RC March New Release Blog Hop


Hello Reverse Confetti friends!  Winter may be trying to hold on for dear life, but with the hopes of spring right around the corner, there’s a fresh new release from REVERSE CONFETTI

There are 6 new stamp sets and 5 new Confetti Cuts Dies (some of which coordinate perfectly with a few of the stamp sets, too).  Today, we’re hoping to put a “spring in your step” with our new release Blog Hop!  The Confetti Crew, Challenge Crew and a few of our friends have sprung into action with some fabulous projects to share this month using the newest RC products.  Hop along with us and catch “spring fever”!


The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog, and you should have made it here from Laurie’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 the new Reverse Confetti stamp sets and dies!

I have been so excited to show  you my blog hop cards. I had so much fun mixing and matching the different stamps and Confetti Cut dies that are now available for sale in the Reverse Confetti store. 
I used some fun, Spring colors and this past weeks Mojo Monday sketch to make this card. I am head over heals in love with the new Petals 'n Posies stamp set and matching dies. 


I started this off by stamping onto the rounded rectangle frame from Class Act dies. I used the Petals 'n Posies stamps to create a fun stamp background with the leave image and a few of the smaller petals. I then accented this panel with some die cut petals. Those dotted flower centers are my favorite. I added some stickles to them. 



I added a Beautiful Banner die, stamped with the matching border stamp and a sentiment from the Beautiful Banner stamp set. 


I know I have said it a lot this week, and I'll say it again. I ♥ that notebook edge. It's so easy to add in on any panel with the new Office Edges Confetti Cuts. I finsihed this card off with some stitching, my favorite twiney bows and a few enamel dots. 

I have a bit more of a clean and simple card coming up next. I used the same color pallet since the inks were still on my desk. 

I saw a card from the Lawn Fawn blog that had a similar stamped background. I knew I wanted to try it with the gorgeous new All About You stamp set. It was pretty easy to do with my handy dandy Stamp Press. I used a soft pretty ink, insulation pink and then filled in some white space with the small flower dots from Petals 'n Posies

I then inked up another sentiment (this is what is so great about the Key Words line of stamps from Reverse Confetti....mixing and matching and making your own custom sentiments) in navy ink. I added the graphic arrow in berrylicious ink to pull in one more accent color. 


I added some sequins and a single flower from Petals 'n Posies to complete the card. I stamped the top layer in Crisp Cantaloupe ink, die cut it with the matching die, and then added a larger vellum petal from the same die set. 

Here is a look at the full  stamp sets and Confetti Cut dies I used today. These are now available for purchase in the RC shop.
