It’s Cris here, and today I wanted to share with you some ideas for when you want to say thanks. As you know this month we are featuring the gorgeous stamps and dies from Reverse Confetti:
And here is my first card:
If you know me and my style, you should know that I struggle with “vintage” but if I make it a little CAS, it gets a bit easier. I love the look of old paper, and using some patterned paper, the edge die from Reverse Confetti and some distress inks, it was easy to fake. I love that Poppy stamp from Hero Arts, and I stamped it by coloring directly to the stamp with Memento markers. Easy!
To finish the card, I added some twine and a piece of lace to give it the vintage look.
The set I used from Reverse Confetti, “Class Act”, is not vintage at all, but I think it works in this card. And to show you how great that set is, I went to a totally different style with my next card:
I achieved a graphic look by stamping the alpha from the set over and over. I loooove that alphabet. To create the sentiment, I just colored the letters individually with a marker, and stamped them one by one.
I colored some letters randomly using the colors from the background paper.
And I couldn’t leave you without a little present, cause it’s one of my favorite things to make:
This little parcel is super easy to create! Just take a piece of cardstock that measures 4 1/4″ x 11″ and score it at: 1″, 5″, 6″ and 10″.
This time to close it I used one of the dies from Reverse Confetti:
As you can see, you can create different styles with one stamp set easily 😉
Now, remember that you still have time to play along with our current challenge:
Thanks for stopping by!
It’s Teresa here with my solo post for August. I’m a little sad to see summer go by so quickly and that we are approaching back to school season! However, I’m excited for back to school because I know many of us will be busy with getting the kids ready, buying new supplies, etc., annnd some of us will have time to craft when the kids are gone for the day *ahem*.
This month we are featuring Reverse Confetti Stamps in all our challenges!
I wanted to create some simple tags that you can add on gifts for someone. The first tag I just used a simple black and white theme. I stamped out my flowers and the sentiment, added some sequins and some trimmings to the top.
For my second tag, I did a little more work. I embossed the envelope background on the tag and used distress ink to cover the entire tag. I stamped the crane onto another piece of cardstock and colored it using my copics. I adhered it with some foam tape and added some twine again.
For my last project I wanted to make a gift card holder and although this looks hard to do, its really simple! First I cut a piece of cardstock to 3″ X 10 1/2″ in. I scored at 4 3/8″ and 8 3/4″ in. I used the Office Confetti die cuts to cut out the flap and closure on each ends of the cardstock. I stamped out the background all over the panel.
For the bottle cap flair, I first flattened out the cap using the embossing pads and running it through my die cut machine as I would regular die cuts. I punched a circle using this cute clouds pattern paper and stamped out the “FLY” part of the sentiment only. I glued it in the center of the cap and added some dimensional magic and a sprinkle of glitter 🙂 After 3 hours, you will have this really cute flair button!
I think this makes a cute back to school gift for someone, don’t you think?
Now it’s your turn! Thanks for stopping by and be sure to link up your creations for a chance to score a fab prize!
It is Sarah here with my solo post. I am so excited that we have a collaboration with Reverse Confetti this month as their stamps and dies are fabulous!
I decided to combine their beautiful Petals n Posies stamps and dies with Hero Arts Be Happy Today set – and have made 3 quite different cards 🙂 I can’t wait to show you…..
Sindhu here with a bunch of cards to share with you.
We’re collaborating with Reverse Confetti in August. The team would be showcasing projects using products from Reverse Confetti and our beloved Hero Arts.
For the first card, I stamped the arrow heads stamp from Reverse Confetti ‘Paper crane’ stamp set repeatedly in two different colors at the bottom of the panel.
The back ground for the second card was created by stamping the arrow head stamp repeatedly in four different colors.
I love this sentiment and had to use it… Hence the butterfly card in the first place. 🙂
The next two cards are SO much fun to make. Took less than five min each to make them.
I wanted to frame the beautiful sentiment but didn’t want to use any stamp. Used my Hero Arts ‘Butter cup’ dauber to hand draw the image without squeezing it. Those dots were made using the dauber foam head.
I hope you like these cards.
