Reverse Confetti Spring Fling Blog Hop with My Sweet Petunia

I’m so excited to be a part of the Reverse Confetti + My Sweet Petunia Spring Fling Blog Hop!

There will be two lucky commenters from the hop to win one of two prizes: a $60 shopping spree at and a $60 shopping spree at – you must leave your comment no later than Sunday, March 25th, at 11:59 PM Central time and winners will be announced on Tuesday March 27th, on the Reverse Confetti and My Sweet Petunia blogs.

I’m the start of the hop, so let’s get this party started!  Here’s a peek at my project I made especially today:

I’ve started a card basket that I’ll fill with cards to gift to my Momma for Mother’s Day! 

I know that I’m not the only one that has an Original MISTI + Mini MISTI.  I use them whenever I stamp and can’t imagine my life without them.

Let’s chat about my tag, it is the Dashed Line Tag, cut in Lime Green.  I layered the My Sunshine set + coordinating confetti cuts on it.  Reverse Confetti stamps hold and stamp ink wonderfully, but I always like to see things stamped out, I might decide that I want it darker which is a snap because when you use the MISTI all you need to do is just ink up the image again.  
I used Coral and Bellini inks on the sunrays.  The center has been stamped in Buttercup.  I generally like to ink up the edges of images where the sentiment is white space, it brings out the sentiment.

Here’s one of the two cards that I made to start off my Momma’s supply.  

The Large Diamond Cover Panel has been cut in Piggy Bank and Buttercup.  I made sure to say all the diamond bits.  I originally was going to design one card but figured since I had the ingredients for a second, why not.  I could have just layered a Buttercup panel behind the Piggy Bank Large Diamond Cover Panel but I had all the bits to add and love the one panel look.

I adore the Tall Blooms set!  The blooms have been stamped in Midnight ink and watercolored.  I was happy to see that the sentiment form the Honey Bear set seemed to be a perfect fit.

My last card basically uses the same design but different cardbase colors:
I decided to scoot things over to the right side of the card.  The sentiment is from the Tall Blooms set.

I generally eyeball things first using my Mini MISTI:
As you might have noticed, I scooted things down a bit to conserve paper.  I do save cardstock/pattern paper bits for all my design teams.

I just recovered the magnets with some fun washi tape (thanks Novell!).   That makes it a bit easier when they attach themselves together.  The bar magnets are definitely on my wish list.

My Springy color palette was inspired by:

Up next is the awesome Ilina Crouse!  In case you get lost along the way, here’s the entire hop listing:

I’m looking forward to hopping and soaking up all of the fabulous inspiration!

    Thanks for the opportunity to win such generous prizes.

  2. I love your negative/positive cards! I never think to use the "other" part to make a matching/opposite project! Super cute basket too!!

  9. Love the tag and cards! Such pretty spring colors and the backgrounds are perfect with this beautiful flower! Beautiful job!

  10. I’m not much into stamping-more of a scrapbook card maker but a misti really would come in handy for my sentiments-esp when I make 45+ Valentine cards for my church to include in their baskets for the elderly in Feb.

  11. Love the Tall Blooms stamp set. Your cards are so soft; feminine. Perfect for Mother's Day. Thanks for sharing!

  12. Nice! The good thing about inlaying instead of popping up is that you don't have to cut a zillion bitsy bits of foam tape….

  13. You have some great ideas. The card basket Gives me some new thoughts. The stamp set is lovely and you did a beautiful job on the card. I don't have the Misti but I do have a stamp positioning tool and it is very helpful.

  14. What a sweet and thoughtful gift for your mom. The cards you created are beautiful! I love the tall blooms also, and the colors you chose are perfect for Spring!

  18. I just love these cards! I really love the diamond background, I love how you took the time to put a different color in to give the background depth. I think I need to add some background dies to my stash. Lol

  19. What a thoughtful gift for Mother's Day! A darling little tag to start it off, and a beautiful card for her to send. I think I use my MISTI on every card, too!

  21. So interesting… Love the background… this is starting to be my fav thing to do is different backgrounds makes all the difference…

  22. Fantastic tag and card! I love the idea of making a card basket! I've been wanting to make cards for my mother-in-law for a gift, but I just never seem to get it done.

  23. Sweet cards, but I have to say I love the diamond cover panel one – I love getting two cards that are just a little bit different.

  24. This is such a fabulous Mother's Day gift idea, Amy! That basket is going to look SO pretty all filled with cards! Love the two you've started out with. Moms always love flowers, and these are gorgeous. Love that you made two cards in opposites to use up all those awesome cover plate die cuts!

  25. So so so so beautiful!! Love the way you used that cover die and the sweet colors in this! And those flowers! Love how intricuate the dies cut them out… just beautiful!

  26. I'm so glad to know that I'm not the only cardmaker who hasn't outgrown the "look Mommy, I made you something!" phase of life. And moms are always the best about it! You really can't ask for more. Thanks for sharing these beautiful cards with us.

  27. Darling projects, and your mama is sure to love this wonderful gift, amy! I just love those little strawberry baskets – filled with your cards? what a treat!

  28. I really loved the colors of the inks you used. The tag is so cute and the cards are beautiful. It is amazing to see how reversing the background color on the cards changes it so much. Loved your cards
