Reverse Confetti July Color Challenge


Well, I had a great time teaching and sharing REVERSE CONFETTI yesterday at The Little Blue House in Keller!  And today, I get to share some more Reverse Confetti love with all of y'all!

It's the 16th of the month and that means it's time for a new COLOR CHALLENGE from REVERSE CONFETTI

Take a look at the gorgeous aqua, coral and lime green color palette Jen came up with for us for this month...I think it looks so summery!


I thought these colors fit in well with using the CELEBRATE CAKE stamp set.  I had a "cupcake banner" in mind when I started this card, but it quickly turned into adding that bold gold heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts instead of a center cuppie!  The birthday sentiment is from the ALL ABOUT YOU Keywords set and I added the new CIRCLES 'N SCALLOPS for the "you".  Everything is set upon the newest big tag Confetti Cuts, TAG ME TOO which I stamped using the stripes from SO STRIPEY in gold.







Check out the July Color Challenge post over on the Reverse Confetti blog HERE for all the details on how EASY it is to play along and WIN a $20 gift certificate to Reverse Confetti!!

SUSIE Q-TIP:  A tag always makes a great backdrop for the focal point on a card.  Just sayin'.  Just make a cute tag, create a simple background for the base of the card, and use pop dots to add the tag and complete your card.

Stamps:  Celebrate Cake, All About You, So Stripey (Reverse Confetti)
Paper:  White, Aqua Mist, Berry Sorbet (PTI), Gold Mirror, Chevron (Paper Studio)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Berry Sorbet (PTI), Green Galore (SU!), Gold Delicata (Tsukineko)
Accessories:  Love Note, Tag Me Too, Circles 'N Scallops, Doin' the Wave Confetti Cuts (Reverse Confetti), Gold Enamel Dots, Ribbon, Divine Twine, Foam Boosters 
Finished Size:  A2
    


Smile, 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 I'm sharing a fun little giftie y'all won't want to miss, using some of the latest Reverse Confetti products!

Reverse Confetti July Release Blog Hop



Well we hope you all agree that this month’s release from REVERSE CONFETTIis hot, hot hot!  We changed things up a bit this month and brought you more dies than ever before, but still quenched your thirst for those fun Quirky Cuties with Rocky Raccoon and introduced what’s sure to be a new favorite, Fabulous Flamingo, just to name a couple of the new stamp sets (there are 4—along with 7 Confetti Cuts Die sets).  Today, we are making a final splash with all the new products, and bringing you our Reverse Confetti new release blog hop.  You’ll have it made in the shade once you see all the fun you can have with this release! 
 
The hop started over on the REVERSE CONFETTI BLOG, and you should have made it here from our 'Fetti Friend, MONIKA DAVIS' 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 inspiration for you to see using all the new Reverse Confetti stamp sets and dies!

 
I have two projects to share today featuring the new RC products.  First off is this watermelon card I made using the CIRCLES 'N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts, simply layered and glued together.  I added the smallest paisley for the seeds from the PERFECTLY PAISLEY Confetti Cuts.  The little button flower is actually the re-enforcer circle from the new TAG ME TOO die, and the sentiment I chose is from the FABULOUS FLAMINGO stamp set.  I love how I made the edges of the watermelon all spark-a-lay!

I kept the tag on the sweet and simple side, using the new TAG ME TOO Confetti Cuts along with the sentiment from the SO VERY SPECIAL Keywords stamp set. I cheated and simply wrapped up one of Lindsie's books in butcher paper to show how cute it looks on a little gift.  LOVE!  I'm thinking this may be the way to go this Christmas!

Ok, 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 over on the Reverse Confetti blog.

SUSIE Q-TIP:  The Confetti Crew was chatting about how to take a better picture when your card base is white.  Since most of mine tend to be that way, I've started using a subtle background paper (the polkadot) to set up behind my pics.  I think it at least helps it from becoming too washed out in the editing process.  For the tagged package, I just set it on a cane seated chair.  Still working on the photo skills.

Countdown to Confetti: Fresh 'N Fruity and Fabulous Flamingo


Well, I hope y'all have been following along this weekend with the sneak peeks for the new REVERSE CONFETTI release available tomorrow!  If you haven't, you're missing out and will want to check out the RC blog HERE to go back and visit them.


Today's the reveal of the last two new stamp sets coming your way--FRESH 'N FRUITY and FABULOUS FLAMINGO.
 


Let me tell y'all what, I have had a blast playing with everything from this month's release, but the new FRESH 'N FRUITY set is my secret favorite!  I love the polka-dotted fruit (there's solid too), and the fonts on the sentiments are awesome.  It was super easy to pull this card together because once the lemons and leaves were stamped, I quickly cut them out using the new FRESH 'N FRUITY Confetti Cuts.  I also used the new DIAGONAL STRIPE PRETTY PANELS Confetti Cuts on top of the LOVE NOTE because it fits perfectly.   


The new FABULOUS FLAMINGO set is just that-- absolutely fabulous, and there's also a coordinating FABULOUS FLAMINGO Confetti Cuts die set available.  The wings and beak of the flamingos (there are two that mirror each other--eeep!) are separate stamps so that you can stamp them in different colors.  Yes, that makes it easy.





I actually created a tag before this became an actual card with the new TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die.  It's clearly a nice big tag, and is great for being just that (stay tuned for my post tomorrow), layering it on a card, or using it on your scrapbook pages.  The little "re-enforcer" circle is so cute, all scallop-y and complements the new CIRCLES 'N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts quite well. 

Take a look at what I used today!
 
 
 






Just so y'all know...everything will be available on the 8th--that's tomorrow!  We'll wrap up with a blog hop that day as well that y'all won't want to miss.  YAY!  Meanwhile, don't forget that Jen has a link list for all the sneak peek days (July 5-7) over on the REVERSE CONFETTI blog HERE.

SUSIE Q-TIP:  I am really digging the color combo I used for my lemonade card--yellow, aqua and forest green.  The forest green is not a color I use often at all, and it was a nice surprise that it went so well with the other colors.  Now I'll be trying it with other combos "just to see".  I'm sure y'all have colors that just sit in your stash, too.  Be a friend to barely used colors, and give them a "fresh squeeze".

Countdown to Confetti: Keywords--So Very Special



Well, today is the second day of sneak peeks from REVERSE CONFETTI.  We have some inspiring projects to show off today!


Today, the Confetti Crew is sharing what we've made with the newest set from our Keywords set, SO VERY SPECIAL.  Jen and I have both decided that this will be one of our favorite "go-to" sets ever!


I made a couple of cards for this one, as I kept getting more ideas on how to use it.  Again, the SO VERY SPECIAL set centers around one main word--special--and has several phrases that coordinate with it for various sentiments.  The first one I did in a splashy theme, and used the new PERFECTLY PAISLEY Confetti Cuts dies for the water.  Love!  The fish are from one of our very first sets, HAPPY HARBOR and the turquoise circle is from the new CIRCLES 'N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts set (of 4 dies).



The other card I made has an unusual layout that I found on Pinterest (you can follow me HERE).  I used the SO VERY SPECIAL set off-center to highlight the new CHEVRON PRETTY PANELS Confetti Cuts die that I backed in orange with the rounded rectangle from the CLASS ACT die set. Yep, it matches up perfectly. 



Here's a look at all the new REVERSE CONFETTI goodness I used today.  We're just cool like that.  I can't wait for y'all to see all the ways those paisleys can be used!



 


We have lots more sneak peeks to share over the next 2 days.  Then, everything will be available on the 8th.  Don't forget that Jen has a link list going daily (July 5-8) for all the sneak peeks over on the REVERSE CONFETTI blog HERE.

SUSIE Q-TIP:  In case y'all haven't noticed, I've been really big into rounding the bottom corners of my cards lately.  Sometimes both at the bottom, sometimes just one in the bottom corner.  Why?  I couldn't tell ya.  I just like it for a change.  I also highly recommend the Zutter Round-it-All for this.  Cuts like buttah.  And it's pink, so there's that.  So very special.
