Welcome to the Reverse Confetti February Release!  We are celebrating with .....4 new stamp sets, 7 Confetti Cuts, and new Quick Card Panels this month!  Wahoo!  Make sure to check out the Reverse Confetti blog for a list full of inspiration and more projects! 


Oh this release is just FABULOUS!  I am sharing a card made using the new Flower Wrap Confetti Cuts.  My flower wrap was diecut from Kraft cardstock and folded adding some Pink Sorbet twine to attach my tiny tag.  I also cut a smaller scrap of white cardstock from the Flower Wrap and trimmed it down to add as "tissue paper" inside the flower wrap.  For the flowers, I diecut them using the dies included and colored/shaded with Copics.  My flower wrap was layered onto a diecut Gift Card Holder Tag with a diecut center using the new Hoppin' Dots QCP.  To finish this off, I added a stamped sentiment from A Friend Like You onto the tag from In the Bag.  I just love the BOLD black sentiment!

Watercolor with Pearlescents

Mardi Gras


Hello!  Sharing a FUN card using the Mardi Gras stamps and dies from Avery Elle!  This set just screamed for me to use a watercolor medium that I have had FOREVER called Watercolor Palette: Stargazers.  This medium is just fantastic and shimmery!  Perfect to celebrate a Mardi Gras birthday.  
Avery Elle


I began by black heat embossing all my images onto Tim Holtz Watercolor Paper and using the coordinating dies to cut.  Once done, I used a brush from the Ranger Artist Brushes to drop color into my images.  The best thing about it being embossed is that the embossing keeps your watercolor "in place" until dry.  My background was done by sponging Wilted Violet and Lucky Clover Distres Inks.  As a last detail, shimmer spray was added over my sponged background.  The picture below captures the shine and shimmer perfectly!!!

Love Birds


Love Birds by Amy Kolling

Hello!  Happy Monday!  I'm sharing a card using some cute stamps from Taylored Expressions.  I love a white card with some color!

tayloredexpressions

I've used a set called Love is an Adventure.  This set just makes me happy!  I love these little birds so to make them the focal point I've watercolored a small sky and grass area in a diecut circle area and mounted my Love Birds over this with foam adhesive.  To frame my card, I've used the awesome Frame to Frame Cutting Plate.  I love the little scoring detail!

Lil' Inker Designs December Release: Day 3


Amy--Sunshine Sentiments2

Welcome to Day 3 of the Lil' Inker Designs January Release!  This release is FULL of dies and stamps that are so perfect for VALENTINES.......What did you think of yesterday's inspiration?  AMAZING, right?

  You should have arrived from my friend Jennifer Carter's blog.   But guess what??  The whole new release is now available and can be found HERE!!!



I must admit that I had a totally different card to share using these new Sunshine Sentiments until I saw this week's CAS(E) this Sketch!  I knew the new Silly Stitched Dies (circles) would be PERFECT for what I had in mind!  I used the smallest Silly Stitched circle to create my "clouds".  Within these circles, I sponged Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  I stamped my sentiment from Sunshine Sentiments in Versafine Onyx Black ink using my Misti tool.  I used the Large Sun Die several times and layered my sun and adding the top layer with foam adhesive.  A heart from the Mom Word Die was added to the center of the sun which was totally inspired by Kay MIller.  A little last detail was with some Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

*****************************

My second card uses the adorable Lovie Friends stamps and dies.  I colored, diecut, and layered my raccoon over a diecut from Anytime Tag Die Set that was made using the new Love You Papers.  Using a Heidi Swapp stencil, I sponged some hearts over my notecard using some gray pigment ink.  For some dimension, I white heat embossed the sentiments from Lovie Friends onto dark gray cardstock and trimmed into small sentiment strips.  These were added with foam adhesive.

Lil' Inker Designs December Release: Day 2


Amy--Love you2 

Welcome to Day 2 of the Lil' Inker Designs January Release!  This release is FULL of amazing dies and stamps that are so perfect for VALENTINES.......What did you think of yesterday's inspiration?

  You should have arrived from Maureen Merritt's blog.   But guess what??  The whole new release is now available and can be found HERE!!!


This first card uses the new FABULOUS paper collection called Love You.  I chose to work with this design so my Love You Greeting Die really "pops" from my card.  The greeting die was cut a second time out of silver glitter paper and mounted over the red layer.  

Amy--Love you

So that there would be stitching around the greeting die, I used one of the Stitched Mats: Squares.  I worked it out so this die became a shaker card!  I filled it with various flat confetti from Martha Stewart.  Did you notice the stitching on the pattern paper?  It's the new Silly Stitched Dies!  These are amazing!  A few Stitched Hearts Dies were added as an embellishment to tie in the silver glitter.

*************************************

Now, to change gears a bit but still using more of this Valentine release.  I've used 2 of the adorable images from Lovie Friends to make this baby girl card!  My images were colored in with Copics and some Wink of Stella for shimmer on the hearts.  My images were layered onto a circle from Stitched Mats: Circles.  That sentiment?  It's from the updated Pinwheel Sentiments Stamps.

Amy--Lovie Friends

I had to use more of the Silly Stitched Dies for both layers of this card!  I think all the stitching goes so well with a baby card, don't you think?  A twine bow and some sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh were added to finish!

Amy--Lovie Friends2

Here are all the products I used and linked to for my cards!








Now for the fun part!  There is a $15 gift certificate up for grabs for one lucky person who comments along the way!  One winner is chosen for each day!!
