Rainbow Valentines Gift Boxes

Greetings Crafty Friends. I find myself in a rainbow mood. I recently purchased this Eileen Hull die and challenged myself to do something fun with it for this posting for CutCardStock.com.

This blog post will detail the steps to create this fun and festive string of houses.

I started by cutting out 16 house bases using Savoy 100% Cotton Cardstock as I knew it would handle the water well. Each house required 2 pieces.

I white heat embossed this Hero Arts stamp. I used my Misti to assure consistent placement across all of the house bases.

I used Distress Inks in a rainbow of bright colors to smoosh the color on the house bases.

The roofs and the lettering were created using a variety of matching colored Poptone cardstock. I LOVE the bright colors!

The Poptone colors I used are Grape Jelly, Blue Rasberry, Lemon Drop, Orange Fizz , Granny Apple and Razzleberry. In addition I used Navy from my stash, and Red Wagon.

The houses were assembled using red adhesive tape for strength.

I used this older Stampin’ Up stamp to create the cute critters for the house fronts.

Here is a close up view of the final product. The houses were attached to a long piece of twine so the grouping could be hung up.

In addition to adding the critters, I also cut letters using the Tall Alpha Die from Altenew. I used 4 layers of the coordinating colors as well as a white layer. They were stacked and glued together to spell Be Mine.

Thanks for stopping by today. Be well. Be creative.
