Reverse Confetti February Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the February release blog hop wtih Reverse Confetti! I hope you have enjoyed all of the countdown post projects. I sure enjoyed reading all of your lovely comments, so I want to thank you for that! The Confetti Crew is on hand to help your finish up your shopping list or to provide you with a bit more inspiration if you've already finished your shopping. At the bottom of the post you'll find the complete blog hop lineup ready for you to click-click-click.

Today's card uses a sentiment from A Friend Like You, Confetti Cuts - Edgers, a bit of watercoloring and a die cut shamrock using the heart die from S'more Love

I started by gold embossing the sentiment and then smooshed two shades of green dye inks over the top. The 'lucky' part of the sentiment gave me the idea to somehow create a shamrock, and the S'more Love heart die was just the right size (lucky me!). I thought the scalloped Edgers tied in nicely with the shamrock.

Once again, thank you for all of your sweet comments. Enjoy hopping through the Confetti Crew blogs and have fun with your new Reverse Confetti products!

So, when I saw what my buddy Lisa Henke did with her cool clear tote (click HERE), I just knew I had to copy it! She put suckers in her tote, and I changed it up to essential oils.

 Here's a closer look at the tag ensemble created with Confetti Cuts - Tassel, Stitched Flag TrioTag Me and a sentiment from The Lord's Strength.
Here's a view of the back...

Countdown to Confetti - Hippity Hoppity

Happy weekend, everyone! It's the second day of Reverse Confetti's Countdown to Confetti, and I've got a sweet little number for you using an adorable new Dawn Machell set, Hippity Hoppity (even the name is cute). 

I Copic colored and die cut the boy bunny from Hippity Hoppity and then added a jumbo carrot to the scene and embossed sentiment strip. Jumbo carrot is the Confetti Cuts - Flower Wrap and Tassel in disguise. I cut the carrot top (tassel) from one of the new Quick Card Panels - Hoppin' Dots.

And how about those cute stamped carrots and butterflies?!  I know. 

Thanks for stopping by to take a look at today's countdown post! Remember to leave a comment for a chance at a $15 Reverse Confetti gift certificate. You can also comment on the Reverse Confetti Facebook page for a chance at another $15 gift certificate. See you back here tomorrow!

Countdown to Confetti - Day 1

*click HERE for my SugarPea Designs Sweet2Repeat post*

Hi, folks! It's time to start counting sleeps until the next release at Reverse Confetti. The February release will be available for purchase on February 8th, and it includes 5 Confetti Cuts, 4 stamp sets and a fresh set of Quick Cut Panels called Hoppin' Dots. You're gonna love it!

I watched the coolest tutorial by Julie Ebersole (thank you, Julie!) awhile back featuring a super cool outer space background,  and I just had to recreate it using the positive and negative spaces of the Confetti Cuts - Swirlies along with the sentiment from A Friend Like You. I love, love, love looking for ways to stretch my dies and stamps in new and different ways.

After creating the background with dye inks, water and white paint spatters, I die cut Swirlies from watercolor paper and vellum. I then watercolored the solid circle with light gray and yellow to resemble a full moon and then layered it with the vellum Swirlies. The embossed sentiment from A Friend Like You is popped up on foam adhesive for a bit of dimension with a scatter of wood veneer stars for embellishment.

Sweet-2-Repeat Hop with SugarPea Designs

*click HERE for my Countdown to Confetti with Reverse Confetti post*

It's time for the Sweet2Repeat Blog Hop with SugarPea Designs featuring the products from the Winter Release. You may have some of or all of these products, so the Pod Crew on hand with a few more ideas for you. I've combined SugarCuts - Log Cabin Mountainscape and Timber to create a manly little valentine, just in time for the big day next weekend!

 I first die cut the mountainscape and then cut it again using the largest Stitched Flag. I then trimmed off a bit of the mountains on either side of the tree line to really focus in on the 'wood' themed sentiment I planned to use. I stamped the sentiment and then ran the whole thing through my Big Shot under (and within the confines of) the Woodgrain Journal Card so that I would get the texture from the die but not allow it to cut off any edges. The woodgrain hearts are from SugarCuts - Special Delivery Accents & Layered Treat Label.
Would you like to WIN a $20 gift certificate to spend on some SugarPea Designs of your own?  Please visit with each of the Pod Crew listed below and leave a comment for your chance to win. Thanks for stopping by today, I hope I've given you a bit of valentine inspiration.

Reverse Confetti Feature: Have A Heart

Happy Wednesday! I am popping in to share a card I made for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Have A Heart featuring Reverse Confetti products! Who could resist a chance to stamp with the adorable penguins from S'more Love, right? 

There's an adorable folk heart stamp and matching die in S'more Love that was perfect for this challenge. I really wanted that red heart to pop right out at you, so I simply stamped the two penguins, leaving them uncolored, and then triple cut and layered the Confetti Cuts - S'more Love heart to really make it pop. 

I also added a coat of Ranger Glossy Accents to the heart and then gave the little penguin a step up using a bit of washi tape and sentiment strip.

I hope you get a chance to play along with the Have A Heart challenge - it'll warm you right up!
