Reverse Confetti New Release Blog Hop

Hey there, 'Fetti Fans!
Welcome to the Reverse Confetti March New Release Blog Hop!

We have tons of inspiration for you to see using all of the new Reverse Confetti 
stamp sets & dies, which are available to purchase today!

For my blog hop projects, I have two cards to share.
The first one uses the new Whole Lotta Happy
& Rose Garden stamp set and coordinating Confetti Cuts.

I started by stamping my background with the largest rose stamp from Rose Garden
as well as one of the leaves.
I did a little masking to add the leaf.
I then stamped the medium size rose and leaves onto their coordinating Confetti Cuts.

I've had the tag (from Crate Paper) in my stash for a while now.
I stamped the sentiments (from Whole Lotta Happy)
onto it in versafine onyx black ink.
I added a little twine and adhered it to my card.

And my next card features the adorable Unicorn Wishes stamp set.

I had to much fun making this card!

I diecut the clouds from Sun 'n Clouds Confetti Cuts repeatedly from a piece of
lighter-weight cardstock to created a stencil.
I used the negative (top part) to layer over my cardstock background
and blended pink ink to created my clouds.
I would repeat this process and simply move the stencil over to add some variety.

I stamped the unicorn from Unicorn Wishes onto its coordinating diecut
and coloured it in with some Delicata Golden Glitz ink mixed with water and a paintbrush.

I heat embossed the sentiment (from Unicorn Wishes) in white on a strip of black cardstock.
I diecut the star from the Unicorn Wishes Confetti Cuts and painted it gold,
just like the unicorn.
I also painted a couple of wooden stars.

It was hard to capture the shine on camera -- but it's super fun in real life!
