Countdown to Confetti - Dog Days & Dog Days Sentiments


Hello there!  Welcome to day 3 of the Countdown to Confetti with Reverse Confetti!  Today, I am featuring what may be one of my  most favorite RC sets ever, Dog Days.  It will be available tomorrow, July 15th in the Reverse Confetti store, along with the rest of the July release, which is pretty darn awesome!

To create my first card, I started off by diecutting the Along the  Dotted Lines Cover Panel from white cardstock.  Then, I used the Circle of Waves Confetti Cuts die to set my scene.  I diecut the circle from white cardstock and used Distress ink in shades of Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch and Vintage Photo to color each wave.  I stamped the adorable little dog with his surf board and the palm tree image and the beach ball from the new Dog Days stamp set, and colored them with my Copic markers before diecutting them with the coordinating Dog Days Confetti Cuts dies.  I also pulled out my Rainy Day Fun stamp set, and stamped and colored a few clouds and the water puddle.

I arranged my images to create the scene and once I was happy with the arrangement, I glue some down flat with a glue pen and popped others up with foam tape.  I stamped a sentiment from the new Dog Days Sentiments stamp set in black ink on white cardstock and popped that up in the top right of the scene.  To finish off the card, I added some white gel pen accents and some Diamond Stickles to the clouds and puddle.  I also used Glossy Accents on his sunglasses for some added fun.

To create my second card, I stated of by diecutting the new Deco Cover Panel from white cardstock. I used the same shades of Distress ink to add color to the sky.  For the sand, I tore a piece of kraft cardstock, added some Vintage Photo ink to the top, then splattered it with more Vintage Photo and some white acrylic paint to create the look of sand.  I stamped the adorable little dog with his innertube from Dog Days, the clouds, sun  and water puddle from Rainy Day Fun, and then, I pulled out the Let's Shellabrate stamp set.  The sea grass, ropes and seagull are a perfect compliment to the Dog Days stamp set!  There are so many scene building possibilities with them!

I arranged the scene adhering some pieces down with glue and others with foam tape.  A sentiment from Dog Days Sentiments was stamped on a diecut banner and added to the left side of the panel.  To finish off this card, I added white gel pen accents, Diamond Stickles and Glossy Accents to his glasses.

I truly had SO much fun creating this pair of cards! :)
