Reverse Confetti July New Release Creative Hop


Today we are celebrating the new Reverse Confetti July Release.
The full hop list is at the bottom of this post.  When you're done with the hop, head on over to the store.  All of the new products are available HERE.


Today we launched 5 new stamp sets, 6 new Confetti Cuts die sets and a new 6x6 paper pad.  




And for today I made this super fun card using one of my favorites Greatest Adventure stamp set. By the way, what are your favorites from this release?


As always I started with preparing all details of the card. I stamped and colored stamps, cut them with Greatest Adventure Confetti Cuts. The last step was to make the background: to do it, I cut the base into three parts - the sky, the sea part and the third part  -the beach. I than blended them with Coral Dye Ink Pad and Peach Dye Ink Pad - for the sky, Sand Dye Ink Pad - for the beach & blue ink for the sea. Also I sprinkled the delails of the background with some water. And stamped the "Everything is s'more fun with you" sentiment.
Then I glued all the details and embelish the card with some crystals. 


If you look closely, you can see the setting sun in the background, which I made brilliant by gluing glitter on top. And in the sky floating clouds - is an indispensable attribute in the background of the sea sky - made using a coordinating die from the Honey Bear Confetti Cuts.



You should have arrived from Jeanne Jachna and Eloise Blue  is your next stop.

REVERSE CONFETTI JULY RELEASE WEEK DAY 3



Welcome back to Day 3 of the Reverse Confetti July Release Week
This is going to be a Super Fun post featuring the new Greatest Adventure stamp set.


I also wanted to use some of the smaller sized die cuts from our Confetti Cuts - Dashed Line Tag Confetti Cuts. I don't know about you, but I really like to make a cards with such small windows - it's adds a little special look to a card. 
When I created this layout, I placed the tag horizontally and vertically, but not the top part. Once I have those pieces die cut out, I blended Seafoam dye with the other blue ink on each one. I also added a bit of splatter with the watercolor.


I stamped all my images and colored them with copic markers. Then, I die cut them out with the coordinating Dies. I than stamped sentiment from the stamp set. It fit in the little mod rectangle.

And finally, I can start assembling the whole card. I used my outer frame and adhered it to the card base with foam tape. Once that was done, I adhered the pieces. And finally, the images with foam tape. All finished!

REVERSE CONFETTI JULY RELEASE WEEK DAY 2


Welcome back to Day 2 of the Reverse Confetti July Release Week
Today we are showcasing two new stamp sets called Pattern Builder & Mood Floral Stack! I love when there are images with which we can create our own patterns. One only has to turn on the imagination!

But I decided to go a non-standard way and combined these two sets, creating this fun summer flower card. The modern design of this sets adds a fun twist the usual intricate layer sets that we are used to seeing. I was happy to see that the coordinating dies for this sets die cuts each and every layer of this images! Which means, your layers can be separated to add tons of dimension.


I started by stamping all the various layers separately. For the flowers I used Bumblebee Yellow dye ink and added some blue colors. The leaves were stamped in Seafoam and Mint dye inks. Then, I die cut all the various layers separately with the coordinating dies.


For the background, I blended Bumblebee YellowSeafoam, and Iced Aqua dye inks. Then, I assembled all the flowers directly onto the background with a lot of foam tape. It may have taken awhile but it was totally worth it. Look at the dimesion!


I framed the little floral scene off by cutting a piece of Stormy Cardstock above and below it. I heat embossed the sentiment from the Mood Floral Stack stamp set in white below it. Such a happy card! I love it.

Altenew July 2018 Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello! 
And welcome to my stop in the Altenew July 2018 Stencil Release Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Rubeena Ianigro's blog, however if you need a map, a full list of the blog hop is listed below.

I can’t even tell you which one is my favorite, because I love them both!  I hope to inspire and help with some of your wish list decision in my projects today. 


Let’s start with the new Elegant Swirls Stencil! I love the focus on the swirls that I have highlighted with orange color. At first I masked the backgriund and ink blended Altenew inks to create a pop of color. I then applied Nuvo glimmer paste over it and removed the mask. 


I then die cut the word "hugs" from the Script Words Die Set and heat embossed the remainder of the sentiment "Your Day is Amazing" in white embossing powder. And of course some white accents to complete this card. 



Next up, is the absolutely stunning Mega Hydrangea Stencil. The detail of these flowers are just gorgeous. 


And one more my love is a round form of the card! I decided to make this form with a beautiful background, so I made the background using Nuvo Embellishment Mousse. This card came out so romantic, tremulous and gentle. Therefore,  the sentiment here is so sincere "Because you are extra special". 



Last up are two cards featuring the new City Scene Stencil. The design of these cards is quite simple and fast, but they turned out very charming!



So to create a background for my card I used City Scene Stencil – I love how easy it is to create a backgrounds with its help. However, I wanted to make a landscape, so I combined it with Elegant Swirls Stencil and applied swirls at the top of the card - it turned out a great summer sky!


To create a sentiment I die-cut a circle out of grey cardstock, die cut Hope word in the centre and replaced it with a word cut out of white glitter cardstock and also heat embossed "never lose" and "tomorrow is better" in white embossing powder onto brown cardstock.
 In the life card looks elegant and charming!



For this card I combined the City Scene Stencil with  Birds of a Feather Stamp SetA bird, sitting in the background of a big city looks very epic, is not it? For the silhouette of the branches I used a coordinating die from the Forever and a Day Stamp Set .
