Reverse Confetti May Birthday Bash + Blog Hop!




Today is the day!  It is the Reverse Confetti May Birthday Bash Release Blog Hop!  That means all the new release products that we've been sneak peekin' are now available in the shop!


We're celebrating with a blog hop and several of our 'Fetti Friends are helping up celebrate!  You should have arrived here from my fabulous teamie, Heather Hoffman's blog!  If not, you'll want to start at the beginning of the fun which is the Reverse Confetti blog!


I have 2 projects to share with you today and I picked 3 of my favorite Countdown to Confetti projects to share too.  First up is a retro-vibe card, I thought it would be a great way to showcase the new colors for May:


Bumblebee  •  Buttercup  •  Sunshine  •  Rust

This would make a great gender neutral encouragement card.  We all need some happy mail when things are necessarily going the way we thought it would.  

I can't wait to play with that awesome Swoosh Cover Panel more!  Have you seen how the Design Team has absolutely rocked it?!

Love the new One Day At a Time set!  Remember that proceeds from the One Day At a Time set benefit The Pink Fund!  "The Pink Fund provides 90 day non-medical cost-of-living expenses to breast cancer patients in active treatment for breast cancer, so they can focus on healing, raising their families, and returning to the workplace."


Next up is a Birthday card in celebration of Reverse Confetti's 4th Birthday!  I had sooo much fun designing this card!


My base is a Sunshine panel. I then layered a panel from the Pattern Play 6x6 paper pad.  I cut the Sunburst Tag Layer twice, one with Lime Green and then, keeping it real, I used the center of my Sunshine panel for the second Tag Layer.  Why not?  I back my panels to an A2 cardbase so it works perfectly 💛  I put the tag together and then stamped and die cut out my cake and cake plate from the Candles 'N Confetti set.  I used the Reverse Confetti Cloud White cardstock which works wonderfully with Zig Clean Color Markers.

I assembled my tag and set it aside.  I used the Leaf Lattice Stencil with modeling paste.  Love the added texture and pops of white on the yellow.  I finished it off with the sentiment from Simply Sentiments and scattered some pink enamel dots.


I topped it the Sunburst Tag Layer with white ribbon.  This card makes me happy...I adore Green + Yellow teamed up and then add pops of Pink...swoon!

Here are a couple of my favs from the Countdown to Confetti posts:















Up next is the fabulous Kathy Schweinfurth!  In case you get lost along the way, here's the hop listing:

You've been busy! I couldn't make that many cards in a week, but I struggle with creativity. I think the Buttercup yellow is the creamiest nicest shade of yellow I've seen in a very long time. Love it. Your cards are all wonderful!
