Reverse Confetti - Nuts About You

Hey there!   It's funny how when it turns the hottest in the summer, I am ready to break out the Fall and Christmas stamp sets!  It could be all that the fall decorations are starting to appear every where you look.  I saw this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and knew immediately that I wanted to create a fall card using the Reverse Confetti Nuts About You stamp set.  

I colored up the squirrel, pumpkin and mushroom from the stamp set and die cut them out with the Nuts About You Confetti Cuts.   I used Premier Polar White card stock and used my Copic markers to color them in.   I love this card stock for Copic marker coloring!    I needed a circle for my little grouping and decided to use the Fall for You stamp set and colored the wreath image again with my Copic markers.    

The pattern paper is from the Fun Times 6x6 paper pad.   I stamped a sentiment from Nuts about You on the patterned paper.   My little grouping was placed onto a Cloud White card base and I used lot's of foam tape to add dimension to the card.   I added a couple colored jewels and some clear sparkle using my Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle pen.    

Here is the link to the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches!   Let me know if you are ready to break out the holiday sets or still hanging onto summer!   I hope you have an excellent day!    Thank you for stopping by!

Happy Birthday Jen! Reverse Confetti Blog Hop

It's Jen's Birthday!  We are celebrating Jen today with a surprise birthday hop! It is so much fun to celebrate such the special day for such a kind and giving person.  I decide to create a birthday card for Jen from the Mod Floral Stack stamp set.   It is one of my all time favorite stamp sets from Reverse Confetti There is just so much that you can do with this stamp set!  

I started off by stamping with Reverse Confetti Bellini, Coral and Flamingo ink onto Cloud White card stock.   I used the Mod Floral Stack and created a patterned background.   I trimmed it down and added a Flamingo panel.  I mounted the finished background onto a Stormy card base.  

  For my main focal point, I wanted to create a jeweled birthday crown and used the new Pattern Builder Confetti Cuts to mimic the crown.   I die cut it with some glittered card stock and added some clear droplets for my jewels.    To make it more of a embellishment, I did add three layers of Stormy card stock that had been die cut as well from the Pattern Builder Confetti Cuts and stacked them together. 

For my sentiment, I die cut Midnight card stock with the Flowers for Mom banner and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Mod Floral Stack.   I only inked up a part of one of the greeting so that it fit nicely on my banner.   

Please hop along to all the Birthday stops!  I cannot wait to see all the birthday fun that the Design Team has created for Jen!    The full hop list is below!   Thank you so much for stopping by!

Reverse Confetti August Blog Hop!

We are hopping this month and sharing our projects using Reverse Confetti Patterned Papers!  You should have hopped to me from the very talented, Amy Sheffer!   For todays hop, I created a birthday card and treat using the new Cue the Confetti 6x6 paper pad!   I paired it with the Moon Men stamp set, Birthday Wishes and the new Geo Panel Confetti Cuts!   

For my birthday card, I trimmed down several of the patterned papers to place behind the Geo Panel that had been die cut with Premier Polar White cardstock.   I used more of the patterned paper and trimmed down attach to my card base and it was trimmed to 4 x 5 1/4 inches and placed on a Polar White card base.  

I used some Royal Purple ink to stamp the sentiment onto a Pierced Round Top Layers Confetti Cuts, the sentiment is from Birthday Wishes.    Reverse Confetti store provides you with the color of ink or paper that is used in each paper pad.   In the Cue the Confetti  paper pad, the following colors are used: Salsa, Magenta, Tangerine, Sunshine, Parakeet, Iced Aqua and Royal Purple.   This makes it easy for you to select inks and cardstocks that will match the paper pad. 

I love the rainbow colors in the Cue the Confetti paper pad so I decided to create a treat box full of Skittles to match the paper pad.   I filled a Mini Treat Box with yummy Skittles and then wrapped it with more patterned paper from Cue the Confetti.   

I decided to add a tag using the Dashed Line Tag cut from Royal Purple cardstock and added some more images from the Moon Men stamp set.  I tied my tag off with some yellow ribbon from my stash.   

That is it for me today!  I hope you have fun hoping around and get inspired by all the patterned paper projects!    I cannot wait to hop along myself!  Next up on the hop list is Kelly Lunceford!  She always has such fabulous creations!   I have the full hop list below for you to check out! 

Thank you for stopping by!

Reverse Confetti - Mod Floral Stack & Nuts about You

Hello!    I am joining in the Color Throwdown Challenge and Addicted to CAS today and sharing a card I made with the Reverse Confetti Mod Floral Stack stamp set and Confetti Cuts - this time using the stamp set to create mushrooms for my little scene!  

  I started off with the Stitched Square Confetti Cuts and trimmed some white card stock down and then added it to a 4 1/4 card base.   I stamped the smallest floral with Salsa ink onto Premier Polar White card stock along with the porcupine from Nuts About You.   I colored the porcupine with my Copic markers.   

  I trimmed down some green patterned paper from the Cheerful & Kind paper pad with the Stitched Squares and the grassy border die in the Nuts About You Confetti Cuts set.    For my "mushrooms", I added some stems using the tree trunk from the Honey Bear stamp set with Stone ink.   

Here is a close up of the mushrooms! 

I stamped a sentiment from the Mod Floral Stack stamp set with Midnight ink onto some Stone cardstock strip.    I covered my clouds from Honey Bear with some crystal glitter.    Here is a link for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge.    Here is the link for the Addicted to CAS - Summertime.

Happy Thursday!   We are so close to the weekend!  YEAH!    I am sharing a card that I created for the Reverse Confetti Stock Your Stash Challenge!    This month's theme is Baby.   I decided to mix my baby colors and used both Pink and Blue for my card.      

I used the new Pattern Builder Stamp set and inked it tone on tone with Reverse Confetti Mist ink onto Mist cardstock.  I added some pattern paper from Forever My Love paper pad to a card panel and then added my Mist stamped panel to the card base.  I then stamped my little Koala bear from the Bear Hugs stamp set onto Premier Polar White cardstock and colored with my Copic Markers.  

 I  trimmed it down with the Scalloped Squares Confetti Cuts.    I also trimmed down some Rose cardstock with the Scalloped Squares and trimmed down several more with the white cardstock to create a dimensional frame.   My sentiment comes from an oldie but goodie called Bitty Banners.   I used the Bitty Banner Confetti Cut to trim it out.

My Favorite Things - Sweet Succulents and Saddle Up & Celebrate

I am on a roll using some of my new but not used stash!   Today I am sharing a card that I made with two stamps sets from my new stash box!   One I am sad to say I have had for a really long time and the other was one that I just got! :-)   I am playing along with Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Use a Die or a Punch.  

I ink blended a panel of Bristol Smooth card stock with Abandoned Coral and Wild Honey Distress Inks and then splattered the panel.   I ink blended another panel of Bristol Smooth and this time used Gathered Twigs and Vintage Photo and splattered it as well.   I trimmed this brown panel down with the MFT Scenic Safari border dies (looks like it is retired!).   

I stamped my images from Sweet Succulents, Saddle Up & Celebrate and Beary Big Adventure with Black Licorice Hybrid ink onto Neenah cardstock.    I colored the images with Copic markers.    For the sentiment I used the Stitched Oval Word Windows and stamped my sentiment onto the card base that was made out of heavy weight Smooth White cardstock.    I added some orange and pink jewels from Little Things from Lucy.   

 I layered up my desert with some foam tape onto the panel onto the Abandoned Coral and Wild Honey panel.    I then add my images, popping some up with foam tape.     This card is off to special friend in Texas!  Hey Julie!!!    

That is it for me!   Also, check out my Instagram account, right now, I have a Giveaway for a Reverse Confetti Mod Floral Stack stamp set!   The Giveaway will close on Saturday, July 28th at 11 pm EST.      

I hope you have a great day!  Thanks for stopping by!

Reverse Confetti - Greatest Adventure & Mod Floral Stack

Happy day to you!  I hope you are having a wonderful day.    I am sharing a card I made for the Color Throwdown Challenge this week.    The colors for the challenge are cobalt blue, aqua and grey.   You can also add any neutrals to the card as well.  I decided to make a sparkling ocean for the two little guys from Greatest Adventure stamp with the with Mod Floral Stack.    

I really love the Mod Floral Stack stamp set.  You can do so many things with this set.   Take a peek at the Reverse Confetti Pinterest board for this stamp set and you will see what I mean.   Also, if you follow me on Instagram, then hop on over as I will be giving away the Mod Floral Stack stamp set that I picked up from my local stamp store, Impressive Ideas!!

 I used several Reverse Confetti inks for my card; Island Blue, Iced Aqua and Stone ink.   I used my MISTI stamping tool to stamp out the pattern but instead of moving my card around I would position my stamp on an empty stamp pocket and used my grid transparency to make sure that they stayed lined up on the card panel.     The sentiment is from the new stamp set, The Most Beauty.   I stamped it in Versafine Onyx Black and then clear heat embossed it.   I trimmed the panel down to 3 3/4 by 5 and popped it up on a Stone card base.  

I stamped my two little critters from Greatest Adventure onto Premier Polar White card stock and colored with my Copic markers.   I made sure to stay with neutral colors and added just a pinch of blue to tie to the card panel.    I die cut them out with the Greatest Adventure Confetti Cuts.   I added a little bit of sparkle with my Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle pen.    For a final touch, I added some clear crystal droplets. 

Guess what?   Reverse Confetti is having a huge Summer Sale!   You can check the store out here and start shopping for all those items on your wish list!   Everything in the store is 20% off when you order $50 or more!
