CONFETTI CREATIVE HOP


Hello and Welcome to the Reverse Confetti monthly hop!
This month, we are celebrating SUMMER FUN! Mermaids, sea life, sunshine, summer cocktails, and more -- there's something for everyone!
The hop starts right here, and you'll find the full hop list at the end of this post. 


And I have a sea card to share with you today. 
For my card I played with the Sealiously stamp setAs always I started with preparing all details of the card. I stamped and colored this cute stamps with my Copic markers onto Premier Polar White Cardstock, cut them all with Sealiously Confetti Cuts. I really like the Premier Polar White Cardstock for the Copic coloring! 
Then I've made the window with Dashed Line Tag Confetti Cuts and I've gathered the shaker. However, at first I wanted to give the texture of the background. So I did a dry embossing using dies in the form of clouds from the same set. 
When the background was done, I've put it on foamed scotch, and filled with sequins, drops and seed beads. 
Also I stuck the images on the card. And added a sentiment. 
Voila, the card is ready.



Have fun hoping along with all the designers today!

2018 SPRING \ SUMMER COFFEE LOVERS BLOG HOP WITH STUDIO KATIA

                                                   Today I'm playing along with the 


Studio Katia is giving away TWO $25 Gift Certificates to our Store!
For all the info about winners and linking up, please head to 2018 SPRING | SUMMER COFFEE LOVERS BLOG HOP!

You can head over to the Coffee Lovers Blog for more details on how to play along! 

And here's what I created:




I used our  Sweet Latte stamp set to create a fun cofee shaker card. This set of stamps has a whole bunch of cute images on  the coffee theme and it's always hard to decide which one to use! 
So I carefully picked my stamp images. Colored them with Copics and trimmed them out with the Sweet Latte Coordinating Die Set.  


Then I made an improvisation of the cupboard using Dotted Patterns: Scallop Square Creative Dies. Then I gathered a shaker that filled with Crystal StarsGold Crystals, Mint Dream Crystals MixCupid's Kiss Crystals Mix and Radiant Pineapple Flowers
And I put that design on the base. Added the sentiment, It sounds like this: Coffee. You inspire me. I cut out the word "COFFEE" using  Coffee Scrip Creative Dies.



Hope you enjoyed my coffee card today!

STOCK YOUR STASH Challenge. Reverse Confetti


Hello Fetti Friends!   I am sharing with you today my take on the Reverse Confetti Stock Your Stash challenge.  This month the theme is Birthday.


There will be a new Stock Your Stash challenge posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 1st of each month.
The sketch link list will be open from the 1st until noon CST on the 29th of the month. The link list will be on each of the STOCK YOUR STASH posts.
Reverse Confetti stamps and/or Confetti Cuts are required to win.  This is a way we get to thank our customers for using our stamps.  Anyone is welcome to play, though!

And for my card I used the lovely Honey Bear stamp set. I love the little bears in this stamp set, they are so fun! 
 It is very simple card, so if you decide to repear it, be sure that you'll do it quickly, but you'll get a lot of pleasure from both the process and the result. 


I started with stamping a bear and a friendly buzzing bee with a and lots of apples, trees, a pot of honey and a basket with apples from Honey Bear stamp set onto the Premier Polar White cardstock, coloring stamps with Copic markers and die cutting them with Honey Bear Confetti Cuts


To create the background I blended the front panel with Baby Blue Dye Ink Pad. I then adhered it to the card base and foam mounted the images and stamped the sentiment.



You still have a few days to play in the Stock Your Stash challenge and opportunity to win $20.00 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store.   All the details can be found on the Reverse Confetti blog!  I hope you get a chance to play along!!!  

Have a good day!





STUDIO KATIA 2ND ANNIVERSARY BLOG HOP

Welcome to Studio Katia 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop Day 2! 
How exciting to be a part of this Days! YAY!
I am on the design team for the second year already. And I'm very proud of Studio Katia!


To celebrate Studio Katia is giving away TWO $100 CAD Gift Certificates every day of the Blog Hop! That’s FOUR chances to win. The winners will be chosen randomly from comments left on all blogs of our Blog Hop.

And for today I made this long fun sea card. 
For my card I played with Under the Sea Stamp SetAs always I started with preparing all details of the card. I stamped and colored stamps, cut them with Under the Sea Coordinating Dies
The last step was to make the background: I blended it with blue, yellow and brown inks, sprinkled it with some water and watercolor and trimmed the piece to be just smaller than the card base. I cut and scored a card base from thecraft cardstock and it was slightly smaller than a long sized envelope. 
Then I glued all the details. Also I embelish the card with March Crystals and googly eyes - are just perfect to add to the images as another fun detail.
I really like the elongated shape of the card. So it turned out to place more images on it to better show the inner sea world.
