Stock Your Stash with Reverse Confetti

Hello crafty friends! Today I’m participating in the stock your stash challenge with Reverse Confetti as a Fetti Friend. The theme this month is Easter/Spring and I made something full of both.

My fun Easter card is a tall, slimline, card that I created combining the brand new Spring BunniesChalk it Up, and an older set Hippity Hoppity. I can’t say it enough, but I love the illustrations by Dawn Machell. They are cute, quirky, and absolutely adorable. But the best is that her style has stayed true and the stamps sets from years ago, can combine seamlessly with stamp sets from this release!

I stamped my images onto bright white Neenah cardstock, and colored them using a variety of Copic Markers. Next, I die cut my images using the coordinating dies, before adding small white dotted highlights.

I always make my slimline cards sized at 3.5 x 8.5, so I created some layers from colored cardstock and patterned papers in smaller increments. The striped patterned paper is actually a 6x6 piece paper from the Winter Solstice 6x6 pad that I carefully lined up to look longer. Then, I cut a piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock down to 3 x 7.75 for the image panel and inkblended my background on it. Once I was happy with the inkblending, I splattered clean water, white ink, and gold metallic ink onto it. Once dry, I adhered my images using a variety of glues. I put the largest images up front so the perspective appeared natural, and my cute cloudy sun up high in my aqua sky.

Once all my goodies were in place, I realized I didn’t leave space for the sentiment banner I had cut, so I decided to go ahead and heat emboss the sentiment onto the scene in white. I finished it off with a sprinkling of iridescent sequins.

I really adore this scene and hope that you like it as well. Thank you for stopping by,
