post 1 of 2 for today…click HERE for the Reverse Confetti – Countdown to Confetti – Day one!
Hello and Happy Friday! I’m back again and having fun with Impress! The feminine and masculine styles have been a fun challenge for me so I’ve decided to keep that my theme.
Let’s get started! I’m a big fan of shaker cards:
I stamped the Savvy Stamps Jar with Hearts image repeatedly on a watercolor paper panel. I used Ranger Archival black ink. I followed up with Zig Clean Color Markers in: Geranium Red + Light Carmine
I poured a bunch of flat gold heart confetti on top of the panel and covered it up with a piece of acetate and used my sewing machine, complete with gold thread, to stitch the panels together.
TIP: I free hand cut the acetate panel and then clean it up with large scissors when the panels have been sewn together.
I’m okay with sentiment free cards, how about you? I was going to fit a sentiment in between the random mason jars but decided it would take away from the design.
Here’s how I fit in a sentiment:
oh hello sentiment. I think we all tend to neglect the interior of our cards. I think it’ll be a nice surprise to the recipient when they open up this fun shaker card, how about you?
Next is my masculine version:
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for using pinks for male cards (sequins, glitter, you name it!) but this card came about by accident. I was thinking of using that awesome Savvy Stamps Woodgrain Heart on my first card but it wasn’t fitting into my design. I had already stamped and fussy cut it so I put it aside. It has been stamped with Fresh Ink Pool and the sentiment is Ranger Archival Black.
I remembered I have quite the stash of Impress note cards and…insta-card!
Let’s talk about Fresh Ink…they are awesome. I have a majority of colors (with coordinating reinkers) and love using them.
