Reverse Confetti April Blog Hop


It looks like spring has finally sprung, and we can’t think of a better way to get some crafty spring inspiration than with a fun new Blog Hop from REVERSE CONFETTI!  Today, the Confetti Crew and a few other “friends” will surely brighten your day with their fabulous cards and projects.  We hope you will take some time and be inspired as you hop along with us right now!


The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog, and you should have made it here from Leigh Penner’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 inspiration for you to see using all of Reverse Confetti’s amazing stamp sets!



For my project, I combined the new CLASS ACT set with COUNT YOUR RAINBOWS from last fall to make a teacher appreciation card. The main panel was die-cut with CLASS ACT CONFETTI CUTS dies, and the top edge of the card base was die-cut with OFFICE EDGES CONFETTI CUTS. The number border at the top was cut on my Silhouette. The other horizontal strips are layered washi tapes.

My layout is the April Sketch For You To Try (more sketch challenge info at the end of this post):















I hope you’ve enjoyed hopping with us today. Be sure to hop with us on the 8th of EVERY MONTH for more REVERSE CONFETTI inspiration! Now it’s time to hop on over to Jen Tapler's blog. If you get lost along the way, you can find the hop order and list of all the participating designers over on the Reverse Confetti blog




How would you like to win some Reverse Confetti goodies of your very own?  Leave a comment on each stop along the way for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to REVERSE CONFETTI. Comments are open until Thursday, April 10 at noon CST, and the winner will be announced on the Reverse Confetti Blog!
A few things before you hop along though, just to keep you “in the know”…
