Reverse Confetti May Release Blog Hop

Hello and welcome, friends! Today is the Reverse Confetti 9th Birthday release blog hop! I'm sharing two projects with you for the hop using some of the cutest new products in honor of the celebration!

My boys' school is celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week later than the nationally scheduled time, but that doesn't mean I haven't already been working hard on getting gifts and things put together for them! I found the cutest bundle of lotions and potions at Bath and Body Works featuring butterflies and purple and blue tones with the sentiment "I appreciate you everyday". I knew it would be the perfect gift to send for the teachers!

I created a trio of tags using the new A Beautiful Day stamp/die set to coordinate with the gifts! Since I was using 3 each of every butterfly image in the set, I decided to use the emboss/resist technique for a soft look, and to make great use of my time! I chose to use the same colors that the box featured, of course!

I used the new tag die collection to create the layered tag. The base layer is cut using the largest die and then the next layer is die cut using the second tag die included in the set. I die cut this layer from watercolor paper and then spritzed it with Salvaged Patina Distress Spray for some added detail. The sentiment, which is an older set, coordinated so nicely with the bold font on the box. I couldn't resist using it for these tags, but the included sentiments are very lovely, too! My choice was purely based on coordination! ha ha! I heat embossed the "you are totally awesome sentiment, which is from the Best Sentiments stamp set, onto strips of vellum. I secured them to the back in a very tidy manner opting for a thin piece of ScorTape. I also added a few gems here and there for added detail and shine.

My second project for today uses the new Wildflowers stamp/die set! I know I say it every new release blog hop, but I rarely do any coloring these days, so it's always fun to get my markers out to color!

I'm especially loving this cute sentiment, which is one of three included in the Wildflowers set. I heat embossed it in white for a bold contrast! The background was cut using the same cardstock and the Stitched Scallops Cover Panel to give the background some subtle detail.

I die cut the flower panel using the Wildflowers die set and then layered it onto a piece of Darling Dots paper. I added a few sparkling clear sequins for some sparkle and shine! Thanks for fluttering by!
Don't forget to hop along to the other designers' blogs to see what magic they've created!
