Countdown to Confetti: You Are a Star & Posted Note Sentiments

Hey, 'Fetti Fans, welcome to Day 2 of the July Release for Reverse Confetti


This is such a fabulous release, with five new stamp sets and six new Confetti Cuts!
Lots of sweet goodness coming this month!

Today, we are introducing two fun new sets with coordinating Confetti Cuts: 
You Are a Star & Posted Note Sentiments.

I decided to use both of these new sets together to make my card.

I've was inspired to make it by the confetti wall treatments
I've been noticing lately, like this one:


I decided instead of circles, though, to use the stars from You Are a Star.

Countdown to Confetti: You Are a Star & Posted Note Sentiments Leigh Penner @leigh148 #reverseconfetti @reverseconfetti

I started with a base of sweet blush cardstock.
Then I stamped my stars in versa mark and embossed them in gold.
Originally, I'd planned to just have the large sentiment star from You Are a Star
in the centre, but something is off with my gold embossing powder
and it wasn't terribly clear.
So, I added the sentiment from Posted Note Sentiments in Versafine onyx black
and then heat embossed it with black embossing powder.

Love how you were able to change direction when the large star didn't turn out the way you had expected; Beautiful card.

Cynthia Daugherty said...

all the little stars make the sentiment very noticeable, and it's such a special sentiment

Mary Holshouser said...

I think the black sentiment works great.
It really pops off the page.
All of the stars in gold are so pretty.
thanks for sharing.

This is a great card! A great lesson for me in how to create a background without owning a background die or stamp. Thank you.

Jill Norwood said...

Love your confetti stars card! So sweet!

Kathy said...

Gold stars on pink paper...a very good idea. I'm working on doing more embossing, so will keep this in mind for another card. Really love! :)

Vicki said...

Such a great way to use the stamps and sentiments together. Love how you chose blush card stock instead of white. Really pretty!

Your gold 'confetti' stars, on the delicate pink background...so pretty! Wouldn't this be lovely in a bedroom...with pink and gold bedding, and maybe just a pop of black - say a lamp - for a bit of drama? Oh my...now I want to renovate our place (which it needs desperately...actually, beyond desperately!)...
