Reverse Confetti June Blog Hop


Hello there!  It's the 8th of the month, and that means it's time for the Reverse Confetti June blog hop!  This month, we have a Summer Fun theme!  I don't know about you, but when I think of summer, I think immediately about the 4th of July.  I pulled out some of my favorite products and created a fun star spangled card!

To create my card, I started off with an A2 card base cut from Premier Polar White cardstock.  On top of that, I layered a Big Stripes Cover Panel cut from Salsa cardstock.  For my next layer, I cut the Polka Panel from Navy cardstock and backed that with white before adding it to my card front.  For my focal point, I pulled out my Fa La La Circle Confetti Cuts dies and diecut the pinked edge circle from some Warm Heart patterned paper.  I diecut the smaller circle from that die set from white cardstock.  In the center of the white circle, I stamped a sentiment from the Because of the Brave stamp set in Navy ink.  For some added detail and another pop of red, I bordered each side of the sentiment with the herringbone pattern from the Pattern Blocks stamp set, stamped in Salsa ink.


Stars & Stripes Forever

And it's not 4th of July without a little sparkle!  I added a trio of stars by diecutting the two sizes of scribble stars from the Seeing Stars Confetti Cuts die set out of gold glitter paper and then added a scattering of metallic gold sequins to finish off my card.

Reverse Confetti June Stock Your Stash Challenge


Hello there!  Today starts a new month, and that means a new SYS Challenge at Reverse Confetti!  This month's theme is Hello/Just Because :)

To create my card, I started off with a 4.25" square card base.  I ink blended a blue ombre background which fades up into white.  To the bottom of that panel I added a strip of patterned paper from the Cheerful & Kind paper pad.  On top of that, I added a Blocked Out Square Confetti Cuts Panel, cut from Premier Polar White cardstock.  I stamped and colored the piggy pair from the Cured stamp set and diecut them and their little fence with the coordinating Cured Confetti Cuts dies.  On top of one of the piggies, I perched a tiny bird from the All About Ewe stamp set.

Oh Hello There

For my sentiment, I stamped one of the talk bubbles from the Figure of Speech stamp set in Midnight ink onto Premier Polar White cardstock and diecut it with the coordinating Figure of Speech Confetti Cuts dies.

Oh Hello There

I hope you will play along with us and Stock You Stash! :)

Thanks for stopping by!! :)

CASE this Sketch #273 {Reverse Confetti}


Hello there!  Today, I have a clean and simple card to share with you using Reverse Confetti goodies for the current CASE this Sketch Challenge:

CASE this Sketch Challenge #273



To create my card, I started off with a piece of Premier Polar White cardstock cut to an A2 card base. I added a tiny piece of patterned paper from the Under the Umbrella paper pad to the right edge of the card base. Then, I cut a second piece of white cardstock to 4" x 5.25". I added a pinked edge to that panel using the Edge Essentials Confetti Cuts dies.  On the bottom of that panel I used the chevron image from the My Tribe stamp set to stamp a pattern along the edge.  I stamped the image several times in Lime Green, Baby Blue, Navy Blue and Olive inks.  Just above the patterned edge, I stamped a Happy Father's Day sentiment from the Whole Lotta Happy stamp set in Navy Blue ink.

Happy Father's Day

I added a few tiny wooden stars to the right edge side of the sentiment, and popped the panel up  on the card base, leaving just a tiny bit of the patterned paper peeking out for a pop of color. I really love CAS style when creating masculine cards.  Simple but bold and graphic really works well for the guys :)

Happy Father's Day

That's all for me today!  Thanks so much for stopping by! :)

Hello there!  Today, I have a card to share with you for the current Fusion Card Challenge - Coral Flowers - and I am using Reverse Confetti goodies!



To create my card, I started off with an A2 card base cut from Premier Polar White cardstock.  On top of that I added a Big Stripes Cover Panel Confetti Cuts cut from Piggy Bank cardstock.  The fill the center of the cover panel, I used the Flowers for Mom Confetti Cuts die set.  I cut the pinked edge circle from that set out of Piggy Bank cardstock, and the dotted circle from that set to cut a patterend circle from Paper Bliss papers.  I stamped to floral cluster images from the Banner in Bloom stamp set, and colored them with Copic markers to coordinate with the colors in the inspiration photo.  Then, I diecut them with the coordinating Banner in Bloom Confetti Cuts dies.

Happy Birthday

In the center of the circle, I added a sentiment from the Sentiment Essentials stamp set, stamped in Midnight ink onto Premier Polar White cardstock, and diecut with the Sentiment Essentials Confetti Cuts dies.  Then I popped everything up with foam tape, and added a scattering of clear sequins to finish off my card.
