Somewhere Beyond the Sea - June 'Fetti Friend

Hey everybody! I am so happy and honored to be the Reverse Confetti June 'Fetti Friend (Guest Designer)! Today I am showing the first of my projects using products from the upcoming release. I'm sure you'll love the cute stamps and dies, it's such a fun release! You will see why I chose the title "somewhere beyond the sea" in a second. I can't help but sing this song while working with these products :) Maybe you'll sing along with me after reading my post!
Here comes my first sneak peek for you, using the Mermaid Kisses stamp set and its matching dies:


Isn't that mermaid darling? I started with a panel of watercolor paper and applied blue and green dye inks. Then I added droplets of water. After everything was dried, I stamped my sentiment. Now I die-cut a frame from white cardstock and adhered it to the panel with foam tape. I stamped, colored and die-cut the images and adhered them to the panel, using foam tape for more dimension. Then I adhered the panel to the card and finished everything off with matching sequins.


This is Day one of the Sneak Peeks from the Reverse Confetti June Release. The new products will be in the store on June 8th. Be sure to visit the Reverse Confetti Blog to see what the Confetti Crew has created!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
