STOCK YOUR STASH

By Jennifer del Muro
on July 01, 2022

Greetings, 'Fetti Fans and Happy July!  I hope that everyone is enjoying their weekend.  I've been working all weekend in preparation for our next that is happening on May 15th.  If you're thinking that doesn't sound right...you're right! We have ALWAYS released on the 8th of the month, but this month is super special because my daughter turns 16 on July 8th and that day needs to be all about her.  She's shared 15 birthdays with release days, so this year we are pushing back the release date by a week.  I promise that it is worth the wait! 

.

.
As you know, with a new month comes a new STOCK YOUR STASH challenge.  Being that my first baby (the aforementioned almost 16 year old) has a birthday this month, the theme is BABY!

And now for a couple examples from our fabulous designers...

 

Hello crafty friends it’s Joy here with a cute baby tag designed for this month’s Stock Your Stash Challenge.

 

I die cut the large tag and stars from the Big Confetti Tag die, from watercolor cardstock and then stamped the images from the Better With Friends stamp set. I used the sun and clouds, along with a cute bunny.

 

I used Zig watercolor markers to color my images. I used Light Gray and Light Pink for the bunny, Dull Blue, Bright Yellow, Light Brown and Light Pink for the clouds and sun. The stars from the Big Confetti Tag are colored in Bright Yellow and Blue Gray. I used the coordinating dies to cut the stamped images out.

 

Then I splattered the tag with Blue Gray and Bright yellow to add some interest to the background. I hand wrote “baby” with a black pen and then adhered the cute images, some with foam tape for dimension. I finished the tag with pretty silver thread.

Happy Friday and happy July 1st! A new month, means a new Stock Your Stash challenge (SYS). This month's challenge is 'Oh, Baby' and I decided to create a cute baby card using pieces from a number of different sets.

I was really challenged with this month's theme because I haven't invested in any baby themed supplies from Reverse Confetti, and was struggling to figure out how I was going to create a baby themed card with my supplies on hand.

But, the saying is so true, 'necessity is the mother of all invention' because I created this card using all supplies I had on hand with none of them being baby themed.

First I used the Folklore Cover Panel (my new go to cover panel) to cut a background from white cardstock and glue it down to an A2 white card base.

Next, I had an idea to create a baby in a basket and looked through my supplies for the shapes I would need. My 'basket' came from the carton that is in the Egg Carton set that was released earlier this year. I simply cut the carton from pink cardstock, then turned it upside down.

I used the Dot to Dot stamp set to stamp a round circle on brown cardstock and then fussy cut it out to get the baby head.

For the 'blanket' I cut the Large Rainbow Circle confetti cut from Neenah Desert Storm cardstock, and just used one piece of the rainbow to tuck into the egg carton

I also used a black fineline pen to draw a cute face onto the baby's face.

The sentiment was used from the Wildflowers stamp set and I thought it was a fitting sentiment for someone who has a new bundle of joy on the way.

Lastly, I used the Big Confetti Tag confetti cuts set to cut confetti from holographic cardstock. I took out the hearts and glued them right above the baby, and added a few light ink jewels around the hearts.

That is it! There is a first time for everything, and I'm so proud to have created a baby card entirely out of non-baby supplies. I hope this post encourages you to go and find new ways to stretch your supplies!

LUCKY ME

Hey 'Fetti Fans, it's Amy T here sharing a citrus themed project!  I love all things citrus, both in papercrafting and in real life.  I haven't inked up the Orange Blossoms set in a awhile.

 


I teamed it up with the Postal Cover Panel.  I used a rectangle die in my stash to cut the interior out so that I could make my own pattern paper with strips of cardstock from my stash.



I added a stamp from the Sentimental Gems.  I decided to cut it with a circle die to compliment the shape of the oranges.  I topped it off with enamel dots from my stash.

‘TIS THE (POOL) SEASON

By Jennifer del Muro
on June 29, 2022

 Hello! I hope you are having a wonderful summer.  For today's project, I am using Hippo Pool Party along with Sparkle & Shine Sentiments stamp set.   The Sparkle & Shine Sentiments is a Christmas holiday sentiment set but I thought it went well with my card  - 'tis the season for the beach!


To create my beach scene I used the new Large Rainbow Circle Confetti Cuts and created a beach scene with yellow, white, dark aqua, light aqua and sand cardstock.   I used a smaller die cut circle to layer the different cardstocks and the negative space from the Large Rainbow Circle Confetti Cuts and pieced in each of the pieces.  I then added this to the Center Circle Cover Panel.   I backed this panel with some aqua cardstock that had been stamped with the circle stamp with the Dot to Dot stamp set.  

I stamped the images out from Hippo Pool Party and die cut out with the Hippo Party Confetti Cuts.  I also add a little shell from the Let's Shellabrate stamp set.   I colored with my Copics and used the follow markers: 

Hippo: W00, W0, W1, W2, W3, R32, R22, R24, R27, R29

Bag: E30, E31, E33, E34, Y17, Y15, Y13, Y11, BG10, BG11, BG02, R24

Beach Ball: Y17, Y15, Y13, Y11, C1, C0

Shell: YR00, YR01

Umbrella: BG000, BG00, BG13, BG18, BG49

I hope you have a wonderful day!  

VIDEO | BRIGHT FLORAL CARD

Hi crafty friends! I'm Lien and I'm back with an easy way to add some detail to your die cuts while making a bright and bold flower card!

For this card I started out by die cutting a bunch of pieces. I used bright and bold colors for my flowers two shades of pink, two shades of blue and some yellow for smaller flowers), and grey for the background. The wonderful dies I used today are some of my all-time favorite Reverse Confetti dies. The flowers are from the Floral Chain Cover Panel die set and the Easter Cover Panel die set. The grey cardstock was cut with the Stitched Scallops Cover Panel die.

I layered up some of the flowers using the same color in the two different shades each time so I could get some different looks out of these dies. Now these flowers are very large and they could use a little bit of detail, so following the dips at the top of the petals, I'm creating some faux stitching to the centre. I'm simply putting down some dashlines with a white gelpen.

I also die cut some leaves using the coordinating die from the beautiful Autumn Apple Cider stamp set. I arranged everything on my background and once I was happy with it, I picked it up with some Press 'N Seal. I first added glue to only the leaves because I want those to be adhered flat to my background, press them down and lift up the Press 'N Seal again keeping the flowers on there. I adhere those with foam tape.

I finished the card up with some leftover small flowers, a white heat embossed sentiment from the Poppies stamp set and some embellishments in the center of the flowers and in a few spots around the design as well. Make sure to watch the video for more tips and tricks!

Hi, friends! It's Andrea with you today sharing a patriotic card featuring the beautiful Hello Daisy stamp set. Daisy Happy Independence Day by Andrea Shell | Hello Daisy stamp by Reverse Confetti Now that my daisies are starting to bloom and July 4th is fast approaching, I couldn't resist using the Hello Daisy stamp set for a patriotic card. I started by coloring that beautiful bouquet with Copics and then cut it out with the coordinating dies. Daisy Happy Independence Day by Andrea Shell | Hello Daisy stamp by Reverse Confetti I diecut that red gingham paper with the scalloped rectangle die from the Easter Cover Panel Confetti Cuts. I mounted that to a white card and popped up the flowers with foam squares. Daisy Happy Independence Day by Andrea Shell | Hello Daisy stamp by Reverse Confetti For my sentiment I combined the Happy Confetti Cuts with the Happy Coordinates stamp set. I diecut "happy" from white and blue cardstocks and layered them onto my card. I stamped the supporting sentiment from Happy Coordinates, trimmed it down and adhered it with foam squares. For a bit of sparkle, I finished with a scattering of gems. Have a wonderful week! *Affiliate links used at no cost to you.

HAPPY DOGGONE BIRTHDAY

Hello! April here back on the Reverse Confetti blog sharing a new paw-some card! I don't have any pets (allergic to cats and dogs!), but I love creating cards with little animals.

For today's project, I used a few stamps from the Birthday Buddies stamp set. I stamped them with a Copic friendly ink and then lightly colored them in, making sure to use lots of red.

I cut a gray piece of cardstock sized to 4.25" x 5.5" and used the matching Confetti Cut for the doggie to die cut the dog shape from the middle of the panel. I then adhered the panel to an A2 card front using foam tape.

I then added the cut out die cut of the dog to the center of the card in the place I had cut out. Around the dog I added the balloons and pile of bones. I stamped the sentiment using the Birthday Buddies Banter stamp set.

For final touches I used a glitter pen to add sparkle to all the red areas -- ribbon, doggie nose, balloons. Also, I used a white gel pen to add some dots to the top and bottom corners of the card to just add some interest and keep the gray panel from looking too plain.

That is it! This card was pretty quick and you could easily recreate it using a different accent color other than red.

PAW-SOME

Hello crafty friends it's Joy here. I have a fun card for you today. I created a Mini Slimline Trifold card with peek a boo images, using the super cute Birthday Buddies Stamp and Die. I hope you enjoy it!

 

To see the full video tutorial on YouTube click here .

 

I started with a piece of white cardstock trimmed to 10 1/2 " x 6 1/2". I scored the cardstock on the longside at 3 1/2" and then flipped it around and scored it again at 3 1/2". So each section will be 3 1/2". When you fold it the dimensions will be 3 1/2" x 6 1/2". I used a masking stencil with three squares and lined it up on the front of the card panel. I taped the coordinating dies for the images I will be coloring, in the open squares and taped them down. I opened the card all the way and ran it through the die cut machine. I ink blended the front panel with orange ink.


I colored the images with Copic Markers and die cut them out. On the second fold of the card, I lined up the masking stencil and ink blended the squares with same color as the front. I closed the front panel and then adhered the colored images through the die cut holes. Now they are adhered to the second panel.


I stamped the sentiment for the front and trimmed it out, then stamped the sentiments on the inside with black ink. I finished the card with white gel highlights, black glaze pen details and a few wooden hearts from my stash on the front.
Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day

OCEANS OF LOVE

 Hello!  Tricia here with you today to share my slimline card using the Oceans of Love stamp set with the Circle Rays Duo Confetti Cuts. I used the Circle Ray Duos as sand dollars in my ocean scene.  I used the Easter Cover Panel and the negative die cut to create the sandy border.  


I started by ink blending with Distress Oxides inks with Villainous Potion, Peacock Feathers and Salvaged Patina for my background and then created the sand with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo.  I splattered everything with white and black paint.   I also splattered the sand dollars.   

I stamped the images out from Oceans of Love and colored with my Copic markers.   I die cut them out with the Oceans of Love Confetti Cuts.  I added details with a white gel pen and added them to the background adhering some with liquid glue and foam tape.   

I stamped the sentiment from Versamark ink and white embossed the sentiment onto black cardstock.   I trimmed it out and added to the panel with foam tape.   I added some final details with some Distress Stickles.   I hope you have a wonderful day!

Hi crafty friends! Lien here with a great technique, two fun cards and a youtube video! Today I'm using my two favorite cover plate dies and the gorgous A Beautiful Day stamp set.

For this card I'm using Simon Hurley's Stamping Foam, which is a great tool to stretch your supplies. If you heat up the foam and press it into a stamp/die/anything textured it creates a stamp. Heat the foam up again and you can start with a clean slate! So I created two stamps for my butterflies from the A Beautiful Day stamp set. I put the butterflies down on my work surface and press the heated up stamp foam on them. If you have a slick surface that's perfect to keep the stamps in place but not necessary since you don't have to worry too much about things shifting around.

I added color to the stamping foam by rubbing some ink cubes over it. You get a better result if you rub on the ink instead of stamping or pressing it on like you would a regular stamp. I spritz some water over it and press it into watercolor cardstock.

To make my cards I die cut two cover panel dies. For the first card I'm using the Brilliance Cover Panel die and for the second I'm using the Folklore Cover Panel die. I stamped a sentiment from the A Beautiful Day stamp set on the Brilliance Cover Panel die and adhered my large butterfly right above that with foam tape.

For my second card I cut a diagonal gap in the Folklore Cover Panel die and added the two sides to my cardbase with foam tape. I added some strips of silver glitter cardstock on both edges and adhered my butterfly on there with foam tape, putting some foliage underneath it. I finished both cards off with some gems and voilà!

For more tips and tricks and to see the full process, please check out the video I made on the Reverse Confetti YouTube channel!
