Countdown to Confetti Day 3 - Floral Gem & Sentimental Gems

Hello there!  Welcome to day 3 of the Countdown to Confetti with Reverse Confetti!  All of the new goodies that we will be showcasing over the next few days will be available for purchase in the Reverse Confetti store and at your favorite retailers on March 8th!

My cards today use the new Floral Gem and Sentimental Gems stamp sets, the new Love & XOXO Confetti Cuts dies and the super cute Darling Dots paper pad!

To create my first card, I started off by watercoloring a background using shades of purple Distress inks, drying in between each layer with a heat tool.  When my watercolor was dry, I white heat embossed the frame image from the Floral Gem stamp set and colored it in with my Prismacolor pencils.  Then, I diecut the new Love & XOXO Confetti Cuts die three times from white cardstock and stacked them together with a glue pen.  To finish things off, I added a scattering of clear sequins and popped the panel up on a white card base using foam tape.

I love how the sequins take on the color of the watercolor underneath.  Drying between each layer gives such a fun and different look to the watercolor!  LOVE!

Floral Gem

For my second card, I started off with a Stone card base.  On top of that, I diecut the Big Stripes Cover Panel from some Darling Dots patterned paper.  I stamped and colored the Floral Gem frame image with Copic markers and stamped a sentiment from the Sentimental Gems stamp set in the center, then diecut it with the coordinating Floral Gem Confetti Cuts dies.

Sentimental Gems

I popped the frame image up in the center of the card with foam tape, and added some white gel pen accents to finish off my card.

Sentimental Gems

That's all for me today,  but be sure to hop along with the Crew to see what they have to share with you today, and comment along the way for a chance to win a Reverse Confetti gift certificate!  Thanks for stopping by, and see you tomorrow! :)
