SHELLABRATE

Hello Fetti' friends! I am excited to be back on the blog this week sharing a card using the newly released Birthday Buddies stamp and Confetti Cuts set. I love cardmaking because you can imagine just about anything -- such as floating turtles :)



I really have fallen in love with this tiny turtle, and wanted to create a card using it multiple times. To begin this card I grabbed a Copic-friendly black ink and stamped the turtle, balloon bouquet and party hats multiple times.



I then colored them in alternating between shades of red, purple, blue and yellow. I will put all my color combinations at the bottom of this post.  I then used the coordinating Confetti Cuts to die cut out the images.



Next, I cut a piece of cardstock down to 8" x 9" and folded it in half to create a 4" x 9" slimline card base.  For my fluffy clouds, I took some cardstock pieces cut from a cloud die, and used them as a stencil to ink blend a cloud background using Distress Oxide inks.


The last step was to arrange the all the turtles on the card. I arranged them how I wanted them, with the balloons behind them, then glued everything down to make sure I didn't accidentally glue balloons over a turtle's face.  I used a combination of foam tape and liquid glue to make sure everything adhered together well. I also used liquid glue and a small foam dot to add the party hats to their heads.



Final touches were to stamp the 'time to shellabrate' sentiment from the Birthday Buddies Banter stamp set in the middle of the card, and cover the bows and party hats with a liquid glitter pen.

I just love these floating turtles and am so excited to have made such a whimsical and fun card.  I hope this post inspires you to check out the new Birthday Buddies stamp set, and to go have fun creating!


Copics Used:
Turtle: YG01, YG03, YG09
Bows, Hats and Balloons: Red: R20, R24; Blue: B21, B24; Purple: V01, V05; Yellow: Y11, Y15

Hello crafty friends, it's Joy here and I hope you are having a fantastic day! I have fun and playful card for you today using the Big Confetti Tag Die and I put the Circle Gift Card Holder on the inside. This is a great card design for anybody, all you need to do is change the color scheme. To watch the full video tutorial on YouTube click here or watch below.

I die cut the tags from the Big Confetti Tag Die from white cardstock and the stars from green and blue cardstock. I cut 1/4" strips of cardstock in pink, yellow, blue and green. I laid the smaller tag at an angle on the larger tag, then adhered the strips of cardstock to the smaller tag. I trimmed off the excess and then adhered those pieces to the larger tag, lining them up with the small tag strips. I popped the smaller tag up with foam tape to give it some dimension.

I adhered the tags to a white A2 card base, then glued the stars with foam tape and liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Birthday Buddies Banter stamp set with black ink and trimmed it out. I used foam tape behind that as well. I finished the card with sequins and added the die Circle Gift Card Holder to the inside of the card. Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed this project. Hugs, Joy

Hello!  I am using the new Love Wins and Wildflowers stamp sets.   I stamped the Wildflowers stamp onto Neenah cardstock with light grey ink.  I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set using black ink.   I trimmed out the stamped panel with a circle die from the Square & Circle Frame Confetti Cuts.   


I stamped the cat from Love Wins and colored the cat with my Copic Markers:  YR04, Y17, Y21, R30, R32, R35, BG45, W3, W1, 0, E74.   I added some crystal glaze to the glasses and some Distress Stickles i Christmas Red to the bow after it had been die cut with the Love Wins Confetti Cuts.  


I die cut an aqua card panel with the new Circle Gift Card Holder Confetti Cuts and then stamped the panel with the Background Builder.  I used my MISTI to get perfect spacing from the stripe stamp.  I die cut a small heart using the Love Wins Confetti Cuts and added it the hemp twine bow.  I finished it off with the Distress Stickles in Christmas Red.   I just love this little kitty with the glasses! TOO CUTE! 


Thank you for stopping by! 

 

DIE CUT INLAY BACKGROUND

Hi crafty friends! I really just can't get enough of the Love Love Wins stamp set. But I promise I'll be back using some other products next week! Make sure to check out the video at the bottom of the post!

For this card I stamped the gorgeous pair of lions from the Love Wins stamp set in Versafine Onyx Black ink onto watercolor cardstock. I embossed it with Clear Gloss embossing powder and colored them in with Karin Brushmarkers. If you want to see the coloring process, check out the video!

I blended Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink on the center of a piece of cardstock in a circle and die cut the Circle Element Confetti Cuts from that. I also die cut that same die once more out of specialty holographic cardstock. I saved all the pieces from the holographic cardstock in a little tray because I want to inlay these into the purple circle. I adhered the inkblended piece onto a piece of copy paper, put glue in the openings and inlayed all the holographic pieces in there for a really shiny die cut inlay technique. To make it easier to pick up the tiny inlay pieces I use a jewel picker!

I used a rectangle die to trim the panel down a little and adhered a piece of cardboard behind it to prop it up. I added foam tape behind the lions and that's it! You can find the entire process over on YouTube!

PATRIOTIC SHAKER CARD

Patriotic Thank You shaker card by Andrea Shell | Love Wins stamp by Reverse Confetti When I saw this flag-waving bear from the Love Wins stamp set, I couldn't help but think of an American flag waving in the breeze. Before I stamped the image, I masked off part of the flag and then drew a tiny line so that I could create the blue portion. I colored the image with Copics, added the white star with a gel pen, and diecut the image with the coordinating die set. Patriotic Thank You shaker card by Andrea Shell | Love Wins stamp by Reverse Confetti To create the illusion of a flag waving in the background, I rotated the Large Rainbow Circle Confetti Cuts (It also reminds me of the bunting you see around July 4th). I cut it from an A2 panel of white cardstock and some scrap red paper. After taping the negative white diecut over my cardbase, I glued the red and white arcs to my card. Patriotic Thank You shaker card by Andrea Shell | Love Wins stamp by Reverse Confetti I stamped "thank you" from the Sending Smiles stamp set onto my white panel, which I then backed with clear acetate and two layers of foam tape. I placed a mixture of sequins onto my card and sealed them in place with the frame. Finally, I affixed that cute bear with foam squares and brushed on some clear sparkle.

 Hello crafty friends, It's Joy here and I have a beautiful card for you today using the new Large Rainbow Circle, Folklore Cover Panel and A Beautiful Day Stamp and Die. Combining stamped and die cut images makes for a very interesting card design. I hope you enjoy it!
I created a video tutorial for this card project. Click here to watch on YouTube or watch below.
I stamped the beautiful butterflies from A Beautiful Day stamp onto smooth watercolor cardstock and gold heat embossed the images. I used Zig Markers to color the butterflies and then cut them out with the coordinating dies.
I ran the Folklore Cover Panel Die through the die cut machine with white cardstock, then I die cut the Large Rainbow Circle Die from the Folklore background. This gives the circle die some texture. I also die cut the circle die from gold mirror cardstock. Then I stamped the sentiment with black ink from the A Beautiful Day Stamp.
I adhered the circle together adding some of the gold mirror cardstock towards the bottom. I added foam tape behind the circle, butterflies and sentiment to give the whole card dimension. I finished by adding the card panel to a white A2 card base and added some gold sequins.
Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day!
Hugs,
Joy Baldwin

 Hello! I have a birthday card to share with you today using the new Birthday Buddies stamp set. I love making birthday cards and it seems I never can have enough!  I stamped the images onto Neenah 110 lb cardstock and colored with my Copic Markers.  I die cut the images out with the Birthday Buddies Confetti Cuts.

I used the Background Builder to stamp onto the main card panel with the solid circle image using dark teal ink.  I then die cut the panel with the Brilliance Cover Panel.  I die cut a white card panel with the Open Drop Cover Panel and used the oval piece with my card panel.   I stamped a sentiment from Chalk It Up stamp set.  

I used a white gel pen to add some details to the images.  I then finished off the panel with some crystal sequins.   I hope you have a wonderful day!

Hi crafty friends! I'm so happy to be back with a pride card using the amazing Love Wins stamp set. Make sure to check out the video at the bottom of the post!

For this card I stamped the gorgeous bear from the Love Wins stamp set in alcohol marker friendly ink onto Clairefontaine DCP 250 gsm cardstock and colored him in. If you want to see the coloring process, check out the video!

I die cut the Large Rainbow Circle die and inkblended each arch to form a landscape, some green grassy hills and a sky. I also dry embossed that same die onto a scrap of white cardstock. I fussy cut it out and used it to perfectly line the arches up again.

I die cut two basic circle dies out of white cardstock, scored one near the top of it and put glue on the area above the scoreline. Put the other die cut on top of it and voila! A circle cardbase. I glued the Large Rainbow Circle die onto the cardbase and propped the bear up on some foam tape.

To finish it up I added a couple of embellishments and that's it! You can see the full video over on the Reverse Confetti Youtube Channel!

Good Things Floral Card by Andrea Shell | Wildflowers stamp by Reverse Confetti I'm featuring the gorgeous Wildflowers stamp from the May release. This image is so pretty and so fun to color! I stamped it one time onto an A2 panel, masked it, and stamped it again to have it extend across the width of my card. Good Things Floral Card by Andrea Shell | Wildflowers stamp by Reverse Confetti I colored the stamped images with Copics and added a sentiment from the Wildflowers set. Next, I attached the panel to a white card with ScorTape.

I white heat-embossed it, diecut it with the coordinating dies and adhered it to my card, bending up the wings for some dimension. Good Things Floral Card by Andrea Shell | Wildflowers stamp by Reverse Confetti With the Circle Gift Card Holder Confetti Cuts, I created a little surprise on the inside of my card.

ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE (FREE STAMP SET!)

By Jennifer del Muro

Hello Fetti' Fans! April here and I am so excited to be joining the Reverse Confetti team, and to be able to share projects with you on a weekly basis!

Today I am sharing two cards featuring the Free with Purchase stamp for the May Release. It is called the All You Need stamp set, and has three stamps in it. This set will be available starting May 8th, and will be free with any purchase of $60 or more.

For today's card, I started by stamping the solid 'All You Need Is" stamp across an A2 sized white cardstock panel multiple times. I lined up the stamp in my stamping tool at the top of the card panel, and simply moved my card up an inch or so to stamp it a few times. I did this on both the left and right side of the panel until it was full.
Next, I die cut the smaller tag from the Big Confetti Tag Confetti Cuts, that is a part of the new release, from white cardstock. I then stamped the solid 'LOVE' from the stamp set onto the tag twice. First I inked up the L and O, stamped them on top, then inked up the V and E, and stamped them underneath. This was super easy as the letters are a nice space a part, and I didn't have to do any masking!

I also used the Big Confetti Tag set to die cut the confetti bits from red cardstock. To make it easier, I actually left all my confetti bits connected to each other instead of using my wire cutters to snip them apart. This made it easier to die cut all of them at one time, and I simply will save what I don't use for a future project.

The last thing I did before assembling the card was to stamp this cute cat found in the new Love Wins stamp set from the May release, onto Bristol Smooth cardstock with black pigment ink. While the ink was still wet, I added clear embossing powder and heat set the image. Then I colored it in with ZIG clean color markers and cut it out with the coordinating Confetti Cut.
CARD ASSEMBLY
1. I trimmed a quarter inch from the top and bottom of my background panel and adhered it to an A2 white card base.
2. Then, I popped up the tag that I inked 'LOVE' onto with some thin foam tape and adhered it to the right side of the card, letting some hang over across the bottom. I cut off the excess with some sharp scissors.
3. Next, I glued the cute kitty down with liquid glue towards the bottom of the tag
4. I used the hearts from the red confetti bits I cut out earlier to add some little heart bubbles coming from the kitty. I popped these up on small pieces of foam tape.
5. Lastly, I gave the hearts, kitty and 'LOVE' on the tag a once over with a shimmer pen to add some sparkle.

That is it! I really loved using this set to create a background and would love to try it in different colors or create a rainbow effect. Below you will actually find another version of this card I made using teal and red instead of peach ink.





Thank you for joining me today and I hope this post has inspired you to continue creating and to check out the goodies from the recent release. Have an amazing weekend!
