Here is my card for this week's colors. I used the beautiful Farmhouse Wreath stamp set from Reverse Confetti. I love that there are extra floral images that you can use to create a beautiful background. I was looking for a wallpaper-like feel, yet didn't want it to over power the card, so I stuck with Midnight ink stamped on Cloud White Card stock. I layered that over top of some polka dotted paper from an old 6x6 paper pad, Darling Dots



I stamped the wreath image onto cloud white cardstock and and Midnight ink and then used my Zig markers to do some simple water coloring. I an extra bow and floral  and use the matching Farmhouse Wreath Confetti Cuts to cut them out. I adhere them with some foam dots for extra dimension. 


I went back and forth on how I wanted to do the sentiment and decided on a Midnight layered hello word die from the Hello & Thanks Label.

I had some fun with the Brand New Catherine Pooler Inks on today's card. Thank-you to CP for allowing me to help sneak peek them.  They are so beautiful and I am excited to share them with you today. I used the Serenade, Ink the Park, and Pucker Up inks for my snowflakes and they were perfect for this week's colors.  The Bunny Slopes stamp set is full of adorable images and sweet little sentiments. 

I colored up the bunny couple with copics and added the sentiment in Midnight ink to the center of the card.

Reverse Confetti January RELEASE is LIVE!

Today is the day! The Reverse Confetti January Release is LIVE! I am so happy you are here with me. It's always a great day when you can get some new, fabulous stamps and Confetti Cuts from Reverse Confetti

I was really excited to use some of the smaller images from Picture Perfect on a lovey card and keep it Clean & Simple. I started with the Outlined Frame Cover Panel in Premium Polar White and then used the sentiment from Picture Perfect to inspire my card. 

I colored up the drive-in image and popcorn and then used the Picture Perfect Confetti Cut and added them to the center of the card base along with a Midnight outline heart from the Big Love Confetti Cuts. I balanced out the card front with a scattering of the stars from Picture Perfect


I have one more card for you today. I had to use another of the cuties from Love is in the Air. I started with the Outline Frame Confetti Cut.


I adore the sweet little raccoon from Love is in the Air and colored him up with Copics. I then cut him out with the coordinating Love is in the Air Confetti Cuts


I wanted to pack a punch with the sentiment so I combined the Big Love Confetti Cuts with a sentiment from Love is in the Air. I love how you can layer up the Big Love CC with Piggy Bank and Salsa card stock. I then tucked in some of the clouds from Cloudy Days Cover Panel. I added a touch of sparkle with some chunky glitter.

It's a fan favorite day....the Dawn Machell sets. So much cuteness. First up from me is Picture Perfect. It is just so fun to play with. created this sweet little scene and used the matching Confetti Cuts to cut out all the bits and parts. 


I satarted with the new Outlined Frame Cover Panel and masked off the outside and then did some ink blending to create a night sky. I then colored up the images from the Picture Perfect set and cut each out with the coordinating Picture Perfect Confetti Cuts


My second card started with the All Hearts Cover Panel in Premium Polar White. Then I cut the Layered XOXO Confetti Cut from Grape Soda and Iced Aqua. I then colored up the sweet pup from Love is In the Air stamp set.

Today's card is simple and classic. It uses a stamp set called Farmhouse Wreath. I channeled my best Joanna Gaines and even added a little Shiplap to my card. It was easy to create with my Scor-pal and some Cloud White cardstock. I scored every 1/4 inch.  I then colored up the Farmhouse Wreath with Copics and used the coordinating Farmhouse Wreath Confetti Cuts


I used one of the sentiments from Word of Love stamped in Stormy ink. I added the finished panel onto a Stone top folding card base.

Reverse Confetti Countdown to Confetti-Day 1

Happy New Year!  It's time for the January Countdown to Confetti! I couldn't be more excited to share the goodness with you all here on my blog. I love this release. Reverse Confetti Release goes LIVE January 8!!

We are kicking things off today with the fabulous sentiment set, Words of Love. It's done up in a fan favorite font. I love how the words look stamped in different colors or stamped in black and then colored up. I first stamped out most of the phrases on to two pieces of Cloud White card stock. One in all Midnight ink and the other with shades of pink and red: Piggy Bank, Rose, Flamingo, Salsa, and Wine inks. What is that cool wrap, you ask? It's a new Confetti Cut called Pencil & Treat Holder. I chose to fold it up on itself and tucked in a yummy Lindor chocolate. 


I love that this die also comes with a sweet little tag. I added some solid hearts in Piggy Bank ink with a stamp from a set releasing later this week. I added the "be mine" in Salsa ink. I tied it up with some twine a button. The final detail is the scalloped edge that I die cut with the Pencil & Treat Holder Confetti Cut out of Salas card stock I trimmed off the rest of the die, so I could just use the scallped edge. 


My other treat holder I kept to a more simple black and white color combo and added pops of color with a heart die from the new Big Love Confetti Cut. This time I colored in the Words of Love  sentiment with a pink Copic marker. 



Thanks for stopping by today. I have more to share tomorrow.
