CUE THE CONFETTI

By Jennifer del Muro
on July 06, 2022

Hello!  Tricia here with you today to share this Cue the Confetti birthday card!  I started my card by ink blending with pink, orange, yellow, lime green and aqua blue inks onto a panel.   I then die cut the Big Flower Cover Panel from white cardstock and layered onto the inked panel.   



I die cut out three balloons with the Balloons Confetti Cuts from pink, orange and yellow cardstock.  To add more interest to the die cuts I stamped the balloons with the Dot to Dot stamp set and the Cup of Friendship stamp set in the matching ink colors.   I added some die cut ribbons using the Beautiful Balloons Confetti Cuts. 



I stamped and embossed a sentiment from Best Sentiments stamp set.  I layered my balloons and sentiment onto a die cut circle from the Square & Circle Frame Confetti Cuts.  Such a bright and happy birthday card!  Thank you for stopping by!




IN THE SPOTLIGHT

Hi crafty friends! I'm Lien and I'm back with a fun coloring project for your cards using the Hello Daisies stamp set and the classic Double Stitched Window cover panel!

I started out by cutting two A2 sized panels of white cardstock. I stamped the Hello Daisies stamp set in a soft grey ink on one panel and in black alcohol marker friendly ink on the other. I leave the stamp in my Misti while I colored the black outline with my alcohol markers. For the full coloring process, please watch the video below!

Once the panel was colored in, I put it back in my Misti and stamped the image again with Versafine Onyx Black ink and added WOW Clear Gloss Super Fine embossing powder to it for a glossy black outline. I then die cut both panels with the Double Stitched Window cover panel. On the grey panel I used the bold hello sentiment stamp and stamped it in that same Versafine Onyx Black and embossed it in clear gloss embossing powder as well.

I glued the grey stamped frame on top of a white notecard. The colored window insert, I propped up on some craft foam using double sided adhesive. To finish it up I used some Divine Illusion Meraki Sparkle gems .

Hello and happy Sunday, 'Fetti Family!  We are busy preparing for our summer release here at Reverse Confetti.  As a reminder, the date has been pushed back by one week.  We promise that it is worth the wait!
.
.
.
Today, we are excited to introduce you to two lovely guest designers, or as we like to call them, 'Fetti Friends.  Please join me in welcoming Sandhya and Angela.
I am Sandhya, a stamping and paper crafting enthusiast, and I have been making cards since the beginning of 2017. I live in Orange County with my husband and my two sons. My day job is in the software industry and after the kids go to bed I craft. I like exploring new media and fun ways to get creative in everything I do. My mission is to fill the world with kindness through art.
 
My name is Angela and I live in Los Angeles, California. I've always been the crafty type, but only discovered my love for card making in 2019 when I decided I needed a new hobby that would get me away from my computer on the weekends. I traded screen time for stamps, dies and some very inky fingers, and haven't looked back since! I'm excited to be guest designing for Reverse Confetti and look forward to sharing my projects with you in the coming weeks. You can find me on Instagram at @mycraftyperspective, and over on my blog at myfreshperspective.com.

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!

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

 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

By Jennifer del Muro

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!

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.

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.
