Reverse Confetti - Mahalo

Happy Sunday!   We are in graduation mode and it leaves little time for crafting for me.   I made this quick card using the new Diamond Stripe Square Confetti Cuts along with Pattern Blocks and Mahalo stamp sets.  

I realized over the past few weeks, I am completely out of thank you cards and need to make a few for the next few weeks.     I used a color combo from this Color Challenge - CAS Color & Sketches and I am loving this combo!    I used Reverse Confetti Lagoon, Parakeet and Bumblebee Inks.   

The Pattern Block chevron was stamped in Parakeet ink onto the square die cut.   I layered up the Mahalo images and sentiment with lot's of foam tape on the top.     I added some white glitter to my coconut rim.    

This makes for a super quick and easy card once I had the color combo set.   That is it for me today!   I hope you have an awesome week!   I will be trying to squeeze in some stamping time this week!   


I joined into several challenges with this card - see the links below if you would like to play along!

Reverse Confetti - Moon Men

Happy Mother's Day!   I hope you have enjoyed your day!    I was able to sneak some craft time in this weekend and made a birthday card with the new Moon Men from Reverse Confetti.   I played along with Freshly Made Sketches for this card.  

I started out ink blending with Bumblebee, Magenta and Wine inks onto Bristol Smooth cardstock.   I splattered the panel with Copic White for my stars.   I then trimmed the panel down with Kindness Cards Confetti Cuts and trimmed another piece of yellow cardstock.    I stamped my images onto Premier Polar White cardstock and colored with Chameleon colored pencils.    I die cut them out with the Moon Men Confetti Cuts.   I added a present from Christmas Bear and the balloons from Monkey Business.  

I first placed the panel on a white card base but I felt like it was too flat, so I decided to stamp the white card base with Elemental Stripes in Stone ink.   It is very subtle but added just the right touch.   I left the bottom clear and stamped a sentiment from Hey Sugar with black ink and stamped over with Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder.    

For a final touch, I added some clear sequins.    Here is the link to Freshly Made  Sketches if you would like to play along, the challenge closes on Monday.   

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Mother's Day to all the special mom's out there!

Reverse Confetti - New Release Blog Hop!!!!

It's time to shop!!!!!   The release is now available to purchase at Reverse Confetti.  Today is the New Release Blog Hop where we show you more projects made with the new release products.    I pulled out all the stops for my first card!  There is ton's of stamping and embossing on my card!  I used the new Pattern Blocks and created my own background.   

This stamps remind me of my grandmother's hand made scrap quilts.  She would use up scraps of material and cut them into blocks and piece them together in tons of random patterns and colors.   So that was my inspiration for the card.    I stamped the Pattern Block using both stamps and creating a block pattern.  I heat embossed it directly onto my Stormy card base.    I die cut the new Stitched Squares using the two largest to make a frame out of RC Aqua cardstock.   

I stamped my sentiment onto Premier Polar White cardstock and heat embossed it as well.   I used a double layer of foam tape and then added a variety of sequins.    To add an accent to my panel, I used the Boho Vibes stamp set and embossed with Liquid Plaitnum embossing powder onto Lead card stock and then die cut it out with the Boho Vibes Confetti Cuts.    I added a natural twine hemp bow to complete the design.     

It is Reverse Confetti's 5th birthday, so I had to create another birthday card using this new release. 
The Candle Confetti and the new Birthday Sentiment stamp set are a staple that you will reach for time and time again for those special days.   After cutting the Candle Confetti Cut out,  I decided to back the white panel with the new Paper Bliss pattern paper to make multi colored candles.   

 I stamped the birthday sentiment with Abyss ink onto Piggy Bank cardstock.  I layered up some more pattern paper from the Paper Bliss paper pad to the card base and finished it off with some aqua twine.    I added a few sprinkles of some sequins.   

This is my final card to share with you today, but it is a quick and easy one to make.   I love to make really detailed cards but I also like to make quick and easy cards too.    My mom meets up with a group of ladies on occasion and she will be hosting them soon and asked if I would come and help them make cards.   So I wanted to a make a quick and easy card that people who have never stamped could easily make.   

 I started with a 4 1/4 square card base of white card stock.   I used the new Diamond Stripe Square Confetti Cut and die cut Iced Aqua and Bumblebee cardstock to do a pattern inlay.    I laid my main die cut panel on the card base and used my MISTI to stamp the floral design in Iced Aqua ink using the Pattern Block stamp set.    Then I stamped a sentiment from the same set in Versafine Onyx Black ink.   I love the fine line of this sentiment font!   I then added my die cuts with adhesive and started filling in the pattern with the Bumblebee cardstock.   For a final touch, I added some sequins.  

That is it for me! For more inspiration, please hop along to each of the blog hop posts listed below!  I can't wait to hop along myself to see all the wonderful creations!    Don't forget to shop for you new release items!!!
