Countdown to Confetti - My World


Welcome to the third and final day of Reverse Confetti's July Release countdown. All of the new products showcased this week will be available for purchase at midnight in the Reverse Confetti store



Be sure to visit the Reverse Confetti blog for links to all the designers posting peeks today. Leave comments on each designer's blog for a chance to win a $15 Reverse Confetti gift certificate. Also, head over to the Reverse Confetti Facebook page for another $15 giveaway. Both comment giveaways close at noon CST today.

For my first project, I've combined Later Alligator with the My World stamps and My World Confetti Cuts dies.


I started with a die-cut globe. Next, I cut an acetate circle using the large circle from the previously released Donut You Know Confetti Cuts die set. The large circle fits almost perfectly over the globe (it's just a hair smaller). I used white Staz-On ink to stamp the sentiment onto the acetate, then adhered the acetate to the globe with liquid glue under the gator's right foot and under the "w" in "world." 



Below the base of the globe, I did a bit of Copic coloring to ground the globe. The gator was stamped, colored with Copics, die-cut, and the popped up to straddle the globe.

STAMPS: My World, Later Alligator
CONFETTI CUTS DIES: Globe, Later Alligator
INK: white Staz-On
PAPER: white and gray card stock
OTHER: Studio Calico wood veneer stars, foam adhesive, Copic markers







Here's another take on the Globe Confetti Cuts die and My World sentiments. 


I started with an aqua and green watercolor background, then placed a simple white globe die-cut on it.


The sentiment was white embossed before watercoloring.



I added two wood veneer hearts as a simple embellishment.


STAMPS: My World
CONFETTI CUTS DIES: Globe
INK: Versamark
PAPER: watercolor paper, white card stock
OTHER: Studio Calico wood veneer hearts, foam adhesive, watercolors, white embossing powder




Today's posts wrap up our July release countdown. Hope to see you tomorrow for the July Release Blog Hop!

Thanks so much for joining me today.

Countdown to Confetti - You Are A Star & Posted Note


Welcome to Day Two of Reverse Confetti's Countdown to Confetti. The July release is just days away -- midnight on July 8. Today, we are featuring two more stamp sets, each with coordinating Confetti Cuts dies: You Are A Star and Posted Note.




Be sure to visit the Reverse Confetti blog for links to all the designers posting peeks today. Leave comments on each designer's blog for a chance to win a $15 Reverse Confetti gift certificate. Also, head over to the Reverse Confetti Facebook page for another $15 giveaway.


I have two projects to share today. First up is You Are A Star. I've been having so much fun with watercoloring lately, and couldn't resist trying out the galaxy sky look. The background is a color-intense blend of blues, a bit of purple, and a bit of black, plus some black and white speckles. Super easy!



I stamped the star image in two shades of yellow for a bit of an ombre effect and popped it up over a few loops of thread. The word congratulations is from the previously released Fancy Word Coordinates stamp set.




STAMPS: You Are A Star, Fancy Word Coordinates
CONFETTI CUTS DIES: You Are A Star
INK: yellow and golden yellow
PAPER: watercolor paper, white card stock
OTHER: watercolors, thread, Mister Huey's white mist, Studio Calico wood veneer stars, foam adhesive





My next project is a shabby chic take on the Posted Note stamp set and Posted Note Confetti Cuts die. 


Jen is a genius for thinking of making a pedestal frame die! I love the 3D versions you see all over Pinterest (herehere, and here, for example), and now we can have this sweet card-size version. Love!!


I die-cut the stand out of a whitewashed woodgrain pattern. The clip part is cut from a metallic silver cardstock. 



The handwriting font is just perfect, as are the collection of sentiments in Posted Note.  


STAMPS: Posted Note
CONFETTI CUTS DIES: Posted Note, Circles 'n Scallops
INK: Versamark
PAPER: Crate Paper, natural white card stock, metallic silver card stock
OTHER: vellum, distressing tool, sanding block, white linen thread, wood veneer hearts



Thanks for stopping by! Hope you're enjoying this month's countdown. See you tomorrow for Day Three!

Countdown to Confetti - Later Alligator and Weather It Together


It's Release time at Reverse Confetti! I've had so much fun with my project samples, and am excited to help introduce these new products. The July release includes five stamp sets, six Confetti Cuts dies/die sets, and a new limited-edition Quick Card Panels collection. We are focusing on two of those sets and companion dies today: Later Alligator and Weather It Together.

All of the new products will be available July 8 at midnight EST. 



Be sure to visit the Reverse Confetti blog for links to all the designers posting peeks today. Leave comments on each designer's blog for a chance to win a $15 Reverse Confetti gift certificate. Also, head over to the Reverse Confetti Facebook page for another $15 giveaway.


Ready for today's projects? Let's start with this stormy sky card that incorporates both of today's featured sets:


I started by watercoloring a background, which I die-cut using the large rounded rectangle die from the previously released Documented Confetti Cuts set. Next I colored (with Copics) this sweet little 'gator from Later Alligator (isn't he just insanely adorable?!) and die-cut him using the Later Alligator Confetti Cuts. I gave him a bright red umbrella and added some gray clouds and lightning, stamped with images from Weather It Together and die-cut with the Weather It Together Confetti Cuts dies.


This particular sentiment from Weather It Together fits perfectly along the bottom. Some baker's twine, and a few dots of diamond glaze provide the finishing touches.


Next is another under the weather card, this one featuring the Weather It Together stamp set, the Weather it Together Confetti Cuts, and one of the new Weather Or Dot {and Stripes} Quick Card Panels



First I marked the position of the clouds and lightning with a light pencil outline, then stamped the sentiment along a curve and machine-stitched some lines below the clouds. 


I popped up two stamped and die-cut clouds and one stamped and die-cut lightning bolt, then added some teeny tiny die-cut hearts to the stitch lines (they are included in the Weather It Togthether Confetti Cuts set). Last, I added some dots of dimensional glaze for a rain drop look.













Under the Weather Card #1

STAMPS: Later Alligator, Weather It Together

CONFETTI CUTS DIES: Later Alligator, Weather It Together, Documented

Wish Big on Your Birthday



It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

source: refinery29.com

To celebrate the Curtain Call's third anniversary, the Celebrate challenge will run the entire month of July!  The LEAD of this challenge will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!




I made a mini card for today's project, using Papertrey's Text Block Horizontal Birthday die. The circles are the negative cut-outs from the Circles Cover Plate. They've been "dipped" in Versamark and heat embossed in gold. I cut a decorative bottom border using the Edgers #1 die, and added just a touch of black using a tiny bit of one of Papertrey's Black & White Basics patterns. Easy and cute!

Make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs for more inspiration!
