The Greetery Confetti Collection Release + Blog Hop Day 1


Welcome, Friends!

I'm so excited to be participating in the inspirational blog hop today with the rest of The Greetery friends! This new release is so fabulous, as always!

If you're looking for some fantastic birthday and celebration stamp and die sets, then this release is for you! You can find the entire release here on Friday, May 29th at 10 am EST, but I'm going to share a few projects using a few of the sets in the release. The Greetery Blog is where our fun starts out today, so be sure to stop by there first for some gorgeous inspiration and more details about the release!

First up is this happy and bright party on a card! I used the Twisted Crepe die and a sentiment from the Birthday Blooms die set to create the elements on this card. Additionally, I used the Ticker Tape Background stamp to create the soft gray confetti background. 




I removed the foam piece from my MISTI and then I placed the background stamp on the door. I applied Weathered Wood Distress Oxide ink on the stamp and then closed it down on to a cut and scored 4.25 x 5.5 inch card base that I'd placed inside the MISTI. 



I then cut several streamer pieces from the Twisted Crepe die and applied several colors of Distress Oxide ink over them with a finger dauber, alternating the dark color and the lighter color, so it looks like the crepe paper is twisted! 




After applying foam tape to the back of the streamer pieces, I placed them across the front of the card.

I stamped and die cut a sentiment from the Birthday Blooms set, applied foam tape to the back of that sentiment piece and then finished off the card by placing it across the front of the card as well.

For the second card, I stamped several floral pieces from the Birthday Blooms set in a light and dark pink ink and then set them aside to assemble later. I then created the card base, by cutting and scoring a white c4.25 x 5.5 inch card base and then glued down a 4.25 x 5.5 inch piece of pink patterned paper on to the top of the card base.



It's so fun to combine sets to create different looks, so the Sketchbook Roses stamp set also made an appearance for this card! 



I created a small panel from a scrap piece of paper  and using a light pink ink. I adhered a piece of foam behind the panel and then glued that down to a piece of blush cardstock. After adhering that smaller panel set down to my card base, I then stamped a sentiment down in the center.


Arranging the floral images was the most enjoyable part of making this card! I glued them down along the left side of the card and then applied small pieces of foam tape behind the parts that were hanging off the left edge, so that everything would be an even dimension.

For my last card, I used the Big Balloons Die set and Ticker Tape background stamp again. I created the background using the same process of removing the foam from my MISTI and placing a 4.25 x 5.5 inch card panel inside. I applied gray ink on the stamp and then closed my MISTI. 



I die cut three balloons out of pastel colored cardstocks I had in my scraps and then applied Distress Oxide inks around the edges of the balloons to give them some dimension and highlights. 



After applying some foam on to the back of the balloon pieces and gluing them down to the card panel, I colored the balloon strings with a black marker and then glued those down flat on to the panel.



I stamped and die cut a sentiment from the Birthday Blooms set and then trimmed down the right and left edges of the panel before gluing the finished panel down to a cut and scored light blue 4.25 x 5.5 inch card base.
