Hey, 'Fetti Fans, welcome to Day 3 of the March Release for Reverse Confetti!
This is such a fabulous release, with five new stamp sets and seven new Confetti Cuts!
Lots of sweet goodness coming this month!
Today, we are introducing two new sets with coordinating Confetti Cuts:
a fabulous sentiment set called Shine Bright and a sweet "bee-themed" set called The Buzz.
First up, I'm sharing the cards that I made using The Buzz.
I diecut the white panel using the largest scalloped circle from Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts.
On the aqua mist panel, I adhered a Spring Fling Quick Card Panel that I trimmed down.
I stamped my sentiment from The Buzz.
I stamped the bee from The Buzz on some vellum (which I diecut using the coordinating Confetti Cuts) and heat embossed it in black.
Then, I used a marker and coloured in the back of the bee.
To adhere the bee, I used some dimensional adhesive behind the bee's head and behind his stinger.
For my next card, I decided to combine two techniques: smooshing & paper-piecing.
I stamped the striped on my background using one of the stamps from So Stripey.
I diecut the aqua mist cardstock using the journaling card die from Documented Confetti Cuts.
On it, I stamped my sentiment, beehive and three little bees.
On a piece of white cardstock, I used the smooshing technique to watercolour my paper
with some summer sunrise ink.
When this was dry, I stamped the bees and hive and fussy cut them out by hand
before adhering them to my panel.
I'm really happy with how it turned out!
Next up, I have some cards that I made using the new Shine Bright stamp set and the
Sun 'n Clouds Confetti Cuts.
Here's my first card:
To start, I diecut a window using the journaling card die from Documented Confetti Cuts
from my white cardstock panel.
Then, on another piece of white cardstock, I applied some ink (lemon tart, harvest gold,
summer sunrise, hibiscus burst and aqua mist) with a Tim Holtz blending tool.
I stamped my sentiment (from Shine Bright) in Versafine Onyx Black.
I adhered my inked panel to some aqua mist cardstock and then adhered the white cardstock panel with the window using dimensional adhesive.
I diecut some clouds from the new Sun 'n Clouds Confetti Cuts and adhered those with dimensional adhesive, too.
For my next card, I did some more inking with my Tim Holtz blending tool.
To start, I ran my panel through my Big Shot with my embossing mats to impress the cloud dies
from Sun 'n Clouds Confetti Cuts into my cardstock panel.
I diecut some clouds from sticky notes and placed them over the impressed clouds before
inking the sky with aqua mist.
Using sticky notes as masks, I applied some summer sunrise ink in a start burst pattern.
I added some more diecut clouds and stamped my Shine Bright sentiment in tropical teal ink.
A few MME enamel dots finished it off.
When I was putting the enamel dots on my card, I had chosen three colours: yellow,
aqua and teal.
Sage was watching and suggested I use the silver one. She has such a great eye!
And lastly, I made this card:
Once again, I applied some summer sunrise and Hawaiian shores ink to my background using
my Tim Holtz blending tool.
I stamped my sentiment (from Shine Bright) on my card front using my MISTI.
Then, I flipped my card over and stamped it again.
One at a time, I placed my diecut sun and clouds (from the Sun 'n Clouds Confetti Cuts)
on the card back and stamped again with the MISTI.
Then, I was able to adhere my diecuts to the front of my card.
I used Tombow mono adhesive dots for the sun and then dimensional adhesive for the clouds.
I'm loving how this turned out -- and how quick and easy this was to stamp using my MISTI!
That's it for today!
