Good morning! Heather here this morning with a new edition of Wednesday in the Works! This week I'm sharing a couple of custom fairytale bookmarks using some solid cardstock, and a few older stamp sets and confetti cuts!


Here is this week's video showing how this card came together:



I thought these sentiments from My Tribe were so fun to put together with the sweet little image from Magical Day!


The pink version used Piggy Bank and Flamingo cardstock, and Flamingo dye ink. Here is a closer look at the sparkly Nuvo Drops on the princess:


The blue version uses RC Aqua and Iced Aqua cardstock, and Lagoon dye ink. Here is a closer look at the Glossy Accents on the dragon:


Older Confetti Cuts Edgers and Hang Ups, Too helped make the top of these bookmarks super fun. And simply trimming off the bottom to the custom length needed for each image and sentiment combo was the easy way to get them the perfect length!


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

YOU'RE THE BEST

Hello Reverse Confetti Friends! I hope you are having a great day! Crafting is my sweet escape and today I'm dreaming of sunny days and warmer weather! 
This beautiful spring scene starts with a distress ink background that is die cut with the "thanks" sentiment from the "Thanks and Hello" word die set. I adhered the panel to my card base and then cut the word sentiment again from gold glitter paper and white card stock. The gold glitter cut is inlaid into the openings on the panel and the white is adhered at a slight off set so the gold peeks from behind. Next I cut a border of grass from the "Nuts About You" companion die set from white card stock, inked it and adhered it to the card base. 
Now for the fun part! I arranged the cute critters from "Flowers For A Friend" on a piece of clear plastic the size of my card base. It's easy to pick up the entire panel and lay it over the background and rearrange the pieces before committing with adhesive. 
I stamped a sentiment on the inky panel directly under the sentiment. I like using Versafine Onyx Black ink because it holds up against the bright background. Another good alternative would be to heat emboss. 
Where will your crafty adventures take you today? Finished Size 4.25 x 5.5"

Hello!  Amy Kolling here with a card featuring the beautifully detailed Peony stamps.  
 
While I find coloring images relaxing, sometimes time does not allow me to do so.  I was inspired to use a technique I haven't done in a long time.  Probably before I found Copics!  White heat embossing images onto colored cardstocks is a super quick technique that gives great results.  Using the Peony stamps, the main image and a few greenery images were white heat embossed onto Piggy Bank, Flamingo, Iced Aqua, and Avocado Reverse Confetti cardstocks.  Once the images were die cut, they were arranged onto a white top folding notecard and picked up with Press 'n Seal.
 
A sentiment from Sentimentally Yours was stamped in black ink masking off portions to create a sentiment that goes up and down vs. horizontally to fit in the space of my card.  My images were adhered and the edges were all pulled up for dimension.  To finish, a few white gems were added with Glossy Accents.

VERY MUCH APPRECIATED

Hello there!   It's Tricia here today sharing a Thank You card with the Peony and Thank You stamp sets.   I love using bright color combinations and this yellow and navy was perfect together.    I stamped the Peony stamp set onto Premier Polar White cardstock and colored with my Copic markers.    I die cut the flower and leaves using the Peony Confetti Cuts.   


For my card base, I die cut Navy cardstock with the Snow Stars Cover panel.   I left the die cuts in the panel and covered the back with adhesive so that the tiny Snow Stars won't fall out and added it to a white card base.    



I stamped a sentiment from the Thank You stamp set and white heat embossed the sentiment onto Midnight cardstock.   I trimmed it down to the width of the card panel and adhered it with liquid adhesive directly to the card panel.   


I die cut the scalloped circle using the Fa La La Circle Confetti Cuts from Premier Polar White cardstock.   I then layered my Peony with the leaves onto the circle die cut.   I added some details to the image with a white gel pen and finished it off with a few crystal jewels.   


I hope you have a wonderful day!   

THIS IS BIG NEWS

Hi all! Olga Moss is here. Are You Ready for my new card? I play with cute stamp set called Cheerful Pals to make an encouragement card.


I stamped and colored the images using copic markers then die cut all with the Cheerful Pals Confetti Cuts.


I then die cut the rainbow using the Over the Rainbow Confetti Cuts out of white card stock and used the Flamingo, Peach, Baby Blue and Wisteria Dye inks to color to arches. I opted to use only 4 arches instead of all 6.


I created an ink blended sky with Baby Blue, Pistachio and Grass inks.
Then heat embossed the sentiment 'This is big news' in gold below the background. This sentiment is from the OMG stamp set. Also I  heat embossed the large 'OMG' word and die cut this using OMG Confetti Cuts.
I added my rainbow and OMG word, onto the background first. Then I added the funny critters with foam tape.  Isn’t it fun?

BUTTERFLY WREATH

Hey there!  It's Amy T and I'm back with a card set that features the new Butterfly Wreath.    Let's chat about my bellini colored duo:


I absolutely love to color in peach tones.  Such a pretty color and perfect for those butterflies.  I teamed them up with strips from the Sweet Stripes 6x6.  I love the Stitched Burst Cover Panel as the background.  All four cards use sentiments from the So Many Sentiments set stamped with Midnight ink.

Generally speaking I don't gravitate towards making multiples of one design but these actually came together pretty quickly.  Using the different color palettes helped me through the process.  I get easily distracted.


My other set uses an Iced Aqua theme with the butterflies.  Do you notice that I switched out the Sweet Stripes strips?  The contrasting colors, along with twine really brings the design together.


I stamped the sentiments on the tag from the Clear Treat Box & Box Wrap Combo.  I actually threaded the twine through the tag and bowed it off.

I'm happy to have a bit of a card stash.  They aren't the most postal friendly.  Although you can't tell by the photography I used quite a bit of foam dimensional tape.  It's under the sentiment tag, the wreath and the Stitched Burst Cover Panel.

That's it for me, thanks so much for stopping by!





AMAZING

Hello everyone! I want to share with you my OMG card. It has a lot of green and flowers, because I can’t wait for spring!


I applied Stitched Circles Cover Panel Confetti Cuts to cardstock and glued it to the base.
Then I stamped the flowers using Beautiful Memories and Peony. I colored it with watercolor markers. I applied Beautiful Memories Confetti Cuts and Peony Confetti Cuts.


Then I made the title. I stamped OMG with green inks and applied OMG Confetti Cuts to it.


I stamped the sentiment from OMG using watercolor ink. I embossed it with white powder.
I put together all details of my card and added the drops.


 Have a nice day!









CRAFTY VALENTINE

Happy Valentine's Day my crafty friends! Jeanne here and I wanted to make a card just for you today because you and I are a match made in heaven. We both love stamps, dies, making.. and REVERSE CONFETTI!
I can't resist a rainbow of color and they look amazing with the Crafty Critters stamp set! 
I cut colorful strips of Confetti Colors card stock in strips 1/2" wide. I taped them together on their reverse side and then adhered the Split Circles Cover Panel over it. I trimmed the edges that were peeking out from behind the panel and then adhered the assembled panel to a card base. 
To keep the cute crafty critters from getting lost on the busy background I added a Grid Stitched Tag to layer them on. I love the wonderful craft inspired sentiments in the set. 
Sending you crafty hugs and all the good things that make you happy this Valentines's Day!

Hello there!   It's Tricia here today sharing a card with some crafty hugs!   I combined one of my favorite stamp set, Mod Floral Stack with the new Crafty Critters.  





I used one of the stamps from Mod Floral Stack and stamped a rainbow background with Grape Soda, RC Aqua, Flamingo, Salsa, Tangerine, Bumblebee and Lime Green inks onto Premier Polar White card stock.   I loved creating the rainbow of color on the card panel.  




It is so much fun to create your own backgrounds and the Mod Floral Stack is one that you can create so many different designs.  I then ran the card panel thru my die cutting machine with the Stitched Scallops Cover Panel.    




I stamped the images from Crafty Critters onto Premier Polar White card stock and then colored with my Copic markers.   I die cut them out with the coordinating Crafty Critters Confetti Cuts.   I die cut a scalloped circle from Rose and Premier Polar White cardstock with the Flowers for Mom Confetti Cuts.  I added the zebra and scissors with foam tape.  I finished it off with some Nuvo drops, crystal glaze and white gel pen.   



Wishing you some crafty hugs!   









TONE ON TONE

Good morning! Heather here this morning with a new edition of Wednesday in the Works! This week I'm sharing a simple tone on tone effect with heat embossing to create elegant and simple sympathy cards - the cards no one ever wants to make, but are so nice to have prepared when you need them. And they are also some of the most meaningful cards to receive!


Here is this week's video showing how this card came together:



I used Elegant Florals Stamp set to add the flower images to these cards, and then two different stamp sets for the sentiments and a different color cardstock for each one.


This first card uses Iced Aqua cardstock and Iced Aqua Dye ink, and the sentiment came from Sentimental Sayings stamp set.


For this second card, I used Baby Blue cardstock and Baby Blue dye ink, and the sentiment is from Forever in Our Hearts.


Both cards have a bit of white paint splatters - check out the video to see how the blue card ended up with splatters the way it did...basically turning a mistake into a different design element! 


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