Today Is Going To Be A Great Day - CardMaker Blog Hop


The Reverse Confetti design team is joining CardMaker Magazine today for a blog hop! Hope you'll hop along with us for lots of card-making inspiration! 

As part of the hop, there is also a giveaway over on the Reverse confetti blog.

If you're already following the hop, you will have arrived here from Kim Klinkovsky. If not, head over to the CardMaker Blog to get started. (The full hop list is posted there, too.) When you're finished here, Lisa Henke will be your next stop (I'll link to her again at the bottom of this post).

Today also happens to be my day to play along with this month's Sketch For You To Try, which looks like this:


You have until May 29 at noon CST to link up your entry. A $20 gift certificate goes to this months 'Fetti Fave -- will it be you? Challenge details and link-up are posted HERE.



For my card, I started with some stamped and die-cut roses and leaves from Rose Garden. The roses I used are solid images, so to add depth, I shaded the petals using Copic markers. The leaves are line art images. I heat embossed in white, then added color using sponge daubers. I arranged the flowers on a charcoal gray Thanks Tag.

The sentiment, from Posted Note Sentiments, is stamped onto a notched banner flag and popped up over the flower cluster.


For the two-piece vertical strip, I went with white-on-white Double Panel Circles Confetti Cuts strips. Last, I embellished with some white satin sequins and some white linen thread.





Ink: Papertrey Pure Poppy, Green Parakeet, New Leaf; Versafine Onyx Black; Versamark

Paper: Papertrey Stamper's Select White, Fresh Snow linen, Classic Kraft, and Smokey Shadow card stock; vellum

Other: white satin sequins, white linen thread, white embossing powder, Copic markers, sponge daubers, foam tape, scoring tool

 

  



Thanks so much for visiting! Your next stop is Lisa Henke. Enjoy the hop!
