Reverse Confetti & Hero Arts Collaboration

Hello there!  I have a special post to share with you today!  Reverse Confetti has partnered with Hero Arts to create The Better Together collaboration stamp and the coordinating Better Together die set!  There is a special hop and giveaway!  Before I share my project, here is a bit more about these awesome products! 

Hero Arts is celebrating 45 years and counting. To honor our beloved industry, we have teamed up with some of our favorite friends, and have together released co-branded designs focused on friendship, giving, and community.

Born with creativity in her blood, Ellie, daughter of Reverse Confetti owner, Jen del Muro, designed this uplifting and versatile multi-step floral set for the Hero Arts Partner collaboration. Both have a passion for equality and equity, and proceeds from this stamp set will be donated to the Human Rights Campaign. We hope that this stamp set will inspire you to create beautiful cards for those that you care for and love.

To create my card, I started off by watercoloring a background for these fun goemetric florals.  I stamped the flower base in Baby Blue ink, and stamped a pattern layer in Blue Lagoon ink.  The flower scallops were stamped in Iced Aqua ink and the flower centers were stamped in Navy ink.  I used my Pablo colored pencils over the ink to add depth and dimenson.  I did the same for the flower stems and leaves, stamping them in Lime Green ink, then highlighting with the pencils.

I arranged them, popped everything up with foam tape, and stamped a sentiment from the set in Navy ink.  The panel was popped up on a white card base, and I added a strip of patterned paper to the left edge for more interest.  To finish off the card, I added some white gel pen accents and a scattering of clear sequins.

Reverse Confetti February Creative Hop


Hello there!  It's the 8th of the month, and that means it's time for the Reverse Confetti Creative Hop!  For my project this month, I made a set of gift tags using one of my favorite Reverse Confetti stamp sets, Stained Glass Butterflies.  

To create my tags, I started out by stamped and coloring the largest butterfly from the set, three times.  I laid down a base a Copic markers and then added depth and more color with Pablo colored pencils.  These butteflies are so fun to color, and you can really amp up the color when you combine markers and pencils.  I dieut them with the coordinating Stained Glass Butterflies Confetti Cuts and then moved on to the tag bases.

To create the tag bases, I diecut the Stitched Hex Tag Confetti Cuts from white cardstock.  I stamped the polka dot stripe from the Background Builder stamp set in black ink, then used my watercolor palette to add additional paint splatters in colors that coordinate with each of the butterflies.

I used Distress Oxides in shades to match the butterflies and added a soft fade of ink around the edges of each tag.  Then I added an additional layer with the row of hearts from the Hearts Confetti Cuts die set.  I popped each butterfly up with foam tape, and stamped a sentiment for each using the Bitty Banners stamp set, which I diecut with the coordinating Confetti Cuts and popped them up as well.

To finish things off, I added some white gel pen accents and some black and white twine to each.
