Winnie & Walter: Big Bang Confetti Cutaways



Hello! I'm back again with another day of Winnie & Walter yumminess! :) I am a huge fan of their V for cheVron set, especially when it's paired with distress inks and water.  It just makes me happy. :)

To create my card today, I started with a piece of white CS, and stamped the solid chevron image three times using purple, green and blue distress inks misted with water.  While the image was drying, I die cut three stars using the new Big Bang Confetti Cutaways on silver glitter CS.  


I then stamped the sentiment from Sugar Rush in dark gray ink before adhering the stars with pop dots.  To finish up, I adhered the white CS panel to the card base using pop dots.

Have a great one!

Supplies:
Stamps - Sugar Rush, V for cheVron
Paper - SSS Fog, PTI Stamper's Select White
Ink - Distress Ink, Versafine Gray
Miscellaneous - Big Bang Confetti Cutaways

Winnie & Walter: Essentials - Katharine & In a Word Cutaways



Hello! I'm back again with another card I created with some of the new dies released from Winnie & Walter's latest release.  

To create my card, I started with a white woodgrain card base, and adhered a strip of turquoise polka dot patterned paper to the front.  I then die cut the word love using the In a Word Cutaways on a piece of light gray CS before cutting a mat with the smaller rectangle from the Essentials; Katharine Cutaways.


I used two different colored inks on a piece of white CS, then adhered it behind the love cutout.  The you was then stamped from the Big, the Bold and Party on a piece of white CS which had been die cut with the small banner die.  Next, I adhered the gray mat layer to the card base using pop dots.  To finish up, I embellished with silver enamel dots.

Have a great one!

Just For You!


Hello! With Valentine's Day in the rear view mirror, it's time to look forward to St. Patrick's Day! :) I created this festive bag featuring a bunch of Reverse Confetti & Whisker Graphics goodies...

I started by die cutting some hearts from a Green Polka Dot Middy Bitty Bag, as well as some white CS, and adhered them together (to help keep the background bag from showing through).  I then used some Green Solid Divine Twine to outline each of the hearts and stem.  Next, I adhered all the hearts together using a pop dot as the center, then covering it with a large, clear gem.  The clover and stem were then adhered to a Metallic Gold Horizontal Stripe Middy Bitty Bag with pop dots.



I then stamped the Just For You image from Reverse Confetti's Roundabout in versamark before heat embossing with gold powder.  I then cut it out using the largest circle from Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts.  Next, I die cut a green scallop using the largest Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts, and adhered the image to the top using pop dots.  I then used a white pigment marker to add a polka dot border.  To finish up, I wrapped the bag with some Gold Metallic Divine Twine, then adhered the sentiment to the bag.


 

Have a great one!

Winnie & Walter: The Big, the Bold Cutaways



Hello! Earlier in the month Winnie & Walter released a bunch of fabulous cutaways (dies) during their last release, and this week we're spending a little extra time showcasing them! :)

To create my card today, I used the new the Big, the Bold and Party Cutaways to die cut the word celebrate in mint and white.  I adhered several white die cuts together, then added the mint die cut on top before adhering them to a piece of yellow patterned paper which has been die cut with the smaller Essentials: Katherine Cutaways rectangle die.  


Next, I die cut a piece of gray CS using the larger Essentials: Katherine Cutaways rectangle die, and adhered it to a white card base.  The yellow patterned paper was then adhered to the card front with pop dots.  The your and day sentiments from the Big, the Bold and Party were stamped in gray ink onto white CS.  The ends of the white CS strip were trimmed in a banner shape, then adhered to the card front.  To finish up, I embellished with silver enamel dots.

Have a great one!

Today Is Your Day


Hello! I'm popping in to share a sweet little tag I made using the Branching Out set from the Alley Way Stamps.  I love the little bunny in the set, and I thought it would be fun to create a little scene where he/she was holding a "magic wand" and sprinkling the sentiment with sparkles.

To create my tag, I started with a piece of white CS, which was die cut into a tag shape.  I then cut a strip of light green CS into a grassy mound shape and temporarily adhered it to the tag.  The sentiment was then stamped in light gray ink.  I stamped the bunny image with Stazon gray ink, and watercolored it.  


While the bunny was drying, I stamped the wand in pink (which is really the birdhouse hanger), and the globe in yellow (fuzzy ball image) onto the tag base.  I then used one of the little dots from the cluster and stamped it several times in yellow.  To add a little sparkle, the globe and dots were covered with Stickles.  The bunny was then adhered to the tag with pop dots before embellishing with some of my favorite silver metallic twine.


Have a great one!

February SFYTT - Love


Hello! I hope you've been having a wonderful President's Day weekend! I know Valentine's Day has come and gone, but I have a love-themed card to share today.  I've used non-traditional colors, so I figure this card can pretty much be used during any point in the year. :)

I created this card using this month's Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT) from Reverse Confetti and some pretty patterned papers! By using patterned papers and die cuts to create this card, it really came together quickly.  And as a suuuuper slow stamper, making a card from start to finish in less than an hour is a huge accomplishment. Lol!



I started with some gray and white patterned feather paper, and adhered it to a white card base.  I then cut a strip of black and white chunky striped paper, and banner cut one end.  Next, I die cut two Heart Love Pretty Panel Confetti Cuts using silver glitter CS and black CS, then adhered them together.  The die cuts were then adhered to a piece of aqua/mint patterned paper using pop dots.  The black and white strip I cut earlier was then adhered to the back of the aqua/mint layer, and then attached to the card front with pop dots.  To finish up, I embellished with teal enamel dots.



Want to play along with us this month? All you need to do is create a card based on the sketch below, and link it up to the post HERE on the Reverse Confetti blog by noon CST on the 27th... Easy peasy! :)


Have a great one!

Paper - DCWV Glitter CS, Amy Tangerine Patterned Papers, PTI Basic Black, PTI Stamper's Select White

It's O"fish"al...


Hello! I was a little preoccupied earlier this evening when I found one of my Etsy shop invitation designs had been stolen and posted on another web site for sale, but thankfully, it's been resolved! :) So, now that I can relax a little (hehe), I wanted to pop in and share a cute little punny card I made with one of Reverse Confetti's new release sets.  The Sugary Sweet Sentiments set was created to pair up perfectly with various types of candy, but I just love this little fish from Happy Harbor!

To create my card, I started with the current CAS(E) this Sketch #110 sketch for my general layout, then embossed a lime green card base with stars.  I then stamped the fish image from Happy Harbor in teal ink onto white CS before die cutting it into a circle shape.  The die cut was then cut to fit the card base and secured with pop dots.  The fish images were then covered with stickles for a little added sparkle.



I then used portions of two of the sentiments from Sugary Sweet Sentiments to create a custom greeting.  They were stamped in versamark, then heat embossed in white on gray CS.  The end was then trimmed in a banner shape, and secured to the card front with pop dots.  To finish up, I embellished with teal enamel dots.

 

Have a great one!
