Want to see the kit in action? Mindy has created a video to help walk you through the elements of the kit, and shares a card featuring some of the products. Watch the video below, or on YouTube.
This kit is valued at $70, but is an incredible deal at $34.99. It is available in limited quantities – grab yours before they are gone!
To complement the kit, we've created some additional products which coordinate with the main theme. You can keep the colors flowing and the friendship strong with these great add-ons!
First up is another fun 6x6 cling stamp - Floral Color Wheel Bold Prints. Mix a rainbow of colors to paint it like a color wheel, or use it to create a floral background.
United People Bold Prints is a fun, abstract take on the human rainbow.
Speaking of rainbows - Rainbow HeroScape is so much fun to create with! Mix and match the solid arches with the messages, or stamp the message right on top of the rainbow arches. The clouds and other elements are fun additions to this 6x8 clear stamp set.
Rainbow Infinity Dies coordinate nicely with Rainbow HeroScape, but are equally great to use all on their own! Having separate dies for each rainbow arch allows for easy die cutting of your rainbows, with less waste.
Color Me Words is a mix and match set that can be used to fill the bucket of someone special in your life, or to lift up yourself! Some of these empowering words can be used on a variety of projects, art journal pages, planners - you name it!
One our our favorite kind of hugs is a Paper Hug! This is a Stamp & Cut XL set, which means it includes a 4x6 clear stamp set as well as the dies, all packaged together. Create a warm hug right on your card, and send if off to a friend who can use one!
Now let's take a look at our standalone dies. First is Rainbow Window Fancy Die, with it's fun combination of clouds and rainbows. Make a cut out piece to attach to your project, or die cut it right into your card panel with this 2-piece set.
Together Window Fancy Die can be the hands of inclusion, the hands of solidarity, the hands of family or the hands of friendship!
Next is Rays of Color Window Fancy Die, a coverplate that can be used in a variety of ways. Paper-piece the openings into a rainbow array, or simply place it over an ink-blended background. It's great as a shaker card, too!
Rays of Color Stencil is the same general pattern as the previous die, but in a 6x6 stencil! Ink blend a rainbow of colors through this stencil, use with pastes, or incorporate it into whatever creative stencil techniques you may dream up!
Sun Flare Window Fancy Die is a different take on the coverplate die and the same pattern as the stencil included in the main kit!
With this release, we also have new Colors of Earth Paper! The pack comes with 2 half sheets (5.5" x 8.5") of each of five colors of cardstock. It's great with the products in this month's release, and also fun to use with our Hero Lifestyle paper dolls!
And rounding out the release, we have two gorgeous new colors of Liquid Watercolor - Terracotta and Coffee. Each are available individually, but we've also combined with with existing Cocoa to create our Skin Tone Liquid Watercolor Set.
