A Work of Art? Nah.


Well, thanks for stopping by today to see me at my little ol' lonely blog.  I have a little quickie card to share with y'all today that in all honesty became sort of a little reject card from the last REVERSE CONFETTI release we had on May 8th.  Yep, he's not my favorite ever and and I came *this close* to not sharing it at all, but decided to be frank, admit defeat on this one, and at least show you the cool thing I did with the SWOOSH COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts die, because I plan on using this idea again, but hopefully do a better job at the execution of the cardmaking process!


I used the new WORK OF ART stamp set to first complete the little paint pallet and brush (I like that part), and cut them out with the WORK OF ART Confetti Cuts and also stamped the sentiment directly onto my card base.  I also grabbed my older COLOR ME HAPPY stamp set and went ahead and stamped the yellow paint splatters.  After cutting the SWOOSH COVER PANEL piece, I cut the frame off around the edge so that only the actual "swoosh" was left and attached it to my card at an angle (that's the part that I think is cool about the card).  I added my art pallet and some yellow enamel dots and called it done, as I was out of juice (or mojo?) for this one.   

So in the battle between crafty girl vs. no mojo, no mojo won.

May Sketch for You to Try from Reverse Confetti


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

SFYTT
I made this card a couple of months ago to fit this month's sketch.  We actually made this card in my 'Fetti Fans workshop at The Little Blue House in March (I think--I've slept since then!).  It does use the BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts die (on sale!).  


Instead of making the 3 offset squares in the sketch all the same, I threw in a rectangle for the middle one and used the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts for the scalloped piece, and the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts for the inner rectangle.  The main sentiment is stamped with the YOU'RE SO stamp set and completed with the YOU'RE SO Confetti Cuts "fabulous" die.  The card was embellished with a few layers of the BUTTERFLY DREAMS Confetti Cuts and some gold sequins.  I really love this card.  It would be great for an older adult's birthday and the colors just make me happy!



 
Y'all be sure and head on over to the Reverse Confetti Blog

and all the details on how to play along for a chance to win a

Countdown to Confetti: Simply Sentiments


Well, we are on day three (the last day) of our MAY sneak peeks from REVERSE CONFETTI, and today will be no different in sharing some more great new products available tomorrow. What's your favorites so far? There's so much to be excited about!  Let's not stop the birthday celebration just yet!

Today, we are giving a big welcome to the new SIMPLY SENTIMENTS stamp set.  Some of the Confetti Crew are also debuting the ONE DAY AT A TIME stamp set, so y'all be sure and come back tomorrow for the blog hop and see what I came up with using that one.


I have a couple of things to share with y'all today, both use the new MISO HAPPY stamp set, and both have the SIMPLY SENTIMENTS stamp set featured as well.  This first little tag was something I was so excited to make and it came out just like I had envisioned it in my head--KUNG FU PANDAAAAAA!  The SUNBURST TAG LAYER Confetti Cuts paired with the new Rust cardstock color was the perfect backdrop for Master Po Ping (from Kung Fu Panda).  Anyway, he turned out super cute! 


The other card I made uses the baby panda from MISO HAPPY atop the new little ROUND TOP TAG and then I added it to a card front adorned with a little patterned paper from the PATTERN PLAY 6x6 paper pad.


The background is made fromt he new VERTICAL STRIPES COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts.  I cut it from the blue and saved all the "negative" pieces.  Then I simply wove them through the "stripes" of the cover panel and pushed them all toward the bottom and secured them along the side with a little glue.  I really love this look and can see it being used for all kinds of fun cards!






Okay, that's about all for me for now--Just so y'all know...everything will be available on the 8th--that's tomorrow!  We'll wrap up with a blog hop that day as well that y'all won't want to miss. YAY!  Meanwhile, don't forget that Jen has a link list for all the sneak peek days (May 5-7) over on the REVERSE CONFETTI blog HERE.

Countdown to Confetti: Take Flight


Well, welcome to the second day of our 4th Birthday Celebration with our MAY sneak peeks from REVERSE CONFETTI. We're excited to keep going with some amazing projects to show off today that will be available on MAY 8th!

Today's inspiration on my blog is brought to you by the new stamp set called TAKE FLIGHT, and I've used a couple other new things as well that you are going to luh-huvvvvv including the new SWOOSH COVER PANEL that I'm totally in love with!!!


I have been wanting a fun kite stamp and when Jen and I were brainstorming new stamp ideas, I "flew" it by her and this set started to evolve!  Giddy is definitely how I felt once I saw the kite in true stamp form, so I couldn't wait to use it with this release!


I added a few more new goodies. I used the SWOOSH COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts (white) in the background, stamped the sentiment also from the new TAKE FLIGHT stamp set and also added "hello", one of the dies from the HELLO & THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts set.  (I LOVE this one also!)  The kite is paper pieced with papers from the new PATTERN PLAY 6x6 paper pad, and I added the aqua strip to help make the sentiment really pop. :) 



Okay, 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 (MAY  5-8) for all the sneak peeks over on the REVERSE CONFETTI blog HERE.
