Reverse Confetti: June Blog Hop

It’s the 8th of May which means the Reverse Confetti Blog Hop!  Today’s theme is:  Summer

You should have arrived here from Heather Hoffman’s awesome blog!  If not, you’ll want to start at the beginning of the fun which is the Reverse Confetti blog!

Here’s a peek at my projects:

I had so much fun picking out a couple of Summer Themed stamp sets:

Think Pink
Pineapple Aplenty

So do you see an overall trend with my card trio?

First up is the Mahalo card:

I used the Paper Bliss Paper Pad with all three cards.  Do you spy stencil work?  I used the Pointed Out stencil.   It might look a bit ombre’.  That was totally a happy accident, I tend to neglect cleaning up all the time.  There was residual ink on the stencil and then I added Sunshine ink on top of it.  I love the look.

TIP:  Card set production can be made easier if you work with the same paper collection and card sketch

Ink colors I used:

Rose  •  Lime Green  •  Sunshine  •  Dark Roast  • Midnight

Another recurring element I used was the Circles ‘n Scallops confetti cuts for all of the main images to nestle on.

Next up is Think Pink:

Aren’t you loving the Paper Bliss patterns?!  So filled with fun colors and designs.

I think those sweet flamingos in Think Pink are so sweet!  

Lots of foam dimensionals on this card.  I finished off the card with pops of black.

My final card features Pineapple Aplenty:

I was having a bunch of happy accidents.  I originally stamped out the Summer Lovin’ pineapple with Sunshine + Rose ink.  I didn’t like the look, cleaned it off and stamped it with Piggy Bank.  Well, in my haste, I didn’t clean off the stamp that well because the Rose still stamped out with the Piggy Bank giving it an ombre’ effect.  How lucky was I?

The ink duo I used:

Pistachio  •  Piggy Bank

My cards were inspired by Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch:

That’s it for me, next up is my teamie, Kathy Schweinfurth!

  1. Love how you used the patterned paper on all of the tropical themed cards. My favorite is the flamingos.

  2. Love all of these fun summer cards. The pattern paper is an awesome background and I love the pineapple. Great job!
