Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - May 1 - Flowers for Mom


Hey Stampin' friends! Welcome to the NEW Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Charming! This month's challenge totally inspired me to make a Mother's Day card with my Reverse Confetti Flowers for Mom Confetti Cuts. This inspirational photo is SO charming and I hope you have a chance to get crafty and join us!

The Lead of this challenge will be invited to to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge! 

I took inspiration from the photo for the colour palette and used MFT Heavyweight Cardstock in Grape Jelly, Grapesicle, Cotton Candy and Smooth White.



I know I'm too late to enter the Reverse Confetti SKFYT #35 but I just loved this fun sketch and it was perfect for my Flowers for Mom, Mother's day card, so I used it anyways.

The colours and patterns in the inspirational photo made me reach for one of my all time favourite BasicGrey 6X6 paper pads - Soleil. I layered the Circles 'N Scallops and Flowers for Mom Confetti Cuts to build my circle panel and cut the "mom" die from the Flowers for Mom Confetti cuts four times and adhered them together to create a little more dimension and stability.  I adhered it to the fishtail banner from the Flowers for Mom Confetti Cuts and added the flower from the Flowers fro Mom Confetti Cuts. I embellished with some purple AC hemp twine and a sprinkling of Grape YNS Gumdrops

I finished off the inside of my card too....I stamped the sentiment from the Reverse Confetti Rose Garden Stamp Set on the Thanks Tag Confetti Cuts and I added a tab and a few little flowers from the Hang Ups Confetti Cuts.

Thanks SO much for stopping by and havin' a wee peek at my Reverse Confetti Flowers for Mom card for the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Charming!

Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - April 1 - Enjoy Today - Happy Birthday!



Hello stampin' friends! Welcome to the NEW Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Neon Nicknacks. Yet another FUN challenge...I was totally inspired by the photo and reached for my Reverse Confetti Pineapples Aplenty Stamp set and Pineapples Aplenty Confetti Cuts.

The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!


I took inspiration from the photo for my colour palette too and used MFT Heavyweight Cardstock in Black Licorice and Sour Apple. I also used MFT Premium Dye Ink Lemon Drop, Razzle Berry, Sour Apple and Gumdrop Green.

I've been on a bit of a "watercolouring" kick as of late and I wanted to make my own watercoloured paper with my MFT Fishnet Stencil inspired by THIS tutorial post/video by Barbara Anders on her fabulous blog Paper Pursuits and the green pineapple nicknack in the inspiration photo. I decided to use my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers instead of an inkpad and waterbrush. I used the the Pink, Light Green and Lemon Yellow markers and water to watercolour in each section of the stencil on Ranger Watercolour paper. I then cut the sheet down with the stitched rectangle die in Blueprints 13. I added a few splatters with Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Black Velvet.

I stamped and cut out several pineapples with the Reverse Confetti Pineapples Aplenty Stamp set and cut them out with the coordinating Pineapples Aplenty Confetti Cuts. I also used the NEW Reverse Confetti Swirlies Confetti Cuts. I stamped and embossed the sentiment in AC Zing White embossing powder from the With Love Sentiment Stamp set on Black Licorice Heavyweight Cardstock cut with the wavy banner from the NEW Flowers For Mom Confetti Cuts

I finished off the inside of the card while I was at it and and another watercoloured stencil strip of paper and added a white embossed sentiment stamped from the With Love Sentiments Stamp set. I embellished with another Razzle Berry pineapple.

Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - March 15 - Rainbow...Lucky Me...


Hello stampin' friends! Welcome to the NEW challenge over at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Rainbow!  I knew when I saw the NEW CCIC challenge was Rainbow I had to use my Reverse Confetti Weather it Together Stamp set and coordinating Weather it Together Confetti Cuts. I thought I would do some watercolouring too; inspired by the pretty vases of coloured water in the inspiration photo.



I needed some inspiration for the card design and found this great sketch over at Sunday Stamps...perfect for my rainbow card!

I used a technique that I've coined "Reverse Watercolour".  I made several swatches of watercoloured paper by laying down a watercolour wash with my Peerless Watercolours. I set the sheets aside and allowed them to dry. When dry, I strategically die-cut various shapes from the water coloured paper and stamp over the watercolouring. I cut the circles from various watercoloured swatches of paper with the Reverse Confetti Circles 'N Scallops Confetti Cuts. I stamped the sentiment from the Reverse Confetti A Friend Like You Stamp set  on the large yellow circle. I cut the clouds and sun from the watercoloured swatches and then stamped with the coordinating stamps from Weather it Together Stamp set.  I added a smattering of Your Next Stamp Gumdrops in various rainbow colours. Finally, I used Heidi Swapp Black Velvet Color Shine spray mixed with a little water and spattered the card and added an AC Hemp cord bow to the sun.

Thanks So much for stopping by and havin' a wee peek at my Reverse Confetti rainbow card for the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Rainbow.
