Reverse Confetti Release Blog Hop!

Hi there! Well, the holidays are right around the corner and Reverse Confetti has just released a collection of new products that will help get you in a festive mood and give you a jumpstart on your holiday crafting!

With 4 stamp sets and 7 new Confetti Cuts dies/sets, there’s plenty to choose from. You can even sprinkle your projects with a little donut love without having to go up a jean size! So put on some of your favorite music (Christmas, perhaps?), sit back and join us for our new release blog hop…

The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog, and you should have made it here from Leigh’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 the new Reverse Confetti stamp sets and dies! I have a couple projects to share with you today so lets get started!

First up is this really simple card showcasing the new Let it Snow dies and the Seasonal Sentiments stamp set.


This card came together super fast! I sewed the patterned paper onto the card base. Next, I cut out three white snowflakes and three gold glitter snowflakes and glued them down the center of the card. I embossed the sentiment in gold on a piece vellum and snipped some flag ends into the vellum piece. Last step was to tie some twine around the card and that's it!


Next up is another card using the super fun Marley Moose set!


I stamped Marley in black Memento Ink and then used my Tombow watercolor markers to color him in. I blended the colors with my water brush. I created the background by making a stencil with the the Let it Snow dies. I was going to create a tutorial for this but time ran away from me. All you do is cut a piece of cardstock the size you want your stencil. Then cut out several die cuts from that cardstock. I layered the stencil on the turqouise background and then sponged white paint on the the cardstock. I glued some shaved ice glitter (from Stampendous I think?) on the snowflakes and sewed around the turqouise cardstock edge. I tied some beautiful turqouise sparkly ribbon around the card and then popped the sentiment up on dimensionals.



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! Now it’s time to hop on over to Laurie’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.

Holy cow, these cards are amazing! Love how light and ethereal the first card is with the vellum and the gold touches and the watercoloring and the glittery snowflakes on the second card is fantastic!
