RAINY DAY FUN

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...
. . . . .
Amy and Kelly are back today with some fabulous bits of inspiration using the new goodies.

 

Make a splash! Here I've combined Rainy Day Fun with the new See Through Tag. 

 

 

I stacked four of the See Through Tag diecuts to create a shaker window, which I filled with clear sequins. Behind the tag is a Buttercup stitched frame from the Stitched Note & Frames Confetti Cuts set. 

 

 

I added the girl with her colorful umbrella (paper pieced from a Cue the Confetti pattern), some clouds and raindrops, along with the darling little duck splashing in a puddle.

And, from Kelly...

 

This week is full of Rainbows and Sunshine as you can see! 

I've used the some of the sweet images from the Rainy Day Fun stamp set to help enhance the "make a splash" sentiment that I used on today's design! I just love that cute little ducky making a scene! To begin this design, I layered a piece of pattern paper from the Under The Umbrella 6 by 6 paper pad onto an A2 top folding card base. I also added a white frame around the edges using the Stitched Notes and Frames Confetti Cuts.

I used the "note"  portion as well to set the scene for this design. The images are stamped in black and colored using Copic markers. I die cut them using the Rainy Day Fun Confetti Cuts and added them to the card using foam squares.

 

The "splashes" and duck's bill have a coating of crystal glaze over the top for some added shine. I also added some ink splatter to the clouds for some added detail. A few sparkling clear sequins finish off this design.

 . . . . .

 

Our next reveal is another fabulous sentiment set, much like the previously released Word Up stamp set.  We had SO MANY sentiments that we wanted to include in that one that we broke it up into two sets.  Introducing...

 

SO MANY SENTIMENTS

 

 

This sentiment set pairs so well with so many of the stamp sets and Confetti Cuts dies with this release and so many other previously released products!

 

. . . . .

 

From Amy...

 

 

 

If you loved Word Up, you're also going to love So Many Sentiments. Here, I've let the sentiment inspire the rest of the card design.

 

 

I cut a Polar White card stock panel with the new On The Curve Cover Panel, ink-blended the negatives in rainbow colors, then inlaid them back into the cover panel.

 

 

I added a white embossed sentiment on vellum, clouds from Rainbow & Clouds Confetti Cuts, white splatter and sequins.

 

 

. . . . .

 

And, from Kelly....

 

I am in love with all of the products being showcased today! In fact, I am "over-the-rainbow" excited to share with you how I created today's designs!

 

To begin, I die cut the Stitched Rays Cover Panel and did some ink blending, working my way from the circle to the outer edges.  I also die cut the smaller frame from the  Stitched Note and Frames Confetti Cuts. 

 

Once that was done, I set it aside and got to work creating the rainbow. This is such a nifty new die that will have you wanting to Rainbow EVERYTHING! Once I had all of the colors cut, I simply taped them together on the backside and then added them to my design. The clouds also have a bit of ink blending around the edges as well as some ink splatters for detail and dimension.

This card uses  A LOT of foam squares to give it the dimension I was hoping to achieve. The sun, that is also included in the Over the Rainbow Cover Panel is die cut in two different yellow colors of cardstock. I am seriously in love with the variety of sentiments in the new So Many Sentiments set. I stamped one of my favorites in black and added it to the top of the card. The "hello" sentiment is die cut 3 times using the Thanks and Hello Word Duos and glued together for stability. It is adhered to the rainbow and I just love how it looks against the rainbow colors. I had so much fun creating this card! 

 

. . . . .

The new Over The Rainbow Confetti Cuts die set is SO much fun! I've had a ball using it and I still have lots more ideas that I can't wait to try! I wanted to pair it with the new Split Circle Cover Panel because those little half circles look just like little rainbows, don't you think?

 

I die cut the Cover Panel, but left some of the pieces still in place. I added some adhesive on the back and attached it to a standard A2 top folding card base. I also added the smaller frame from the Stitched Note and Frames Confetti Cuts to add some contrast. It is the perfect place to add the rainbow as well. I die cut all of the different colors of the rainbow.

 

Once they were arranged, I added some scotch tape to the back to connect them all. It was so easy to add some foam squares and add them to the card. The clouds have some ink splatter for some added detail and contrast. 

 

The sentiment is from the new So Many Sentiments and is heat embossed in white onto a black strip of cardstock. I love how it looks tucked underneath the sun. I added a few sparkling clear rhinestones for some sparkle and shine.

Ok, now it's time we send you on your way to see what the rest of the Confetti Crew has to share with you today!
