HAVE A BEAUTIFUL DAY

 Beauty is all around us...even during the most challenging of times.  It's there if we look for it.  I don't venture very far these days and sometimes the farthest I go is my backyard, yet I find beauty and experience peace there - which I seem to be needing more and more these days.  My card is a reminder to find something beautiful every day.
For my card, I layered Dark Roast cardstock onto the card base then a pattern from the Cue The Confetti Paper Pad.  I cut Sand cardstock using the Tall Stripe Panel (retired) die and brushed with Dark Roast ink to create a 'shutter' trellis.  Speaking of beautiful...the new Sketched Florals are that and more!  I love the delicate flowers, leaves and sentiments in this set! 
Here's hoping YOU have a beautiful day!

BIRTHDAY RELEASE | NOW AVAILABLE

Hello 'Fetti FAMILY!  It's here, it's here...the new release is FINALLY here!  While I was sad that we had to postpone the May birthday release, I knew that it was always #worththewait and now I'm so happy to say that the wait is over and all of the new release goodies, including the FREE (with minimum purchase) *limited edition* FRIENDLY RAINBOW stamp set is NOW AVAILABLE!  To celebrate, today we are having a HUGE birthday hop with lots of fabulous friends!  I am just giddy about it all!

 
 
Before I get to my projects and the hop list, let's recap this fabulous release...
 

STAMPS

 
 
 
 
 

CONFETTI CUTS

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
. . . . .
My first project to share with you today is a card that I created using the

FRIENDLY RAINBOW stamp set.  This stamp set is FREE with a $60 purchase (please see the product page for all details).

I started with a PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock card base and then layered an OH MY HEART COVER PANEL cut (also PREMIER POLAR WHITE) on dimensional adhesive.  I cut a few hearts from gold cardstock and popped them in to 3 of the heart spaces.
The main image is the rainbow from the FRIENDLY RAINBOW stamp set, along with the stripe and outline clouds (stamped in NAVY on PREMIER POLAR WHITE and ICED AQUA).  The rainbow is colored with Copic markers and then I stamped the words in PISTACHIO ink. 
From there, I cut out the image and layered the sentiment strip between the clouds and popped it up on the card on top of strips of NAVY and BUTTERCUP cardstock.
 
. . . . .
My second project today is a card featuring the new SKETCHED FLORALS stamps and Confetti Cuts...
The card base is created from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock and then is layered with a piece of MIST cardstock that is stamped on and layered with MIDNIGHT cardstock.  The outline images are stamped in MIDNIGHT ink and then the solid images are stamped with PISTACHIO and ROSE ink.  I used a light gray Copic marker to outline/shadow parts of the images.
 
 
For the focal image, I cut the word "thanks" from the HELLO & THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die set (MIDNIGHT cardstock).  The floral images are again stamped on MIST with MIDNIGHT, PISTACHIO and ROSE ink.  I cut them out along with another cut from vellum and layered it under the sentiment panel.
As a finishing touch, I added enamel dots.
 
 

. . . . . . .

As I noted above, I am just giddy about today - the new release is now available and we have a huge birthday celebration hop with so many friends joining us!  It's time for you to head on out and see all of their amazing creations...

And now onto the intros:
It wouldn't be a birthday release without a celebration set...

PARTY PALS

Coordinating Confetti Cuts...
And, what's a party without some balloons...

BALLOONS

. . . . .
My first card to share with you today features LOTS of new products:  PARTY PALS stamps and Confetti Cuts, BALLOONS Confetti Cuts, INSIDE SCALLOP CIRCLE TAG Confetti Cuts and CENTER CIRCLE COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts...
I started with a card base created from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock and layered a piece of polka dot paper from the WINTER WONDER 6x6 paper pad.  From there, I added CENTER CIRCLE COVER PANEL cut from PREMIER POLAR WHITE.
I added a strip of ICED AQUA cardstock across the panel and then layered the main image panel on top.
The main image panel is created from the INSIDE SCALLOP CIRCLE TAG Confetti Cuts - I love that I can use this as both tag, as its name intends and as a panel on my projects.
The balloons are cut from RC AQUA, ICED AQUA and GRAPE SODA cardstock.  I adhered sewing thread to the backs of them, as I felt there was already enough stitching happening on the card and chose not to use the stitched string details included with the BALLOONS Confetti Cuts die set.
The bear and presents image is colored with Copics and is popped up with dimensional adhesive.  Finally, I added the sentiment on strips of PREMIER POLAR WHITE and added a few sequins.
. . . . .
And, drumroll please!  Our final introductions of this release...

CORGI CUTIES

My love for Corgis started nearly 2 decades ago when we inadvertently adopted one.  Are you asking "what the heck do you mean by "inadvertently?!"  Well, let me tell you a little story...
Newly married and having just moved to Texas from San Diego, my husband, Tony, and I chatted about having a dog.  We had seen some puppies, but none of them really stole our hearts...until we met Abby.  We were driving somewhere when I looked over and in the parking lot of our local Albertson's grocery store, there was a family with puppies and a sign that said "free puppies!"  Remember when that was a thing??  Yea, that's how long ago this was - 16 years to be exact.  I begged him to pull over and he did and I rushed to hold one of the darling itty bitty pups and then looked at Tony with my own puppy dog eyes.  We asked a few questions.  Like, "what breed is this?"  We were told that she was a HUSKY and GERMAN SHEPARD mix!  We agreed that she needed to come home with us and so she did.  I took her to the vet the very next day and he said that she kinda looked like a St. Bernard, but he still wasn't sure what breed she really was...until I brought her in for her boosters a few weeks later and while the rest of her body had grown, her legs had not!!  He laughed and said, "Well, it looks like you have yourself a Corgi!"  Our best guess is that she is mixed with a shepard of some sort, but Corgi is definitely her dominant breed.  She's was such a fun puppy and soon we got her a playmate, Cooper.  He has since passed on and she is still with us.  It's been 17 years of memories with this sweet and stubborn (OMG-so stubborn!) girl.  She welcomed our babies home from the hospital, she has been in every house we've moved to (we've moved a lot) and she is "Ellie's fan club president," following her around everywhere.  She sleeps most of the time now, but is still happy and healthy.  I'm glad that we happened to be passing by those "free" puppies that day, as she has brought a lot of joy into our lives and our children's lives - although she has been anything but "free!" LOL!
  Here are a few photos of our sweet "ABBY-DOG..." from puppy to present...
In honor of Abby's youthful days, here is a sweet and playful puppy card.  Although I must say, Abby would never play with a ball.  She had this rubber chicken and it was the *only* toy that she would play with. I had to keep buying replacements off of Amazon, when Target ceased to carry them.  Stubborn little lady!!
The card base is cut from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock and I ran it through with the twirly ribbon die from the BALLOONS Confetti Cuts to give the appearance of a bouncing ball.
The dog and ball are colored with Copic markers and are popped up with dimensional adhesive.
The clouds are from the, previously released, HONEY BEAR set and are stamped in NAVY ink on PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock and popped up with dimensional adhesive...
The "grass" under the dog is a strip of AVOCADO cardstock and I stamped the sentiment on it in white pigment ink.  It's popped up on dimensional adhesive atop of strip of paper cut from the SWEET STRIPES 6x6 paper pad...
. . . . .
It's time for me to sign off for the day and send you on your way to see what the rest of the Confetti Crew has created to share with you today.  Don't forget that all new products will be available in the store tonight at midnight EST. 

COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI | DAY TWO

Hello again, 'Fetti FAMILY!
We're here on DAY TWO of the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI for our FABULOUS (delayed) birthday release!  While we had to wait a month to release it due to Covid-19 related manufacturing delays, we think that you will agree that it has definitely been #WORTHTHEWAIT
 
Once again, this is what our schedule looks like for 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 on June 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.
. . . . .
There's a BONUS to this release, too!  We have a special FREEBIE stamp set that we are gifting you with a minimum purchase.  I'll post the product graphic towards the end of this post.
. . . . .
Today we are introducing one stamp set and few new Confetti Cuts dies.  This set has been floating around in my mind for so long and I finally got the ideas down on paper and to the illustrator and I just love what she did with it.  As the mother of a strong, smart and beautiful daughter, I proudly introduce to you...
GIRL POWER
Coordinating Confetti Cuts...
In addition to the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set, I also have THREE more Confetti Cut reveals for you today...
. . . . .
My first card today features the new GIRL POWER stamps and dies, along with the BIG BURST and GRL PWR Confetti Cuts...
I started with a PREMIER POLAR WHITE card base and then added a PREMIER POLAR WHITE panel that I cut with the new BIG BURST Confetti Cuts.  I layered a piece of BUMBLEBEE cardstock behind it and then added a BIG BURST cut from BUTTERCUP in front of it, slightly offset.
On the corners, I added strips of ICED AQUA, TANGERINE and BUMBLEBEE cardstock and then added the GRL PWR cuts to the lower right corner. 
The girl is colored with Copics.  As a finishing touch, I added a few sequins.
. . . .
I always envisioned the fists in the air being colored as all different races.  Little did I know that this would be such prominently relevant topic today.  My daughter, the empath, the volunteer and the budding activist came to me the other day and asked if we could attend a rally in our town.  With a few social distancing rules set, we ventured down to the the local rally.  It was peaceful, educational and empowering and I am so glad that we got to take part in it together.  This stamp set is about girl power, but the rally really had some inspiration as I made this card...
Can you spot the new INSIDE SCALLOP CIRCLE TAG on this card? 
Yep, I made it into a panel here as opposed to a tag!  I did trim off the tab portion.
It is a 2 piece die set, so I was able to cut another solid tag from SUNSHINE cardstock and layer it under the scalloped one.
From there I was able to layer all of the Copic colored images and place the sentiment.
The stripe paper is from the SWEET STRIPES 6x6 paper pad and I created the other "patterned paper" by stamping the heart from the GIRL POWER stamp set in ICED AQUA on ICED AQUA cardstock.
. . . . .
Before I send you on your way to see what the Confetti Crew and our 'Fetti Friends have to share with you today, I want to share the FREEBIE stamp set with you once again...

FRIENDLY RAINBOW

. . . . .
Now you're off to see what the rest of the Confetti Crew has created to share with you today.  I hope that you are inspired and uplifted by these new stamps and Confetti Cuts dies!

Greetings, 'Fetti FAMILY!  Remember, I get to call you all FAMILY now that we've been together 7 years.  Well, seven years and one month to be exact.  As you know, May was our birthday month, but due to some Covid-19 related manufacturing delays, we had to push back our big birthday celebration until NOW.  The party starts today and I think that you will agree that this release is definitely #worththewait.

Anyone want FREE stamps?  Details down below!
This is what our schedule looks like for the next few days...

. . . . .
And, here we are!  Are you READY FOR ((NEW)) CONFETTI?
Grab that cuppa and sit back, relax and enjoy all the Confetti Creativity we have to share with you today!
Today I am introducing 2 new stamp sets, their coordinating Confetti Cuts die sets and a new Cover Panel.  PLUS...the FREEBIE stamp set (details below). 
First up is the first of the stamp sets...

BOWL OF BLOOMS

Coordinating Confetti Cuts...
The first card that I have to share with you today is a cute lil' 3.5" x 5" card.  I had intended to make a long/tall card, but my layout wasn't coming out how I wanted it to so I cut it down to this cute size.  I think I'll be doing that more often!
I started by watercoloring the BOWL OF BLOOMS image with my Karin brushmarkers.  This was my first time using these and I am hooked!  I love how they make this large line art image just pop!
One of the detail images included in this set is a little card like you see on floral arrangements that are delivered.  I colored and cut it out and tucked it "into" the arrangement...
The sentiment is stamped in MIDNIGHT ink and placed on the card atop a patterned paper panel cut from the THIS & THAT 6x6 paper pad.
. . . . .
I mentioned that new COVER PANEL, right?

CENTER CIRCLE COVER PANEL

I used the new CENTER CIRCLE COVER PANEL along with the new BOWL OF BLOOMS stamps and Confetti Cuts on this card...
The card base is PREMIER POLAR WHITE and then I layered a panel of ROYAL PURPLE cardstock on top of the base.  From there, I cut the new CENTER CIRCLE COVER PANEL from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock and mounted it with dimensional adhesive.
The BOWL OF BLOOMS images are colored with Karin brushmarkers. 
As you can see, I layered a cut of gold cardstock behind the main image, just slightly offset.  I love how the gold and the purple look together and it really gave this card a little extra "punch."
The CENTER CIRCLE COVER PANEL features a large center circle (hence the name) along with framed and stitched detailing.
. . . . .
The next introduction that we have for you today is another fabulous floral set...

SKETCHED FLORALS

Coordinating Confetti Cuts...
I had a lot of fun playing with this multi-step stamp set!  On the sticker that comes on the stamp set, the images are labeled A, B and C so you can see which layer goes together.
For this card, I started with a PREMIER POLAR WHITE card base and then pop up a layer cut with the (previously released) SMALL DIAMOND TILES COVER PANEL.  From there I layered another panel of white and then the main image panel, which is more of a layer than a panel.
That layer is STORMY cardstock and I stamped the line images in STORMY ink and then I colored in the images with my Polychromos pencils.  After they were colored in, I stamped the line images again with a white pigment ink.
Before I added the sentiment, I stamped/colored/stamped and cut the floral image that I have tucked under the sentiment flag.  As a final touch, I added the yellow enamel accents.
. . . . .

Before I send you on your way to see what the Confetti Crew and our 'Fetti Friends have to share with you today, let me introduce one more stamp set...

FRIENDLY RAINBOW

This set can be yours for FREE with any $60 purchase!  Just add it to your cart and the discount is automatic.  Quantities are limited and we will not be re-ordering, so get it while it's here!
Here's a card I made using this darling set...
I still had the Karin brushmarkers on my desk and I was really tempted to watercolor this image for this card, but I ultimately decided to reach for my Copics and color and alternatively colored rainbow and have the sentiment colored with a gradient.  The layered panels under the main image panel ROYAL PURPLE and GRAPE SODA cardstock along with the lime green stripe paper from the SWEET STRIPES 6x6 paper pad.
Knowing that there would not be a die set to coordinate with this set, I kept the lines simple and easy to cut with scissors. 
gasp...fussy cutting?? 
Believe me, I get it...that's why the lines are simple to follow.!
. . . . .

Ok, now my time is done and it's time for you to head over to see what our wonderful team of designers have created to share with you today...


HAPPILY EVER AFTER

Hello Fetti Fans! Welcome to another blog post. Ali here with some soft sweetness for you with this Wedding card using Happy Mail for my background and Patterned Hearts for the feature images. I remembered a lovely card by Hannelie Bester that inspired me to try the feature of this card - simple black ink floral stamping behind a contrasting image. I loved the variety of heart patterns in these images so much I had to use a few of them across the card!
The other benefit of this simple design is there is no coloring involved! Just stamping with inks! It's refreshing to have a break from lots of detailed coloring-in now and again. To begin, I stamped the floral images on the card front with my InkOn3 Blackout Ink. I then stamped the hearts in distress oxide inks in Victorian Velvet and Hickory Smoke inks.
I used my mini misti so that I could stamp the hearts repeatedly to get good color coverage and crisp images. I then used the corresponding dies to cut out the hearts and cut 2 larger hearts out of vellum to place behind the pink hearts (with the corresponding dies used for this also). 
 
 I adhered the hearts in a alternating color placement over the card front so that the floral images peaked out from behind them. I stamped the sentiment from the So Very Lovely stamp set on black card and white embossed it. I backed it with a small piece of silver glitter paper to help it stand out and added some silver sequins for some more pops of silver.

Hope you enjoyed the card and that you are getting in some fabulous crafting.
Ali xx






 

FLORAL CARD

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!
