MAKIN' A SPLASH

Thanks for stopping by! Jeanne here today! I love to make cards and my absolute favorites are those that create a scene.
Doesn't this look like a snapshot from the beach? A perfect summer day captured? The details are what brings a scene to life. The Hippo Pool Party has all the accessories that steal the show. A towel, umbrella, tote bag, beach ball and even sunglasses for Ms. Hippo!
The background is simple to create. I cut waves from scrap paper and used them as a mask to ink the sand and sky with distress ink. A good splatter of water adds some texture so it doesn't appear "flat".
Not a cloud in the sky today! Just a sunny sky cut with the Over the Rainbow sun. The sentiment is stamped directly on the distress ink background. 
Have fun making scenes with all the different Reverse Confetti images - there are so many to choose from that the possibilities are endless!

BUT SO ARE YOU

Good morning! Heather here this morning with a simple one layer card to share with you using the brand new July Reverse Confetti Release! I just got back from a long vacation, and jet lag has seemed to take it's toll, leaving me with a bit of crafter's block for some reason! But the beautiful Butterfly Blossoms and Sentimental Sayings kind of do all the work for you - and coloring is relaxing and easy, so it was the perfect way to kick start my crafting again! Not to mention...I have the perfect friend to pass this onto. While we were on vacation, she delivered her beautiful baby girl 6 weeks early, and is currently spending her days at the NICU working to get her strong enough to come home with them. So this is the perfect reminder for her!


I stamped my image and sentiment on a simple white cardbase, then just pulled out a variety of Copic markers to color the image in. This image is absolutely stunning, and so fun to color! In case you're interested, the Copic colors I used are: RV21, R32, YR02, YR82, Y11, Y21, YG01, YG03, B00, B02, B05, W0, and W1.


This is a nice flat and easy to mail card as well - although I do plan to hand deliver it!


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



SOMETHING SPECIAL

What do you give someone special who has everything?  One of my best friends and I have known each other for almost 40 years and always make it a priority to celebrate our birthdays with dinner and a thoughtful gift.  This year, I decided to make her something special instead of buying a gift.
I made this card folder from scratch (with a lot of trial and error!); the two pockets contain 5 cards and coordinating envelopes featuring Butterfly Blossoms, Happy Mail, and Sentimental Sayings from the new July release! Scroll through to see each of the cards and the products I used...
 
 For the folder, I used pattern papers from Cue the Confetti, Darling Dots and Sweet Stripes.  I also filled the RSVP pen cylinder with pattern paper too. This project was a labor of love and I hope my friend likes it!

Here's the is month's theme once again, followed by a bit of inspiration from our Confetti Crew...
. . . . .
Hello!  Amy K. here with a card for the current Stock Your Stash Challenge that features a BABY theme this month!  
 
I used the All About Ewe and Spring Pals stamp sets.  It was fun to combine elements from different sets for a darling "Bundle of Joy" card.  I added a strip of pattern paper from Pattern Play to a white note card along with a tiny strip of kraft cardstock.
 
SYS Challenge Baby
 
I colored my images with Copics and die cut using the coordinating dies.  My critters were added to a Grid Stitched Tag Confetti Cuts that was ink blended with Salty Ocean Distress Ink.  To finish my scene, I added some die cut clouds and a sun from the Sun 'n Clouds Confetti Cuts.  For a simple sentiment, I masked off part of the sentiment from Sentimental Sayings and stamped in black ink.

Hello there!  Audrey here!  I have a card to share with you for the July Stock Your Stash Challenge!  The theme for July is Baby!

To create my card, I started off with a piece of Mist cardstock, cut to A2 size.  On top of that, I layered the Big Chevies Cover Panel Confetti Cuts die cut from Baby Blue cardstock.  For my focal point, I stamped the mommy and baby koala from the Bear Hugs stamp set, which I colored with copic markers then added shading and detail with my Prismacolor pencils.  It was diecut with the coordinating Bear Hugs Confetti Cuts dies.

July SYS 1

To ground my image, I diecut the smaller square from the Scalloped Squares Confetti Cuts dies from white cardstock and popped it up with foam tape, and I centered my bears in the square and popped them up too.  I stamped a sentfrom the Bear Hugs stamp set onto a stripe of Baby Blue cardstock and adhered that under my little scene with foam tape.

MAIN SQUEEZE

Hello, Hello! It's Lisa Henke here and I'm honored to be posting here on the RC blog. I am still loving all the new release products and this new set, Lemonade Stand hasn't left my desk. The funny thing is this card was inspired by the pile of teeny Mist hearts that were left on desk from the Circle of Hearts Cover Panel. I knew I wanted to put them in a shaker card, so I did!



Here is a close up of the pile of teeny hearts inspiration.  



I cut the See Through Tag Confetti Cuts in Buttercup card stock. I used the large solid circle from Circles 'nScallops Confetti Cuts to line the opening with some clear acetate. I also colored up the lion and zebra from Lemonade Stand and I also colored up the lemons and cut lemon pieces. I used the little bits from the set to fill in the shaker card element with some sequins. I ended up gluing down the lemon bits because I didn't want them flipping around and upside down inside the shaker. 





After I colored up the lion and zebra, I used the matching Lemonade Stand Confetti Cuts to cut them out. I used some foam dimensionals to pop them on along the bottom of the tag. The sentiment is from the set and I heat embossed it in white on Midnight card stock. I made this for my hubby. He's my main squeeze and we just celebrated our 19th Anniversary. 


Thanks for stopping by today. 

and here is a look at the New Products I used on today's projects. 







Let's Shellabrate

Hello and Happy Friday Eve!  This is Amy Tsuruta sharing a project that features some of the new July Release products.


The Let's Shellabrate stamps + coordinating confetti cuts are so much fun.  I did a bit of a scenery.  All images have been stamped on Premier Polar White Cardstock and colored with copics.  

Can we chat about the Bubbles confetti cut?  I've been loving it!  I haven't used it in its entirety, I've been trimming it down to fit the space I want.


This project has 3 layers of cardstock:

Premier Polar White   |   Stone   |    Mist



Not necessarily a postal friendly design.  All the die cut images with the exception of the fence posts are on foam dimensionals.   I'm such a fan of nautical designs.   

What are your favorites from the July Release?

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I have a card to share with you today that uses the new BUTTERFLY BLOSSOMS stamps and Confetti Cuts along with the new SENTIMENTAL SAYINGS stamp set.
 
I started with a card base created from our PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock.  I then stamped the butterfly image from the BUTTERFLY BLOSSOMS stamp set on a PREMIER POLAR WHITE panel in VersaMark and added clear embossing powder.  I love the subtle shimmer that it gives behind the brightly colored butterfly.
 
 
 
The main image butterfly is stamped on CLOUD WHITE cardstock and then heat embossed with black detail embossing powder.  I colored it using Zig watercolor brush pens and I added a little Sakura Stardust glitter pen to add a nice detail to the wings.
 
 
This is my favorite sentiment from the new SENTIMENTAL SAYINGS stamp set.  I stamped it in MIDNIGHT ink on the PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock panel.

The rest of the Confetti Crew and our 'Fetti Friends have a lot to share with you today.  Have fun hopping along!

SENTIMENTAL SAYINGS

BOLD BLOOMS

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...
. . . . .
I have 2 cards to share with you today, both combining SENTIMENTAL SAYINGS with the BOLD BLOOMS set.
This first card features one of the large flowers stamped multiple times in NAVY, ROYAL PURPLE and BABY BLUE and cut out and layered over the new CIRCLE OF HEARTS Cover Panel which has a ROYAL PURPLE layer under it.
Each flower is also stamped with the detail stamp in white pigment ink. You'll notice that this set features both solid and detail images so that you can create lots of different styles and color combinations.
The sentiment, from the new SENTIMENTAL SAYINGS stamp set, is stamped in ROYAL PURPLE.
In addition to all of the flowers, there are also several leaves in the BOLD BLOOMS stamp set.  I stamped these in OLIVE and layered under the flower images.  As a finishing touch, I added the rhinestones layered with silver enamel dots.
. . . . .
My second card today also uses the new BOLD BLOOMS paired with the new SENTIMENTAL SAYINGS stamp sets, along with the previously released LEAF LATTICE Cover Panel...
The LEAF LATTICE Cover Panel is cut from LEAD cardstock and layered over a panel of STORMY cardstock.  I love the darker colors of the base make the flowers and sentiment pop!
I really enjoyed picking the color combinations for these flowers and leaves!  The big flower is stamped in SUNSHINE and TANGERINE inks.  The smaller, tulip-like flower is stamped with PEACH and MAGENTA ink.  Finally, the leaves are stamped with a combination of LIME GREEN and AVOCADO inks.
The sentiment is stamped in MIDNIGHT ink on a PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock panel that is layered with STORMY cardstock.  The sequins were already on my desk and made the perfect finishing touch for this card, too!
. . . . .

I'm happy to send you on your way to see what these very talented ladies have to share with you today.  Be sure to leave a little love on each of their posts and you may just win a gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store (yay, new release spending money!)

Hello 'Fetti Fans and welcome to DAY 2 of the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI!

We kicked off the countdown yesterday with a couple of gorgeous introductions and today we are featuring THREE new sets of the that you all love so very much.

Before we get to all of our introductions, here is a recap of what is happening here at Reverse Confetti during the next few days...

. . . . .
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…
On Facebook, simply leave a comment under the graphic.  One person that comments on the graphic by 1pm EST on JULY 7th will be randomly chosen to win a $15 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store.  Winners for both the blog comments and Facebook comments will be announced here on the Reverse Confetti blog as well as on Facebook.
. . . . .
In addition to the critter sets we will introducing today, we also have a couple fabulous stand alone Confetti Cuts die sets...

POOL

BUBBLES

These dies are so much fun to play with and pair perfectly with this new stamp set...

HIPPO POOL PARTY

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...
. . . . .
For this card, I cut the BUBBLES Confetti Cuts from both PREMIER POLAR WHITE and RC AQUA cardstock and then layered them together, slightly offset.
The images from the HIPPO POOL PARTY set are stamped on PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  I trimmed the hippo a little bit and made a small slit on the chin so that it could float inside of the unicorn.
The sentiment was originally going to go all the way across the card below the pool, but when I was arranging all the pieces I placed it above the hippo and really liked how it looked.  I flag ended each end and popped it up a little over the umbrella.
The hippo and the float are in the new POOL Confetti Cuts die cut that has small detail "wave" cuts.  This is a 2 piece die set which will create the water for the pool and the coping around the pool.
Finally, I added a couple sequins as a finishing touch.
. . . . .
The next introduction is a fun seaside themed set with lots of quippy sentiments to coordinate with the images...

LET'S SHELLABRATE

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...
This card scene was really fun to build!  All of the images are watercolored with Zig watercolor brush pens. 
The CRISS CROSS Cover Panel is under the main image panel.  I really wanted a texture to the "sand" portion, but didn't want any glitter, or the like, on it.  I started digging through my drawers and came across my crimper...which I can't believe that I still have after all these years.  It ended up being the perfect way to create the texture I was going for on this card!
. . . . .
Our final introduction today is a quintessential summer set...

LEMONADE STAND

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...
I was really inspired by a black and white lemonade stand that I saw online and created this card with it in mind...
The images from the LEMONADE STAND set are colored with Copic markers.  Like the other two sets from today, this set is a lot of fun to play around with and create cute scenes. 
I started with a 4.25" square card base and then layer the DIAGONAL STITCHES Cover Panel cut (Premier Polar White cardstock) and the STITCHED SQUARES cut (Sunshine cardstock).  The grass is from the NUTS ABOUT YOU Confetti Cuts die set (cut from Lime Green cardstock).  The clouds are from the stand alone SUN 'N CLOUDS Confetti cuts die set.
I popped the images up using glue dots and adhered the sentiment panel above the lemonade stand, tucking it under the stitched square frame.
. . . . .

Now it's time for me to send you on your way to see what all of the Confetti Crew and our 'Fetti Friends have created to share with you today.  Be sure to leave a comment for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store.
