TAWS Sneak Peek - Phone Home


Hello! I'm joining the other lovely ladies on the Alley Way Stamps DT today to preview the new Phone Home set, which features some super cute aliens! :)

To create my card, I started with a piece of white CS and stamped the sentiment in versamark ink before heat embossing with white powder.  I then blended various distress inks to create the background and sprinkled it with water.  I then stamped a bunch of little aliens in stazon gray ink, then colored them with watercolor pencils.  While the images were drying, I die cut a circle from the center of a white CS layer.


Once the images were dry, I fussy cut them out, then adhered them to the back of the die cut panel.  The distressed background was adhered to a white card base with pop dots, then the die cut panel was adhered on top.  To finish up, glossy accents were added to each alien's eye, as well as stickle dots on each antenna.

Hello


Hello! I'm popping in to share a quick card I created using some goodies from The Alley Way Stamps.

To create my card, I started with a piece of white CS, and stamped it using different colored inks and line widths from Crossing Lines to create a plaid pattern.  Once that was done, the panel was trimmed and adhered to a white card base.


I then stamped the large sentiment from BIG Chatter in versamark ink onto white CS, then heat embossed with platinum powder.  The sentiment was then fussy cut and adhered to the card front using pop dots.  To finish up, I embellished with aqua enamel dots.

 

Have a great one!

Happy Spring


Hello! I'm so happy spring is finally here... Though we started off a little rough (cold and snow), today's temps were downright gorgeous! Lol, not that I really had a chance to enjoy it, being sick as a dog and firmly planted in my bed.  But I did love the 2 minutes I was outside picking up my kiddo from the bus stop. :)

For my card today, I used a bunch of goodies from Reverse Confetti, including their Spring Fling Quick Card Panels.  These panels are awesome! I made this card a few days before I got sick, and it came together so quickly.  At first, I wasn't sure how I'd incorporate these panels into my designs because I'm such a simple stamper, but I'm totally converted now.  Love them!

To create my card, I matted one of the Spring Fling Quick Card Panels onto white CS, then adhered it to a yellow card base.  Next, I stamped one of the birds from The Tweet Life onto white CS with stazon gray ink, then colored it with watercolor pencils.  



While I was waiting for the image to dry, I die cut several banner pieces using the Double Banner Garland Confetti Cuts, and adhered them together before attaching them to the card front.  Once the image was dry, I ran it through my die cut machine using The Tweet Life Confetti Cuts, then adhered it to the QCP.  To finish up, I covered the bird's belly with stickles, then embellished with coral enamel dots.

Have a great one!

Bunny Pillow Box Packaging


Hello! I'm popping in to share a CAS pillow box that I created using goodies from Whisker Graphics and Reverse Confetti.

I started with a standard kraft pillow box, and carefully disassembled it so I could pass it through my die cut machine with the bunny from the More Than Jellybeans Confetti Cuts.  I then cut off the front of a Pink Diagonal Striped Bigger Bitty Bag, and ran it through my die cut machine with the bunny die as well.  



I adhered a piece of vellum to the back of the kraft pillow box, then reassembled the box, covering with the custom wrapping paper.  To finish up, I embellished with some Green Solid Divine Twine.  Easy peasy!

Have a great one!

Hello


Hello! I'm popping in to share a card I created using the beautiful dream catcher from the Alley Ways Stamps' Wigwam set.

To create my card, I started with a piece of watercolor paper, and heat embossed the dream catcher in white after stamping with versamark ink.  I then covered the embossed image with water, and added dabs of distress ink.  To speed up the drying process, I zapped the image again with my heat gun. 


I then covered a white card base front with black patterned paper.  Next, I adhered the watercolor resist image to a yellow CS layer, then attached it to the card front with pop dots.  To finish up, I die cut my sentiment from pink patterned paper, and adhered it to the card base below the image.

Have a great one!

Love You More Than Jellybeans...


Hello! I'm popping in to share a sweet card I made with one of my favorite bunnies in the More Than Jellybeans set from Reverse Confetti.  I just think that expression is so cute! 

To create my card, I started by stamping one of the stripe strips from So Stripey in light gray ink onto white CS to create a background.  I then adhered it to a piece of mint CS before attaching them to the card front with pop dots.



The bunny image was stamped in versamark ink onto mint CS, then heat embossed with white powder.  I then used the coordinating More Than Jellybeans Confetti Cuts to cut out the bunny, then adhered it to the card front with pop dots.  To finish up, I embellished with silver enamel dots.


 



Have a great one!

March SFYTT - Hello Sunshine


Hello! I was working on this a few days ago, and I didn't know it at the time, but this card is *perfect* for today... With blue skies and temps near 70, it's a hello sunshine kind of day indeed! :)

I created this card using this month's Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT) from Reverse Confetti, and one of the newest Spring Fling Quick Card Panels which I embellished.  To create this card, I started by die cutting a sun and clouds from yellow and white CS using the Sun 'n Clouds Confetti Cuts.  I then die cut a light gray CS circle using the Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts, and adhered the die cuts together before attaching them to a Spring Fling Quick Panel Card using pop dots.



Next, I cut a strip of medium gray CS, trimmed the ends, then adhered them to the back of the QCP.  The layer was then adhered to the card base using pop dots, and the sun was covered with stickles.  To finish up, I embellished with silver enamel dots.


 


Want to play along with us this month and be entered to win a $20 GC to the RC store? All you need to do is create a card based on the sketch below using RC stamps, and link it up to the post HERE on the Reverse Confetti blog by noon CST on the 29th... Easy peasy! :)
