Reverse Confetti April Blog Hop *****GIVEAWAY

Hello, friends:}

***Giveaway details below:)

Today is the 8th of the month and that means it's time for a creative blog hop with the Reverse Confetti DT and friends! We are inspiring you with projects and cards using the NEW release stamp sets (well... all of the RC stamps really!). We also have some EXTRA fans joining in the fun with the DT!!! ***GIVEAWAY: you could win a $15 gift certificate!!! Just leave a comment on the hop posts! Comments stay open until the 10th at noon CST.  

If you came from Lisa's blog, you are in the right place-- if you would like to start from the beginning of the hop, please click HERE or go to the Reverse Confetti blogIt would be worth your while to start at the beginning of the hop, so you don't miss a thing!!! We have tons of inspiration for you to see using RC's brand new stamp sets and CONFETTI CUT die cuts!!! 

I decided to share two cards today! They are very similar but different because one could be for a girl and the other for a guy! 
I used the RC SFYTT #11 as my design base-- ok.... I know what you are thinking! "Sav didn't follow the sketch!" You are right! If you know me, I tend to stray from the sketches:) I used the three rectangles as my inspiration for the feathers. I wanted the larger center panel to be the sentiment. The only way that would work with the vellum feathers is to almost take it out of the sketch. OOPS!
I used the Chickaniddy Crafts Date Night and Twirly Girl papers and embellishments for both cards. LOOOOOOOVE! I used the RC Paper Crane for both cards, as well as the Petals 'N Posies for the little dots (up in the right hand corner of the image) on the feathers for the second card. LOVE that little detail! These cards are PERFECT for the two people in my life who are graduating SOON!!!!!!!!

These are awesome! Love the colors, the mix of patterns, the softness added by the vellum feathers, and the slight angle of the main panels. I think they are a wonderful interpretation of the sketch!!!

Love how you used both the feather die cuts and the negative cut for both of these fabulous cards! As for following the sketch, I'd be disappointed if you DID follow it, and not use it as a jumping off point to make it your own! LOL!
