Sending Sunshine {Reverse Confetti}


Hello there!  Today, I have another card to share with you using new products from the July Reverse Confetti release!

To create my card, I started off by watercoloring a bit of Magenta ink onto watercolor paper.  When it was dry, I stamped a sentiment from the new Mahalo stamp set in black ink, then splattered the panel with some black watercolor.  I stamped and colored the sun from Weather it Together and diecut it with the coordinating Weather it Together Confetti Cuts, then popped it on top of a few clouds from the Take Flight stamp set.  I added a scalloped border to the left side of the panel using the Edge Essentials Confetti Cuts, and then added a strip of patterned paper from the new Under the Umbrella paper pad.  I mounted the panel on a white card base, then added a bow using Charcoal Twine.  

Mahalo

To make the sentiment pop a bit more, I added an outline using a white gel pen.  It is a simple detail but really makes a huge difference.

Mohalo

I will be entering this card in the current Fusion Challenge, which is summer themed! :)



Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Reverse Confetti July Blog Hop


WOOHOO!  It's new release day over at Reverse Confetti!  All of the new goodies that we have been showcasing over the last few days are available NOW in the Reverse Confetti store and at your favorite retailers! :)


The card that I have to share with you today showcases the new No Tomorrow stamp set and coordinating No Tomorrow Confetti Cuts along with a bunch of previously released products.

To create my card, I started off with a horizontal A2 card base of Premier Polar White cardstock.  I diecut the Striped Frame Cover Panel from black cardstock, then, used Pistachio ink to add some green ombre to the center of the frame before gluing it down.  I stamped and colored the adorable dinosaurs from No Tomorrow, then diecut them with the No Tomorrow Confetti Cuts.  To add to my scene, I used the balloons and presents from Monkey Business, the banner from Leaping Lions, and the cake from Later Alligator.  I stamped and colored those, then diecut them with their coordinating dies.  I glued some pieces down with a glue pen and popped some up with foam tape.  I stamped a sentiment from No Tomorrow on a banner diecut from the Tag Me Confetti Cuts set, cut from Premier Polar White cardstock.  To finish things off, I added some accents with a gel pen, and a scattering of iridescent sequins.


No Tomorrow

One of the things that I love most about the critter series from Reverse Confetti is the ability to mix and match across sets.  Because they are drawn in the same super cute whimsical style, the possibilities are really endless!

No Tomorrow

 I will be back soon with more projects using the July release, but there is still LOTS more to see!  The rest of the design team has more cuteness to share with you! Be sure to hop along and leave some love! :)  Thanks for stopping by!!

Countdown to Confetti - Day 3


Hello there!  Welcome to day 3 of the Countdown to Confetti with Reverse Confetti!  All of the new products being featured will be available on July 8 at the Reverse Confetti store and at all of your favorite retailers!


Today, my card mixes some old and new.  I paired the adorable little Mouse Mail mice with the new Berry Sweet stamp set and coordinating Berry Sweet Confetti Cuts.  To create my card, I started off by ink blending some of the new Coral ink onto a piece of the new Premier Polar White cardstock with an ink blending tool.  I used the Lotsa Dots stencil over top with more Coral ink for a tone on tone pattern.  I stamped and colored the mice with Copic markers, along with the giant strawberry. For the berry leaves, I inked the top part in the Grass ink, and the bottom in the new Parakeet ink.  To ground my critters, I added a strip of patterned paper from the new Under the Umbrella patterned paper pad, and stamped a sentiment from the Berry Sweet stamp set.  I popped the panel up on a Salsa cardstock base.  For some added interest, I added some score lines to the bottom of the cardbase and a pinked edge border cut from black cardstock using the Edge Essentials Confetti Cuts.  Finally, I added a bow using Charcoal twine, and added some white gel pen accents.


Berry Sweet

If you are familiar with the Mouse Mail stamp set, the little girl mouse is holding a letter.  I inked her up, and used a baby wipe to clean the ink off of the letter so it would not stamp.  I diecut her with the coordinating die, and used my scissors to trim around her little arm.

Berry Sweet

I used a black glaze pen for the eyes and noses on the mice, as well as the seeds on the strawberry.  Little details like this make all the difference! :)

Countdown to Confetti - Day 2


Hello hello!  Welcome to day 2 of the Countdown to Confetti with Reverse Confetti! Today we are featuring products that will be available for purchase on July 8th in the Reverse Confetti store and at all of your favorite retailers!


My card today features a bunch of new goodies!  To create my card, I started off by cutting a A2 card base from the new Premier Polar White cardstock.  Then, from the same cardstock, I diecut the new Squared Off Cover Panel and adhered that flat to the card base.  I diecut one of the new Pierced Round Top Layers from Premier Polar White cardstock to put behind that adorable castle, princess and dragon, all from the new Magical Day stamp set.  I can't even handle the cuteness!  I stamped and colored the images using Copic markers.  The new white cardstock works beautifully with Copic makrers,  YAY!  I diecut some white clouds using the Take Flight Confetti Cuts die set. and arranged my little scene, then adhered everything with foam tape.  I stamped a sentiment from Magical Day on the smalled Pierced Round Top Layers die set, and finished things off with some white gel pen accents, and the Sakura Stardust Pen for some added sparkle.

Magical Day

I can't get enough of Premier Polar White.  And I love all of the white on white on white on this card.  LOL!  How cute is that little dragon with his pot belly?!

Magical Day

There's lots more to see today!  Comment here and visit the other design team members who have so much fun to share with you!  There is another set being showcased today, No Tomorrow, and I will be sharing a project with you using that set for the blog hop on the 8th, but I am sure you will get a glimpse of it today from the other team members! :)
