I have been using more and more DSP since I ‘ve put my mind to it. But today, I wanted to blend, and blend and blend. I love the look of this card, a blended rainbow. The blending only took me a few minutes, but what took the most time was setting up the card and masking off where I didn’t want the blending. I sketched my card out on graph cardstock and found out that if I made 3/4 of an inch sections, I’d have exactly 9 sections for a panel on a 5×7 card. Perfect. Algebra really saved the day today. Next since I didn’t have 3/4 of a inch of purple tape, I had to use the grid paper again to create the 3/4 of a inch section. . . its hard to explain, its best to watch my video on how I did this. This card is definitely not one I’d make multiples of.
Next after some experimenting, I decided to use the heart stamp from Strong of Heart stamp set which is in the new Mini Catalog witch will be available August 3rd, 2021. I used VersaMark Ink and embossed the heart with bronze embossing powder and heat set it. Finally I decided to use the saying “Love you, friend” from the set Summer Shadows.
Remember that the Summer Shadows stamp set has coordinating dies available for free during Sale-a-bration. Don’t forget that Sale-a-bration is just around the corner as well as the start of the new Mini Catalog. This catalog is filled with fun sets for Halloween, Fall and Christmas. So many great sets and papers that I’m currently looking into a Brother Scan-n-Cut DX so that I don’t have to fussy cut so many items.
Let me know what you think of this sketch and what I did with it. Thanks

Hi Amanda, really like your card, especially the heart. You won’t go wrong getting a Brother ScanNcut DX. I have one and love it! I follow the Papered Chef (Kimberly Smith) on you tube she always has great tutorials.
