Once again, this is what our schedule looks like for the next few days...
In addition to having a chance to win just by leaving a comment on the sneak peek posts, we are also running a Facebook promotion.  After you are done checking out the sneak peeks, head on over to OUR FACEBOOK PAGE and look for this graphic pinned to the top of our feed…

. . . . .
There's a BONUS to this release, too!  We have a special FREEBIE stamp set that we are gifting you with a minimum purchase.  I'll post the product graphic towards the end of this post.
. . . . .
Today we are introducing one stamp set and few new Confetti Cuts dies.  This set has been floating around in my mind for so long and I finally got the ideas down on paper and to the illustrator and I just love what she did with it.  As the mother of a strong, smart and beautiful daughter, I proudly introduce to you...
GIRL POWER
Coordinating Confetti Cuts...
In addition to the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set, I also have THREE more Confetti Cut reveals for you today...
. . . . .
My first card today features the new GIRL POWER stamps and dies, along with the BIG BURST and GRL PWR Confetti Cuts...
I started with a PREMIER POLAR WHITE card base and then added a PREMIER POLAR WHITE panel that I cut with the new BIG BURST Confetti Cuts.  I layered a piece of BUMBLEBEE cardstock behind it and then added a BIG BURST cut from BUTTERCUP in front of it, slightly offset.
On the corners, I added strips of ICED AQUA, TANGERINE and BUMBLEBEE cardstock and then added the GRL PWR cuts to the lower right corner. 
The girl is colored with Copics.  As a finishing touch, I added a few sequins.
. . . .
I always envisioned the fists in the air being colored as all different races.  Little did I know that this would be such prominently relevant topic today.  My daughter, the empath, the volunteer and the budding activist came to me the other day and asked if we could attend a rally in our town.  With a few social distancing rules set, we ventured down to the the local rally.  It was peaceful, educational and empowering and I am so glad that we got to take part in it together.  This stamp set is about girl power, but the rally really had some inspiration as I made this card...
Can you spot the new INSIDE SCALLOP CIRCLE TAG on this card? 
Yep, I made it into a panel here as opposed to a tag!  I did trim off the tab portion.
It is a 2 piece die set, so I was able to cut another solid tag from SUNSHINE cardstock and layer it under the scalloped one.
From there I was able to layer all of the Copic colored images and place the sentiment.
The stripe paper is from the SWEET STRIPES 6x6 paper pad and I created the other "patterned paper" by stamping the heart from the GIRL POWER stamp set in ICED AQUA on ICED AQUA cardstock.
. . . . .
Before I send you on your way to see what the Confetti Crew and our 'Fetti Friends have to share with you today, I want to share the FREEBIE stamp set with you once again...

FRIENDLY RAINBOW

. . . . .
Now you're off to see what the rest of the Confetti Crew has created to share with you today.  I hope that you are inspired and uplifted by these new stamps and Confetti Cuts dies!

Greetings, 'Fetti FAMILY!  Remember, I get to call you all FAMILY now that we've been together 7 years.  Well, seven years and one month to be exact.  As you know, May was our birthday month, but due to some Covid-19 related manufacturing delays, we had to push back our big birthday celebration until NOW.  The party starts today and I think that you will agree that this release is definitely #worththewait.

Anyone want FREE stamps?  Details down below!
This is what our schedule looks like for the next few days...

. . . . .
And, here we are!  Are you READY FOR ((NEW)) CONFETTI?
Grab that cuppa and sit back, relax and enjoy all the Confetti Creativity we have to share with you today!
Today I am introducing 2 new stamp sets, their coordinating Confetti Cuts die sets and a new Cover Panel.  PLUS...the FREEBIE stamp set (details below). 
First up is the first of the stamp sets...

BOWL OF BLOOMS

Coordinating Confetti Cuts...
The first card that I have to share with you today is a cute lil' 3.5" x 5" card.  I had intended to make a long/tall card, but my layout wasn't coming out how I wanted it to so I cut it down to this cute size.  I think I'll be doing that more often!
I started by watercoloring the BOWL OF BLOOMS image with my Karin brushmarkers.  This was my first time using these and I am hooked!  I love how they make this large line art image just pop!
One of the detail images included in this set is a little card like you see on floral arrangements that are delivered.  I colored and cut it out and tucked it "into" the arrangement...
The sentiment is stamped in MIDNIGHT ink and placed on the card atop a patterned paper panel cut from the THIS & THAT 6x6 paper pad.
. . . . .
I mentioned that new COVER PANEL, right?

CENTER CIRCLE COVER PANEL

I used the new CENTER CIRCLE COVER PANEL along with the new BOWL OF BLOOMS stamps and Confetti Cuts on this card...
The card base is PREMIER POLAR WHITE and then I layered a panel of ROYAL PURPLE cardstock on top of the base.  From there, I cut the new CENTER CIRCLE COVER PANEL from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock and mounted it with dimensional adhesive.
The BOWL OF BLOOMS images are colored with Karin brushmarkers. 
As you can see, I layered a cut of gold cardstock behind the main image, just slightly offset.  I love how the gold and the purple look together and it really gave this card a little extra "punch."
The CENTER CIRCLE COVER PANEL features a large center circle (hence the name) along with framed and stitched detailing.
. . . . .
The next introduction that we have for you today is another fabulous floral set...

SKETCHED FLORALS

Coordinating Confetti Cuts...
I had a lot of fun playing with this multi-step stamp set!  On the sticker that comes on the stamp set, the images are labeled A, B and C so you can see which layer goes together.
For this card, I started with a PREMIER POLAR WHITE card base and then pop up a layer cut with the (previously released) SMALL DIAMOND TILES COVER PANEL.  From there I layered another panel of white and then the main image panel, which is more of a layer than a panel.
That layer is STORMY cardstock and I stamped the line images in STORMY ink and then I colored in the images with my Polychromos pencils.  After they were colored in, I stamped the line images again with a white pigment ink.
Before I added the sentiment, I stamped/colored/stamped and cut the floral image that I have tucked under the sentiment flag.  As a final touch, I added the yellow enamel accents.
. . . . .

Before I send you on your way to see what the Confetti Crew and our 'Fetti Friends have to share with you today, let me introduce one more stamp set...

FRIENDLY RAINBOW

This set can be yours for FREE with any $60 purchase!  Just add it to your cart and the discount is automatic.  Quantities are limited and we will not be re-ordering, so get it while it's here!
Here's a card I made using this darling set...
I still had the Karin brushmarkers on my desk and I was really tempted to watercolor this image for this card, but I ultimately decided to reach for my Copics and color and alternatively colored rainbow and have the sentiment colored with a gradient.  The layered panels under the main image panel ROYAL PURPLE and GRAPE SODA cardstock along with the lime green stripe paper from the SWEET STRIPES 6x6 paper pad.
Knowing that there would not be a die set to coordinate with this set, I kept the lines simple and easy to cut with scissors. 
gasp...fussy cutting?? 
Believe me, I get it...that's why the lines are simple to follow.!
. . . . .

Ok, now my time is done and it's time for you to head over to see what our wonderful team of designers have created to share with you today...


HAPPILY EVER AFTER

Hello Fetti Fans! Welcome to another blog post. Ali here with some soft sweetness for you with this Wedding card using Happy Mail for my background and Patterned Hearts for the feature images. I remembered a lovely card by Hannelie Bester that inspired me to try the feature of this card - simple black ink floral stamping behind a contrasting image. I loved the variety of heart patterns in these images so much I had to use a few of them across the card!
The other benefit of this simple design is there is no coloring involved! Just stamping with inks! It's refreshing to have a break from lots of detailed coloring-in now and again. To begin, I stamped the floral images on the card front with my InkOn3 Blackout Ink. I then stamped the hearts in distress oxide inks in Victorian Velvet and Hickory Smoke inks.
I used my mini misti so that I could stamp the hearts repeatedly to get good color coverage and crisp images. I then used the corresponding dies to cut out the hearts and cut 2 larger hearts out of vellum to place behind the pink hearts (with the corresponding dies used for this also). 
 
 I adhered the hearts in a alternating color placement over the card front so that the floral images peaked out from behind them. I stamped the sentiment from the So Very Lovely stamp set on black card and white embossed it. I backed it with a small piece of silver glitter paper to help it stand out and added some silver sequins for some more pops of silver.

Hope you enjoyed the card and that you are getting in some fabulous crafting.
Ali xx






 

FLORAL CARD

Hi friends! It's Jeanne here today and I hope you're having a great day! I am so glad the days are getting warmer so I can spend more time outdoors. And while we are doing many things the same - staying home and social distancing the garden is a wonderful change of scenery. My yard has many perennials that are starting to bloom - iris, peony and clematis to name a few.
The beautiful flowers inspired me to color the BEST DAYS stamp set in a rainbow of colors - a feast for the eyes!
This card started with the split background. A 1 1/2" panel of mimosa coral pattern paper from the FOREVER MY LOVE pad is on the left edge of the card. The right half is 2 3/4" of a DIAGONAL SCALLOPS die cut panel backed with some matching DARLING DOTS paper.
Half of a LACY SCALLOP CIRCLE is adhered to the right half of the card and topped with a floral bouquet colored with Copic Markers. A few enamel dots add more color and a bit of shine to the design. 
I hope you find happiness in the little things and the sun is shining wherever you are! Finished Size 4.25 x 5.5" Stamps | Reverse Confetti Best Days Dies | Reverse Confetti Best Days, Lacy Scallop Circle, Diagonal Scallops Panel Pattern Paper | Reverse Confetti Forever My Love, Darling Dots

Hey there!  Tricia here to share my card for this month's Stock Your Stash Challenge with the theme for June...  Hello or Just Because.   I love these kind of cards because you can use them for any occasion.   I am using the Greatest Adventure  stamp set to create this cool outdoor scene with two things that I love - sitting by a fire and being outdoors!  
To start the card, I created a slimline design.  Here are my dimensions - Inked panel 3.5 by 8.25 inches with a white card base 7.5 by 8.5 inches scored at 3.75 inches.  
I inked the card panel with Reverse Confetti inks:  Buttercup, Bumblebee, Iced Aqua, Lagoon and Abyss inks using blender brushes.  I die cut the panel on the blue side with All the Stars Confetti Cuts and layered some blue foil paper behind it.   To create my ground, I used Lead cardstock and trimmed it with the Nuts About You border die and used both the positive and negative die cuts.   I added an Iced Aqua Pool Confetti Cuts that had been inked with Iced Aqua ink on the edge.   
I stamped my images from Greatest Adventure onto Premier Polar White cardstock and then colored with my Copic markers.   I die cut the images out with the Greatest Adventure Confetti Cuts.   I stamped a sentiment from Greatest Adventure onto the Lead cardstock and white heat embossed it.   I then added my images to the card with a mix of liquid adhesive and foam tape to create depth and diminsion.   I tucked a cloud from Over the Rainbow Confetti Cuts under one of the trees.   

To finish off my card, I added some details with my clear sparkle pen, white gel pen and some crystal jewels.    I hope you get a chance to play along with this month's Stock Your Stash theme!!!

Hey 'Fetti Fans, it's Amy T and I'm so excited to be on the blog!  Today is the start of the June Stock Your Stash challenge.  The theme is Hello | Just Because and this is how I was inspired:
I decided to do a makeover on one of my original cards using the beautiful, The Best Days set.   One of the biggest changes is the softer color palette.  If you've been following me for any length of time, I've become quite the pastel crafter.
I combined The Best Days with the Stitched Burst Cover Panel and the Stitched Note & Frames.  The sentiment has been stamped in Midnight on a banner from the Flowers for Mom confetti cuts set.

My base panel is Stone, one of my favorite neutral colors that Reverse Confetti carries.  The summer pattern paper is from the Sun & Sea 6x6.

I can't wait to see how you're inspired!

Hello! Olga with you today. 
Sunny days in my city. Hello, summer! My card about it.


At first, I stamped the elements from Let`s Shellabrate and covered it with masking paper. Then I stamped the hippo from Hippo Pool Party and covered it too.  


I toned the background using inks. I made one part of the background blue as water, and the other yellow as sand. Then I made the water splashes. 
I deleted the masking paper and colored the details of my card with markers.


I stamped the title and covered it with glossy accents. I decorated my card using drops and white permanent marker. 


  Have a nice day!









OH, JOYOUS DAY

 Sometimes it's the simple things that bring us joy.  A good cup of coffee does the trick for me!  That and the fact that the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Hop is going on right now, too!
 For my card, I cut Piggy Bank cardstock using the Diagonal Stitches Cover Panel, adhered to the Cloud White card base then layered a pattern from Cue the Confetti paper pad.
Using the Choose Joy stamp set, I stamped the flowers in Flamingo, the leaves in Lime Green, the wreath in Sand and the sentiment in Midnight.  I then arranged the flowers around the wreath.
The sweet coffee cup and spoon are from the Drink More Coffee stamp set and coordinating dies.  I then layered one of the Choose Joy flowers onto the cup.  To finish, I added a few small sequins.

MAIN SQUEEZE

Hello Reverse Confetti Friends!  Amy Kolling here sharing a card for that special someone.  This in particular is an anniversary card!
 
Using the Stitched Hex Tag Confetti Cuts, I die cut four pieces from just the bottom of the tags.  TIP: Don't die cut the whole tag....just the bottom!  Save on some cardstock.  This gives more value to these tag dies!  This tag has the triple stitch around the bottom and is the perfect chevron.  By layering them up, I created this fun landscape for my simple scene.
 
My Copic colored bear from Huggable was die cut and added with foam adhesive over a Broken China Distress Ink blended background.  To ground my bear, I added a white heat embossed black sentiment strip from Lemonade Stand.  As a final touch, I added six die cut hearts from the Huggable Confetti Cuts around my bear.  Simple but just enough detail.
 
Thanks for sharing a part of your day here with me!

A TRUE FRIEND

Hello Fetti Fans! Ali here and It's great to see you again on the Reverse Confetti Blog - hope you are doing ok and keeping up with some crafting. I needed some 'pretty' in my life this week and the floral images from Happy Mail were just perfect for some delicate softness. I love that my Reverse Confetti stash has such diversity of images so that I can feed my eclectic approach to crafting (more on that below).  Read on for details of my card and some of my crafting musings for the week!
 
I have a question to ask along with this post: do you have a "style" to your cardmaking?  Or even, do you think you necessarily need to have a "style"?  There is so much I enjoy about this craft and one of the main thinks is the diversity and exploration it brings to my crafting.  It's for this reason that I don't think I have a distinct style.......and that's ok.  I think too many crafters put themselves under pressure to have a defined 'style' when it can actually limit your enjoyment of your crafting (and audience).
I guess I just wanted to encourage all you fellow eclectic crafters out there to keep doing 'you'!  Because, I too, like to try lots of different techniques and styles with my cardmaking (the only downside I can see so far is that I do want to try everything so budgeting is more difficult! hehe).
Anyway, enough musing - to my card!
I used the Double Stitched Window Cover Panel to cut a frame and then ran it through my die cutting machine with the Diagonal Stitches Cover Panel. I adhered this to a white cardbase. I stamped my images with InkOn3 blackout ink and coloured them with Copics:
RV55, RV14, RV23
BG49, BG23, BG11
YG25, YG06
I added details with a white Gelly Roll Pen.
I die cut the images with the corresponding die and positioned them around the frame - to see where to stamp the sentiment (from The Most Beauty) which I also stamped in the blackout ink. I adhered the flowers with 3D foam. Pretty, Pretty, Pretty!
Thanks for stopping by!
Ali xx
