CardMaker + Reverse Confetti Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone!

I am so excited to be participating in this fun hop with CardMaker Magazine and Reverse Confetti! I have been admiring this stamp company for awhile and they generously provided the entire CardMaker Blog Team with stamps of our choice specifically for this hop. I absolutely love the stamps I got and had a lot of fun creating my cards for today.

First up, I created this simple card using the fun new Falling Confetti Confetti Cut die. As soon as I saw this in their recent release, I knew I had to have it and I immediately knew I wanted to use the gorgeous Rainbow DecoFoil behind all those little cuts in the cardstock. I went with black just to make it pop more and I love how the white embossing looks on the dark cardstock with a sprinkling of Doodlebug Enamel Dots around it.  

My second card features the stamp set Dream In Color (also used for the sentiment in the card above.) There was no doubt in my mind I was getting this stamp set because I absolutely love color and coloring! As soon as I received it, water coloring a fun rainbow background was the first thing to pop in my mind. Then I did some embossing in black and white for the sentiment.

I originally wanted it to be completely uncolored on the top half of the word color but when I added some Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens to the word I accidentally brought some of the color into the top half so I just went with it and made it a bit messy. In the end, I love how it turned out.

Ok, so that's it for me, I hope you enjoyed my cards and now it's off to the next stop on the hop which is the lovely Sarah!
