Rainbow Bridge with Cas-ual Fridays Stamps

Have you ever made a pet sympathy card for someone else and felt sad because you remember your own childhood pets?  That’s what I felt creating this card.
Hello everyone, I’m back for Cas-ual Fridays stamps today sharing this Slimline Pet Sympathy Card, showcasing the Rainbow Bridge stamp set, along with the Pinked Slimline die set.
I started by stamping the images on some Neenah solar white card stock with Versamark ink.  I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set the images with my heating tool.  I fussy-cut the rainbows using my precision snips.
Next, I used some Hybrid inks and my sponge daubers to add color to the rainbows.  I wiped the excess ink using my paper towel.  By doing so, it made the colors stand out against the white embossing.
The background was made by using a clouds stencil from my collection.  I adhered the rainbow die-cuts on top using my tape runner.
The clouds were die-cut using some dies from my collection and adhered on the colored background with liquid glue.
Next, I used the Pinked Slimline die set and die-cut some 110 lb. card stock.  I also created my slimline card base, measuring 8 1/2 by 7 that I folded in half.  I adhered the pinked die-cut with liquid glue, then added the focal panel on top.
I foam-mounted the long clouds on the card and finished my design by stamping the sentiment with black ink.
I hope you like my card today.  Here are the supplies in case you’re interested:

Rainbow Bridge

I hope you’re all doing well and creating a lot of cards and other D.I.Y. projects while on lockdown.  I am honestly so thankful we have this hobby.  This is what keeps me going whilst not being able to travel and see my family.  Let us all pray together that this pandemic goes away so we can all get back to our normal routine.


My project today showcases the Rainbow Bridge stamp set.


To make my card, I stamped the rainbow image on some Bristol smooth white card stock using versamark ink.  I put some white embossing powder and heat-set with my heating tool.



I ink-blended the stamp image with various distress oxide inks in rainbow colors.  Using my precision snips, I fussy-cut the image.  I also die-cut a few elements that I needed to create my scene.

I used a stencil from my stash to create the clouds on a panel of Neenah solar white card stock.  I adhered the rainbow onto the card with liquid glue, and foam-mounted the clouds.

The sentiment was stamped with versamark ink and embossed with my heating tool.  Here’s a closer look:



To finish my design, I added the red enamel heart in the middle of the rainbow.  I really LOVE how this card turned out.  



Here’s what the Rainbow Bridge stamp set  look like:

For today’s project, I am showcasing this amazing Furr-Ever Friends stamp set.





I wanted to create a scene that is somewhat ethereal to make it look like the pets are just hanging out in heaven. I know this is where they go when they pass.


I stamped my images on Neenah solar white card stock and used my Brother Scan N Cut2 machine to die-cut my images. I die-cut another rectangular card stock and used my sun stencil to create the look of sun. I die-cut the rest of the card stock, as well as my acetate sheet to create the window for my shaker card. I added some iridescent confetti and sequins available from Kat Scrappiness to finish the design. Here is my card:
