Hello...


Hello! Long time no see... :) Summer is in full swing, and I have been trying to take advantage of the time I have here at home w/our kiddo.  What better time to also add in another room renovation or two? Lol... And I wonder why I can't finish things?!? :) 

I'm popping in to share a super CAS card I made using a bunch of stamps and dies from Reverse Confetti.  To create my card, I started by first using the Double Panel Circles Confetti Cuts on orange CS, then adhering it a piece of white CS.  The pineapple base from Pineapples Aplenty was stamped in orange/yellow ink and die cut with the Pineapples Aplenty Confetti Cuts.  I then went back and stamped the pineapple topper with light green ink.  Next, I used the Swirlies Confetti Cuts on a piece of coral CS, and adhered it to the back of the pineapple.


 One of the smaller flowers from Petals 'n Posies was stamped on white CS in a dark coral and black ink, then die cut with the coordinating Petals 'n Posies Confetti Cuts.  The sentiment from Bitty Banners was stamped in a light blue ink, then adhered to the larger layering Bitty Banner Confetti Cuts.  The flower and sentiment banner were then adhered to the die cut pineapple, then adhered to the circle strip with foam tape.  To finish up, the circle strip and pineapple were adhered to a kraft woodgrain card base, stickles were added to the flower, and I embellished with white glitter enamel dots.

RC Blog Hop - Hello...




Hello! It's the 8th of the month, and in addition to our monthly Reverse Confetti blog hop, Jen's also having a SUMMER SALE! :) Who doesn't love 20% off goodies??! :) 

To create my card today, I started by first cutting a piece of watercolor paper to 4 x 5.25" and then wetting it.  I then used Ken Oliver Color Burst powders (orchid, lime, and turquoise) to create my watercolor background.  While the watercolor paper was drying, I used the Hello Confetti Cuts on a piece of silver foil CS to create my focal sentiment.  I then stamped a piece of white CS with one of the pineapple bases from Pineapples Aplenty using purple ink, then die cutting it with the coordinating Pineapples Aplenty Confetti Cuts.


Once the pineapple was die cut, I then went back and stamped the pineapple stem with light green ink.  The pineapple was then adhered to the watercolor layer, and the focal sentiment was adhered on top.  To finish up, the main layer was attached to a light blue card base with foam tape, then I embellished with white enamel dots.


Jen asked us the other day what our "Top 5" RC products are, and lemme tell you, it was SO. HARD. to come up with five.  Lol, that's not entirely true, it was easy to think of *all* the different products I love, but narrowing it down to just five? Now *that* was the hard part! :) Here's what I came up with:  Peacock Pretties, Fabulous Flamingo, Pineapples Aplenty, Bear Hugs, S'More Love & Unicorn Wishes.  Okay, okay, so I managed to narrow it down to six, I consider that a success. :P

July SFYTT - Home of the Free...


Happy July!! It's the start of a new month, which means it's also time for a new Reverse Confetti sketch challenge.  I had a lot of fun with this month's sketch, and used it as the perfect base for my patriotic 4th of July card. :)

To create my card, I started by first die cutting a bunch of stars using the Seeing Stars Confetti Cuts on blue, gray, red and turquoise paper.  I then adhered a strip of light gray striped paper to a white card base before adhering the stars to the card front.  A strip of Maraschino Twine was added to the card front and tied with a bow.  Next, I die cut a large circle using the Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts on a piece of turquoise polka dot paper, and stamped it with one of the sentiments from Because of the Brave in Versafine black ink.



A banner flag was cut using the Stitched Flag Trio Confetti Cuts on a piece of blue textured CS, and then adhered behind the sentiment circle.  To finish up, the circle and flag die cuts were adherd to the card front using foam tape, then I embellished with red enamel dots.

You Are Totally Awesome


Hello! It's the first week of summer vacation here in MD, and it's always such an adjustment getting used to going from hustle and bustle of the school year to the slower pace of summer.  But it's a nice adjustment! :)

I'm popping in today to share a card I created using one of my favorite sentiment sets from Reverse Confetti, A Friend Like You.  To create my card, I started by lightly drawing pencil marks at the top and bottom of the card to create intersecting lines.  I then colored in the open spaces using Zig Clean Color Watercolor Markers.  Once the sections were completely dry, I then colored in the lines with a gray watercolor marker.



Once all the watercolored areas were dry, I trimmed the panel to 4 x 5.25 and added the white glitter strips.  The sentiment was then stamped in Versafine black ink before adhering the panel to a light gray card base with foam tape.



Have a great one!

W&W Share the Love w/Essentials by Ellen - You Are Wonderful



Hello! :) It's "Share the love" week over at Winnie & Walter, and this week, the DT has created projects using W&W products, along with the Totally Awesome stamp set and Brushstroke Wonderful die from Essentials by Ellen.

Today over on the W&W blog, they're hosting a Floral Challenge, and to create my card, I started by first stamping some of the larger images from Lola's Bouquet in black, gray and coral ink.  I then went back and filled in some of the open spaces with the smaller stamps in the set.  The stamped panel was then adhered to a light gray card base with foam tape.

 

I then cut a strip of light gray CS, and stamped it with one of the sentiments from Totally Awesome in Versafine black ink.  I used the Brushstroke Wonderful die on coral CS, and adhered it beneath the stamped sentiment.  To finish up, I adhered the sentiment strip to the card front with foam tape, then embellished with silver enamel dots.

Have a great one!

RC Blog Hop - Waving Hello



Hello! It's the 8th of the month, which means it's Reverse Confetti blog hop time *and* all the goodies we've been showcasing for the past few days are now available.  Wooooot! :)

To create my card, I started by first using the Scalloped Cover Panel Confetti Cuts on a piece of light teal cardstock, and then adhered the die cut to a kraft card base.  I then glued several of the negative die cut pieces to the card base, filling in some of the scallops.



Next, I used the Sand Dollar Confetti Cuts on a piece of white CS, and adhered the pieces together before adhering it to the card front with foam tape.  I then die cut a banner strip using the Stitched Flag Trio Confetti Cuts on white CS, and stamped it with one of the sentiments from Seaside before attaching it to the card front with foam tape.  To finish up, a coral ribbon and bow was added to the card base, Sugared Stickles were added to the center of the sand dollar, and I embellished with light teal 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!

Hello! It's the final day of sneak peeks for this month's Reverse Confetti release, and today we're showcasing cards/projects featuring the new Because of the Brave set.  This stamp set features a ton of *awesome* sentiments done in the fabulous RC signature style! ♥

To create my card, I started by first cutting off a portion of the blue By the Sea QCP , then adhering it to a light gray card base with foam tape.  I then cut a strip of white CS, and tucked it underneath the QCP.  Next, I used the Swirlies Confetti Cuts on white CS, then adhered the die cut to the card front.  I then die cut the stars from red CS and silver foil using the Seeing Stars Confetti Cuts then adhered them to the card base with foam tape.  



I used the Stitched Flag Trio Confetti Cuts on a piece of red CS, then stamped it with one of the sentiments from Because of the Brave.  The sentiment was heat set with white embossing powder then adhered to the card front. To finish up, I embellished with some uber fun red white and blue twine & silver glitter enamel dots.
