Reverse Confetti Blog Hop


Hello August and Hello REVERSE CONFETTI Fans!  It’s the 8th of the month –Blog Hop time!  I am so excited to be included in the fun! I have been a fan of Reverse Confetti since Jen released her first sets. Last month’s release was fantastic and today we are inspiring you with projects and cards using those stamps and any other previously released stamps from Reverse Confetti.  Along with the Confetti Crew (the fabulous design team), they've also invited some extra friends to join in on the action! Thats where I come in!

The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog, and you should have made it here from Laurie Schmidlin’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 inspiration for you to see using all of Reverse Confetti’s amazing stamp sets!

I have several cards to share with you today. This first one uses Arrows n'  Elements. I used a couple of fun new Bella Blcd. die cuts and added some stamping to them. The little heart stamp was the perfect one to create a pattern for the cutout in the little card.




This next card uses the Celebrate Cake set. I was totally inspired by a card made by Betsy Veldman. You can see it here. I loved the idea of the inked vellum circles and thought they'd be perfect with the little cupcake stamp.

 I made this one for my sweet sister in law, Patty. Hope she likes it. :)


On my next card I stamped the solid circle background from Whole Lotta Dots. Then, I stamped over it with the linked circle background. This created the background of the card. I then added some Echo Park stickers and finished it off with the sentiment and banner flags from Arrows n'  Elements.



My final card is really simple, which usually isn't my style. But, given the burst of neon color, I like it.
I started off by using my neon Mr. Hueys in orange, pink and yellow. I squirted them on an acetate sheet and spritzed it with a bit of water.
Then, I placed the solid circle background from  Whole Lotta Dots in it and stamped onto the white cardstock. I punched a circle from the background that this created. On top of it, I layered images from Arrows n'  Elements. I finished everything off with some enamel dots and washi tape from Freckled Fawn.

So, those are my cards. I really enjoyed using the stamps and combining sets as I made them.
