Welcome, 'Fetti Fans to Day 2 of the August Release for Reverse Confetti!
Because there wasn't a release in July, this month is a fantastic double release,
with seven new stamps sets & twelve new Confetti Cuts!
Today, we're showcasing a wonderful sentiment set that's perfect for
creating those hard to make sympathy cards called Forever In Our Hearts.
We're also introducing a sweet new set with coordinating Confetti Cuts
called In a Jam.
First up, I made a sympathy card using Forever In Our Hearts.
I wanted to keep my card simple so the focus would be on that beautiful sentiment!
I started by blending two shades of ink onto my watercolour panel
and spritzing it with water.
Then, I used a paintbrush with more water to blend them together better.
Once it was dry, I stamped my sentiment in versafine onyx black ink
several times, using my MISTI.
A few rainstones finishes it off.
Next, I used the same sentiment and made this card:
I created the background the same way that I did on my previous card.
I trimmed a piece of white cardstock and on it, I stamped my sentiment
in three different colours -- this was relatively easy to do using washi tape
to mask off my sentiment while I inked it up and my MISTI.
I added a frame that I diecut using the new All Framed Up Confetti Cuts.
I diecut a few clouds using Sun 'n Clouds Confetti Cuts.
Next, I have a card that I made using In a Jam with its coordinating Confetti Cuts: Jam Jar.
I started by blending ink onto a piece of watercolour paper and diecutting
it using the jar dies from Jam Jar Confetti Cuts.
I stamped the gingham pattern in pink using one of the stamps
from the previously released So Stripey stamp set,
which I diecut using the lid from Jam Jar Confetti Cuts.
I stamped the sentiment from In a Jam in the same colour
of pink ink twice to make it a little darker (using my MISTI) on a
Jam Jar Confetti Cuts.
I smoothed some hawaiian shores and soft stone inks onto my
background panel and added a frame using the new All Framed Up Confetti Cuts.
I diecut two cherries and stems from Love & Ice Cream Confetti Cuts
to finish off my card.
And lastly, I made another card using In A Jam.
I smooshed ink onto my watercolour panel and diecut them
using my Jam Jar Confetti Cuts.
I diecut the oval from Jam Jar Confetti Cuts and stamped it with the
fun In a Jam stamp.
I layered it over a piece of Basic Grey patterned paper, onto which
I added a little ink for some extra colour.
A couple of buttons and twine finish it off.
I'm linking this card up to the House of Cards August Challenge,
where we were to use twine and/or these colours:
That's it for today!
