TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

Well, we’re starting to get into the groove of things here at REVERSE CONFETTI. I hope you like what you’ve seen so far…as there’s lots more up ahead!

Yesterday, you saw that we will post our ‘Fetti Finds, along with a new link list for that week every Monday.  If you missed yesterday’s post, be sure to check it out so you can find out how you can get Reverse Confetti stamps before they are released!

On Tuesdays, you will find more inspiration using Reverse Confetti stamps on our Time For a Card Tuesday posts.  Of course there will be cards shared, but I may choose to do a tag or other project featuring our stamps.  I think I may be getting talked into doing it in video form, too.  While that won’t be immediate, be sure to stay tuned!

. . . . .

This week’s Time For A Card Tuesday features our just released set, PEACOCK PRETTIES.  My go-to colors for this set have been the traditional color scheme of peacock feathers…blues, greens and purples.  I wanted to break that mold and mix it up a little with some pink and oranges.  I stuck with the aqua, because it compliments the other colors nicely…and it was just sitting on my desk begging to be used.

PinkPeacock

The peacock feathers were stamped in bright pink on a white panel so they would POP, even with the sentiment on top of it.  The feather “eye” and “Live.Laugh.Love” sentiment were both stamped repeatedly in VersaMark watermark ink to give a subtle appearance that adds to the overall design of the card.

I love this sentiment, as it applies to every creative soul that I know and it’s such a great motivational quote…perfect for those graduates!  Truth be told, I did not originally have it stamped in black on aqua paper.  In fact, I tried a few different color combinations, but I love the way that the black ink makes the smallest panel on the card stand out, and the aqua ties into the other aqua panel…

For finishing touches, I rounded the corners of the card and added some coordinating enamel dots.

ARE YOU A ‘FETTI FIND?

Hello and Happy Monday ‘Fetti Friends!  I hope you all enjoyed a nice spring Mother’s Day weekend.  I was super spoiled by my kiddos and hubby.  I got to sleep in…until my 3 year old came bombing in, screaming “Happy Mudder’s Day! Wake UUUUUUP!”  Fortunately, my hubby knows me very well and immediately handed me a large cup of coffee…which was followed up by breakfast in bed (a yummy bagel sandwich) and handmade cards and gifties from the kiddos.  All that, along with a trip to the park, movie (and nap!) on the couch and dinner out made it a day to remember!

. . . . .

We celebrated our moms this weekend, and now Reverse Confetti is celebrating (the creative side of )YOU!  Many of you have Reverse Confetti stamps in your hands already and many more soon will, and we want to see what you are creating…and give you a chance to win more Reverse Confetti stamps (even before you can buy them)!

We want you to share your Reverse Confetti creations with us (and the rest of the stamping world!). Just link your project(s) below from your blog or other gallery to show what you made with your Reverse Confetti stamps.

Each Monday we’ll be posting:

It’s time to CELEBRATE THE CREATIVE SIDE OF YOU!

CLEAN AND SIMPLE WITH PEACOCK PRETTIES

WOW!  What a week! Thank you all for the wonderfully warm reception. Many of you have stamps on the way to you already and I see that a few of you have them already!  I can’t wait to see what you come up with using REVERSE CONFETTI stamps!  Speaking of seeing what you make, we are in the process of getting a gallery set up for you to upload your Reverse Confetti creations. For now, please link them on our Facebook Page.

. . . . .

Today, I am sharing a card using the *just released* set, PEACOCK PRETTIES.  It’s actually the very first card that I made using REVERSE CONFETTI stamps.  I had the sketch and colors for this card in my head long before I even had the stamps in my hand.  While the card does have a few layers, I still consider the overall design clean and simple.

PeacockPretties_HelloFriend

The rectangular green and purple panels have been stamped in Versamark repeatedly with the “feather eye” graphic.  Although I have a (strong) admiration for pattern paper, I love when I can make my own and it’s even better when it pulls the whole theme/look of a project together.

The peacock feather on the main focal panel is embossed with gold tinsel embossing powder.  It is so shimmery!

PeacockPretties_HelloFriend_detail

The “hello friend” sentiment is one of the sentiments included in this set.  I always like to have friend/just because cards on hand so I can reach for them as needed.  While this one might not go anywhere since it’s my very first Reverse Confetti card, I know that several more like it will be made for my stash.

For the crafter/glitter girl in all of us, here’s a card using the I LIKE YOU set…

Glitter

I had a lot of fun creating this card, although I am pretty sure that I still have glitter my eye from it!  While the glitter was spark-a-lay enough on it’s own, I decided to kick it up a notch and make it even more fun with sequins and rhinestones.

To create the glittered panel, I used circle sticky dots in various sizes on a single white cardstock panel and then sprinkled yellow, orange and pink NEON glitter (a purchase I completely blame on Susan Opel) over the dots.  Then I cut the panel in half and flipped one so that the colors were opposite.  The sentiment panel covers up the seam.

Before I send you on your way to the next stop on the hop, I wanted to share our local launch party information.  If you’re local, be sure to stop by for a make and take!  See you there!
