CardMaker Magazine Blog Hop - Let's Celebrate!


Hello! Reverse Confetti & CardMaker Magazine are teaming up today for a blog hop, and I'm here to share this bright little number! :) Hopefully you've reached my blog by way of Lisa Silver's blog (the blog hop started over on the CardMaker Magazine blog, so if you'd like to start at the beginning, please click ***here***.)

To create my card, I first started with a piece of 4.25 x 5.5 watercolor paper, and covered it with a light coating of water.  I then sprinkled the layer with Turquoise, Orange and Fuchsia Color Burst watercolor powders.  I tried to leave them alone to do their thing, but I'm a hoverer, so I dabbed the watercolor paper here and there with a wet brush to help speed things along, and used a paper towel to soak up the excess water/color in any areas that were getting muddled. 



Since I'm not the most patient person when it comes to watercolor, I grabbed my heat tool to help speed up the drying process.  Once the panel was dry, I stamped the feather image from Pretty Peacocks in Versamark ink, then heat set them with white embossing powder.  I then trimmed the layer on an angle, and adhered it to a light gray card base with foam tape.  The sentiment from Celebrations was stamped in Versamark ink onto orange textured CS, then heat embossed with white powder.  To finish up, I adhered the sentiment to the card front with foam tape, then embellished with silver enamel dots.

Kindness Matters... Thank You


Hello! I'm popping in to share a suuuuper CAS card that I created using one of my all-time favorite stamp sets from Reverse Confetti, Butterfly Dreams.  Love! 

To create my card, I started by first die cutting a piece of light gray card stock with the Big Stripes Cover Panel CC, and adhering it to a white card base.  I then stamped the largest butterfly from Butterfly Dreams in yellow ink onto white card stock.




The stamped butterfly image was then die cut using the coordinating Butterfly Dreams Confetti Cuts before being adhered to the card front with foam tape.  To finish up, I embellished with sparkly aqua enamel dots.






Have a great one!

Pretty Pink Posh May Release Blog Hop - Showers of Blessings



Hello! I'm so excited to be participating in today's Pretty Pink Posh May Release Blog Hop! Paulina is one of the sweetest people on the planet, so I couldn't help but jump at the chance to be a part of her hop when asked! :) 

To create my card, I started by first cutting a piece of watercolor paper down to 4 x 5.25", then added a watercolor wash on the background before zapping it with my heat tool.  Once it was dry, I added some splatters of a darker shade of the same watercolor, then set that aside to dry completely.  While I was waiting, I stamped the larger cloud outline from Rainy Days in Versafine ink, then stamped it with one of the happy faces.  Call me crazy, but you can't help but smile when looking at those cheery clouds, they are just too cute! :) After I finished stamping the three clouds and faces, I die cut the images using the Rainy Days dies.  Next, I stamped the bird image from Birdie Notes in Versafine ink and heat embossed it with clear powder before coloring it in with Zig Clean Color Markers.  


While the bird was drying, I stamped the umbrella image in a light lime green (though it looks more yellow in my pic), and die cut the pieces using their coordinating dies before adhering the pieces together.  The Stitched Essentials 1 die was then used to cut out a yellow polka dot tag.  Next, the sentiment was stamped in black ink (love that font!), and an aqua satin ribbon/bow was adhered to the top of the layer.  The watercolor panel was then adhered to a kraft woodgrain card base with foam tape.  Once the bird image was dry, I glued the 4mm Strawberry Burst Sequins to her chest to give it some sparkle.  I then began assembling the pieces and adhering them as shown.  To finish up, I embellished with enamel dots and 6mm Clear Droplets

RC Blog Hop - Hip Hip Hooray




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.  Woohoo! 

To create my card, I started by first stamping one of the balloons from Boxes 'N Balloons in teal ink onto white CS, then cutting it out with the coordinating Boxes 'N Balloons Confetti Cuts.  I then die cut a scallop circle from Circles 'N Scallops on white CS, and used a pen to draw my balloon string.  Next, I stamped the larger bow in coral ink, and die cut it before adhering it to the balloon.  



I then covered the card base with a piece of polka dot patterned paper, and trimmed off the edge of the scallop circle before adhering it to the card base with foam tape.  The balloon and bow were then adhered to the scallop circle with foam tape.  I used the Flowers For Mom Confetti Cuts on light gray cardstock, then stamped it with the sentiment in black ink.  Three stars were stamped and die cut using the You Are a Star stamp set and coordinating You Are a Star Confetti Cuts.  To finish up, I adhered the sentiment strip to the card front and added the stars to the card base.




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!

Countdown to Confetti - Hooray for You!


Hello! It's the second day of Reverse Confetti sneak peeks! For my card today, I'm featuring the new Candles 'n Confetti stamp set and coordinating Confetti Cuts.  To create my card, I started by first die cutting a bunch of circles using the Detailed Circles Confetti Cuts on green, coral and purple CS.  I then die cut a tag using the Topped Off Tag Confetti Cuts on white CS, then die cutting a topper using the Top o' the Tag Confetti Cuts on coral CS.  I then adhered the tag pieces together, then die cut some green banners using the Linked Garland Confetti Cuts on green CS and adhering them to the tag front.  Next, I stamped the various elements from Candles 'n Confetti to create my cake, then cut them out with the coordinating Candles 'n Confetti Cuts



The cake was assembled, then adhered to the tag front with foam tape before covering the candles with a silver glitter pen.  Jute twine was tied in a double bow, then glued to the tag.  I fiddled with the arrangement of the circles that had been die cut, then adhered them to a kraft woodgrain card base when I was happy with their placement.  The stamped tag was then adhered to the card front with foam tape.  To finish up, I stamped the sentiment from Celebrations onto a piece of white CS that had been die cut with the Stitched Flag Trio Confetti Cuts, adhered it to the card front with pop dots, then added clear gems for interest.

Countdown to Confetti: You Lift Me Up


Hello! It's the 5th of the month, and that means it's time for another round of Reverse Confetti sneak peeks! Not only is there the usual awesomeness you've come to expect from RC each release, but they're celebrating their THIRD birthday!! :) Time certainly flies, and what an honor it is to have been a part of the RC family since the beginning! :) 

For my card today, I'm featuring the new Lift Me Up stamp set and coordinating Confetti Cuts.  To create my card, I started by first using the Big Stripes Cover Panel die on a piece of white CS, then adhering it to a white card base for subtle texture.  (Side note, I LOVE this die! It has a circle cutout in the middle, which you can use as a focal point, or you can cover it to change up the look!) Next, I die cut light gray CS with the Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts, then topped it with a circle that was die cut from the Party Time Quick Card Panel using the new Detailed Circles Confetti Cuts.  



I then stamped several images from Lift Me Up in Versafine ink and heat set them with clear embossing powder before coloring them with Zig Clean Color markers and a glitter pen.  While the images were drying, I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of light gray CS, then adhered a small strip of yellow CS to one end.  The sentiment was then adhered to the card front with pop dots.  Once the images were dry, they were die cut using the Lift Me Up Confetti Cuts and adhered to the card base with foam tape.  To finish up, I embellished with light aqua sparkly enamel dots.

May SFYTT - You Are One of a Kind


Hello! It's the 1st of the month, which means it's time for a new Reverse Confetti sketch... This month's sketch turned out to be one of my favorites to date. :) Can you believe it's already MAY?? In just 12 days our kiddo will be turning 11.  Ugh, I can't even! She just lost her last two baby teeth this week, and as she's our one and only, it looks like the tooth fairy won't be visiting our house anymore. :/ Lol, I know it's a silly thing to be sad about, but change is hard, and I'm not ready to accept that my little girl is growing up so fast.  *sigh* Moving on to happier things... :)

To create my card, I started by first cutting two strips of coral CS and adhering them to the card front.  I then cut off the top and bottom of the green So Very Spring Quick Card Panels to create a square shape, then adhered it to the card front with foam tape.  Next, I stamped one of the larger butterflies from Butterfly Dreams in coral ink onto white CS, then cut it out with the coordinating Butterfly Dreams Confetti Cuts.



Once the butterfly image was die cut, I then adhered it to the card front with pop dots.  Next, I die cut a banner shape using the Flowers for Mom Confetti Cuts on aqua CS, then stamped it with one of the sentiments from A Friend Like You.  To finish up, the sentiment strip was adhered to the card front with pop dots and I embellished with sparkly aqua enamel dots.
