I began my card with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base which is just the right size for your standard envelopes.
For the background, I created the slimline cross stitched template using my own design on my cameo silhouette and stitched some beach houses with the setting sun against the island with a few palm trees.
To finish the card, I created the sand by trimming a piece of thick white cardstock and heat embossed it with WOW sandcastle. I simply added a stitched banner with the sentiment heat embossed in yellow so the cross stitched background and cuties could be the focus.
If you are looking for many of the new releases and they are sold out of some of your favorites, head over to the Crafty Meraki store, she is fully stocked and for a flat rate of $5 in the US, you can’t go wrong!
Welcome! I am happy to have you hopping along with us at Reverse Confetti as we share more inspiration with you using the new release available today at 7pm! You should have come from Jessica Frost-Ballas along the hop or you can start with me!
I went with a bright and happy card for you today using lots of the new Reverse Confetti products:
I began with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base which fits perfectly into your standard size envelopes.
For the background, I first die inked the top a piece of Bistrol Smooth trimmed to fit on the front of my card with mustard seed & squeezed lemonade. I then cut the cross tiles panel to create a stencil and used the mustard seed to add the pattern over the inked yellow going a little darker for it to show slightly. I then stamped the fence from the Background Builder set in versafine black ink.
To put the card together, I die cut the small tag and inked the same way as the background and stamped the hello and added a strip of ribbon. I lined it up and stamped the happy mail above before adhering the tag with foam tape. I layered the flowers and mail box in the white grass popping up the one with the sentiment. I tucked the kitties behind the top grass and glued the rainbow down and used foam tape on the clouds.
For a little sparkle, I added a few sequins.
Here is the list of the Blog Hop, you should go to Susan Wymer next! I hope you are inspired to create with this adorably fabulous release!
It’s the final day of Reverse Confetti’s July release and tomorrow we have our Blog hop with even more incredible inspiration using the new release! Today, I am sharing as Guest Designer the new Stained Glass Butterflies along with the new Background Builder and This Says It All stamp sets with you!
I began my card with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base that fits perfectly into your standard size envelopes.
For my background, I first trimmed a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock a little smaller than my card front on the top and bottom, heat embossed the dots along the bottom in white and then inked with abandoned coral, wild honey & squeezed lemonade oxide inks. I adhered this to a piece of thick black cardstock.
I then created my word background by die cutting the circles from my cameo silhouette and using the edge essential dies to create the dots along the bottom before I stamped my repeated sentiments in versafine. I added this frame above the heat embossed dots with foam tape.
Next, I heat embossed the butterflies in clear over versafine on watercolor paper, colored them with Zig Clean Color markers, and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
To finish the card, I layered multiple die cuts of the XOXO and added a few black enamel dots and some white nuvo drops to the butterflies wings.

To put the card together, I added my pattern and white clouds adhering with glue or foam tape for dimension. I then added the images with foam tape and stamped my sentiment in purple on my inked panel.
For a bit of shine, I added some stars cut from glitter paper in coordinating colors along with some nuvo drops.
I began my card with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base that fits nicely into your standard size envelopes.
For my background, I first inked a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock with dusty concord, worn lipstick & spun sugar oxide inks and splattered with these same colors watered down along with some gold and white shimmer spray. After it was dry, I cut the top of the piece with the cloudy day panel and a few more from leftover pieces of Bristol Smooth cardstock.
I then used my cameo silhouette to cut out some vellum clouds and on white and stamped my sentiments, layering them along the bottom with foam tape. To put the rest of the card together, I adhered the bunnies onto 2 clouds from the cloudy day panel that are upside down and added more clouds throughout the top either with glue or foam tape. The rainbow I tucked behind two of the clouds with foam tape.
I finished with heat embossing the sun with WOW sandcastle and sprinkled some sequins around for a bit of shine.
For my next card, I used my favorite set from the release, Snail Mail!
I also began this card with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.
For the background, I first die cut the scalloped frame from my cameo silhouette and inked it along with the front of my card with iced spruce, evergreen bough & speckled egg, both from Bristol Smooth cardstock.
To put my scene together, I adhered the frame with foam tape and either glued or popped up the images along the bottom. I then stamped my sentiments using versafine and finished with a few blue domes.

I am so excited to announce that I will be a Guest Designer for Reverse Confetti for the next couple of months! Squealing!!! They have such cute and unique stamp sets and some amazing background dies! I went ahead and made a sweet card for my bestie for this occasion!
My best friends son just loves lions and I knew he would appreciate this card with his mom, I mean, just look how cute those lions are!?!
I began my card with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base which just fits perfectly into your standard size envelopes.
For the background, I used the new speckled egg with seedless preserves & milled lavender and splattered with these inks and some gold shimmer spray by applying the ink to some acetate and using a wet paint brush. I then cut out the frame from my cameo silhouette using thick white cardstock and stamped the sentiment along the bottom and adhered to the card front with foam tape.
Next, I stamped the images, colored them with copic markers and then cut out using my scan n’ cut but they do have the coordinating dies which makes your life much easier!
I added all the images with glue or foam tape to give dimension and stamped the second sentiment directly onto the inked panel.
Thank you for stopping by today and hope to see you soon as I share my creations for the new July release next week!
I began with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base that fits nicely into your standard size envelopes.
For the background, I first die cut the circle template from my cameo silhouette using thick white cardstock and inked a piece of Bristol Smooth with Altenew inks in starlight, tide blue, turquoise & sea breeze to go behind the circles. I then stamped the coral bottom twice, colored with copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut out and trimmed the edges to fit on my inked ocean. To cover the seam, I stamped one more coral, colored and die cut out with the coordinating die.
Next, I stamped all the fishes and sharks from the Sea You Soon and Best Fishes stamp sets, colored with copic markers and cut out with the coordinating dies listed above. To make the banners, I trimmed some leftover Bristol Smooth, inked them with the same colors used for the ocean, and stamped my sentiment using a variety of words from different sets.
To put the card together, I trimmed a piece of vellum to fit in the center to put my images on and soften the background for them to stand out. I laid it all out first and used glue dots behind the images to adhere the vellum and added all the rest with foam tape. I then put a few blue domes to finish my scene!
I began my card with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base which is just perfect for your standard size envelopes.
The idea for my card comes from a new style of modern block coloring that Yana Smakula has recently been showing in her beautiful cards! I definitely needed to give it a try and love the results!
For the frame, I stamped multiples of two of the leave sets from the Wildflower stamp set, colored just one leave on each in rainbow colors and fussy cut out. To get the best block look, you want to go dark, medium and light in your marker choices and let them dry in between applying so they don’t blend.
Next, I die cut the BEE-DAY twice, once from copic friendly cardstock and the other from black cardstock. I colored the letters in rainbow, of course!, and outlined them in the black to help them pop!
I then stamped the hugs and colored up the bee using the block technique and love how he came out!
To put it all together, I created my center first and then adding the wildflowers to the edges with foam tape and trimmed the tips off.
This is such a different style of card for me and I enjoyed making something unique and fun! I will definitely be doing this block coloring again!
To finish my card, I die cut multiples of the fiesta and inked the top layer with abandoned coral & tattered rose and glued the time on. I went with simple black enamel dots to add a little shine and draw your eye across the card.
