Reverse Confetti June Blog Hop

Welcome to the Reverse Confetti June Blog Hop!

We have tons of inspiration for you to see using Reverse Confetti products!

For the hop, I decided use this sketch 
to make five cards using Rose Garden.

One of my close friends moved away to B.C. last month,
Before she left, she wanted me to make 10 sympathy cards for her,
so I challenged myself to make some using this sketch.

For my first card, I decided to stamp my own background using Rose Garden
I cut my panel apart and layered them over a piece of Stone Cardstock.

I heat embossed the sentiment from Rose Garden in white onto a piece of Midnight Cardstock
that I had diecut using the Shakers 'n Frames Confetti Cuts.

For my next card, I created my panel by blending Sand Ink onto Cloud White Cardstock
using the new Leaf Lattice Stencil.
I stamped the sentiment onto a diecut I made using Round Top Tag Confetti Cuts.

I added some twine, a button and a couple of Rose Garden leaves stamped in Sand Ink

On this card, I created my panels by stamping a leaf from Rose Garden
onto Stone Cardstock and heat embossing them in white.

I heat embossed the sentiment from Rose Garden in white onto a piece of Midnight Cardstock
that I had diecut using the Pop Up Circle Confetti Cuts.
 I also heat embossed the bloom and leaves from Rose Garden onto vellum diecuts.

On this card, I used a mask to blend Lime Green Ink and Iced Aqua Ink
onto my panel.
I diecut the Rose Garden Confetti Cuts from vellum and heat embossed them in white.

I stamped the sentiment directly onto my panel.

And lastly, I created this card by stamping the Rose Garden stamps, with a little masking
onto my watercolour panel and heat embossing them in gold.
I coloured them in using my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers.

I had fun colouring these flowers in, but realized that they didn't fit the tone of 
a sympathy card, so I used the other sentiment from Rose Garden instead.
I added some a couple of score lines to fit with the sketch.

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see the rest of the DT's takes on the sketch 
and to play along, if you'd like.
You have until Thursday, June 15th to link up your card.
