Reverse Confetti March 2019 Blog Hop

Hello there, today we are celebrating the March 2019 release from Reverse Confetti. It is a wonderful release and I have two projects to share with you today, using two new sets and the new paper pad. If you are following along in the hop, you should have arrived here from the fantastic Kathy but if you get lost along the way, I have the full list of participants below.
For both of my projects today, I am using the adorable new Spring Pals set, along with the fantastic Word Up set. The Spring Pals set consists of lots of spring critters, as well as fabulous sentiments. The Word Up set is made to combine with word dies but as you can see, you can use it alone with lots of other stamp sets too.

For my card, I started off by stamping the duck, little chick and wheelbarrow images on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then coloured them with Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area), adding shimmer to the flowers with an Aqua Shimmer Pen. They were then cut out using the Spring Pals Confetti Cuts and set aside.
I took a panel of white cardstock and masked off the bottom portion. I blended Broken China Distress Ink on to the top portion. I then removed the mask and placed this above the line where I had blended the blue ink. I then blended Mowed Lawn Distress Ink below to create grass and sky. I removed the mask and stamped the sentiment from the Word Up set below, with black ink. The panel was added to an A2 white card base with foam tape. I then added the wheelbarrow, duck and chick on top with more foam tape. To finish off, I added Crystal Glaze to the duck's beak.
My next project uses the frog/toad image from the Spring Pals set. He was stamped on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, coloured with Copic Markers and cut out with the Spring Pals Confetti Cuts. I then took the Grid Stitched Tag Die and cut this from white cardstock, as well as the cloud image from the Snow Bunnies Confetti Cuts set twice and the sun from the Sun 'n Clouds Confetti Cuts set.
I took a piece of paper from the new Darling Dots Paper Pad and cut this using the Grid Stitched Tag Die. I cut the top portion in to a hill and then added this on to the white tag with tape runner. I then added the frog on top with foam tape. I took the sun die cut and coloured this with Copic Markers before adhering it to the tag with tape runner. The clouds were then added on top. I took the sentiment from the Word Up set and stamped this on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. This was cut in to a strip and added to the tag with more foam tape. To finish off, I added hemp twine through the top of the tag and tied in a bow.
