REVERSE CONFETTI MAY RELEASE BLOG HOP

It’s finally here –> the Reverse Confetti’s May Release Blog Hop and the whole gang is here to show you all the amazing projects we’ve put together to encourage you to shop! Remember, all of the products are available today!

For my projects today, I am showcasing the Big Confetti Tag, Birthday Buddies Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies with the Birthday Banter Stamp Set, along with the Circle Gift Card Holder Confetti Cuts and Layered Friend Confetti Cuts and Large Rainbow Circle Confetti Cuts.

The first project is a gift tag that I made for a friend, showcasing the Big Confetti Tag. I used the Big Confetti Tag to die-cut some cute pattern paper and some 110 lb. Neenah card stock for stability.

I adhered the pattern paper on the card stock and added acetate sheet and foam-adhesive to create my shaker well. I die-cut the layered bits using the same Big Confetti Tag on different colors of card stock with some star confetti as my shaker elements. I adhered them together to close the shaker

I added the sentiment from the Birthday Banter Stamp Set and finished the design by adding the ribbon and baker’s twine.

For my next project, I decided to create and clean and simple card. I wanted to showcase the beautiful Large Rainbow Circle that I adhered on the Circle Gift Card Holder. The Rainbow Die-Cut perfectly covers the middle of the Circle Gift Card Holder that I adhered on a top-folding white card base.

The Large Rainbow Circle was used to die-cut some Neenah solar white card stock, and colored using alcohol markers. I adhered the pieces together using some wide packing tape and adhered on the card front.

Next, I die-cut the word “friend” using the Layered Friend Confetti Cuts and also added the sentiment “you are so loved”. I adhered both pieces with some liquid glue to finish the design. Here’s another look:

I hope you got inspired and like my projects this week! Hop along with us and see all the amazing projects prepared by the entire team with our special guest designers! Thanks for stopping by and have an amazing day!

COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI – DAY 3 – Love Wins

Thank you for stopping by today and joining me for the Countdown to Confetti Day 3 by Reverse Confetti. We have lots to show you and there is also a GIVEAWAY so please read through the end of this post to find out how you can WIN!

For today’s reveal, we are showcasing the Love Wins Stamp Set and Love Wins Coordinating Confetti Cuts. I also used the Head in the Clouds Cover Panel. A portion of sales will be made to both Human Rights Campaign and The Trevor Project.

This is one of my favorite stamp sets from the latest release. I think it’s really beautifully-illustrated and is another must-have for any stamper/card-maker.

The images from the Love Wins Stamp Set were stamped on some X-Press It blending card stock and colored with alcohol markers. I die-cut the images using the Love Wins coordinating dies.

Next, I prepared the background panel by using the Head in the Clouds Cover Panel to die-cut some 110 lb. Neenah Solar White Card Stock. I foam-mounted the positive die-cut on some A2-size notecard and ink-blended the negative using some clouds stencil and light blue dye ink. I adhered this panel with liquid glue.

I die-cut the grass border panel using the Nuts About You Confetti Cuts (retiring) and foam-mounted to the card for added dimension. I adhered the colored images with either foam adhesive and liquid glue. Here’s another look:

COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI – DAY 2 – A Beautiful Day, Roses & Wildflowers

Thank you for stopping by today and joining me for the Countdown to Confetti Day 2 by Reverse Confetti. We have lots to show you and there is also a GIVEAWAY so please read through the end of this post to find out how you can WIN!

Brace yourselves because we have A LOT to show you! For today’s reveal, we are showcasing the A Beautiful Day Stamp Set, A Beautiful Day Coordinating Confetti Cuts, along with the Roses Stamp Set, Roses Coordinating Confetti Cuts, Wildflowers Stamp Set and Wildflowers Coordinating Confetti Cuts.

For my first project, I also used the beautiful Folklore Cover Panel.

Simplicity is the key component for this first project. The background was die-cut using the Folklore Cover Panel Confetti Cuts and adhered on a top-folding notecard.

The images from the A Beautiful Day Stamp Set were stamped on some Bristol Smooth White card stock with Versamark ink, and heat-set with heating tool. I used some distress oxide inks to blend the colors on each butterfly, then used the A Beautiful Day Coordinating Confetti Cuts to die-cut the images.

I foam-mounted the die-cut images on the card panel for added dimension and finished the design by adhering the sentiment that was heat-embossed on some black card stock.

For my second project, I am showcasing the Roses Stamp Set and Roses Coordinating Confetti Cuts.

I die-cut the background panel using the Roses Confetti Cuts with some pattern paper. I adhered this panel with liquid glue on some top-folding notecard. I watered down some white paint and used the brush to splatter some on the background panel for added interest.

The images from the Roses Stamp Set were stamped on some X-Press It Blending Card and colored with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating die to cut it out and adhered on the card front with foam adhesive for added dimension. I finished the design by adding the sentiment strip. Here’s another look:

For my third and last project for the day, I am showcasing the Wildflowers Stamp Set and Wildflowers Coordinating Confetti Cuts, along with the Outlined Frame Cover Panel.

I die-cut the some Neenah solar white card stock using the Outlined Framed Cover Panel and adhered this on some blue top-folding notecard.

Next, I stamped the images from the Wildflowers Stamp Set on some X-Press it Blending card and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I used the Wildflowers Coordinating Die to die-cut the image and adhered on the card with liquid glue.

I finished the card design by stamping the sentiment and used some white gel pen to draw dots to the images for added texture. Here’s another look:

Friendship Card with Reverse Confetti

Hello everyone! Happy Friday! I am pleased to tell you all that a few of the stamps & dies that were sold out from the January release are now back in stock at the Reverse Confetti Shop!

My card today features the Poppies stamp set. This time, I stamped it the way it should be without all of the glitter in between.

Here’s an easy, peasy design for you that you can mass-produce! I stamped the outline image first with some Ink-On-3 Fadeout ink. I didn’t want the outline to show but I still needed it so that I can position the flowers and leaves perfectly. I used 3 color variations of peach dye inks to stamp the flowers first, then moved on to stamping the leaves with two shades of green.

I stamped the sentiment on some black card stock with Versamark ink and sprinkled some white embossing powder then heat-set with my heating tool. I foam-mounted the sentiment onto the card for added dimension.

I used some white gel pen and added dots to the centers of each flower for more texture and adhered some Clear Heart Droplets to finish the design. Here’s another look:

I hope you like my card today and got inspired. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
