Reverse Confetti April Blog Hop!

Hello there!!  Today is the Reverse Confetti April Blog Hop!  I have three projects to share with you today!

You should have come here by way of Amy Tsuruta's blog, If you've gotten lost or want to start at the beginning, head on over to the Reverse Confetti blog.

Reverse Confetti will be retiring lots of products to make room for the new amazingness that is headed your way! My first two projects feature the So Very Spring Quick Card Panels which are on the retirement list.  All of the QCP sets will be retired, so get your favorites while you can!  You can see a full list of retiring products on the Reverse Confetti blog!

For my first Card, I started off with a Stone card base and diecut the Striped Frame Confetti Cuts from Stormy cardstock.  In the center of the frame, I diecut one of the So Very Spring Quick Card panels.  I stamped and colored images from the Unicorn Wishes stamp set and popped them up using foam tape.  A sentiment from the same stamp set was stamped on the banner diecut from the Tag Me Confetti Cuts die set.

The QCP add a fun pattern to the card without having to cut into a full sheet of paper!  They are great for little bits of patterned paper!!

For my second project, I chose another pattern from the So Very Spring Quick Card Panels set.  I diecut the All Framed Up Confetti Cuts from white cardstock and added foam tape the other outer three frames.  Running foam tape along the back not only adds dimension,  but it also keeps all of the frames nested inside eachother nicely.  I glued the Quick Card Panel to the center of a white card base, then popped the frame up on top of it.  I stamped and  colored images from several stamp sets - You Lift Me Up, All About Ewe and Monkey Business. I adhered them to the card base with a glue pen and foam tape, and stamped a sentiment from Monkey Business on a banner diecut.  White gel pen accents finish things off.

Happy Birthday

I just love how all of the Reverse Confetti animal stamp sets work together.  They make scene building a breeze and I think the are all just extra cute!

And finally a project using the newest Reverse Confetti Release!   To create this card, I started off with a Sand card base.  I stamped the dashed line image from Elemental Stripes in Sand ink along the bottom of the card.  Then I stamped images from All About Ewe in sand ink.  I gave them a quick dry with my heat tool to make sure there wouldn't be an ink smearing with the copics.  I popped them images up with foam tape, and stamped a sentiment from Easter Blessings in Sand ink.  A scattering of sequins, some white gel pen accents, and a strip of patterned paper from the True Love paper pad finishes off the card.

Easter Blessings

I wanted to create a softer Easter card, so I got a little outside of my bright colors and black ink comfort zone.  LOL!   The strip of patterned pink paper pulls in the pale pink of the hearts in the design and adds a little more balance.

Easter Blessings

That's it for me today!  Be sure to head to the next stop on the hop is Amy Sheffer!

I love your card designs and use of bright colours! Your Easter sheep card is really sweet. I pinned one for the way you used the frame dies. Lovely work!
