Reverse Confetti - Stock Your Stash Challenge

Hey 'Fetti Fans!   This is the last Stock Your Stash Challenge of the year!   This month's theme is Thank You cards.    I used Honey Bear stamp set along with the Striped Circle Cover Panel.   I wanted a bright and cheery card.   The sun has not been out much lately, which has made me wish for Spring to come!     

I started with the Striped Circle Cover Panel and cut it out of white card stock.   I decided to put strips of RC Aqua, Iced Aqua and Mist card stock behind the Cover Panel and mounted to a white card base.    Next I stamped out some other images from the Honey Bear stamp set on Polar White card stock and colored with my Copic markers.    

I stamped the tree leaves with Avocado Ink onto Lime Green card stock and stamped the tree trunk onto Sand card stock with black ink.   I added some white details to the images with my white gel pen. 

Next I stamped a sentiment from Mod Floral Stack onto Midnight card stock and white heat embossed it.   I love the font of these sentiments!   So beautiful.

SugarPea Designs - Eskimo Kisses

Happy Day!   Getting so close to Christmas!  I am running just a tad behind and starting to feel that pressure of gifts that need to be wrapped and last minutes shopping to get done!  This will be the last Christmas card for me today!   I am playing along with the SugarPea Mix it Up Challenge with Eskimo Kisses stamp set.   This is such a cute stamp set and can be used for more than just Christmas but all winter long and even Valentine's Day!   The challenge has one side for anything goes and the other side is a little more Christmasy.    I did a little combo of both, I created a Christmas card with the Anything goes! 

I stamped my images onto Neenah card stock and colored with my Copic markers.   For the present, the pile of presents and the sled I trimmed the bottom slight and then added them together to look like one seamless stamp but it is actually three!   I call this techinque lazy masking. 😂

I die cut a piece of Bristol smooth card stock with the Zig Zag Stitched Circle from SugarPea Designs and ink blended with Simon Says Hot Mama ink and Black Soot Distress Ink on the edges.  I then splattered it with some white paint.   I added another die cut circle using Neenah and then created a slope for a snow slope for my little scene.    

I stamped the sentiment onto some Black Licorice card stock and then trimmed it down to a rectangle shape.   For my card base, I used the SugarPea Designs Arrow Cover Plate and die cut it with Neenah and then placed it onto a Neenah 110 lb card base.   This added some texture to the base without taking away from the ink blended scene.   My images were popped up with foam tape.   I added some dimensional glaze to the eyes of the bear.    

Here is the link for the SugarPea Designs Mix it Up Challenge.  There is still time to play along with this month's challenge!  

Happy Holiday!   Thank you for stopping by!

Reverse Confetti - Snow Bunnies

Hello!    I hope you have a wonderful weekend and ready to start the countdown to Christmas!   We had my side of the families Christmas this weekend and it was so much fun to get together with family!   I just got back into town and getting ready to travel again for work.  So I spent my afternoon unpacking and packing again.   

I had just a little time today to create this card for this week's Freshly Made Sketches!    I think I was starting to channel the next card holiday with my color choices!   I used Reverse Confetti's Snow Bunnies for this card.   I love the cute images in this set.    

I stamped my images onto Premier Polar White cardstock and colored with my Copic markers.   To create my little scene I used Rose cardstock and die cut it with the Snowballs Cover Panel.   I die cut another piece of white cardstock with the Scalloped Bag & Tags Creator Confetti Cuts and All Framed Up.   I then layered with the Rose cardstock and placed it onto some Piggy Bank cardstock. 

I die cut a heart from Iced Aqua cardstock with the Stamped Note Confetti Cuts and followed along with the sketch for my card design.    The heart was perfect for the sentiment from the stamp set!   Here is a link to the Freshly Made Sketch #367. 

Thank you for stopping by!   Happy Holidays to all!

Reverse Confetti - December Blog Hop

Welcome to the December Blog Hop for Reverse Confetti! Today we are sharing a new project and three of our favorites from this past year!    It was so much fun looking back thru the year and trying to pick out three cards to share.   There was so much fun and fantastic products that were released this past year and I can't wait to share my picks with you.    

First up, I had to create a Christmas card for the December Blog Hop!   I love this time of year!     These little elves remind me of the Elf on the Shelf and seeing all the mischief that they can get into.  I made two cards using the Christmas Cheer and Sentimental Christmas stamp set.   I used the same color combination on both cards and mixed up the Confetti Cuts that I used on each. 

For the first card, I ink blended with Lime Green and Avocado inks onto some Bristol smooth card stock.   I then layered the Large Diamond Cover Panel over the inked panel.   I die cut some Salsa ink with the Snowflake Trio Confetti Cuts.   

I loved the Sentimental Christmas stamp set and stamped the Fa La La and extended it by masking and stamping the La La again.   I stamped my images from Christmas Cheer on Premier Polar White card stock and colored with my Copic markers.  I added some clear glitter to the pom pom's on the hats. 

For the mini card, I used a card base that is 4 1/4 squared.   I used the Scalloped Squares Confetti Cuts along with the Criss Cross Cover Panel.   The sentiment is again from Sentimental Christmas and stamped onto Lime Green cardstock.  

I added a tree from the Holiday Gnomes stamp set using the paper from the Fun Times paper pad.  
I love the traditional colors of green and red for Christmas.   My favorite color combination with Reverse Confetti is Salsa and Lime Green.   

Now, onto my projects from this past year.   First up, this is a card that I made with the Tall Blooms stamp set.   I absolutely love this set and the beauty is that you can create so many different arrangements with the tall blooms.    I loved the Stitched Rays Cover panel on the Kraft card stock.    I had inked the edges of the card stock to give it a more vintage vibe.   This cover panel was perfect for the bundle of Tall Blooms.    Here is the original post for all the details. 

Next up, Moon Men!   No doubt,  this is one of my FAVorite stamps sets of this year!    I have boys and this stamp set is perfect for creating boy themed cards.    And..... who doesn't love making galaxy backgrounds!   The Reverse Confetti inks are so wonderful and vibrant!   They really make the best backgrounds and are so easy to blend.    For this card, I used Blueberry, Lagoon and Bumblebee inks to make my background.   I also used the Stitched Squares Confetti Cuts to make my card panel.  Here is the original post for all the details on the card below.  

For my final card, it's a card using the Fall Foliage stamp set and the new Triangles Cover Panel.   I loved this color combination with the blues and oranges.    The Triangles Cover Panel is such a gorgeous base for the fall leaves.    I love the mix of stitched and die cut triangles.   The sentiments in the Fall Foliage stamp set are a beautiful script.  Here is the original post to see more details and pictures on this card. 

Check out what all the designers have to share with you today!   The full blog hop list is posted below!    Enjoy!

Happy Holidays to all!

Reverse Confetti - Mod Floral Stack

Happy Sunday!   I hope you had an amazing weekend!   I was super busy this weekend and managed to sneak in a little crafty time this afternoon and I was super excited that I would get to play along with this week's Color Throwdown Challenge #521.     This week's challenge was to use silver, black, grey and white.   I loved the inspiration photo too!   So I decided to go with a silver Christmas tree with the Mod Floral Stack stamp set.    

This is such a versatile stamp set and you can make so many designs out of it.   Lisa Henke on the Reverse Confetti design team made this card during the Countdown Release month's ago and I thought it was so clever to make a Christmas tree with it and inspired to make my own.   

I stamped and embossed the floral images with silver embossing powder onto Stone card stock.   I trimmed it down with the Edge Essentials (one of my FAV Confetti Cuts) and then lined the panel with some silver sparkle card stock.  I die cut a star from Christmas Bear Confetti Cuts from the silver sparkle card stock to place on the top of my tree.    I stamped and white embossed my sentiment from Christmas Candles onto some Midnight card stock and added to my panel.

I am off now to get some wrapping done!    

Thank you so much for stopping by!
