Confetti - Creation Station Blog Hop #5

Sunday, July 6, 2014

Confetti, it's all the rage!  It's also the theme for this round of the Creation Station blog hop.  I based this design around a piece of the Lullaby Designer Series papers that I thought had a confetti feel to it. I've added a vellum pocket filled with actual confetti I've created using small circles punched from matching coloured cardstock and gold sequins.

On the front of this pocket I've added a cute rhino from the Zoo Babies stamp set.  He is wearing a party hat stamped from the Sketched Birthday set.  I trimmed the hat a little so it was just the right size for him.

The sentiment comes from the Geometrical stamp set. I initially stamped it in black and then changed my mind and decided to go with Soft Suede instead - this meant handcutting each letter out and sticking it over the top but I actually like the effect.  I've added a little exclamation mark to centre the sentiment better below the banner.

For this second design, I've featured some of our brand new in-colours - Lost Lagoon, Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey. The faux watercolour look comes courtesy from the Work of Art stamp set.  I've double stamped each colour here to create a slightly layered look.  Then I embossed the cake from the Sketched Birthday set alongside this cute sentiment from Yippee-Skippee!

In keeping with the confetti theme, I've added a spray of punch cut circles - and a few love hearts too - from matching cardstock, made using the Owl punch.  There are a few sequins thrown into the mix for good measure!

I hope that you have enjoyed these designs.  Don't be shy, be kind and comment if so!  I love hearing from you.  Now be sure to hop over to see what the rest of the Creation Station team have created!
