Reverse Confetti Sneak Peak Day 1 & Case Study Guest Designer!

Hiya! Well it's about to be a busy week here on the blog, we have a new Reverse Confetti release comin' at you on the 7th! Sneak peeks are starting today so snuggle in with a cup of coffee and enjoy the blog hop! Start at the Reverse Confetti blog for a list of blogs to browse. My blog post is a bit early this morning, so the link on the RC blog will be active around 5:00 am CST


Today, we're sharing sneak peeks at a new set called Count Your Rainbows


Here's a card I created with one of the sentiments, and the polka dots from Whole Lotta Dots!




I have been asked to be the guest designer for the month of September over at the Case Study challenge blog and this week is my first week there! I'm so excited, this is such a fun challenge!! This month, the muse on the blog is Kathy Racoosin! She has a fabulous style and I really enjoyed drawing inspiration from her card! I chose to use the label shape she had on her card as well as a nice floral paper from MME. 

Go on over to the Case Study blog to see the other girls vision of  Kathleen's card! 


I highlighted some of the key words in this sentiment with a Copic marker. As you can see, I didn't use the right kind of black ink for this, lol! I just love this gray paper, it's SU!'s Smoky Slate, it's gorgeous paired with this pastel designer paper!

Here's a fun little graphic showing all the ways (well not all, I'm sure...there are probably more ways you will see to combine the sentiments!) you can combine the elements in this stamp set


Don't forget to leave a comment on everyone's blogs today, one random commenter will win a $15 gift card to the Reverse Confetti store!

Thanks for stopping by, I'll see ya back here tomorrow!
