Reverse Confetti August Blog Hop

Hey there, Reverse Confetti fans! 
It’s the 8th of the month and time for another sizzling Blog Hop
from the Confetti Crew and a few other friends. 
Summer is quickly approaching, so this is a good excuse to stay inside out of the heat
and recharge your batteries with us! 
We’ll give you a minute to grab a glass of lemonade as we hop along together
and share some crafty goodness with you!


The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog
and you should have made it here from my friend, Kathy Martin'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 Reverse Confetti's amazing stamp sets!

For today's blog hop, we were challenged to either use Reverse Confetti Background stamps  
or to use regular Reverse Confetti stamps to stamp our background.

I decided to do the latter and create a background using one of the sentiment stamps from Let's Chill


I started a kraft background and stamped my Let's Chill sentiment repeatedly 
in white and once in black.
I stamped the legs of the flamingo (from Fabulous Flamingo) in black.
I die cut the Fabulous Flaming Confetti Cuts from white card stock
and stamped them with the coordinating stamps in aqua mist  -- so fun to stamp a blue flamingo!


  

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 Amy Sheffer'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.

Would you like to win some Reverse Confetti goodies of your very own?
Leave a comment on each stop along the way for a chance
to win a $15 gift certificate to Reverse Confetti.
  Comments are open until Monday, August 11th at 5pm CST, and 
the winner will be announced on the Reverse Confetti Blog on Tuesday!

A few things before you hop along though, just to keep you “in the know”…
The August Sketch For You To Try is open for you to play along.  Click here for a chance to win.  
AND, there will be a new Colour Challenge posted on August 16th and another way to win!

Celebrate the creative side of you!

Thanks for looking!
