You're The Coolest

Good morning friends!  Today I'm sharing a clean and simple care I made for a fun challenge.


This cute penguin and beach ball are from the Penguins in Paradise stamp set.  I colored the images with copics and diecut them using the coordinating dienamics.  I used a black glaze pen on the penguin's eyes and added white highlights with a white gel pen.  I diecut a stitched rectangle and used Peacock Feather Distress Oxide Ink and a stencil to add some color on my card.  I stamped one of the sentiments from the set and then adhered the penguin and beach ball with foam tape.  It's a very clean and simple card but I'm happy with the way it turned out.

Copics:
Penguin - C7, C5, C3, C1, C0; R20, R00; YR07, YR04, YR02
Blue - BG57, BG53, BG01, B000
Orange - YR07, YR04, YR02, YR00
White - C1, C0, C00

I'm entering my card in the My Favorite Things Color Challenge 189.




Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Wednesday friends!  We're halfway through the week and the weekend will be here before we know it - yay!  Today I'm collaborating with Gaby, the owner of the My Enchanted Colors shop.

This beautiful digital set is called Sirenas and you can find it and other fabulous digital stamps in Gaby's Ko-fi shop here.  I used a stitched rectangle die to diecut a panel of bristol card.  I inked the panel with Tea Dye, Antique Linen, Chipped Sapphire, Prize Ribbon, Peacock Feathers, and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Inks.  I spattered the panel with water and gouche.  I printed the images on Neenah cardstock, colored them with copics, and fussy cut them.  I used a white gel pen to add highlights to the images and then adhered them to my card with foam tape.  The sentiment is from a stamp set by My Favorite Things.

Reverse Confetti - May Countdown To Confetti - Day Three

Good morning!  Today is Day 3 of the Countdown To Confetti!  All of the new products will be available in the Reverse Confetti store on Sunday, May 8th!  Today I'm sharing peeks of the new Love Wins and All You Need stamp sets.  Please note that for each purchase of the Love Wins stamp set a donation will be made to both the Human Rights Campaign and The Trevor Project.  

For my first card I used the Folklore Cover Plate Confetti Cuts to diecut the front cover of my card.  I sponged it with Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Inks and adhered it to my card base.  

I colored all the adorable images with copics and diecut them using the coordinating Love Wins Confetti Cuts.  I used a black glaze pen on the kitty and bear eyes and used applied Nuvo Crystal Glaze to their noses.  I used a clear glitter pen on the hearts to give them some sparkle.  I attached all the images with foam tape.  

For my next two cards I used the All You Need stamp set, along with some of the adorable critters from the Love Wins stamp set.  The All You Need stamp set is free with a $60 purchase - all you need to do is add it to your cart!

  

I used the Easter Panel Cover Plate Confetti Cuts to diecut the scalloped rectangle and I sponged it with Saltwater Taffy Distress Oxide Ink.  I stamped the large sentiment onto my card with black ink.  I colored the sweet little kitty and heart with copics, diecut them, and adhered them to my card with foam tape.  

I cut strips of red, white, and blue cardstock and stamped the large love sentiment onto each strip with black ink.  I adhered the strips of cardstock along the bottom of my card.

I colored the little bear and flag with copics and diecut him using the coordinating Confetti Cuts.  I used a black glaze pen on his eyes, added Nuvo Crystal Glaze to his nose and the heart on his shirt, and adhered him with foam tape.
