RC Blog Hop - Happy Birthday


It’s the 8th of the month –Blog Hop time from Reverse Confetti! The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog, and you should have made it here from Sarah Gough’s blog. It would be worth your while to start at the beginning of the hop, so you don’t miss a thing. We have tons of inspiration for you to see using all of Reverse Confetti’s amazing stamp sets!

To create my card, I started with a turquoise card base, and added a strip of dark gray floral patterned paper.  I then stamped one of the stripe images from So Stripey in yellow ink onto white cardstock before adhering it to the card front.




Next, I stamped one of the sentiments from Lots to Say, as well as the banner image from Happy Harbor, in versamark ink before embossing with white powder.  Once that cooled, I then stamped one of the polka dot images from Whole Lotta Dots onto the gray panel, and heat embossed with clear powder.  To finish up, I added some turquoise twine and embellished with some 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 Julia Stainton’s blog.
