My Favorite Things - Mermazing

Monday, May 22, 2017

I just love Birdie Brown stamp sets!   I just got the new stamp set called, Mermazing and it is absolutely adorable!    I used another new goodie from My Favorite Things, Mermaid Tail background stamp and white heat embossed on some Bristol Smooth card stock and ink blended with several distress inks in Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon, Cracked Pistashio and Salty Ocean.

I colored the mermaid on Neenah Solar white 80 lbs and cut out with my Scan and Cut.   I colored with Copic markers and added detail with my Sakura White Gel pen and Clear Sparkle pen.   

I tried to match my Copic markers to the Distress ink colors that I did in the background for the tail. 

The Distress background was then cut out with the Oval Stitched Frame.    I also cut  a white panel with the Oval Frames.   I used the new Stitched Oval Word Windows and stamped the sentiment.    The Ovals were pieced together and the main image was popped up on the panel   I added it to a Sno Cone Card base.   

I finished off with several different sized and colored sequins.    

Thanks for stopping by!   I am adding this card to the Simon Says Challenge - Add a Bit of Sparkle! 


Reverse Confetti - Sketch For You To Try - Butterfly Dreams

Tuesday, May 16, 2017

Happy Day to you!   I am back to share a card for the Reverse Confetti Sketch.  I used the stamp sets Butterfly Dreams and Elemental Stripes.  

I stamped the Butterfly's with Buttercup and Sunshine inks and made an ombre effect on the main butterfly.   The main panel was stamped with one of the stripes for a tone on tone impact.   Sequins were added to add sparkle and shine!

Reverse Confetti - Rollin'

Sunday, May 14, 2017

I had some fun this weekend using the Rollin' stamp set and creating these cards.     I said it previously, this set takes me back to the 80's when I was in high school and skating was my thing!   

I just love that roller skate image!    The sentiment is from a new set as well from Reverse Confetti called Work of Art.    

I stamped with the Elemental Stripes set and then cut a circle out of the middle to stamp my sentiment.    

Love all the rainbow of color!

New Release Blog Hop! Reverse Confetti

Monday, May 8, 2017

Welcome to the Reverse Confetti New Release Blog Hop for May! 

It is the final day and all products are available at Reverse Confetti!    You should have arrived here from Amy Kolling's blog!

I think I have an obsession with these Panda's from Miso Happy.   I super love them!  They were stamped on watercolor paper and then lightly colored with my Zig markers.   So super quick! The clouds were die cut from the  Take Me Away Confetti Cut set.     The top panel is made from Buttercup card stock that I sponged with Bumblebee ink thru the Leaf Lattice stencil.   I just love this yellow combination!   It is absolutely gorgeous together.    

For the focal point, I used the new Hello & Thanks Label to cut the center from my main panel and sponged some Aqua and Lime Green  Reverse Confetti dye ink on the card stock underneath for the grass and sky.   I stamped a sentiment from the Miso Happy stamp set and then white heat embossed and trimmed it down.

For my next card, I needed a card for a baby shower.   I have used this starburst technique in the past and it is really great when you want to use patterned papers.    I selected four of the designs from the Pattern Play 6x6 pad and cut a 2 inch rectangle from each pattern.   

Then take each rectangle and cut from one corner to the opposite corner to create two triangles.   Next take a panel and adhere adhesive tape all over the panel.    Starting in the middle, lay down one of your triangles with some of the paper over on the top and bottom of the adhesive panel.   Then alternate each pattern till the panel is full.    Trim off the excess from all sides.    You will have a starburst pattern!

I took my paper pieced panel and mounted to some Reverse Confetti Aqua cardstock.   I added a little panda from the Miso Happy stamp set and a sentiment from Simply Sentiments mounted a circle and scalloped circle from the Flowers for Mom  Confetti Cuts.      

Count Down to Confetti Release - One Day at a Time and Simply Sentiments

Sunday, May 7, 2017

Hello again!   It is day three of the Reverse Confetti Sneak Peek for the May release and 4th Birthday Celebration!  

There are 7 stamp sets, 10 Confetti Cuts, a new 6x6 patterned paper pad, 4 new inks and cardstocks and 1 new stencil that will be available to purchase on May 8th!   

Today, I am featuring both sentiment sets that will be released.

As part of the release today, proceeds from the One Day at a Time stamp set will be donated to THE PINK FUND. The Pink Fund provides 90 day non-medical cost of living expenses to breast cancer patients in active treatment for breast cancer so they can focus on healing, raising families and returning to the workplace.   

First up, One Day at a Time has some great sentiments that are bold and great for encouragement cards.   I chose to pair this with the Miso Happy and Take Flight stamp sets.    I ink blended some blue and green inks onto some Bristol cardstock and then stamped my sentiment and then heat embossed the sentiment with clear embossing powder.  

I added the little panda from Miso Happy and the paper airplane from the Take Flight stamp set.    The panel was popped up on some of the patterned paper from new the Pattern Play paper pad.    

These pandas are one of my favorites from the release. :-) They are just simply adorable.

For my next card,  I used a sentiment from Simply Sentiments for a sweet birthday card.    I added the clouds and the balloon from the new Take Flight and the sweet chubby panda from the Miso Happy stamp set.

But wait!!!   I have one more card to share!  This time I wanted to create a more sophisticated card using the One Day at a Time Sentiment Stamp set.    I heat embossed the sentiment in a beautiful liquid platinum embossing powder.  I loved how bold the sentiment looks.   I used the Hello and Thanks Label for the sentiment and layered it on top of the Vertical Stripes Panel and placed on top of a card panel of the same color.  

I then stamped flowers from the Blooms 'n Bud stamp set.   I also die cut the Wheat  Confetti Cuts die and embossed the die cuts with the same Liquid Platinum embossing powder and then layered them up to the left of the sentiment.    I accented with some enamel dots.
