Reverse Confetti Summer Fun Blog Hop!


Blog Hop2 

Hi everyone!  Welcome to the Reverse Confetti Summer Fun Blog Hop!  This month we are taking the hop and adding SUNSHINE and SUMMER!  


Nothing speaks more to me during summer than a nice cool drink!  Specifically a margarita.  Today my husband and I are hosting a party for a bunch of friends and the margarita machine is already in full swing!  :)  

Blog Hop1


I thought it would be fun to dig out some fun glasses and add a touch of Reverse Confetti in the form of tags for them!  I've used Pineapples Aplenty and coordinating Confetti Cuts.  Since I'm packing up my craft room to move, I had to go on a hunt for my Shrink Film.  I used matte shrink film and sanded it down per the directions.  I stamped my pineapple image with PIGMENT ink, diecut, and added a tiny hole with a hole punch, and then baked at 275 degrees for about 3 mins.  It was so fun to do some "shrinky dinks" again!

I tied them to my fancy glass with some twine.

I also played around with the Pineapples Aplenty for a quick card.  I stamped and diecut my pineapple and set aside.  My blue layer was stamped using So Stripey in white pigment ink.  I layered my image over some diecut circles from Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts and added some black gems.

Such a cute idea. I love the shrinky dink throwback. Because they're plastic, they would be protected from the sweaty glasses. Very nice!
