REVERSE CONFETTI JANUARY RELEASE BLOG HOP


Hello friends! It's time for the Reverse Confetti January release Blog Hop! 


Our new products AVAILABLE here


At the moment, I'm still waiting for my release package and can't share my ideas with you. However, I really hope that one day I can still show you something, because I'm filled with ideas!

However, Reverse Confetti have a lot of great products available that inspire me no less than something new. So I decided to make a card using a super cool Snail Mail set. I think the mail theme always goes well with the Valentine's Day theme, doesn't it?


I made this large towering image from the set, stamped it in black hybrid ink and colored it with copic markers. Then I die cut the image out with the coordinating dies.


I also used the Celebrate Tag Confetti Cuts to back this cute image. The tag was ink blended with reds and greens, and splattered for a fun effect. I also stamped the sentiment from the Words of Love stamp set. Then, I colored this sentiment in reds.


And finally, I added the tag to the pattern paper over foam tape, and then the image and sentiment onto the tag over foam tape. I also decorated my card with three shiny hearts that I cut out using You Confetti Cuts.


Hope you enjoyed the products featured in today’s post and be sure to also check out the Reverse Confetti Blog for more inspirations from participating designers and other products introduced today!

REVERSE CONFETTI DECEMBER CREATIVE HOP

Hello and welcome to the Reverse Confetti monthly creative hop!

It’s an off-month so there’s no new release, so it’s the perfect time to play with some older goodies and inspire you to maybe use some stamps you may already have in your stash.

You'll find the full hop list at the end of this post.

I share with you a holiday card where I mixed many different sets of stamps.


I stamped the images from Joys of the Season and Holiday Gnomes stamp set in black hybrid ink and colored them with my alcohol markers. 
I also stamped a bear in the school bus from the School Days stamp set. But I transformed the school bus into a festive one by removing the inscription at the top of the bus and adding a beautiful wreath instead. This wreath is from the Birdie Buddies stamp set. 


 Next I die cut the images out with the  Joys of the SeasonSchool Days and Holiday Gnomes Confetti Cuts. So I got a funny picture where a bear on a holiday bus carries a lot of gifts. 


Next I die cut a panel with a center piece window using new Open Drop Cover Panel Confetti Cuts and made a shaker. And I placed the images on the shaker panel. 


Once that was done, I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Holiday Wishes stamp set and put it on the bus. All finished!

Scrappy Tails Crafts Guest Designer

Hello friends! I had the honor to collaborate with a wonderful cardmaking brand Scrappy Tales. And I can't wait to share with you my ideas using the wonderful products of this company. This is my first and not the last post about it here.

My first card feature the Russian Winter Village stamp set. As you already know, I am a Russian crafter. So making a card with this set was something intimate for me, filled with special magic. I tried to show here the festive winter atmosphere on Red Square in Moscow. There is even a Moscow Kremlin here! Yay!


I started by stamping some images using Memento Espresso Truffle Ink Pad. I colored them using Copic Markers. And I cut them out with scissors (coordinating dies available here). I added some highlights using white gel pen.


Next I created a winter ink blended background.  I also used here the Music Note Swirl Stencil Set of Two Layering Stencils. But I used only swirly lines stencil. I think using it this way gave my sky the appearance of the northern lights.


The last step was to add my images to my card, which I did using some foam squares behind it for extra dimension. How beautiful this atmosphere is, isn't it? 


I also stamped the sentiment to the bottom of the card. Once that was done, I decorate my card with some snowflakes.



The second and no less significant card for me. I used here gorgeous Nutcracker Ballet stamp set. As you know, it was the famous Russian composer Tchaikovsky who wrote his 71 compositions - "The Nutcracker" ballet. So this is another special theme for me.


I decided to create a magical atmosphere of the fairy tale in my card, the moment of waiting for the New Year to come.


First I created a simple ink blended background. Next I used here the Sheet Music Stencil Set of Two Layering StencilsI did simple blending through the first layer (the lines of the sheet music).  
And next I used the top layer stencil (the actual music notes that sit on the sheet music lines) and I applied white embossing paste through the mask on the base. To make the paste shimmer, I also sprinkled it with fine glitter on top.  In order for the glitter to have time to fix on the paste, it is important to have time to apply it before the paste freezes.


Next I stamped these beautiful images in a black hybrid ink and colored them with my alcohol markers. Then I cut them out with scissors (coordinating dies available here)


I also stamped the sentiment to the bottom of the card.


 Finally I placed the images on the panel. All finished!
