Hi, I’m here on a Friday because I had so much fun with the Rainbow Funshine die set by Trinity Stamps and ran out of time to get the video tutorial ready for my normal Thursday. I team the new Trinity Stamps die with a Catherine Pooler sentiment stamp set – Shine Bright. And use my favourite bright vibrant inks for all the colouring. Watch the video just below and read on for the written tutorial.

- Firstly, die cut the Rainbow Funshine dies from watercolour card and use bright Catherine Pooler inks to watercolour each strip of the rainbow.
- Colours I use: Rockin Red, Orange Twist, Limoncello, Mardi Gras, Suede Shoes and Grape Crush
- Colour the sun in Tiara, and the heart in Rockin Red. Watch the video above to see a quick and easy way to colour the two small dots and smile with Midnight ink. (2:02)
- Next, colour two pieces of watercolour card with Fiesta Blue ink. One card is a standard A2 (4 1/4” x 5 1/2”) and one card is 1 1/2” x 5 1/5”.
- Stamp the sentiment with embossing ink, and heat emboss with Alabaster embossing powder. (Don’t forget to use the anti-static Magic Powder Bag first).
- Use foam tape to adhere the rainbow to the sentiment panel, and foam mount to the A2 Fiesta Blue card.
- Adhere the two uncoloured clouds, red heart and smiley face to the sun using liquid glue.
- As this watercolour is heavy, I need a strong card base to support the card layers. Not Your Mama’s 130lb cardstock is strong, and most importantly it will not sag with the weight of the XL watercolour card.
- Trim off the overhanging sun rays to finish the card.
I had many more ideas on how to use this Rainbow Funshine die set. I was inspired with hundreds of ways to use this one die set during the making of this one card. Some I’m not sure are actually possible… In conclusion, don’t be surprised when you see more of this rainbow soon.
