A Sketch For You To Try from Reverse Confetti


Well, today it's my turn to share my latest card for the FEBRUARY SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY from REVERSE CONFETTI.

 
I know what you're thinking...whaaa????  That doesn't look like the sketch.  There's not three squares on that card and the sketch doesn't have a left side panel!  Sometimes a sketch doesn't have to be taken to the "nth" degree of literal.  This is more of an "abstract" version.  The "for", "you" and flowers take the place of the squares, and they're even a little inverted.  Now can you "see" it?  LOL.


If you saw my Inspiration Station feature in the RC Newsletter, you know I've been crushing on black and white stripes matched up with pretty florals and for this card, I used some more!


I started with the TALL STRIPE PANEL Confetti Cuts along the left of my card. Then I cut the "for you" words from the TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts set and added the sentiment right below it from the FANCY WORD COORDINATES stamp set.  The flowers and leaves cluster was created by stamping and cutting several from the BLOOMS 'N BUDS stamp and die sets stamped in a variety of pinks, corals and green ink from Reverse Confetti. 

Here's a look at what I used today. Y'all be sure and head on over to the Reverse Confetti Blog to see what the other gals have created for today, and all the details on how to play along for a chance to win a Reverse Confetti Gift Certificate! Why don't you play along!?!?!

Love is in the Air Blog Hop from Reverse Confetti


Well, it's the 8th of the month and that means it's time for a little inspiration with our monthly blog hop from REVERSE CONFETTI! Love is definitely in the air with this blog hop--our theme is "anything BUT a card":  Valentine's style!

The hop started over on the REVERSE CONFETTI BLOG and then moves on over to AMY KOLLING'S BLOG, and you should have made it here from JEANNE JACHNA'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 projects for you to see.


I have always loved the cute little puns that are used on children's Valentine's cards.  You know, like the ones that they exchange at school.  Even though my kids are too old and we don't buy them anymore, I still like to look at the boxes of them all when February rolls around.  Someday, I want to make a cute project with some of them.  Any ideas?


For now, I thought I'd do my best to use a few things to make a couple of Valentine treats and tie in those punny sayings to make them "loveable"!  I started with a couple of the BITTY WINDOW BAGS.  I stamped the lion, banners, hearts and sentiment from the LEAPING LIONS stamp set. The little cheetah and sentiment is from the HEART SPOTS stamp set.  I cut everything out from the coordinating Confetti Cuts sets.  The sentiments were stamped onto the smallest die from the PIERCED ROUND TOP LAYERS Confetti Cuts and then punched holes with my Cropadile and tied onto the little bags.








That's about all from me today, but there's a couple more stops to make on the hop today.  Hop on over the WANDA CULLEN'S BLOG for the next stop on the hop.  Here's the master hop list in case y'all want to go back and look again at the fabulous creations today!

Love You Lots!


Well, it's been one month since Christmas and we just now took the tree and all the decor down this past weekend.  That's a really long time for us to leave it up, but we literally never had the spare time!  I still have 3 tubs and a box of things we didn't use this year to look through to see if we need to just get rid of what in them since they obviously aren't our favorite pieces.  I'm tired of having to sift through it every year to put out what we love.  So if anyone wants to come on over and help me, you can have anything we no longer want!

 So now I'm getting into full Valentine's mode, wanting to make all the heart things and put out a few little Valentine touches in my house!  I had a card class to teach earlier this week and I couldn't resist making a few Valentine cards.  This is one of them--a more masculine Valentine card that I'll probably give to Eric this year.  Shhhhhhh......


I started off with my favorite gray REVERSE CONFETTI cardstock, STORMY as my base, and then cut 3 SWIRLIES Confetti Cuts from white.  The red hearts were stamped in BRICK using the new CONGRATULATIONS stamp set, and the black heart was cut from the CONGRATULATIONS Confetti Cuts set.  I grabbed the arrow from BOHO VIBES and just popped up the end when I attached it to my "bullseye".  The XOXO is from the XOXO HEARTS Confetti Cuts.  "Love you Lots" fit perfectly down across the bottom from the new HEART FILLED SENTIMENTS set that I LOVELOVELOVE!!!

Ok, well I guess I better go tackle those buckets and boxes since no one has come knocking on my door to help me!  LOLOLOLOL!!!! The faster I get them done, the sooner I can put out my Valentine's stuff!  (I'm on a reward system here.)

January Sketch for You to Try from Reverse Confetti


Well, today it's my turn to share my latest card for the JANUARY SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY from REVERSE CONFETTI.


I'm in the process of de-cluttering and organizing my craft studio, which includes going through and pairing all my Reverse Confetti stamps and dies in their matching sets. I know, how did I let it get that way (unmatched and in such a mess)? You don't want to know.  Anyway, as I ran across my favorite little panda set and dies, MISO HAPPY and MISO HAPPY Confetti Cuts, I kept him out to use for this card.  The sketch was so easy to follow and I only made a couple of tweaks to it!


Once I had my panda stamped and cut, I decided to make my little horizontal piece go in front of the circle instead of behind, as it made a great place to stamp my sentiment from the new HEART FILLED SENTIMENT stamp set.  Again, because all my stamps were fresh on my mind after touching practically all of them recently in my re-org, I realized it had been a while since I used the ELEMENTAL STRIPES and made a cool diagonal pattern in Flamingo onto some Piggy Bank cardstock.  I then cut the hearts from the XOXO HEARTS Confetti Cuts (that I LOVE, but sadly lost the heart banner to) and added them as the little embellishments.  This will be such a cute card to give to Eric on Valentine's Day with the Moscato I bought!








Here's a look at what I used today. Y'all be sure and head on over to the Reverse Confetti Blog to see what the other gals have created for today, and all the details on how to play along for a chance to win a Reverse Confetti Gift Certificate! Why don't you play along!?!?!
