Hello!  Amy Kolling here sharing a card that is hard for most of us to make.  We never want to make one but we need to have some on hand for those occasions.  


With Sympathy 

Using the leaf sprig image from Bold Blooms, I stamped them in Lead and Stone Reverse Confetti inks.  I thought to give the card some cheer, I thought I would add a little color with the floral image.  They were stamped in Iced Aqua, Sunshine, and Flamingo inks.  I kept this simple and added my images in a wreath shape around the circle from the Big Stripes Cover PanelI also die cut a piece of Lead cardstock using the Big Stripes Cover Panel. Then, I inlaid the Lead cardstock strips in place with liquid glue.  The sentiment from Sentimental Sayings, was stamped in Lead ink in the center of the circle.  As the last touch, the florals were added with foam adhesive.

LIFTING YOU UP IN PRAYER

Hi Fetti Friends! It's Kelly here today! Sympathy cards are never fun to make, but always needed, unfortunately! I always like to create floral designs for my sympathy cards because flowers are so cheery and colorful! For today's clean and fresh sympathy card, I used some fun new products as well as some of my other favorites!

To begin this design, I die cut the new Circle of Hearts Cover Panel out of white cardstock. I also die cut the largest frame from the Stitched Note Frames Confetti Cuts out of white cardstock. I set those aside and began stamping the floral images.

These two floral clusters are from the new Happy Mail stamp set and work beautifully for cards and envelopes alike. I used them on the pink envelope as you can see! Here's a tip for stamping on envelopes, especially if you plan on coloring the envelopes with Copic markers like I did HERE, slide a panel of scrap cardstock inside the envelope before coloring so it doesn't bleed through.

Since I used a colorful envelope, I skipped the coloring for today. In fact, it is because of this fun new Happy Mail stamp set that I upped my envelope game and purchased a whole bunch of new ones to dress up!

The sentiment,which is from the Sentimental Gems stamp set, is heat embossed in gold onto a strip of vellum. I wrapped it around the Heart panel and secured it with Tombow tape adhesive. I layered the frame over the top using foam squares for some dimension.

Once all of the flowers were colored, I die cut them using the coordinating Happy Mail Confetti Cuts and added them to the card using foam squares. You'll want to make sure that your card will still be mailable in your pretty stamped envelope, so check your local post office for guidelines. I use the "non-machinable" butterfly postage stamp on many of my envelopes!

The entire piece is layered onto a top folding A2 card base with foam squares. I love the way the hearts look floating above the base; it really creates a nice effect.

The finishing touch is a trio of sparkling clear sequins attached with liquid glue for some sparkle. I plan on giving it a spritz or two of Shimmer Spray before I send it. I usually don't do that step until after I photograph my cards since it can be distracting in photos, but in real life it is BEAUTIFUL! 

FOR ALL THAT YOU DO

Hello Fetti Fans! Ali here and thanks so much for joining me on the Reverse Confetti Blog! I'm having more fun with the new release today especially with the lovely Bold Blooms Stamp and Die set! If colouring is not your thing or you just need a break from it (I know I do sometimes!), these solid floral stamps are perfect for non-colouring-in projects.
A variety of flowers (large and small) and options with leaves and foliage - there's so much you can do with them! 
Pink and Grey would have to be one of my all time favorite colour combinations and I love flower cards done in simple colour selections too. I have stamped the flowers in pink/purples (Distress Oxide Inks in Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet) with Grey accents (Hickory Smoke). The leaves are Peeled Paint and Pine Needles Oxide colours.  
I stamped the flowers/leaves and corresponding feature stamps on white cardstock and die-cut them out with the corresponding dies. I stamped the sentiment from the new Sentimental Sayings set - love the dual sentiments and there are a range of occasions covered in the set which I also love! This was stamped in Versamark ink and white embossed on a grey card strip. I used the Diagonal Stitched Cover Panel to create a background piece and adhered all elements to this. Added to a white card base added a few pearl drops and it was done! 
So elegant and pretty (with no colouring-in required!).

LEMONADE PALS

Hey there!   It's Tricia here today sharing some of the new products from the latest July release!    I used the new Lemonade Stand stamp set along with the new Circle of Hearts Cover Panel to create this cute card.  I am trying to stretch outside my normal mode of Copic coloring and play more with my watercolor pens.  The images from Dawn Machell's line at Reverse Confetti are really great to experiment with when you are trying new mediums!   I love their sweet whimsical style and you really can't go wrong with how you color them.  They are so darn cute!  






I stamped the images from Lemonade Stand onto Bristol Smooth cardstock and clear heat embossed to make it much easier to watercolor and stay within the lines!    I used a mixture of watercolor pens from Arteza and Zig Real Color Brush Markers to color the images.    I die cut them out with the Lemonade Stand Confetti Cuts.   I just love how the basket and the lemonade stand have the interior pieces cut out as well!  Love that detail!





For my card base, one of my favorite cardstock color combinations is aqua and yellow, so I used the RC Aqua and Bumblebee cardstock along with Cloud White to set my scene.   I die cut the Cloud White cardstock with the Circle of Hearts Cover Panel and then backed it with the RC Aqua cardstock.   I stamped my sentiment onto the Bumblebee strip and clear embossed it as well.   I backed it with another stripe of Cloud White cardstock and then added it to the card panel.   I then added all my images from Lemonade Stand to the panel with foam tape.   





That is it for me today!    I hope you will join me in trying something outside your comfort zone, a new coloring medium or a new technique!  

SO VERY HAPPY

 Hello everyone! Hope you having a great week so far!  It’s Olga and I have a card to share with you.

I started off by stamping the florals from  Spring Pals. Then I colored it and cut with Confetti Cuts. I cut “celebrate “ from Party & Celebrate Confetti Cuts repeatedly and  glued each letter together.
I colored background with marker and applied Geo Panel Confetti Cuts to it.


Then  I made the sun from Rainy Day Fun .I connected all details of my card together and added the sentiment from Word Up.
Have a nice day!!!

HOW DO YOU MAKE A HIPPO WOBBLE?

Hello all and thank you for stopping by today. Olga Moss is here. Check out another card idea using our new stamp sets

For this post I created a fun and interactive card – the hippos are attached using a wobble and wobbles freely creating a really WOW factor. 


So I stamped several images from the Hippo Pool PartyLemonade Stand and Let's Shellabrate stamp sets onto Premier Polar White paper. Than I used Copic markers and did some coloring.

I cut images out using coordinating dies.Then I toned two piece of paper using Baby BlueIsland Blue and RC Aqua Dye Inks and cut out two large shapes using Bubbles Confetti Cuts, imitating a lake. For brightness and interesting effect I sprinkled them with white watercolor drops.


To create the background I used craft paper, which I toned with Sand Dye Ink and also sprinkled it with white and brown watercolor drops. 


The next step was to adhered the lakes and the images on the panel. But only hippos I glued on the wobblers. It's so much fun to play with shaking elements!


I also added a sentiment and to finish this card I added a few crystals. 
Thanks for joining me and I’ll see you again next time!!
Olga xx

Hi there! Deanne here sharing a happy vibrant card with you all today. 

I started with blending Brick and Salsa inks and cutting the background out with Stitched Note and Frames Confetti Cuts.



Next a made a simple rectangle, ombre blended Iced Aqua ink and added a Sentimental Sayings sentiment.



I created a many flowers from Bold Blooms (and coordinating Confetti Cuts) stamped in Iced Aqua and RC Aqua, Buttercup and Bumblebee, Magenta and Wine, and Tangerine inks.



I arranged the blooms which I attached using different height dimension dots and lastly added black liquid dots.








MAKIN' A SPLASH

Thanks for stopping by! Jeanne here today! I love to make cards and my absolute favorites are those that create a scene.
Doesn't this look like a snapshot from the beach? A perfect summer day captured? The details are what brings a scene to life. The Hippo Pool Party has all the accessories that steal the show. A towel, umbrella, tote bag, beach ball and even sunglasses for Ms. Hippo!
The background is simple to create. I cut waves from scrap paper and used them as a mask to ink the sand and sky with distress ink. A good splatter of water adds some texture so it doesn't appear "flat".
Not a cloud in the sky today! Just a sunny sky cut with the Over the Rainbow sun. The sentiment is stamped directly on the distress ink background. 
Have fun making scenes with all the different Reverse Confetti images - there are so many to choose from that the possibilities are endless!

Good morning! Heather here this morning with a simple one layer card to share with you using the brand new July Reverse Confetti Release! I just got back from a long vacation, and jet lag has seemed to take it's toll, leaving me with a bit of crafter's block for some reason! But the beautiful Butterfly Blossoms and Sentimental Sayings kind of do all the work for you - and coloring is relaxing and easy, so it was the perfect way to kick start my crafting again! Not to mention...I have the perfect friend to pass this onto. While we were on vacation, she delivered her beautiful baby girl 6 weeks early, and is currently spending her days at the NICU working to get her strong enough to come home with them. So this is the perfect reminder for her!


I stamped my image and sentiment on a simple white cardbase, then just pulled out a variety of Copic markers to color the image in. This image is absolutely stunning, and so fun to color! In case you're interested, the Copic colors I used are: RV21, R32, YR02, YR82, Y11, Y21, YG01, YG03, B00, B02, B05, W0, and W1.


This is a nice flat and easy to mail card as well - although I do plan to hand deliver it!


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



SOMETHING SPECIAL

What do you give someone special who has everything?  One of my best friends and I have known each other for almost 40 years and always make it a priority to celebrate our birthdays with dinner and a thoughtful gift.  This year, I decided to make her something special instead of buying a gift.
I made this card folder from scratch (with a lot of trial and error!); the two pockets contain 5 cards and coordinating envelopes featuring Butterfly Blossoms, Happy Mail, and Sentimental Sayings from the new July release! Scroll through to see each of the cards and the products I used...
 
 For the folder, I used pattern papers from Cue the Confetti, Darling Dots and Sweet Stripes.  I also filled the RSVP pen cylinder with pattern paper too. This project was a labor of love and I hope my friend likes it!
