Happy Heart Day

Hello there!  I'm sharing a Valentine card with you today that I made using the Reverse Confetti January SFYTT!






I started my card with some patterned paper from the TRUE LOVE 6X6 Paper Pad.  Next I die cut a piece of CLOUD WHITE Card Stock using HAPPY PRETTY PANELS Confetti Cuts.  I stamped the words "heart day" from WHOLE LOTTA HAPPY on black card stock and embossed in white. 




I used HEART BANNERS Confetti Cuts and ROSE Card Stock to die cut the cute heart banner.  I strung the hearts on some black twine and used some tiny clothespins to attach it to the "HAPPY" panel.  The two little hearts at the top of the card were taken from the centers of the heart banner.

If you haven't played along yet with our January SFYTT challenge there's still time!  The winner will receive a $20.00 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store and claim the title of 'Fetti Fave!

Thinking of You

Hello!  I'm playing along with Freshly Made Sketches today!  I always love their simple sketches, and love when I have the time to play along.




I was inspired by a card I saw on Dawn McVey's blog where she used a new stamp set that's being released this month by PTI.  I wanted to try the technique she used, and I thought that the leaves from PTI's Leave It Be would be a great substitution.  I'm also determined this year to USE the things I have instead of always feeling like I need to buy new things.  I'm sure you can all relate!





I colored the leaves from the Leave It Be stamp set using various shades of green and blue Zig Clean Color Real Brush watercolor markers (coloring directly onto the stamps), and then spritzed them with water and stamped on some Canson watercolor paper.  I die cut the leaves with the matching dies.  The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Artful Flowers.  This green and blue color combo with a bit of Kraft is one of my favorites!

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a wonderful day!

LOVE YOU

Hello there, friends!  I'm up on the Where Creativity Meets C9 blog today with a clean, masculine Valentine card idea!  I hope you'll hop over there and check out my card.  Here's a peek.

Enjoy!

Hello there, sweet friends!  It's time for a new challenge at Where Creativity Meets C9, and the theme this month is "Try Something New"!  The design team got to try out some brand spanking new Concord & 9th stamps and dies for this challenge, courtesy of the very generous Angie and Greg!








Today I'm using the new LOVE NOTES STAMP SET and LOVE NOTES ENVELOPE DIES!  I decided to make a gift card holder that will fit inside the envelope (the envelope is on the left in the picture below).





The new LOVE NOTES ENVELOPE DIES allow you to make an envelop with a finished size of 3" X 4 5/8".  You can then insert your "love note" inside (or gift card holder as I did).  Angie will have a detailed video on the Concord & 9th blog to explain how to assemble the envelopes, and give you all the measurements you need to make your envelopes and love notes!  They're very easy to put together!

BACK OF ENVELOPE OPEN WITH GIFT CARD INSERT



I used several stamp sets to decorate my envelope.  The word enjoy, the hearts on the coffee cups, and the flourishes on either side of the coffee cups are all from the LOVE NOTES STAMP SET.  There are SO many wonderful stamps in this set and I'm sure some of the other DT members will be showing those today.  The coffee cups and the word "coffee" are from the COZY UP STAMP SET.  The tiny heart borders were made with the heart from the O CHRISTMAS TREE STAMP SET.  The notches that were cut on the back of the envelope and on the piece of card stock that holds the gift card were all done with a die that's included in the LOVE NOTES ENVELOPE DIES.

You don't have to use new products to play along, you can try a "new to you" technique if you like.  And as always the prizes are wonderful!  One winner will be invited to be a guest designer with us, and another winner will be chosen through random.org to win a $25.00 gift card to Concord & 9th!  You have until the 29th of January to enter.  Please pop over to the Where Creativity Meets C9 blog to see what the other design team members have created to inspire you, and don't forget to check us out on Instagram and Facebook!

Reverse Confetti January Release Blog Hop

The day is here, the new products are now available in the Reverse Confetti Store!  We're also going to be hopping today, showing you even more ideas to use the awesomeness that is the January Reverse Confetti Release!




I have 2 cards to share with you today.  The first card uses the new MY ROCK stamp set which was previewed yesterday, along with the beautiful CROSS Confetti Cuts.




To make my card I started by placing a piece of patterned paper from the TRUE LOVE 6X6 Paper Pad on a dark gray card base.  Next I die cut a piece of white card stock using Lacy Scallop Frames Confetti Cuts and stamped the sentiment from MY ROCK.  I die cut a piece of shiny gold card stock using CROSS Confetti Cuts and popped it up on the white panel.





I started my next card by cutting a strip of the packaging that came in my Reverse Confetti box.  I got the idea of recycling this paper from Amy Tsurata, isn't she clever!  Next I stamped the beet from FOODIE FUN using SALSA Dye Ink and Avocado Dye Ink, and die cut it using FOODIE FUN Confetti Cuts.




I die cut a piece of Avocado Card Stock using XOXO HEARTS Confetti Cuts, cutting off two of the hearts with a scissors to adjust the size.  I stapled that to the brown packaging, glued the brown piece to a white card base, then popped up the beet image using some foam tape.  Easy peasy but oh so cute and punny!




Now be sure to hop along to see what the rest of the Confetti Crew and our special guest 'Fetti Friend have created to inspire you!  The next top on the hop is LISA HENKE!

Countdown to Confetti: Day 2

Welcome back to day 2 of the Reverse Confetti Countdown to Confetti!  I have 2 Valentine cards to share with you today using some great new products!





My first card uses one of the new stamp sets being featured today called CRAZY ABOUT YOU!




This card was very simple to make using a sentiment from CRAZY ABOUT YOU which I stamped in 2 colors, black and ROSE Dye Ink, along with the new HEART BANNERS Confetti Cuts.




I die cut the heart banners from ROSE Card Stock and the curved banners from the TRUE LOVE 6X6 Paper Pad.  They're so easy to string on twine and add to your card, which I did here.  I used the inside heart die cuts too, making them look as if they were falling down from the banner and around the sentiment.  So simple but so sweet!

This next card was made using 2 new Confetti Cuts dies.  I started the card by adding a piece of patterned paper from the TRUE LOVE 6X6 Paper Pad to a white card base.  Next I used some Kraft card stock and die cut a piece using the new ALL HEART COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts.  I popped that up with some foam tape on my card base.




The tag was die cut from PIGGY BANK Card Stock using the new LOVE YOU MORE TAG LAYER Confetti Cuts.  I popped that piece up with foam tape on a whtie tag cut using Topped Off Tag Confetti Cuts.  I die cut just the letters from LOVE YOU MORE TAG LAYER Confetti Cuts using some black glitter card stock to make the sentiment stand out a bit more.  I finished the card with some black sequins and pink twine.




So there you have it, 2 very easy cards to make that are both filled with lots of love!  Be sure to leave a comment on all of the design team blogs and on the Reverse Confetti Blog for a chance to win a 15.00 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store.  There's also a 15.00 prize up for grabs on the Reverse Confetti Facebook page so be sure to visit there too.

Countdown to Confetti: Day 1

Hello, friends, welcome to day one of the Reverse Confetti January Release!  We've got lots of wonderful new products to show you over the next few days that I know you're going to love!




Today we're sharing an adorable new stamp set called CURED!  Pigs are one of my favorite critters so I was tickled pink to see this set!




To make my card I started with a CLOUD WHITE Card Stock base and used the new HEARTS stencil along with the new PIGGY BANK Dye Ink pad and sponged some hearts on it.  Next I used the new TALL STRIPE PANEL Confetti Cuts and rustic cream card stock to die cut the piece you see under the pigs.  I stamped the pigs, grass, and heart banner from CURED, colored them with Copic markers, and die cut them using CURED Confetti Cuts.  I stamped the sentiment using black ink, and this cute card was finished!




I have another project to share with you today that uses several new Confetti Cuts!




I die cut a piece of PIGGY BANK Card Stock using the new GOODIE BOX Confetti Cuts.  Next I die cut 4 of the rounded squares from GOODIE BOX ADDITIONS Confetti Cuts using the wonderful new 6X6 paper pad, TRUE LOVE, and glued them to the box.  The hearts that you see on the 4 sides of the box were cut using XOXO HEARTS Confetti Cuts.  The little tag at the top of the box was cut from ROSE Card Stock using GOODIE BOX ADDITIONS Confetti Cuts, and the "XO" was cut using XOXO HEARTS Confetti Cuts.




I tied some pink twine at the top of tag, and clipped it onto my goodie box with a tiny clothespin.  This is such an adorable little box to share treats and tiny gifts in, don't you think?!

The new products I shared today are just the beginning, be sure to stop back tomorrow to see more!  Also, be sure to leave a comment on all of the design team blogs and on the Reverse Confetti Blog for a chance to win a 15.00 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store.  There's also a 15.00 prize up for grabs on the Reverse Confetti Facebook page so be sure to visit there too.
