Hello ‘Fetti Fans! For those of you that had a long weekend, I hope you enjoyed the extra time that could be spent and cherished with family and friends. Here in the del Muro household, we definitely had a great relaxing weekend. Part of the weekend was spent prepping for my daughter’s upcoming birthday party. I always say that I am not a theme person, but the last few years I have really gotten into preparing my kid’s parties. I don’t do anything too crazy, but I definitely try to put a personal touch on it. This year’s “theme” is a splash party. I’ve been working a little here and there all weekend with the HAPPY HARBOR set making cupcake toppers and then some. I can’t wait to show you the finished product! Sorry for the tease, but it’s just not quite ready yet!
What is ready is my card for TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY using PEACOCK PRETTIES…
I have really been wanting to do a few things with this set and stamping the feathers in just plain ol’ black is one of them. I’ve been drawn to stamping them in color because peacocks are so beautiful and colorful, but stamping them in black and making the rest of the card in color makes them stand out a little more. The feather in this set is substantial enough to be a large focal image. But, by stamping and cutting two, I basically made them into embellishments for the feather eye and sentiment panel.
I had to reach for the gold sequins to play off the rest of the color palette. The aqua sequins are adorned with charcoal sequins to give a little extra, yet understated bling.
HELLO FRIEND CARD

TGIF, ‘Fetti Fans! What a week it’s been! Fortunately, I found some stress relief time in the studio. I’ll be showing you my creations later, as today as all about taking a look back on what the CONFETTI CREW has created this week.
All these HAPPY HARBOR cards make me smile!
Trendy peacock feathers took center stage with these PEACOCK PRETTIES cards…
I have one more to share from, Val, too. Technically, this is from last week, but I didn’t get a chance to link it since she posted Saturday. All I can say is WOW, this is just the kind of card I LIKE YOU was made for!

Happy Thursday, ‘Fetti Fans!
I can imagine that you are all busy lil’ bees this time of year. We’re wrapping up school with the kiddos, prepping for summer and looking forward to a few things here at REVERSE CONFETTI. One of those things is SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY. If you were a follower of my personal blog, iheart2stamp.com (update on that below), you are familiar with SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY or SFYTT.
Well, sadly iheart2stamp.com is currently in blogosphere heaven. I’m not a technical person, but I have been told that it was not updated properly (oops!) and no longer supported the version of php that I was using. Translation: it went kaput. I had, for the most part, stopped blogging there; however, we (<–meaning hubby) is trying to restore the older posts so that they can be accessed. SFYTT was a big part of my blogging adventures there and I look forward to continuing with those fun sketches here on the Reverse Confetti blog.
You may have noticed the badge on the sidebar, but if not I am here to tell you today that SFYTT will be back on JUNE 1st!
Some details about the Reverse Confetti version of SFYTT:
There will be a new sketch each month. The first one will be posted on June 1st.
The sketch link list will be open from the 1st until noon CST on the 14th. The sketch will be posted in the sidebar and you will be able to click on it to get to that month’s SFYTT post with the link list.
Reverse Confetti stamps must take center stage in your creation to be eligible to be the SFYTT winner.
We will be adding this requirement after the first of the year. For now, anything goes!
You may enter as many times as you wish.
There will be a winner each month and that person will receive ALL OF THE STAMP SETS for the next release and be invited to share their creations during our sneak peeks and hop! The winner of SFYTT will be posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 15th of each month.
Be ready to play along June 1st!

Greetings ‘Fetti Friends and Fans!
I’d first like to take a moment to say that our hearts go out to all of those affected by the tornadoes in Texas last week and in Oklahoma yesterday. I grabbed this sign on Facebook yesterday and wanted to share it here…
. . . . .
It’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY, where I get to share a bit of inspiration using REVERSE CONFETTI stamps. This week, I’m getting inky with the HAPPY HARBOR set. This first card has lots of layers and elements…
Watermarked sand dollar image…
Compass rose and sentiment combo…
This second card follows the same color scheme, but is a little more tame when it comes to layers and elements…
It’s hard to play favorites, but I think that the large anchor and small anchor border might be my favorite images in this set…of course, that will probably change next time I play with this set!
