Reverse Confetti & MISTI Hop





Welcome! If you are following this blog hop, you should have come from the talented Kelly Lunceford's blog here.  If you are new to my blog, I post easy-to-make cards and life stories. If you are not new, a thousand thanks for coming back!

I'm all Reverse Confetti lately, particularly since this post is part of a blog hop/collaboration between Reverse Confetti and MISTI and because Reverse Confetti keeps making stamps I love. 



I've made several cards using products from both companies, but I'm only posting 2 of them today. You can see the others here, here, here, and here

Prizes!

Two lucky commenters from the hop will win one of two prizes: a $60 shopping spree at My Sweet Petunia and a $60 shopping spree at Reverse Confetti. To be eligible, comment no later than Sunday, March 25, 11:59 pm central time. The winners will be announced on March 27th on the Reverse Confetti and My Sweet Petunia blogs.  (Hey, I just won a pretty big prize from a blogger, so go for it!) 

1. Stamping a Background



I'm terrible at putting together individual stamps to make a nice bouquet, so when I saw the gorgeous Banner in Bloom set I was all over it. 

Stamped a simple pattern with the cluster of flowers from Banner in Bloom** and colored with alcohol markers. And by "colored" I mean I stayed in the lines. (The beauty of small images is that that is pretty much all you have to do.) Using the MISTI meant that I could carefully place the image exactly where I wanted it and could restamp if the image didn't come out clean the first time.

When I was finished with the card, I sat back and said "I need more Reverse Confetti stamps," and promptly placed an order for the Tall Blooms stamp and die set** I used in the next card.

2. B&W With a Pop of Color



Painted watered down Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide ink onto a white linen card, using as little water as possible. 

Stamped the sentiment from Tall Blooms. Die cut and stamped this pretty sprig from that set using the MISTI. I die cut a few more and glued 4 dies cuts together, tied some twine around them, and adhered to the card. Fast, simple, easy to mail. 

Blog Hop

Cannot wait to see what this talented group has made.

Joan Bardee -->  me
Lydia Fiedler --> thank you for inviting me to the hop!

**Disclosure Reverse Confetti sent me the Banner in Bloom stamp and coordinating dies. I purchased at full price the Tall Blooms stamp and coordinating dies.

MOOD WHEN DONE: I stamped; therefore I am happy!!

And I love your use of the smaller flowers and leaves, because those really say spring to me. Thanks so much for sharing these lovely cards with us! (Also, I think we need to Latinize your mood: stampo ergo felicium or something.)
