Reverse Confetti

Sealiously Amazing

Hello again everyone!

Next today I’m playing along with the colour challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches. It’s such a fun palette, but it did take me quite a while to decide what to create!

I had toyed with using this beautiful Simply Graphic seal die for another challenge this week, but in the end decided it would be perfect for this challenge. To create my little scene, I made an ink blended panel using a couple of distress inks (Seedless Preserves and Candied Apple) to create the razzleberry colour and cut a few Poppystamps Whittle Mounds from it. I then inked a blue square in the centre of my card base and arranged the mounds and seal.

To complete my take, I added a sentiment by Reverse Confetti.

AAA Cards One Corner challenge with create a scene twist

Hi there!

It’s time for another challenge at AAA Cards!  This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card using one corner of your card base only. Our optional twist for this challenge is ‘create a scene’!

I had fun with this one! As the challenge spans Valentine’s Day, I knew I wanted to include that in some way as well as creating a scene. Inspired by this cute Frantic Stampers kitties die, I used Funky Fossil Designs’ Dry Stonewall stencil for the kitties to sit on and then softly blended some distress ink to create the moonlit sky. To complete my card, I added a few die cut hearts and my favourite Reverse Confetti sentiment – which I use every February without fail!

My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined a previous challenge winner, Chrissie – who has some amazing CAS inspiration on her blog – you must check it out!!

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!

Butterfly Wreath Hello

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown! They have a super colour palette this week – blue, pink and green! The inspiration photo uses bright colours, but I chose a more pastel palette for my take.

I inked up the beautiful Reverse Confetti Butterfly Wreath and coloured it using my Twinkling H20 paints. I cut it out using the coordinating die and adhered a couple of die cut wreaths under my image to provide some depth. I added a few single butterflies from the set and a Mama Elephant die cut to complete my take.

If you enlarge the photos you can make out a very lightly stencilled background. I’m in the throes of organising my stencil mountain and I’m going to try to use more stencils in my designs. I chose a very subtle design here as I didn’t want to overpower that beautiful wreath!

Festive Wishes

Happy Friyay everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown! They have a beautiful colour palette again this week – cranberry, mint and cream!

I used my brand new Reverse Confetti background die together with trees from the Newton’s Nook Forest Scene Builder set.

The sentiment is from a Hunkydory/Moonstone sentiment set.

Day 17 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year.

The sponsor for Day 17 was Picket Fence Studios – the team came up with some amazing inspiration but as soon as I saw the tags created by Lisa, I knew they would be my inspiration!

I used the Snowflake Trio dies by Reverse Confetti and a sentiment by Hero Arts for my tag.

Thanks for stopping by!
