Countdown to Confetti: Mermaid Kisses & Seaside

Welcome, 'Fetti Fans to Day 1 of the June Release for Reverse Confetti



This month is a fantastic release, 
with four new stamps sets & seven new Confetti Cuts!

Today, we're showcasing two adorable new sets 
that both come with coordinating Confetti Cuts: 
Mermaid Kisses and Seaside.


I started by smooshing some tropical teal ink onto my white panel.
I diecut my Mermaid Kisses Confetti Cuts and stamped in the
images using versafine onyx black ink.
I coloured them in using ink pressed onto my acrylic block,
water and a paintbrush.



I embossed my lilac panel using the new Scalloped Cover Panel
Confetti Cuts and applied a little bit of lavender fields
ink with my blending tool.


One of the things that I love about the sets designed by
Dawn Machell is that the sentiments are all in the same font,
so you can easily mix and match from different sets.
Here, I paired the "happy birthday" from Monkey Business
with the fun "fin-tastic" sentiment from Mermaid Kisses.



To finish off my card, I added some rainstones, including
a trio to the flower on the mermaid's head.

For my next card, I was inspired by the current Fusion Card Challenge:
Something Blue photo and sketch to make my card:

I used the new Seaside stamp set & coordinating Seaside Confetti Cuts
to make my card, as well as the new Scalloped Tag Layer Confetti Cuts


I started by diecutting my Scalloped Tag Layer Confetti Cut from white cardsock.
I also impressed it onto a piece of watercolour paper and fussy cut it out by hand.
On the watercolour tag, I coloured it in using four Zig markers,
some water and a paintbrush.
Then, I layered the white Scalloped Tag Layer over top.


I layered it over some white cardstock that I trimmed and adhered
to my Bazzill Basics Robin's Egg cardstock.
I stamped the anchor from Seaside onto its coordinating diecut.
I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of vellum in versafine
onyx black and heat embossed it in clear.

Lastly, I have a card to share that was inspired by
I thought it was so fun!
Here's the card it inspired:

 

On a piece of fine linen cardstock, I stamped images from Seaside
and Mermaid Kisses in versamark and then heat embossed them in clear.
Then, I blended Altenew Dusk ink over top with my blending tool.
To make it have more of a "weathered wooden sign look",
I applied some cream acrylic paint to it, using a dry brush technique.


I split the panel with my trimmer and stamped the sentiment onto
another piece of fine linen cardstock, using the "Ahoy!"
from Seaside & "new baby" from the previously released Whole Lotta Happy.

I love your cards. They are so different. I love the way you used the lilac paper and embossed it with the diecut and the pretty watercolor smoosh and rainstones make a beautiful background for the pretty little mermaid. I like all the colors of blue you used in the second card. And then the last but not the least I love the idea of dry brushing the cream paint on top of the beautiful Dusk ink. It does look like a wooden panel!
