Happy Friday everyone!!! It’s super sunny here and we’re looking at fabulous weather all weekend. I hope most of you can relate and get to enjoy it! Today I’m sharing a couple of adorable cards I made to stock my stash for occasions that I don’t need often but sometimes don’t have time to make a card for either. This adorable Reverse Confetti set called Bear Hugs is super versatile with the sentiments included but the images are also great for just about any other sentiment you might want to pair with it too!
I had so much fun, once again, getting super inky to create these great backgrounds and am absolutely in love with all the cover plate background dies that Reverse Confetti has to offer. Today I used the Wonky Stripes Panel and See Through Tag to help ground my images. I love them both! So many options!
For this first card, I blended cracked pistacchio and scattered straw distress oxide inks on a panel and the spritzed it with water. Then I flicked watered down ink from both colors over the panel too. Setting it aside to dry, I die cut the see through tag from white card stock, stamped and colored my images, and then used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment, then used a Trinity Stamps banner die to cut it out. Moving on to assembly, I added some black striped washi tape to the edge of a white card base. Then I trimmed the inked panel down to 4×5.5 inches and added foam tape to the back, adding it to the card base so the stripes showed on the right side. I used liquid glue to adhere the tag to the inked panel and popped my image up with foam squares. Last, I smeared a little liquid glue on the back of the vellum sentiment banner and adhered it to the tree trunk.
For finishing touches on this sweet card, I added glossy accents to the koala eyes and noses. I love that beautiful gender-neutral color palette for a baby card. Perfect for people not finding out what they are having or maybe a congratulations card for someone who just found out they are expecting.
Get well cards are often the ones I don’t have time to make just when I need one so it’s wonderful to have something I love to share ready to go.
For this card, I blending wilted violet and seedless preserves distress oxides on a panel and spritzed it with water. Then I flicked some watered down milled lavender on the panel for a little color contrast in the speckles. I set the panel aside to dry and die cut the Wonky Stripes Panel from kraft cardstock and added foam strips to the back of it.
I stamped and colored my image with copic markers, then used the coordinating dies to cut it out. I stamped a sentiment from the set and trimmed it into a strip. Now, we can assemble everything. I trimmed the inked panel down to 4×5.25 inches, added foam tape to the back and popped it on a white card base. I used liquid glue to added my image and sentiment to the wonky stripes panel and then put more foam squares behind them for added stability. I removed the release paper and put it in place next.
Moving on to finishing touches for this card, I added glossy accents to the koala’s eyes and nose again, plus the flower centers this time.
This set is just too cute and I’m so glad that I finally snagged it after eyeing it for so long.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
