Paper Smooches: Rainbow Hello & Giveaway

Hello people!  Actually, rainbow hello would be more appropriate!  I have a Paper Smooches card to share today using one of the new Hello Word dies.  This set comes with 5 different dies, and I love each one of them!   [I apologize in advance for the wonky pics!  I had a heck of time taking clear photos of this card.  I think I'll try again in the daytime.]  I had so much fun putting this card together and I love how it turned out!   


I been wanting to try this technique for a while, and this die was just what I needed.  All I did was cut the word in each color of the rainbow twice (you need good, thick cardstock for this to really work). 


Then it was just a matter of stacking and gluing them together.  The result is a beautiful 3D rainbow about 1/4" thick.  So much fun!


That's it for me today!  I hope you go check out all the new Paper Smooches goodies this month!  

And just for fun to start off the new year, I have a giveaway today:)  Just leave a comment below for a chance to win a goodie bag that includes a PS stamp set and a PS word die (and some other tidbits:).   Get your comment in by Wednesday, midnight EST and I'll post a winner on Thursday:)

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj

  1. great CAS card; thanx for the inspiration! I thought perhaps you'd used fun foam and had to read the details to see it was cardstock!

  30. How do you adhere very thin die cuts (like letters) in layers without having glue leak out?

    ReplyDelete

    1. I use a Zig Chisel Tip glue pen. It applies a very thin layer of glue and I use it for all my delicate die cuts:)
