Step 3: Start by placing the smallest arch of the rainbow onto the canvas. For me here it was the purple colored felt. Sew into place using simple straight stitches. Repeat this for each color of felt.
Step 4: Using the smaller embroidery scissors trim the excess felt to shape the rainbow bottom. I initially cut all of the felt strips the same length, and trimmed them to size accordingly after sewing them onto the canvas.
Step 5: The clouds. Handcut the clouds from some white felt sheets. Cut four cloud shapes per rainbow, two smaller than the others and adhere them onto the canvas using generous amounts of fabric adhesive.
This little canvas ALWAYS makes me smile. It is the most cheerful item I have ever made. I have 6 of these listed for sale in my shop here. And all the kids who see it absolutely LOVE it!!

The polar vortex had us trapped indoors for a few days (-45F wind chills!) and so I thought it was the perfect time to try this new to me app called Capture by YouTube. I use it on my iPad, but you could easily use it on your iPhone as well. I don’t think an android version is out yet though.
I pulled supplies out for this video and decided to shoot the video in the living room (the light is great in there) and since we had just 45 minutes before nap time ended for the younger one, I really didn’t have time to clean up the dining table (really, who likes cleaning!) so I decided to shoot this video while sitting on the floor.
My daughter wanted to join in and I thought why not? This was going to be a simple card and she could easily make one too!

In the video I use this butterfly squeeze punch by Fiskars, the new Amplify scissors by Fiskars, gelatos by Faber Castell, gesso (surface prep) by liquitex and ‘thank you’ stickers that I bought at Target.
PS: I have a winner to announce from last weeks Lori Whitlock blog hop. Thanks so much for all the love you left at my blog. The random winner is Virginia Payne!! Virginia, look out for an email from me shortly.
ETA: Adding this card to the Fusion Card Challenge.
Happy Monday crafty friends 🙂
