You've Got Mail

Tuesday, July 16, 2019

It's an exciting day because I get to share a Pink & Main sneak peek of a few super adorable products coming in the July 20th release!!

For my card, I cut coral cardstock using one of the new Stamp Post dies. I love the new Envelope Die (seen at the top of my card) which I first cut with white cardstock as the 'base' then cut a color assortment of cardstock and 'colored in' the die with the inlaid die technique. 

And how cuuute is that little succulent image?!  It's from the new Succulents stamps and coordinating dies.  I then stamped one of the sentiments from the new Sent with Love set onto dark grey cardstock cut with one of the Stamp Post dies and another of the sentiments onto the envelope.  I lined my envelope with a pattern paper from the new Pen Pals 6x6 pad.


Beautiful Butterfly Birthday

What do you give someone special who has everything?  One of my best friends and I have known each other for almost 40 years and always make it a priority to celebrate our birthdays with dinner and a thoughtful gift.  This year, I decided to make her something special instead of buying a gift.

I made this card folder from scratch (with a lot of trial and error!); the two pockets contain 5 cards and coordinating envelopes featuring Butterfly Blossoms, Happy Mail, and Sentimental Sayings from the new July release! Scroll through to see each of the cards and the products I used...


 For the folder, I used pattern papers from Cue the Confetti, Darling Dots and Sweet Stripes.  I also filled the RSVP pen cylinder with pattern paper too.

This project was a labor of love and I hope my friend likes it!


Let's Hear It For The Boys!

Friday, July 12, 2019

Divinity Designs July Release is all about babies!  It's been a long time since anyone in my family has had a baby, but I'm looking forward to that day we do!

 My baby boy card was created using the Tri-Fold with Layers dies and paper cut from the new Baby Boy Paper Pad.  Using the dies in the new Baby Blessings, I created the center (onsie) and little die cuts along the side.  The sentiment from the new Sweet Baby set was stamped on white cardstock cut with one of the Circles Dies and layered with blue paper using one of the Scalloped Circle Dies.




Pink & Main - Making Memories

Tuesday, July 9, 2019

Summer travel takes people to all kinds of places making for wonderful memories of their experience.  We haven’t been able to get away this summer due to schedules, but looking forward to planning something for early next year.  I have, however, been able to have some fun with my Travel Buddy here!

For my card, I layered a piece of light blue cardstock cut with one of the Stitched Rectangles 2 dies.  I had created a background piece with Color Bursts a while back and thought it went well with the color scheme I had in mind, so I layered that piece as a side border.  I cut the smallest Reverse Scallop Square dies from different cardstock, placing a piece of white cardstock behind the frames.  Then came the super fun part…getting to color all these adorable images from the new Travel Buddy set with coordinating dies.  I added a glaze to the glasses and camera (which I guess wasn’t quite dry yet when I took these photos 😊)  To finish, I added the sentiment banner.


Reverse Confetti Release Day and Blog Hop!

Monday, July 8, 2019

The wait is finally over!!  The Reverse Confetti July Release is here and available in the store! We have a super fun blog hop today with the Design Team, Fetti Friends and special guests to celebrate!!

I created tags cut from Buttercup cardstock and patterns from the Sun & Sea paper pad then made a little pocket in each to slip in a lemonade drink mix.  On the outside, I added copic colored images from the new Lemonade Stand.  My tags were created to attach to water bottles for a cook out!


What do you think of Reverse Confetti's July Release?!  

In case you missed it - or need a little more inspiration - here are the other sneak peeks I shared over the last few days....
