Reverse Confetti June Blog Hop


Hello there!!  It's the 8th of the month, and that means that it is time for the Reverse Confetti Creative Hop!  This month, I did some watercoloring with Distress inks and pulled out one of my RC faves, Moon Men!

To create my card, I started off by watercoloring a background for my sky.  I used Chipped Sapphire, Blueprint Sketch and Salty Ocean Distress inks.  Then that was dry, I splattered on some silver watercolor using the Gansai Tambi Starry Colors watercolors.  I stamped and colored the space ship, fire trail and a planet from Moon Men with Copic markers, and then diecut them with the coordinating Moon Men Confetti Cuts dies.  I popped them up with foam tape where I wanted them on the background.  Then, using the Seeing Stars Confettti Cuts dies, I diecut a trio of stars from white cardstock and adhered them with a glue pen.

I stamped a sentiment from the set onto white cardstock and trimmed it down with my paper trimmer, and popped that up with foam tape as well.  To finish things off, I added some white gel pen accents and some dark blue crystals from my stash.

That's all for me today, but be sure to hop along to see what else the Confetti Crew has to share with you today!!  Thanks so much for stopping by! :)

Spellbinders x Jane Davenport Artomology Collection

Hello there!  The Spellbinders team kindly asked if I would like to create with their new Jane Davenport products, and of course, I said yes!  You can see the full line of products here.  My card today uses the Jane Davenport Chilled Pastel Palette from the Making Faces line, and the Floating Feathers clear stamp set from the Artomology line.

To create my card, I started off by arranging three of the feathers from the stamp set onto a piece of white cardstock and stamped them with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  After I heat set the ink, I used my finger to layer the pastel over top, building up the color intensity with a few layers until I was happy with the result.  I love how the pastel picks up the texture of the paper.  Then, I used my Prismacolor colored pencils to color in each feather, in shades that matched the pastel background underneath.

After I was done with the pencil coloring, I splattered on some black watercolor for  an artsy feel.  Then,  I heat embossed a sentiment in white embossing powder on black cardstock, trimmed that with my scissors and popped it up with foam tape.  After adding a scattering of clear sequins, I popped then panel up with foam tape  onto an A2 card base.

I really enjoyed working with these products today!  I am not much of a mixed media girl usually, but these pastels may have changed that for me!  Be sure to check out the Jane Davenport line... it is full of fun products!

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Reverse Confetti May Blog Hop


It's t he 8th of the month and that means it's time for the Reverse Confetti blog hop!  The new May release is available NOW in the Reverse Confetti store and at your favorite retailers!

Today, I have a card and tag set to share with you using the new Ice Cream Social stamp set, coordinating Ice Cream Social Confetti Cuts and the new See Through Tag Confetti Cuts die.

Ice Cream Social 1

To create my card, I started off with an A2 card base cut from Ballet Slippers cardstock.  I ink blended some Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink on the top of the panel to create an ombre effect, then I splattered on some white acrylic paint.  I added a strip of Sweet Stripes patterned paper to the bottom of the panel, and framed the card with a frame using the Stitched Note & Frames Confetti Cuts die set.  I stamped and colored the bear and ice cream truck from the new Ice Cream Social stamp set and diecut them with the coordinating Ice Cream Social Confetti Cuts dies.  Before I popped them up on the panel, I stamped a few clouds from Rainy Day Fun in Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink, and outlined them with a white gel pen.  I stamped a sentiment from the set onto a diecut banner from the Flowers for Mom Confetti Cuts dies.  To finish off the card, I added a scattering of clear iridescent sequins.

Ice Cream Social 2

I created a coordinating tag using the See Through Tag Confetti Cuts die, in the same color scheme as the card.  The cute little bear and ice cream come are accompanied by a present, cake, and trio of balloons from the new Party Animals stamp set.

That's all for me today,  but be sure to hop along and comment!  The rest of the Confetti Crew has lots to share with you today!!

My first card uses the new Sportsball stamp set and coordinating Sportsball Icons dies!  I used the previously released Positive Strokes Two stamp set to stamp and masculine rainbow backdrop for my card.  I used Distress Oxide inks in Chipped Sapphire, Pine Needles, Bundled Sage, Mustard Seed and Fired Brick, then I spattered on some black acrylic paint.  I stamped the basketball, baseball and football from the Sportsball stamp set and colored them with Copic markers.  I arranged them on the stamped background and adhered with a glue pen and foam tape.  For my sentiment, I diecut the word son using the new Dude Dies.  The shadow was cut from black cardstock, and the letters cut from white.  Then stamped Happy Birthday sentiment is from the new Dude Sampler stamp set.  To finish off my card, I added some white gel pen accents and a scattering of tiny wood stars from my stash.

Happy Birthday Son

My second card uses the new Daddy Yo 2 stamp set and Daddy Yo Icons dies!  To create this card, I started off with a black card  base.  I used the previously released Geo-Graphic stamp set to stamp black polka dots on a kraft cardstock panel, which I then spattered with white acrylic paint.  I used the Flaunters dies to diecut a circle to ground my scene.  Then,  I stamped and colored a trio of beer bottles from Daddy Yo 2, which I diecut and popped up with foam tape.  I added some google eyes to the center bottle along with an adorable mustache included in the set, and white heat embossed a sentiment from the set on a black cardstock strip.  To finish things off, I added a trio of stamped yellow stars, and some white gel pen accents.
