March Countdown to Confetti - Day #2 | Reverse Confetti Sneak Peeks

Hello crafty friends!! Welcome to Day #2 of Countdown to Confetti!!! Reverse Confetti's new release is on March 8th and we are counting down three days of sneak peeks and reveals. Make sure to scroll to the bottom and check out the links to blogs for the rest of the 'Fetti Fam -- and comment on each post to be entered for a chance to win a gift certificate!


Today's sneak peek is the lovely Friendly Florals stamp and matching Confetti Cuts die set. I'm sharing two cards -- one that shows how you can use the florals stamped, and another on how you can use them with the Confetti Cuts matching die set.


The first card I'm sharing is great if you're like me and don't always have the patience..or time to color in images.







I heat embossed all three flower images with white embossing powder onto white cardstock. Then I ink blended with my oxides across the entire page, let it dry, and rubbed excess ink off the embossed images. This is called an ink resist technique.

I probably would have wanted to emboss the sentiment at the beginning -- but I forgot! So I ended up heat emobssing 'Thank you for being a friend' after I ink blended and it worked just fine.

You're getting a sneak peek of the stitched, wavy frame die that I used from a set coming out in the new release. I used this to cut the inked background and then I adhered both the frame and the negative piece to a card front. I gave the frame more dimension by using foam tape to adhere it.




I finshed off the card with some clear droplets! What I love about clear droplets on inked backgrounds is the color shows through to the top and I think it looks so cool and beautiful.

For card #2 I decided to heat emboss each floral a few times with Ranger Vintage Pearl embossing powder. This gave them a beatufiul shine and pearlescent look.

I then cut out each design which was super easy using the matching Confetti Cuts.

I took a 6x6 folded gate card (I purcahse mine pre-cut, but you can make your own also!) and arranged all the florals on the front overlapping each other. Once I had them arranged as I liked I adhered the florals on the far edges with foam tape and then glued the rest of the flowers down, working my way towards the middle with regular glue.

At this point I realized I wanted some color to each flower, but I wanted to keep it soft. I added a simple layer of color using my Tim Holtz distress markers and a little bit of water from a water brush.


This helped give the flowers more of a watercolor look than a full on color explosion.

Too add a little more detail I added gems to the center of some of the flowers.

My final touch was to stamp 'Easter Blessings' on the inside of the card using a sentiment in the Springtime Sentiments stamp set that is a part of the new release.

Thank you for stopping by for day #2 of the Reverse Confetti sneak peeks! Head on back to my blog tomorrow to check out the next Countdown to Confetti post.
