It's a Hop With Reverse Confetti and My Sweet Petunia!


Hello! It's the First Day of Spring! And what better way to celebrate than a blog hop with Reverse Confetti and My Sweet Petunia?! I am honored to be participating in this hop with two of my favorite companies and these talented designers and friends!

Two lucky commenters from the hop to win one of two prizes: a $60 shopping spree at www.mysweetpetunia.com and a $60 shopping spree at www.reverseconfetti.com! Leave your comments no later than Sunday, March 25th, at 11:59 PM Central time and winners will be announced on Tuesday March 27th, on the Reverse Confetti and My Sweet Petunia blogs. So be sure to visit everyone (list is below) -- especially for all of the great ideas and inspiration!

It's all true -- the MISTI changed my stamping life! You have heard the stories, and I can attest to the truthfulness of mine! Esepcially when it comes to textured paper, like some watercolor brands with tooth, as in my first sample.
I made my background using the Wrinkle Free Distress technique. When it was dry, I used my Original MISTI, and lined up my stamp where I wanted on the watercolor panel. I closed the lid, and slightly readjusted, according to the grid lines.

For my first project, I used a sentiment from My Heart Trusts. I love the font! I inked it up, and then restamped, because of the paper's texture. Two times stamping, and it came out perfectly!


I also wanted to use the Squared Off Cover Panel Confetti Cuts for interest, to show some of the other cardstock color. I added some lace, a paper doily, and paper flower for embellishments. 

My second card is made with the adorable No Tomorrow dinosaur stamp set and matching Confetti Cuts. I adore these little guys; they have such personality! For this card, I wanted to also use the Hello Square Confetti Cuts and make a shaker card. 

I stamped one of the leaves on my background paper from the Cheerful & Kind 6x6 Paper Pad, and colored it in with a Prismacolor Pencil. I added a little Wink of Stella for some sparkle.
I stamped my dino and grass all at once using my Mini MISTI. I like the look of embossing, so used clear embossing powder for all three images. I then added the other elements after coloring (Copics), and cutting them out with the Confetti Cuts. I even added some dew drops that were one of my first purchases years ago!


Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek at my projects. Be sure to check out the entire Reverse Confetti Shop, and My Sweet Petunia for all of the MISTI tips and accessories!

Next on the hop is the amazing Jeanne Jachna!
