You're So Tweet...

Hello! My husband and daughter are off visiting an amusement park today, so I'm taking full advantage of my alone time and having a crafting day! :)

To create my card, I started by first die cutting some circles using the Detailed Circles Confetti Cuts and the Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts on aqua, yellow and coral cardstock.  I then arranged the circles on a light gray woodgrain card base, adhering them with foam tape when I was happy with their placement.  I then stamped one of the toucans and a couple of the flowers from Toucan of Friendship in Versafine black ink, then heat settting them with clear powder.



I then colored the images using Zig Clean Color markers, and once they were dry they were die cut using the Toucan of Friendship Confetti Cuts.  The die cuts were then adhered to the card front using foam tape.  To finish up, I stamped the sentiment in black ink onto lime cardstock, trimmed it with a banner end, and adhered it to the card front with foam tape before embellishing with enamel dots.






Have a great one!

Feeling Blue? I'm Here for You...


Hello! We're in the final countdown before the next school year starts, and things are in full swing here.  So much to do, so little time. :) I'm popping in to share a card I created using some of the newest release goodies from Reverse Confetti, All Framed Up and Forever in Our Hearts.

To create my card, I started by first cutting a piece of light gray striped patterned paper a little smaller than 4" x 5.25".  Next, I ran two pieces of navy and light blue cardstock though my die cut machine using the All Framed Up Confetti Cuts.  The die cut pieces were then adhered on an angle to the patterned paper, and the overhanging bits were trimmed off before adhering the panel to a white card base.



Next, I die cut a piece of light gray cardstock using the Stitched Flag Trio Confetti Cuts, then stamped it with one of the sentiments from Forever in Our Hearts.  To finish up, the flag was adhered to the card front with foam tape, and I embellished with clear gems.





Have a great one! ♥

RC Blog Hop - A Cheerful Hello


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.  YAY! :)

To create my card, I started by first stamping a bunch of the images from Toucan of Friendship in Versafine ink, then heat embossing them with clear embossing powder.  Once they were all embossed, I then ran them through my big shot using the Toucan of Friendship Confetti Cuts.  Next, I colored all the images using Zig Clean Color watercolor markers and Ranger Distress Ink markers.  My Toucan looks a little crazy, but I modeled it after a Keel-billed Toucan, they are *gorgeous*! :)





While the images were drying, I stamped a light gray card base with the largest stripe from So Stripey in Versamark.  Once the images were dry, I arranged the shapes into a wreath shape, then adhered them to the card front with foam tape.  The sentiment was stamped in black ink onto aqua cardstock, then inserted into the wreath.  To finish up, I embellished with aqua rhinestones and gray enamel dots.






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! 

Here's the full list of today's hop participants:


Have a great one!

RC Sneak Peek Day 2 - Spread the Love


Hello! It's the second day of Reverse Confetti previews, and today we're showcasing cards/projects made with the new In a Jam and Forever in Our Hearts stamp sets.  I love how old and new elements from RC mix effortlessly to create CAS cards that pack a punch! :)

For my first card, I started by first die cutting a piece of black cardstock with the Big Stripes Cover Panel Confetti Cuts, then adhering the die cut to a white card base.  I then used the Jam Jar Confetti Cuts on yellow and white CS to create the little jam jar (isn't it adorable?!), and adhered the die cuts to the card front using foam tape.  I then stamped one of the sentiments from In a Jam in black ink onto white paper, heat embossed it with clear embossing powder, then cut it out using the coordinating dies.  The jar label sentiment was then adhered to the card front with foam tape, and yellow enamel dots were added for interest.


For my second card, I started by first cutting a piece of light gray striped patterned paper, and adhering it to a white card base.  Next, I used the Circle Band Confetti Cuts on a piece of light gray cardstock, then stamped it with one of the sentiments from Forever in our Hearts.  The sentiment was then heat embossed with white powder before adhering the layer to the card base.  To finish up, I embellished with aqua enamel dots.  Sympathy cards are one of the hardest cards to make, but I love this sweet sentiment!
