Reverse Confetti

Message from coral bunny

Hi there everyone!

Well today’s card certainly turned out a lot brighter than my usual choice of colours, don’t you think?! I decided to play along with both the Color Throwdown challenge (coral, green and kraft) and the Freshly Made Sketches challenge and somehow my card ended up on the brighter end of the colour spectrum, a bit outside my usual, more muted, comfort zone, but I guess challenges should push you too, shouldn’t they!

Anyway, this card was super easy to put together – I stamped the Reverse Confetti bunny in Abandoned Coral distress oxide ink and the cut it out with the coordinating die. Following the sketch, I cut a piece of My Mind’s Eye paper and adhered that to my base card , finishing it off with a strip of glitter paper. Once the card was assembled, I felt that kraft background needed something a little extra. As I’d already stuck  everything down, I couldn’t use my standard go-to’s (embossing/stencilling) so I pulled out a tiny bunny stamp and stamped it a few times using versamark. I do like this watermark effect and should use it more often!

I’m also entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge which has a fabulous mood board for Easter/Spring inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by!


Let your beauty run wild

Hi everyone!

When I saw the colours for this week’s Color Throwdown challenge, I immediately thought of my gorgeous Hero Arts layering Bengal tigers stamps and ended up making quite a bold card using the challenge colours (dark red, blue, golden yellow and white). I used a Hero Arts stencil for the background and fussy cut the tiger as I don’t have the coordinating dies. I used the sentiment stamp from the set but masked off the ‘wild’ and replaced it with a Reverse Confetti die cut word instead. Oh and I couldn’t resist adding a few sequins to finish it off!

Thanks for looking!
