Reverse Confetti April Hop - Easter Bunny Treats


Welcome to Reverse Confetti's April Blog Hop! You have likely arrived here from Amy Kolling's blog, and you'll head to the talented Tricia Barber's blog next. If not, you can begin the hop at the Reverse Confetti blog. I'll have the full hop order at the end of this post.


For today, I've put together some Easter Bunny treats using some various RC goodies. I adhered two STITCHED HEX TAGS together along just the sides, decorated the face as a bunny, and used it as a treat sleeve. So easy!

To create the bunny's eyes, I layered three circle dies and used a fourth tiny circle to made highlights on the eyes. From big to small, the circle dies I used are: DETAILED CIRCLES, CIRCLE WISHES (ink-blended with ICED AQUA ink) DOTS TAG LAYER, and another CIRCLE WISHES for the tiny cut-out.



The ears were done with the MOD FLORAL STACK Confetti Cuts dies. I used the largest and smallest dies, cut the die-cut in half and layered them together.



On the gray bunny, I added the "happy easter" tag. The sentiment is from HIPPITY HOPPITY, and the tag is from the BOX WRAP Confetti Cuts set.



I cut three lengths of string for whiskers and adhered the thread behind a wood veneer flower. I sponged on some rosy cheeks with PIGGY BANK ink, then hand-drew the mouth using a black pen. TIP: trace around a small circle die to get perfect curves for the mouth (the white bunny is freehand, the gray one is traced, see the difference?!)

Reverse Confetti March Release Hop


Welcome to Reverse Confetti's March Release Blog Hop! 

All of the new products now available in the Reverse Confetti store.

7 stamp sets
11 Confetti Cuts dies
1 6x6 paper pad 


Join the Confetti Crew today for a blog hop to celebrate. The hop begins on the Reverse Confetti blog. You should have arrived here from Julee Tilman's blog, and you'll head to Tricia Barber's blog next. (The full hop order is down below, too.)



For today's project, I combined SPRING PALS with the super cute YOU'RE SUPER DUPER Confetti Cuts. This would make a cute kids' Easter card or just a pick-me-up card for "kids" of all ages! I love the look of these large sentiment die-cuts, and the size of the SPRING PALS critters is perfect for making little groupings around the sentiment.



I made three different critter groupings, then added a WORD UP sentiment to each one. "Love to love you" is one of my favorites in WORD UP, and I placed it next to the little duck kissing the frog.



In another corner, the sweet mama duck is peeking out from behind some tulips.



And then the third grouping is the bunny, another baby duck, and some carrots. 



For the background, I ink-blended some yellow inks onto a STITCHED RAYS COVER PANEL die-cut, then cut out the sentiment with the YOU'RE SUPER DUPER Confetti Cuts, then layered that onto a card base that I very lightly ink-blended with some light aqua ink.

Reverse Confetti March Countdown - Floral Gem + Sentimental Gems


It's the third and final day of Reverse Confetti's September release countdown - welcome!

Today's featured products are FLORAL GEM and SENTIMENTAL GEMS.

All of the new products will be available for purchase at midnight (ET) tonight.


 Don't miss our two chances to win a Reverse Confetti gift certificate: 1) Leave comments on each designer's blog; 2) Head over to our Reverse Confetti Facebook page for an additional giveaway. 


Sigh ... what a gorgeous floral set!

 

I started by stamping the main image from FLORAL GEM as well as all the separate layering florals onto some Cloud White card stock. I colored everything in softer colors with my Zig markers, then layered everything together.



I stamped a simple sentiment from SENTIMENTAL GEMS at the bottom and accented with more florals and the bee from HAPPY BEE DAY. Last touch was some gold splatter. These images don't require much!

Are these SO SUPER superheros just the most darling?! I decided to make a family portrait father's day card for my husband. The images are perfect -- two boys, one girl, and even a dog! 



My background is a white panel that I die-cut with the STITCHED RAYS COVER PANEL. Next I created a scene element out of the new STITCHED HEX TAG diecuts.



I die-cut the word "dad" using the MOM & DAD WORD DUOS Confetti Cuts die, and triple stacked the letters for a chunky, chipboard look. 



I colored all my superheros with Copics and placed them around the STITCHED HEX TAG element.



My boys ...



... and my girls.

I think my husband will get a kick out of this come Father's Day. And look how far ahead I am!
