Good morning! Heather here this morning with a new edition of Wednesday in the Works! Today I'm sharing a couple cards using two different techniques for adding some texture and color to cards, and using one of the newly released stamp sets - Beautiful Memories!


Here is the video sharing the process for making these cards:



I really can't decide which look I like better - in appearance they are very similar, but one has a little more texture in the finished result.


I used Olive Dye ink to color the embossing paste - and to add some splatters at the end - and Stone cardstock for my cardbases for a bit of simple background color.


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


WARM HUGS

Hello there!  Audrey here with a fun card to share with you!

To create my card, I started off by watercoloring a piece of watercolor paper cut to 4" x 5.25".  I used Distress inks in Wild Honey, Picked Raspberry, Blueprint Sketch, Broken China and Twisted Citron.  To the bottom of that panel, I added a strip of patterned paper from the This & That paper pad.  I stamped and colored the smaller panda bear from the Miso Happy stamp set, along with some baboo and rocks from the set and diecut them with the coordinating Miso Happy Confetti Cuts dies.  Some of the pieces where adhered with a glue  pen, and others were popped up with foam tape for more dimension.

Warm Hugs

For my sentiment, I used the new Warm Hugs Confetti Cuts die.  I diecut it three times from white cardstock, and once from Midnight cardstock, layering them all together with a glue pen before adhering them to the center of the panel.  I added some white gel pen accents, and mounted the panel on an A2 horizontal card base cut from Polar White cardstock.

Warm Hugs

I hope something about my card inspires you today!!  Thank you so much for spending part of your day with me! :)

Hello Reverse Confetti fans!  Amy here with a floral card using some of the newest products released last week.  It may be fall/winter but you can make floral cards any time of the year!

Thanks 

Using The Best Days bold floral cluster, the image was black heat embossed onto Bristol Smooth cardstock.  The image was colored using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  The panel was trimmed to fit behind a frame from All Framed Up Confetti Cuts.  Remember, you don't have to use the whole image!!!

The framed floral panel was adhered to a notecard layered with pattern paper from the new Winter Wonder 6x6 Paper Pad.  For the sentiment, the 'thanks' was die cut using the Thanks and Hello Word Duos Confetti Cuts in a coordinating cardstock.

Thanks2

NEW RELEASE | NOW SHIPPING

Hello, 'Fetti Fans and HAPPY RELEASE DAY!  We are just so excited to bring you our November release featuring new stamps, Confetti Cuts dies and a new 6x6 paper pad.  As a reminder, Monday is a mail holiday.  We will be shipping as many orders as we can today (Friday) so that your goodies are to you just as fast as possible.

. . . . .
As always, we are celebrating our new release with a new release hop.  In addition to this being our new release hop post, we are happy to announce that we are collaborating with Tracey McNeely and her team for her annual 25 days of Christmas Tags.  I'll be sharing my tag using some of the new goodies with you in just a moment.  Before I get to the creations I have to share today, let's recap this awesome release!

WINTER WONDER

 

STAMPS

 
 
 
 
. . . . .

CONFETTI CUTS

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 . . . . .
My first project today is a card using a few of the new release goodies and might be my favorite creation of late...
I started with a card base created from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock.  From there I layered a panel that was run through with the new STITCHED BURSTS Cover Panel.  It's a very subtle detail and I love it!
The hearts are cut from the new HUGGABLE Confetti Cuts die set in BRICK, FLAMINGO, PIGGY BANK, RUST, TANGERINE, BUTTERCUP, LIME GREEN, RC AQUA, ICED AQUA, NAVY, ROYAL PURPLE and GRAPE SODA cardstocks.  I added coordinating enamel dots on a few for a little added detail to this card.
 
The sentiment is from the new THANK YOU stamp set and is cut and matted with the new coordinating Confetti Cuts die set. 
 
. . . . . .
A BIG THANK YOU to Tracey McNeely for inviting us back for another year of her spectacular 25 Days of Christmas Tags.  This is such a fun event for the crafting community and we are so happy to be a part of it again!  Be sure to check out all the details of this event and how to enter for a chance to win, too, on her blog (graphic below is linked)
 
My Christmas tag is created from the new CIRCLE TAG Confetti Cuts die set...
The base tag is cut from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock.  The second layer is cut from BRICK cardstock and is also cut with the lacing detail circle and the heart from the HUGGABLE Confetti Cuts die set.
For the images on this tag, I used the new HUGGABLE hugging mice along with a tree from last year's TRIANGLE TREES stamps and coordinating Confetti Cuts.  I tucked a heart cut from ROSE cardstock and tucked it behind the cute lil' mice friends.
I added this tag to a box filled with some of my favorite sugar free candies.  If you haven't tried Russell Stover's SF candies, you really should...they are so good.  Honestly, I was surprised even though so many people told me they loved them. 
. . . . .

Ok, it's time for me to send you on your way to see what the rest of the Confetti Crew and our very special 'Fetti Friends have to share with you today.

    We have just a couple more reveals to share with you today.  In this season of thankfulness, I wanted to be sure to include a set that says just that (and so much more)!
    THANK YOU
    Sentiments partially blocked by watermark:
    "your kindness is very much appreciated"
    "from the bottom of my heart"
    Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...
    This is a 2 piece die set that cuts out the words separately and also features a layering/matting die.
    . . . . .
    I'm not sure if I send more thank you, birthday or hello cards.  Those are definitely my top three and I always want to have something fresh and fun to work with for those occasions (ok, hello isn't an "occasion," but you know what I mean). 
    I paired the THANK YOU stamps and dies with a couple of the other new sets to make these cards to share with you today...
    . . . . .
    To create the card smaller square card, I started with a card base measuring 4.25" square.  I cut the "lacing circle" from the new CIRCLE TAG Confetti Cuts die set in the center of the card and then laced doubled up linen thread through it.
    The bear, from the new HUGGABLE stamp set is colored with Copic markers and is mounted on the solid circle die from the HUGGABLE Confetti Cuts die set.  The hearts are cut from PREMIER POLAR WHITE and LEAD cardstock with the new HUGGABLE Confetti Cuts die set.
    I added the sentiments, stamped in MIDNIGHT ink, in 2 strips below the circle.  The finishing touches are the enamel dots that are added to the card, matching the heart (as best as I could, at least).
    . . . . .
    The other card that I have to share with you today pairs the THANK YOU stamps and Confetti Cuts dies with the new THE BEST DAYS stamps and Confetti Cuts.
    I embossed the floral image in clear embossing powder on the base of the card.  The main focal floral image is embossed with black embossing powder and colored with Copic markers.
    The THANK YOU sentiment is stamped in MIDNIGHT ink and cut out and stacked on top of the clear embossed floral image on the bottom of the card.  I added a few sequins to finish off the card.
    . . . . .
    Ok, off you go to see what the rest of the team and our 'Fetti Friends have to share with you today.  HINT: it's amazing!  Don't forget to leave a little love along the way for a chance to win!

    Wouldn't you love to send a holiday hello with this darling new set?

    BIRDIE BUDDIES

    Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...
    Yesterday, I introduced you to one of the two Cover Panel Confetti Cuts that are part of this release.  Today, I introduce you to...

    SNOW STARS COVER PANEL

    . . . . .
    My first card today features both the new BIRDIE BUDDIES, along with the new SNOW STARS Cover Panel Confetti Cuts die...
    This card measures 4.25" square.  I used the SQUARE & CIRCLE FRAME Confetti cuts on the base of the card.  The main image panel is the circle from the SQUARE & CIRCLE FRAME Confetti Cuts die and the new SNOW STARS Cover Panel Confetti Cuts die. I layered a piece of gold cardstock under to bring a little bling to this project.
    The birdies and branch are colored with Copic markers (yes, I finally put away the Zig watercolors for a minute...lol!).
    In the center of the snow stars, I added a tiny rhinestone.  I love this finishing touch!
    Here you can see how it is popped up a little and the dimension that this card has.
    . . . . .
    Next up in our critter intros is possibly my favorite critter set to date (but really, how can I pick of favorite?!)...

    HUGGABLE

    Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...
    And to go along with these cute critter sets, a new word Confetti Cuts die...

    WARM HUGS

    . . . . .
    Put them together for fun lil' giftie sets like this...
    On the card, I layered patterned paper from the new WINTER WONDER 6x6 paper pad along with a panel cut with the new STITCHED BURSTS Cover Panel Confetti Cuts die and added the hugging cats and heart from the HUGGABLE set.
    I layered the WARM HUGS in both Navy and Premier Polar White cardstocks.  the heart is stamped in Magenta ink and tucked under "warm hugs."
    I added the "for my friend" sentiment from the HUGGABLE stamp set, stamped in Navy under "warm hugs."  I love the combination of the sentiments on this card.
    Do you see another new release product?  Yes, you sure do!
    We have a great new tag that is coming out with this release that lends itself to so many possibilities...

    CIRCLE TAG

    This is a THREE piece die set - the outer tag, a circle created from the circles/holes and the plain inner circle.  Use them in combination with each other for unique and fun tags!
    I kept it pretty simple here on the tag that I added to the hot cocoa packets...
    I cut the base of the tag from the patterned paper from the new WINTER WONDER 6x6 paper pad.  From there I created a tag with the center cut out from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock.  I popped up the white tag with dimensional adhesive.
    The "warm hugs" words are cut from PREMIER POLAR WHITE, SALSA and FLAMINGO cardstocks to create a fun dimensional focal point to this tag.
    . . . . .

    Ok, now it's time for me to give YOU a warm hug and send you on your way to see what the rest of the Confetti Crew has in store for you today...

    Greetings, 'Fetti Fans and welcome to DAY ONE of the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI!  This is our final release of the year and we are so excited to bring so many fabulous new goodies to you.  Everything will be available on November 8th.  In this release, we have 5 new stamp sets, 9 new Confetti Cuts die sets and a new 6x6 paper that will make you swoon!
    . . . . .
    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…

    . . . . .
    Ok, you know how this works!  Sit back, relax and enjoy all of the reveals and Confetti Creativity we have to share with you today!
    First up in our introductions is a super cool new 6x6 paper pad with such an awesome mix of Confetti Colors that is great for winter projects, but the neutral patterns will keep you reaching for it all year long...
    WINTER WONDER
    Coordinating Confetti Colors: Abyss, Royal Purple, Baby Blue, Blueberry, Magenta, RC Aqua
    . . . . .
    Included in this release are a couple of floral sets.  The first one is based around sympathy and letting someone know that you care.  The floral images are of bluebells and pair so beautifully with the scripty sentiments...
    BEAUTIFUL MEMORIES
    Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...

     As noted on each of the product pages for new product...

    You will notice a “support design, not crime” watermark on all of Reverse Confetti’s new designs as we are discouraging the blatant theft of our original artwork.  We apologize that this may block part of the product graphic.  We encourage you to view the project pictures on our site to get a full view of the product.  Note, this is only a watermark and is not part of the product or packaging.  We appreciate your support and understanding.
    . . . . .
    Before I get to my first card of the day, I would like to introduce one of two Cover Panel Confetti Cuts dies in this release...
    STITCHED BURST COVER PANEL
    The size of this Confetti Cuts Cover Panel is an A2 size, but there is no cutting edge.  This is advantageous for those working on a larger surface and would like to make consecutive cuts, creating a continuous pattern.  Of course, it's easy to use for a card front, too.  Just cut an A2 size panel and run through with this die. Or, you can cut it down even further like I did on this card...
    The circle is cut from the SQUARE & CIRCLE FRAME Confetti Cuts die set and then run through with the new STITCHED BURST Cover Panel Confetti Cuts die.  I love the subtle texture it gives.
    There are both uplifting and sympathy sentiments included in this set.  For this card, I chose the uplifting "love & prayers" sentiment and placed it right in between a couple of the bursts...
    The flowers are colored with Zig Watercolor pens...
    On the tall panel, behind the circle I also stamped a couple of the bluebell images and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  Such a simple, yet elegant, detail to add to this card...
     . . . . .
    The second introduction for today is a large bouquet set that contains several everyday sentiments...
    THE BEST DAYS
    Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...
     . . . . .
    I am in love with how big this image is!  It makes such a beautiful statement on a card front.
    The image is watercolored and layered on a matted panel with the sentiment going across the stems...
    I pulled out some clear Nuvo drops and added a little bit of embossed like detail to the flowers, as well as some gold glitter to the balled stems...
    . . . . .

    Now it's time for me to send you on your way to see what the rest of the Confetti Crew has so share with you today!

     
     


     

    'FETTI FRIEND INTROS

    Hello, 'Fetti Fans and Happy Sunday!  We have a new release coming up and new 'Fetti Friends that will be joining us for the remainder of the year.  Our COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI starts in just a couple of days.  Stay tuned for all the great new releases goodies!
    . . . . . .
    Today, I am thrilled to introduce our 2 'Fetti Friends for November and December...
    Hello! I’m Channin Pelletier and I live in sunny Arizona with my husband and our two sweet daughters. I’m a long time stamper and papercrafter. I actually started back in junior high with carving my own stamps from erasers for handmade cards and scrapbook pages. My current crafty obsession is definitely cardmaking!! It’s difficult for me to nail down my style, I’m bit of chameleon! I love clean and simple designs, coloring critters and flowers, and even constructing interactive cards! But overall I love trying to come up with designs that are unique or unexpected!
    Hi!  I'm Daniel West, from Providence, Rhode Island. In March of 2018, I began stamping and making cards after a friend of mine showed me her own videos and tutorials. Now, cardmaking has captured my heart and given me an artistic outlet for the creativity I had hidden away inside. I have found the crafting community so very warm, welcoming and encouraging. I hope to continue this same spirit and help inspire other beginning cardmakers with my videos and cards. Along with sitting at my workspace delighting over paper, stamps and ink, I pastor a church full-time, and lead my family, Paula, Helena, Jake and Micah, to serve God and our city with love.

    Hello Fetti friends! I'm excited to be sharing my card with you for this month's Stock Your Stash Challenge! Christmas and Winter will be here before we know it and no matter how many cards I've made, I'll always need more! I used some of my favorites from the last release on today's card!

    I've made a few cards using the Joyous Holiday stamp set , but none of them use this particular angel. I just love her tooting her horn! LOL! To begin this design, I stamped her using black ink as well as the foliage from the Joys of the Season stamp set and colored them using Copic markers. Once they were done, I die cut them using the Joys of the Season Confetti Cuts and the Joyous Holiday Confetti Cuts and sprinkled them with glitter here and there!

    The background was created by die cutting a piece of Brick cardstock using the All the Stars Confetti Cuts and adhering it to a standard A2 topfolding card base using foam squares. This set the stage to add the rest of the design elements. I die cut a piece of pattern paper from the This and That pattern paper pad using the Rounded Stitched Window Confetti Cuts and then added a white frame using the same Confetti Cut, but using them both together! I adhered those together using foam squares for dimension.

    The sentiment, which is from the Joyous Holiday stamp set, is heat embossed in gold for some holiday shine! I placed it at the bottom of the window using additional foam squares and trimmed the sides to fit the card base. At this point, I was able to add the angel and the greenery that I had previously stamped and die cut.
    I had so much fun working on this card; my only regret is I only made one! LOL! I hope you get a chance to join us this month!
    . . . . .
    Hello there!  Audrey here with a new Stock Your Stash Challenge!  The November challenge is Holiday/Winter!

    Snowmen are my favorite!  I love them for holiday and winter, and living in Florida, stamped snowmen are all that I get!  To create my card, I started off with a piece of 4" x 5.25" watercolor paper.  I used Distress inks in Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch to watercolor a background for my snowmen.  I stamped the snowmen and snowball pile from the Cool Friend stamp set, colored them with Copic markers, and diecut them with the coordinating Cool Friend Confetti Cuts dies.  I popped them up on the panel with foam tape.
    November SYS 1
    I stamped a sentiment from the Cool Friend stamp set on a strip of white cardstock, and used that to ground the snowmen.  To finish off my card, I added some white gel pen accents and falling now using Nuvo Drops before mounting it on an A2 card base cut from Polar White cardstock.
