CAS(E) This Sketch #227

Today, I have a card to share that I made for
 CAS(E) This Sketch #227 designed by N@Ali:



Here's my card, which I made using Reverse Confetti products.


I started by using the Leaf Lattice Stencil to blend Reverse Confetti inks onto my background.
I diecut one of the All Framed Up Confetti Cuts to frame my stencilling.


I diecut my butterfly using Butterfly Dreams Confetti Cuts and stamped it
with the coordinating Butterfly Dreams stamp, 
which I inked up with two colours.
A trio of enamel dots finishes it off.

Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge Sorbet -- Take Two & MFT Camp Create

I have another card to share that I made using the current

www.flickr.com

I also wanted to play along with MFT's Camp Create:

.



Here's my card, using Beautiful Butterflies:


I smooshed ink mixed with water onto my watercolour panel.
I stamped the butterfly onto its coordinating diecut, spritzing the stamp
with water after I inked it, before stamping it.


I stamped the sentiment (from MFT Forest Friends) onto my background.

Remember, there's still time to play along with this
 Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.

And, while I had my Beautiful Butterflies stamp set out,
I decided to make another card, this time for Day 2: Remarkable Resist.


Here's my card:


I started by pressing versamark ink through my MFT stencil onto my white cardstock.
Then, I heat embossed it with white embossing powder and used three different
colours of ink to create an ombre effect.


I stamped the butterfly onto its coordinating diecut and added the sentiment,
heat embossed in white on a strip of grey cardstock.

Inspired By All the Little Things #61

Today, I have a card to share for 
Inspired By All the Little Things #61:


I don't often use this shade of blue on my cards, so this photo was a real challenge for me.


I decided to use my Altenew Beautiful Day stamps, which I stamped onto my
watercolour paper background, with a little masking.
I coloured them in with my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers & a water brush.


I stamped my sentiment (from PTI's KIS: Sympathy) in Altenew Jet Black ink
and added a black border along the side.

Reverse Confetti June Blog Hop

Welcome to the Reverse Confetti June Blog Hop!


We have tons of inspiration for you to see using Reverse Confetti products!

For the hop, I decided use this sketch 
to make five cards using Rose Garden.



One of my close friends moved away to B.C. last month,
Before she left, she wanted me to make 10 sympathy cards for her,
so I challenged myself to make some using this sketch.



For my first card, I decided to stamp my own background using Rose Garden
I cut my panel apart and layered them over a piece of Stone Cardstock.


I heat embossed the sentiment from Rose Garden in white onto a piece of Midnight Cardstock
that I had diecut using the Shakers 'n Frames Confetti Cuts.


For my next card, I created my panel by blending Sand Ink onto Cloud White Cardstock
using the new Leaf Lattice Stencil.
I stamped the sentiment onto a diecut I made using Round Top Tag Confetti Cuts.


I added some twine, a button and a couple of Rose Garden leaves stamped in Sand Ink


On this card, I created my panels by stamping a leaf from Rose Garden
onto Stone Cardstock and heat embossing them in white.


I heat embossed the sentiment from Rose Garden in white onto a piece of Midnight Cardstock
that I had diecut using the Pop Up Circle Confetti Cuts.
 I also heat embossed the bloom and leaves from Rose Garden onto vellum diecuts.


On this card, I used a mask to blend Lime Green Ink and Iced Aqua Ink
onto my panel.
I diecut the Rose Garden Confetti Cuts from vellum and heat embossed them in white.


I stamped the sentiment directly onto my panel.


And lastly, I created this card by stamping the Rose Garden stamps, with a little masking
onto my watercolour panel and heat embossing them in gold.
I coloured them in using my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers.


I had fun colouring these flowers in, but realized that they didn't fit the tone of 
a sympathy card, so I used the other sentiment from Rose Garden instead.
I added some a couple of score lines to fit with the sketch.

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see the rest of the DT's takes on the sketch 
and to play along, if you'd like.
You have until Thursday, June 15th to link up your card.
