Lawn Fawn CHA Peek Week - Year Seven


Hello there!  I am so excited because this week, I get to share projects with you using the Spring 2017 release from Lawn Fawn!  There are SO SO SO many wonderful products coming you way!  All of the new release goodies will be showcased this week at the CHA show taking place in Phoenix, Arizona, and they will be available for purchase in mid-February.

Today, my card features the new Year Seven stamp set, along with the new Bannertastic stamp set, Zig Zag Rectangles, Perfectly Plaid Rainbow paper collection (my favorite patterned paper collection in the history of ever!), and the gorgeous new Raspberry cardstock.

To create my card, I watercolored a background on watercolor paper using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens.  When it was dry, I diecut it with the Dotted Rectangles Stackables.  I stamped, colored and diecut images from the following stamp sets:  Year Seven (new), Bannertastic (new), Party Animal, Stuck on You, So Smooth, Make Lemonade, and Plan on It: Holidays.  I added a strip of patterned paper from the Perfectly Plaid Rainbow 6x6 paper pad, arranged the pieces to create my scene, and adhered some with a glue pen and some with foam tape.  I stamped a sentiment from the Year Seven stamp set on a banner from Bannertastic, and paper pieced the little flag garland with more Perfectly Plaid Rainbow papers.  I added a scattering of iridescent sequins, and backed the panel with a Zig Zag Rectangle cut from Raspberry cardstock, then popped it up with foam tape onto a Raspberry card base.

Reverse Confetti January Blog Hop!


Hey there!  It's January 8th!  That means it's Reverse Confetti release day and all of the new release goodies are available in the Reverse Confetti Store!  It also means that we are celebrating with a blog hop!  You should have come from Amy Tsuruta's blog. If you've gotten lost, or want to start at the beginning, you can head over to the Reverse Confetti Blog.



The card that I have to share with you today uses the new Foodie Fun stamp set!  I made a mini card, taller and skinnier than an A2 size to work with the width of the new Tall Stripe Panel.  I started off with a piece of royal purple cardstock, then I cut a piece of Grape Soda cardstock using the Tall Stripe Panel.  I stamped the little bread slice from the Foodie Fun stamp set twice on kraft cardstock, diecut them with the Foodie Fun Confetti Cuts, and added some shading with Walnut Stain distress ink.  I adhered one piece the card base flat, and popped the other piece up with foam tape.  I stamped the jelly blob in Grape Soda ink, diecut it with the coordinating die, and popped that  up on the front piece of bread.  I added a few diecut hearts from the All Heart Cover Panel and XOXO Hearts Confetti Cuts, popped those up with foam tape and added a few accents with a white gel pen.  Then I stamped a sentiment from the Crazy about You stamp set just below the focal point.


Foodie Fun

To finish things off I added a twine bow and a scattering of sequins.

Countdown to Confetti - Day 2

Hey there!  Today is Day 2 the Reverse Confetti Countdown to Confetti!   All of the new release goodies that we will be featuring over the next few days will be available in the Reverse Confetti Store on January 8th!


For my card today, I created an (almost) monochromatic card using one of the new colors this month, Rose.  I love all of the new colors, but this one might just be my favorite!!

To create my card, I started off with a Rose card base.  Then I used the new All Heart Cover Panel die to cut a heart overlay, using the same color cardstock.  I adhered them together with a glue pen.  I diecut the new Love You More Tag Layer from Rose cardstock, and glued it to a Topped Off Tag diecut cut from white carstock.  I popped that up on the cardbase with foam tape.  I diecut a banner from white cardstock using the Flowers For Mom Confetti Cuts stamp set, and stamped a sentiment from the new Crazy About You stamp set using Rose ink, and popped that up on the tag with foam tape.  I diecut two sets of hearts from the XOXO Hearts Confetti Cuts die set from the True Love paper pad and layered them on top of eac hother, then threaded a button with black and white twine, and added a scattering of sequins to finish things off.

Crazy about You

I am really loving all of this gorgeous pink!

Countdown to Confetti - Day 1


Hello hello!  Today kicks off the Reverse Confetti Countdown to Confetti!  Lots of lovey dovey happening this month, and it couldn't be cuter!!  All of the new release goodies that we will be featuring over the next few days will be available in the Reverse Confetti Store on January 8th!



I am just loving the color scheme this month!  Pink and red are my favorite colors, and I squealed with delight when I opened my box!  A beautiful range of pinks and a gorgeous new red, just in time for Valentine's Day!

For my project to day, I made a little ensemble of a card and matching tiny treat box!  Below, I will go into more detail about how I created them!!


Cured Ensemble

First up, the card!  Squeeeee!  Piggies!  Gosh, I love them!!  And this amazing new stencil!  It's going to get a lot of use around here!!

To create my card, I started off with a piece of watercolor paper. I find that watercolor paper blends ink more evenly, so I prefer to use it when I am doing any sort of background inking, even if I do not use any water.  I placed the new Hearts stencil on the watercolor paper, and used the new Piggy Bank ink to create an ombre background.  I concentrated more color in the upper right corner, and lightened it as I worked left and towards the bottom of the paper.  Then I added a strip of polka dot patterned paper from the new True Love Paper Pad.  I stamped, colored and diecut the adorable piggies from the new Cured stamp set.  Above them, I added a diecut sentiment from the new XOXO Hearts Confetti Cuts,  and a few diecut hearts from the same die set.  The smaller hearts are from the XOXO Hearts Confetti cuts, and the bigger heart is the negative from the All Heart Cover Panel.  I added some accents with a white gel pen, and popped the panel up on a Flamingo cardstock base.

Cured

Then I created a matching tiny treat box using the new Goodie Box Confetti Cuts.  I used all of the same elements from the card.  The patterned paper squares are cut from the new Goodie Box Additions Confetti Cuts, as well as the little tag, stamped with a sentiment from the Cured stamp set.

See you again tomorrow!!

Reverse Confetti December SFYTT


Hello there!  Today I have a card to share with you for the Reverse Confetti December SFYTT!

Here is December's sketch:


And here is my card:


December SFYTT 

To create  my card, I started off with a piece of watercolor paper.  I masked off the bottom with a few post it notes, and used an ink blending tool and ink to create an ombre effect on the of portion of the watercolor paper.  I like to use this type of paper because I find that the ink blends better for me than on smooth cardstock.  I diecut the new Bar Tag Layer from patterned paper from the Warm Hearts paper pad, and then cut a solid tag from Mist cardstock using the Topped Off Tag Confetti Cuts.  I stamped a sentiment from the new You're So stamp set in Navy ink, and diecut the word "fabulous" from Navy cardstock several times, gluing them on top of eachother for dimension.  I used the You're So Confetti Cuts die set.  I added a banner cut from more Warm Hearts patterned paper, popped the tag up using foam tape, and then added a button and scattering of wooden stars to finish off the panel, then popped the whole thing up on a Navy card base using foam tape.

There is still time to play along with the December SFYTT!  You could win a Reverse Confetti gift certificate!!
