Reverse Confetti and CardMaker Blog Hop

Hello everyone! I'm very excited to be joining the Reverse Confetti design team today for a blog hop, featuring their products. They were kind enough to send us products to use!

If Reverse Confetti is new to you, I think you're in for a treat! The products are darling. The images are super cute, the fonts are modern and there are plenty of dies for any type of project. I'm a huge fan and a happy customer. To inspire you, we have a fantastic line-up today of designers with great projects.

You should have arrived from Laurie Schmidlin's blog. However, I've included the entire hop list below in the event you've gotten off track.

I've created two projects to share with you today.

Let's Celebrate

The sentiments of the Celebrations stamp set are really wonderful. I created a quick card with minimal supplies. In fact, I think this would be a great card to create in multiples.

It's impossible to tell in the picture, but I added a bit of shimmer to the stamped confetti before adding the sequins.


I thought of this as soon as I saw the stitched pocket in the Tie-Rific Confetti Cuts and it translated just as I imagined! It's a pocket card... with a pocket! My dad is a button-down shirt kind of guy and I thought of him as I created. I used a natural white cardstock to match the off-white buttons. And the white center panel reminded me of dad's undershirts. ;)

The pocket card was created from a 4.25" x 11" strip of cardstock. I scored at 5.5" (just like a top-folding card). I used a super-strong adhesive to adhere the sides of together. However, the deviation in this version is to fold down one corner for my collar.

Of course, the little pocket is a perfect place to tuck an added sentiment. I inked each word separately, stamped, and cleaned carefully before repeating with the second word. It's just as easy to cut the stamps apart, if you don't mind a little polymer surgery.

I did keep both cards fairly simple, but hope you enjoyed.

The next stop in our hop is the lovely and talented Heather Pulvirenti. I believe there will be a prize with this hop ($25 gift certificate), announced on the Reverse Confetti blog.

Thank you for visiting! Have a great day!
