Reverse Confetti:Sneak Peek Day 1

Hi there,  I am thrilled to be sharing sneak peeks for the Reverse Confetti July release.  I know you can't hear me giggling, but I am!

  Before we get started with the show and tell, I wanted to let you know that if you leave a comment on each of the designers blogs during the sneak peeks and you could win a $15.00 gift certificate for the store.  The details are listed below:

I am sharing two cards with you today using the Inner Rock Star and Whole Lotta Dots sets.

Isn't she cute?  As soon as I saw this set I knew I wanted my card to be bright and fun!  I stamped the dots from Whole Lotta Dots in neon purple ink and then stamped the records in neon yellow at the top of the panel. I added a sentiment from the Inner Rock Star set and then stamped the skull image and colored and fussy cut it out and popped up for a little dimension.  I added glitter glue to her flower and glossy accents to the bones.  

I decided to do a card that was a little more masculine for the boys in our lives and this is what I came up with.

This one has a bit of a grungy feel with all of the distressed edges.  I started with a green card base and stamped the large dots from Whole Lotta Dots in white ink.   Since I was going for a distressed look, I did not put the stamp on a block.  Instead I just held it in my fingers, pressed in the ink and then directly onto the cardstock.  This gave me the grungy effect I was going for.  After embossing the craft and added a bit more white ink, I layered it to some navy cardstock and then added to the front of the card.  Next, I stamped the guitar from the Inner Rock Star set in green ink and fussy cut it out.  I stamped the sentiment two times, once in navy and again in green.  I layered the navy sentiment to a green panel, cut the green flag from the second image and popped it up for a two tone effect.

Here are these amazing sets in all their glory.

Be sure to leave a comment for a chance to win and head on over to the Reverse Confetti blog for a complete list of designers sharing sneak peeks today.

You might never be too old to be a rock star, but what I notice abt these old rockers is they sure don't jump around on stage like they used to!!!
