Hello crafty friends! Today is release day for Reverse Confetti and they are celebrating their 50th release with a Blog Hop. I’m so honored to be participating this release as a Fetti Friend. I am a long time fan of this great company. I’ve shared many cards over the past few day using the new products and I have a new card to share today using a combination of images from several sets.
I wanted to make a fun Crafty Card that I could send, and although it wasn’t my intention to make a Valentine-ish card, it sort of resembled one when I was done. But that’s ok, everyday is the perfect day to send a hug and some handcrafted love.I stamped several cute critter characters and craft supplies from multiple sets. Chalk it Up, Crafty Critters, and the large pencil from School Days. I colored all of the images with copic markers in colors to match with a sheet of Sweet as Sugar patterned paper. After die cutting with the coordinating dies, I added small white dot highlights. I stamped a sentiment onto a little white banner using worn lipstick distress oxide ink, then mounted the banner and several of the small accessories onto die cut fun foam shapes. I love creating these thick 3D sticker like images. They give so much dimension.
I gently inked a little antique linen ink onto the edges of a small white panel, then splattered with watery distress oxides. Then I layered this panel onto some textured pink cardstock, and finally onto the patterned paper. I arranged my images and adhered them with liquid glue. Using the adhesive backing of the fun foam to mount my “thick” foam shapes. I finished it off with a small sprinkling of iridescent clear sequins.
I love how this turned out and how all of Dawn Machell’s illustrations work perfectly together. Here is a recap of the previous cards I shared during the countdown to Confetti. Make sure you hop along the Design Teams posts, to see this entire release, in its glory.
Thank you for stopping by,
