Countdown to Confetti...Day Three!

Today is the final day of sneak peeks before the  Reverse Confetti July release tomorrow...
The card I've made today was made with the cool new set of stamps, My World, and Confetti Cuts dies, Globe!  What a very fun and versatile die and sentiments these are!!  I made this card thinking of my daughter who lives 700 miles away from me, in Nashville, TN.  I just LOVED using a map in this heart filled globe...the map in this globe was from a piece of scrapbook paper of the United States I found at Hobby Lobby.  Die cutting around the state of Tennessee, along with this sentiment from the set,  well...a perfect match to let my Hannah  know that I love her!!  I used woodgrain textured paper for the globe and layered it twice...
All the amazing stamps, dies and Quick Card panels will be availlable for purchase...
...that's Tomorrow:)!!

Countdown to Confetti...Day Two!

Today is Reverse Confetti's day two of three, in the countdown to the July release, over at the Reverse Confetti blog!  I will be sharing a couple cards I made using the two stamp sets and Confetti Cuts dies being sneak peeked today,  from the FIVE new stamp sets, SIX new Confetti Cuts dies and the new Quick Card panels being released ...

... on July 8th!!
The first card uses the Posted Note Sentiments stamp set and its coordinating Confetti Cuts dies, along with one of the new Weather or Dots {and Stripes) Quick Card Panels!   I LOVE the clip board die and these sentiments!!  I used wood veneer paper for my clip board (stained and layered), used some shiny silver paper for the clip, and used some lined patterned paper to stamp my sentiment on...


The second card uses the other set being sneaked today, You Are A Star stamp set and coordinating Confetti Cuts dies...
I stamped the star  with navy ink on a blue-green paper, stamped the sentiment from the Posted Note Sentiments stamp set and used another of the very cool Weather or Dots {and Stripes} Quick Card panels along with some twine I colored with my Prismacolor markers, so it's color matched the card.  Popped up the panel on Navy card. 
 Ok...SO MUCH FUN, AGAIN!!
Here are pics of the new products I used on my cards:)!...

Coundown to Confetti...Day One!

I am SO excited to be a part of the Reverse Confetti design team, The Confetti Crew(jumping up and down!!),  sharing a couple sneak peak cards with you today from Reverse Confetti's amazing upcoming release!!  There will be FIVE new stamp sets, SIX new Confetti Cuts dies and a new set of Quick card panels in this month's release!  Today, I'll be sneaking cards made with 2 of those new sets, starting with an adorable alligator...
 The alligator and sentiment are from the new set, Later Alligator...cute little alligator, right?!  The colors I chose to color this alligator go PERFECTLY with not only the new Quick Card panel he's sitting on, but  the Reverse Confetti colors, too, right?!...

The new products I'm sneaking today and for the next two days will be released and available for purchase on...

I stamped, die cut, then colored the alligator.  I thought this alligator was adorable with the "smile" sentiment right below his tooth filled "smile".  I layered the gator and adhered him to one of the new Weather or Dots {and Stripes} Quick Card panels...LOVE these panels...they make for quick, wonderful cards!!  I used a piece of burlap to emboss the white card for some  added texture...

Couldn't resist one more card using the other sweet set being sneaked today, Weather it Together...
I stamped and die cut the cute umbrella with the stamp and coordinating Confetti Cuts die, stamped and colored the umbrella, and adhered to card that had been stamped with a puddle and sentiment stamps from the same set and versamarked stripes from an older Reverse Confetti stamp set, So Stripey.  Here's a close up...
Having so much fun creating with these new stamps, dies, and papers!!  Here are pics of the new products I used on my cards...

Mom's Musical Group 2015

My mom is the Sunshine Committee for her music group...she is in charge of sending birthday cards to the members:)!  I make musical themed cards for her each year...here are a couple of the cards I made last night....will be making them all the same design, and simply changing up the color of the flower...

 I DO struggle each year to make a card that is musical, flowery, simple and EASY...just because there are so many to make (40-50).  So... I opted for a big flower with a musical scored background. I used textured paper for the flower for added...texture:):)!   I DID use craft foam under my main panel, as mailing cards with craft foam for lift, as opposed to a bunch of pop up squares, will fare better when they get to the recipient:)!!  I chose the sentiment, "Happy Birthday to you" to mimic the song...musical...hey, I tried:)!!  Adding the die cut middles and leaves...it took a while to put each of  these cards together due to so many elements, not as simple, but an easy card to make:)!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

A Thank You Card and Some Exciting News!!

I have been keeping some news undercover for over a month, but can finally  "let it out" today!  It was announced today on the Reverse Confetti Blog... I am so honored, thrilled, and excited to have been asked by Jen del Muro, the owner of Reverse Confetti,  to be a part of her design team!!!  I was a "Fetti Friend" guest designer last year and again earlier this year, and fell in love with this company, so Jen's invitation was one I had secretly hoped for and quickly said YES to:)!!  Jen's team, the Confetti Crew, is FILLED with some AMAZING ladies and artists... they are such a sweet group of ladies,...humbled and thrilled to be a part of this team!!  I made a card this morning with a Reverse Confetti stamp and a couple dies:):)...
I used the Star Garland Confetti Cuts die, Fancy Words Confetti Cuts, and Circle Sentiements stamp set.  I layered each of the 3 garlands twice and used separate garlands(one each of the three colors) that I cut the stars from for the individual stars....FUN!!!  Hope you will join me starting July 5th for the start of the sneaks for the July Release at Reverse Confetti...thanks for letting me share my great news with you...Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

Many Thanks One Layer...Two Ways

 The newly released stamp set, Many Thanks, from Simon Says Stamp is SO much fun to create with!! I made a couple quick, one layer cards today, that were pretty easy to make, and I think the flower stamps in this set are just plain pretty!!...
 I used two new inks from Simon on this first card, Melon and Duckling, along with Simon's Green Apple for the leaves.  Embossed the sentiment and added a ribbon...sweet!!

The second one, I opted to keep the flowers in two of the four corners of the card...
  For this one, I also used two more of the pretty new inks from Simon, Rosie Cheeks and Hollyhock.  I clear embossed the sentiment, then sprinkled more embossing powder on the sentiment right after heating, then heat embossed it again...gives the sentiment a thick, smooth, glossy look...
Ok..bunches of fun...get it?...bunches of flowers?!....Oh, I'm so funny:)!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
