Reverse Confetti - Anything Goes


Hi all, today I'm back for my last post as a Fetti Friend for Reverse Confetti. I've had a blast playing with their products and want to thank them so much for having me over the past two months. So anyway, for my last card today I'll be using The Greatest Adventure Stamp Set along with the Cue The Confetti Paper Pad for a quick and easy background for my scene. 


To begin my card for today, I started off with stamping out the images from The Greatest Adventure, I coloured them with Copic Markers and cut them out using the coordinating dies. Next I used my trimmer and cut down two pieces of patterned paper from Cue The Confetti Paper Pad. I used some scissors on the green piece to make a hill and adhered them together using foam tape. 


Next I adhered my images over top of my panel and adhered the panel to a white card base. For my sentiment I white heat embossed the 'Hey There, Happy Camper' sentiment from the same set onto a thin strip of black card stock and adhered that to the left hand side of my card as well. 

That finished off my super simple card for today, I hope you enjoyed and you enjoyed all of my projects for Reverse Confetti over the past two months. Thank you again to Jen for having me! See you all next time.

Reverse Confetti - Stock Your Stash


Hi friends, today I'm back for Reverse Confetti as their Fetti Friend and for today, I have a card for their Stock Your Stash challenge. This month's theme is wedding, so I went for a super simple black and white theme using their July release.


To start off my card today, I stamped out one of the flower images from Elegant Florals in black ink onto white card stock. I then die cut it out and set it off to the side. While I was die cutting, I used the Striped Circle Cover Panel Dies and cut that from white card stock as well. I then cut that panel down into a square as well using my trimmer. Lastly, I cut a strip of black cardstock for my sentiment as well as a square to back my cover die panel also. 


I added foam tape to the back of the circle panel die and adhered it onto the black card stock piece. I then added more foam tape onto the flower and added that to the left hand side as well. Lastly, I white heat embossed the 'Happiest Wishes For You' sentiment from Mod Floral Stack onto the additional strip of black card stock and adhered that to the right hand side of my card. 

That finished up my super simple take on a wedding card today, thanks for stopping by and I'll be back soon.

Hello Bluebird - Two Fall Themed Cards

Hi friends, today I'm back for Hello Bluebird and for these projects I'm going to be using the brand new August release (which is amazing by the way) I'll be focusing on using the Fall Friends Stamp Set, Birch Trees Dies, Blowing Leaves Background Stamp as well as the Gallery Frame Three Dies.


To begin my first card, I started off with stamping out my images from Fall Friends onto some watercolour card stock. I then clear heat embossed over them and coloured them in with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I then die cut them out, and set them off to the side. While I was die  cutting, I used the Birch Tree Dies with some watercolour card stock, to match my images texture.


(Zigs Used: No. 50 Yellow, No. 37 Cornflour Blue, No. 24 Wine Red, No. 22 Carmine Red, No. 43 Olive Green, No. 61 Light Brown, No. 96 Mid Grey, No. 91 Light Grey, No. 83 Lilac, No. 69 Blush, No. 71 Beige, No. 302 Haze Blue)

For my background, I took another piece of watercolour card stock and stamped my Blowing Leaves Background Stamp on it with Versamark Ink. I then coated it with clear embossing powder and heat set it. I used various colours of Distress Inks and ink blended over the entire background. I then cut a separate piece and ink blended some green on top for the grass area. I then adhered both background pieces together along with the Birch Tree Dies. I then adhered my images into my scene as well. To finish up, I used a piece of black card stock and stamped the 'When Friends Gather, Memories Are Made' sentiment and I white heat embossed that onto the card stock. I popped it up on foam tape and adhered it to my card. For a last step, I adhered the entire panel onto a blue card base and that finished up card one.


For my second card, I used the same Fall Friends Stamp Set, stamped it down onto white card stock and then coloured my images in with Copic Markers. Once they were coloured, I die cut them using the coordinating dies. While I had my die cutting machine out I also cut out the grid die from the new Gallery Frame 3 Dies as well as some grassy hills from Grassy Knoll Dies.


(Copics Used: BV02, BV04, BV08 / E53, E55, E57 / R20 / 0 / W00, W2 / Y17, YR04, YR18, E37 / YG61, YG63, YG67 / YR21, YR24, YR27, E07)

I set all my die cuts off to the side and began ink blending. I used some blues and ink blended them onto a plain piece of watercolour card stock and ink blended some greens onto my grassy hill pieces. I adhered them together and then behind my grid piece with foam tape. I adhered my pumpkins onto the front panel and my fox onto the left of the panel. For my sentiment I used the 'A Friendly Hello' and white heat embossed that onto a thin black strip of card stock as well. To finish off I used some patterned paper from Sunny Studio Stamps as my background as it pulled all the fall colours together. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed and I'll see you all next time!

Hello Bluebird - Two Cards Using Letter Dies

Hi friends, today I'm here for Hello Bluebird and I have two cards using the Charlie Alpha Dies along with Bee Happy and Otter Friends. 


To begin my first card I started off with stamping out my images onto some white cardstock and coloured them in with Copic Markers. I then used the coordinating dies to cut them out and set them off to the side. For my sentiment, I wanted to make part of it custom, so I used the Charlie Alpha Die Set and cut out the letters from the same white cardstock. I added foam tape on the backs of each of the letters and also the bees. 

(Copic Markers Used: RV13, RV25, RV19 / YG21, YG13, YG17 / E53, E57 / W2, W5, W7 / Y11, Y15, Y35 / R17, R29, R89 / B0000, B000, 0)


Now all my elements were ready I could assemble my card. I pulled out a blue piece of cardstock and cut it down to 4" wide by 5 1/2" tall. I adhered flowers around the edges first flat. Then I adhered my grid sentiment next. I made it a little wonky since I felt like that fit with the card better. I then adhered my bees around the project as well. To finish it off I stamped the 'you're' sentiment on top of my grid and that finished up my first card. 


For my second card I went along the same lines. I stamped out my images from Otter Friends, coloured them with Copic Markers and cut them all out with their coordinating dies. I set them off to the side and worked on the rest of my die cutting. I cut the same Charlie Alpha Dies from white cardstock to spell the word 'otterly'. While I had my die cutting machine out I also cut a piece of vellum using the Grassy Knoll Dies for waves. 

(Copic Markers Used: V01, V15, V17 / Y11, Y15, Y38 / YG21, YG13, YG17 / E50, E53, E55, E57 / W1, 0 / R20)


Next I added foam tape onto the backs of all my images and adhered them into place on the vellum piece. I also added foam tape to the letters aside from the o and y. Then adhered them into place as well. I white heat embossed the rest of my sentiment onto thin black strips and adhered them onto my project as well. To finish off I used the same blue cardstock and adhered my vellum onto it. 

That finished up both cards for today, I hope you enjoyed and also, there's a new release coming soon to Hello Bluebird, so make sure you check out their Instagram feed for sneaks!

Reverse Confetti August Blog Hop


Hi friends, today I'm back for Reverse Confetti as apart of their blog hop. I'll be using the July Release to make a tag today.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The blog hop list is down below. 



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

For today's project, I made a simple tag using the Mod Floral Stack Stamp Set.


I started off by stamping out the three 'leaf' images with different colours of cardstock twice each. I then used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I then layered them altogether using foam tape. Next I cut down a piece of brown paper using my trimmer to 3" x 4" and also cut another piece of white cardstock to add behind as well. I adhered them bother together and cut angles from both sides of the top of the piece to create a tag. 


Next I adhered my layered 'leaf' images next to each other on top of the tag, arranged so it looks like a butterfly. I added yellow enamel dots in the centre to cover up the seams as well. For my sentiment I white heat embossed the 'With Love' sentiment onto a black strip of cardstock and adhered it onto my tag as well. To finish off I cut out a little heart from pink cardstock and added it to the left hand side of the sentiment and finished off the top of the tag with a punched hole and some twine. 

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed. The list of supplies used is down below and since I'm the last person on the hop, I hope you enjoyed seeing all the inspiration. See you next time!
