Reverse Confetti - Banner In Bloom & Something Wonderful

Happy Saturday!   I hope you are able to get your craft on this weekend!   I decided to do something a little different today and did a floral card!   Shocking I am sure, if you look back in my blog, you will note I am a critter girl.    I made this for my mother who just had surgery.  I wanted to do something really bright and cheery.  








I started by creating my background with the Squared Off Cover Panel Confetti Cuts and die cut from Midnight cardstock.    I then trimmed two of the center rows and added Iced Aqua cardstock behind the open squares.    I had trimmed it down to add my sentiment and stamped it directly onto the white A2 card base.    The sentiment comes from the stamp set Something Wonderful.  I stamped it in Versafine Black Onyx ink and then clear heat embossed it.    




I stamped the images from Banner in Bloom and colored with my Copic markers.  I then die cut them out with the Banners in Bloom Confetti Cuts.   I colored them a sherbet colored rainbow.   I added some Clear Sparkle from my Spectrum Noir pen.    The cover panel and flowers were popped up on the card base.   For a final touch, I added some clear sparkle sequins.    






I am participating in several challenges today with this card: 







and 

Inspired by all the Little Things Challenge #80 (I used the sherbet colors of the inspiration photo to pick the colors for my flowers and loved all the Aqua in the photo.)


Thanks for stopping by!   I hope that you get some crafty time in with the holiday weekend!

Reverse Confetti - S'more Love

Happy Friday Fetti' Friends!   Last weekend I played around with Mission Gold watercolors that I got for Christmas and made some galaxy backgrounds.    I decided that they also looked like a northern winter sky with lots of snow!   I had an idea to use the Reverse Confetti Tall Triangle dies to create some Glacier's.   The layout was similar to a card I made last year here but in a different setting.   Now I had just the right background for the penguins from S'more Love.  



 I stamped my penguins from S'More Love onto Premier Polar White cardstock and colored with my Copic Markers and die cut them with the S'more Love Confetti Cuts.    Next, I used the Tall Triangles and the grassy border die from Nuts About You Confetti cuts  to create my glaciers and snow bank.    I then layered the die cut pieces onto the watercolor panel.  







Next, I decided to add a lot os sparkle and shimmer to my card.   The glaciers tops were covered in glue and then I sprinkled some clear glitter on top.   Next I added some Sparkle glitter with my Spectrum marker on the heart.   I covered the heart and the noses with a Clear Pico Embellisher.  I then added some Crystal Darice Sequins.  These will pick up the color of whatever you place them on. They are some of my favorite sequins.  I just love adding a little sparkle! 





I trimmed the panel down to 3 3/4 inch by 5 inches.   This gave a great border of the Mist cardstock base.   I forgot about adding and sentiment and did not want to cover the background so I stamped it directly to the background and then white heat embossed it.  




I hope you get a chance to get crafty this weekend!

Newton's Nook - Cosmic Newton

Hello!   Happy Thursday!   One more day till Friday!   Do you have any big plans for the weekend?   I wish I had some R&R planned but don't think it is in the cards for me this weekend!   I picked up this stamp set back a few months ago and had not gotten a chance to use it.   Last weekend I made some galaxy backgrounds playing around with some new watercolors and decided that it was a perfect time to ink these up!  





I created two cards to share.   I stamped and colored the images with my Copic Markers and then trimmed them out.    I watercolored another piece of water color cardstock and used it to make my moon for both my cards.  


I stamped my sentiment and then white heat embossed it.   I used my Mission Gold watercolors to create the background.   I trimmed the panel down to 3 3/4 x 5 inches and then placed it on a white card base.


For my next card, I had a little trouble with the stamped image.   I used my Pico Embellisher to add clear coat to the window but I was a little impatient waiting for it to dry and accidentally tapped my card and the clear liquid went all over my image!    So I had to pull it off and then stamp and color it again.    




The second time I used Glossy Accents and I have a really large bottle of Glossy Accents.    I had not used it in a while and I guess it had a lot of air in it and created a ton of bubbles when it dried.   I could not believe it! I was not going to stamp and color this image again so I just went with it!   Sometimes you have to take the lemons that life gives you right and be ok with it.   I am going to just pretend that it was intentional, right?  It adds character :-)  I die cut a bigger moon using a circle die and then I finished it off with some Pretty Pink Posh sequins.    






Thanks for stopping by!

Reverse Confetti - Monsterous


Hey there!   I hope you had a wonderful weekend!   My husband gave me my Valentine's day gift a little early (Ikea Kallax) and I spent the weekend organizing and cleaning out my craft room!!!!!!  YAY!!   He is a good man!  I absolutely love it!    I had a little time to get crafty and had this card design in my head.   It is a non traditional Valentine card for a friend of mine!  

I started out by stamping out the two monsters from Reverse Confetti Monsterous stamp set on Premier Polar White cardstock.    I colored the images with my Copic markers and then die cut them with the matching Monsterous Confetti Cuts.   



To make my background, I used Bristol Smooth cardstock and sponged Reverse Confetti Abyss and Wisteria inks onto the background.   Then I splattered it with some dark navy watercolor paint.   To make my moon, I used watercolor cardstock and used some black watercolor and really watered it down.   I painted and dried it several times and then splattered it as well.   I then gave it a curved edge.   




I was going to add a heart in-between the two monsters but I did not like the way the monsters had to tilt.   So I scrapped that idea and just put them side by side.   For the sentiment, I used A Friend Like You and white heat embossed it.  I added the panel to a Mist card base.    For some sparkle,  I adhered some Darice Crystal sequins and added some blue/white twine. 



I played along with Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - It must be love - non traditional Valentine card for a friend



I hope you had time to get crafty this weekend!    Have a wonderful week!  

And Happy Valentine's Day!
