Happy Spring, friends and thanks for joining me for the Reverse Confetti Spring Fling Blog Hop as we team up with My Sweet Petunia....maker of the amazing MISTI tool! I will show you later on in my post how I used it for today's design! You can check out the Reverse Confetti Blog for more information as well! Make sure to hop along to all of the other designers blogs to see what they have come up with!  Also, before I begin... we will choose two lucky commenters from the hop to win one of two prizes: a $60 shopping spree at www.mysweetpetunia.com and a $60 shopping spree at www.Reverseconfetti.com- 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. Isn't that amazing????

The Fun Times 6 by 6 paper pad was the starting point for my card and paper badket and the Dashed Line Tag Confetti Cut was the starting point for my layout. I had been wanting to try arranging the tags like this during the release week, but didn't get the opportunity! To begin, I die cut the tags twice, once out of Premier Polar White cardstock and once out of each of the 4 patterns that I chose for this design. I glued them together for stability. I knew this card would have a lot of layers and I needed the tags to have the added weight that the cardstock gave them.

I used the Stitched Rays Cover Plate Confetti Cut to create a backdrop for the tags. I blended some Lilac Distress Ink Oxide around the edges for some contrast and dimension. Once that was done, I was able to arrange the tags using foam squares.

I used my MISTI to arrange all 4 of the Tall Blooms images onto the paper. Once they were arranged properly, I was able to stamp them all at once, which is such a time saver, and of course with precision.

The awesome thing about the MISTI is that I was able to get them double stamped for a crisp, saturated image with complete precision. I can't say enough about the genius of the MISTI. 

I also used it for perfect placement of the "a happy hello" sentiment onto my strip. It is often hard to stamp a cursive or loopy sentiment straight just by eyeballing it, so the MISTI helped me to only have to stamp it once. I used Versamark ink and then heat embossed it using Rose Gold embossing powder. I wanted to bring in some warmth, but still have the same tones as my card.

I used the coordinating Tall Blooms Confetti Cuts once they were all stamped and colored using Copic Markers. I adhered them onto the tags and then used my sharp trimmer to chop off the extra pieces. I added some gold Nuvo drops around the sentiment and a few drops of Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the leaves of the loopy green stem and the centers of the lavender flower.
I used the same techniques and supplies to create a coordinating paper basket. It's the perfect size to tuck in a treat or gift card.

I had so much fun on these projects!! Thanks for fluttering by!

' Happy Hello' makes me smile straight away. What a great card and matching gift, beautiful colours, patterns and such crisp clean detail on your stamped images, I've seen lots of amazing RC products on this hop and I've learnt why a Misti is so important to safe the rain forest I seem to have used trying to print clean, crisp and non shadowy, thank you x

Annalisa Young said...

Wow, great matching of the colors to the patterned paper. They're also the perfect spring-y colors for me. Thanks so much for sharing with us! I always wonder how to use tags in non-tag ways, especially when I end up with a set of them, and this is the perfect solution.
