February Creative Hop | Reverse Confetti




Hello!  Today is the 8th of the month which means it's time for the Reverse Confetti Creative Hop!  You should have arrived here from my teamie, Heather Hoffman.  If not, you'll want to start at the beginning of the hop which is the Reverse Confetti blog!

I needed a couple more Valentine's Day cards to send out so I decided to make a card duo.


I'm really enjoying the latest release, how about you?  I've combined Big Bear with Heart Pals.  I added sentiments from earlier releases.  Let's chat about my first card, Happy Heart Day.

I've been really smitten with Grape Soda these days.  Both cards start with the Diagonal Stitches Cover Panel run through with Grape Soda cardstock.  They've been trimmed down to 4.25 x 4.25 inches.  The Premier Polar White panels are 3.75 x 3.75 inches.  I used the coordinating ink with the Heart Stencil.  It's out of stock right now but you can add your email address when it is restocked.


Each of the cards also have a smidge of Reverse Confetti packing paper.  Love to find ways to upcycle it.  The sentiment is from Heart Filled Sentiments.  Love the bold font.

My other card uses the same overall design and panels.


The background?  I inked up bubble wrap with Grape Soda.  The sentiment is from the Simply Sentiments set.


Next up is the fabulous Kathy Schweinfurth!  In case you get lost along the way, the full hop listing is available below!

  3. You have to laugh - where's the green??! Just kidding. These are adorable, and I love how you've upcycled packing materials. Such cutie pie bears and I'm loving the wagon! The purples are pretty, too. Not too gray, not too bright; just right if you ask me. Darling cards! Have a great weekend. Bev
