TWEETINGS

By Jennifer del Muro
on February 26, 2021

 Hello!  Is Spring starting to pop out for you?   It is for me and I am loving all the sunshine and birds chirping at my window.   I created this Birthday Tweetings card using the Birdie Buddies stamp set along with the Pointed Cover Panel. 


I used the Pointed Cover Panel with Lime Green cardstock and die cut a half panel and added to the bottom of a card panel.   To create the scalloped edge, I used the Scalloped Squares Confetti Cuts and die cut two of the large squares along one edge with Buttercup cardstock.   I then layered them behind the Lime Green card panel.   


I stamped the birds and tree limb from Birdie Buddies and colored with Copic markers.   I added some details with my white gel pen.   I die cut them out with the Birdie Buddies Confetti Cuts.   I stamped the musical notes directly onto my card panel.  The birthday tweetings sentiment is from the Birdie Buddies stamp set.  


I hope you weather is warming up and you get to enjoy a beautiful weekend!   Happy crafting!  


WARM HUGS

Hello! Candice with you today sending out some warm winter hugs your way!

I used these fabulous Reverse Confetti products to create my mini slimline card:

I began my mini slimline with a 6 1/2 x 4 card base.

For my background, I die cut my cover panel with the Double Stitched Window Cover die using the partial die cut method (cut almost to the end on one side and then rotate and do it on the other side to extend your panel). To get the size I need I simply trimmed off the excess on the bottom of the grey panel.

I then trimmed a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock to fit behind this panel, inked it with speckled egg, stormy sky and shaded lilac and splattered with these inks and white paint using a damp paint brush. While I let this dry, I created my layered warm hugs with thick white cardstock and inked the top one with the stormy sky and shaded lilac.

Next, I stamped the images from the Birdie Buddies and Snow Bunnies stamp sets, colored them with copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. To put the card together, I used foam tape on the images in the windows, added the sentiment over the "warm hugs" on a white banner and tucked the red heart behind it and topped it off with the adorable winter hat! I finished with some white pearls!

I hope everyone is getting out and thawing after such a cold snap across the country and that my warm hugs are helping! Thank you for stopping by!

Hello!  
Amy Kolling here today sharing one of my favorite, older floral sets, Bold Blooms



I pulled out Mist, Baby Blue, and Abyss Reverse Confetti Inks to stamp my blooms.  For something more muted, I used Stormy Ink for the leaves.  All the blooms and leaves were die cut using the coordinating dies and adhered to a Wreath Confetti Cuts, some with foam adhesive.  

My wreath was adhered to a white notecard that was layered with the Plaid Lines--Small Confetti Cuts.  A simple 'hello' was die cut using the Hello & Thanks Label Confetti Cuts done out of Stormy Cardstock.  To finish, a few clear gems were adhered.

It IS better when we're together with family and friends!   This last year has been difficult with people being unable to get together and visit.  Even us introverts are starting to miss being around people!  The one thing we do know is that we are better together and we figure out ways to connect.

Reverse Confetti and Hero Arts recent collaboration on the Better Together set just goes to show how incredible things can happen when we team up towards a common interest. 

Join the Reverse Confetti & Hero Arts hop to get all the details on this fabulous set and to be inspired by the incredible creations from the Design Teams!  We are giving away $50 gift cards to TWO lucky winners, drawn from comments left across the blog hop. One gift code will be to the Hero Arts store, and the other to Reverse Confetti. Comment on the hop by Thursday, February 25th at 11:59pm pst.

For my card, I cut Premier Polar White cardstock with the Squared Off Cover Panel and adhered it to the card base.  This sweet elephant and mouse from the Coffee & You set are showing off the delightful flowers created with the Better Together set!  To finish, I gold embossed one of the sentiments in this new set on to Dark Roast cardstock.

 



HAPPY MAIL

Recently I've been seeing projects that outside of my 'wheelhouse' but have been so inspiring.   I compiled a bunch of ideas and here's how I was inspired:


If you've been following me for a bit, you know that I'm generally clean + crisp.  I don't do mixed media/grungy very often but THIS card had me inspired.  

Let's start with the sentiments.  It's a combo of three sets:
Snail Mail
This Says It All
So Many Sentiments [heat embossed in white on Midnight cardstock]


The butterflies are from Butterfly Dreams.  I originally was going to combine it with Stained Glass Butterflies and Butterfly Wreath but just couldn't get it all to flow.

The base panel is Brisol, the sentiments have been stamped with Versafine Onyx.  I used the smooshing technique with a sheet of acetate and the following Distress Oxides [Kristina Werner combo]:
Crackling Campfire
Dried Marigold
Antique Linen


I used the Cross Tiles Cover Panel as a stencil and used the Therm O Web Glitz Glitter Gel.  That panel has been trimmed down and adhered to an A2 panel of Premier Polar White.

That's it for me, have a great week!

CELEBRATE YOUR DAY

Hello Fetti Fans! Ali here and thanks for joining me on the blog - always nice to see you here! Do you like to sketch or plan your cards, or do you just let the creative juices flow? Sometimes it's nice to sit down at the crafting desk and just see what eventuates and today's card was the result - it's nice to allow the process to happen more organically every now and again - I feel as though this card has a really original look but I liked the result! Of course it always helps to have one of my favorite sets on hand - the beautiful Stained Glass Butterflies.

I began by stamping the butterflies on Kraft card stock in versamark ink and white embossing them. I die cut them and used a white Posca Pen to dot a pattern on the butterflies. I stamped a sentiment on some kraft card and white embossed it also.

I die cut a frame using the Outlined Frame Cover Panel from white cardstock and also used this frame to cut an edge for the sentiment strip. I lined up the sentiment holes with the frame holds and adhered this and the butterflies to the frame. I adhered this to the front of a kraft cardbase to complete the card.

A lovely delicate design that is simple to make! 

Thanks for joining me again,

Ali xx


HERO ARTS + REVERSE CONFETTI PARTNERS SET

Excited doesn't begin to describe the feeling I have today.  I am beyond ecstatic to announce that we have joined forces with Hero Arts for a collaborative stamp and die set called BETTER TOGETHER!  When I was first approached about this I may have jumped up and down, done a little dance and sang a little happy song (more than once, even).  When I regained some professional composure, I sat down to write a note to say that I would love to be part of something so great.
While I don't remember for sure, I am pretty certain that a Hero Arts stamp was my first stamp.  If it wasn't my very first, it was definitely in the first few that I procured.  I've always admired their company.  Of course they have wonderful designs, but over the years I've taken more notice of what they stand for and how they build up everyone in this industry.  It is truly admirable and humbling. For all of the above, I thank Hero Arts.  We truly are BETTER TOGETHER!
I've had been sitting on this stamp design for quite some time, just waiting for the right time to release it.  When this all came about, I knew that this was "the right time."  While all of the design concepts for Reverse Confetti are mine, I can not draw to save my life and send everything off to our team of illustrators to work on.  Not this time!  I handed over the concept drawings to my 14 year old daughter, Ellie.  Having her work on this makes all of it even more special and, of course, I am one proud mama! In addition all of this wonderful news, we are happy to announce that all net profits from this set will be donated to the Human Rights Campaign.
And, if all that wasn't enough amazing-ness, there's a giveway to go with this blog hop!
We are giving away $50 gift cards to TWO lucky winners, drawn from comments left across the blog hop. One gift code will be to the Hero Arts store, and the other to Reverse Confetti. Comment on the hop by Thursday, February 25th at 11:59pm pst. The more blogs you leave comments on, the more chances to win!
I have a couple of cards to share with you today using this fun set.  This is a multi-step stamp set and there are so many possibilities when combining each of the different elements.  This layering guide is on the back of the stamp set, as well.
 
My first card today uses the solid portion of the flower, as well as 2 of the layering design elements.
The solid portion of the flower is stamped in Tangerine ink and then layered with the scalloped stripe element in Rust ink and finally topped with the polka dot layering that is stamped in white pigment ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
The scalloped line at the top of the flower is stamped in Magenta ink.  The die cut of this flower is a little longer on the bottom than the image itself so that you can easily adhere it to the back of the flower without losing any detail.   The stamen are stamped in Stormy ink, as is the sentiment.
 
I stamped multiple leaves to layer under the 3 flowers.  They are stamped in Lime Green and Avocado Inks.  You can use these leaves flipped either way, adding to the fun and versatility of this set.
 
. . . . .
 I'm not one for making multiples of my cards, but I really do like this sweet and simple design and I love knowing that I can use an infinite number of color combos to create unique cards. 
I started by stamping the solid portion of the flower in Magenta ink and then adding the stripe detail in Wine ink.
 
The scalloped edge detail is stamped in Iced Aqua, which I also pulled in with a strip of cardstock behind the sentiment.  The leaves are stamped in Lime Green and Avocado inks and the stem is stamped in Lime Green.
 
I have an immense amount of pride for this stamp and die set and I hope that you love it, too!  It is available for purchase through Hero Arts HERE.  Don't forget that the net profits from this set will be donated to Human Rights Campaign, who also believes that we are all BETTER TOGETHER!  I'm sending you on your way to see what everyone has created using this set.  Leave a comment at each stop along the way for a chance to win!

SWEET TREATS

By Jennifer del Muro
on February 15, 2021

 Hello!  I am sharing with you a sweet treat using the Scalloped Bag & Tags Creator Confetti Cuts and the Cookies & Milk stamp set.   

I stamped the images from Cookies & Milk stamp set onto Premier Polar White cardstock and colored with my Copic markers.   I die cut the images with the Cookies & Milk Confetti Cuts.   I just love this cute little scene and the details in the stamp set.  


My treat bag was made with the Scalloped Bag & Tags Creator Confetti Cuts.  This is a really versatile die.  I die cut two panels from kraft cardstock and then scored on the bottom of both about half an inch.   I then glued the bottom together and added a little bit of adhesive to the top corners to create a pocket for my treats.  I added a small strip of Midnight cardstock to the bottom.   I added my images to the bag with some foam tape and liquid adhesive.   


The tag was made with the tag dies in the Scalloped Bag & Tag Creators Confetti Cuts.   I used the Boo Yea stamp set to stamp the sweet treats sentiment onto Mist cardstock.   I then popped up my circle onto the scalloped tag.  I tied it to my black and white ribbon.  


To finish this sweet treat, I added some cookies and chocolate milk straws to the treat bag!  


Thanks so much for stopping by today! 




YOU MAKE MY HEART HAPPY

Hello 'Fetti Friends! Candice with you today sharing a sweet Valentine's Day mini slimline card!

I used these Reverse Confetti products for my mini slimline:

I began my mini slimline with a 6 1/2 x 4 card base.

For my fun background, I first inked a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock trimmed a little smaller than my card base with tumbled glass and broken china and then repeatedly stamped the sentiment across the panel with blue ink. I then added some open hearts cut from red cardstock along the left side and trimmed the edges.

Next, I stamped the puppy, momma bear, wagon bear and mug, colored them with copic markers and used the coordinating dies listed above to cut them out. I adhered them along the bottom with either glue or foam tape to add dimension and tucked the little heart in momma's hands. I then created my large bold layered XOXO from thick white cardstock and put the heat embossed sentiment on a red banner using foam tape. Can you tell I love dimension!

I finished with a splattered of blue and white domes along the bottom to help ground the images!

Thank you so much for visiting with me today and I hope you have a fabulous day!

Candice

HOPE IS NEVER LOST

By Jennifer del Muro

Hello!  
Amy Kolling sharing some HOPE today.
  I like having these types of cards in my stash for just that moment.

Hope3


I stamped all the blooms from Farmhouse Wreath several times and Copic colored them in bright reds/yellows.  (Can you tell I'm longing for spring?)  They were all die cut and arranged on a sample panel.  Using Press 'n Seal, I picked all of the up at once.  This made it super easy to adhere to my note card.

Hope


My note card was stamped with the sentiment, from Mixed Messages, front and center.  Then, the note card was impressed with the Outlined Frame Cover Panel.  I love the look of using a die as an impression plate!!  All my arranged blooms were then adhered to the corners of the note card.  Stickles were added to the flower centers and some white gems for sparkle to finish.

Hope2
