Stamp Focus: Kind confetti (and Blog Hop Winner)

Hello friends!
Warning: photo-heavy post
It is my turn to do a Stamp Focus Feature over Altenew Card Blog today!

s
This time, the stamp set "Kind Confetti " is featured!
(you may think they are just dots...but they are much more than that! 😁)

 I am delighted to share 3 projects with you. The background stamp set "Kind Confetti" from our November release proves to be one of the most fun and versatile stamp sets. No matter what your style of card-making is, this set is sure to add that extra something! I call it "magic dust." With the various designs, you can get an overview of how this stamp set can take your cards to the next level!

 My 2nd card features the Dandelion Wishes Stamp/Die Bundle. I followed the insert and stamped the most basic way with the Dandelion.

 To create a dreamy background, I stamped the Kind Confetti with various colors: Ruby Red and Ocean Wave. Here comes the magic. I embossed the 3 layer in Antique Silver Crisp Embossing Powder.

 And just like that, the silver shine really comes through, especially under the light! Before adhering the card, I applied a piece of Watercolor Strokes Washi Tape on the card stock and popped it up with a large piece of foam tape.

My 2nd card really shows how Kind Confetti evokes the celebratory and festive feel to a birthday card.

To create light colors for the background, I used the lightest shades from the ink pad combo. Then I embossed a piece of card stock with Caribbean Sky and Florescent Green. I placed a piece of Golden Edge Washi Tape on to the embossed card stock. Finally, I applied the Halftone Squares Dies to the card stock using the Mini Blossom.

 For good measure, I even stamped Kind Confetti to the cake! Adding that sentiment from Cake Love Stamp/Die Bundle was icing on the cake!

My 3rd card, with Engraved Flowers Stamp/Die Bundle, shows that ANY floral design can be enhanced by a background stamp such as Kind Confetti.

The Engraved Flowers were embossed in Antique Gold and colored with Watercolor Brush Markers.

 Then I cut the card stock at an angle and popped the flowers over Parchment Cardstock to show some contrast. Lastly, I sprinkled my magic dust by stamping Kind Confetti with grey ink from Rock Collection. I added more shine with Stickles.

 I hope today's Stamp Focus provides you with some inspiration and design ideas! I can honestly say that Kind Confetti is the BEST kind of confetti without having to clean up the mess!
