Reverse Confetti - Boho Vibes - Dream Catcher

Saturday, April 22, 2017



I struggle trying to make masculine cards.   When I saw this stamp set from the last release by Reverse Confetti, I grabbed it up immediately.    I love the dream catcher in the set and immediately knew that this would be perfect for making cards and such for my boys and my husband.    Here is a simple card that I created using the dream catcher watercolored in blues and browns.    





I mounted it to a panel stamped with a MFT Linen Background stamp set using the same tone/tone ink/paper using Grout Grey.    Then mounted to next largest size die from the MFT Wonky Stitched rectangle stax.   The sentiment was stamped in MFT Hybrid Black Licorice ink and then the card was mounted on Kraft card panel.   






Ready to go for my husband's Father's Day in June!

Reverse Confetti - Boho Vibes

Sunday, April 16, 2017



This is such a great stamp set for masculine cards.    I used the feathers from the stamp set to create a background  by stamping the feathers over and over in a pattern using Steel Grey Ink on Steel Grey card stock.   



The feathers were stamped and clear embossed on watercolor yardstick and then watercolored with Distress Inks.    I stamped the sentiment in Summer Splash ink and then clear embossed it on a Lacy Scallop Circle die from Reverse Confetti as well. 






A simple but masculine card.    I stamped a birthday sentiment on the inside and ready for my son's birthday this summer.

My Favorite Things - Magical Unicorns

Tuesday, April 11, 2017

This is a card that I made for my niece and her daughter.    I have gotten on the action wobbler bandwagon finally!   I wanted the unicorn to appear as if he is flying thru the sky.   So I started with the Snowdrifts background die (by My Favorite Things) and then colored the pieces with Distress ink to create the sky and grass.

The stamp set is from My Favorite Things and it is called Magical Unicorns.   





I then stamped and colored the unicorn and trimmed out with my Scan and Cut.    I added the action wobbler to the back of the unicorn and when you touch it, he moves back and forth.   I had a hard time capturing it in a photo.    I stamped the sentiment and then added a small heart to the card.    





I put in the mail this week and hopes it creates a smile for them when they open it.

Lawn Fawn Mom + Me * Mother's Day Card

Monday, April 10, 2017

I was so inspired by Kristina Werner's card here, that I decided to do this with my Lawn Fawn Mom + Me Stamp set and make a Mother's Day card.     

Kristina did a video with masked ink blending and then used her Zig markers to color the image.   I basically followed her card but changed the images up.    I ended up using more blue (Chipped Sapphire) in mine because it looked nicer with the orange in the fox.   Orange and Blue are complementary colors and she has a video as well.   Check out this video for more on water color mixing but same can be applied to any color medium that will blend together. 




I used Bristol Smooth card stock which distress inks and Zig markers work very nicely on.    I cut out the heart image from some masking paper and then applied to my Bristol card stock.   I ink blended with Seedless Preserves, Chipped Sapphire, Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass.   In the end I used more Chipped Sapphire over the Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass.   I liked the look much better in the end. 



The fox was water colored with the Zig markers and the stump was stamped in MFT Hybrid Chocolate Brown ink and then colored over with Zig markers.      I white heat embossed the sentiment from the same stamp set.   Then I trimmed the panel down and placed it on an A2 card covered with some patterned paper wrapped in ribbon.    

I just love how it turned out.    Thanks Kristina for your inspiration!   


Hope you have a fantastic day!

Lawn Fawn - Party Animal

Saturday, April 8, 2017




Happy weekend to you!   Today I used the Lawn Fawn Party Animal stamp set and made a quick birthday card.   The images were stamped on smooth white card stock and them colored with Copic markers and cut out with my Scan and Cut.    For the background, I stamped some soft grey ink on white card base.    I watercolored a piece of watercolor paper with Distress Inks and dragged it thru the ink to get a splattered look.   When I cut it out with a circle die, it reminded me of the earth. 



Here is a close up of the images.   The sentiment was white heat embossed on some black card stock and then embossed.

Reverse Confetti - Mermaid Kisses - Sketch for you to try

Sunday, April 2, 2017

Happy weekend again!   I got some much needed time to myself this weekend and was able to spend some time in my craft room.    Since it is a new month, there is a new sketch on Reverse Confetti.    I used a new to me stamp set, Mermaid Kisses, to create my card.




I stamped see of the smaller images on some watercolor card stock and colored them in with my Distress inks.    Then I cut the panel down to go along with the sketch.   The card stock base was stamped with a linen background stamp in pale blue ink. 





The main image was stamped and colored with Copic markers and then trimmed down and placed on a Reverse Confetti die, Lacy Scallop Circle Confetti cut.   I added Diamond Stickles to the flower to add some shimmer. 








Here is the sketch link for you to take a look and try at Reverse Confetti.

Reverse Confetti - Bear Hugs and Bitty Banners

Friday, March 31, 2017



Happy Friday!   YAY!  Love weekends!   They are for sleeping in and crafting! :-) At least that is the plan for me this weekend.    My card today shares the Reverse Confetti and Bitty Banner stamp set.   I colored the image with Copic markers.    


My card went really fast by using patterned paper for the main panel and a simple layout.  I love the blue, green and brown of the paper.    The bitty banner set has some really cute small sentiments.  I also used the die which will cut the banner and another will create a layer to place the banner cut on.   (I did not use the second banner on my card.) 



I used a Sakura White Gel pen to add detail to the image. A simple frame and some twine finish it off.   Aren't those koala's so cute?  They color up really quickly and make such a cute card.

My Favorite Things - Space Explorer

Monday, March 20, 2017

I am sharing another card that I made with the My Favorite Things Birdie Brown Space Explorer set. I have been experimenting with making galaxy backgrounds.   They are so much fun to make.    To get ideas, go onto Pinterest and search for them and you will get so much inspiration for colors to add.





I used Distress Inks in the following colors to make this background:  Mustard Seed, Dusty Concord, Peacock Feathers, and Black Soot onto Bristol smooth cards stock.    I then splattered it with water and Copic Opaque white ink that had been watered down to thin it out.    I then sprayed and splattered it with some homemade shimmer mist.   Look in the photo at the very bottom of the post and you can see the shimmer it added. 






I decided to make it interactive with the MFT spinner circle spinner channels and the slider elements. The stamped images were stamped and colored with Copic markers.   I heat embossed the sentiment on some Black Licorice card stock from MFT.   






As a final embellishment, I added Glossy Accents to the Space Explorer's helmet.

Reverse Confetti - Space Monkey

Saturday, March 18, 2017

Hope you are having a fantastic weekend!   I was inspired to make this card by a card I saw some time ago, this one.   So I used my Reverse Confetti Monkey Business stamp set and a new set called Boho Vibes for the sentiment that went so well with the little space monkey.    He is dreaming big flying thru space ready to make his mark!  




The background was made with Distress Inks Oxides in Faded Jeans, Broken China and Cracked Pistachio.  I watercolored the background and then sprayed with water and Mister Huey's white misting spray.  



To make the space monkey, I stamped the image on Neenah Solar white paper with MFT Hybrid Black Licorice ink and colored with Copic markers.    I used MFT Circle 2 die to cut one from vellum and one circle from transparency.    To be able to add the clear circle cut to the monkey, I covered the whole circe with adhesive.   



The sentiment was stamped in Versamark ink and then white heat embossed with white embossing powder.    To make it pop off the card, I laid a shadow with a C3 Copic marker on the underside of the sentiment.   

The main panel was trimmed down and then added to Smooth White A2 card base with strong adhesive as the panel had been watercolored and had warped some. 

Isn't he adorable!

These koala bears are just so adorable.    I made a really simple card with the Lacy Scallop Circle and Sunburst cover plate dies from Reverse Confetti.   The sentiment is from the Reverse Confetti Bitty Banners and Bitty Banners Confetti cuts.   The Bear Hugs image was colored with Copic markers.  





The paper is from My Favorite Things: Steel Grey and Grout Gray.   The white is Neenah 90 lb.   The sentiment was stamped in Lawn Fawn Plastic Flamingo ink the main stamped image was stamped in MFT Hybrid Black Licorice ink which is Copic friendly.

My Favorite Things - Space Explorer

Wednesday, March 15, 2017

I am sharing another card that I made with the My Favorite Things Space Explorer set.   This time instead of a galaxy background, I made my little moon scape for my little guy.    I used the Scenic Safari dies from MFT to create my moon scape and stamped on Grout Grey card stock with the Lots of Dots background with Grout Grey dye ink.    I sponged some additional ink on the top edge to provide more separation of the pieces.   




The main black panel was stamped with the Star Celebration background with Versamark ink and clear embossing powder.    The main stamped images were colored with Copic markers and then I added clear Pico Embellisher to add more shine and dimension to the card.   




Here is a close up of the shine added to the card with the clear embossing and Pico embellisher.

Reverse Confetti - Monkey Business

Monday, March 13, 2017

I have two cards to share using the Reverse Confetti Monkey Business stamp set.   I colored the images with Copic markers and then cut them out with my Scan and Cut.    I kept the color theme pretty much the same.   For the first card, I stamped with a Watercolor Stripes Background stamp from MFT with Summer Splash die ink on MFT Summer Splash card stock.   I heat embossed a sentiment on black card stock with white embossing powder.    The sentiment was cut out with a die from the MFT Blueprints 25.  




For the next card, I sponged Distress ink on the top half of the card stock and then used a small circle stencil on top and then sponged more ink on top.    The sentiment was heat embossed on a die from the MFT Blueprints 20 die.  The panel was trimmed out also with the frame die from the Blueprints 20.





Here are some close up shots of the images and the coloring.

My Favorite Things - Birdie Brown Space Explorer

Sunday, March 5, 2017

I have had such fun with this new set from My Favorite Things and Birdie Brown.    It is so darn cute!   The other fun part is making galaxy backgrounds with my Distress Inks.    Here is one that I made that I just love, made from Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers, Chipped Sapphire and a tiny little bit of Black Soot on the top edge.   What is really cool, is the green that you get when you mix the Peacock Feathers with the Mustard Seed.     It's a beautiful color.    I splattered it with some Mister Huey's white misting spray.  






The images were colored in with Copic Markers on Neenah Solar White.   I white heat embossed the sentiment on a black moon shaped panel.   Clear Spectrum Noir was colored over the balloons.   Isn't he adorable!   I made several cards this weekend with this set.   I will share some more over the next couple of weeks.

I need to replenish my birthday card stash.   This was a quick card to make.   I made my own background with watercolor and used an image from Paw Prints from Reverse Confetti that I had previously colored up.   FYI.... his party hat is supposed to be a sign for the doghouse in the set, but I made it into a party hat. :-)   I used the Reverse Confetti Linked Garland for party streamers.
