Countdown to Confetti Day 3 - Figure of Speech


It's Day 3 in our Countdown to Confetti!! The new stamps and dies will be ready for purchase tomorrow in the Reverse Confetti Store!   I know you've been good and I sure hope you find some under the tree!   Maybe you'll get luck and win some this week! 
Today we're showing the new FIGURE OF SPEECH Stamp set with matching Confetti Cuts!  This is a set of 6 Speech Bubbles that you can put together to make phrases or use all by themselves! 
I used Reverse Confetti inks to stamp and distress these.  I originally cut the dies and then stamped the panel underneath through the openings.  When I went to line them up some of the words weren't so straight.. so time to give it a second go.  This technique worked perfectly. 

Stamp the images where you want them on a panel of card stock.  I used my Misti so I could stamp them more than once and get the solid images really inky.  Next I laid a sheet of vellum over the stamped images and taped the dies in place. (Note: Tracing paper would work great too.)   Then I took the vellum sheet with the taped dies and laid it on a white card stock panel and ran it through my die cut machine.  Everything lined up perfectly and I have the white die cut bubbles to stamp on later.

Next I took a dauber and distressed the edges of the die cut speech bubbles.   I blended the colors and then splashed them with white ink.
I love the blending - this reminds me of cards I've been seeing with "outer space" backgrounds. I think this would make a great "guy" card. 
Here's a list of the other designers who have projects to share today....



See you tomorrow during the new release blog hop!
