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!

  3. I can see why someone would request one of these:
    it is just stunning & beautiful! It would also make
    an awesome doorstop if it was made with a heavier
    object, like one of those glass squares you see. :-)
