It's Day Two of the Reverse Confetti Countdown to Confetti!   You are going to be amazed at all of the new products for this month! Please note that new product links will not be active until release day/time.



We're so happy to have the following designers for our May | June 'Fetti Friends:


This month is super special, it's a belated May Release to celebrate Reverse Confetti's 7th Birthday!

Today we're featuring:

Girl Power

I'm also featuring:

Friendly Rainbow [Free with purchase]
Big Burst confetti cuts
GRL PWR confetti cuts

Here's how I was inspired:


Let's starts with the card that features the Friendly Rainbow set.  It is Free with $60 Purchase, add this set to your cart and the discount is automatic.  Quantities are LIMITED and there will be no re-ordering so get it when you can.  Everyone needs a Friendly Rainbow!  This is such a fun little set that has so many possibilities.


I went super clean and simple with this design and stamped it in copic friendly black ink.   I went with a pastel color palette, my favorite these days.


The copics I used are:

R20 | R21
YR000 | YR01
Y11 | Y21
G0000 | G00
BG10 | BG11 | BG34
V01 | V12


My other cards for today feature Girl Power.  Here's my first one:


That particular image along with the sentiment says a lot.  I love this new set for all the positive vibes it communicates.

I used 1/4 inch strips of:

Flamingo
Tangerine
Bumblebee
Lime Green
Iced Aqua
RC Aqua
Grape Soda


The image and sentiment have been stamped on Premier Polar White and cut with the Big Burst.  I colored the image in various skin colors:

E42 | E43 
E15 | E37
E53 | E34  

The main base is Midnight.


Here's my other Girl Power set that also includes the GRL PWR confetti cuts:


I used the same cardstock colors from the design above but this time I used 1/2 inch strips:

Flamingo
Tangerine
Bumblebee
Lime Green
Iced Aqua
RC Aqua
Grape Soda

The GRL PWR has been die cut on a Midnight strip.  I layered a couple of the All Framed Up confetti confetti cuts.


The girls from Girl Power have been colored with copics:

YG01| YG03
V15 | V17
E11 | E33
E51 | E53
N4 | N6


I loved how this turned out and know exactly who I'm sending it to.  Of course the girl on the right is me :)  The girl on the left is my friend.


I can't wait to hop around and see what my teamies designed!  Leave a comment on all the sneak peeks post for each designer.  Comments will close at noon CST on June 7th and there will be a $15 Gift Certificate for one blog commenter and also one FB commenter.  Make sure you pop over to the Reverse Confetti Blog for all the details!

That's it for me!  Up next is Olga Matyushevskaya!  In case you get lost along the way, here's the hop listing.

Sketched Florals stamp + coordinating confetti cuts

Here's how I was inspired:


Let's chat about my Sketched Florals card:


I LOVE this set.  There are outlines and color fillers.  For those that don't want to use copics, this is a perfect set for you.  All the ink on my card are Confetti Colors Ink Pads:

Bellini
Pistachio


So I started off with a Darling Dots panel and layered the Large Eyelet Cover Panel and one of the All Framed Up pieces in Premier Polar White.

The new Inside Scallop Circle Tag has been cut from Premier Polar Thie and layered on top.  I stamped out the Sketched Florals in:

Bellini
Pistachio
Midnight


The sentiment has been heat embossed in white on Midnight cardstock.  I finished off the card with some black twine.

Next up is Bowl of Blooms:


This is such a beautiful set, I LOVE peonies!  I kept with an overall Bellini and Pistachio color palette.  Here are the copics I used:

YR000 | YR00 | YR02| YR61
YG01 | YG03
G0000 | G00


My base is a panel from the Sweet Stripes 6x6 that has been layered under the new Center Circle Cover Panel.

Stand for Something | Inspired by Challenge - Colorful Kicks




Hello and Welcome to another new Inspired By Challenge!  There is also an optional sketch challenge:


Here's how I was inspired:


Although you might not readily notice, I combined the photo inspiration with the sketch challenge.  This actually turned out quite differently from what I had originally planned.

I was going to use the MFT All Star High Top Die-namics as my focal point.  Then I saw the sketch challenge and thought I'd go a clean + crisp route with a touch of rainbow goodness.


Love that sentiment from the LLD Be Original set.

I used the following copics:

G03 | G05
BG13 | BG15
B34 | B37
BV04 | BV34


I can't wait to see how my other teamies were inspired, please check out the Inspired by Challenge Blog!
