with more rainbow foil!  Here’s my three panels die cut:

So pretty right??

Next I foiled some toner card fronts with purple, red, and blue using foils from the Color Harmony packs that would coordinate with the colors in the rainbow foil so I could die cut from them.

I die cut the rainbow word die from each of the purple, red and blue foiled panels, and the shadow die (2) from silver and (1) from plain old white cardstock.

I will often cut extra layers from cardstock for more dimension for my word dies… then I just stack them and glue them together … of course with the foiled die cut on top.

I colored up some unicorns from Waffle Flower and Miss Ink Stamps.

And then sprayed over the entire top with Iridescent Glitter Dust…

It created such a beautiful shimmer over the unicorns!

Then I die cut strips from the foiled toner paper… for this one I didn’t have a long enough strip of the foiled paper to cut my strip from so I cut two strips and adhered them so that the seam would be behind the word die!

See!  It’s right there behind the “b” and you can’t tell I pieced it together… where there’s a will, there’s a way!

I love this Waffle Flower sentiment set with the stamp set and word dies!  And of course I used various thicknesses of foam tape… those Gina K strips were perfect for the sentiments!

And aren’t these cute little unicorns just the sweetest??

I may or may not have a few extras… unicorns and card fronts… so you may be seeing these again soon!

Rainbows are my favorite and I had so much fun playing with these!

Oh and I almost forgot to mention the little starts I cut from each of the foiled papers using the coordinating dies from the Waffle Flower Unicorn stamp set!

That’s me for today!  I hope I inspired you to play with your foils and don’t be afraid to mix and match foils and even run your creations through more than once!
