Reverse Confetti May Release Blog Hop

Hello friends and welcome to the Reverse Confetti May release blog hop! I've got two projects to share with you today using some fabulous new products! All of the new products are available for purchase now in the shop {link above}! Up first is a fun birthday/celebration card using this cute new balloon set! I love the two sentiments that are included; I chose to use the "let's celebrate you" sentiment for today, which could be used for many different occasions!

To begin this card, I stamped the outline images using black ink. I actually set them aside to dry overnight so that I wouldn't have any black smudges. If you don't have problems with your black ink, then go ahead and get started coloring! There's nothing worse than having a black smudge after you've done the majority of the coloring!

I chose warm tones for this celebratory card with pops of red to keep it bright! 

The background is die cut using the Stitched Burst Cover Panel and then I layered the peach striped paper from the Sweet Stripes 6 by 6 paper pad. From there I was able to use the large oval from the new Cover panel (not sure of the name) to anchor the balloons. I added two of the floral clusters and the heat embossed sentiment to finish it off!

My second card for today uses the new cup of Friendship set and is so cute! I was going for a Mary Engelbreit feel, which I love! I stamped the images (letting them dry overnight) and then colored them using alcohol markers. The cup got a bit of Nuvo Crystal Glaze over the top. I actually outlined the cup with the glaze and then took a dry paint brush to drag the glaze downward from the top and upward from the bottom to give it a fun texture. It's hard to see in the photos, but I really like how it turned out.

Remember the oval from the first card? This is the Cover Panel that cuts it so you can get some different uses from the one die. It creates the perfect cut-out for this cute cup of flowers!

The sentiment is stamped on the cute polka dot paper, which is from the Cue the Confetti 6 by 6 paper pad, and then I layered the black piece over the top. I do need to mention, however, that I added the white paint splatter before I added it to the  card.

I added a few sequins to finish it off! There is another really cute image included in this set that I can't wait to use! Head to the other designers' blogs to see how they've used these cute new products! Thanks for fluttering by!

Kelly, your cards are always so inspiring. These are beautiful and your Cup of Friendship card totally has the Mary E vibe...soooo fabulous.

What pretty cards Kelly. I love your bright colors and all the interest you’ve added, from the beautiful elements and layering to the placement. Thx for the tip on the glaze. I hope you don’t mind, yet another question. I recently made a sympathy card with some vellum but your vellum looks so much softer and transparent. Do you have a favorite brand? I so appreciate all the help you’ve given, I don’t know what I’d do without you. Here’s wishing you a Very Happy Mother’s Day, I hope you’re pampered! 😊❤️
