Warm Fall Hugs!

Hello! Candice with you today and I just love the new Autumn stamp sets from the new release at Reverse Confetti and used them to create this Fall slimline card!

I used these Reverse Confetti products for my slimline design:

I began my slimline with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.

For the background, I trimmed a piece of Bristol Smooth to fit my card front, die cut the Circle Elements on each side, inked it with tea dye and antique linen, and splattered with white paint, brown and gold shimmer spray using a damp paintbrush.

While that dried, I inked a scrap piece of Bristol Smooth with crackling campfire and aged mahogany and cut it with the warm hugs die. I layered it on multiples of thick white cardstocks cut from more of the warm hugs die and glued to the center near the top.

Next, I stamped the floral bloom, leaves, cider mug, apple, and cinnamon sticks onto watercolor paper using Versafine Ink, colored them with Zig watercolor markers, and used the coordinating dies listed above to cut them out. I adhered them to the card using glue, foam tape, and double foam tape to really give depth to my images and finished with some dark pink jewels!

Zig colors I used: pale orange, brown, deep red, mid green, and deep green

Thank you for visiting with me today and I hope you are enjoying some beautiful Fall weather!

Reverse Confetti October Inspirational Blog Hop

Hello! I hope you are being inspired as you are hopping along with us today at Reverse Confetti while enjoying a relaxing moment! I have some festive gnome Christmas tags for you today that came together rather quickly with Reverse Confetti’s tag dies!

I used these Reverse Confetti products for my tags:

I began the tags by die cutting the bases twice, once from pattern papers and thick white cardstock, and adhered them together for a strong base. I then die cut the burst from the same thick white cardstock and glued to the center of my tags.

For the sentiments, I die cut the rounded banners using the thinnest die from the Three Tags set using the partial die cut method (die cut partway, rotate and line up, and run through partway again!). This allowed me to create the exact length for each sentiment that I heat embossed in white! I adhered them to the bottom of each tag with foam tape.

Next, I stamped the gnomes, trees, house, satchel, and stars, colored them with copic markers and accenting with a gold pen, and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I then used foam tape to or glue to put them above the sentiment banners and finished with some white ribbon and colored twine!

Don’t forget to take advantage of this fabulous Fall sale!

Magical Birthday

Hello! Candice with you again this fabulous Monday! Today I have a fun magical birthday mini slimline card for you!

I used these Reverse Confetti products for my mini slimline design:

I began my mini slimline with a 6 1/2 x 4 card base.

For the background, I first die-cut the cloud panel using the partial die-cut method (run through partway, rotate and line up, and run partway again!) to get the length I wanted for my mini slimline. I stamped my sentiment along the bottom and set it aside while I finished my inked panel.

For the inked background, I trimmed a piece of Bristol Smooth to fit behind the cloud panel, inked it with seedless preserves, worn lipstick, spun sugar, and antique linen, and splattered it with white paint and gold shimmer spray.

Next, I stamped the girl, bunny, mushrooms, tree, ladybugs, butterflies, and clouds, colored them with Copic markers, and used the coordinating dies listed above to cut them out.

To put the card together, I layered the cover panel, with a few extra clouds cut from vellum tucked behind, and adhered with foam tape over the inked background. I then added all the cuties and accessories using foam tape to give dimension to the scene and finished with a few gold jewels!

If you want a little extra space a mini slimline allows you space to create and using the partial die-cut method gives you options to extend your dies to fit!

Making Spirits Bright!

Candice back with you this Monday with another Christmas card! I pulled the Joyous Holiday stamp set from Reverse Confetti stamps out last week (one of my favorites!) and I really wanted color up the cute angels in the set.

I used these Reverse Confetti products for my slimline design:

I began my slimline with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.

For the background, I inked a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock with prize ribbon & tumbled glass on top and kitsch flamingo & spun sugar on the bottom, and splattered it with white paint and gold shimmer spray with a damp paintbrush. I want to admit that when I first inked this panel I almost threw it away but I know how different it looks once you add splatter and cover it with cuties! So sometimes try and work through things even if you can’t see the end results!

Next, I stamped the angels, trees, and stars, colored them with copic markers, and used the coordinating dies listed above to cut them out. I then die cut the ‘CELEBRATE’ from tan velvet cardstock using foam tape to pop it up on the card front and then stamped the sentiment below it. I arranged the images around the ‘CELEBRATE’ and finished with a sprinkle of blue jewels!

I hope I have inspired you to get started on your Christmas cards!

Thanks for stopping by with me today!

Wishing You Joy!

Candice back with you today and I again had to play with Reverse Confetti’s new September release, this time with the Christmas products! This new tree die is perfect to highlight (and use again!) your cross stitch panels with gorgeous different patterns! There is enough space to do all the fun detail stitches for a stunning Christmas card!

I used these Reverse Confetti products to create my slimline design:

I began my slimline with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.

For the background, I first trimmed a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock to fit a little smaller than my card front and die cut the tree near the top making sure to center it. I then die cut the cross stitch panel and created my stitched design lining it up behind the openings in the tree. I then adhered the tree panel with foam tape over the cross stitched piece and used foam tape to add to the front of my card.

Next, I stamped the crib, colored it with copic markers, and used the coordinating dies to cut it out. I then cut the ray die and ‘peace’ from gold foil cardstock and the ‘peace’ shadow from blue shimmer cardstock.

To put the card together, I glued the ray down and added the layered ‘peace’ and crib with foam tape and simply stamped the sentiment beneath!

I hope you are inspired to try a cross stitch pattern or come up with a design to use behind this amazing tree!

Thank you for stopping by with me today!

Hello, Fall

Hi! Candice with you this Monday and I cannot tell you how much I am loving the new September release from Reverse Confetti, it is full of your choice of Halloween, Fall, or Christmas! This week I went with a Fall card using the new release because I so love the change of colors I get to use when creating, don’t you?!

I used these Reverse Confetti products to create my card:

I began my card with a 6 1/2 x 5 card base.

For the background, I die cut 2 panels from the All Lined Up Cover Panel die, one from dark brown cardstock and the other from pattern paper. I offset these gluing them together and trimming the bottom one and adhered to the center of my card. I then die cut the fabulous Large Detailed Circle die from the dark brown cardstock and used foam tape to pop it up.

The banner I created by using the partial die cut method with the tag die (run partway through your machine, rotate and line up, and run it partway through again!). I heat embossed the sentiment in white and used foam tape to put below the circle.

Next, I stamped the Fall floral cluster and apple cider mug, colored them with copic markers, and used the coordinating dies listed above to cut them out. I added them also with foam tape to give lots of dimension to the card around the circle and finished with a few gold jewels!

I hope you are inspired to try these colors on your next Fall design and take a moment to go check out the amazing new release HERE!

Thank you so much for visiting with me today!

SSS Stamptember & Reverse Confetti

Simon Says Stamps Stamptember is always a month to look forward to and today I am excited to be joining the collaboration with Reverse Confetti stamps! This gorgeous floral set, Autumn Blessings, is available today for you to get your hands on!

I used these products for my slimline design:

I began my slimline with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.

For the background, I created the slimline stitched panel using the partial die cut method (run through partway, rotate and line up, and run through partway again!). I then inked the panel with forest moss, peeled paint, and crushed olive, splattered with white paint and gold shimmer spray, and once dry, I stamped the sentiment.

Next, I stamped the image 4 times on watercolor paper, colored them with zig watercolor markers, and cut out with the coordinating dies. I adhered them to the front with foam tape and trimmed the bottoms with scissors. I finished with accents on the images with a white pen and sprinkled some dark pink jewels!

I used these Zig watercolors: yellow, light brown, olive green, mid green, deep brown, pale rose, deep red, and pale violet.

You can see all the designs created with this wonderful stamp set on the Simon Says Stamps blog!

Reverse Confetti September Release Inspirational Hop!

We are sharing some great inspiration with you on this Blog Hop showcasing the new September release from Reverse Confetti! You should have come from Reverse Confetti and I have the full hop list below!

I am highlighting the fun new Halloween products in this release on my slimline card!

I used these Reverse Confetti products on my slimline design:

I began my slimline with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.

For the background, I created the frames by die cutting the orange pattern paper from the stitched square frames 3 times, lined them up on my card front, and trimmed the edges. I trimmed some Bristol Smooth cardstock to fit behind the frames, inked them with wilted violet and milled lavender, and splattered with white and black paint.

Next, I stamped the cats, bat, and moon and stars, colored them with copic markers, and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I arranged them in the frames with foam tape. I then die cut the ‘boo‘ from dot pattern paper and the shadow ‘boo‘ from black cardstock and glued between the top 2 frames. I stamped the sentiment between the bottom 2 frames and finished with a few purple jewels!

Reverse Confetti SYS September-Halloween/Fall Fun

Hello! It’s Candice with you at the beginning of the month to kick off this September’s SYS theme-Halloween/Fall Fun! I love the change of color on the leaves and the change of color in my card making when Fall arrives! I chose a deep color palette for my Fall design today!

I used these Reverse Confetti products for my design:

I began my card with a 6 1/2 x 5 card base.

For the background, I first die cut the the panel from burgundy cardstock and trimmed the inside out using my paper trimmer to create a frame. I inked a piece of Bristol Smooth using a homemade cloud stencil with fossilized amber, scattered straw, and tea dye oxide inks. I used foam tape over the cloud background and stamped the sentiment along the top.

Next, I stamped the images from the Pick of the Patch stamp set onto watercolor paper, colored them with Zig watercolor markers, and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I arranged them along the frame either gluing or using foam tape for lots of dimension. I finished with a few gold jewels!

I hope you are inspired to join in the fun of the September Stock Your Stash challenge using some Halloween or Fall themes!

List of Zig colors used: deep red, ochre, light brown, deep green, and olive green

Thank you for visiting!

Happy Birdie Wishes!

Hi my ‘Fetti Friends it’s Candice with you today! I think that Reverse Confetti came out with these gorgeous Hummingbirds just for my mom and grandma who absolutely love them! My grandmother build her home in the mountains with a porch that wraps around the entire house so she could hang her hummingbird feeders and see them outside every window in her home! Of course I had to use these beauties for my mom’s birthday card this year!

I used these Reverse Confetti products for my slimline design:

I began my slimline with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.

For the background, I created the stitched slimline panel with the the Diagonal Stitches die using the partial die cut method (run through partway, rotate and line up, and run through partway again). I then inked the panel with abandoned coral and tea dye and splattered with white paint and gold shimmer spray using a damp paintbrush.

While that dried, I die cut 3 layers of the ‘MOM’ from thick white cardstock and set aside.

Next, I stamped the hummingbirds, wreaths, and bow, colored them with copic markers, and used the coordinating dies listed above to cut them out. I glued the wreaths down and used foam tape on the hummingbirds and flower bouquet and bow to give dimension to the card. I then heat embossed the sentiment in white on a black banner popping it up in the center of my middle wreath with foam tape and glued the ‘MOM‘ under. I finished with a sprinkling of gold jewels!

If you love this Hummingbird stamp set as much as I do, you should see how awesome it combines with so many of the floral sets in the Reverse Confetti shop, endless possibilities!

Thank you so much for stopping by with me today!
