Reverse Confetti April Blog Hop

Welcome to the Reverse Confetti April Blog Hop!


We have tons of inspiration for you to see using Reverse Confetti products!
For the hop, I decided to make not one, but three cards, 
which were inspired by Inspired By All the Little Things #51:


Isn't it adorable?
I immediately thought of using the little chick from Carton CutiesCarton Cuties
and making a nest using 

Here's my first card, an Easter card:


I blended ink onto my background and then added 
my stamped chickies from Carton Cuties
into the nest that I created by diecutting two 
of the larger Swirlies Confetti Cuts.


I coloured the chicks in with my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers
and a water brush and stamped my sentiment using Easter Blessings.

Then, I decided to make a baby card:


For this one, I blended aqua mist ink onto my background using my Heart Stencil
and added a branch using The Tweet Life Confetti Cuts.


I stamped my sentiment using Bear Hugs.

And lastly, I made a friends card:


I diecut my background using my Big Stripes Cover Panel Confetti Cuts
and blended ink onto it.


I heat embossed my sentiment (from A Friend Like You)
on a piece of vellum.

What a brilliant use of the Swirlies Confetti Cuts! I've seen that shape before but never used as a nest. It works perfectly! Love your little chick cards. Love the way you coloured the Popsicle shape. Really fun!
