Rain or Shine...


Hello! I'm popping in to share a card I created using some of my favorite products from Reverse Confetti & Whisker Graphics.

To create my card, I started by die cutting a heart shape from two pieces of white CS to create my card base.  I then die cut a heart shape from a Notebook Paper Middy Bitty Bag.  Next, I stamped the sentiment from Weather It Together in Versafine ink.  I then stamped the cloud image in gray ink, then die cut it out with the coordinating Weather It Together Confetti Cuts.  The smaller hearts and puddle were then stamped in fuchsia and teal ink.



I then stamped the umbrella image in Versafine ink before heat embossing it with clear powder.  The image was then colored with watercolor paints.  While the image was drying, I stamped one of the alligator images from Later Alligator in Versafine ink onto green CS.  Once the ink was dry, I cut it out with the coordinating Later Alligator Confetti Cuts.  I colored in his teeth, some of his stomach squares and the ridges on his back with a white gel pen.  I then assembled all the pieces on the card front and adhered them with pop dots.  To finish up, I embellished with silver enamel dots, stickles and Solid Light Pink Divine Twine.

Freshly Made Sketches 200th Sketch - Time to Chomp on Some Birthday Cake


Hello! Freshly Made Sketches is celebrating their 200th sketch milestone, and Reverse Confetti (along with a ton of fab companies!) is sponsoring today's sketch. :)


To create my card today, I started by cutting a piece of gray patterned paper and adhered it to the front of a white card base.  I then stamped one of the gator images from Later Alligator onto green CS, then cut it out with the coordinating Later Alligator Confetti Cuts.  I then stamped the cake image from the set in Versafine ink, then colored it with watercolors.  While it was drying, I die cut a rainbow using the Weather It Together Confetti Cuts.  



Next, I used the Woodgrain Confetti Cuts on a piece of white CS. then adhered it to the large polka dot card from the Weather or Dot Quick Card Panels.  I then adhered the panel to the card base with pop dots.  The sentiment was stamped on a strip of mint CS, then adhered to the card front after trimming one end in a banner shape.  I die cut a bunch of hearts using the Weather It Together Confetti Cuts, and randomly sprinkled them onto the card front, adhering them where they fell.  The alligator was then adhered to the card front, and its teeth and the ridges on its back were colored with a white gel pen.  To finish up, I adhered the rainbow and cake to the card front.

I then stamped the sentiment in Versafine ink onto a piece of mint CS, then trimmed the ends in a banner shape.  To finish up, I adhered the sentiment strip to the card front with pop dots and embellished with silver enamel dots.

My Heart is With You & A SALE!


Hello! I'm popping in to share a card I created using some of my favorite goodies from the latest Reverse Confetti release. The globe die and coordinating sentiment stamp set are perfect for so many different types of cards! :)

To create my card, I started by creating a watercolor background in yellow, orange and pink on a piece of white CS, then setting it aside to dry.  I then die cut the globe using the Globe Confetti Cuts on white and pink CS.  Once the watercolor background was dry, I then stamped the sentiment from My World in Versamark ink before heat setting with white embossing powder.



I used watered down pink distress ink and yellow shimmer spray to splatter the painted piece.  The watercolored layer was then adhered to a white card base once everything was dry.  To finish up, the globe die cut pieces were then adhered to the card front, and I embellished with hot pink enamel dots.

RC Blog Hop - Summer ABC



Hello! It's the 8th of the month, which means it's Reverse Confetti blog hop time, and today we'll be featuring items with a "Summer ABC" theme!

The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog, and you should have made it here from Veraa’s blog. (If you'd like to start at the beginning of the hop, please click here.)


First things first, I also wanted to take a moment to share the winner of the PARTY HATS set from my August 1st post... The set goes toooooooooo...



Michelle, when  you have a moment, please email me with your contact information at inglishrea [at} yahoo [dot] com.

For my projects today, I created a fun thank you card using one of the Weather or Dot Quick Card Panels to make my sunburst, as well as a Project Life page.  To start, I first cut apart the green and teal triangle QCP, and layered the pieces onto mint CS (the white pieces are the backs of the QCP).  I then die cut the CS bits and pieces with a circle die, then adhered the die cut to a light gray card base.  



The focal sentiment was then die cut using the Fancy Words Confetti Cuts on a piece of white CS.  The remainder of the sentiment from Fancy Words Coordinates was stamped in teal ink onto a white strip of CS, and adhered to the card base.  To finish up, I adhered the die cut words to the card front and embellished with silver enamel dots.

Next up, I created a Project Life layout to document some of the time we spent at Caladesi Island State Park in Florida a couple of summers back.  What a beautiful place! The sun was really intense that day, but we really enjoyed the time we spent there.


A little watercolor, some die cuts and blended distress inks made these 3x4 cards come together SO quickly!

Here's a close up of the cards I created...

You Make Me Smile


Hello! I'm popping in to share a card I created using one of the new sets from the Alley Way Stamps August release, Penguins on Parade.

To create my card, I started with a piece of hexagon patterned paper, and die cut a circle from the center.  A piece of polka dot patterned paper was adhered to a white card base, then the die cut patterned paper was adhered on top with pop dots.  Next, I stamped the penguin image, cat ears and tail from Penguins on Parade, then colored them in with watercolor pencils.  


I then stamped the bird feather image in the set to create the flower, and colored it with watercolor pencils.  The sentiment from Speak Easy was stamped in Versafine ink onto a piece of gray patterned paper, trimmed with a banner end and adhered to the card front.  Next, I fussy cut the cat and flower, adhered them together and drew on whiskers.  To finish up, I adhered the cat to the card base with pop dots, embellished with green enamel dots and added some Winks of Stella to the flower.


 

Have a great one!

Hello


Hi, everyone! I'm sharing a card today that I created using a couple of my favorite sets from Winnie & Walter, V for cheVron and the Big, the Bold and Happy.

To create my card, I started with a piece of white CS and offset stamped the solid chevron from V for cheVron in a variety of inks.  Once the ink had dried, I then went back and stamped one of the key words from the Big, the Bold and Happy in versafine black ink.



The stamped image layer was then adhered to a light gray card base with pop dots.  To finish up, I embellished with some sparkly, clear sequins.  Quick and easy, but oh so pretty. :)

Have a great one!

August SFYTT - So Happy For You & a Giveaway!


Hello! I created this card using this month's Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT) from Reverse Confetti, as well as a couple different stamp sets and dies.

To create my card, I started by stamping one of the images from Party Hats in light pink, coral and yellow-orange ink onto a piece of white CS.  I then flicked yellow shimmering mist onto the background I created before cutting the panel in two, then adhered it to a white card base with pop dots once dry.  


Next, I used the rectangle die from the Posted Note Confetti Cuts on a piece of white CS, then embossed it with the Woodgrain Confetti Cuts.  I then stamped one of the sentiments from Posted Note Sentiments in versamark ink, then heat embossed with gold powder.  Some additional pieces from the Posted Note Confetti Cuts were then cut from gold foil, then adhered to the woodgrain panel.  To finish up, I adhered the die cut to the card front with pop dots, then embellished with clear sequins.
