Rainbows for Erica!

Today I am taking part in an Instagram hop to send some much-needed support to @erica_cacacraft Erica has recently suffered a loss which has hit her hard, seeing her hurting has left us, fellow crafters, feeling helpless. She is such a bright star in the craft industry and we want to uplift her and show her how much she means to us all. If you’re not a follower of Erica’s, then make sure you head over to Instagram and give her a follow. She will fill your feed with all sorts of rainbow inspiration, as she loves to create with the rainbow of colours! However today, it’s our turn to fill her feed with rainbows! 

written tutorial

Rainbows for Erica Instagram Hop!

To start off, use Flirty Fuchsia with an Altenew ink blending brush to blend on to the top of a white card panel. Next ink blend on Samba, ensuring you overlap the colours to make a smooth blend. Continue using Altenew ink blending brushes as you work through the rainbow with the following Catherine Pooler Design inks:

  • Flirty Fuchsia
  • Samba
  • Bellini
  • Tiara
  • Garden Party
  • Mardi Gras
  • Suede Shoes
  • Grape Crush

Next, add a white die-cut using the Altenew Stacked Diamonds Cover die over the ink blending background with liquid adhesive. 

For the sentiment, heat emboss a sentiment from the Cherish Memories stamp set in white on black cardstock. Foam mount this onto a die-cut a white stitched heart, trimming the edge to match the edge of the heart. After this is added to the front of the card, add a selection of rainbow jewels to embellish the card.
