Right at Home One Year Birthday Celebration Blog Hop!


Welcome to the Right at Home Stamps One Year Birthday Blog Hop!  I am so happy to help Nicole celebrate this milestone of releasing her first stamp set in the Right at Home collection.  Along with the rest of the Right at Home DT, I am sharing inspiration using Nicole's follow-up to her very popular set called Happy Mail.  The second version is called Happy Mail 2 and is so very adorable!

I decided to use the tiny solid envelope stamp in RAINBOW colors to help celebrate!  All inks are pigment inks from Avery Elle.  The coverage is just fantastic.  My stamped panel was trimmed down and adhered with foam adhesive to a trimmed standard notecard.  I love this sentiment which I've stamped with StazOn onto vellum and adhered with clear adhesive foam.  

Make sure to visit all the links below for lots more inspiration and your chance to win these stamps!

With Sympathy

With Sympathy 

Hello!  I am sharing a card using more of the same set I featured during the Avery Elle and Pretty Pink Posh collaboration blog hop.  I just love The Reef stamps and coordinating The Reef Elle-ments from Avery Elle.  They are perfect to pair with the set called With Sympathy for those difficulty cards to make!Avery Elle

I started with a piece of trimmed Tim Holtz watercolor paper.  Using a grey pigment ink, I stamped the coral images around the bottom and then loosely colored Tumbled Glass Distress Ink over the panel.  My shell and starfish were stamped in this same gey pigment ink and die cut.  These were added with foam adhesive.  The "with sympathy" die from Avery Elle is just gorgeous in this font.  It was die cut out of dark grey cardstock and adhered.  A tiny strip with a finishing sentiment from With Sympathy was adhered with foam adhesive.  To finish, I added some iridescent confetti randomly with a glue pen.  It gives just the right amount of shine for a sympathy card.

Pretty Pink Posh + Avery Elle = ♥♥


Welcome to the 2-day collaboration blog hop between Pretty Pink Posh and Avery Elle!  These are 2 fantastic companies and I am thrilled to be able to work with both of them!  You should have arrived on the blog hop from Lisa Elton's blog.  If not, visit either the Pretty Pink Posh blog or Avery Elle blog for complete list of participants!

I worked with the The Reef stamp set and Coral Reef dies from Avery Elle and paired them with the Scalloped Rectangles from Pretty Pink Posh to create a fun underwater scene.   I first watercolored some pieces of paper and used those for diecutting out my pieces.  I loosely watercolored another piece of paper to resemble my underwater scene.  Using a Misti tool, makes stamping a sentiment on watercolor paper a breeze!  And a project just isn't complete without some Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh!



There are 2 $25 Pretty Pink Posh gift certificates and 2 $25 Avery Elle gift certificates up for grabs. Winners will be picked randomly along the blog hop.  Comments must be left by July 24, 2016. Winners will be announced on the PPP and Avery Elle blogs.

Make sure to visit Nina-Marie Trapani as the next person on the blog hop!

Hello!  Reverse Confetti is celebrating summer with a 20% off sale from now until July 10th!  Everything in stock on their site is included in the sale with the exception of New Release products.  What have you been holding off getting?  Now's the time!  Check out the REVERSE CONFETTI blog for more details and to see who's sharing a project today!

When it came time to choose some older products to use.......I knew I wanted to use the Triple Chevies Confetti Cuts and a newer set called Butterfly Dreams.  I went bold with a pop of color.  Using some shades of purple pigment inks, I stamped my butterfly several times with each color with my Misti.  The top color being darker around the edges.  Sort of the old rock 'n roll technique but the Misti just brings this technique to life!


We also thought it would be fun to share a few of our FAVORITE RC products.  Here's the graphics of some of my favorites---

Here's the list of the Confetti Crew sharing today:
