Reverse Confetti New Release - Double Die Cutting

Hi Friends! You've seen the sneaks the last three days, and now all the sets are released at Reverse Confetti!

You may have arrived from Heather Ruwe, but if not feel free to start at the beginning with the Reverse Confetti Blog

Aren't these hummingbirds adorable? I googled humingbirds, because I wasn't exactly sure what color they are, and was thrilled to see there are some with pretty pink heads! Yep, those are the ones I want to make!



For the background, I doubled up on the dies, and used BOTH the Peekaboo Cover Panel and the Circle Element. Because why not? Both of these designs have a center based in the middle of the card, so they compliment each other.




For any winged creature, I always like to adhere the body down and bend the wings up for some free dimension.

Here are the other cards from the sneak peeks in case you missed them:




I'm now pleased to send you to the blog of Audrey Tokach who has something fun to share!
 
Don't forget to check out all the new sets that were just released at Reverse Confetti!

Thanks for stopping by!

Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Daffodil & Glitter CardstockRelease Blog Hop + Giveaway

 

Hello Friends! Oh my glitter! We know Altenew has beautifully gradient color cardstock sets, but now they are offering GLITTER gradient color cardstock sets!

You may have come from the talented Sande Woodson, but if not feel free to start at the beginning with Altenew Card Blog.

I'm kicking myself for not thinking of using glitter paper earlier for some of the floral layers in the Craft-a-Flower dies, it's just so pretty!!

Pink Brilliance Glitter Cardstock

There are other colors, but this is the pack I used to add details to my Craft-a-Flower layered die flower (Peony Dream).

The best part about using the glitter cardstock with the Craft-a-Flower dies is that you only need to use it on a few of the layers. Use plain colored cardstock for the larger layers, and just use the glitter cardstock for a few of the detail layers.


The Frilly Frame Die adds some nice texture in the background, and the leaves cut from the Just Leaves Die set fills in the bottom of the card. Throw in a few vellum leaves for good measure.


One last thing, do you recognize the background stamp on the panel? It's the strip of waves stamp from A Lighthouse Stamp Set stamped multiple times! 

A note about the glitter cardstock ... if you're interested in it, I would move quickly, as it's expected to sell out quickly. There's only a limited supply available during this release. If it's sold out by the time you click, just sign up for the back-in-stock notifications so you'll be emailed when it's restocked.

Giveaway Prizes

$200 in total prizes! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky winners and a $20 gift certificate to 5 winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or each designer’s blog post on the blog hop by 07/13/2021 for a chance to win. Altenew will draw 7 random winners from the comments left on each stop of this blog hop and announce the winners on the Altenew Winners Page on 07/15/2021.


I am now pleased to send you to the blog of Linda Westfall who has a beautiful daffodil to share with you!

Thanks for stopping by!

Reverse Confetti - Oceans of Love, and a Really Handy Die

Hello Friends! Welcome to the final day of sneak peeking before the big Reverse Confetti release day tomorrow! My card features the new Oceans of Love stamp set, and the Circle of Waves stand-alone die:


I cut my own heart out (to tie in with the sentiment) and then adhered several shades of blue and green from the Ocean Waves die. It's great having all these waves in the circle because: 

1) You get to add shades of color,
2) You have places to ground a lot of different tiny objects (fish, jelly, turtle), and
2) It's a great place to tuck things into (like the coral).

I have to admit, often when I work with sets that have a lot of tiny images, I love how cute they are, but sometimes struggle with where to put them all so they don't seem like they are floating in space. 

The Ocean Waves die completely solves that problem!

I love the sentiment that comes with the Oceans of Love stamp set, and embossed it on vellum to span across the Ocean Waves die.

PRIZES: We will be giving away two prizes - $15 for a blog commenter, and $15 for a Facebook commenter! To enter, leave a comment on each sneak peek post for each designer. Comments will close at noon CST on July 7th and the winner will be announced at 5pm on July 7th on the Reverse Confetti blog and FB page. Good luck!

It's now my pleasure to send you to the blog of Audrey Tokach who's had some great sneaks these last few days! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Reverse Confetti - What's a Rainbow Floral Snowflake?

 

Hello Friends! Day #2 of the sneak peeks for the Reverse Confetti release, and we've got more goodness to share!

This set is called "Bloom" and it does just that! There's one long line of flowers, and a few separate blooms and leaves for you to fill in any gaps.

For this card I used the long line of blooms to make a "rainbow floral snowflake" by rotating the top half around a center point. I think this is such an easy way to make a pretty arrangement.

To cover the point of rotation, I put the wide sentiment on top of it. This is another sentiment from the new Lovely Day set. 

I think this would look good as an actual snowflake too, by using a couple different shades of blue. What an easy holiday card that would be!

PRIZES: We will be giving away two prizes - $15 for a blog commenter, and $15 for a Facebook commenter! To enter, leave a comment on each sneak peek post for each designer. Comments will close at noon CST on July 7th and the winner will be announced at 5pm on July 7th on the Reverse Confetti blog and FB page. Good luck!

Reverse Confetti - Sneak Peek Day #1 with Tropical Leaves, Lovely Day Sentiments

 

Hello Friends! I'm thrilled to be participating in my first Reverse Confetti release sneak peek as a 'Fetti Friend! It's "absolutely wonderful!!"

You may have arrived from the blog of a very talented old teammate of mine from the Fusion Challenge, Jeanne Jachna! If not, feel free to start at the beginning with the Reverse Confetti Blog.



The first set we're sharing from this release is the Tropical Leaves stamp and die. What's great about this set is the giant size of these leaves, which makes it easy to either feature them as their own focal point, pair them with a flower or two, or stamp a quick background.


For this card I used two of these ideas ... featured them as their own focal point, an exotic bouquet, as well as stamping the leaves in the background. Such a versatile set that's sure to be a staple!


Speaking of staples, this sentiment comes from a set of five large-sized sentiments in the Lovely Day set. I'm always a big fan of sentiments that feature both a scripted font and a printed font, and this one not only checks that box, but it's also perfectly sized to span the entire width of an A2-sized card!
 
Be sure to check back tomorrow for the debut of the next set in this release!
 
PRIZES: We will be giving away two prizes - $15 for a blog commenter, and $15 for a Facebook commenter! To enter, leave a comment on each sneak peek post for each designer. Comments will close at noon CST on July 7th and the winner will be announced at 5pm on July 7th on the Reverse Confetti blog and FB page. Good luck!

Colorado Craft Company - A Rainbow of Paint Brushes Just Released!

Hi Folks! Colorado Craft Company has released several new sets in three of their series: Big & Bold, Savvy Sentiments, and Lovely Legs. One of my favorites is this set of artist brushes in the Big & Bold Color My World Set

You may have come from Jennifer Kotas, but if not feel free to start this blog hop at the beginning with Adrienne Kennedy CCC.


This sentiment which comes with this set is in a nice script font, and is embossed in gold on vellum. I only adhered it on the back of the panel and left it loose on the front.


It was fun to stamp and watercolor all the paintbrushes. I staggered how much of each brush to stamp along the left margin and then stamped the rest of the handle on the right.


I wanted to make these seem like used paint brushes, so I added some paint color at the end of the bristles. This is a great stamp set to use for sending cards to your favorite crafty friends!

Prizes:
We will give away each individual stamp set from this release to 8 winners. Leave a comment on each blog in this hop by July 2nd at midnight mountain daylight time to be entered. We will announce the winners on the Colorado Craft Company blog and email blast on Monday July 5th.

I am pleased to send you to the next stop on this hop, Daniel West, who will delight you for sure with his creations. 

Here's the full hop list for your reference:
