Countdown to Confetti - Reverse Confetti - July Release - Day One

Hey there!  Today is the first day of the Reverse Confetti July release and there is so much goodness to share with you over the next three days!   I have several projects to share with you today showcasing the three new stamps, three new dies and one new Cover Panel with you today.  

First up, I love succulents and saw these cute little pots at my local home and garden store and knew it would be a great hostess gift.  When I saw the new Multi Step Cacti stamp set,  I knew it would be perfect for a tag for this gift.  

I started by die cutting with the new Pointed Cover Panel with kraft cardstock and then die cut it again with Inside Scallop Circle Tag.   I die cut another kraft card panel with the Inside Scallop Circle Tag again to double up on the cardstock and make it very sturdy.   

 I stamped the new Multi Step Cacti with the following Reverse Confetti Inks: Mint, RC Aqua, Peach, Coral, Brick, Piggy Bank, Flamingo, and Seafoam.   I then die cut the cacti out with the coordinating Multi Step Cacti Confetti Cuts.   I stamped and die cut several out to use on my tag and card that I made to share with you today! 

For my sentiment, I used the new This Says It All sentiment set and you will absolutely love this new stamp set with 16 sentiments.   They are lined block letter style and I am absolutely in love with these.  I had stamped the sentiment onto one of the new Three Tags Confetti Cuts that is sized perfectly to work with this stamp set.  

I popped up my stamped images onto the tags and then added my stampede tag to the top and tied it around the cute plant.    Hostess gift all ready!   

Next up, I have a card that I made with the other stamped out Multi Step Cacti stamp set.   See the ink colors above that I used to stamp these out.   I used one of my Copics to fill in one of the pots.   

To create my card panel, I used the new Point Cover Panel Confetti Cuts and die cut it from Polar White cardstock and Iced Aqua cardstock.   I die cut the Iced Aqua panel with the Pierced Rounded Top Layers Confetti Cuts.   I then offset it on the panel and adhered them directly to an A2 card base. 

For the sentiment, I again used the new This Says It All stamp set and white heat embossed onto Midnight cardstock and trimmed it down.   Doesn't it look fantastic heat embossed?  This is going set is going to be super popular and I know that I will find myself reaching for it again and again.   

I finished the card off with some crystal sequins that pick up the colors in the card!   

For my final project today, I have a slimline card design for you using the new Background Builder stamp set.   I just love Reverse Confetti's pattern builder stamp sets.  These can be so versatile to use.   I decided to go a little graphic and stamped the images onto a watercolor panel with black ink.   

I trimmed a piece of watercolor paper to 3.5 inches by 8.25 inches and then painted a loose rainbow across the panel.   Once the panel was dry, I did run my dry iron over the panel to correct some of the warping.  Be careful that you don't use an iron too high with heat but warm enough to help iron it flat.  I put a couple pieces of paper on the panel before I iron so that I do transfer any color to my iron.   

I stamped the images from Background Builder on the panel using my MISTI.   This helped me ensure that I got a good crisp image on the watercolor paper.   I adhered this to a Bumblebee card base that had been trimmed 7.5 inches by 8.5 inches and scored at 3.75 inches.   I added the watercolor panel to the Bumblebee card base.  

I stamped a sentiment from This Says It All stamp set and white heat embossed it onto Midnight cardstock.   I trimmed it down and added to the panel with foam tape.    To finish off the panel, I used several different colors of Nuvo drops across the panel.   

That is it for me today!

Whimsy Stamps - Hello Bear

Welcome to the July mini release for Whimsy Stamps!   I have two cards projects to share with you today with items from today's release.  

First up, I have this super cute slimline card with the new Hello Bear, Honeycomb Drips Stencil, and the new Slimline Card Builder die.   

I stamped the bear from Hello Bear directly onto the panel and colored with my copic markers.   The beehive and flower are both from the Hello Bear stamp set.   How adorable is this stamp set!! I added a few grassy details using the Polka Dot Pals Fern stamp set.   

I love Whimsy Slimline dies, this one comes with three separate windows that will leave details on both the positive and negative die cuts.   This one creates a perfect panel with stitching details around the card panel.   I used one of the window dies for my sentiment - love the stitched details.  

I added some great details to my panel using the new Honeycomb Drips stencil which has both the honey drips and honeycomb in one stencil.   I used the honey drip side at the top of my card and the honeycomb on the bottom and ink blended to add detail to the top and bottom of the slimline panel.   I used Distress Oxide inks in Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, and Fossilized Amber.  

 Next up, I created this adorable card and used the new Bizzy Bee paper pad.  I colored another image from Hello Bear and then used my Scan and Cut to trim around the image.   I colored the bear with my Copic markers and he looks just like a bear from my favorite children's books!   

I die cut a couple of the papers from Bizzy Bees paper pad with the Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles and the new FaDoodles Frames Scalloped Rectangles.   I stamped the same image onto my die cut rectangle because I accidently cut off the bee.   I layered my stamped image on to of the panel. 

The new Bizzy Bees paper pad has some happy patterned papers and I could not decide which side to use on the flower panel below.   To be honest, I die cut it the first time using the opposite side but changed my mind and then die cut it again with the same Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle.   The paper is such a great quality it had no problem with the double die cutting!   

Well that is it for me today.... Be sure to check out more of the design team's projects and the new release on the Whimsy Stamps blog!

Whimsy Stamps - Dragon Water Fun - More FUN!

I am back again today to share another card that I made with the Dragon Water Fun from Whimsy Stamps.   I just love this stamp set and had to make another card with the other dragon.   I stamped the image and colored it with my Copic markers.   I love his little ducky inner tube!  I stamped a couple of the clouds.  I used my Scan and Cut to cut out all the images.   

I used the FaDoodles Frames Scalloped Rectangle Die and stamped the water puddle from the stamp set and colored with my Copics.   I stamped a sentiment from Dragon Water Fun.   I just love the sentiments in this set.    I added some clear sparkle to the water and other parts of the images.  

Isn't this the cutest stamp!  There are several stamp sets with this dragon, I can't wait to get more!!!  

I added the panel to a dark navy card base.   Isn't this set the cutest!   You can see more of the mini release here at the Whimsy store!  Check out the new mini release today

Whimsy Stamps - Giraffes Peeking

Hey there! Popping in to share another card from the recent mini release with Whimsy Stamps!   This one is totally cute and called Giraffes Peeking!   It has three really cute giraffes.   I made this card using the new FaDoodles Frames Scalloped Rectangle dies and the new Burst Background Stamp. 

I colored my giraffe with Copic markers and trimmed him down.  I die cut the FaDoodles Frame Scalloped Rectangles from aqua colored card stock and die cut a Pierced Stitched Circle from the center.   I inked some Tumbled Glass onto a piece of white card stock and placed it behind the FaDoodles Frame.  

I created a peachy card base and stamped it with peach ink using the Burst Background stamp.   Then I layered the frame and circle onto the panel and added the giraffe.   I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set and then die cut it with the pierced oval sentiment using the Quick Strips die.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!   Be sure to go to the Whimsy Stamps page and check out all the new products for the June release!   Here is some more inspiration from the design team:

Whimsy Stamps - Dragon Water Fun

Hey there!!!   I am here to share another mini release with Whimsy Stamps!   I am in love with this stamp and die set today!    The new stamp set is called Dragon Water Fun!  Is this not the cutest stamp!!!   I love dragons and this one just makes me smile.   I stamped the image and cut it out with my Scan and Cut.   I colored it with my Copic markers.   I love these colors and love the bright and bold of the orange, yellow and blue! 

For the background, I die cut a panel using the new FaDoodles Frames Scalloped Rectangles die.  I ink blended with Distress Oxide inks in Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers and Chipped Sapphire.  I repeatedly stamped the rain drops over the panel once it was dry and white heat embossed it. 

I layered the stamped and ink panel onto an A2 kraft card base that had been stamped with the Buffalo Plaid Background Rubber stamp set with kraft ink.   Just a subtle hint of texture on the card base. 

 I love the sentiment You Got This in the stamp set!   I stamped it directly onto the panel with black ink.
