Reverse Confetti Blog Hop

Hello August and Hello REVERSE CONFETTI Fans!  I am so excited to have been asked to join in with the Confetti girls today!  It’s the 8th of the month –Blog Hop time!  Are ya’ll ready to savor some sweet inspiration?  Grab a cuppa and take some time to enjoy this month’s creative Blog Hop from Reverse Confetti.  Last month’s release was fantastic and today we are inspiring you with projects and cards using those stamps and any other previously released stamps from Reverse Confetti.  Along with the Confetti Crew (our fabulous design team), we’ve also invited some extra friends to join in on the action! 




The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog, and you should have made it here from Val Stangle's blog. It would be worth your while to start at the beginning of the hop, so you don’t miss a thing. We have tons of inspiration for you to see using all of Reverse Confetti’s amazing stamp sets!

I have 2 cards to share today.  This first one uses Arrows 'n Elements and Inner Rock Star.

I cut out a shape from the Silhouette store with my cameo for the pink stripes in the background.  Then I stamped several elements from the Arrows 'n Elements set and cut them out.  For the main image, I stamped the guitar in Hero Arts Soft Granite and then stamped over it using the pink ink for the shadow and the black ink on top.  I added in a little black pearl to finish it off.  

My next card is pretty CAS using stamps only from the Inner Rock Star set....

I stamped the wings, sentiment and record all in black and then masked in the "ROCK" with pink ink.  I used an exacto knife and cut out the wings so they would lift up.  I covered the inside of the card with pink card stock to match the sentiment.  To finish it off, I covered the record in Glossy Accents.
