I’m playing along with the Essentials by Ellen Mix It Up Challenge and mixing it up with some Reverse Confetti. I love the stamps from both of these companies and decided to play with All Inside from Essentials from Ellen.
For my first card I die cut the bear image from All Inside in kraft paper and used the Bear Ware set and die cut and stamped the balloon and present in pink card-stock. I used the same Reverse Confetti Rose cardstock and used the RC Happy Pretty Panel for the word happy. I love this die since there are several ways you can use the pieces. I then took the Reverse Confetti Iced Aqua cardstock and die cut it with the Big Stripes Cover plate. I used the RC Whole Lotts Happy set for the sentiment. The base is RC Piggy Bank cardstock and such a nice heavy card stock. I added some glossy accents to the bright pink layers and some Carnation Pink Nuvo Crystal Drops.
For my second card, I wanted to make a teacher thank you card. I created a background with Chartreuse and Cerulean Color Burst on some Bristol Smooth paper. Once my background dried I used this fun ABC Cover plate from Reverse Confetti.
I love the way the background turned out and so decided to add the thanks from the Fancy Words sentiment from the RC Fancy Word Confetti Cuts to the inside.
For my third card I decided to dress the bear up a little. I have this adorable onsie from RC Cute as a Button Set and decided to see if I could get the bear into the onsie.
I stamped the onsie in RC Aqua ink and then die cut it. I watercolored the bear with my Zigs and then elongated him but cutting him into thirds so that he would fit into the onsie.
Once I had all the pieces glued together, I added some glossy accents to the onsie. I placed the bear on a Reverse Confetti Quick Card Panel.
I used the hello die cut from RC Fancy Words cuts and used glossy accents to make it shine. The sentiment is from RC Fancy Word set and clear heat embossed it. Of course no card is complete without a little embellishing so I added the Dandelion Yellow Crystal Nuvo drops.
