FLORAL CARD

By Reverse Confetti
on June 02, 2020
Hi friends! It's Jeanne here today and I hope you're having a great day! I am so glad the days are getting warmer so I can spend more time outdoors. And while we are doing many things the same - staying home and social distancing the garden is a wonderful change of scenery. My yard has many perennials that are starting to bloom - iris, peony and clematis to name a few.
The beautiful flowers inspired me to color the BEST DAYS stamp set in a rainbow of colors - a feast for the eyes!
This card started with the split background. A 1 1/2" panel of mimosa coral pattern paper from the FOREVER MY LOVE pad is on the left edge of the card. The right half is 2 3/4" of a DIAGONAL SCALLOPS die cut panel backed with some matching DARLING DOTS paper.
Half of a LACY SCALLOP CIRCLE is adhered to the right half of the card and topped with a floral bouquet colored with Copic Markers. A few enamel dots add more color and a bit of shine to the design. 
I hope you find happiness in the little things and the sun is shining wherever you are! Finished Size 4.25 x 5.5" Stamps | Reverse Confetti Best Days Dies | Reverse Confetti Best Days, Lacy Scallop Circle, Diagonal Scallops Panel Pattern Paper | Reverse Confetti Forever My Love, Darling Dots

Hey there!  Tricia here to share my card for this month's Stock Your Stash Challenge with the theme for June...  Hello or Just Because.   I love these kind of cards because you can use them for any occasion.   I am using the Greatest Adventure  stamp set to create this cool outdoor scene with two things that I love - sitting by a fire and being outdoors!  
To start the card, I created a slimline design.  Here are my dimensions - Inked panel 3.5 by 8.25 inches with a white card base 7.5 by 8.5 inches scored at 3.75 inches.  
I inked the card panel with Reverse Confetti inks:  Buttercup, Bumblebee, Iced Aqua, Lagoon and Abyss inks using blender brushes.  I die cut the panel on the blue side with All the Stars Confetti Cuts and layered some blue foil paper behind it.   To create my ground, I used Lead cardstock and trimmed it with the Nuts About You border die and used both the positive and negative die cuts.   I added an Iced Aqua Pool Confetti Cuts that had been inked with Iced Aqua ink on the edge.   
I stamped my images from Greatest Adventure onto Premier Polar White cardstock and then colored with my Copic markers.   I die cut the images out with the Greatest Adventure Confetti Cuts.   I stamped a sentiment from Greatest Adventure onto the Lead cardstock and white heat embossed it.   I then added my images to the card with a mix of liquid adhesive and foam tape to create depth and diminsion.   I tucked a cloud from Over the Rainbow Confetti Cuts under one of the trees.   

To finish off my card, I added some details with my clear sparkle pen, white gel pen and some crystal jewels.    I hope you get a chance to play along with this month's Stock Your Stash theme!!!

Hey 'Fetti Fans, it's Amy T and I'm so excited to be on the blog!  Today is the start of the June Stock Your Stash challenge.  The theme is Hello | Just Because and this is how I was inspired:
I decided to do a makeover on one of my original cards using the beautiful, The Best Days set.   One of the biggest changes is the softer color palette.  If you've been following me for any length of time, I've become quite the pastel crafter.
I combined The Best Days with the Stitched Burst Cover Panel and the Stitched Note & Frames.  The sentiment has been stamped in Midnight on a banner from the Flowers for Mom confetti cuts set.

My base panel is Stone, one of my favorite neutral colors that Reverse Confetti carries.  The summer pattern paper is from the Sun & Sea 6x6.

I can't wait to see how you're inspired!

Hello! Olga with you today. 
Sunny days in my city. Hello, summer! My card about it.


At first, I stamped the elements from Let`s Shellabrate and covered it with masking paper. Then I stamped the hippo from Hippo Pool Party and covered it too.  


I toned the background using inks. I made one part of the background blue as water, and the other yellow as sand. Then I made the water splashes. 
I deleted the masking paper and colored the details of my card with markers.


I stamped the title and covered it with glossy accents. I decorated my card using drops and white permanent marker. 


  Have a nice day!









OH, JOYOUS DAY

 Sometimes it's the simple things that bring us joy.  A good cup of coffee does the trick for me!  That and the fact that the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Hop is going on right now, too!
 For my card, I cut Piggy Bank cardstock using the Diagonal Stitches Cover Panel, adhered to the Cloud White card base then layered a pattern from Cue the Confetti paper pad.
Using the Choose Joy stamp set, I stamped the flowers in Flamingo, the leaves in Lime Green, the wreath in Sand and the sentiment in Midnight.  I then arranged the flowers around the wreath.
The sweet coffee cup and spoon are from the Drink More Coffee stamp set and coordinating dies.  I then layered one of the Choose Joy flowers onto the cup.  To finish, I added a few small sequins.

MAIN SQUEEZE

Hello Reverse Confetti Friends!  Amy Kolling here sharing a card for that special someone.  This in particular is an anniversary card!
 
Using the Stitched Hex Tag Confetti Cuts, I die cut four pieces from just the bottom of the tags.  TIP: Don't die cut the whole tag....just the bottom!  Save on some cardstock.  This gives more value to these tag dies!  This tag has the triple stitch around the bottom and is the perfect chevron.  By layering them up, I created this fun landscape for my simple scene.
 
My Copic colored bear from Huggable was die cut and added with foam adhesive over a Broken China Distress Ink blended background.  To ground my bear, I added a white heat embossed black sentiment strip from Lemonade Stand.  As a final touch, I added six die cut hearts from the Huggable Confetti Cuts around my bear.  Simple but just enough detail.
 
Thanks for sharing a part of your day here with me!

A TRUE FRIEND

Hello Fetti Fans! Ali here and It's great to see you again on the Reverse Confetti Blog - hope you are doing ok and keeping up with some crafting. I needed some 'pretty' in my life this week and the floral images from Happy Mail were just perfect for some delicate softness. I love that my Reverse Confetti stash has such diversity of images so that I can feed my eclectic approach to crafting (more on that below).  Read on for details of my card and some of my crafting musings for the week!
 
I have a question to ask along with this post: do you have a "style" to your cardmaking?  Or even, do you think you necessarily need to have a "style"?  There is so much I enjoy about this craft and one of the main thinks is the diversity and exploration it brings to my crafting.  It's for this reason that I don't think I have a distinct style.......and that's ok.  I think too many crafters put themselves under pressure to have a defined 'style' when it can actually limit your enjoyment of your crafting (and audience).
I guess I just wanted to encourage all you fellow eclectic crafters out there to keep doing 'you'!  Because, I too, like to try lots of different techniques and styles with my cardmaking (the only downside I can see so far is that I do want to try everything so budgeting is more difficult! hehe).
Anyway, enough musing - to my card!
I used the Double Stitched Window Cover Panel to cut a frame and then ran it through my die cutting machine with the Diagonal Stitches Cover Panel. I adhered this to a white cardbase. I stamped my images with InkOn3 blackout ink and coloured them with Copics:
RV55, RV14, RV23
BG49, BG23, BG11
YG25, YG06
I added details with a white Gelly Roll Pen.
I die cut the images with the corresponding die and positioned them around the frame - to see where to stamp the sentiment (from The Most Beauty) which I also stamped in the blackout ink. I adhered the flowers with 3D foam. Pretty, Pretty, Pretty!
Thanks for stopping by!

Hey 'Fetti Fans, it's Amy T here and so excited that Reverse Confetti is one of the many Super Sponsors for the 2020 Spring | Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop:
All you have to do is link up a newly created caffeinated project over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog to be eligible for one of the many prizes.  Reverse Confetti is sponsoring Three $20 Gift Codes!
Here's how I was inspired for today's post:
My base is a panel of Premier Polar White.  I layered another panel of Iced Aqua on top.  I trimmed down a 2 inch Bellini Sweet Stripes panel
My center layering started with a Scallop Window Tag.  It's been cut in Premier Polar White.  I also cut the rainbow from Over the Rainbow in white and colored it with copics.  The sun from the same confetti cuts set has been cut in Buttercup.  

I just adore the Coffee and You set.  That sweet elephant and her cute friends are just too darling.  The sentiment is from the Drink More Coffee set, stamped in Midnight.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

COMBINING SETS TO MAKE A SCENE

By Reverse Confetti
on May 21, 2020
Hello my friends! This is Olga Moss and I am so happy to be back here with my new inspiration post

For my today's card I mixed four!! favorite stamp sets from Reverse Confetti. So I used here: Lemonade StandSpring Bunnies, Rainy Day Fun and Spring Pals.


I like to make scenes, and Reverse Confetti sets are often have very interesting elements. So, the stand with carrots was originally the lemonade stand. And the boots is actually empty. I filled them with carrots. I removed and added unnecessary items using masking paper.


I wanted to create a summer scene of an evening party with happy friends. So for the background I used Abandoned Coral and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Inks. To create a grass color I used Cracked Pistachio and Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide Inks.

Next I stamped the images and colored them with Copic markers. Then, I die cut some of them out with the Rainy Day Fun Confetti Cuts and Spring Pals Confetti Cuts. I than stamped the sentiment and adhered the images with foam tape. All finished!



Thank you for visiting my post!

Hi friends! I hope you're having a great day! As the weather is getting warmer I hope you're spending more time outside and keeping your head up! Today I'm sending butterflies and rainbows to make you smile! 
The rainbow striped background was easy to achieve using a little tip! I cut the Diagonal Stripes Confetti Cut from white card stock with a piece of shipping tape attached to the back. The tape prevents the die form cutting all the way through the panel keeping it together and allows me to see where the die cut openings will be. 
Using a small cosmetic brush I added distress ink to the areas that would be exposed. I splatted the panel with water before adhering a clean cut Diagonal Stripes Panel over the inky panel.
I colored the Butterfly Wreath with Copic Markers. The clean line drawn butterflies are easy to color and any markers would work well. The sentiment is trimmed into a strip and attached along the bottom of the card. 
Are you smiling yet? Have a beautiful day!
