Reverse Confetti July SFYTT

Hi there!!  Today I have a card to share with you following the July SFYTT over at Reverse Confetti!!

Here is the sketch:

To create my card, I started off by adhering two coordinating patterned papers to a white card base.  I am really making an effort to work through some of my paper stash.  It's getting out of control!  LOL!  Then, I used the Double Panel Circles Confetti Cuts to diecut the two piece panel that is placed vertically on the right side of the card,  I stamped an image/sentiment from the Labeled stamp set in black ink and then diecut it with the Give Thanks Label Confetti Cuts.  I popped that up with foam tape.  For the horizontal element in the sketch, I diecut the banner from the Tag Me Confetti Cuts die set out of black cardstock and  then slid that under the sentiment image.


To finish things off, I added a scattering of black sequins.  I just love the black, white and one color combination.  It gives such a bold and graphic feel!


That's all for me today! Thanks for stopping by!!

For my card today, I started off by diecutting a piece of watercolor paper with the largest die from the Small Stitched Rectangles Stackables die set.  Then I used a rainbow of Distress Inks and ink blending tools to put down a rainbow of colors on my paper.  I dripped some clean, clear water on it and sopped it up with a paper towel.  I stamped and colored the unicorn from Critters Ever After and diecut him with coordinating dies.  Behind him, I diecut Puffy Cloud Frames diecut, and then popped him up with foam tape.  I stamped a sentiment using a stamp that came from Lawn Fawn in one of my orders.  Then, I added a scattering of sequins. and stamped tiny stars from the Critters Ever After stamp set, in a rainbow of colored before popping the panel up on a white card base using foam tape.

I have lots of Reverse Confetti favorites!  I used lots of them on my project today!  If you have visited my blog before, it's no secret that I love the RC critters... all of the stamp sets work perfectly together and allow for awesome scene building, which is one of my favorite things to do!

To create my card, I started off my watercoloring a piece of Tim Holtz Distress watercolor using my Artist Loft Watercolors from Michaels.  I stamped and diecut a bunch of peices to create my scene.  The stars of the show are the adorable little birds from Tweet Life, which I cut with coordinating Tweet Life Confetti Cuts.  You can't have a birthday party without presents and balloons which I borrowed from the Monkey Business stamp set.  I colored them and diecut them  using the Monkey Business Confetti Cuts.  The cute flag banners are from the Leaping Lions stamp set, and cut from the Leaping Lions Confetti Cuts.  And finally, cake.  You need cake.  Thanks to the Later Alligator stamp set, and coordinating Later Alligator Confetti Cuts, we have cake!

Tweet Birthday

I colored all of the pieces, then diecut them.  I arranged them how I wanted them on the watercolor panel, and then adhered some pieces with a glue pen, and lots with foam tape for some fun added dimension.  I grounded my scene with a piece of patterned paper from my stash, and added a sentiment from Monkey Business on a strip of white cardstock which I attached with a few staples.  Finally, I added a scattering of sequins to complete my party scene!

Tweet Birthday

Apart from these Reverse Confetti favorites, I also love the Butterfly Dreams stamp set and coordinating Butterfly Dreams Confetti Cuts, the Linked Garland Confetti Cuts, Too Cute To  Spook, and Puppy Love, just to name a few - you know, incase you need help shopping! *wink*

Reverse Confetti June SFYTT

Hello there!  Happy Sunday morning to you!  Today I have a card to share with you for the Reverse Confetti June SFYTT challenge!

You are one of a kind

Here is our June Sketch:

For my card today. I was most inspired by the vertical strip in the challenge, and the trio of images down the center of the sketch.  While my card does not follow the sketch exactly, it's perfectly ok for it not to!  That's the great thing about sketch challenges... turn it, flip it, pick out your favorite elements... use your creative license!

To create my card, I started off by pulling out Picked Raspberry. Mustard Seed and Salty Ocean distress inks.  One tip is to choose colors that mix well together if they should run together.  With this technique, that is very likely to happen. I taped my watercolor paper to a clipboard, and stood the board on end.  I mixed my inks with lots of water and got my brush good and soaked with ink.  I dabbed the color on the top edge of the paper, and allowed it to run down the paper, carefully catching the puddles at the bottom.  When it was dry, I cut down the panel to include by favorite parts of the watercolor pattern.  I stamped one of the large butterflies from Butterfly Dreams in black ink on white cardstock and diecut it with the coordinating Butterfly Dreams Confetti Cuts.  I popped it up on the watercolor panel with foam tape, and stamped two of the smaller butterflies on either side of it in black ink.  Then, I added a scattering of coordinating iridescent sequins before popping the panel up on a white card base using foam tape.

You are one of a kind

That's all for me today!  Be sure to check out the SFYTT blog post and link up!  You could win a $20 Reverse Confetti gift certificate!  You have until noon CST on June 29th to enter :)

Mermaid to be Friends {Reverse Confetti}

Hi there! Today I have a Reverse Confetti card to share with you using some goodies from the June release!  To start off my card, I grabbed a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor paper and some distress inks. I used an ink blending tool to add color to the paper, and then spritzed it with water to blot up some color and leave some bleached out splatter marks.  I diecut the Scalloped Tag Layer Confetti Cuts from white cardstock and adhered that to the watercolor piece with a glue pen.  Them using the Mermaid Kisses stamp set, I stamped and colored the mermaid and her little friends and then diecut them with the coordinating Mermaid Kisses Confetti Cuts.  I popped all of the pieces up with foam tape, and added some white gel pen accents and a scattering of clear sequins.

Mermaid to be Friends

I just can't get enough of this adorable little mermaid!  She is so fun to color and I know I will be using her lots and lots this summer!

I will be entering this in the current Curtain Call Challenge - Tasty Tropics!
