Reverse Confetti - Introducing Lift Me Up

Are you ready to party?! I hope so, because Reverse Confetti is turning 3, and we're throwing a big ol' party in conjunction with the May release, kicking off with an absolutely adorable giraffe birthday set by Dawn Machell. Serious cute, folks!

Introducing Lift Me Up. I know, adorable! After watercoloring my images with Zig markers, I started working my scene using Edge Essentials Confetti Cuts for my grassy edges, Leafy Confetti Cuts, and Weather It Together Confetti Cuts clouds. Did you notice something else new? Reverse Confetti has the best garland dies and is adding to its arsenal this month with Linked Garland (see graphic below). 

 And those birds! They make me happy. Ü

The new release will be available for purchase this Sunday, May 8th. Come back tomorrow (and the next day, too) for more peeks at the new products coming your way. Definitely stop in at the Reverse Confetti Blog and leave a comment to with a $30 gift certificate. Leave a comment on the Reverse Confetti Facebook page for another chance at $30.

Something to Smile About!

I sure do have something to SMILE about and share with you today - I am joining the Color Throwdown Team! I was beyond thrilled (and honored) to be asked to join this great group of sweet and talented friends and am hoping you'll enjoy my weekly CTD posts as much as me. 

This week's color combo is just delicious and had me thinking of summer, especially since we've had a few nice, sunny days in Wisconsin this week! I pulled out Happy and Smiles from Simon Says Stamp that I'd never laid ink on and put together a happy little scene inside my favorite SugarPea Designs SugarCuts - Chatterbox Journal Card.

Those sunglasses crack me up, and I love the fine line sentiment to go with mr. sun. I just happened to have one of my SugarCuts - Whatever The Weather clouds just lying around on my work table and decided it would make a fun embellishment along with a little washi and enamel dots.

The sun is out, there's a new Color Throwdown Challenge in town, so come on out and join us for this week's challenge. Remember to link up your creation at the Color Throwdown blog and use keyword: CTD391 or #ctd391 and #colorthrowdown on social media, so we can see what you've been up to.

Color Throwdown - Kindess Matters

Happy Wednesday or Hump Day, whichever you prefer! I'm here with my final post as the April Guest Designer with the Color Throwdown Challenge. It's been an inspiring month full of yummy color combos and I'm sad to see it end. 

Today's colors had me convinced that I needed to create something nautical (my favorite theme), but I compromised a bit in order to get out of my box. I painted nautical stripes on my background layer and then layered it up with thread, enamel accents, sequins and a bold and beautiful butterfly.

That beautiful butterfly is Reverse Confetti's Butterfly Dreams and coordinating Butterfly Dreams Confetti Cuts. To make the striped background, I simply took a Zig watercolor marker, swiped it across watercolor paper, brushed water over the top of each and then spattered more water with a smaller brush and let dry.

I sure hope you'll make a little time to come on out and play along with this happy color combo! If you need a little more nudging and inspiration, head on over to the Color Throwdown Blog!

SPD SugarSketch 50

Hi all! It's Monday and time for a SugarPea Designs team post. I've teamed up today's card with the current SugarSketch 50. You'll find all of the sketch details HERE at the SPD blog, and while you're there, take a look-see at the rest of the Monday Team creations.

I can't get enough of the SugarCuts - Whatever The Weather dies - there's so much to love! I took advantage of the 4 squares in the sketch and squeezed in as many of those dies as I could in my white/aqua/yellow color combo. I double layered 'hugs' (SugarCuts - Chatterbox Journal Card) and gave it a coat of Glossy Accents to set it apart from the background square.
Thanks for stopping in today. Have a great Monday!

Color Throwdown 389 - Beach, Please!

How fun is this week's Color Throwdown #389 color combo?! It is screaming for some summer-lovin',  so I pulled out my Reverse Confetti Pineapples Aplenty and got to work. 

Using my MISTI for solid, even coverage,  I stamped the beach, please (cracks me up every time) pineapple in hot pink and medium green stem. One thing I've learned using the MISTI is to not press down too hard on the cover but rather press lightly, repeating 2-3 times. That way the image stays crisp and clean.

My RC teammie, Amy Tsuruta, was rockin' the washi tape last week, so I pulled out a roll of orange damask washi I've had for ages and ran a line of it from top to bottom. Lastly, I added enamel dots in the challenge colors. Clean and simple!

Can't wait to see what the rest of the CTD team has done with the colors, so let's take a look!

SugarPea Designs - Hello Beautiful

Happy Monday! I'm glad you stopped by today because I have a card for you today featuring a few of the new products just released last week at SugarPea Designs. Check in at the SugarPea Designs blog for even more inspiration to kick off your week.

I started with a fun piece of patterned paper as my jumping board and then layered it with my favorite SugarCuts - Chatterbox Journal Card die on which I stamped sentiments from Talk is Chic (this month's FREE with $60 set). 

I can't stop reaching for the sun die from SugarCuts - Whatever The Weather and chose a glittery gold version for my ensemble. A bit of washi and gold sequins and this one is set to sail.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day!

SugarPea Designs - Chatterbox Journal Card

Happy  Fri-Yay! There is a lot to be happy about today: it's Friday, it's Friday and it's release day at SugarPea Designs. Do you have your shopping list ready? You have until 6pm EST tonight to get your ducks in a row - good luck and happy shopping!

As I've mentioned before, I have a serious crush on the Chatterbox Journal Card die and have used it on most (all) of my Sweet Peek cards this week. It's just that perfect size and has such cute stitching detail around the perimeter, just right!

Did I mention that the Chatterbox Journal Card comes with 5 word dies as well? I used 'hello' for today's card, as in "hello, sunshine", get it?! Any excuse to use that adorable sun die from SugarCuts Whatever The Weather, I tell ya.

Thank you for visiting all week and leaving such sweet comments! If you have any questions, stop at the SugarPea Designs blog for complete release details and more inspiration.
