Hello! I don't know about you, but I love a great sale! :) This weekend our fearless leader, Jen del Muro, is celebrating her birthday with a 20% off sale over at Reverse Confetti... It's a great time to stock up on card stocks, inks, stamps, you name it. :)


I'm also posting a card today that features some of the goodies from the latest release.  I love these ginormous strawberries, they are absolutely darling! To create my card, I started with a Cloud White card base and topped it with a piece of patterned paper from the Under the Umbrella paper pad.  I then die cut a piece of Iced Aqua card stock using the Thanks Square Confetti Cuts and adhered it to the card base.



Next, I stamped two strawberries from Berry Sweet using Versamark and Black ink onto Lime Green and Salsa card stocks, and cut them out using the coordinating Berry Sweet Confetti Cuts. One of the sentiments from Berry Sweet was stamped in black ink onto a strip of white card stock, and trimmed into a flag shape.  To finish up, the berries and sentiment were secured to the card front, and I embellished with green enamel dots.







Have a great one!

RC Blog Hop - Hello



Hello! It's the 8th of the month, which means it's Reverse Confetti blog hop time, and this month we're creating cards using "Color Me Mine" as our theme. All the cards you'll see along the hop today will be created with using our favorite color combos.   I can't wait to pop through the list and see what the other ladies on the DT have come up with today. :) One of my favorite color combos is black, navy, aqua and gray, and Reverse Confetti's Midnight Black, Navy, Iced Aqua and Stone cardstocks and ink work perfectly together!

To create my card, I started by first cutting a Stone card base and adhering a piece of patterned paper from the Every Little Bit paper pad to the top.  I then used the Hello Square Confetti Cuts on Stone and Iced Aqua cardstock, and adhered the gray die cut to the card front before filling in the base with the aqua strips.



I then stamped the flower and leaf images from Blooms 'n Buds in gray and black ink, and cut them out with the coordinating Blooms 'n Buds Confetti Cuts.  Next, I used the Wheat Confetti Cuts on Iced Aqua cardstock, and adhered it behind the flower and leaf die cuts.  The arrangement was then adhered to the card front with foam tape.  To finish up, I embellished with black 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!

Reverse Confetti Blog Hop - Party Like There's No Tomorrow



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! Yaaas! :) 

To create my card, I started by first die cutting a piece of Stone card stock using the Squared Off Cover Panel Confetti Cuts, and adhering a piece of 6x6 Under the Umbrella patterned paper behind it.  I then turned the die cut on an angle and adhered it to a Cloud White card base.  Next, I cut two 1/4" strips of Baby Blue card stock and adhered them to the card front above and below the die cut.


The dinosaur and leaf images from No Tomorrow were stamped in Versafine ink onto watercolor paper before heat setting with clear embossing powder.  The images were then die cut using the No Tomorrow Confetti Cuts and colored with watercolor markers.  Once the images were dry, they were adhered to the card front using foam tape.  To finish up, the sentiment was stamped in Midnight ink onto the smallest Pierced Round Top Layers Confetti Cuts, adhered to the card front with foam tape, then black enamel embellishments were added for extra interest.

RC Sneak Peek Day 3 - Mahalo


Hello! It's the 3rd day of sneak peeks for the Reverse Confetti July Release, and today I'm sharing this sweet card created with the new Mahalo stamp set & coordinating dies.

To create my card, I started by first die cutting a sunburst background using Cloud and Buttercup card stocks.  I then adhered the white sunburst background to a Bumblebee Yellow card base and filled in some of the rays using the Buttercup die cut pieces.  Next, I stamped the coconut drink outline image from Mahalo in Midnight ink onto Cloud card stock, then die cut using the coordinating Mahalo Confetti Cuts dies.



I wanted the image to have a vintage/retro feel, so when I was inking up the coconut solid image with Dark Roast ink, I didn't thoroughly cover the image with ink (and also used the sharp end of my bone folder to scrape some little notches into the inked surface).  I then stamped the umbrella using Magenta ink, and the straw using Abyss ink.  To finish up, I stamped and die cut the sentiment from Mahalo in Midnight, adhered the image to the card base with foam tape and added some enamel dots for interest.

RC Sneak Peek Day 2 - Hope Your Day is Magical


Hello! It's the 2nd day of sneak peeks for the Reverse Confetti July Release, and today I'm sharing this sweet card created with the new Magical Day stamp set & coordinating dies, the 6x6 Under the Umbrella paper pad, and the Pierced Round Top Layers Confetti Cuts.

To create my card, I started by first adhering a piece of floral Under the Umbrella patterned paper to a Stone card base.  Next, I stamped the princess, dragon and wand images from Magical Day in Versamark ink onto watercolor paper, then heat set the images with clear embossing powder.  Once the images were heat set, they were then colored with Zig Clean Color markers and set aside to dry.



While the images were drying, I die cut a rainbow and clouds using the Weather it Together set, adhered them together and attached them to the card front.  A piece of Cloud white card stock was then die cut using the Pierced Round Top Layers Confetti Cuts, then stamped with one of the sentiments from Magical Day.  The princess and wand images were adhered to the white panel, which was then adhered to the card front with foam tape.  To finish up, I adhered the dragon to the card base and embellished with red enamel dots.

W&W June Release - The World is a Better Place...



Hello! It's the third day of Winnie & Walter June Release previews, and on my blog today is this cheery birthday card. :)

I created this card by first spraying the Scenery: Spotty Creative Screenings with yellow color mist, then laying a piece of white cardstock on top.  Once dry, the cardstock was adhered to a white card base.  Next, I used the largest die from the Big Balloon Cutaways on light gray cardstock.  Next, sentiments from Party On with Evelin T Designs and Happy Birthday to You were stamped in black ink onto the card front.  

 

I then adhered the negative balloon die cut to the card base using foam tape.  The In a Word: Birthday Cutaway was used on aqua cardstock, and the die cut was attached to the balloon die cut.  To finish up, I embellished with enamel dots and added a yellow die cut bow to the balloon.
