I’m playing along with ColourQ #351 with a CAS card:

ColourQ #351

The challenge colors initially had me stumped, but the inspiration photo brought to mind the Reverse Confetti “Peacock Pretties” stamp set. I decided on equal ratios of the purple, aqua and navy with the gold as the accent.

I stamped and heat-embossed the feather image from “Peacock Pretties” on cardstock, which I then cut with a banner die so that they would be the same size. The sentiment stamped in black is from the same set.

Shore Do Love You!

Today, I’m sharing a “just because” nautical card!

Shore Do Love You

The buoy is cut with the CottageCutz Life Preserver Die. This is a “new to me” company which has a number of nautical-themed dies. They provide quite a bit of detail (for example, while you can’t see it, the rope is textured). I stamped the background with the My Favorite Things Wood Plank Background (you can never have too many wood-textured backgrounds!) and then cut it with one of the Lawn Fawn dies.  I used a die in the My Favorite Things Die-namics Blueprints 20 set to cut the heat-embossed sentiment (Reverse Confetti Happy Harbor). I’m on the hunt for more nautical sentiment sets (I have many more nautical dies than nautical sentiments).

Supplies: CottageCutz Life Preserver die, Reverse Confetti Happy Harbor stamp set (retired)

Reverse Confetti December SFYTT

Have you seen this month’s Sketch for You to Try at Reverse Confetti?

I created a holiday card using the sketch as my starting point.

I cut one of the words from the Winter Words Confetti Cuts set out of gold foil paper and attached it to the circle cut from patterned paper. I heat-embossed one of the sentiments from the Winter Words Coordinates set onto the red rectangle. I embellished the card with leaves and berries cut with the Holly Confetti Cuts set.

I hope you’ll play along! Head on over to link up your card on the Reverse Confetti Blog for your chance to win a $20 Reverse Confetti gift certificate and the title of ‘Fetti Fave!

Reverse Confetti December Creative Blog Hop

BlogHopTitleBar

Welcome to this month’s creative hop which started on the Reverse Confetti blog. You should have made it here from Lisa’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!

I’m sharing a holiday layout (chronicling our annual trips to a local nursery to shop for our Christmas tree and other holiday items) for which I created embellishments using Reverse Confetti supplies.

JeanRCBlogHopLayout

I printed the journaling with my computer printer, stamped it with a sentiment from Here’s the Story and cut it with the Gift Card Holder die. I cut leaves and holly berries with the Holly Confetti Cuts and added those to the journaling card. To finish, I added snowflakes cut with the two different dies in the Layered Snowflake set.

Reverse Confetti “Look for Rainbows”

Today, I’m sharing a CAS encouragement card using Reverse Confetti stamps and dies.

I cut the rainbows out of watercolored paper with one of the dies  in the Weather It Together set (I cut a red rainbow, orange rainbow, green rainbow and blue rainbow each nine times) and adhered the rainbows to the card base. I heat-embossed one of the sentiments from the Shine From Within set on black cardstock and cut it with a die in the Class Act set, adhering the panel to the card base with dimensional adhesive.

No matter what the season, this sentiment is always appropriate!

Reverse Confetti – Easy As Pie

Today, I’m sharing a “just because” CAS card, made with Reverse Confetti stamps and dies, with the theme of Thanksgiving (and apple pie) on my mind.

Jean Manis Reverse Confetti Easy As Pie

I used the Class Act set to cut the apple and Easy As Pie to create the pie. I added hearts cut with the Shakers ‘n Frames and Donut You Know sets. I stamped a sentiment from the Easy As Pie stamp set onto the white card base.

Hope you have a fantastic Thanksgiving (and delicious pie)!

Reverse Confetti at 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Reverse Confetti is teaming up with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags Event.
Jean Manis Reverse Confetti Holiday Tags

For both tags, I used the Thanks Tag Confetti Cuts die as the base to which I added a tag reinforcement cut from silver cardstock with one of the Hang Ups dies. Both tags feature a white, silver, aqua and red color scheme.

For the first tag, I cut a tree and branches with Branch Out and added a sentiment cut with Winter Words. I used the banner die in Tag Me as a visual anchor.

SFYTT30_NOV15I created a CAS holiday card in non-traditional colors using the sketch as my starting point.

For the background, I cut garlands from brushed silver cardstock with the Circle Garland Confetti Cuts set and adhered them to a white cardstock base. I embellished the circles with a snowflake cut with the Let It Snow Confetti Cuts set and with a tree and branches from Branch Out. I heat-embossed a sentiment from Seasonal Sentiments on a teal blue cardstock strip. I attached the circles to the card base with dimensional adhesive.

Reverse Confetti Crazy for Christmas: Memory Keeping

Welcome to the final day of Reverse Confetti Crazy for Christmas – an event to provide ideas and inspiration for the holidays! Today we’re featuring Christmas Memory Keeping projects! I’ve included a list of everyone sharing ideas today at the end of the post.

I created a Painter’s Tray Memory Box capturing some of our family’s Christmas memories.

Reverse Confetti Memory Keeping Tray

I embellished four panels with Reverse Confetti die cuts. On five of the panels, I included holiday photos taken over the years. I printed journaling, (created on the computer), on vellum, which I backed with double-sided adhesive and attached to patterned paper for three of the panels.

For the first panel, I created a title on my computer which I attached to a large snowflake cut with the Layered Snowflake Confetti Cuts.

MemoryKeepingSnowflake

The “Deck the Halls” panel includes garlands cut from gold glitter paper with the Circle Garland Confetti Cuts.

MemoryKeepingGarland

I cut the wreath with the smaller dies in the Wreaths Confetti Cuts set and added a bow from the Tagged Tote Confetti Cuts set.

I cut the larger tree from the Branch Out Confetti Cuts set and added branches cut from gold glitter paper.

Reverse Confetti Crazy for Christmas: Gift Giving

Welcome to the second day of Reverse Confetti Crazy for Christmas – an event to provide ideas and inspiration for the holidays! Today we’re featuring Christmas Gift Giving projects! I’ve included a list of everyone sharing ideas today at the end of the post.

For my first project, I created a tag with the Gift Card Holder Tag decorated to look like Santa’s suit.

GiftGiving1

I added a heat-embossed sentiment from the Tinsel ‘n Trim set and buttons cut with one of the Hang Ups die. I also attached a die-cut “Ho Ho Ho” conversation bubble (using the Jolly Holiday stamp set and coordinating die) to the gift card. The gift underneath is a coloring book, and I plan to include either an envelope with cash for art supplies or an art supply store gift card.

My next project is a tag for the coffee lover on your list, created with the partial cutting technique and one of the dies in the Caffeinated Cups Confetti Cuts set.

GiftGiving3

I cut the cup out of a folded cardstock rectangle leaving a section on the left-hand side intact. For the interior, I stamped a sentiment from Tinsel ‘n Trim on red cardstock with white pigment ink and cut it with the coffee cup wrap die included in the Caffeinated Cups Confetti Cuts set.

For the exterior of the tag, I stamped the Caffeinated Cups stamp set images, cut them the coordinating dies and attached them to the front of the white cardstock tag. I used the Hang Ups Confetti Cuts to create a tab on the back through which I strung the baker’s twine.

I also created an up-cycled gift tag for coffee using a Starbucks holiday cup.

UpcycledCoffeeTag-2

I cut the coffee cup with the Caffeinated Cups Confetti Cuts die and added latte art from the Caffeinated Cups stamp set. I created the tag with the Gift Card Holder Tag from patterned paper. I cut the coffee cup with the Hang Ups die set, through which I strung cord to tie around the coffee bag. This tag took just a few minutes to put together!

My last project is a tag for individually wrapped cookies featuring a heat-embossed sentiment from the With Love set.

I embellished the tag, cut with the Thanks Tag Confetti Cuts, with die cuts from the Holly set. This one is easy to mass produce.

There’s lots of inspiration being shared today by the design team, check it out!
