Reverse Confetti Forever and Always

Hello and welcome back! The latest Stock Your Stash Challenge is happening over on the Reverse Confetti blog, and this month’s theme is Wedding. I hope you’ll join in on the fun! Let’s get right in to the details of my wedding card!

I began my project by stamping a floral and several leaves from the Reverse Confetti Peony Stamp set on Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using VersaFine Onyx Black ink. Once stamped, I heat set them using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. Then I added color using Copic markers RV00, RV10, RV11, RV32, R85, G20, G21 and G24.

When I had finished the coloring, I used the coordinating Peony Confetti Cuts to trim those out. I also used the Reverse Confetti Stitched Circles Cover Panel to to cut a panel from Neenah 110lb, because the background needed some interest.

I stamped the sentiment, which is from the Reverse Confetti Word Up stamp set, on black cardstock using VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it using SSS Detail White Embossing Powder. I had to play around with the placement of the flower, leaves and sentiment before I could adhere anything.

I added foam tape to the back of the floral and tucked the leaves behind it, securing those with glue. I added the remaining leaves to the panel using foam tape, along with the sentiment. Everything was then adhered to the card base, which is Neenah 110lb. I had to add embellishments, right?! No card is complete without embellishments! I opted for some pearls from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards.

That finishes up this card! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope you’ll head over to the Reverse Confetti blog to participate in this month’s challenge. Don’t forget to stay awesome friend!

Reverse Confetti Countdown to Confetti Day Three

Hello Crafters and welcome back to day three of the Reverse Confetti Countdown to Confetti! The release will be going live tomorrow, woohoooo! Please note that new product links will not be active until then. To celebrate the countdown, we are having a blog hop, with a gift certificate up for grabs! Details below! For today’s projects, we are featuring the Oceans of Love and Hummingbirds sets! So, let’s jump right in to the projects!

For my first project, Oceans of Love, I began by grabbing the new Circle of Waves Confetti Cuts and cutting five different colors of blue cardstocks. Most of the blue cardstock is from Concord and 9th, and one is from Simon Says Stamp. I traced the circular die and fussy cut a solid circle and glued the “waves” to that.

I used the Oceans of Love set to stamp some of the elements using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink on Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock, and heat embossed them using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. Before cutting those out using the coordinating die, I used Copic Markers BG70, BG72 and BG75 to color the images. I took the “waves” circle and stamped the sentiment on it using VersaMark Ink and heat embossed that using SSS Detail White Embossing Powder.

I cut a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb using the Reverse Confetti Stitched Circles Cover Panel Confetti Cuts and poked out all of the larger circles and a few of the smaller circles. I used a scrap of the blue cardstock to run that through using that same cover panel, because I wanted these to be the “bubbles” on the card. I adhered the Stitched Circles panel to my card base, which is also Neenah 110lb using liquid glue.

Then, I inlaid some of the blue “bubbles” for interest. I adhered the circular waves panel using foam tape and adhered the colored underwater elements using glue, adding some of the “bubbles” atop that as well. That finishes up this project!

For my second project, I’m featuring the Hummingbird set along with the new Circle Element! To begin this project, I stamped the Hummingbird set using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink on Neenah 110lb and heat embossed those using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. I colored the images using Copic Markers Y08, Y11, Y13, Y15, RV10, RV11, RV13, RV32, RV34, RV66, YG11, YG13, N4, N6, G00, G20, BG70 and BG72.

Once those were all colored, I used the coordinating die to cut them out. I used the Circle Element Cover Panel to cut a piece of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb, and I used another panel to cut a frame using the Stitched Note and Frames Confetti Cuts. I used PinkFresh Studio Sunshine ink to do some light ink blending on the panel and the frame.

I stamped the sentiment from the Hummingbird set using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and heat embossed it using the same clear embossing powder. I trimmed that down and placed it behind the frame, and then added foam tape to the frame for dimension. I then adhered the frame to the Circle Element panel. I wanted a little added interest behind that Circle Element panel, so I cut piece of Concord and 9th Sea Glass cardstock and adhered that behind.

I then began adhering the Hummingbird elements to my framed panel using a combination of glue and foam tape. My panel was then adhered to my card base, which is also Neenah 110lb. To finish up this project, I added some PinkFresh Studio Jewels, because every project needs some bling in my opinion!

That does it for day three of the Countdown! I hope you enjoyed these projects, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Please note that the new product links will not be active until the release day and time.

Simon Says Stamp Love You Leaf Bundle

Hello friends and welcome back! Thanks for stopping by! I’m loving the new Rainbows release from Simon Says Stamp! Today’s project is featuring the Leaf Bundle Embossing Folder. Embossing folders are such an under used product, in my opinion, so I’m glad to see so many companies releasing awesome folders lately. Let’s get into today’s project.

I began my project by cutting a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock and placing it inside the folder to run through my die cutting machine. I then used PinkFresh Studio Mint and Ocean Breeze inks to do some ink blending over the embossed panel. I used a corner rounder on the panel for something a little different and to add interest.

I cut the SSS Love You shadow portion of the die three times from Neenah 110lb and cut the sentiment once from gold cardstock and adhered all of those together using Craft Tacky Glue. This was then glued directly atop the embossed panel. I wrapped some twine around the panel for added interest, and also attached a piece of Tim Holtz Idea-ology in the center of the “O.”

I adhered 3M Foam Tape on the back of the panel around the twine, and attached that to my card base, which is Neenah 110lb.

That finishes this project. I appreciate you stopping by today! How often do you use embossing folders? What are your favorite ones? I would love to know in the comments. Don’t forget to check out the entire Rainbows release for some awesome new products!

And, don’t forget to stay awesome!

Simon Says Stamp Love and Hugs

Hey! Hey! Hey! How’s it going? Have you checked out the new Rainbows release from Simon Says Stamp? I’m showcasing the new Fading Hearts Stencil on today’s project, so let’s jump right in!

To begin this project, I stamped the SSS Friendship Text Background on a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it using SSS Detail White Embossing Powder. I then affixed the Fading Hearts Stencil to the panel using masking tape, and ink blended the hearts using Distress Oxide Salvaged Patina and Picked Raspberry inks.

I die cut the SSS Outline Clustered Leaves and the PinkFresh Studio Stitched Scallop Rectangles once from Neenah 110lb. I adhered just the stem of the leaves to the heart panel using Craft Tacky Glue, because I wanted some movement of the leaves themselves, and I adhered the frame to the panel using 3M Foam Tape for dimension.

I adhered this SSS sentiment strip to the panel using foam tape as well, tucking the edges slightly under the frame. Once everything was adhered, I added some Studio Katia Arctic Breeze Pearls for that much needed bling. Everything has to have bling, right?! My panel was then adhered to my card base, which is also Neenah 110lb.

That does it for this project! I hope it inspires you to get crafty in your space! Don’t forget to check out the new Rainbows release, and let me know your favorites in the comments!

Stay awesome crafty peeps!

Alex Syberia Design Love You Daffodils

Hello there Crafty Friends! I hope you’re doing well, and I thank you for stopping by today! I’m featuring the new Alex Syberia Design Daffodils A2 Card Panel for this post. Alex has a new release, and you should definitely check out her Etsy shop for all the digi stamps and loads of inspirations!

To begin my project, I printed the Daffodils on a sheet of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock and began coloring the image using Copic Markers Y06, Y08, Y11, Y13, Y15, YR27, YG13, YG17, YG91, E71 and B0000. I continued to add shading and more details, such as the leaf veining using my PrismaColor pencils.

I didn’t want to lose too much of the image, so I trimmed my panel down to 3.75″ x 5.75″ and mounted it onto a panel of black cardstock that’s just slightly larger using 3M Foam Tape. I die cut the Lawn Fawn I Love You Border sentiment once from gold cardstock and twice from the same black cardstock and adhered those together using Craft Tacky Glue. This sentiment actually says I Love You, but I trimmed it down, because I only wanted the love you portion.

I die cut the Altenew Hanging Garden die twice from gold cardstock and prepared my card base by splattering it with Royal Talens Amsterdam Oxide Black Acrylic Ink. I love this ink because it’s such a perfect consistency for splatter! I positioned my panel over the card base to determine the placement of the gold leaves, and adhered those using glue. I then glued my panel atop the leaves to finish up my card.

This was a super fun card panel to color! Don’t forget to stop by Alex’s Etsy shop to check out all of the new images!

Stay awesome friends!
