Reverse Confetti blog hop

Reverse Confetti store header

Hello June and Hello Reverse Confetti Fans! It’s the 8th of the month and that means it’s time for an creative Blog Hop from Reverse Confetti. Last month’s release was fantastic and today we are inspiring you with projects and cards using those stamps. We’ve also invited some extra friends that helped us launch the new company last month, to join in on the fun! Are you ready?

The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog, and you should have made it here from the talented Heather’s blog. It would be worth your while to start at the beginning of the hop, so you don’t miss a thing. We have tons of inspiration for you to see using Reverse Confetti’s first 4 amazing stamp sets!

PeacockPretties
Today I am using this oh, so pretty set, Peacock Pretties.
 
love with Reverse Confetti stamps by Kimberly Crawford
I just love the peacock feather in this set, with its darling little heart and all the possiblities! Aside from gold, which I managed to get on both these cards, watercolor is a new obsession. I am seeing it everywhere in the stationery world, and fashion, and home d├ęcor. With inks and some water, the ways you can create projects are endless!

love cu with Reverse Confetti stamps by Kimberly Crawford
Start by pushing Distress Inks into a craft mat. For this card I used Peeled Paint and Peacock Feathers (hahaha, but it worked perfect). Spritz with water. Push the stamp into the inks and water, just as if it was an ink pad. The stamp will look splotchy and very wet. Stamp it on a scrap piece of paper. Then stamp onto your watercolor paper, which is essential for this to work right. Repeat as often as necessary to finish the pattern.

Once it was dry, I applied Pink Paislee Luxe gold rub ons, tiny little hearts to go with the stamp image. The effect is gorgeous. I wish you could see the card in your hand!

The word love is a Jillibean soup sticker that was colored by pushing a gold ink pad on the top of it.

be you with Reverse Confetti by Kimberly Crawford
Having a craft mat still full of ink, I grabbed another sheet of watercolor paper and pressed it into the “mess,” repeatedly until the paper was covered. Because I am impatient, I used my heat tool to dry the ink faster. I flicked a bit more color onto the dry surface, adding those droplets.

The peacock was heat embossed, because I cannot help myself with the gold. :)

Hope you’ve enjoyed hopping with us today. Be sure and hop with us on the 8th of EVERY MONTH for more REVERSE CONFETTI inspiration! Now it’s time to hop on over to the fun and very fabulous Karolyn’s blog. If you get lost along the way, you can find the hop order and list of all the participating designers over on the Reverse Confetti blog. Celebrate the creative side of you!

thanks for stopping by!
