More fun with Confetti Wishes

As promised yesterday I have some more fun cards created using the Confetti Wishes Paper pack. I love this paper it is so much fun to work with, the bright colors and happy vibe just make you smile.  Ok so here we go, two more cards.

Card 1 -


I have to say of the five cards I made this is my favorite, I love the colors, the design and I really love that sentiment.  Ok so here is how it was made.

I started with the white daisy 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" card base.  I added a piece of lagoon that was 4 x 5 1/4" and then a piece of the B&T (remember that is the Background and Texture paper or one of the 6 sheets, two sided, three different patters that are included with the card stock in the paper pack) that was 3 3/4 x 5".  Next I cut a piece of the Daisy White card stock to 3 x 3" and stamped it with these cute little dot stamps that I got in the stamp set that comes with the Confetti Wishes Scrapbooking Workshop on the Go (I am planning to do this scrapbook kit soon and I ordered it and an extra paper pack so I could make scrapbook pages and cards both).  I used all the color inks that were on the paper to include lagoon, pear, paifica, thistle, and canary and then mounted it onto a piece of the lagoon that measured 3 1/4 x 3 1/4".  I love how it turned out but if you didn't want to do this you could just as easily use a piece of one of the other patterns from the B&T papers.  Finally I cut a piece of the B&T to 1 x 4 3/4 and cut a little v into it and did the same with a piece of white daisy that measured 3/4 x 4 3/4" that I stamped using thistle ink and one of the most versatile stamp sets I have purchased ever the Big Hug stamp set.  Oh and lets not forget I just had to add a purple glitter dot.

Card 2 -



This is another of those cards that can be sent to brighten anyone's day.  So easy and yet anyone would love to receive it.

Base is the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" white daisy card base.  B&T paper cut to 4 x 5 layered on that.  Piece of white daisy cut to 3 x 4 1/4" stamped with the Lovely Birthday stamp set (the flower is stamped on a scrap of white daisy and then a piece of 3-D foam tape is used to pop it up), the colors used were lagoon and two new colors, thistle and canary (love them).  This piece is mounted onto a piece of lagoon (could use the canary, pacifica or crystal blue from the paper pack instead) that is cut to 3 1/4 x 4 1/2 and then finally a strip of the B&T paper that measures 5/8 x 5 1/2" is adhered across the bottom of the whole card.

I wanted to point out here that I made these two cards plus the three from yesterdays post all with two pieces of the B&T paper, a little strip of a third sheet and some card stock I had let from other projects.  Cards are a great way to use up those scraps of paper.  Get creative and try something new.  If you need inspiration Close to My Heart sells some great layout books that I refer to often to get my creative juices flowing. All the supplies I used are listed below and you can purchase them from my website at www.craftwithronnie.ctmh.com or by clicking the shopping basket at the top of this post.  Happy Crafting!!!!!!!!!!!!!
