TAWS Sneak Peek - Slurp


Hello! I'm joining the other fab ladies on the Alley Way Stamps DT today to preview the new Slurp stamp set, which features a bunch of cool treats!

To create my card, I started by stamping six popsicle images in stazon ink, then coloring them with watercolors once the ink had dried.  While the popsicles were drying, I stamped one of the sentiments from the set in versafine ink onto a strip of white CS before trimming the ends into a banner shape.


Once the popsicles were dry, I trimmed them out, then fiddle with their arrangement for a while on a piece of white CS until I was satisfied with their layout.  I then quickly adhered them to the card front with pop dots before I could change my mind and mess with them again (hehe).  To finish up, I adhered the cardstock strip with pop dots, covered the popsicles with stickles, then embellished with black enamel dots.

Have a great one!

Let Your Faith Be Bigger Than Your Fear


Hello! I'm popping in to share a pretty watercolor resist card I created using one of my favorite sentiment sents from Reverse Confetti, as well as probably my all-time favorite peacock feather image!

To create my card, I started by stamping the sentiment from God is Good in versamark ink onto white CS, then heat embossing with white powder.  I then went back and added in some peacock feathers from Peacock Pretties to frame the sentiment.  They were also stamped with versamark ink, then heat embossed with white powder.



Next, I used diluted Distress Inks (Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers, and Cracked Pistachio) to add color to the background.  I'm super impatient and couldn't wait for the layer to dry, so I gave it a quick zap with my heat gun, then pressed it between two acrylic blocks to try to smooth it out some.  Once the image was fully dry, I adhered the layer to a medium gray card base with pop dots.  To finish up, I embellished with yellow enamel dots.


  

Have a great one!

Hello


Hello! ;) I'm popping in to share a CAS and graphic card I made using the lovely dream catcher image from the Alley Way Stamps.

I started with a piece of yellow patterned paper, which was trimmed to fit a white card base using a slanted, offset position.  I then stamped the image from Wigwam in versamark ink, then heat embossed with white powder.


The patterned paper was then adhered to the white card base.  Next, I die cut a sentiment using silver glitter paper, then adhered it to the card front.  To finish up, I embellished with black enamel dots.


Have a great one!

Happy Birthday to You


Hello! I'm popping in to share one of the cards I created for the last Reverse Confetti release that I hadn't had a chance to share yet on my blog. :)

To create my card, I started with a white card base, and adhered one of the Let's Celebrate Quick Card Panels to the the card front.  I then die cut a large offset circle out of a piece of black and white polka dot patterned paper.  The polka dot patterned paper was then adhered to the card base with pop dots.



I then stamped one of the uber cute birthday hat images from Party Hats in teal ink, then cut it out with the coordinating Party Hats Confetti Cuts.  I then die cut the hat topper and base using some of the additional elements in the Party Hats Confetti Cuts collection from peach/coral felt before adhering them to the stamped hat.  To finish up, I adhered the hat with pop dots then embellished with teal gems.



   

Have a great one!

May SFYTT - Aloha Friend


Hello! I created this card using this month's Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT) from Reverse Confetti, one of my favorite Pina Colada Quick Card Panels, the new Stitched Flag Trio Confetti Cuts dies, as well as the Pineapples Aplenty stamp set. 

To create this card, I started by cutting a strip of white CS, then stamping it with the pineapple and topper images from Pineapples Aplenty that match the QCP.  I then adhered the CS strip to a yellow-orange card base.  Next, I adhered this uber fun Pina Colada Quick Card Panel to the card base with pop dots.



I used the Stitched Flag Trio Confetti Cuts to cut out two banners from patterned paper.  The tops were trimmed to size, then adhered to the card front with pop dots.  To finish up, I embellished with some teal enamel dots.  This card was created in a flash! :)

Hooked On You


Hello! I'm popping in to share a sweet little card I made using nothing but scraps... YESSS!!!... I love it when that happens!! :) 

I started by stamping the fish image from All Washed Up in stazon gray ink, then colored it in with watercolor pencils.  Once the fish was dry, I cut out the image, covered it with a clear winks of stella glitter pen, then attached it to the watercolor resist background (which was the negative die cut from a different card I created earlier in the month).  


Next, I adhered the circle die cut to a yellow scallop circle die cut with pop dots.  The sentiment from Gill-Friend was stamped in black ink onto green cardstock, trimmed on the ends and adhered to the card front with pop dots.  To finish up, I embellished with silver enamel dots.

 

Have a great one!

Congrats!


Hello! I'm popping in to share a fun little card I created using the new Gill-Friend stamp set from The Alley Way Stamps.

To create my card, I started by die cutting a large tag shape from light gray CS, then adhering it to a white card base.  Next, I stamped the dolphin image in stazon gray ink, then colored it in with watercolor pencils.  While the image was drying, I stamped the sentiment from Jibber Jabber in versamark before heat embossing with white powder.  The sentiment strip was then adhered to the card front with pop dots.


I then die cut three paisley shapes to use as water splashes from aqua CS, covered them with glossy accents, then filled them in with a variety of sequins and beads.  Next, I added some black and white dots to the dolphin for added interest, fussy cut it out, then adhered it to the card front upside down.  Once the paisleys were dry, I adhered them to the card front before finishing up by embellishing with some orange gems.

   

Have a great one!

RC Blog Hop - Shine!


Hello! Release day is upon us and all of the Reverse Confetti goodies we've been previewing for the past few days are available for sale!! :) It's the 8th of the month, which means it's also blog hop time.  The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog, and you should have made it here from Wanda’s blog. (If you'd like to start at the beginning of the hop, please click here.)

To create my card, I started by first stamping some of the flower and leaf images from Love Blooms and Petals 'n Posies in red, pink, orange, teal, yellow and lime inks.  Once that was done, I masked off portions of one of the amazing sentiments from God is Good as I inked it up with black, red and teal ink.  



Next, I adhered the stamped sentiment to a piece of lime CS, then adhered it to the stamped card front.  To finish up, I embellished with purple enamel dots.





I hope you've enjoyed hopping with us today. Be sure and hop with us on the 8th of every month for more Reverse Confetti inspiration! Now it’s time to hop on over to Tara Godfrey’s blog. If you get lost along the way, you can find the hop order and list of all the participating designers over on the Reverse Confetti blog.
