AWOW - Monochromatic Rainbow

Thanks so Much for stopping by!

For those who are here for the first time, 
my name is Annette Ball, 
I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in Canada.  

Welcome to Stampin' with the Bees.  

Thanks so much to Angie McKenzie for inviting me to participate in the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop!!  I was so excited to be asked!! 

Today's Theme is Monochromatic Rainbows
and I got Coastal Cabana as my colour!! One of my Favourites!!!
But honestly creating rainbow cards is my FAVE!!

I paired my Coastal Cabana with it's friends Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and the sad to see you go, sorry it took me so long to love you Pretty Peacock.

So here we go...

I cut various sized strips of Coastal Cabana, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Pretty Peacock. then glued them to a piece of whisper white in a random pattern.  Then I trimmed all the edges.  The flowers and label are from the Stitched Blooms dies and the sentiment is from Best Dressed

On this card I die cut a bunch of leaves from the Stitched Blooms dies and created this background by simply gluing them to the Basic White layer.  Then I die cut a stitched rectangle from each of the 4 colours. Then layered more blooms and the vellum leaves are from Forever Greenery and the sentiment is from Pretty Perennials.

This was actually the first card I made. I stamped the flowers in Coastal Cabana and with my blending brush offed some more Coastal Cabana.  Then I added a half inch strip of each colour. The flowers and sentiment are from Free as a Bird.  I coloured the flowers with Purple Posy and added some Wink of Stella to the flower centres, a couple twine bows and tucked in a couple bits of Polka Dot Tulle ribbon.

I hope you enjoyed my cards today and they have inspired you to stamp and create.
