February Sketch For You To Try


Well, usually right after the Reverse Confetti Release, I get to take a little breather (you know, finally do all the domestic things that get put off when you have crazy deadlines), but not this week.  I had to keep right on keepin' on because this week is what I dubbed "Doctor Palooza" week with my mom.  She's had an appointment of one type or another every day this week, so my crafty time has been at a minimum.  We started down the cardiology track with her (she'd never been seen by one before), so many tests were in order this week.  Today, we will be finding out the results from them all.  Wish us luck!

I did manage to get a little crafty on Monday afternoon before all this really ramped up, and made a couple of new cards (one is for the Inspiration Station, so if you've not signed up for the Reverse Confetti newsletter yet, I highly recommend.  Wink!).  As far as this card goes, can you tell it follows the latest SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY from REVERSE CONFETTI?  LOL!


I think this has to be one of my favorite cards I've made in a while!  To be honest, when I first saw the sketch, I was not in love with it.  BUT, it was actually super fun and easy to work with!  Look out LBH 'Fetti Fan girls, we might have to use this in class!  I used my new favorite bunnies from the HIPPITY HOPPITY stamp set and die cut them with the HIPPITY HOPPITY Confetti Cuts.  Then I die cut them again with a circle die, leaving their ears clear of the "blade", so that they would stick out.  This let the bottom of them follow the curve of the circle backgrounds.  For the other two circles, I used the STAMPED NOTE Confetti Cuts for the hearts, and the love word from the LOVEY WORDS Confetti Cuts set, paired with the LOVEY WORDS COORDINATES stamp set. Don't tell Eric, but I'm giving this one to him for Valentine's Day, and no you can't read what I'm writing on the inside!  hehe.

February Verve Diva Inspirations Hop


Well, it's time for the Verve Divas to bring you our monthly Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop! There are two ways to win Verve prizes: comment on the design team's blog hop posts (linked below) to see their take on the inspiration, then go get inky and link up your take on the challenge to be eligible in our prize drawings! You have until March 5 to link up, so feel free to play as often as you like.

 
The pop of color in this industrial style loft speaks of the hope of spring in the midst of winter. Kind of like February... it's still cold and wintry, but new life is on the horizon. Feel free to take your inspiration from the photo or the color combo, whatever suits your fancy! We can't wait to see what you create.

Click here to link up your challenge entries
Challenge deadline: Saturday, March 5.
Prize: $30 gift voucher to the Verve online store!

So let's get to it---The hop started over on Julee's blog HERE and you should have hopped all the way through to STACEY'S blog HERE and then here.  I'm glad you made it!

I loved everything about this inspiration photo including the little color swatches!  From the industrial shabby look, to the flowers, to the texture of the wall to the lettering and pops of bright pinks--I think I used it all in my card!  Add in the fact that I used Julee's fabulous Mojo Monday Sketch 434, the dimension this card has is crazy good!  I love it when I get to combine several patterns and textures.  I stamped the Plain Jane Psalm 119:105 onto the Sweet Scallop die.  The flowers and small sentiment are from the Joyful Blooms set with a combination of the Leafy Sprigs and Dreamy Leaves for the foliage. I did stamp the leaves first with the Dream Big set before die cutting them.  The tag is embellished with some seam binding ribbon from the Truly, Madly Deeply collection and the flowers needed bling (haha), so they got some fun sequin layers from the Pink Sparkle Mix.  

Gosh, I sure wish I had that bedding for a new springtime makeover in my bedroom!  It's looking kind of drab.  Now I'm inspired to do a little redecorating!   

OK, it's time to keep going on the hop, so head on over to see what TERESA did for your inspirational enjoyment!  I'm sure she's got something beautiful to share as always!

 
Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we're giving away a $30 gift voucher to Verve to one random commenter along the hop!

February New Release Hop from Reverse Confetti


Well, we hope you've enjoyed all of the new REVERSE CONFETTI sneak peeks we've had over the last few days for our February monthly release.  Just to recap, there are 4 new stamp sets and 7 new Confetti Cuts dies/sets available NOW that will make your heart skip a beat.  Today we are sharing some last bits of inspiration with y'all, so grab some chocolate, 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 LAURIE'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 using all the new Reverse Confetti stamp sets and dies! 


I have a couple of projects I'll be showing y'all today, since that's the norm for our Blog Hops--gotta love double the inspiration, right?! Both of them are cards, and I think this first one is a new favorite!  I used the stamp set, A FRIEND LIKE YOU on both of these cards, but embellished them with different things.  This first one uses the large GIFT CARD HOLDER TAG Confetti Cuts as the main panel for my card, and the new BOLD LINE PRETTY PANELS Confetti Cuts is layered under the sentiment circle.  The little owl is just one I cut from the patterned paper I was using.  


On this second card, the FLORAL WRAP Confetti Cuts take center stage with some of the flower "sprays" from it coming out from inside it.  I think my favorite thing about that set is the little tiny heart cutout tag that it comes with!  Hey Jen, what about a complete set of those in different sizes?  Ha! 


I also added some PETALS 'N POSIES Confetti Cuts for some larger flowers.  I have a feeling these two cards will be added to my set for this month's 'Fetti Fans class at The Little Blue House.  Wink wink!



Ok, 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! You've reached the end of the hop!  If you got lost along the way, you can find the hop order and list of all the participating designers over on the Reverse Confetti blog. Everything we've shown over the last few days, is now available in the REVERSE CONFETTI website.


A few things before you hop along though, just to keep you “in the know”…
February's SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY is open for you to play along.  Click HERE for a chance to win and become our newest ‘Fetti Fave!

Countdown to Confetti: The Lord's Strength


Well, we are on day three (the last day) of our sneak peek-a-palooza from REVERSE CONFETTI, and today will be no different in sharing some more great new products available tomorrow.  So far so good, right? 
NextRelease
Today brings another great stamp set.  I love the mix of fonts and larger size the new THE LORD'S STRENGTH stamp set is. 


THE LORD'S STRENGTH sentiment set pairs perfectly with the GARDEN BUNCH (don't y'all love the layered look of stamped flowers!?!  So posh!), and the sweet BASKET Confetti Cuts die set.  I've got a few more things up my sleeve for that one!  The green layer underneath is cut from a HOPPIN' DOTS Quick Card Panel with the new EDGERS Confetti Cuts and then I layered a white border on top of the scalloped edge.  Are any of y'all "bible journalers"?  This stamp set is absolutely perfect for that, too!  Yep, I'll probably do a little of that with it, since I'm behind on my weekly goals in that area.  Stay tuned!

Countdown to Confetti: Hippity Hoppity


Well, today is the second day of sneak peeks from REVERSE CONFETTI.  We have some pretty inspiring projects to show off today as we continue to share our new stuff available on February 8th!  The new set we are featuring today, HIPPITY HOPPITY will make your heart melt!

NextRelease
HIPPITY HOPPITY will be a must have set, along with the coordinating HIPPITY HOPPITY Confetti Cuts!


I kept a soft color scheme with this card, a simple layout, and colored my sweet bunny girl with Copic markers.  Yes, that only took a minute, since there's not a whole lot to color--benefit when you want to make something super quick and simple or make multiples.  Somebunny loves you--if you're a local fan, this is one of the cards we'll be making in my next 'Fetti Fans Workshop at The Little Blue House!  Wanna come play?  


Ok, that's about all from me today!  Come visit me again tomorrow!  We have lots more sneak peeks to share tomorrow.  Then, everything will be available on the 8th.  Don't forget that Jen has a link list going daily (FEBRUARY 5-8) for all the sneak peeks over on the REVERSE CONFETTI blog HERE.

Countdown to Confetti: A Friend Like You


Well, I got back from Minnesota late Sunday night and am still in recovery mode!  It was one of the most fun times I've ever had!  Our show choir, The Voices of Central, placed 4th, and got several other awards including the "People's Choice" and a new nickname, "The Sexy Texies"!!  It was a great way to spend my birthday and I would do it again in a heartbeat.  I can't wait for the next couple of competitions we are in (locally).
 NextRelease
After the whirlwind weekend, I went straight to work on Monday to create some fun things for our February release from REVERSE CONFETTI!

Today is Day One of our sneak peeks of 4 new stamp sets and 7new Confetti Cuts, along with the latest Quick Card Panel set, Hoppin' Dots.


My card today features the new stamp set, A FRIEND LIKE YOU which includes so many sweet phrases to celebrate friendship.  This one in particular is my favorite, and it's certainly dedicated to Jen!  It also uses a new HOPPIN' DOTS Quick Card Panel and the new SWIRLIES Confetti Cuts set for the "scribbly" circles.  I love them and have lots more ideas to try out with them!


Ok, that's about all from me today!  Come visit me again tomorrow!  We have lots more sneak peeks to share over the next 2 days.  Then, everything will be available on the 8th.  Don't forget that Jen has a link list going daily (FEBRUARY 5-8) for all the sneak peeks over on the REVERSE CONFETTI blog HERE.

Happy Birthday (to me!)


Well, right now, I'm in Bloomington, Minnesota attending my daughter Lindsie's Voices of Central Show Choir Competition.  I've never been to Bloomington or Minnesota or the frozen tundra, but what better day to be here with friends, other moms and to see all the show choirs compete than on MY BIRTHDAY!!!!


So before I left, I had a chance to play for a bit with some of my supplies from VERVE.  Two reasons for this card--I just wanted to make a good old fashioned birthday card and also because Audrie wanted me to make one so she could write in it and then give it to me when I get back.  AWWWW!!!  I had never used my PEACEFUL MEDALLIONS stamp set, so I decided to create a background circle for my birthday sentiment that is from the FRAMED FLORALS set which I cut using the MINI CLASSY LABELS die set.  I embellished my card with some silver for a change of pace from all the gold out there.  I cut the butterfly with the BUTTERFLY DREAMS die set from some glittery corrugated paper and then I added the PENNANT TRIM up at the top and just bent it a little bit to curve across the corner.  

I'm sure getting  home to see what Audrie wrote in my card for me will be just about as sweet as having a great show choir weekend with Lindsie!  Happy Birthday to me!
