Reverse Confetti–Release Blog Hop!

Hello peeps!!

Can you believe that it’s May 8th and already time for REVERSE CONFETTI’S first bi-monthly release?!  I know I’ve been anxiously awaiting this day, and I hope you’re just as excited as we all are!  To get things started, we invite YOU to hop along with the Confetti Crew and a few of Jen’s other stampy buddies that are helping her launch this fabulous new stamp company!

The hop started over on the REVERSE CONFETTI BLOG, and you should have made it here from the amazing Amy Kolling’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 to see using REVERSE CONFETTI’S first four brand new stamp sets!  I have two projects that I’d love to share with you, so let’s get started, shall we?!


My first project features the set called Dream In Color (available NOW – click HERE to buy it).  I designed and cut the rainbow out of different colors of designer paper using my Silhouette Cameo.  I sized each section of the rainbow so that it would be as wide as each of the letters.  I actually cut apart the word “COLOR” with my handy dandy scissors so that the letters would line up properly.  These stamps are so beautifully manufactured that cutting the stamp apart was a breeze!  Here’s a graphic of the entire set:

My second project features Peacock Pretties.  I am really digging the feather trend that I’m seeing lately, and more specifically the peacock feathers.  The bold and vibrant colors are something that I always love to work with because of my clean and simple style.  Here’s what I came up with:




I inked up one of my acrylic blocks with the three colors of ink, and then I “kissed” the feather stamp onto the block, making sure that it got plenty of coverage.  I then immediately stamped it onto the card base.  The ink well was again cut using my Silhouette Cameo.  I stamped the sentiment in gray ink, and inked it up a second time the same way that I inked up the feather image – by “kissing” it to the inked up block.  I then cut out the word “IMAGINATION” and popped it up with foam tape right over the top of the gray stamped word.  Peacock Pretties is also available NOW and can be purchased HERE.  Here is what the full set looks like:

I hope you’ve enjoyed hopping with us today.  Be sure and hop with us on the 8th of EVERY MONTH for more REVERSE CONFETTI inspiration!  Now it’s time to hop on over to the fabulous Amber Hight’s blog.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the hop order and list of all the participating designers over on the REVERSE CONFETTI BLOG!

Thanks for stopping by today – I so hope you love REVERSE CONFETTI as much as I do!  Toodles!
