Reverse Confetti / April Blog Hop

RC April Blog Hop

Welcome to the Reverse Confetti April Blog Hop!
Make sure to check out the Reverse Confetti blog for all the details of this hop and for a full list of inspiration and information.  

I am ready for spring and the magical time where flowers start blooming!  It's starting and I'm so ready for color and warmth!

I created this rainbow card perfect for a magical birthday!  
I used the adorable images (my favorite is this tree!!) from Enchanted Garden.  The images were Copic colored and die cut.  They were layered over a rainbow background made out of cardstock strips in Reverse Confetti cardstock colors.  The large cloud border at the bottom is from the Head in the Clouds Cover Panel which is the perfect place for stamping the sentiment.  A few clouds from Over the Rainbow Confetti Cuts.  For the sparkle you need when working with this set, shimmer pen was added over the wings and tree branches.

Avery Elle / Everyday Circle Tags


I am sharing a card using the Everyday Circle Tags stamps.  I will be reaching for this set over and over especially with it's handwritten script!  I love the sentiments paired with the Arial font!!!

Oh baby

I paired the oh BABY sentiment from the Everyday Circle Tags with the adorable Peek-a-Boo Birthday Tag Toppers Elle-ments.  The animals were die cut and paper pieced together.  

To make the animals the focal points of the card, three circles from Holiday Circle Tags Elle-ments were die cut from white cardstock and ink blended with grey ink.  The sentiment was stamped on one and trimmed down.  These circles were adhered to a background made with pattern paper from The Spring Collection 6x6 Paper Pad and a white frame created with the Double Pierced Rectangle Elle-ments.  To finish the card, the animals were added with foam adhesive, a few accents were stamped, and some white gems added.

Reverse Confetti / HOPE

Hello 'Fetti Fans!  I am excited to share a project with you featuring some Reverse Confetti products

There is not much more you need other than this fabulous HOPE Coordinates Confetti Cut and Hope Coordinates sentiment set.  I did pair it with the Center Circle Cover Panel Confetti Cuts.


The background of the card was ink blended with Broken China Distress Ink as well as a standard circle die.  The bottom of the word 'hope' was also ink blended just a bit at the bottom leaving the top white.  The shadow part of the word was die cut out of Midnight Cardstock.  The word itself was die cut 4 times and layered together for dimension.  The sun die was sandwiched in between the layers.  A supporting sentiment was stamped and added with foam adhesive.  As a finishing touch, a few white gems were added.

Avery Elle / Superheroes


I am sharing a fun card for a HERO.  This card could easily be made to give to anyone!  

***Shop for Avery Elle HERE***


The background was done with ink blending Blueprint Sketch onto a panel of white cardstock.  Once done, the panel was die cut using the Ray Elle-ments and then splattered with water, Clear Shimmer Spray, and white pigment ink.  It's a fun sparkly background in person!  

The building outlines were white heat embossed onto black cardstock and die cut.  The buildings were added with foam adhesive to a landscape oriented card.  Three superheros were Copic colored, die cut, and added to the scene with foam adhesive.  To personalize this for a DAD, the speech bubble die from this set was stamped with words from the Superheroes stamp set.

Reverse Confetti / Alcohol Ink

I have a card using Alcohol Inks and Alcohol Lift Ink.  I've had some new synthetic paper I wanted to play with from Etc. Papers, so I brought out the alcohol inks.  

Alcohol ink 

A panel of synthetic paper was made using Cranberry, Pink Sherbet, Watermelon Alcohol Inks along with alcohol blending solution.  I love these colors together.  Once this panel was dry, using alcohol lift ink from Ranger, the bold, thick Peony image from the Peony stamp set was stamped.  The image was repeatedly stamped and then buffed, lifting the ink.  This makes such a subtle background pattern!  This panel was trimmed down and matted with a white panel.

Using the Peony Confetti Cuts, the leaf grouping image was die cut twice out of vellum.  The vellum images were adhered mid panel to the alcohol background.  To ground my die cut sentiment, a thin strip of white cardstock was adhered across the panel.  The word 'hello', from Thanks and Hello Word Duos Confetti Cuts, was die cut three times and adhered together for dimension.  As a last touch, a few small gems were added to the panel.

Avery Elle / Look for Rainbows

Hello!!  I am here today sharing a few cards that are rainbow inspired!!  

***Shop for Avery Elle HERE***

This first card uses the mini stamp set called Look for Rainbows.  I couldn't let this image go by without coloring the umbrella in rainbow fashion!!  Images were colored with Copic markers, die cut, and added with foam adhesive to a Quilted Frame Elle-ments done in white cardstock and backed with pattern paper from The Holiday Collection Paper Pad.  The sentiment fit perfectly stamped in the open space in the background.  Die cut raindrops with Glossy Accents finished off the card.

This second card uses the Rainbow Builder stamps along with the adorable smiling sun from Sunshine.  My sun and rainbow was stamped, diecut, and added to the Cloud Mat Elle-ments background.  A double layer die cut Happy Birthday Elle-ments was added in bold black carstock with white pigment pen dots to tie in with the dotted clouds.  To finish, a few clusters of stamped and die cut hearts were added.
