December SFYTT - Good Cheer Headed Your Way


Happy December 1st! :) It's the start of a new month, which means it's also time for a new Reverse Confetti sketch challenge.  

To create my card, I started by first adhering a piece of gray tree patterned paper from the Very Merry paper pad to a Cloud White base.  I then adhered a strip of striped patterned paper from the Warm Heart paper pad to the bottom of the card front.  Next, I stamped the bear and tree images from Bearing Gifts in Versafine ink onto watercolor paper, then heat set the image with clear embossing powder.  The images were die cut using the Bearing Gifts Confetti Cuts, then colored with Zig Clean Color markers.  



Once the images were dry, they were adhered to the card front using foam tape.  I then used the Tag Me Confetti Cuts on a piece of Iced Aqua CS, then stamped one of the sentiments from Bearing Gifts in black ink.  The sentiment strip was then adhered to the card front with foam tape.  To finish up, I embellished with blue enamel dots.

Happy Birthday


Happy Black Friday! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday... Winnie & Walter is having a Black Friday - Cyber Monday sale, and today we're showcasing the In Bloom: Julie's Roses set which is free with any purchase of $35 (while supplies last... for full details, please click HERE).

To create my card, I started with a white card base and created a striped pattern using the single tear drop row in the In Bloom: Julie's Roses set.  I then stamped the rose and leaves images in Versafine ink and heat set them with clear embossing powder before coloring with Zig Clean Color markers.  


Once the images were dry, I cut them out and adhered several of the leaves behind the rose after coloring them with a Winks of Stella glitter marker.  The sentiment was stamped in black ink onto a strip of light aqua cardstock, trimmed into a banner, then adhered to the card front with foam tape along with the flower and leaves.  To fnish up, I embellished with yellow enamel dots.

Have a great one!

25 Days of Tags w/Reverse Confetti - Merry Christmas



Hello! I'm so happy to be participating in Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags Day 23 event today using some of my favorite Reverse Confetti stamps/dies and a fun, albeit unusual, holiday color combo. :)

To create my tag, I started by first die cutting a piece of aqua CS using the Topped Off Tag Confetti Cuts, then topping it with a piece of white CS that had been die cut with the Dots Tag Layer Confetti Cuts.  I then die cut a piece of silver foil using the Wreath Confetti Cuts, and nestled a light coral die cut Swirlie inside.  



Next, I die cut the trees using the Branch Out Confetti Cuts on gray, aqua, coral, green and yellow CS, then assembled the pieces before adhering them to the card front.  The sentiment from Jolly Holiday was stamped in black ink onto a piece of light gray CS cut out using the Stitched Flag Trio Confetti Cuts. A yellow tag topper was cut using the Hang Ups Too Confetti Cuts, then it was adhered to the tag front before tying it off with a coral bow.  To finish up, the sentiment was adhered to the tag front using foam tape, then I embellished with green enamel dots.



As a little something extra, Reverse Confetti is having a Black Friday sale! Here are the deets:


Have a great one!

W&W Blog Hop - Tour of the Stars



Hello! Today the Winnie & Walter team is having a blog hop to showcase some of the amazing goodies available for purchase this month. :) Hopefully you've reached my blog by way of Heather's blog (if you'd like to start at the beginning of the hop, please click HERE).

To create my card, I started by first stamping one of the leaf images from Framed with Evelin T Designs in Versafine ink, then heat setting them with clear embossing powder.  I then colored them in using Zig Clean Color markers and set them aside to dry.  I then stamped the berries from In Bloom: Frenchy's Festive Florals with Angelica Suarez in Versafine ink, and heat set them as well in clear powder before coloring.  Once all the watercolored images were dry, I die cut them using the coordinating Cutaways.  



Next, I stamped the flower image from Frenchy's Florals in light peach ink, and die cut them using the coordinating Cutaways.  A large die cut circle was then cut, and the flower, leaf and berry pieces were laid out and adhered to the outer edge of the circle.  I used the In a Word: Shine Script Cutaways on silver foil and adhered it above a die cut created by using the In a Word: Bright Cutaway on coral CS.  I then adhered a strip of aqua CS near the bottom of a kraft woodgrain card base, and attached the wreath to the card front using foam tape.  To finish up, I embellished with clear gems.

Would you like to be entered for a chance to win one of FIVE $30 credits to the Winnie & Walter store? All you have to do is leave a comment along the way on the designer's blogs, and winners will be chosen at random from all comments left by Monday, November 21, 2016 at noon CST.

Crazy for Christmas - Decor & More



Hello! We're on the final day of Reverse Confetti's Crazy for Christmas event, and today's them is Decor & More.  I wasn't sure what I wanted to do create at first, so I did what any self-respecting crafter would do... I walked the aisles of my local craft store! ;) While browsing, I came across this adorable unpainted tree and I just loved the touch of whimsy the tilted branches added.  

To create my project, I started by first giving the tree a base coat of white.  I then went back and painted some of the other branches navy, pink and light teal.  Once the paint dried, I sprayed the tree with a protective gloss coat, then die cut all my pieces before assembling:


Pink CS, Cloud White CSNavy CS, Silver Foil CS, Light Teal CS


Once all the die cuts were adhered to the tree, I then went back and sprayed my project again with another two coats of protective gloss coat.  Hopefully it'll stand up to wear and tear inflicted by little hands. Lol... 

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed my project! For more holiday inspiration, be sure to hop on over and check out the rest of today's participants:


Have a great one!

Crazy For Christmas - Treat Tubes



Hello! We're all getting into the Christmas spirit over at Reverse Confetti, and over the next few days we'll be sharing lots of fun project ideas.  Today's projects all center around RC's fun treat tubes, and for my project I decided to make these little cuties! My daughter is obsessed with all things pink, and when I saw these two nail polish colors from Essie, I thought they would make great stocking stuffers.  Hey, it's never too soon to start shopping, am I right?? Lol :)

To create the tubes, I started with two Treat Tubes, and filled them with some tiny styrofoam beads.  I then gently placed the bottles into the tubes, nestling them into the beads.  Next, I used Treat Tube Topper Confetti Cuts on charteuse CS, then adhered the toppers to each tube.  


Reindeer Tag:

The Topped Off Tag Confetti Cuts was used on light pink CS, then adhered behind a white polka dot tag die cut from the Dots Tag Layer Confetti Cuts.  Several images from Blooms 'n Buds were stamped in black and pink inks, then die cut with the Blooms 'n Buds Confetti Cuts.  The Wheat Confetti Cuts was then used on chartreuse CS, then adhered behind the flower die cuts.  I then stamped the adorable deer from Jolly Holiday in versafine black ink, and heat set it with clear embossing powder before coloring it with zig clean color markers.  Once the image was dry, it was cut out with the Jolly Holiday Confetti Cuts, then adhered on top of the flowers.  A strip of chartreuse CS was adhered to the tag front, then the flowers and deer were attached using foam tape.  To finish up, I embellished with pink pearls, die cut a topper with one of the Hang Ups, Too Confetti Cuts dies and secured it to the treat tube with pink twine.


Snowflake Tag:

The Topped Off Tag Confetti Cuts was used on dark pink CS, then adhered behind a white striped tag die cut from the Big Stripes Layer Confetti Cuts.  I then die cut several elements using the Layered Snowflake Confetti Cuts on chartreuse, pink and white CS.  The snowflake pieces were adhered together, then attached to the tag front with foam tape. To finish up, I embellished with light and dark pink pearls, die cut a topper with one of the Hang Ups, Too Confetti Cuts dies and secured it to the treat tube with pink twine.

I also added a small loop of silver cord to the back of each treat tube, which will serve as a way to hang the little gifts from the Christmas tree. :)

RC Blog Hop - Smitten With You



Hello! It's the 8th of the month, which means it's Reverse Confetti blog hop time *AND* all the goodies we've been showcasing for the past few days are now available! :) 

To create my card, I started with a Cloud White card base, then topped it with one of the patterned paper sheets from the Warm Heart paper pad.  I then used the Large Eyelet Cover Panel Confetti Cuts on Iced Aqua CS, popped out all of the negative die pieces, and adhered it to the card front with foam tape. 


Next, I stamped two of the mittens from Smitten Mittens in Navy Blue ink, then cut them out with the coordinating Smitten Mittens Confetti Cuts.  The mittens cuffs were then stamped in Iced Aqua ink, die cut, then adhered on top of the navy mittens.  Gray striped twine and a single jingle bell were then attached to the back of the mittens.  To finish up, the mittens were adhered to the card front with foam tape, then the twine and jingle bell were secured with dabs of glue.





I hope you've enjoyed hopping with us today. Be sure and hop with us on the 8th of every month for more Reverse Confetti inspiration!
