Today's card features two Stampin' Up! sets: Party Wishes (wood – 140651, clear – 140961) and Sweet Stack (photopolymer 138948) with the Rainbow Strip Flip technique.
The rainbow strip flip technique is a technique I haven't used in a long time and now it is new again for my customers.
Rainbow Strip Flip is a technique that uses a Spectrum stamp pad or create your own using Classic Stampin’ Ink Refills and white felt as I did. Actually the Faux Spectrum is also a technique that is poplular right now. And if you look close you will see that I used the Faux Spectrum to create the background for the make a wish balloon and to stamp the happy birthday as well.
1. Create a faux Spectrum Ink Pad by laying two piece of white felt on top of each other (be sure to place a piece of Saran Wrap or other plastic material under the felt to protect your table). Then using your ink refills apply ink in ¾” wide stripes to the felt leaving about 1/8” between each color. This is your stamp pad.
2. Use rubber brayer to apply ink horizontally to both pieces of the Shimmery White Cardstock. Trim the larger piece to 3 ½” x 2 ½”, then cut into 4 vertical strips. Flip every other strip and adhere with Multipurpose glue to Whisper White Cardstock.
