Let Your Light Shine--Sealiously!

Well, hello, hello!  I had a little time to play recently and came up with this "sealiously cute" card! Take a look...

I've been trying to take more time to dabble in my bible journaling lately and had this set, MY ROCK from REVERSE CONFETTI out on my desk, when the cute seal from the SEALIOUSLY set just jumped out to be combined and used along with it!  After I colored her with my Copics, I die cut her from the SEALIOUSLY Confetti Cuts along with the little drops.  (I know, I'm probably the only person that calls my card pieces him or her.)

All the patterned papers for my background pieces came from the FUN TIMES 6x6 paper pad.  I added the additional Navy and Iced Aqua Cardstock as perfect coordinating colors for my card. The navy really makes her and her polkadotted umbrella pop!

Anyway, this card is for my daughter, Audrie to give her a little boost of confidence as she auditions for high school show choir for next year.  She's hoping to make it into Voices of Central like Lindsie (this will be her 4th year), but will be so excited if she at least makes the prep show choir, Voltage.  Please keep her in your prayers this Saturday when she auditions.

April Sketch for You to Try from Reverse Confetti

Well, today it's my turn to share my latest card for the APRIL SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY from REVERSE CONFETTI.

I thought this sketch was pretty interesting as I am not usually drawn to angled lines.  Reminds me of the 80's or something!  LOL.  However, as I was looking through my supplies, I decided it would work well for this modern Bohemian look I achieved.

I started by grabbing my BOHO VIBES stamps and BOHO VIBES Confetti Cuts.  I stamped the feathers and colored them with my watercolor pencils (of course!).  I decided on papers, the black pattern came from the EVERY LITTLE BIT 6x6 pad.  I stamped the sentiment and added it to the square cut from the SCALLOPED SQUARES Confetti Cuts.  Once I put it all together, I felt it needed a bit more, so I stamped, colored and cut a couple of roses, leaves and petals from the BUILD A BUNCH stamps and dies to complete the embellishment cluster.  I added some sparkly Wink of Stella for some shine!  Adventure does truly await!!!! 

Here's a look at what I used today. Y'all be sure and head on over to the Reverse Confetti Blog to see what the other gals have created for today, and all the details on how to play along for a chance to win a Reverse Confetti Gift Certificate! Why don't you play along!?!?!

Moms, Dads and Grads April Blog Hop from Reverse Confetti

Well, it's the 8th of the month and that means it's time for a little inspiration with our monthly blog hop from REVERSE CONFETTI! This month, we are celebrating Moms, Dads and Grads! 

I'm a little early, but I made a sweet card and Gift Card Holder for Eric to give him for Father's Day!

I started my little project by grabbing my HONEY BEAR stamp set and coordinating HONEY BEAR Confetti Cuts dies and went to town stamping, coloring and cutting out what I thought I'd need.  I created my card base with papers from the CHEERFUL & KIND and WARM HEART 6x6 paper pads.  I added the PIERCED ROUND TOP LAYER Confetti Cuts and then stamped the sentiment from the TIE-RIFIC stamp set.

I created the GIFT CARD HOLDER TAG using the same papers, stamps and dies, and combined sentiments from both stamp sets to follow the masculine theme. 

I put the Dick's Sporting Goods gift card in there because it was all I had, but I think an Applebee's card would be perfect!  We haven't been there in a while!

That's about all from me today, but there's a couple more stops to make on the hop todayI'm the last stop on the hop today.  Here's the master hop list in case y'all want to go back and look again at the fabulous creations today!

Embossed and Foiled Sympathy Card

Well, eventually we all need to send out one of these--a sympathy card.  As much as I don't like to make them, I had a request for one, so this is what I came up with using a foiling technique and heat embossing.

I got out my ROSE GARDEN and SENTIMENT ESSENTIALS stamp sets.  I stamped several roses and leaves in Versamark in one corner of my card front and heat set it with black embossing powder. So very gorgeous!

Next came the sentiment.  I wanted to try out a foiling technique I had watched a video on to learn how to do and it worked!  I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and heat set it in clear embossing powder.  I placed the foil over this and put in inside a folded piece of copy paper.  I then ran it through my cheapo depot laminator (picked up at Aldi for $15!), and it made the foil stick to the embossing!  Really shiny! 

All I had left to do was to cut the sentiment using my SENTIMENT ESSENTIALS Confetti Cuts and pop it up onto my card front which I used pop dots on the entire piece to adhere to my card base also in black.  A very "quiet" card, but could easily be switched out with different colors and sentiments for any occasion.

Reverse Confetti Spring Fling Blog Hop

Well, hey 'Fetti Fans!  We have a very special Blog Hop happening today--REVERSE CONFETTI and MY SWEET PETUNIA, the makers of the original MISTI (Most Incredible Stamp Tool Invented) have teamed up to bring you some fresh inspiration with a Spring Fling Theme!  There are prizes to win, so be sure and read to the end for all those details.

The hop started over on my friend, AMY TSURUTA'S blog, and you should have made it here from JEANNE STREIFF'S blog.  If that's not the case, I have a full link list below, so you can hop on or go back and see what you missed!  You don't want to miss anything, you know!

For my project, I created a little 4x4 chunky canvas to display in my tiered stand that I change out for different holidays and seasons.  I painted it with some Country Chic Chalk paints to create a faux wood plank look in the color Bliss and a few others.  Once my canvas was painted, I made my watering can from REVERSE CONFETTI'S ROUND TOP TAG Confetti Cuts.  The spout was drawn by hand, cut out and attached, and the side handle was just a repeat of the top of the tag. 

The MINI MISTI is the perfect tool to center my sentiment from the LOVE BLOOMS stamp set.  I love the doodle lines and inked edges I did on the can for extra details!  Next came the most fun part--making all the flowers!  I used the BLOOMS 'N BUDS Confetti Cuts and several colors of felt for this.  I also cut a small Dollar Tree foam Easter egg in half for more embellishments (did y'all know it's so easy to do that?!). 

I figured out ways to crease almost all the flowers and leaves to make them dimensional.  The roses are the largest flower, cut into spirals, rolled and hot glued to a smaller flower of a different color.  The added half peals and gems make them look so sweet!  Then I just arranged them and hot glued everything down, including the burlap ribbon and top ribbons and embellishments.  I absolutely LOVE how it turned out and already have a request to make one for a dear friend of mine. 

I hope you are enjoying this truly inspiring hop!  I can't wait to see all the projects myself!  Your next stop on the hop is the MY SWEET PETUNIA blog!  Before you go, you should leave a comment to be added to the prize drawings!

We will choose two lucky commenters from the hop to win one of two prizes: a $60 shopping spree at and a $60 shopping spree at you must leave your comments no later than Sunday, March 25th, at 11:59 PM Central time and winners will be announced on Tuesday March 27th, on the Reverse Confetti and My Sweet Petunia blogs.
