Rainbow Week - Day 3

Hi there!! Its another absolutely gorgeous day today. I'm about to go out and trim some bushes that probably don't need it but I want to spend time in the sun. I was thinking about sitting out there and colouring but would probably nod off in the heat......

I'm back with my third day of Rainbow Week, where I'm spending seven days (just saying that in my head reminds me of The Ring movie.....) celebrating rainbow colours and showing you all the many rainbow/geometric cards I've slowly made while in lockdown.

Today is yet another card inspired by the fabulous Laura Bassen and her very funny and creative YouTube videos. I used the same rectangle dies as my card yesterday (from Neat and Tangled 'Triangle Box Dies') but this time I cut and arranged them differently:

So for this card I paired up light and dark of each colour. I glued the lighter, smaller rectangle die-cut (which is the same length but slimmer in width) in the middle of the larger rectangle. Once they were all dry I cut them all down the middle length-ways.

After once-again spending forever working out a design, I glued each piece in this pattern on a piece of white cardstock and cut carefully around the edges. It was then put on a piece of white foam on the card front. I wanted to keep the rest of the card clean so used this stamp from The Stamp Market 'One of a Kind' which was the perfect shape for a corner. I stamped it a few times with Versafine Onyx ink and then finished off with my Studio Katia Pearls.

So glad you've been enjoying these rainbow cards and maybe they've inspired you to make some too. If so I would love to see them. My instagram is: shona.chambers and you can email me too on if you'd like me to see a blog post.

I'm off out into the sunshine, enjoy your day and please stay safe!!



  1. I'm enjoying your rainbow creations Shona!
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Another wonderful rainbow Shona - enjoy the sun - I didn't really get out today at all - I have plumbing problems, so focused on them this morning, and then stitched this afternoon, sitting in the sun in my lounge.
    Stay safe

  3. I commented on IG and I'm going to comment it again. I would think that Laura Bassen would be so proud and impressed that she inspired this card. You've really channeled her perfectly and clearly you have the talent to do so. This is simply, amazingly gorgeous. Love geometrics and this and your other two cards make my heart happy.
