Hi there! Today starts the Countdown to Confetti! All of the new Reverse Confetti products that are featured here today will be available in the Reverse Confetti store on June 8th!
Today, I have projects to share with you using two new sets this month, and a few other new goodies. My first pair of projects feature my favorite of the release, Mermaid Kisses. To make my card, I started off watercoloring a piece of watercolor paper to create a underwater background for my scene. When it was dry, I stamped, and colored the mermaid, jelly fish, plants and shells from the stamp set, and diecut them with the coordinating Mermaid Kisses Confetti Cuts. I decided where I wanted all of the pieces, and then popped them up with foam tape onto the watercolor panel, then I stamped a sentiment from the same set in the top left corner of the panel. I added white gel pen accents, and popped the panel up on a white card base using more foam tape.
I created a matching tag using the Mermaid Kisses stamp set, and coordinating Confetti Cuts, along with the Topped Off Tag Confetti Cuts, and the brand new Scalloped Tag Layer die. I diecut the scalloped layer from light aqua cardstock, then cut the Topped Off Tag from a piece of acetate and a piece of white cardstock. I adhered the acetate to the scalloped layer, then added a wall of foam tape around the edge of the tag, dumped in some sequins, and then adhered the white tag to the back to create my shaker. I used all of the same elements from my card to create the rest of my tag.
My second project today uses the new Seaside stamp set and coordinating Seaside Confetti Cuts. To create this card, I used Distress Ink and an ink blending tool to sponge some ink on the top part of a white card base. I diecut the new Starburst Cover Panel from yellow card stock to create my starburst sky. I used the Edge Essentials Confetti Cuts to create a wavey border on one of the new By the Sea Quick Card Panels. I stamped the cute whale from the Seaside stamp set on grey ink, then diecut him with the Seaside Confetti Cuts dies. I popped him up on the panel using foam tape. To finish my scene, I stamped the checkered clouds from the Weather it Together stamp set, and diecut them with the Weather It Together Confetti Cuts. Finally, I stamped a sentiment from the Seaside stamp set onto a hand cut banner and added some fun iridescent sequins to the water.
I love adding little accents like white gel pen, Copic Marker dots, googly eyes and sequins to add more life to my card. Those finishing touches are my favorite! :)
