Rainbows & Rubber Stamps

Today may be all about the wearing-of-the-green, but I prefer an expanded color palette: Like a RAINBOW!

That was my inspiration for my Lunchtime Live Crafting projects on my Facebook page on Monday, then we got LUCKY and found the pot of gold at the end of that rainbow with a FREE SHIPPING promotion today (March 17, 2021) ONLY! Don’t let it rain on your parade…gobble this up until midnight:

Now it’s time for a closer looks at some of my rainbow-inspired projects:

This one would certainly attract the leprechauns with it’s rainbow glimmer paper and sparkly sequins! And it’s so easy to make: Just cut 1/2″ strips of the glimmer paper and adhere to a piece of card stock.

My tip for this one is to lay the middle strip down FIRST so you don’t get the rainbow off-center, like I did. You could also make the rainbow fall diagonally across the card for a different look. I appreciated the timely message that after the clouds and rain comes the magnificent reminder that God was always there.

Wondering how to make the clouds? Here’s the condensed version for all the rainbow crafts I shared:

How about matching your stamping with your color blocking? The bright colors will help make this a happy birthday, because colors are magic like that.

Creating in the cracks…

Right now things are pretty exciting as we prepare for wedding number 2 at our house! My oldest daughter will be married in May and as she is miles away, we are doing a lot of phone calling. I’m SO grateful for cell phones: How many of you remember when you had to pay for long distance calls? Growning up, even calling the city 15 miles away was long distance! Thanks goodness those days are past.

I’ve been doing a little creating in the “cracks” of life: Those moments when I can grab a few previously unscheduled minutes for getting crafty as well as some big projects we had to tackle for the wedding…

Here’s what I’ve been up to:

My mom and BFF Kelli (and my sister and daughter-in-law, not picutred) helped me make 500 wedding invitations! Couldn’t have done it alone: Thanks ladies!

Kelli’s birthday was in November, but I just got around to giving her a gift, so it had to have a cute bag to go in (above left).

Back in August I volunteered to help with Teacher Appreciation week, so with the help of my husband and youngest daughter, we cranked out 100 thank you cards with a little treat inside at the beginning of April.

If you follow Creative Juice by Loni on Facebook or Instagram, you have seen a few of these (and other projects). As much as I love my blog, it’s easier to post to the other two, so while I will continue to post here, you’ll probably see me sharing more on the other two social media outlets 🙂

Meanwhile, don’t forget that FREE SHIPPING ends Friday:
