I'm on Confetti Camera!

Well, today is CONFETTI CAMERA day over on the REVERSE CONFETTI BLOG.  Every Thursday, the spotlight shines on one of the Confetti Crew designers and offers a glimpse into their creative process about their project created just for that day.  

Today it's my turn, and the theme this time has to do with color (or lack thereof?).  The challenge is to make a card or project using only BLACK, WHITE AND __?????__, meaning one other color of your choice.
So this is a little sneak peek at what I made.  Can you guess what we're celebrating here?  Check out my full project and lots more details over on the REVERSE CONFETTI BLOG HERE.  

A Banner Day at GASC in Arlington!

Well, after a crazy day working in Arlington at the Great American Scrapbook Convention all day, I thought I'd come by and make a quick post here!  I was in our booth for The Little Blue House working and doing a Make-n-Take from REVERSE CONFETTI.  I loved seeing everyone today!

We made these darling little tags using the new SEASIDE stamp set and matching SEASIDE Confetti Cuts.  Everyone loved stamping the cute whale and octopus (octopi, since we stamped several of them?).

Anyway, I also wanted to share this fun little tag banner I made the other day that will be one of two mini banners we will be making in my 'Fetti Fans Workshop up at The Little Blue House later next week.  The other mini banner is a sweet summer one that features 3 photos.  I'll post about it sometime next week as well. 

This one starts with the THANKS TAG Confetti Cuts and I stamped some red stripes from the SO STRIPEY stamp set.  Some of the other fun products we will use in class for this are the new SEEING STARS Confetti Cuts and the BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE stamp set.  I love anything patriotic (I'm pretty sure I've mentioned that before) and this set is a must have!

So you know what else is fun?  If you're planning on going to the convention on Saturday, Jen del Muro, the owner of REVERSE CONFETTI will be there doing another cute Make-n-Take in The Little Blue House booth #427.  It will be different from mine and it's adorable!  Don't miss it!  Also, take a look at your calendar.  Are you free on June 23rd from 10-1 or 6-9?  I'd love to have you join us for my mini banner workshop!  Give the store a call at 817-431-7930 to reserve your spot. 



June Sketch for You to Try

Well, JUNE'S Sketch for You to Try from REVERSE CONFETTI is in full swing, and I've seen some really good cards made with it both from the Confetti Crew and some of our fans.  Today I'm sharing my patriotic take on the sketch!

Here's a look at the sketch and my simple approach to it....

I still had a bunch of red, white and blue on my desk from a previous project, so I decided to stick with that theme for my card.  I love anything patriotic!   It was super easy to incorporate the new SEEING STARS Confetti Cuts as the top and bottom "circle" areas.  I used the circle from the FLOWERS FOR MOM Confetti Cuts (I really can't put that one down!) for the center focal point and stamped it with the new BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE stamp set that was just released.  The little "flaggies" on the side are from the STITCHED FLAG TRIO Confetti Cuts.  Of course I used lots of pop dots on this one, but it could easily be kept flatter with just gluing the pieces onto it and would be perfect to send to our troops!

Y'all be sure and head on over to the Reverse Confetti Blog 
and all of our social media sites 
to see what the other gals have created for today, 
and all the details on how to play along for a chance to win a  
Reverse Confetti Gift Certificate!  

June Diva Inspirations Hop

Well, it's time for the Verve Divas to bring you our monthly Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop!  You should have made it here from STACEY'S BLOG, but if you've just joined us, there's a link list at the bottom of this post so you don't miss a thing!  There are TWO $30 gift vouchers to the Verve store up for grabs this month and two ways to win! First, comment on the design team's blog hop posts (linked below) for an entry in the first giveaway. Then to be entered into our challenge prize drawing, go get inky and link up your take on the challenge. You have until July 5 to link up. Feel free to play along with the challenge as many times as you like. Verve stamps aren't required to play, but we do smile a little brighter when we see them!

Summertime is on the way and a soft beachy vibe is our inspiration this month. Soft neutrals and bold pops of color are sure to bring a bit of summer flair to your projects. Take your inspiration from the graphic or follow the color pattern, just have fun stamping. We can't wait to see what you create!

I love this color combo, and because Father's Day is coming up, I thought it would be a good time to make a sweet card for my sweet hubby.  He IS a good one!!!  I started by cutting the TAGGED RECTANGLE DIE from white as a nice focal point for my sentiment from the SPARKLY DREAMS stamp set.  The shape of the tag kind of resembles the jars in the picture!  Because I wanted to keep it pretty simple, I added the strip across the lower half of the card and tied some fun SEAM BINDING RIBBON across it in a beautiful bow.  I added several stars from the STARRY DIE and blinged them up a bit with some adhesive rhinestones. 

Next up on your hop lineup is TERESA!!!!! Go take a look at what she's sharing today, you know it will be beautiful!!!!

June Release Blog Hop from Reverse Confetti

Well, it's the 8th of the month and that means it's time for a brand new shiny blog hop from REVERSE CONFETTI!  This time, we each have two new projects to share for the hop.  Bring on summer with some of the cutest new products from our June Release!

The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog, and you should have made it here from LAURIE'S BLOG. It would be worth your while to start at the beginning of the hop, so you don’t miss a thing. We have tons of projects for you to see using all the new Reverse Confetti stamp sets and dies! 

I have 2 projects to show today.  This first one is a cute set of tags using the new SCALLOP TAG LAYER Confetti Cuts and the SAND DOLLAR Confetti Cuts as the main focus.  The sentiment is borrowed from our mermaid friend and her set, MERMAID KISSES.  These would be cute to hang on a water bottle for a party or for an end of year gift for a teacher.

This card is one that I tried something new with using the SUNBURST COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts.  I turned it on its side and cut a portion off so that the sunburst is coming from the side and not covering the entire card.  

The partial circle is covered with the circles and sentiment from the new MY HEART TRUSTS stamp set.  I love sentiments that fit perfectly inside circles for some reason!

Alrighty, I hope you’ve enjoyed hopping with us today. Be sure and hop with us on the 8th of EVERY MONTH for more REVERSE CONFETTI inspiration! You've reached the end of the hop!  If you got lost along the way, you can find the hop order and list of all the participating designers in the master list below or on the Reverse Confetti blog. Everything we've shown over the last few days, is now available in the REVERSE CONFETTI website.


A few things before you hop along though, just to keep you “in the know”…

June's SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY is open for you to play along.  Click HERE for a chance to win and become our newest ‘Fetti Fave!
