Krazy for Kaleidacolor Kards


I have a few Birthdays coming up, so I made some colorful cards (during my scrapbooking marathon). I have wanted to use the Kaleidacolor Pad with this stamp since it came out in the Angel Company Catalog. I do however have to mention this stamp is called Partridge...whatever...it looks like a peacock so that is what I consider it!

Finally I earned this hostess set and was so excited to finally put ink to stamp! This card has alot of wow factor but not too much work. I used the Spectrum Kaleidacolor Pad and one stamp...easy peasy. I then did the same thing with the sentiment from the TAC Swirly Sayings.


One little Kaleidacolor tip...when inking the stamp, move it slightly side to side to completely ink it otherwise you get edges and sometimes white space between each color. Yes it muddies your pad a bit but well all in the name of art.

The card bases are this gorgeous 110lb cardstock that I scored when my local paper store went out of business. I got a REAM of cardstock for $15 A REAM...Yes I was doing the happy dance that day.

Rainbows are always beautiful.
This card is just that. And just in time for my birthday. :)

Hi, thanks for leaving a message on my blog. For the cupcake wrappers, I used my Scor-Pal to make score lines which result in a dry embossed (raised) effect on the opposite side. You could also use a bone folder and your fiskars trimmer by running the bone folder along the groove of your trimmer while the paper is lined up there too. Does this make sense? If not, let me know and I'll take a picture or something.
