Stamptember - Hello Pumpkin

Sunday, November 19, 2017

I finally got to ink up this stamp set that I got back in Simon Says Stamptember.    I loved this collaboration set from Neat and Tangled.   Fall is almost over and I had not inked it up!    I am joining in the challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Furry Friends.  

I stamped and colored my images with Copic Markers.   I think I stamped every image in the set and almost used every single one of them for the card :-)

I created a scene using some Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Fall paper and inked around the edges.   I die cut a frame using the My Favorite Things Single Stitched Line Oval frames using SU Early Espresso cardstock.    I then cut another oval frame from Primitive White card stock and some Kraft. I inked with Tumbled Glass on the Primitive white and inked the edges of the Kraft and stamped my sentiment.   

I then added my images flat to the card and added some clear Pico Embellisher to the pumpkin and apple.   

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!    

Reverse Confetti - Cool Friends

Saturday, November 18, 2017

Happy Saturday!   I hope that you have had a great day!   I played along with the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge this week.   The theme was to make a card around an outdoor winter activity, so who doesn't love to build snowmen!    I had this idea in my head to build a posse of snowman on this card and I think it turned out pretty darn cute!  

I used the Reverse Confetti Cool Friends stamp set and stamped and masked several images of the snowman till I filled the bottom part of the card full.   I used the Premier Polar White cardstock from Reverse Confetti.   I tell you it is becoming my favorite cardstock to use my Copics.   Not only do the Copics blend nicely on it but so does ink!    To make it easy to cut the masks, I layered several full sticky post it notes together and cut several out at a time.    This made the fussy cutting the masks so easy.    

Reverse Confetti is already having a Black Friday Sale with 25% off your entire order!  The new release is included in the sale!   Hop over there and get a jump start on your Black Friday deals!   

I then colored the images with Copic markers and added some details either with a Copic or a Sakura White Gel pen.   Some Clear Wink of Stella was added here and there and then I put Clear Pico Embellisher  on each of the snowman noses.  Once it was dry, I added a white highlight with the gel pen to the large snowman.   

I ink blended some Tumbled Glass Distress ink and then on the top part of the card I used Reverse Confetti Iced Aqua ink.    While the masks were on the snowman, I splattered with Copic Opaque white that had been watered down a little for my snow in the sky.     I then stamped a sentiment from the Sno Awesome stamp set and white embossed it.  I trimmed the panel down and then layered on some white card stock and then added it to a piece of Stone card base.    I added some red/white twine to finish the card off.

Reverse Confetti November SFYTT

Thursday, November 16, 2017

There is a new Sketch Challenge at Reverse Confetti!   This month there was a new release, so I decided to use the new paper pad, Cheerful & Kind to kick start my mojo and decided to pair it with the new Cool Friends stamp set.   I 💜for any kind of snowman so I adore this new stamp set.  

Below is the sketch for you to play along,  be sure to link up on the November SFYTT for a chance to win a prize!   

I trimmed down several of the patterned papers from Cheerful & Kind along with some Lime Green to match the sketch and just adhered them straight to a Stone card base.  I used the Fa La La circle Confetti Cut and die cut from some white card stock.  

I stamped the Cool Friends images onto Premier Polar White cardstock.   If you have not tried this cardstock yet with Copic markers, you need to give it a try!   They blend so nicely on this paper.   
I used the colors from the papers to color my snowman.  I die cut them using the Cool Friends Confetti Cuts and then set them off the circle with some foam tape.   I then decided to take my sentiment stamp and curve it to match the curve of the circle.   I added some sequins and used my clear sparkle with a brush pen to add final little details.  

I hope that you get a chance to play along with this month's sketch and be sure to link up for a chance to win a gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti Store!    All the details can be found on the SFYTT link on the Reverse Confetti Blog!  

Thank you for stopping by! 

Reverse Confetti Christmas Cheer

Sunday, November 12, 2017

Hey there!  Happy Sunday!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  I am playing along this week with the (PIN)spirational Challenge #203.   See the image below which you are to use to inspire you.   I decided to create a card with red as my primary color in my card.    I used new products from the Reverse Confetti November release that is now available! 

For my card base, I used partial die cutting to extend the Scalloped Squares and extended it to cover the entire panel.   Die cut the top half using your plate and only cover what you want to die cut.  Then  move your die down and line up with the middle scallops and cover the bottom half with your plate and run thru the machine again.  It is super easy and can be used in so many ways.   

I then took the negative panel and ran that thru with the Large Diamond Cover Panel.    I then layered the Scalloped Square and the Large Diamond panel over a A2 card base with foam tape.   I love the stitching details and the scalloped edge, this is one of my new favorite dies.  

Next I stamped my images from the Christmas Cheer stamp set onto Premier Polar White cardstock.   I just love to use my Copic Markers on this paper, the colors blend together so nicely.   It has become my new favorite.    I used only red markers to color my images and  added some sparkling glitter to the hats and the details on the outfits.   Here is a close up of all that sparkle!  I die cut the images with the Christmas Cheer Confetti Cuts. 

I then stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from the Christmas Cheer stamp set onto a strip of black card stock and placed it on the white panel with foam tape and placed my images on the panel with foam tap as well.   

 Thanks for stopping by today!    I hope that I have inspired you to create some Christmas Cheer of your own! 

I am entering this card into the following additional challenges: 

and the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Snow White  my card is mostly white! 

Reverse Confetti November Release Blog Hop

Wednesday, November 8, 2017

Welcome to the Reverse Confetti November Release Blog Hop!  I had so much fun using the new products from the release and I have several projects to share with you today.   You should have hopped to me from the very talented, Melissa Phillips!  

I made this cute square card using the new Scalloped Squares and the Large Diamond Cover Panel as the foundation of my card using Iced Aqua card stock and white cardstock.     

I stamped the images from the Cool Friends and Sweet Holiday Stamp sets onto Premier Polar White cardstock and colored with my Copic markers.    I then die cut with the Sweet Holiday and Cool Friends Confetti Cuts.    

On my next card, I did some partial die cutting with the Scalloped Squares Confetti Cuts and extended it to cover my A2 panel.   Place your cutting pads about halfway over the die and run thru your machine and then move the die down the cardstock and die cut the lower half and place the plates again about halfway over the die.   The plates should only cover what you want to cut instead of the whole die.   

I then ink blended with Lagoon and Iced Aqua inks onto the panel.   I added some snow with a white Sharpie.   I stamped a sentiment from Kitchen Love and white heat embossed it.   

I stamped several images from the Sweet Holiday and Cool Friends Stamp set on Premier Polar White cardstock and colored with my Copic markers.   I then die cut them with the Sweet Holiday and Cool Friends Confetti Cuts.   I added it to a kraft card base and wrapped some red and white twine around the top.   

My next card I created a scene with the cute little elves from the Christmas Cheer Stamp set.  I also used the tree from the Christmas Bear stamp set released in September.   I stamped them all on the Premier Polar white cardstock and colored with my Copic Markers and then die cut them with the matching Christmas Cheer and Christmas Bear Confetti Cuts.   

I ink blended Wisteria and Abyss inks onto the background and then used my white Sharpie to create the snowy background.    I added a snow bank with the Nuts about You Confetti Cuts using some white cardstock.   I added glitter around the edge for some additional sparkle.   

I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Cheer stamp set on the snow bank and then added my images to the card, some were popped up with foam tape to add dimension. 

For my last project today, I made a tag to use for homemade treats at Christmas using the Kitchen Love stamp set.   I stamped the images using Brick ink on white cardstock and then die cut the white cardstock and some Brick cardstock with the Scalloped Squares Confetti Cuts.   

I also used the small square die to cut a piece of Midnight cardstock and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Kitchen Love set.   I added a red gingham ribbon and some twine and wrapped it around my treat bag.  This tag was super quick to make and you could make several of these really quick during the holidays. 

I hope that you are as excited as I am about the new release.  I love it all!   The products are available now in the Reverse Confetti store for purchase!   Please continue along the hop to see what the other Confetti Crew members have to share with you.   Next up on the hop is the super sweet, Lisa Henke! 
The full hop list is below!
