Confetti Camera - 3-2-1-Stamp a Royal!

I'm over on the Reverse Confetti blog today to kick off a brand-new Confetti Camera series. What is Confetti Camera? It's a weekly feature, where a Confetti Crew member creates an exclusive project based on a give theme. Our theme this round, called "3-2-1-Stamp," is to use 3 stamp sets, 2 stand-alone dies, and 1 pattern paper pad.

I hope you'll join me on the Reverse Confetti blog for my royal wedding-inspired take on this theme! 

And PS, I think I say this every time I see a close-up of my coloring -- it's time for glasses! I can't stay in the lines because I can't see them! 😆

3 Stamp Sets: Magical Day, Hanging Blooms, Bitty Banners
2 Confetti Cuts dies: Stitched Rays Cover Panel, Pierced Round Top Layers
1 Paper Pad: Fun Times

Papertrey Ink May Release - Corner Adorner + Glorious Globes

Welcome to Day 5 of Papertrey Ink's May Release countdown! Today's featured products are Betsy Veldman's Corner Adorner: May and Lizzie Jones's Glorious Globes: May

All of the new products will be available at 10 pm tomorrow, May 15 in the Papertrey Ink store.

I've been inspired by all the baby-themed products from this release, so I've combined the Corner Adorner: May bouquet and Glorious Globes: May with some of the sweet Pitter Patterns sentiments and tag diecuts shown earlier in the countdown.

I started with a pair of tags that I diecut with one of the Pitter Patterns tags, one in white card stock and the other from one of the Bitty Big: Limeade Ice patterned papers (also releasing this month). 

I did some ink blending in Harvest Gold and Melon Berry along the bottom of the white tag, then added a stamped and die-cut Corner Adorner: May image to the bottom. The flowers are inked in Harvest Gold, then sponged with Melon Berry ink. I used orange and white colored pencils to add some petal detail, then stamped the centers with Stormy Sea ink.

Next I added a stamped and die-cut Glorious Globes: May image and sentiment to the top right of the tag. The "welcome to the world" sentiment is part of the Glorious Globes: May set, and the "sweet baby" that I stamped onto the globe is from Pitter Patterns.

For some fun little details, I also stamped the darling "xoxo" and a scattering of little heart images from Pitter Patterns to the card base.

That pinked and stitched border around the card base was done with the new Noted: Pinked A2 Vertical die set, which is part of this May release. I kept the die in place while I did the ink blending, which allowed me to add some color without adding a layer.


Stamps: Corner Adorner: May, Glorious Globes: May, Pitter Patterns

Dies: Corner Adorner: May, Glorious Globes: Basics, Pitter Patterns

Ink: Aqua Mist, Limeade Ice, Stormy Sea, Harvest Gold, Melon Berry, Smokey Shadow

First is Lexi Daly's Hashtag Everything collection, which includes the Hashtag Everything stamp set, as well as two companion die sets: Hashtag Everything: Icons and Hashtag Everything: Text Bubbles (all sold separately).

Hashtag Everything is so fun! The set includes oodles and oodles of hashtag sentiments, as well as different eye, mouth, and face options that you can mix and match to make all sorts of emojis.

I thought it would be fun to make emoji balloons, so I gathered up three of them and placed them onto a Balloon Strings die-cut. In the background, I added some festive "confetti" texture with the Shape Shifters: Circle 2 dies. 

I stamped one of the many, many Hashtag Everything sentiments onto a Hashtag Everything: Text Bubbles die-cut and then "liked" the hashtag with a die-cut heart.

Reverse Confetti May Release Hop

Hi all! I'm so excited to see Reverse Confetti turn FIVE this month! What a milestone, and a huge congrats to my friend and RC owner Jen del Muro!

The fabulous 5th birthday release is now available in the Reverse Confetti store.

Join the Confetti Crew today for a blog hop to celebrate. The hop begins on the Reverse Confetti blog, and you should have arrived here from Melissa Phillips's blog.  and you'll head to Tricia Barber's blog next. (The full hop order is down below, too.)

My project today combines the MY TRIBE sentiment set and a tiny peek of PATTERN BLOCKS.
I started by watercoloring a background, then heat embossed a MY TRIBE sentiment in white.

I built a shaker over top the sentiment by stacking a bunch of frame diecuts from the SCALLOPED SQUARES Confetti Cuts set. I used one of the PATTERN BLOCKS images to stamp a pattern onto the top layer of the frame using SUNSHINE, FLAMINGO, and WINE inks.

MY TRIBE has the most amazing sentiments. I'm in LOVE!

That's it for me. Here's the full hop order -- enjoy!
