RC Blog Hop - Hello, My Friend



Hello! While Mondays are normally not fun (who likes to say goodbye to the weekend??), today is an exception... Release day is finally here and all the sets and dies that we've been previewing are now available. :) I need to head on over myself to the RC store and pick up some additional sets of the Hoppin Dots Quick Card Panels before they sell out! 

To create my card today, I started by first using the rounded Edger Confetti Cuts on the heart Hoppin Dots QCP before adhering the panel to a kraft card base.  One of the sentiments from A Friend Like You was then stamped in Versamark ink onto yellow CS and embossed with white embossing powder.  



I then used the larger Swirlies Confetti Cuts on white CS, and adhered the circle image to the card front.  Three flowers and centers were stamped onto white CS using the Garden Bunch stamp set, then die cut with the coordinating Garden Bunch Confetti Cuts.  Several "leaves" were cut using the smaller flower clusters from the Flower Wrap Confetti Cuts.  To finish up, all my die cut pieces were adhered to the card front, the sentiment was adhered with foam tape, and then I embellished with silver enamel dots.



  
  
  

  

I hope you've enjoyed hopping with us today. Be sure and hop with us on the 8th of every month for more Reverse Confetti inspiration! 

Here's the full list of hop participants:


Have a great one!

Countdown to Confetti: Faith Can Move Mountains


Hello! It's the final day of previews for this month's Reverse Confetti release, and today we're featuring The Lord's Strength, which is full of encouraging sentiments! ♥ To create my card, I started by cutting 3/4" off a standard A2 white card base, then adhering one of the Hoppin Dots Quick Card Panels over the edge using foam tape.  

I then used the new Pretty Panels: Bold Line on white and yellow CS, and adhered them to a base I created using the rectangle from the Class Act Confetti Cuts die set.  I then stamped one of the sentiments from The Lord's Strength in Versamark ink before heat setting with gold embossing powder.



Next, I adhered the sentiment panel to the card front using foam tape.  I then used the flower clusters from the Flower Wrap Confetti Cuts on white CS, and adhered the die cuts to the yellow patterned layer.  To finish up, I embellished with gold enamel dots.  This card came together so quickly, but I really like how it turned out. :)

Countdown to Confetti: Some Bunny Loves You


Hello! It's the second day of previews for this month's Reverse Confetti release, and today's sneak peek features more uber adorable animal illustrations from my fave illustrator, Dawn Machell.  I just love her style! ♥ Seriously, I want to live in her little illustrated world.  How fun would that be?? :)

To create my card, I started by first adhering a piece of polka dot patterned paper to a medium gray card base.  I then die cut a large circle from a piece of light gray CS, and adhered it to the card front using foam tape.  Next, I stamped the bunny, flowers, and butterfly images from Hippity Hoppity in Versafine ink before heat setting them with clear embossing powder.  The images were then colored with Zig Clean Color markers and set aside to dry.



Once the images were dry, I die cut them out using the Hippity Hoppity Confetti Cuts and adhered them inside the circle to create my little scene.  I also die cut a sun using the smaller Swirlies Confetti Cuts on yellow CS and adhered it inside the circle cutout.  The sentiment was then stamped on light pink CS in black ink and adhered to the card front.  To finish up, I added Sprinkled Sugar Stickles to the flower centers, butterflies, and bunny after adhering some grass behind the sentiment.

Countdown to Confetti - I Miss Your Face


Hello!  It's the 5th of the month, and that means it's time for another round of Reverse Confetti sneak peeks! :) For my card today, I'm featuring the new A Friend Like You, Garden Bunch (and coordinating Confetti Cuts), and Flower Wrap Confetti Cuts.

To create my card, I started by cutting a strip off the bottom of the teal Hoppin' Dots QCP and adhering both pieces to a white card base using foam tape.  I then stamped one of the sentiments from A Friend Like You in Versamark ink, then heat set it with white embossing powder before adhering it to the card front with foam tape.




To create the flower bouquet, I used the new Flower Wrap Confetti Cuts along with the new Garden Bunch stamp set.  The Flower Wrap CC die was used on a piece of gray polka dot paper, then folded and secured with adhesive.  I then wrapped a piece of light pink twine around the base of the polka dot paper, and added a mini white heart tag before securing with a bow.  Several of the flower images from Garden Bunch were stamped in various shades of pink, yellow and orange ink before being cut out with their coordinating Garden Bunch Confetti Cuts.  To finish up, I assembled the bouquet, adhered it to the card front, then embellished with pink enamel dots.

Sending Hugs & Prayers


Hello! I'm participating in a blog hop today to spread some love and support for my friend and fellow crafter, Ann Cox.  Her husband recently went to the hospital to undergo some tests, and ended up having triple bypass surgery.  Thankfully that went well and he's now in the process of recovering from his surgery, though there will be other potential procedures down the road.  Very heavy stuff to be dealing with when you're so young! My thoughts and prayers are with you guys every day! ♥♥♥

Hopefully you've reached my blog by way of Lynnette's blog.  If you'd like to start the hop at the beginning, please click **here**.



Ann's family has set up a GoFundMe page to help with medical expenses as a result of the surgery, and to help with other medical procedures that will be coming up.  No donation is required to be entered to win one of the sponsored prizes, though donors will receive an extra entry.

Several sponsors have offered up prizes for today's blog hop... To be entered to win one of the main prizes, all you have to do is leave a comment on the posts as you hop along.  Winners will be posted on Ashley's blog on Thursday, February 11th.

W&W Belated Birthday Bash Color Challenge



Hello! As part of Winnie & Walter's 2nd birthday celebration, I'm so excited to be hosting a challenge today over on the W&W blog.  We have been bogged down with snow and its aftermath (30" last weekend), and I am so over it. Lol! BRING ON SPRING! My challenge is to create a card incorporating coral, lime/chartreuse and aqua/light turquoise.  


To create my card, I started by first stamping some of the flowers and leaves from In Bloom: Addie's Garden and In Bloom: Anna's Flora with Versafine ink, then heat embossing with white embossing powder.  I then colored the images with my Zig Clean Color watercolor markers, and set the panel aside to dry.




While I was waiting for the panel to dry, I used the In a Word: Hi Cutaway on white and coral CS.  I adhered three white Hi die cuts together to create a thicker base layer, then topped them offset with the coral die cut.  Once the main panel was dry, I cut a strip of green CS and adhered it to the bottom of the panel.  I then adhered the watercolor panel to a white card base using foam tape, and finished up by attaching the large die cut to the card front.

Want to play along with us? All you have to do is create a card/project using the colors above and link it up to my post on the W&W blog here.  I'd love to see what you come up with! :)



Have a great one!

February SFYTT - Easter Greetings


Hello! It's the 1st of the month, which means it's time for a new Reverse Confetti Sketch challenge (SFYTT).  Today is also a banner day because all the kiddos in our county are FINALLY returning to school for the first time since January 21st.  Woot!! :) I love spending time with my kiddo, but I'd be lying if I didn't also admit to missing the normalcy and routine of a typical school week. Lol

For my card today, I started by slightly trimming down the ends of the striped Weather or Dot QCP, then adhering it to a piece of coral textured CS which had been cut with banner ends.  I then stamped one of the sentiments from Carton Cuties in the center of the panel using Versafine black ink.  The stamped panel was then adhered to a white woodgrain card base using foam tape.




Next, I stamped four bunny images from Carton Cuties using Versafine ink, then heat set the images with clear embossing powder before coloring with Zig Clean Color markers.  While the images were drying, I die cut four light coral hearts using the Love Note CCs, and topped them with the largest outline heart die cuts from the Stamped Note CCs.  Once the stamped images were dry, I die cut them out using the Carton Cuties CCs, and secured them to the hearts using foam tape.  To finish up, I adhered the hearts around sentiment with foam tape.
