Another Tutorial! : )

Good morning and happy Wednesday to you! I have survived two whole days of work! I am not used to getting up so early in the morning....and I have to admit it... those late nights of crafting are kickin' my butt! I am pooped!

I have another tutorial for you today using one of JustRite's new font sets, Myriad Pro. It is such a classic sleek font! I used 50 pt to stamp the word, Smile on my clouds with Pure Poppy ink. (Cloud die and ink are by Papertrey Ink). I added Crystal Effects to the clouds and sprinkled translucent Martha Stewart glitter on them. The card base uses a scalloped Spellbinder's die. I cut a circle at 3 3/4 and embossed it with the Swiss Dots folder.
My glitter obsession continues......... : )

If you would like to make your very own rainbow.....because who doesn't like rainbows? I have step by step directions to making your own!
Remember the rainbow colors? ROYGBIV? Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. For my rainbow I didn't use indigo.....which is a dark blue. I then cut 6 circles. I have listed the sizes I used.
Stack your circles leaving just a bit peeking at the top of each color.

Cut the bottom off of your circle stack!

Use a 2 3/8 Spellbinder's circle and some low tack artist's tape to hold the die in place. You might have to run it through a couple of times because your stack is thick. You may even have to finish the job with scissors!
This is what it looks like when you cut the bottom of your rainbow. It looks pretty good right? BUT not as good as if it had glitter.........riiiiiiight????
Of course you agree with me whole heartedly! So grab your tray, glitter, and Crystal lacquer!

Apply a thin coat of the Crystal lacquer over the entire rainbow with your finger. Then sprinkle A LOT of glitter over it!
Shake off the excess glitter......and voila! A pretty, glittery, rainbow!!!


Be sure to check out the JustRite blog for the other DT gals that created projects using the new Myriad Pro font!!!
Thanks sooooo much for stopping by for a visit! I love reading your comments......It makes my day! (Yes, I am pretty pathetic......*sigh*)
