VIDEO | EMBOSS RESIST

By Jennifer del Muro
on August 18, 2022
Hi crafty friends, It's Joy here and I have a card for you today that shows the emboss resist technique. If you have never tried, you need too and if you have, you should do it again! I love this technique, it is so pretty when the embossing gets revealed with the ink. I hope you enjoy!
 
To see the full video tutorial on YouTube click here or watch below.
 
 
I started with a white piece of cardstock measuring 8 1/4 x 3 1/4 inches and stamped the images and sentiment from the A Beautiful Day stamp set. I stamped it with clear ink, then sprinkled on white embossing powder and heated that until it melted.
 
 
Once that was done, I started to ink blend, this is where the magic happens. The images come to life when you ink blend over the embossing powder. I used light oranges and corals for the ink blending. I also added light stenciling with the same colors of ink, to give it a tone on tone look.
 
 
I finished by adding the card panel to a white card base and adding some white sequins. 
 
 
I hope you this project, have a wonderful day!
Hugs,
Joy Baldwin

BIRTHDAY WISHES

By Jennifer del Muro
on August 17, 2022

 Hello!  Building up my birthday card collection!  I used several of the new release products today.  I used the new Sunny Flower stamp set, Deco Cover Panel and the new Hot Foil Combo: Birthday Wishes.   

I started by stamping the Sunny Flower stamp set and build my flowers up.  I then used the matching Sunny Flower Confetti Cuts to die cut the flowers and leaves.   I used some foam tape to build them up and add them to the panel.   

For my card panel, I die cut a panel with the Deco Cover Panel and then trimmed my die cut piece down.  I split the panel in half diagonally and trimmed the sides.  I then layered onto a kraft panel.   

Next I used my Glimmer Foil machine to create the sentiment with the new Hot Foil Combo: Birthday Wishes.  I am still getting use to using the foil machine but I love the results.   I then die cut the birthday wishes out with the matching Confetti Cuts.   

That is it for me today!   Have a wonderful day! 









GRATEFUL FALL FLOWERS

Hello crafty friends! Lien here with an early fall card! As always, I will leave the video linked below the tutorial if you're curious!

For this card I used the Fall Flowers stamp set and stamped all the elements onto white cardstock in copic friendly ink. I colored them in (for the full coloring process, check out the video below!) with my Ohuhu markers and then cut them out with the Coordinating dies.

For my background I diecut the Open Drop Cover Panel die three times out of white cardstock and I also added a fun pattern to one of the inside pieces using the Folklore Cover Panel. I blended some muted orange inks onto the inside drop piece, going from dark to light from the top to the bottom of the drop.

I used the Thank You hot foil plate and die set and foiled it in Espresso Bean Glimmer Hot Foil onto white cardstock. To not waste any foil, I also did some reverse foiling using the Pinkfresh Studio Solid Hot Foil Plate, which gives me a white sentiment on a foiled background. I added dimension to the sentiment by diecutting it twice more out of thick white cardstock and stacking the pieces together. As a finishing touch I added some matt gold pearls and that's it!

If you'd like to see how I made this card plus a fun matching envelope, please watch the video below! Thank you so much for visiting!

Hi there! It's Andrea back with you, and today I'm sharing a fun, back-to-school card featuring the School Days stamp set. School Good Vibes card by Andrea Shell | School Days stamp by Reverse Confetti Well, my kiddos are starting their third week of school, and we certainly need some good vibes! Coming off the laziness of summer has been hard! This card would be equally great to send to a college student heading off to school or studying for exams. School Good Vibes card by Andrea Shell | School Days stamp by Reverse Confetti I started by coloring those sweet images from the School Days set with Copics. I fussy-cut them (there are coordinating dies) and added some white highlights. My sentiment is from the Dog Days Sentiments. School Good Vibes card by Andrea Shell | School Days stamp by Reverse Confetti To create the composition notebook, I trimmed a paper from the Hello Holidays pack and adhered it to a white card. I used a paper punch to round the right corners and added a strip of black down the left side. I diecut a rounded rectangle from white cardstock, adhered it to my card, and attached my colored images. I popped up the sentiment with foam squares and finished with a couple of red enamel dots.

Happy Friday Reverse Confetti Fam! The dog days of Summer are almost behind us, but we still have a little over a month left to enjoy this Season. With that in mind, let's continue to celebrate no sweater weather with a mini treat this week.

Using the new Little Bits Envie die, I die cut a panel from blue cardstock. All the stitching you see is a part of the die -- isn't that great! I used the scored lines to fold the mini card into place.

Next, I too the Dog Days stamp set and stamped all the images out using Copic friendly ink, then colored in using my Copic markers. I saved the the other pieces for future projects, and took the surfer dude dog and some of the other tiny elements for the card.

I glued the dog onto the right side on the card front, and then added the small flower on the left, making sure to put it directly onto the little flap.

The last touch was to add a place to write. This die is measured to hold a square card that measures 2 5/8" x 2 5/8". Once I had the card cut I stamped 'you're so cool' using the Dog Days Sentiments stamp set. Finally, I added the shades next to the sentiment for a little extra fun on the inside.

That is it! I love this little card because how many times have you wanted to add just a small note to a gift box or bag and not had anything that quite fit the bill? No more waiting for that perfect die--you found it :)

I really hope this has inspired you to get creative this weekend. Happy crafting!

STAMPING ON ACETATE

Hi crafty friends, It's Joy here. I created a card with white stamping on a piece of acetate with a beautiful distressed background. This card was so easy and quick to create but, it has is a stunner. I hope you enjoy!
To watch the full video tutorial click here or watch below.
 
 
 
 
I started by ink blending my background with Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Ink, then I spritzed the background with Kitsch Flamingo and Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide Spray. I would dry the ink between colors so it wouldn't get muddy.
 
 
I put a piece of acetate in the Misti and centered the Roses image and the sentiment on it. I inked up the sentiment with white Stazon ink. This ink will dry on acetate. I used a whole punch to make two holes between the acetate and inked background. I used gold string to tie the two pieces together. I did this because there was no where to hide adhesive. I finished the card with gold sequins.
 
 
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed this project.
Hugs,
Joy

 Hey there!  I hope you are having a wonderful summer!  I am sharing this cool birthday card using the Dog Days stamp set.   I stamped all my images onto Neenah cardstock and then colored with my Copic markers.  I added the hermit crab from the Let's Shellabrate stamp set.  I die cut the images using the Dog Days and Let's Shellabrate Confetti Cuts.


I die cut a panel of yellow cardstock with the Open Drop Cover Panel.  I just love all the details that the Open Drop Cover Panel adds to the panel.   I ink blended a background using Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks.  I splattered the panel with water and then heat set it.   I stamped a sentiment from the Dog Days Sentiments stamp set. 


I added my images to the card with a mixture of foam tape and liquid adhesive. I added some details to the images with a white gel pen.   I love the bright and sunny colors of this card! 

I hope that you have a wonderful day! 

SUMMER CIRCLE CARD

Hello crafty friends! Lien here and today I'm going to combine one of my favorite summery products released this year, with one released last year!

For this card I used the Dog Days stamp set. I stamped and colored the adorable dog on the float with alcohol markers. I cut it out with the Coordinating dies and put it aside while working on the background.

This background has a few steps to it, but they're all super simple and it creates a really cool wave look! I started on a piece of light blue colored cardstock and blended on some darker blue inks to create an ombre look. I then used the gorgeous Circle of Waves die to die cut waves out of it. I die cut it once more from thick white cardstock to layer the pieces up and make them a little bit more sturdy.

Here comes the magic: white acrylic paint. All you need is a beat up brush, some white acrylic paint and you can go to town adding some "foam" to these waves. I simply put quite a thick layer of paint right on the edge of the wave, dry off the brush and drag the paint out a little bit. I add some dots as bubbles or small pieces of sea foam and that's it. Try not to be too even with it.

I glued these pieces onto a dry embossed piece of this Circle of Waves die, it just helps to line everything up and adhere everything together. I glued a piece of sand colored cardstock onto a circle card and adhered the waves on top. I added the dog image with foam tape and that's it!.

Hello and welcome to the August Hop! The Confetti Crew and our special 'Fetti Friends have lots of great projects to share with you today.  There's a full list of participants at the end of this post. 
Here in North Texas, we are enjoying the final days of the kiddos' summer vacation.  We've been fortunate enough to do a little traveling this summer, visiting both San Francisco and Myrtle Beach.  This summer seemed a little bit shorter than others in the past, but I think everyone is ready to get back into the routine of school and extracurriculars.
I was shopping at FiveBelow the other day and came across the cutest Squishmellows that I knew my kiddos would absolutely love.  I picked them up and created a couple tags to attached to them as a little first day of school prezzie. 
As soon as I knew that I was going to create a tag for these first day of school prezzies, I took out the School Days stamp and Confetti Cuts die set.  The bus image is watercolored with Karin Brush Markers.  I also used the pencil image from this set to create a tone on tone pattern at the base of the tag. 
The tag is cut from the Big Confetti Tag Confetti Cuts die set.  From there, I layered the smaller/inner tag shape (kraft) and then the images and the XOXO cut from the LAYERED XOXO Confetti Cuts die set.  Finally, the sentiment from the SCHOOL DAYS stamp set was stamped on a white panel and added across the XOXO.  I thought I was all done, but then I added the clouds at the last minute (cut from the OVER THE RAINBOW Confetti Cuts die set).
 
Now it's time for me to send you on your way to see what the rest of the Crew and our AWESOME 'Fetti Friends have to share with you today!
 

BIRTHDAY WISHES

Happy Friday RC fam! I'm so excited to be back with a new project this week. We can never seem to have enough birthday cards as crafters, and the new hot foil combo birthday wishes die is perfect for creating some foiled goodness.

To start the card, I used the Folklore Cover Panel to die cut an A2 panel from pink cardstock. Next I used the new Sunny Flower stamp and die set to stamp the solid flowers and leaves a few times onto white cardstock. I used the coordinating Confetti Cuts to die cut these out.

Next, I arranged the flowers and leaves with foam tape so they would stack and have some dimension. Then I hot foiled the 'birthday wishes' with silver foil and die cut it using the matching Confetti Cuts.

I wrapped up the card design by adding clear droplets to the flower centers and sprinkled around the card base and leaves.

That is it! A very easy and cute card that can be made over with so many different colors. I hope this has inspired you to get out and go craft!
