ROYGBIV = Happy people!

ROYGBIV = Happy people! 1

Stacy Cohen here,
If you’ve seen my craft projects over the years, you know that I love to use rainbow colors.  There’s something about the good ol’ ROYGBIV that makes me so happy!   Here are a couple of rainbow cards I made using Queen & Co. products.
 
First up is a card featuring a heart with a cascade of rainbow buttons.   I first cut out a heart from white cardstock and used that as my base for adhering the buttons in a rainbow-colored pattern.  I filled in the tiny empty spots with color-coordinated Petite Posies.  Once the heart was filled in, I adhered it to my card front.
 
 
It might be hard to see, but I die-cut a “celebrate” sentiment and adhered it to the bottom right corner of the card.  I wanted to keep it subtle so as not to distract from the rainbow.
 
 
The second card is fairly clean and simple.  I used one of the butterfly dies from the Shaped Shaker Butterfly kit to cut butterflies from the Delightful Dots rainbow pad.
 
I adhered them to my card in a column in rainbow order.
 
 
I finished off the card by adding a Pom Flower to the center of each butterfly.
 
 
Hope your day is full of rainbows and unicorns and all that good stuff!

Hello!
Michele Boyer here today sharing two cards created with my favorite shaker kits from Queen & Co.
 
 
The Candles Shaker Kit is a versatile set, easily tailored to a male or female recipient by simply changing the shaker toppings and any other embellishments. I made a super-girly card using pink hearts from Fimo Fun, Pops, Posies and Pastel Diamonds.
 
 
To create the mat beneath the blank card front, I cut a piece of patterned paper from Heart Throb Mat Stack to 5 ½” x 4 ¼”. I measured and marked a ½” border on each side then used a craft knife to remove the inside rectangle before adhering over the acetate. Before adhering the blank card front, I removed 1/8” from each side then adhered over the acetate and patterned frame, carefully aligning the candle openings.
 
On top of my card front, I adhered a few Pom Poms, flower-shaped sequins and a sentiment by Paper Smooches.
 
 
 
My second card uses my favorite butterfly from Shaped Shaker Butterflies and Heart Throb Mat Stack.
 
 
After filling the shaker shape with pink Donuts and Pastel Diamonds, I adhered the acetate then used the coordinating die (also included in the kit) to die-cut a dotted cover. For a bit of variety, I adhered a second die-cut butterfly, a few pink Rivets and a die-cut sentiment from Taylored Expressions. I love that dies are included with the butterfly foam shapes as they can be used with the shaker pieces or without.
