Riley & Co. Blog Hop - Be Mine


Hello! CardMaker Magazine has teamed up today with Riley & Co. for a fun blog hop showcasing their products. :) Hopefully you've reached my blog by way of Lisa McGushion's blog, but if you'd like to start at the beginning of the hop, click HERE.

To create my card, I started by first stamping the single heart image from the Valentine/St. Patty's Accessories stamp set in Versafine ink onto watercolor paper to create a heart pattern.  I then covered the hearts with clear embossing powder before heat setting them.  I then used Zig Clean Color watercolor markers to color in the hearts.



While the watercolored hearts were drying, I stamped Riley in Versafine ink, heat set the image with clear powder, then die cut the image with the coordinating Riley die.  Once the image was die cut, I colored it with Zig Clean Color watercolor markers and set it aside to dry.  Next, I stamped one of the sentiments from the Valentine/St. Patty's Accessories stamp set in black ink onto aqua cardstock, then colored the open letters with a white gel pen.  Once Riley was dry, I adhered the image to a white cardstock circle using foam tape, then attached the banner to Riley's body.  The heart background panel was then adhered to a yellow card base with foam tape.  To finish up, the white cardstock circle was attached to the card front, I trimmed off the excess hanging over the edge and then embellished with blue enamel dots.

Thanks for stopping by today, next up on the hop is Michelle Pearon's blog. (To see the full list of today's participants, please click HERE.)

Have a great one!

RC Blog Hop - Hugs & Kisses


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 by first adhering a piece of pink patterned paper from the True Love paper pad to a Cloud White card base.  I then die cut a piece of white cardstock using the All Hearts Cover Panel Confetti Cuts, and adhered it to the card base.  I then covered some of the negative die cut heart pieces with Stickles and set them aside to dry before adhering them into some of the open spots on the card front.


Next, I die cut the xoxo using the XOXO Hearts Confetti Cuts on Iced Aqua cardstock and attached it to the card base.  One of the sentiments from Crazy About You was then stamped in black ink onto a Stone cardstock banner.  To finish up, the banner was adhered to the card front with foam tape, and I embellished with aqua gems.






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!

RC Sneak Peek Day 3 - Let Your Light Shine


Hello! It's the final day of Reverse Confetti January sneak peeks, and today I'm sharing a card created using the new My Rock stamp set and Cross Confetti Cuts die.

To create my card, I started by first die cutting a piece of Cloud White cardstock using the Sunburst Cover Panel Confetti Cuts, then adhering it to a white card base which had been topped with a piece of yellow patterned paper.  I then ran a piece of scrap Stone cardstock through my Big Shot centered behind the circle in the Sunburst die, then adhered the die cut to the card front.  Next, I die cut white and aqua cardstock using the Cross Confetti Cuts, layered the pieces together, then adhered them to the card front with foam tape.  



Next, I stamped one of the sentiments from My Rock in black ink onto Stone cardstock.  To finish up, the sentiment strip was adhered to the bottom of the card front, and then I embellished the center of the cross with black rhinestones.

RC Sneak Peek Day 2 - You're the Coolest


Hello! It's the second day of Reverse Confetti January sneak peeks, and today I'm sharing a sweet little treat box created using the new Foodie Fun stamp set and the Goodie Box die.  

To create my project, I started by first die cutting a piece of Piggy Bank cardstock with the Goodie Box Confetti Cuts die, then folding the perforations and adhering the base together.  Next, I cut a strip of strip patterned paper from the True Love paper pad, then adhered it around the box.  To add a touch of fun, I then adhered glitter tape to the top and bottom of the patterned paper surrounding the box.




Next, I stamped the ice cream and cherry from Foodie Fun in Piggy Bank and Flamingo inks, then die cut them with the coordinating Foodie Fun Confetti Cuts.  I then die cut a small piece of the packing paper Jen uses to protect her mailers with the bottom of the ice cream cone to add a bit of texture.  Next, I used the Goodie Box Additions Confetti Cuts on Cloud White and green patterned True Love paper, and adhered the die cuts together.  The box was wrapped several times with teal twine, and secured with a double bow.  The ice cream cone was assembled, adhered to the goodie tag, then attached to the twine bow.

RC Sneak Peek Day 1 - Happy Birthday


Hello! It's the first day of Reverse Confetti January sneak peeks, and today I'm sharing a card created using the new Cured stamp set, and the Tall Stripe Confetti Cuts and Heart Banner Confetti Cuts dies.

To create my card, I started by first die cutting a piece of Cloud White CS using the Tall Stripe Confetti Cuts die and layering it on top of a piece of pink patterned paper from the True Love paper pad.  I then adhered the panel to a Stone card base before adding a strip of Lime Green CS.  Next, I stamped one of the cutie patootie piggies from Cured in Versafine black ink and heat set the image with clear embossing powder before coloring it with Zig Clean Color markers.  I did the same with the patch of grass stamp, only I'm using it as a crown for my princess piggy. :)



Once the images were dry, I die cut them with the coordinating Cured Confetti Cuts.  One of the sentiments from Cured was then stamped in black ink onto a strip of Lime Green CS.  The sentiment strip and piggy were then adhered to the card front with foam tape.  Next, I used the Heart Banners Confetti Cuts on Piggy Bank, Lime Green and Stone cardstocks and assembled the pieces together.  The die cuts were then strung together with Charcoal Twine and adhered to the card front with foam tape.  To finish up, I embellished with light green pearls.

January SFYTT - Hey Friend, I Miss Your Face!


Happy New Year! It's the first of the month, which means it's time for a new Reverse Confetti sketch challenge! :) 

To create my card, I started with a Stone card base, and added a strip of black polka dot paper from the Fright Night paper pad.  I then used the Lacy Scallop Frame Confetti Cuts on a piece of coral CS, and adhered it to the card front with foam tape.  Next, I stamped the uber cute penguin, hat and heart from S'more Love in Versamark ink before heat setting them with clear embossing powder.  The images were then colored with Zig Clean Color markers and set aside to dry.  



Once the images were dry, they were die cut using the S'more Love Confetti Cuts.  The penguin's hat was adhered to the penguin with a little bit of liquid glue, then the penguin was adhered to a die cut circle cut from the Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts.  The die cut circle and hearts were then adhered to the card front.  To finish up, I die cut a banner using the Tag Me Confetti Cuts die, stamped it with one of the the sentiments from A Friend Like You in black ink, and attached it to the card front with foam tape.

You Always Know How to Make Me Smile


Hello! Feels like forever since I last posted here, but I wanted to pop in and share a card I created for a previous Reverse Confetti release that I hadn't had a chance to share yet.  

To create my card, I started with a Stone card base, then topped it with a piece of patterned paper from the Warm Heart paper pad.  I then stamped the thanks text box from Whole Lotta Thanks in black ink, then die cut it with the coordinating Whole Lotta Thanks Confetti Cuts.  The remainder of the sentiment was then stamped in Iced Aqua ink.



I then stamped several flower and leaf outline and solid images from Whole Lotta Thanks in Iced Aqua, Stone and black inks, then die cut them with the coordinating Whole Lotta Thanks Confetti Cuts.  The focal sentiment was attached to the card base using foam tape, then the flowers and leaves were layered behind the sentiment.





Have a great one!
