Hello Reverse Confetti friends! Winter may be trying to hold on for dear life, but with the hopes of spring right around the corner, there’s a fresh new release from REVERSE CONFETTI! There are 6 new stamp sets and 5 new Confetti Cuts Dies (some of which coordinate perfectly with a few of the stamp sets, too). Today, we’re hoping to put a “spring in your step” with our new release Blog Hop! The Confetti Crew, Challenge Crew and a few of our friends have sprung into action with some fabulous projects to share this month using the newest RC products. Hop along with us and catch “spring fever”!
The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog, and you should have made it here from the sweet and oh-so-talented Lisa Henke’s blog. It would be worth your while to start at the beginning of the hop, so you don’t miss a thing. We have tons of inspiration for you to see using all the new Reverse Confetti stamp sets and dies!
I decided to create my card using this month's Sketch For You to Try. Check it out:
The card base is a pale gray, the layers are white, and the patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye's Bramble Rose 6x6 paper pad. I dressed it up with a bit of pink crocheted trim and a few enamel dots.
I decided to give the bunny a curly 'do for this card. Instead of blending my Copic colors together to produce a smooth, gradient blend of color, I dabbed and scribbled the color on, creating a textured, curly effect. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Espresso Truffle ink, and added a bit of color with Copic markers. I dressed up her outfit a bit with three enamel dots as buttons on her dress.
Here are the Copic colors I used:
I mixed the warm grays with E33 on her fur to add depth and interest.
Here's a look at the inside of the card:
Inside, I added a layer of white card stock, a strip of patterned paper, stamped the image in pale green ink, and stamped the sweet sentiment in Memento Espresso Truffle ink.
I hope you’ve enjoyed hopping with us today. Be sure and hop with us on the 8th of EVERY MONTH for more REVERSE CONFETTI inspiration! Now it’s time to hop on over to my dear friend, the amazingly talented Val Stangle’s blog. If you get lost along the way, you can find the hop order and list of all the participating designers over on the Reverse Confetti blog.
A few things before you hop along though, just to keep you “in the know”…
