Hello! Olga with you today. I created a card with sparkly title using Mod Floral Stack.


I stamped the elements with Distress Oxide and cut it using Mod Floral Stack Confetti Cuts. I stamped the sentiment "many thanks" on the base of my card.


Then I cut "thanks" from Thanks & Hello Word Duos Confetti Cuts on sparkly cardstock.


I put all details together and decorated my card with drops.
Have a nice day!

WHEN CRABBY IS A GOOD THING

By Reverse Confetti
on August 22, 2019

Hello! Deanne here sharing my *crab-tastic* card with you.

I figured if I were a crab and wanted to get out of the hot sun, I would hang out in the water with a shady umbrella - why not, right??!!

I created the ocean by ombre blending RC Aqua ink onto Cloud White cardstock. I created the water spots by paint brush flickering RC Aqua ink over top of the blending. Next by adding a little white acrylic paint to water and flickering that mixture over top gives the ocean extra depth. 



I coloured the little crab from Let's Shellabrate, and using the coordinating Confetti Cuts, placed him in the water.



I placed the crab next to his trusty shady companion, his umbrella from Hippo Pool Party (with coordinating Confetti Cuts).



Lastly I added a Sentimental Sayings to the bottom center of my card.










WATERCOLORED WOW

Hi It's Jeanne here today! And I'm feeling like a little water coloring! Check out the pretty card I made with the Butterfly Blossoms stamp set! 
I love the contrast of the loose water color background against the crisp Copic colored butterfly in the center of the card.
I created the background by stamping the floral image from the set with Versafine Ink on watercolor paper. You can use whatever water color paint you like. I have two custom palattes filled with my favorite tube colors that I used. Just have fun! 
I added a white card stock wreath and topped it with a die cut butterfly. Alternating patterns with solids helps keep things from getting too busy.
I didn't want to cover up all that pretty water coloring so I added a sentiment on the inside of the card. 
I stamped butterflies with RC Iced Aqua Ink and stamped the sentiment in black. 
The finishing touch was some bling in the flower centers!  I hope you like it!  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

LIVE LIFE IN COLOR

Live life in color!  Hey, Fetti Fans, Kathy here and I'm so happy you stopped by the blog today!
I come from a generation of black and white TV (yep, WAY back then!)  I had no idea Lucille Ball's hair was bright red or that 'somewhere over the rainbow' was in full color.  When we did, finally, get a colored TV, the world came alive!
I love playing with colors!  Working for a local craft store, I've been doing lots of demos and showing customers how to use different mediums and color combos - which is what inspired my card today.  First, I layered a piece of Midnight cardstock onto the card base.  Then, I used the Circle of Hearts Cover Plate cut from Cloud White cardstock.  I blended several distress oxide inks, spritzed with water and added some white paint speckles.  I used the Work of Art stamp set and coordinating dies for the fun, paint-themed images.
 Hope you've been inspired to do something creative today and make your own work of art!

EMBOSS RESIST | I'M THE LUCKIEST

Hello Monday!  Amy here sharing a card using one of my favorite tried and true techniques---emboss resist.  The hardest cards for me to tackle are masculine and sympathy.  This technique could be used for both depending on the sentiment strip you use!

You're the Best 

Using a panel of Premier Polar White Cardstock, I stamped the leaf sprig from Bold Blooms with Versamark Ink all over the panel and clear heat embossed.  I then ink blended Forest Moss, Crushed Olive, and Pine Needles Distress Ink over the panel of embossed leaves.  Once done, I wiped the panel down with a dry paper towel to buff off the embossed leaves.  

You're the Best2

The panel was trimmed to make clean edges.  To keep this simple (whether this is for a sympathy card or masculine), a simple sentiment (from Sentimental Sayings) was white heat embossed onto a vellum strip and wrapped around the panel.

You're the Best3

TIME TO GET SPOOKY

By Reverse Confetti
on August 16, 2019

The school year has started and the end of summer is near.  What better way to say goodbye to the long summer days than with a sale!  Time to grab those wish list items once and for all, stock up on paper and ink and maybe get a gift or two while you're shopping for yourself.  Enjoy 20% off today through Sunday.

Hello there!  Audrey here with a fun Halloween card to share with you!  Although the Halloween  holiday itself is my least favorite holiday, I really do love creating cute little cards and treats for family and friends.  Anything super scary is not my thing, but Reverse Confetti has an assortment of Halloween goodies that are just too cute to spook!
To create my card, I pulled out a few of  my favorites, Frightening Friends and Best Witches.  I started off with an A2 card base cut from Polar White card stock.  To that, I added some patterned papers in Halloween colors from the Cue the Confetti paper pad. To ground my little scene, I diecut the second smallest Pierced Round Top Layers Confetti Cuts from some fun purple polka dot paper found in the Darling Dots paper pad, and popped that up with foam tape, on the right side of the card front.
Halloween Hello

I stamped and colored several images from the Frightening Friends stamp including the Frankenstein, tree, jack-o-lantern, moon and clouds.  I diecut them with the coordinating Frightening Friends Confetti Cuts dies.  To add a little more balance to the left side of the card, I stamped and colored the little bat from the Best Witches stamp set, diecut him with the coordinating Best Witches Confetti Cuts dies, and popped him up to the left of the tree, slightly overhanging the arched panel to draw the eye across the entire card.
Halloween Hello

Underneath the little scene, I stamped a sentiment from the Frightening Friends stamp set in Midnight ink.  I stamped a scattering of stars from the Best Witches stamp set, then added some white gel pen accents to finish off my card.
Halloween Hello
That's all for me today!  Thanks so much for stopping by! :)

Hello Fetti Fans! The stock Your Stash Challenge Theme this month is "Wedding" and I wanted to do a pretty but modern card for some inspiration this month. If you'd like to join in head to the Reverse Confetti Blog for more details and click on the "play to win" button- we'd love you to join us! You could win a $20 gift voucher!
I've used the Cake and Champagne Stamp set to create this card (along with some more flowers from the Happy Mail set). I've also used the Love Duos Confetti Cut and the Stitched Rays Cover Panel.

This is a quick card with minimal colouring. I've used Rose Gold WOW embossing powder and Copics BG34, BG23 and BG11 to colour the images.  I used Nuvo Glimmer Paste on the Love die and Kindy Glitz on the flowers to add some 'sparkle'. I adhered all to a front panel die cut with the Stitched Rays Cover Panel.
Simple and pretty! Hope you can join us for the SYS challenge this month - don't forget to link you projects on the blog and #syschallenge!

This month's Reverse Confetti Stock Your Stash theme is Wedding! It is definitely wedding season, so it is always nice to have some on hand! For today's card, I wanted to keep it simple and classy, yet have some bridal flair! I decided to use the Pattern Hearts stamp set embossed in silver as the main focal point of this simple design. Once it was embossed, I used the coordinating Pattern Hearts Confetti Cuts to cut it out.

I added it to the center portion of the Stitched Note Frames Confetti Cuts using foam squares for dimension. I layered that onto a piece of pink polka dot paper that is from the ever-adorable Darling Dots 6 by 6 paper pad that measures 4 by 5 1/4 inches; this is the perfect size to give a nice white border when it is added to a standard A2 card base, like I did here!
I've been having so much fun coloring some of the newer floral sets, but I love the romantic feel of these leaves and flowers from the Elegant Florals stamp set. I used these to frame the heart piece using foam squares. 

The sentiment is from the Mod Floral Stack stamp set and is stamped in black. I added it over the heart using foam squares. A few sparkling clear sequins finish off this simple design.

I don't actually have too many wedding/bridal stamp sets or sentiments, but I find that having a few basics, like I have shown today, really gets the job done! It is easy to change the feeling of the card by just changing up the colors, especially if you know the theme of the wedding! I hope you get a chance to Stock Your Stash this month!

Good morning! Heather here this morning with a new edition of Wednesday in the Works! Today I'm sharing a uniquely shaped triangle card! It features lots of fun lemonade images and a bright sunny inked background as well!


Here is the video sharing how this card came together:



The base of the card is quite easy to create - and as I mention in the video, it will fit in a 5x5 envelope as well if you want to be able to give it or mail it!



I love all these darling images from the Lemonade Stand stamp set - the little critters are darling! A bit of background inking with Bumblebee Dye Ink is the perfect background for this fun scene as well!


Thanks so much for stopping by today - have a wonderful day!!!


LUNCH BOX NOTES

 Hello Fetti Friends! It's Lisa Henke and I'm happy to have another day to share a project with you all here on the RC blog. Welcome. Sadly, for us here in Ohio and many of you all as well, summer is winding down and school is starting. While I love the routine for my family, I really do get sad when my boys head back to school. I eased the pain a bit with some crafty time to create a trio of small little note cards to slip into their lunches this year. It is a small thing that can bring a smile to their face and hopefully brighten their day. Of course a little post it note works too, but why not step it up a notch and put our stamping supplies to good use. 




I started with a few different sets from Reverse Confetti and used the second largest Stitched Square Confetti Cut for the base on each of them. I used Stone, Mist, and Premium Polar White card stock. 

I changed each card up and kept them on the simple side, I added an stamped image and sentiment to all of them. You can really make them as elaborate or as simple as you'd like. I gave a simple version with the turtle, not coloring and only using ink and stamps. I left the backsides blank so I could write a little note if I choose to. 

First up is the turtle from Let's Shellabrate. I stamped him in navy ink  and then did an ombre' color combo stamping the same sentiment, from So Many Sentiments, repeatedly stacked on top of each other. I used Stone, Mist, Baby Blue, and Navy inks. 


Next one I started with a quick stenciled background in Bumblebee ink and the Split Circle Cover Panel. I then colored up the cutie-pie frogs from Spring Pals. The sentiment on this one is from So Many Sayings

And because I love dogs and so do my boys, I used the Super pup from So Super stamp set. I did a quick ink blend with Bumblebee ink and then stamped the solid cityscape along the bottom in Midnight  ink. 


There are so many ways you can create your own set of lunchbox notes. Pick one stamp set or combine a handful from your stash. It's a great way to use up smaller pieces of card stock or even pattern paper you have laying around. The power of a hand written note is priceless! Send them off to school with a hug, a paper hug!

LEMONADE FRIENDS

Hello and Happy Monday!  This is Amy Tsuruta sharing a card and giftie duo that features a couple of the July Release products.


My card features the Lemonade Stand and Hippo Pool Party stamps and coordinating confetti cuts.  If you hopped along with us last week, you'll notice that I altered another Mini Clear Box.

I'm smitten with the Flamingo | Tangerine | Buttercup Color trio, how about you?  It screams summer and happiness to me.  Let's chat about my card first.


I split up my main Premier Polar White panel into two and added a pattern panel from the Sun & Sea 6x6 Paper Pad.  I went ahead and stamped the sentiment from Lemonade Stand onto my card front and then started working on the images.


The critters in the Lemonade Stand set are just too cute!  I stayed with a similar copic color palette throughout my project.  Love how the confetti cut for the actual lemonade stand cuts the interior too.


Here's a photo of the top of the Mini Clear Box.  It's been filled with a movie time box of Lemonhead candy.  I used the tag and circle from the Scalloped Bag & Tags set.  The tag has been cut from Flamingo cardstock.   The twine is from my stash.


I created a scenery on the front of the Mini Clear Box with images from the Hippo Pool Party set.  I colored a sentiment strip with coordinating copics and stamped a sentiment from the Lemonade Stand set.


This is perfect for a friend I'll be seeing in the next couple of weeks!  

I hope you have an amazing week!
