Reverse Confetti | Summer ’22 Blog Hop & Inspiration

July 15, 2022

Hello friends! I’m thrilled to be joining in on the Reverse Confetti Summer ’22 Blog Hop! I have two cards to share with you today that showcase the new Dog Days and Dog Days Sentiments Stamp Sets.

For my first card, I created a box card by hand using some white card stock, a paper trimmer, scoring board, and some liquid adhesive. I layered this box with both Spellbinder’s Cosmic Sky and Snowdrift Card Stock. Once finished, I then stamped, colored, and cut my images. I used Copic Markers to color them but you can use whatever medium you are comfortable with.

I used the coordinating Dog Days Confetti Cuts to color my images and some Copic Markers to color them. I added a few sand dunes to the shelves inside my box card by first cutting 4 small strips of card stock and then blending them with Antique Linen Distress Oxide Ink.

I used the same stamp set for my second card but this time I created a one-layer card instead of adding dimension. I first stamped my images onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and then masked them with Gina K Designs Masking Magic Sheets so that I could ink my background without inking my images. I lightly blended my background with some Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide for the sky and Antique Linen for the the sand.

I absolutely love this new stamp set and had a lot of fun making my projects today. Hop along the list below for some more inspiration!
