Reverse Confetti - Sweet Holiday

Happy Sunday!  I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving weekend!   We had a wonderful time and I have enjoyed the time off.  I have been busy putting up my holiday decorations and making a gingerbread house.   To keep in the gingerbread theme, I made a card using the super cute Reverse Confetti Sweet Holiday stamp set.    I played along with The Paper Players Sketch Challenge #372 for my card today.  

I stamped my images on Reverse Confetti Premier Polar White and used my Copics to color them in. I used the Sweet Holiday Confetti Cuts to cut all the images out.     I paired the stamp set with the Cheerful & Kind paper pad.    The sentiment is from Kitchen Love and was stamped and white heat embossed on Rose cardstock.   

Here is a picture of my house.  I am not a Gingerbread pro - much better at card making!   Each year, I try to do something different - this one is called the Hot Chocolate house.    I used a bunch of leftover Halloween candy and bags of marshmallows for the house and snow.   

Here is the link for the Paper Players Sketch Challenge this week!

Stamptember - Hello Pumpkin

I finally got to ink up this stamp set that I got back in Simon Says Stamptember.    I loved this collaboration set from Neat and Tangled.   Fall is almost over and I had not inked it up!    I am joining in the challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Furry Friends.  

I stamped and colored my images with Copic Markers.   I think I stamped every image in the set and almost used every single one of them for the card :-)

I created a scene using some Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Fall paper and inked around the edges.   I die cut a frame using the My Favorite Things Single Stitched Line Oval frames using SU Early Espresso cardstock.    I then cut another oval frame from Primitive White card stock and some Kraft. I inked with Tumbled Glass on the Primitive white and inked the edges of the Kraft and stamped my sentiment.   

I then added my images flat to the card and added some clear Pico Embellisher to the pumpkin and apple.   

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

Reverse Confetti - Cool Friends

Happy Saturday!   I hope that you have had a great day!   I played along with the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge this week.   The theme was to make a card around an outdoor winter activity, so who doesn't love to build snowmen!    I had this idea in my head to build a posse of snowman on this card and I think it turned out pretty darn cute!  

I used the Reverse Confetti Cool Friends stamp set and stamped and masked several images of the snowman till I filled the bottom part of the card full.   I used the Premier Polar White cardstock from Reverse Confetti.   I tell you it is becoming my favorite cardstock to use my Copics.   Not only do the Copics blend nicely on it but so does ink!    To make it easy to cut the masks, I layered several full sticky post it notes together and cut several out at a time.    This made the fussy cutting the masks so easy.    

Reverse Confetti is already having a Black Friday Sale with 25% off your entire order!  The new release is included in the sale!   Hop over there and get a jump start on your Black Friday deals!   

I then colored the images with Copic markers and added some details either with a Copic or a Sakura White Gel pen.   Some Clear Wink of Stella was added here and there and then I put Clear Pico Embellisher  on each of the snowman noses.  Once it was dry, I added a white highlight with the gel pen to the large snowman.   

I ink blended some Tumbled Glass Distress ink and then on the top part of the card I used Reverse Confetti Iced Aqua ink.    While the masks were on the snowman, I splattered with Copic Opaque white that had been watered down a little for my snow in the sky.     I then stamped a sentiment from the Sno Awesome stamp set and white embossed it.  I trimmed the panel down and then layered on some white card stock and then added it to a piece of Stone card base.    I added some red/white twine to finish the card off. 

Thanks for stopping by to visit with me today!

Reverse Confetti November SFYTT

There is a new Sketch Challenge at Reverse Confetti!   This month there was a new release, so I decided to use the new paper pad, Cheerful & Kind to kick start my mojo and decided to pair it with the new Cool Friends stamp set.   I 💜for any kind of snowman so I adore this new stamp set.  

Below is the sketch for you to play along,  be sure to link up on the November SFYTT for a chance to win a prize!   

I trimmed down several of the patterned papers from Cheerful & Kind along with some Lime Green to match the sketch and just adhered them straight to a Stone card base.  I used the Fa La La circle Confetti Cut and die cut from some white card stock.  

I stamped the Cool Friends images onto Premier Polar White cardstock.   If you have not tried this cardstock yet with Copic markers, you need to give it a try!   They blend so nicely on this paper.   
I used the colors from the papers to color my snowman.  I die cut them using the Cool Friends Confetti Cuts and then set them off the circle with some foam tape.   I then decided to take my sentiment stamp and curve it to match the curve of the circle.   I added some sequins and used my clear sparkle with a brush pen to add final little details.  

I hope that you get a chance to play along with this month's sketch and be sure to link up for a chance to win a gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti Store!    All the details can be found on the SFYTT link on the Reverse Confetti Blog!  

Thank you for stopping by!

Reverse Confetti Christmas Cheer

Hey there!  Happy Sunday!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  I am playing along this week with the (PIN)spirational Challenge #203.   See the image below which you are to use to inspire you.   I decided to create a card with red as my primary color in my card.    I used new products from the Reverse Confetti November release that is now available! 

For my card base, I used partial die cutting to extend the Scalloped Squares and extended it to cover the entire panel.   Die cut the top half using your plate and only cover what you want to die cut.  Then  move your die down and line up with the middle scallops and cover the bottom half with your plate and run thru the machine again.  It is super easy and can be used in so many ways.   

I then took the negative panel and ran that thru with the Large Diamond Cover Panel.    I then layered the Scalloped Square and the Large Diamond panel over a A2 card base with foam tape.   I love the stitching details and the scalloped edge, this is one of my new favorite dies.  

Next I stamped my images from the Christmas Cheer stamp set onto Premier Polar White cardstock.   I just love to use my Copic Markers on this paper, the colors blend together so nicely.   It has become my new favorite.    I used only red markers to color my images and  added some sparkling glitter to the hats and the details on the outfits.   Here is a close up of all that sparkle!  I die cut the images with the Christmas Cheer Confetti Cuts. 

I then stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from the Christmas Cheer stamp set onto a strip of black card stock and placed it on the white panel with foam tape and placed my images on the panel with foam tap as well.   

 Thanks for stopping by today!    I hope that I have inspired you to create some Christmas Cheer of your own! 

I am entering this card into the following additional challenges: 

and the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Snow White  my card is mostly white!
