CONFETTI CREATIVE HOP

Hello and Welcome to the August Confetti Creative hop! This month's blog hop features ABC projects!  Anything But a Card (ABC)


You'll find the full hop list at the end of this post. 


For today, I made a fun interactive card where the crab moves in a circle.

For my card I played with the Let's Shellabrate stamp set and Pool Confetti Cuts. As always I started with preparing all details of the card. I stamped and colored the stamps with Copic markers onto Premier Polar White Cardstock, cut them all with Let's Shellabrate Confetti Cuts


Then I've made the cloud panel using Flamingo, Piggy Bank, Bellini, Sunshine, Bumblebee and Magenta Dye Inks. And immediately I cut a hole for the movement of the crab in a circle.


Also I cut a semicircle out of craft paper and lightly toned it around the edges using Sand Dye Ink. Then I toned a piece of paper with Island Blue Dye Ink and made a lake using Pool Confetti Cuts.


When all the details of the card was done, I've put the cloud panel on foamed scotch, made an interactive element and adhered all images on the card. And stamped a sentiment. 



Have fun hoping along with all the designers today!  
 The complete hop list is below!

REVERSE CONFETTI JULY NEW RELEASE CREATIVE HOP

Hello, friends! Today we are celebrating the new Reverse Confetti July Release.


Greetings, 'Fetti Fans and HAPPY RELEASE DAY!  We're so excited about all of the new products that are now available in store.  We're sharing some more inspiration using all of the new goodies.  There is a full link list at the bottom of this post.


My card for today features Lemonade Stand stamp set with Lemonade Stand Confetti Cuts. I love this set, especially the lemonade stand. So I decided to make a card with a lemonade lawn - what we need in the hot summer days!


I started with the preparing background. To begin with, I stamped two lemonade stand on the sides, replacing some parts inside and covered them with a mask. I than ink-blended background with the Piggy Bank, Bellini, Parakeet and Grass Dye Inks and sprinkled it with watercolor.


I stamped the images with black ink, colored them with copic markers and die cut with coordinating dies. Next, I mounted the images on my panel with foam tape. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment and embellished my card with some sequinses.

REVERSE CONFETTI JULY RELEASE WEEK DAY 3


Welcome back to Day 3 of the Reverse Confetti July Release Week



Today we have 2 final stamp set reveals. Each of these sets is great on it's own, but when you put them together some real (paper) magic happens!


So today we're featuring the new Sentimental Sayings stamp set, Bold Blooms stamp set
 with Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set.





For my card I used only Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set.  This is an experimental card, made exclusively from coordinating dies. I'll get my stamp set a little later, so I decided to try using only dies in the card.  
The result I was satisfied, flowers perfectly formed into layers and get a gorgeous bouquet in a vase. For the vase I used coordinating die from the Cotton & Thistles Confetti Cuts. 


I started with coloring the vase using ZiG markers and pencils and splattered it with white paint. Next I blended Baby Blue, Mist, Island Blue and Sand Dye Inks on my background and then splattered it with watercolor and white paint. 

Next I started preparing the flowers. First, I toned a lot of pieces of paper in the desired shades, sprinkled all the water, watercolor and white paint. Once it was dry, I die cut the flowers and glued them together using liquid glue. I repeated the process for the leaves. 

For more realism of my composition, I added two strips of paper from the Fun Times 6x6 Pad to make it look like a vase standing on the table. 

Then, I adhered the flowers and the leaves on the panel. And to finished my card I heat embossed sentiment from the new Sentimental Sayings stamp set and added it on my card.
