Reverse Confetti - January New Release Creative Blog Hop

Hi everyone! I'm thrilled to be joining the Reverse Confetti team today in celebrating the fun January release which is now available.

If you've been hopping along, you should have arrived from Lisa Henke's blog.
Your next stop on the hop will be Wanda Guess.  The complete hop list and all product images that I used on my cards today are included at the end of the post. 

I've got 3 cards to share with you today using some of the new stamps and dies - two that are very Valentine themed and one that could be used for any occasion.

First up are two Valentine's Day cards that feature the adorable characters from the Heart Pals stamp set.  I've colored all the images with Copics and die cut with the coordinating Heart Pals Confetti Cuts.  

For the "hey there, valentine" card, I decided to make a shaker card.  I started by ink smooshing some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink onto a Bristol Smooth card stock panel cut slightly smaller than A2 size.  I used the Patterned Heart Confetti Cuts to die cut two heart shaped openings.  I white heat embossed the tiny heart in a cascading pattern.  I created the shaker part and then tucked the bear and cat into the openings by adhering them right onto the acetate.  

For my second card, I wanted to make a slimline card which measures 8.5 x 3.5 inches.  I stamped a few of the Patterned Hearts with white pigment ink onto some kraft and berry red card stock.  I then die cut with the coordinating Patterned Hearts Confetti Cuts.  I lightly sponged on some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink onto the top and bottom edge of the card base.  I trimmed a white panel narrower than the card base and adhered with foam tape.  I added the hearts in row but left space for the bunny and bear.  Lastly, I tied some baker's twine around the bottom of the white panel.  

For my final card, I used the Happy Bee Day stamp set.  This is an A2 sized card with a front panel cut slightly smaller.  I blended on some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink, keeping it lighter towards the center of the panel to create a spotlight effect.  I colored the images with Copics and die cut with the coordinating Happy Bee Day Confetti Cuts

I wanted the honey jar to look as though it was sitting on a table cloth.  I used the smaller die in the Scalloped Squares Confetti Cuts to create the table cloth.  For a little extra detail, I hand drew the dashed lines for the bee trail and added a few sparkling clear sequins.
