Reverse Confetti-June Stock Your Stash Challenge
I'm thrilled to continue with my guest designing with Reverse Confetti for the month of June. Today, I am sharing three projects I made for the Stock Your Stash challenge for this month. The themes are Hello & Just Because. For my designs, I didn't have any Hello/Just Because dies or stamps in my Reverse Confetti stash, so I thought a little wider than that and designed cards for you that are outside of a normal birthday card. Sincere Condolences, I'm Proud of You & Hope.
Here is the Roses Stamp coloured with Copic sketch markers. The stamp has this magnificent floral arrangement and has four sentiments in the stamp set that are really useful. I think sympathy cards can be a challenge at times, so I decided to make one with this set for that reason. For that beige panel behind the florals, you will see I embossed the Folklore Cover Panel and cut it out using the coordinating frame confetti cut that is also part of this bundle. This Roses Bundle set is one of my favourites in the whole Reverse Confetti release. Its not cutsie but an extremely practical stamp and die set to have in your stash that you can go to again and again.
Okay, so it's been graduation season and the Circle Gift Card Holder should have been put to good use I think! When I saw this little guy with glasses on from the Love Wins Stamp Set and that wonderful sentiment, I thought it paired perfectly on a card with a gift card attached. This is a simple card design, and I think that is okay, don't you? I stamped a white panel with the little heart stamp from the Love Wins set in different colours, then coloured the little guy to compliment it. I die cut the Circle Gift Card Holder, then added the sentiment....Voila! Easy peasy, lemon squeazy!
This is another of my favourites in the Reverse Confetti release - A Beautiful Day. Again, every stamp stash should have butterflies in it! This technique is a commonly used one in cardmaking. You heat emboss the stamped images in white then, use your choice of inks and blend them over the top of the dried white heat embossing. It reveals such gorgeous results. I chose to use two inks and alternated them for a gradient effect. So pretty. You will see I also add an embossed sentiment along with my images at the beginning so, when all the ink blending was done all I needed to do was cut the card base and add some bling.
Well, I hope I have inspired you to create something for the Reverse Confetti Stock Your Stash Challenge for this month?
