Reverse Confetti: June Blog Hop

It's the 8th of May which means the Reverse Confetti Blog Hop!  Today's theme is:  Summer

You should have arrived here from Heather Hoffman's awesome blog!  If not, you'll want to start at the beginning of the fun which is the Reverse Confetti blog!

Here's a peek at my projects:

I had so much fun picking out a couple of Summer Themed stamp sets:

Think Pink
Pineapple Aplenty

So do you see an overall trend with my card trio?

First up is the Mahalo card:

I used the Paper Bliss Paper Pad with all three cards.  Do you spy stencil work?  I used the Pointed Out stencil.   It might look a bit ombre'.  That was totally a happy accident, I tend to neglect cleaning up all the time.  There was residual ink on the stencil and then I added Sunshine ink on top of it.  I love the look.

TIP:  Card set production can be made easier if you work with the same paper collection and card sketch

Ink colors I used:

Rose  •  Lime Green  •  Sunshine  •  Dark Roast  • Midnight

Another recurring element I used was the Circles 'n Scallops confetti cuts for all of the main images to nestle on.

Next up is Think Pink:

Aren't you loving the Paper Bliss patterns?!  So filled with fun colors and designs.

I think those sweet flamingos in Think Pink are so sweet!  

Lots of foam dimensionals on this card.  I finished off the card with pops of black.

My final card features Pineapple Aplenty:

I was having a bunch of happy accidents.  I originally stamped out the Summer Lovin' pineapple with Sunshine + Rose ink.  I didn't like the look, cleaned it off and stamped it with Piggy Bank.  Well, in my haste, I didn't clean off the stamp that well because the Rose still stamped out with the Piggy Bank giving it an ombre' effect.  How lucky was I?

The ink duo I used:

Pistachio  •  Piggy Bank

My cards were inspired by Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch:

That's it for me, next up is my teamie, Kathy Schweinfurth!
