FEBRUARY CREATIVE HOP with Reverse Confetti

I am so happy to join Reverse Confetti’s February Creative Hop where you’ll find a lot of AMAZING inspiration using products from the January release. Check out the hop listing below to see the wonderful inspiration by the entire team.

For my project today, I am showcasing the Love Bugs Stamp Set and Love Bugs Confetti Cuts, along with the Valentine Sentiments stamp set and the Bubbles Confetti Cuts.

Here’s how I made this card:

  • stamp the images from the Love Bugs stamp set and color them in with alcohol markers.
  • use Love Bugs Confetti Cuts to cut them all out.
  • cut an A2-size pattern paper and adhere to an A2-size notecard.
  • create the shaker well by die-cutting another pattern paper and some Neenah solar white card stock using the Bubbles Confetti Cuts die.
  • adhere some acetate sheet on the back of the yellow pattern paper and in-lay the Bubbles die cut.
  • add some foam adhesive to create the shaker well.
  • add some black, yellow and clear sequins as shaker elements.
  • adhere the focal panel on top to close the shaker.
  • add the focal images on the card with glue.
  • stamp the sentiment from the Valentine Sentiments stamp set on some black card stock with Versamark Ink. Sprinkle some white embossing powder and heat-set with heating tool.
  • fussy-cut the sentiment using precision snips and adhere to the card front.
  • finish the card design by adding some Stickles to the wings for added texture and interest.

Don’t you just love how cute these bugs are? I like that the Bubbles Confetti Cuts kind of look like honeycomb.

Stock Your Stash Challenge with Reverse Confetti

Hello my crafty friends, it’s a lazy Sunday on my side of the world! The skies are dark and dreary and it’s raining, boo! I figured today is the perfect time to create something extremely colorful and I am joining the Reverse Confetti’s Stock Your Stash Challenge and this month’s theme is “LOVE IS IN THE AIR“.

The Stock Your Stash Challenge link list will be open from the 1st of the month until noon CST on the 29th of the month. Click the “Play Along...” button on our Reverse Confetti’s sidebar to go current link list post. Reverse Confetti stamps and/or Confetti Cuts are required to win. This is a way we get to thank their customers for using their stamps. Anyone is welcome to play, though! You may enter as many times as you wish.Use #SYSChallenge when playing along with this challenge.There will be a random winner selected each month and that person will receive a $20 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store. The winner of challenge will be posted on the Reverse Confetti blog at the end of the month.

For my card below, I am showcasing the Large Circle of Hearts Confetti Cuts along with the Valentine Sentiments Stamp Set and the Stitched Daisies Cover Panel Confetti Cuts.

Here’s how I made this card:

  • Adhere each heart on top with foam dots for added dimension.
  • Flip the background panel and add some acetate sheet and foam adhesive to create the shaker well.
  • Add some bokeh sequins as the shaker element. [Designer tip” since the background is already colorful, you don’t need to add more colors to the design.]
  • Adhere the card panel on some top-folding A2-size notecard to close the shaker well.
  • Finish the card design by stamping the sentiment from the Valentine Sentiments Stamp Set with VersaMark ink. Sprinkle some white embossing powder and heat-set with heating tool. Fussy-cut the sentiment with precision snips and adhere on the focal panel.

I hope you like my project and will play along. The supplies are listed and linked below. Thanks for stopping by! Happy Sunday!
