Hi, it's Amy T and I'm super excited to be sharing how the November Stock Your Stash Challenge inspired me.  I've been really smitten with the look of layering die cuts.  This card has a total of seven layers:
I started off with a Premier Polar White A2 panel.  I layered the Big Polka and Layering Scallop Circles Cover Panels.  The two different sized Circle Rays Duo were centered on the stacked panels.
I used the Holiday Bough set with the following copics:
YR0000 | YR01
E93 | YR02
YG0000 | YG01
BG10 | BG32
I happened to have the perfect shade of felt in my stash to use with the Warm Hugs confetti cuts.   Everything was framed out with the Stitched Note & Frames confetti cuts.
Tons of layers but still postal friendly.  I love the added texture that the felt adds to the design.
I can't wait to see how you're inspired!

Hello 'Fetti Fans! Hope you are all doing ok and enjoying some crafting time. It's Stock Your Stash time here at Reverse Confetti and we are feeling the festive/holiday vibe with this one! I wanted to remind you that you can use what is in your stash for creating festive/holiday cards even if they are not traditionally 'Christmas themed' sets. 
 I'm loving using the wonderful Sketched Florals to make Christmas cards lately - the leaves and 'berries' have a really festive feel when stamped in traditional colours (and its all very quick stamping, no coloring!).
 
To begin the card, I created the white background using the coordinating Layering Scallop Circles Cover Panel and the Big Polka Dots Cover Panel.  They look fabulous layered and in white, they are subtle but create some interest and dimension as a background. I stamped (of course, using my Misti - I am excitedly waiting for my new Misti to arrive) the floral images/leaves and berries with Memento Ink drops in Olive Grove, Cottage Ivy and Lady Bug.  I die cut them with the corresponding dies .
 
I used the Inside Scallop Circle tag die to create a coordinating base piece for my sentiment (from Joyful Holiday Wishes sentiment set - I adore the mix of fonts in this Christmas sentiment set).   I stamped the sentiment in Versamark Ink and white embossed it with Hero Arts White Fine Detail powder. 
I adhered the floral images behind my sentiment piece and then adhered to the base piece and white cardbase. 
Thanks for joining me and take care, happy crafting!!

SPOOKY

By Reverse Confetti
on October 31, 2020

Hello my 'Fetti Friends! Can you believe it's almost HALLOWEEN? I know that you're Halloween fun is going to be different depending on where you live .. here in my little town in Northwest Indiana Trick or Treat hours will proceed as normal. I'm always excited to see the costumes the kids will wear!
I've been experimenting more and more with Distress ink. I prefer the original over the oxide because the colors are so much BRIGHTER! Since discovering cosmetic brushes, beautiful blended backgrounds are easier than ever. I've found them in lots of different sizes on Amazon making it easier to ink smaller areas and add more layers to backgrounds. I used five shades of ink on this card !
If you look close you'll notice some of the FRIGHTENING FRIENDS images are adhered flat to the card base - like the tree, ghost, monster, and moon, while others are adhered with adhesive foam tape. This helps add dimension and bring the scene to life.
I love that the FRIGHTENING FRIENDS stamp sets include LOTS of accessory images that add lots of detail to the scene. Reverse Confetti has several Halloween sets to choose from and they are all perfectly sized to work together if you want to mix things up a bit.
There are several script font sentiment in the set to choose from.  This one is stamped directly on the distress background with Versafine ink for a crisp clean image.
Get your spooky on this Halloween - be safe and have a great time!


Finished Size 4.25 x  5.5"

I can't stress how much I love this JOY Confetti Cut. You see I am a SLOW crafter. Ridiculously slow.  Whenever I am in a pinch for time, I grab this die cut, make something fabulous, and it only takes me a a fraction of the time. Game changer people!!

My background is aqua polka dots from the Abundant Autumn paper pad and layered Stitched Note & Frames Confetti Cuts in Salsa and RC Aqua cardstock.


I used more polka dots from Winter Solstice paper pad for the Wreath of Joy. I love a good polka dot paper!


I used an aqua felt for the poinsettia petals and added a few enamel dots. And viola! All finished in record timing!






 

 












PICK OF THE PATCH

By Reverse Confetti

Hello Fetti Fans. I used he colors from this week's inspiration photo are kraft, red, green, and chartreuse. from the Color Throwdown Challenge.  

Loving the Pick of the Patch stamp set in this week's colors. I used Copics to color up the pieces and then cut out each one with the matching Pick of the Patch Confetti Cuts. I love all the different pumpkins and gourds that are out there now. I have a handful of them on my porch and I wanted to recreate a similar look on my card today. Although, honestly, this set up is way cuter than my front porch. lol.


The Circle Rays Duo Confetti cut was a fun backdrop for my scene. I blended on some Pistachio ink and then stamped the sentiment in Avocado ink. 



I always enjoy trying to come up with unexpected color combos for traditional images. Stepping away from the orange and yellows of fall colors was refreshing. Give it a try.

 Hey there! It's Tricia here today to share a Christmas card using the Peace Tree stamp set.   This stamp set allows you to build your own tree and decorate as you like with the additional stamps in the set.  I started off by stamping the tree and then used Parakeet, Lime Green and Avocado ink to build my tree.  


I then stamped the scalloped edge stamp with Rose ink to each of the edges.   For more pop, I added some gold embossed ornaments to the tree.   The base was stamped in Rose ink as well.   The tree was die cut using the largest circle from the Fa La La Circle Confetti Cut. 


I used the new Center Frame Cover Panel to create my base using Lead cardstock and then backed it with Salsa cardstock.   In one of the die cuts I stamped and embossed a sentiment from Joyful Holiday Wishes stamp set.  It fits perfectly into the space!  


I hope you have a wonderful day!

Hello, everyone!Olga with you today. I want to share with you a delicate bouquet.
 

I used Sketched Florals to start. I stamped it with inks and applied Confetti Cuts. I covered it with gilding  flakes.
Then I stamped the bouquet from Bowl of Blooms. I colored it with watercolor markers and applied Confetti Cuts.
 

I covered the base of my card with gilding  flakes. Then I toned pink cardstock with white permanent ink and cut the background using Cross Tiles Cover Panel Confetti Cuts.
 
I put all details of my card together. I made the title using Sketched Florals , hot embossing with white powder. 
I decorated it with dew drops and watercolor splashes.

Have a nice day!

Hello!  Amy Kolling sharing a holiday card using some of the recent new release!
 
The Center Frame Cover Panel was die cut in white card stock and the sentiment from Joyful Holiday Wishes was gold heat embossed at the bottom of the panel.  The Center Frame Cover Panel was layered with foam adhesive onto a piece of pattern paper from Winter Solstice 6x6 Paper Pad.  
 
 
The large swag image from Holiday Bough was Copic colored and embellished with a glitter pen and gold details.  The bough was added to the notecard using foam adhesive and a few gold gems were added for some glam.

SO SPOOKTACULAR

Hello!  Olga Moss here with you today. We are on the threshold of one of the most interesting and intriguing holidays - Halloween. So my post today is dedicated to this. I want to share a Halloween card with our new stamp set called Spooktacular.


To create my Halloween scene, I stamped super fun ghost and cute lil' pumpkin girl with different elements and die cut them using Spooktacular Confetti CutsI also wanted to add another element with a sign from the Pick of the Patch set. To add a more Halloween look to the sign, I  placed a creepy image from the Halloween Gnomes inside a pile of pumpkins and leaves using masking paper and my MISTI stamping tool. I added the sentiment BOO to the sign in the same way. I then colored the images using Copic Markers.


Next, I created the background. I ink blended Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Ink with Lagoon and Blueberry Dye Inks. To add some shine, I sprinkled all the elements with grey shiny acrylic paint.


The next step was to make a shaker. I die cut the large circle from the Circle Rays Duo Confetti CutsI then filled the shaker with mini bats to the center of the bottom panel with large circle and carefully lined up the front panel to create the shaker. And I adhered previously prepared images on the card.
To finish off this card I stamped the sentiment "Have a spooktacular day".


I hope this card inspired you today. 
Thank you for stopping by.

 Hey, Fetti Fans!  Fall has arrived which means it's time for apple cider, warm kettle corn and pumpkin everything!
 
For my card, I layered Sand cardstock onto the card base.  I then cut Dark Roast cardstock using the new Big Polkas Cover Panel and Cloud White cardstock with the new Layering Scallop Circles Cover Panel; adhered them together and popped them up to give dimension to the background.
 
I cut Tangerine cardstock with one of the Circle Rays Duo Confetti Cuts as a backdrop to the pumpkin patch and owl images from the Pick of the Patch set.  This darling bear has picked his favorite pumpkin - he's from the Big Bear set!
