Hello Crafters and welcome back to day three of the Reverse Confetti Countdown to Confetti! The release will be going live tomorrow, woohoooo! Please note that new product links will not be active until then. To celebrate the countdown, we are having a blog hop, with a gift certificate up for grabs! Details below! For today’s projects, we are featuring the Oceans of Love and Hummingbirds sets! So, let’s jump right in to the projects!
For my first project, Oceans of Love, I began by grabbing the new Circle of Waves Confetti Cuts and cutting five different colors of blue cardstocks. Most of the blue cardstock is from Concord and 9th, and one is from Simon Says Stamp. I traced the circular die and fussy cut a solid circle and glued the “waves” to that.
I used the Oceans of Love set to stamp some of the elements using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink on Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock, and heat embossed them using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. Before cutting those out using the coordinating die, I used Copic Markers BG70, BG72 and BG75 to color the images. I took the “waves” circle and stamped the sentiment on it using VersaMark Ink and heat embossed that using SSS Detail White Embossing Powder.
I cut a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb using the Reverse Confetti Stitched Circles Cover Panel Confetti Cuts and poked out all of the larger circles and a few of the smaller circles. I used a scrap of the blue cardstock to run that through using that same cover panel, because I wanted these to be the “bubbles” on the card. I adhered the Stitched Circles panel to my card base, which is also Neenah 110lb using liquid glue.
Then, I inlaid some of the blue “bubbles” for interest. I adhered the circular waves panel using foam tape and adhered the colored underwater elements using glue, adding some of the “bubbles” atop that as well. That finishes up this project!
For my second project, I’m featuring the Hummingbird set along with the new Circle Element! To begin this project, I stamped the Hummingbird set using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink on Neenah 110lb and heat embossed those using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. I colored the images using Copic Markers Y08, Y11, Y13, Y15, RV10, RV11, RV13, RV32, RV34, RV66, YG11, YG13, N4, N6, G00, G20, BG70 and BG72.
Once those were all colored, I used the coordinating die to cut them out. I used the Circle Element Cover Panel to cut a piece of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb, and I used another panel to cut a frame using the Stitched Note and Frames Confetti Cuts. I used PinkFresh Studio Sunshine ink to do some light ink blending on the panel and the frame.
I stamped the sentiment from the Hummingbird set using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and heat embossed it using the same clear embossing powder. I trimmed that down and placed it behind the frame, and then added foam tape to the frame for dimension. I then adhered the frame to the Circle Element panel. I wanted a little added interest behind that Circle Element panel, so I cut piece of Concord and 9th Sea Glass cardstock and adhered that behind.
I then began adhering the Hummingbird elements to my framed panel using a combination of glue and foam tape. My panel was then adhered to my card base, which is also Neenah 110lb. To finish up this project, I added some PinkFresh Studio Jewels, because every project needs some bling in my opinion!
That does it for day three of the Countdown! I hope you enjoyed these projects, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Please note that the new product links will not be active until the release day and time.
