Reverse Confetti / CASology: Ocean


Sharing this very CAS card for one of my favorite challenges:  CASology.  The idea is clean white space with one main image.  This card literally came together in 5 minutes!

I created this with an older stamp set from Reverse Confetti called SeasideMy octopus was stamped in an ombre ink from Hero Arts and die cut with coordinating dies.  The background was created by ink blending Evergreen Bough and Faded Jeans Distress Inks and die cutting with the Scallop Stripe Panel Confetti Cut

Avery Elle / Cake For All

Cake For All

Hello!  I am here today sharing a card using the Cake For All stamps.  This is a perfect set for so many occasions!  

I've colored this up with one of my favorite color combos......purple and green.  These were my wedding colors so I had to make a card using them!  I began by ink blending Wilted Violet Distress Ink over a white panel.  Using the Confetti Mat Elle-ments, the ink blended panel was die cut.

I did some basic coloring of my floral sprays and highlighting of my cake.  I added all my elements to the Confetti Mat panel with foam adhesive and added purple gems over my panel and to embellish the cake.

Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me!

SugarPea Designs / Mix It Up Challenge #53


I have a card to share for this month's Mix It Up Challenge for SugarPea Designs.  This inspiration photo and colors are perfect for a spring celebration!

The cake pops instantly reminded me of a party and balloons!  I stamped and die cut the balloons from Birthday Balloons in the inspiration colors using Lawn Fawn inks.  To follow the sketch in the challenge, I added a die cut circle to an ink blended panel that was die cut using the Card Front Element Builder.  I drew balloon strings with a ruler, added my balloons and sentiment strip with foam adhesive.  As a final touch, I added some coordinating colored gems!

Avery Elle / Llamazing


I am here today sharing a 'llamazing' card with you!  These llamas from Avery Elle are the cutest and there are several images in the set that you can use to embellish can even make a 'llama-corn'!  ☺

I created a sunset background with some ink blending of Dried Marigold and Mustard Seed Distress Inks and then die cut using the Ray Elle-ments.  I made my sun a bit darker using more of the Dried Marigold.  My images were Copic colored and die cut with the coordinating dies and were added over a white heat embossed sentiment strip of black cardstock.

Technique Tuesday / Robbie the Raccoon

Robbie the Raccoon2 

I have one more card from the March release from Technique Tuesday.  Are you familiar with the Animal House Stamps?  There is a whole category of them from Technique Tuesday!

This month is Robbie the Raccoon and ton of fun punny sentiments to pair with him!  I created a very simple scene and some ink blending using Distress Inks.  I created a grass border using the Threaded Crafting Dies and stamped his "paws" up the panel.  My images were Copic colored and die cut using the coordinating dies.  For a little whimsy, I added some stamped stars from an older stamp set.

Reverse Confetti / Stock Your Stash (Easter/Spring)


Hello!  I am sharing a card for the Reverse Confetti.......Stock Your Stash Challenge!  
Every month will be a new theme and this month we are showcasing Easter and Spring!  Don't we all wish SPRING were here!

I just had to use these cuties from Spring Pals again for this challenge however I paired it up with several other sets from this line.  

I started out coloring some of the critters from the set with Copics and went from there to create my card.  I chose the frog and duck images.  To bring out the green, I ink blended some Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink onto a white rectangle panel.  This color matches perfectly with the polka dot paper from the new pad Darling Dots.  I created a frame for my scene using the Stitched Note & Frames Confetti Cuts.  I added a cute sun from Think Pink, clouds from Weather it Together, and a sentiment from Hippity Hoppity.  I just love how this turned out!


Make sure to go check out all the information on the Stock Your Stash Challenge over on the Reverse Confetti blog-------HERE!

Today I get to share a fun RAINBOW card........creating a card with rainbow colors just makes me happy!

Stitched Note & Frames has amazing frames but here I've used the inside part of the die, the stitched lines panel.  This panel was perfect to stamp all the celebrate, birthday wishes sentiments from Word Up.  I added this panel to a notecard that was lined with rainbow striped paper from Cue the Confetti paper pad.  I added a few die cut balloons from Boxes 'n Balloons along with some strings.  My bold die cut sentiment is from the new word duo set called Hooray & Cheers Confetti Cuts.  I added a white layer in behind my black sentiment to make it pop along with some white detail lines.
