. . . . .
I'm going to start with ALL of today's introductions.  This is because I have mixed and matched these and it will be a little confusing if I don't just put them all out here from the start.  I am so in love with the beauty of the sets that we are introducing today!

BEAUTIFUL BALLOONS

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...
. . . . .

HAVE YOUR CAKE

This is a super fun set where you can build your own cake.  Keep it simple with just one layer or pile it a mile high!
Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...
. . . . .
One last intro before I share all my projects with you today.  This one has been a long time coming and I am so happy to say that we have finally added an alphabet die set to our Confetti Cuts collection...

LETTER CUTS

 . . . . .
My first project that I am going to share with you today uses a combination of the CELEBRATE TAG Confetti Cuts die set (introduced yesterday), BEAUTIFUL BALLOONS and LETTER CUTS...
Tish is my sweet friend and neighbor that lives across the street from me.  She loves her plants and flowers!  Her birthday is coming up and this tag will be added to her gift (a hanging potted plant - not yet purchased).
I started with 3 cuts of the CELEBRATE TAG - two from PREMIER POLAR WHITE, one of which is stamped with the sentiment (BEAUTIFUL BALLOONS) and one that is cut down and adhered to the center. The third is cut from ICED AQUA which is stamped in ICED AQUA ink with the separate floral image from the BEAUTIFUL BALLOONS stamp set.
The floral image is also stamped twice in ICED AQUA ink and colored with Copics and placed on either side of her name.  The letters are cut 3x each for added dimension.  One of the layers is actually stamped tone on tone with the floral image, but it was a bit too busy so I went with the plain letters in the end. The top and bottom portion of the tag have strips of SUNSHINE cardstock.  The top has a bit of twine tied to it for a finishing touch.
. . . . .
Next up is another project that uses the BEAUTIFUL BALLOONS stamp set, along with the new OVAL WINDOW COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts die set (introduced yesterday)...
As always (or so it seems), I started with a card base created from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock. I then layered a panel cut from ICED AQUA cardstock and then added the OVAL WINDOW COVER PANEL.
The balloon images are colored with Karin Brush Markers (I love how vibrant these balloons and flowers turned out!).  The strings are stamped in MIDNIGHT ink, as is the sentiment that is on a panel going across the bottom of the card.  I added a strip of MIDNIGHT cardstock (also cut with the OVAL WINDOW COVER PANEL) to the very bottom for a little extra detail and to "ground" the card.
. . . . .
I just love having a little bit of flexibility to create with some stamp sets, like the new HAVE YOUR CAKE set!  There are so many possibilities with this set.  Ironically, I did cards both with 3 tier cakes (LOL!).
Here's the first of the 3 tiered wonders I created...
This card combines a few different Reverse Confetti products...as mentioned above, it uses the new HAVE YOUR CAKE stamps and Confetti Cuts die set.  In addition, it also uses a sentiment from the BEAUTIFUL BALLOONS stamp set. You'll also recognize the new CELEBRATE TAG and the previously released ALONG THE DOTTED LINE COVER PANEL.
The cake is created with a combination of RC AQUA and ICED AQUA.  The dot detail on the cake is heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I love this subtle detail!  I used the same dots on the strips of cardstock behind the main image panel.
The small floral image and candles are stamped with RC Aqua ink and colored with Copics.  I used a few sequins for a finishing touch.
. . . . .
While I couldn't bear to put away the aqua colored Copics, my next card definitely follows a different color scheme. 
I had the idea to use MIDNIGHT cardstock and embossing powder while doing Tish's tag.  I'm pretty happy with the way this came out...what do you think?
Again, I started with a PREMIER POLAR WHITE card base.  From there, I added (popped up on dimensional adhesive) the MIDNIGHT layer that is cut from the OVAL WINDOW COVER PANEL and stamped with the floral image from the BEAUTIFUL BALLOONS stamp set with VersaMark and used clear embossing powder to create this beautiful tone on tone glossy detail.
I added the MIDNIGHT cardstock oval directly to the cardbase and then layered the smaller oval, cut from LEAD cardstock.  The sentiment stamped on the LEAD layer is from the BEAUTIFUL BALLOONS stamp set.  I cut apart the "let's celebrate you" sentiment and simply used the word "celebrate" at a diagonal.
The cake image has clear embossed detailing and floral images that are colored with Copics.
. . . . .

Thanks for joining me here today.  The Confetti Crew and our fabulous 'Fetti Friends have lots to share with you today! Remember to leave a little love along the way for a chance to win!

Greetings, 'Fetti Fam! Today starts the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI for our May 8th release, which is also our 8th BIRTHDAY! This release is full of celebration styles and there's definitely something for everyone...from cute, to floral/artsy to clean and simple, we have it all! Here's a look at our countdown schedule...

 
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…

. . . . .
It's been an amazing 8 years and I am over the moon about this release!  There is definitely a focus on CELEBRATION, which is exactly what you should do for a birthday, right?!?
It's time to grab that cuppa and celebrate with us!
To help celebrate our birthday, we are offering a new FREE WITH PURCHASE stamp set.  This stamp set will be sent to you at no charge when you make a purchase of $60+ (prior to adding this set) AND add it to your cart.  All details will be on the product page.  We've also brought back our previous FREE WITH PURCHASE SETS in case you missed out on those (one per order).
. . . . .
The first of our "regular" introductions is a stand alone die.  You know I love tags (and I know you do, too!) and being that you must have a tag on your birthday gifts, I thought this would be just perfect...

CELEBRATE TAG

This Confetti Cuts die set features a large tag along with the outline and the letters for the word "CELEBRATE," as well as an circle/hole detail die.
I have a few tags to share with you today, but before I get to all of them, let me introduce you to another fabulous layering word Confetti Cuts die set...

HAPPY

And, the coordinating stamp set...
My first project that I get to share with you today is a trio of tags that uses all three of the products above.
The color scheme for this tag set is: Premier Polar White, RC Aqua, Tangering, Sunshine, Lime Green along with Midnight ink.
I started by cutting the CELEBRATE TAG Confetti Cuts die from Premier Polar White.  From there, I cut FOUR of the outline "HAPPY" and then each of the letters from the various colors. 
I then cut tags from RC Aqua, Lime Green and Sunshine and trimmed off the top and added it to the white tags along the with hole detail.
I stamped "birthday to you" in Midnight ink and then layered the outline Happy cuts along with the colored letters. 
The tags are finished off with some ribbons and twine from my stash.
. . . . .
Graduation season is upon us and with that theme in mind, I created this set of tags using the colors of our local high school...
I started with the tags cut from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock. I added the sentiment, stamped in MIDNIGHT on STONE cardstock, to the bottom portion of the tag.
The outline of the word CELEBRATE is cut from SALSA cardstock twice for added dimension and the individual letters are cut from MIDNIGHT cardstock.
The star detail is from the Spookatacular stamps/Confetti Cuts.
As with the tags above, ribbon and twine was added to the top.
I love the way these came out and I can't wait to see them added to graduation gifts!
. . . . .
Next up in our introductions is a beautiful floral set.  To tell you the truth, I don't know what I love more...the images or the sentiments!

CUP OF FRIENDSHIP

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...
And, one more introduction before I get to my cards using this fabulous set...

OVAL WINDOW COVER PANEL

. . . . .
My first card below uses the new CUP OF FRIENDSHIP stamps and Confetti Cuts dies along with the new OVAL WINDOW COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts...
For this card, I started with a base cut from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock.  From there, I layered a panel cut with the STITCHED RAYS COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts die (also from Premier Polar White cardstock).
The main image panel is the larger oval (the inside of the window) of the OVAL WINDOW COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts.  I stamped the "hello" sentiment in MIDNIGHT ink in the center.
I stamped, colored (Copic) and cut the long floral image with the scalloped edge detailing twice and popped them up above and below the sentiment.
. . . . .
And, before I send you on your way, I have just one more project to share with you.  This little gift card holder features our new FREE WITH PURCHASE stamp set, HOORAY. 
I started with a PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock panel that measured 4.25" x 5.5" and then stamped the word "HOORAY" along with the "OH, HAPPY DAY" sentiment on a diagonal.  I did this using a lined acrylic block.  From there, I cut it using the SCALLOPED BAG & TAGS CREATOR Confetti Cuts die set.  I also cut a separate panel from PREMIER POLAR WHITE using the same die for the "back" of the bag. I scored the bottom of each panel and then adhered them together, creating my "bag."
Inside is a handwritten note along with a gift card that I added (with strong tape runner!).
. . . . .

That's all for today here, but the Confetti Crew and our 'Fetti Friends have lots to share with you today. Leave a little love along the way for a chance to win! The COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI continues tomorrow. See you then!

'FETTI FRIENDS
Hello, 'Fetti Fam!  We are getting ready to kick off the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI here in just a couple days!  It's our 8th birthday release and we are super excited about it!  With a new release also comes new 'Fetti Friends (guest designers) for May and June.  Please join me in welcoming these fabulous designers...
Hi, everyone! I’m Emily Leiphart and I’m thrilled to be a ‘Fetti Friend with Reverse Confetti this month! My husband and I have been married for 17 years and we have a very energetic, outgoing and creative 12-year-old son. I love drinking coffee and wine, practicing yoga, reading, binge watching TV shows, shopping and long walks. My favourite paper crafting projects are cards, tags and treat packaging. I’m a huge fan of Reverse Confetti’s beautiful and whimsical products and I look forward to sharing my projects with you!

 

 

. . . . .
Hello, I’m Leica (pronounced “lie-kuh”) and I live in Southern California with my husband, our 10 year old daughter, 2 guinea pigs, and our 15 year old Pekingese. As a little girl, I enjoyed making cards and other paper crafts for my dad who lived overseas. I have always loved cardmaking,  but was never good at drawing. So when I found out about clear stamps that I can color, I was hooked! My favorite images to include in my cards are adorable critters and flowers. I’m honored and grateful to be invited as a ‘Fetti Friend and I hope you’ll enjoy my cards.
. . . . .

Hi there, I’m Norine Borys, a Canadian living in the USA and I am happiest when playing with paper or stamps or ink or paint or fabric or yarn or frosting!  (Or my grandchildren.  But that’s a different topic!)  There has never been a time when I didn’t love to craft and so it has been the undercurrent of my entire life.  When my children were small, I owned and operated a small craft business (pre-Etsy), taught art at middle school and am now on a number of paper crafting design teams.  We have raised 4 children and are now rewarded for our efforts with the above mentioned grandchildren.  I’ve been married to the same long-suffering man for almost 40 years and his devotion makes everything alright.    I always expected that an empty nest would mean so much more time to be crafty, which hasn’t exactly happened like I pictured, but which is also why I love card making the most!  The smaller canvas size means quickly finished projects and with the variety of techniques and styles and with companies like Reverse Confetti providing amazing and creative products, I will never get bored!

MAY STOCK YOUR STASH

 

Hi friends! Are you ready for a Party? This month at Reverse Confetti the Stock Your Stash Challenge Theme is BIRTHDAY!!

I'd like to say spring is in the air, but it's more like a mix of spring one minute and winter (still/again!) the next.  If you're in Texas, I know you can relate.  I am sure Mother Nature is playing fun games like this elsewhere, too! Anywhooo...

Some things to note about this challenge...
There will be a new Stock Your Stash challenge posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 1st of each month.
The SYS link list will be open from the 1st until noon CST on the 29th of the month. Click the "Play Along..." button on our sidebar to go current link list post.
Reverse Confetti stamps and/or Confetti Cuts are required to win.  This is a way we get to thank our customers for using our stamps.  Anyone is welcome to play, though!
You may enter as many times as you wish.
Use #SYSChallenge when playing along with this challenge.
There will be a random winner selected each month and that person will receive a $20 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store. The winner of challenge will be posted on the Reverse Confetti blog at the end of the month. 
. . . . .
I love the challenge because it's a great way to see my favorite Reverse Confetti Stamps and Dies in action, and when you play along you not only have another great card added to your stash for sending, but you're also entered to win a gift certificate to the store.
I'm playing along with the Party Pals stamp set and coordinating dies. I love all the cute animals in this set and just couldn't decide on a favorite so I USED THEM ALL!!!!
These cuties each have their own personality!  I arranged them on a panel that is inked with Distress Oxide in Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin and Candied Apple.

If you look close you'll see that some of the images are adhered flat on the card base while others are adhered with adhesive foam tape. This adds dimension and helps bring the scene to life.

I sure hope you'll join me for this challenge! I can't wait to see what you make!


Finished Size 4.25 x 5.5"

I am so glad it is May and flowers are sprouting up all around my backyard making me super happy! The May Stock Your Stash theme this month is Birthday and I made a fun card with some beautiful flowers and adorable bear to brighten it up!

I used these Reverse Confetti products for my design:

I began my card with a 5 x 6 1/2 card base.

For the background, I first inked a piece of Bristol Smooth with mermaid lagoon, peacock feathers, and cracked pistachio, die cut it with the Pointed Cover Panel and adhered to the center of my card front.

Next, I stamped the flowers, bear and knitting, colored them with copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I then glued the flower cluster onto the stitched frame and tucked the bear behind the green banner with the sentiment. I finished with a few pink gems!

Now I look forward to see your birthday projects for this month's Stock Your Stash!

. . . . .

Show us your BIRTHDAY themed cards for a chance to win!

Hi friends! Surprise! Nope this isn't a new set! It's an old favorite that I'm revisiting today! While techniques and trends have changed these cute images remain frozen in time ready to be reimagined.
My card features the No Tomorrow stamp set. I've colored the images with Copic Markers and layered them on a Distress Oxide Ink background panel.

My cards always start with the images arranged on a piece of clear plastic the size of my card front. This helps me decide what to place where. I always stamp extra "accessory" images like the greenery so I can add more detail to a scene.
I added silly eyes to the dinosaurs and some Glossy Accents to the spots on the dinosaurs. The little details bring them to life. A little Swirlie makes a primordial sunshine.
I hope I've inspired you to revisit one of your favorite Reverse Confetti sets and reimagine it in a new way.

I used Tangerine cardstock and layered the Big Flowers Cover Panel on it - a beautiful bright start! Next I blended Coral ink (which had a little Magenta ink on the blender, so a bit of a custom colour!) on the Stitched Hex Tag and added it to the middle of my card. I coloured, sparkled and adhered Orange Blossoms to the tag.



Next I blended Tangerine ink on the Hope Confetti Cut and added a little handmade label with a sentiment from the Hope Coordinates. Lastly I added a colour coordinating bow and enamel dots.


 



  


  


  




CRAFTINESS IS HAPPINESS

By Jennifer del Muro
on April 28, 2021

Hey, hey, it's Lisa Henke here today and I am excited to share a sweet little shaped card that is easy to create. I started with the Lacy Scalloped Circle Confetti Cut and cut it twice. The first time on a single layer of Polar White card stock and then a second time from a folded 4.25 square card. The single layer cut circle gets attached to the top of the folded circle cut piece. The cool thing is,  you an do this technique with just about any shaped die. 


Here you can see that I placed the die just a bit over the top of the fold. I use a bit of Purple tape to hold it in place. 


I then got to work coloring up the bunny from Crafty Critters and the rainbow from Rain or Shine. I stamped the rainbow directly onto the card front and colored it up with copics. I used the Crafty Critters Confetti Cuts to cut out the bunny. 


I tucked in a pair of clouds from the Cloudy Days Cover Panel, and stamped the sentiment in Midnight ink. 

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you'll try a shaped card soon. It had been awhile since I created one, but it was so fun to make.
Hugs, Lisa! 


LUV YOU

Hey there!  Tricia here with you today to share this Mother's Day card!  I used Chalk It Up and Girl Power for my card today.  


I love to create scene cards and a slimline design will allow you to add more images than a traditional A2 card.  The size of my panel is 3 1/2 inches by 8 1/4 inches.   I ink blended with Lagoon ink onto Bristol Smooth cardstock.  For the bottom of the panel, I used Lime Green.   I then used the partial die cutting technique to die cut the panel with the Along the Dotted Line Cover Panel.   


I stamped my images from Chalk It Up and Girl Power onto Premier Polar White cardstock and then colored with my Copic markers.  I die cut the images out with the Chalk It Up Confetti Cuts and Girl Power Confetti Cuts.  


I die cut the Over the Rainbow Confetti Cuts from white cardstock and then colored the rainbow with my Copic markers.   This added the perfect pop of color to the panel!  


I die cut the sun from from Bumblebee cardstock using the Over the Rainbow Confetti Cuts.   I then die cut the word mom from the Mom & Dad Word Duos from white and Iced Aqua cardstock multiple times and then stacked them together. I added mom over the sun.

I hope you have a wonderful day! 

SENDING HUGS

By Reverse Confetti
on April 23, 2021

Hello!  Amy Kolling here today.
  I have been having fun pulling out some older stamps to play with.  I challenge you to pull out some of the older Reverse Confetti and create!




  One of my favorites is the Multi-Step Cacti.  These stamps are two-step and are so easy to line up!  I stamped, die cut, and arranged my grouping as I wanted.  Using Press 'n Seal, I picked up my images in the layout I wanted.  I set this aside to work on the background.

The background was done by masking off the edges and ink blending Bumblebee Reverse Confetti Ink darker at the edges and lighter in the center.  While the mask was still in place, white and black ink was splattered across the card.  The cacti grouping was adhered with foam adhesive and a sentiment was stamped from Sentimentally Yours in bold black ink.
